    When hearing that the creature came out of the river, first thing you want to do is cross the bridge.

        Apparently they won't use the Emergency Alert System for terrorist attacks or for giant monster attacks, but they'll keep playing Spongebob Squarepants!

          After a monster get's bombed badly, the first thing it'll attack once it emerges from the smokey rubble is a random helicopter flying in the air.

            Somehow a giant monster running around New York decapitating the Statue of Liberty is not unrealistic in the slightest, but the fact that the damn camera battery lasted so freaking long really gets to people.

              That's so true. People bitch over things so small that they don't even notice the big things.

            If you think there is an earthquake, or a terrorist attack, go to the roof.

              If there's a monster attack and the military is in full force, go ahead and run around; no stray bullets or missiles will hit you.

                Don't go in the New York subway after 3:00 because there are probably flaming hobos and giant spider things that make you explode.

                    If a military chopper gets knocked out of the air by a massive monster, the pilot is the only one who'll die.

                        A giant monster can sneak up behind you in central park. eEven your friends who are facing it can't see it till it's about to strike.

                          Getting impaled will cause no lasting effects, including bleeding out. You'll also survive a thirty story crash in a helicopter.

                            Some government official got ahold of the camera, sat through it for two hours trying to document the Cloverfield sightings and thought, "If I had to sit through two hours of underwear models and rejects from the cast of Beverly Hills 90210 pissing and moaning, the rest of you can sit through it too, so I'm leaving it all in."

                              If everyone is on the bridge, a monster will attack it.

                                  When you are a pilot on a helicopter and you are evacuating survivors, it is a good idea to fly next to the monster, instead of flying AWAY from it.

                                    If a monster just attacked New York and you've got a new job waiting for you in Japan, you're experience will be valuable because Godzilla is waiting there for you.

                                    If you get stuck with a steel rod through your body, play dead until your friends arrive then run around and forget about your pain.

                                      Monsters don't like to be filmed and will make sure that the one filming them dies.

                                                    After New York city is attacked, it takes about 3 hours to scramble the jets, and when they do, you're lucky to see more than two at a time.

They would rather be up in the streets with the monster or in the buildings that are being destroyed. I guess they don't want to be in the way in case a few amateur filmakers want to make a stupid film down there.

In the trailer version, there's 2 hazmat guys behind the screen with her (instead of just 1), and her inflated shape is different.
