  • This is the only scoop requiring a book to complete.
  • Both men make short statements repeatedly in English, such as "what's happening here", similar to other survivors, despite not speaking English. However, this is just a limit in game mechanics.
  • Like many scoops, this scoop has additional food (apples) in the store, which is only available during the scoop.
