  • In Episode 2, After finding out the St. Johns are using Mark for dinner, one of the things that Lee can shout at the dinner table is "IT'S PEOPLE!" But this choice causes the group to dismiss you as behaving weird, and everyone, including Clementine, starts eating, so the game even gives you a backhanded slap for trying to be meta.
  • In Episode 3, a container of Banang can be seen in the cup holder.
    • The Banang container returns in 400 Days. It's on the pantry shelf in the diner during Shel's story.
    • And in Episode one of Season Two, it shows up again, this time it can be seen next to the sink during the kitchen scene.
    • Another bottle of Banang can be seen by the sink in the kitchen during the scene where Carlos treats Clementine's wound.
    • And it returns in Season 3, with a bottle appearing when Javier and Clementine enter Conrad's bar in Prescott.
    • It makes another appearance in the first episode of Season 4 when Clementine and AJ return to the train station to scavenge food.
  • In Episode 3, Duck will try to join in your investigation of the missing medicines, calling himself Dick Grayson and you "the greatest detective."
  • When Lee discovers the blow torch has a gas leak, Omid tells him to turn it off because he doesn't want to lose an eyebrow.
