** Or Lot's family in the Bible. Don'tLookBack may just be a common mythological/folkloric trope across many cultures, one of many that Miyazaki channels into his works.

* Eating food at an apparently abandoned theme park is a pretty bad idea, even without spirit world creepiness. They just start eating food that has just been sitting out for-- if not years, months, weeks, or days, then at least hours.

** In the Japanese dub, it's easy to tell what's going on if you're paying close enough attention. Chihiro is able to figure out with very little information that the dragon she observes getting attacked by paper dolls outside the bath house is actually Haku, and she expresses surprise that Yubaba can't recognize her son when he's traveling with her in the form of a mouse. Chihiro seems to have a talent for seeing into the heart of a person. This is exemplified when she looks into the pen full of pigs at the end of the movie and realizes none of them are her transformed parents.

* Haku is the very first person who's friendly to Chihiro and patient with her fear and loneliness. On finding out his real identity as [[spoiler: the Kohaku River,]] ''of course'' this makes sense. [[spoiler: Humans gravitate to bodies of fresh water for survival, so he's probably lived for ''centuries'' with them.]]

** This seems entirely possible to me. I was rewatching it the other day and I was hit with the revelation that they might be the same person. I realized it when Chihiro calls Yubaba "Granny" after returning from Zeniba's cottage in Swamp Bottom where Zeniba, not Yubaba, asked Chihiro to call her "Granny". I realize this might have been added to show that Chihiro realized there may be two sides to Yubaba and that they are one and the same. Yes, this is a bit of a stretch. I did read on Sparknotes that they might represent good and evil in the spirit world

* Haku was sent to steal Zeneba's gold seal. In most legalities a seal on a will is just as legal as a signature. Since Yubaba can only control those, whose names she's stolen, she wanted that seal to control her sister. No wonder Zeneba was mad.

* Chihiro tries the medicine not long after being given it, only for it to make her gag with it implied to be quite disgusting, as is common with medicine. However, both times it is used, saving [[spoiler:Haku from Zeniba's curse]] and [[spoiler:making No Face release his victims]], it is precisely the fact that it [[spoiler:induced vomiting]] that made it useful.
