--->'''Helix''': If I were a scientist out to prove GlobalWarming was man made, I could throw this one fact out as data scatter.\\
Sam: Now, now. Let's not make this decision as if our funding depended on it.

* FanDiscontinuity: The sexist explanation for robot gender (that it's based on how much they talk) is almost universally ignored by the readership.
* GeniusBonus: When Winston is talking about "dots," little mini-ecosystems with dead land between them, some of which die, and others of which will eventually cover the whole planet, common patterns from ''Conway's Game of Life'' are shown in the background. See [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway%27s_Game_of_Life here]] for details.

* {{Anvilicious}}: (Stupid) corporations are bad, m'kay? As are [[EvilLawyerJoke lawyers]] and politicians, but, [[AcceptableTargets well, y'know...]] And middle managers are dumb. This can all be rolled into one all-encompassing {{Aesop}}: {{Obstructive Bureaucrat}}s are (far) more dangerous than an AlienInvasion. Or in [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1800/fc01704.htm the words of Sam Starfall himself]],

may be a kleptomaniac by nature, and considered a foe by almost everyone on Jean, but his study of human behavior allows him to often manipulate things to his benefit, even to the point of [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1800/fc01780.htm this strip.tricking a bunch of AIs to all target the mayor with pies.]]



*** Worse, someone [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1700/fc01648.htm brings up]] how easily Florence's control functions can be abused and is ''[[FalseReassurance laughed off]]''. Especially since a significant percentage of the planet's population are not the direct descendants of their parents, but [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff700/fv00648.htm "genetic colonists"]] who EU could have easily given covert genetic modifications.

* FridgeBrilliance: [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff400/fv00306.htm Here]] Florence is talking with her mouth shut, and she reveals later that she learned to talk using ventriloquism, as it helps a species without lips pronounce various sounds better..
** The ThemeNaming of the robots Edge and Blunt!
* FridgeHorror: Nobody knows how long Sam's species lives, because nobody's ever lived long enough to die a natural death. Sam is already considered old by his species' standards, so he could die at any moment.
