Bystander effect is a social psychological phenomenon that refers to cases where individuals do not offer any means of help in an emergency situation to the victim when the other people are present.

Another strike against "safety in numbers"
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

One of my favorite scenes in the film is when construction workers committing suicide and when few of them are standing under the building making jokes and then one of them shows great emotional reaction to the incident. Of course, he is puzzled and terrified seeing his fellow co-workers are committing suicide, but since we are on this topic, my focus is now on the rest of the works standing behind the guy who starts crying and being emotional. They are not showing any emotion.

Yeah, cuz he's showing enough emotion for all of them, so they figure he can take responsibility.

I love these clues in Night's films. :)
