* AnimalMetaphor: The unnamed groom makes one such argument to point out how low the other members of the cooperative have gone (quite appropriate, as almost all of them are members of a zoological institute):
--> '''The groom''': Comrades, I have been studying how animals behave when in danger. And animals, my dear, do not kill their own kind!... Tigers don't eat other tigers, bears don't devour other bears, and bunnies don't kill other bunnies. And if a whale is wounded and cannot surface for air, the other whales would swim under it and lift it to the surface. But, comrades, we are drowning each other!

* TheSpeechless: Khvostov, who has temporarily lost the power of speech after diving into cold water to help a dolphin. Being The Speechless doesn't mean he'll go quietly, though. He disrupts the meeting by jumping up onto the table and lying down directly on top of the board's documents. Later he goes marching through the chaotic crowd with a sign that says "I'll show you!"

The co-op board picks four unlucky people to lose their parking spots. They are, unsurprisingly, four of the least popular and least well-connected. Guskov the crane researcher isn't even there, being off in Siberia doing his research; he's represented by his wife. Yabukov is retired from the institute. Khvostov (Andrey Myagkov) can't even talk, having lost his voice after diving into cold water to save a seal. And Fetisov just generally seems to be a loser. The vote is taken and the meeting seems to be over. However, the four unlucky folks refuse to give up that easily, loudly protesting, accusing the board of corruption. They are supported by Lidia Malayeva, a junior researcher studying for her PhD, who pleads for her fellow members to behave better. Things really start to go sideways when Malayeva sneaks off with the keys and locks everyone in.

** At some point Anikeeva explains that Kushakova, being very influential, helps the co-op in general, for the price of one garage box. According to the WordOfGod, the question of whether or not Anikeeva is guilty of taking bribes was intentionally left ambiguous.

* {{Nepotism}}: Not everybody who has a space in the garage is a member of the zoological institute. One of the spaces went to young Miloserdov, son of the older and rich Miloserdov who is an influential patron of the institute. Young Miloserdov, who is a pretty nice fellow, is embarrassed about the whole thing.
