** A bit of a MoodWhiplash shows up in the scene where Elizabeth first witnesses Booker killing people. She runs away in terror and makes it to an airship in an attempt to flee from [[HorrifyingHero Booker]], horrified at the violence- but when he finally catches up to her (after killing more cops), he finds her trying and failing to dislodge the break by putting both arms and all her weight into the lever, which isn't shifting even the tiniest bit. Booker sighs, casually walks up to it, and lazily turns the lever with one hand and no effort. Elizabeth sheepishly buggers off to the side and pauses in response, interrupting the flow of her WhatTheHellHero speech in that sequence.


** To make it even funnier: it's [[Series/MassEffect Shepard]] arguing with [[Series/SaintsRow Boss]], or alternately [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Bastila]] and [[Series/StreetFighter Chun Li]] going at it.

*** The whole sequence through Battleship Bay basically provides Elizabeth's first impression of her would-be rescuer. Depending on the player's actions in the game, this could involve Booker rooting through trashcans for spare change or food (which he eats), walking into women's washrooms to empty the contents of any purses or handbags he finds, or even stealing from a cash register in the same room as the shop's owner. Elizabeth will more than likely have a few choice comments on your total disregard for social niceties or apparent poverty.

** Also, sadly, entirely feasible to hear thrown around in our own reality.


* Most depictions of the three most idolized founding fathers are done in a Greek style, portraying them as legendary heroes. As a result, [[http://theinquisitiveloon.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/bioshock-infinite-founding-fathers.jpg Benjamin Franklin has a sculpted bodybuilder's physique, even though his face is left heavyset and with his famous spectacles.]]
** That's actually a bit of a GeniusBonus: believe it or not, [[FormerlyFit Ben Franklin was rather athletic in his younger days]]. Whether the devs [[AccidentallyAccurate knew this or not]], it's still an amusing in-joke.

** The petulant way Elizabeth says, "It'll sting me!" is chuckle-worthy, but it's Booker's ParentheticalSwearing that makes the scene: He says "''Elizabeth!''" in such an exasperated tone that he might as well have said, "Oh, Jesus Christ!''"

* At one point in the game, you can overhear a conversation between two NPCs that's a man talking to his wife about his doubts with the general state of things in Columbia, and his wife half-jokingly responding "Keep your heretical thoughts to yourself, Gerald! I don't want to become a bit character from I Married A Vox Populi, now do I?" This is chuckle-inducing in and of itself, but imagine a Columbian sitcom called I Married A Vox Populi. Just imagine it.

* Though the scene might be more satisfying than funny for some, Suchongs now animated death to a Big Daddy shows us that when he slapped the Little Sister and angered a Big Daddy, he didn't back up against the wall in fear or stare in awe, but instead [[SuicidalOverconfidence slowly pimp walked up to the growling Big Daddys face and shrug his arms to it ask it 'What?'.]]
