Added DiffLines:

* Operation J.E.W.L explains that what happened in Guatemala was that Abigal (Numbuh 5) left Heinrich to be caught with a bag of sacred caramels and he was grounded for a month, but Operation C.A.R.A.M.E.L reveals that Heinrich was cursed by a caramel-making ritual that stole his/her femininity. How did the Guatemala Incident go from a ritual to theft?

** It was likely just poor timing. Nobody could predict when something like that would happen.

** Actually, this is presumably the ''reason'' teens are decomissioned, its an exagerated version of the TeensAreMonsters tropes. If the teens were allowed to keep their knowledge once hormones and personality changes start wrecking them, the KND wouldnt be around for long.

*** For example, Cree (Numbuh Five's older sister) and Chad are both former KND members who were never decommissioned. They are also both very active threats to the KND.

*** This episode was a test of Nigel's character. the Galactic KND (or some other higher order knd group) put him in the scenario to see how he'd do. Imagine: you wake up an adult, all your friends are adults, nobody remembers anything but Abby, and everyone is pushing you to sign a bill that voids all rights for kids. If the episode screwed with your head realize what Nigel felt was much worse, but he didn't crack under the pressure and didn't sign the bill. They wanted to see: would he sell out his beliefs because his friends did? could he be convinced that what he remembered wasn't real and that this new messed up reality was the way things should be? would he betray every kid on earth if the stakes were high enough? The part where he says "He gets it" and stands up to the barrage and survives is because he realizes it's a simulation, and the fact he almost figured it out the GKND decided not to put him through anymore of those simulations. This clearly wasn't the first time they tested him, but there's no indication of which (if any)other episodes were tests.

* if the kid's next door has thousands of members and is at lest over a hundred years old (as shown "Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-F.I.V.E.") why weren't all the low normal numbers like 1 though 5 or even 86 taken a long time ago? you'd think by now every body would have to take code names like Numbuh 10985678

* How exactly does a former KND operative become an ally of the adults? They don't even have any memories of being apart of the KND.

** "Yeah -- we told him everything he wanted to hear." ''Any'' parts of that entire story could have been made up to mislead Father. Maybe the KND finally found a way to cure Sector Z, but to protect them from Father, Numbers 2-5 were instructed to tell him they died in that chase.

*** Actually, there is a bit of FridgeBrilliance to this. Remember, Benedict was traumatized enough to have implied hallucinations of Grandfather force-feeding him broccoli when Numbuh 362 threatened him at broccoli-point. It is a common pattern for abused children to grow up, only become AbusiveParents themselves, and Monty as Numbuh 0 was GenreSavvy enough to know that. If he remembered everything while as Numbuh 0, there was no guarantee he wouldn't become just like Grandfather at some point in adulthood, thus he decommissioned himself to ensure he would have no underlying motivation to abuse Nigel.

** Perhaps the kids' attitudes only seem exaggerated because they live in a world where kids have a lot more power than they do in our world.

* Number T/The Tommy is no longer a KND member, but he still assists them. Isn't that a good thing since KND members get their memories erased when they reach a certain age? Since he operates outside KND, he is safe from mind wiping?
