* Keep in mind that based on some of the comments they made, Harry and Marv intended to kill Kevin from the moment they saw him in front of the toy store - and they probably had something more grisly in mind than just shooting him. Marv, for example, implies that they could drown him, and Harry mentions something about a subway tunnel.

* When Harry and Marv manage to catch Kevin, they gleefully claim that everything Kevin did to them, they're going to do to him. All those booby traps? Not so funny when you picture those things being done to an eight-year-old boy. Harry even said he was going to [[{{Fingore}} bite off all of Kevin's fingers one at a time]], and had every intention of going through with it. He actually ''had one in his mouth'' [[spoiler: before a shovel-wielding Marley came in to rescue Kevin.]]
** According to Culkin, [[EnforcedMethodActing he still has a scar on his finger]]. In fact, he and Joe Pesci even shared some real-life animosity, partly because of this incident.

* When Kevin tells his family that he just "hung around" while they were gone, he's referring to when Harry and Marv hung him up on the door, prior to Marley saving him.

** Harry doesn't think they're going to get caught. If they do, there is probably going to be more than enough evidence against them even without the flooding (though obviously that doesn't help- and copycats are EXTREMELY unlikely, plus the flooding would not be the only proof and it WOULD stand in court) to put them away for a long time. His main concern is that even without the risk of capture, it's still unhealthy...and hey, maybe this is even a case of EvenEvilHasStandards, since while he has no problems robbing houses for profit (and he wasn't yet ready to kill a kid- they probably originally planned to just tie Kevin up and otherwise leave him be if he hadn't tortured them first), flooding and wrecking their homes for no reason other than "It's our calling card" might be a step too far even for him.



* Why doesn't Kevin call for help from somewhere with a working phone, like the grocery store? I would say this is because he truly believes he has magically made his family disappear, which the police couldn't fix. Notice he asks the guy who he believes works for Santa for his family to return.

* If Alex had to press the record button to get footage, wouldn't that have given away his position to the spies when they reviewed the tape?

to:

* Despite how dumb they are, Harry and Marv were still smart enough to escape from prison. If they escaped again after the second movie, Kevin would be in a huge amount of danger, since they know where he lives, know how to acquire a gun, and really, REALLY want him dead.

* Buzz is able to convince Kevin that Old Man Marley killed his entire family because Marley hasn't been visited by his family since before the McAllisters moved to the neighborhood.

*** It's actually an affluent neighborhood of brick townhouses, with expensive cars on the street and lots of houses with holiday lights. Which makes nobody noticing all that's going on even stranger.
