Garcin and Estelle
I found it rather interesting that each character wore the colors of his/her couch (Garcin, blue; Inez, green; Estelle, pink) except Garcin wore both blue and pink. Since we already read the play before watching it, we knew that a sexual interaction between Estelle and Garcin was going to happen. Had we not read it though, I would have assumed that Garcin wearing pink and blue foreshadowed/symbolized some sort of interaction between the two characters. Perhaps Garcin wearing both colors was not intentionally done and a total accident, but if you analyze it, it really makes sense.
