No one should feel like they need to keep quiet or like they might be made fun of if they point out something suspicious and it does not end up being a clue. Everyone should feel free to talk as much as they want to talk and to mention anything that they think might be giving them a hint at what they should do next. The more that people talk about what they see, the more likely they are to find clues and get out of the room.
