Did You Know?
Some of the exchanges of dialogue between Jack and Rose are based on those between Hideo Kojima
and his wife. For example, before they got married, she would always ask him what day it was. Once, when they had a date, he completely forgot about it. This is what Rose's continuous asking Jack "what day tomorrow is" is taken from. See more
On top of Federal Hall, Solidus tells Raiden that George Washington became the first US president "200 years ago today". Washington was inaugurated on April 30, 1789, but this scene takes place on the same day in 2009 - 220 years later, not 200. This is because Solidus is intentionally rounding the number down, presumably to make his "speech" flow better. See more
