* {{Foreshadowing}}: In an early scene, Lyle worries aloud that the guides think he's the biggest jerk they've ever seen in their lives and are thinking of something evil to do to him -- and the guides say to each other (in Swahili) that Lyle's the biggest jerk they've ever seen in their lives and plan to do something evil to him. It seems like a simple comedy gag -- which foreshadows TheReveal that they can speak English just fine.
