  • In Damien's ending, he adopts Duchess Cordelia.
  • He loves wrestling, and he even has a room dedicated to entirely to wrestling memorabilia.
  • Hugo's wrestling persona would be J.D. Slamminger; his costume would be a tweed coat, and his finishing move would be "A Catcher in the Eye," in which he pokes his opponent's eyes out and calls them a phony. This is a reference to the novel The Catcher in the Rye written by J.D. Salinger, which is fitting due to Hugo being an English teacher.
  • Hugo has an ex-husband whom Ernest spends weekends with and is referred to by Hugo as "the cool weekend dad".
  • Hugo has multiple brothers, as stated when he explains how he got into wrestling in the first place.
  • In the Dadrector’s cut, if the player goes on two dates with Hugo and Damien, plus the art walk sidequest, Hugo and Damien can end up a couple at Amanda’s graduation party.
