******* It's on the 7 1/2 floor because he wanted it to be harder to stumble across; noone just hangs out where they'd get leg cramps, so there's that fewer people there. You even need to know a special trick to access the floor on the elevator.

** If Lester's age was 105 in the film, then he wouldn't have been very old at the time of Malkovich's childhood, so if Lester's real body was healthy he wouldn't need to have a host body of Malkovich's parent to prolong his life. Would it then be possible that Lester is not only old now, but was ill in his earlier life, and began inhabiting other people's bodies to stay alive?

*** FridgeHorror: A peek into Malkovich's subconsciousness shows that he was mistreated as a child. If Lester was one of his parents, maybe he was starting to break his will early, to make him a more malleable person to take over later in life?

****** [[spoiler: It should be pointed out that when Charlie Sheen is shown the room with the little girl, he is clearly weirded out by the collection of photos, and Lottie probably knows enough at this point that she could take steps to break the chain with her "daughter."]]


Added DiffLines:

****** Craig didn't have a particularly strong moral compass at the beginning of the film, and although he did bring up the ethical dilemma of selling time in Malkovich body at first, his need to be needed sorta won out.

****** There's playing with our sense of right and wrong, and then there's running in circles around our sense of right and wrong, laughing maniacally and juggling grapefruit as you do so.

** Actually, Emily wasn't born when Craig entered her head. That's why he's stuck there permanently.

** It was a case of ThrowItIn. The guy in the car wasn't supposed to say or do anything, but he was apparently drunk off his ass and decided to throw the beer can at Malkovich's head while yelling at him. Spike Jonze [ItAmusedMe thought it was funny]] and used it. See item #5 [[http://www.cracked.com/article_20096_6-iconic-movie-scenes-that-happened-by-accident.html here.]]
