- The fact that Trip Nickerson's self-help goal-setting seminar was nearly empty except for the main characters and other children makes more sense when it turns out the author's book was just "I'm better than you are" repeated for pages and pages. No one who's actually looked at it would have ever attended. Though how he got that published is another question...
- The costume party being a trap makes more sense when you realize just how hard Tish and Tino had to work to make their costumes since it was so long after Halloween that buying them was difficult. A real costume party wouldn't give such short notice in a time when costumes are harder to come by.
