** While incredibly funny at first, George's logic about going to Velvet Falls to find [[spoiler: lost files that are important to the case]], saying that if they don't find them, they'll become more powerful, becomes more meaningful near the endgame. [[spoiler: George has a very big obsession with "power", due to his mother [[FreudianExcuse beating him with branches when he was younger]]]].

** York's response to Emily meeting him [[SheCleansUpNicely all dolled-up]] is to say she's "already a goddess of the forest." [[spoiler:No, York, but she will be by the end of the game]].

For that matter a lot of chain-link fences are surprisingly sturdy and won't budge even if you slam your car into them.
