** The Mayor's assistant (and acting Mayor) explains to Sam that one of the issues he might run into when trying to claim a planet is that the current law states any group can lay claim to an undeveloped planet if they manage to establish permanent human presence. However, the law is vague enough that many corporations and countries seed the cosmos with millions of sublight probes containing a few human cells each. Very few are actually interested in planets, per se - it's the money they seek to extort from people who ''actually'' want the planet. Sam being Sam, he immediately views this (not inaccurately) as a scam.

** It's also played with in a few cases. Not only do angry mobs generally tend to form by [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff900/fv00820.htm group consensus]], but there's also the possibility that they might go [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff900/fv00823.htm off]] [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff900/fv00824.htm the]] [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff900/fv00827.htm rails]] at a moment's notice. Thankfully, ice cream is a unifying factor and a fine salve all in all.

* IronicEcho: Dr. Bowman is a self-admitted sociopath who [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2700/fc02636.htm doesn't concern himself with things which might have happened, but didn't.]] This is then echoed later during Mr. Kornada's trial, when he can't be bothered to concern himself with [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff3000/fc02929.htm a war which almost happened.]] The irony is that Kornada intended to ''cause'' harm from the start, while Bowman intended to ''prevent'' harm.

** What Mr. Kornanda ends up getting is a thousand days (eight hour shifts) working at Cricket-Burger, but he has to get an "above average" rating on his shift for the day to count...

* AgitatedItemStomping: Implied by the crunches coming from behind a closed bathroom door in [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2500/fc02439.htm this panel]]. [[UpliftedAnimal Florence]] uses either this trope or her teeth to destroy a [[RestrainingBolt remote control that makes her faint]] before [[NoKillLikeOverkill flushing it down the toilet]]. %%More context for this moment is riddled with spoilers, think twice about whether it's necessary to give more context.

** Sam briefly hides among effigies of himself - see the NobodyHereButUsStatues entry.



* NobodyHereButUsStatues: Sam escapes pursuit by pretending to be part of a display in a hunting supplies shop--which works because, presumably due to public demand--their practice targets are effigies of Sam.

** In [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff400/fv00348.htm this strip]], Florence [[GenreSavvy knows better]] than to ask what else could go wrong, after being abandoned in the ocean with a hurricane in the vicinity, and winding up cutting herself after crawling onto the shore.
** [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1700/fc01654.htm Varroa Jacobsoni]] asks the ultimate fate tempting question, "What could possibly go wrong". Sam, however, is GenreSavvy enough to know not to ask that question.

'''Winston''' (thinking -- and {{facepalm}}ing): Why, the same thing I did. They run off and leave the door open so the monster can enter the house.
