Added DiffLines:

* RetroactiveRecognition: A pre-''Series/{{Community}}'' Creator/GillianJacobs is the Lewis' babysitter.


* UnfortunateImplications: The climactic choice makes the ''monstrous'' view of the writer clear, that one person having a disability is "obviously" far worse than [[spoiler: one of that person's parents ''murdering'' the other and being imprisoned for it]]. People with that particular disability are being told, effectively, that it would be better for their parents to[[spoiler: kill one of the other and the other to be imprisoned]] than that they have that disability. Which people really do, in real life.

Added DiffLines:

* MemeticMutation: Many, many, ''many'' spoofs have been done on the concept of the box. Usually involving someone who either doesn't care if someone they know dies or sees it as a plus. Almost always said person will hit the button before the presenter has even finished speaking.


* UnfortunateImplications In [[spoiler: all three]] Box choices we see, it is the wife who [[spoiler: pushes the button]], maybe [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory represents Eve eating the apple]] but still comes across as women make silly, sudden decisions without thinking.

Added DiffLines:

* InferredHolocaust: [[spoiler: The aliens will apparently render the human race extinct, save for those chosen to be "saved", who are in the meantime used as slaves... unless our "altruism coefficient" is high enough. And guess what? It goes down every time the button gets pushed.]]
