**[[spoiler:The
second time machine seems to have been left in the present day. Nobody brings it up again, even after Cornelius notices that the time machines are missing from the garage.]]
**An intentional variation: [[spoiler:After the plot is sorted out and Lewis convinces Wilbur to take in an emotionally drained Bowler Hat Guy in the good future, Goob decides to refuse their offer out of shame and wanders off. He leaves behind only his diary where his revenge schemes are crossed out and now replaced with a question mark, showing that now that his lifelong goals have been rendered null, he becomes lost and confused, sulks off, and that's the last we see of him (his adult self, anyway). Although, given that Lewis undoes his StartOfDarkness soon after this in the present time, it's implied that he won't be sulking for long.

-->'''Lewis''': How did you end up like this?
-->'''B.H.G.''': Well, it's a long and pitiful story, about a young boy with a dream. a dream of winning a Little League championship.
-->[Flashback to a sandlot baseball stadium where a young Mike Yagoobian is asleep in the outfield; a fly ball lands next to a sleepy Yagoobian]
-->'''B.H.G.''': A dream that was ruined in the last inning. We lost by one run because of me.
** Later on in the flashback:
-->'''B.H.G.''': It was then that I realized [[NeverMyFault it wasn't 'my' fault... it was yours!]] If you hadn't kept me up all night working on your stupid project, then I wouldn't have missed the catch! So I devised a brilliant plan to get my revenge.
-->[Bowler Hat Guy throws eggs at the Robinson Industries building]
-->'''B.H.G.''': Robinson, you stink!
-->'''B.H.G.''': Then, just as I was on the brink of destroying Robinson Industries, I met... her.
-->[Doris extends her metal claw and drags Bowler Hat Guy away]
-->'''B.H.G.''': We retreated to our villainous lair, where Doris spun a tale of deception and woe. Apparently, you invented her to be a helping hat, a slave to humankind... But Doris knew she was capable of so much more... However, you didn't see her true potential...
-->'''Cornelius''': Got it!
-->'''B.H.G.''': So you shut her down... or so you thought.
-->[Doris breaks out of her holding cell]
-->'''B.H.G.''': We both had a score to settle with you, and while my plan for revenge was brilliant, Doris's was... well, we went with Doris's, but I made a very, very important contribution. Together we made the perfect team.

-->'''Franny''': Wilbur, make sure you shut that door tight, or else the alarm won't engage.

-->[Wilbur leaves the garage door ajar]
-->'''B.H.G.''': I went to your house, snuck in the garage, and stole the time machine. All thanks to that pointy-haired little kid who forgot to lock the garage door.
** Even Carl, the robot butler, makes reference to this incident earlier in the film:
-->'''Carl''': What do you mean don't go to the family? How can we not go to the family is this type of family crisis? By leaving the garage door unlocked, you let the time machine get stolen and now the entire time stream could be altered!
