** About a week, if RL trash strikes are anything to go by. Once there is a start to a pile, people won't hesitate to add to it as much as when the floor is clean. At that point, the piles grow quickly.

** New York city is the capital of the Federated Territories, i.e. Earth's capital city. It is no wonder that New York appears to be overpopulated.

** Especially bad as Cornelius is supposedly in a sect that "reveres life", yet can't take 10 seconds out of his busy day to make sure this passed out girl isn't in danger.

** Given how many people go through the airport in a single day, it probably wouldn't take all that long.

* The scene where Korben meets Cornelius at his house with an unconscious Leeloo can be seen as a horrifying take on contemporary New York society: A man shows up at a priest's door dirty and covered in burns and wounds. He is holding a knocked-out barely-dressed (even by their standards!) girl, who is also dirty and covered in cuts and bruises. Cornelius had no idea who these people were, or even if the girl in question ''knew'' the person holding her. All we get is this exchange:
-->'''Korben''': "We need a priest!"
-->'''Cornelius''': (rolls eyes) "Congratulations, my son. Weddings are two floor down."

**** Realize also that dozens of moons in our solar system alone, as well as an asteroid belt. Any of these could be more defeated evils.



*** The novelization specifically says there is now a second moon.

* Exactly how long has the trash strike been going on? That pile of trash takes up half the concourse, and is like a wall. People walk by and no one comments on the smell (or is wearing some kind of mask to filter out the smell!)

** Because it's not a "battle" and the other functions wouldn't have done much good. The rockets stood as much chance of blowing him up at that range, the darts, net, freeze ray and flame throwers would've just impacted the ceiling. Machine gunning the ceiling really is the most effective way to have attacked her in that situation.

* What happened to all the exotic functions of the ZF-1? When Zorg battles Leeloo, he just uses it like a plain, twentieth-cnetury machine gun.

* It makes for a lovely dramatic moment and all, but one gets the feeling Leeloo was a little...sporadic with her reading if she got all the way to "W" before hitting a topic that would drive home how [[HumansAreBastards rotten]] humans can be.
