** He used playground knowledge. When I was a kid and wanted to climb up a metal or plastic slide at school during recess I took off my shoes and socks, making it a bit easier for my feet to stick to surfaces. Shoes and socks just slip off most surfaces. Laputa was made of stone, and that method would probably work on stone, too. Not sure if that's what Pazu was thinking, though he at least knew his socks and shoes would just get in the way.

**** In Spanish, "volar" means "to fly", in French it's "voler", in Latin it's "volare", so perhaps that explains possible inspirations for naming the stone. The "ite" part comes from the ending of the names of some minerals, rocks and gems, like andesite or quartzite.

** It's debatable. Paquin's accent in real life tends to fluctuate due to being born in Canada and mostly raised in New Zealand. The actress has mentioned she sometimes slips into her NZ accent when speaking to friends from that country.

** It's the self destruct command for the system, and can only destroy Laputa. Self destruct codes tend to be short.

* Did anyone create the robots on Laputa? What are they made of? Is it the central crystal that keeps them alive and running? How are they capable of understanding things like being kind towards animals?

*** The Japanese name of the MacGuffin mineral is ''hikouseki'', which quite literally translates to "Levitation stone". Of course, from what this troper can gather, both the Japanese term and the translation of "Volucite" were words that were made up for this movie anyway, and really, if one isn't going to go with just the literal translation, "Aetherium" is probably a more logical translation... Then again this troper has no idea what the "Volu" in "Volucite" is even supposed to mean.
