** "Weren't we just in a boat? What happened to the boat?"

* I've always thought it would have been funnier, and appropriate to the scene, if Robert had been aware of the sudden transitions from one location to another and expressed bewilderment at them.

* Considering her studio is in Nancy's old work space, maybe they visited Andalasia and Nancy signed over the business to Giselle, Nancy's now a princess/queen married to the heir apparent. What would she need a business back in new york for? We aren't shown how long after the adventure the prologue takes place. (Though it's certainly long enough for two self-help books to be written.)

* Rounding up my headcanon:
** Robert being a lawyer, either by himself or with help from his colleagues, sorted out Giselle's ID in the realm of reality. Being the wife of Robert will help this. She ended up being a citizen of United States and pay the same taxes Nancy did.
** Nancy, being the new queen of the animated realm, is obviously no longer able to (if not legally barred from) being part of any business in the real life realm. She will have to at least resign from her position, leaving behind at least a vacancy open for a new hire, if not a recommendation for Giselle to replace her.
** Given Giselle's obvious and supernatural talents in making clothes and her good looks, it is almost trivial for her to work her way into the fashion industry even without anyone else's help. When Nancy resigned Giselle could have applied for the job and won it all on herself (although being an acquaintance of Nancy can help here) and there is a chance Nancy recommended her firm to take Giselle as her replacement.




to:

* Nancy already withdrew from their relationship when she saw Giselle showed up in Robert's apartment, although the invitation to the dance did re-spark some hope. Despite their long-running relationship it is already obvious to Nancy that the their relationship is treading on thin ice even before Giselle showed up. Giselle's appearance just added the last straw and sunk that ship in Nancy's heart.
** It is obvious that when Edward failed to wake up Giselle, Robert had reservations on kissing her until Nancy gave him her blessings. At that moment it is crystal clear to both Nancy and Robert that her giving permission to him to proceed with this kiss means the dissolution of their engagement and hence relationship. By this time and occasion they both know that this breakup will be amicable, as Robert already found his better fit than Nancy. An amicable breakup usually rules out murder suspicions.




to:

* All those animals helping her means she is literally multitasking without context switching. Since all tasks she is doing have no particular order efficiency of processing such embarrassingly parallel tasks scale linearly when processing power increases.

to:

* If Morgan was one when Robert and Nancy began dating, it could have been nearly two years since Robert split with his wife. Even if she left after Morgan's birth, a year doesn't seem that short a time to get over a divorce and start dating, especially if you're not in the "I love her and wish she'd come back" mindset (which Robert clearly isn't).
** Also, Robert and Nancy's relationship isn't exactly painted as ideal. So maybe Robert hadn't gotten over it when he started to date again, and he and Nancy have been trapped in a mediocre relationship ever since because they don't feel they can break up. Heck, maybe he thought his daughter needed a mother figure, so he deliberately set out to settle down with the first woman he found regardless of their compatibility or his own feelings. There are so many reasons he might have started a serious relationship within a year.

** Or you could {{take a third option}} and say that Robert's previous wife was {{driven to suicide}} by an [[AwfulWeddedLife unhappy]] [[CynicismCatalyst marriage]].

to:

* Speaking of experience, a big theory is that part of Giselle knows darn well what the apple's all about. The scene is an analogy for committing suicide in response to a broken heart, so as to "forget" the pain....
** On a less dark note, this sort of gives subtext to "I knew it was you." Giselle is indicated throughout the film to be a little GenreSavvy about fairy tails, and as such knew what the apple would do, and that the traditional cure would be TrueLovesKiss. She wanted to be with her OneTrueLove, and this was the only apparent way to force her hand.

to:

* I'd think it's supposed to convey her "little girl at heart" side. You know: "Mommy! Look what I can do! I can carry a fishy in my mouth, and he's okay!" Note how she giggles after spitting the fish out. So basically...she was [[{{Troll}} trolling]] Sam.

** He was planning to propose to Nancy- I don't think he'd do that without an ironclad divorce in his hand from his ex. And it is very clearly implied that it was a separation/divorce and not death, as it's mentioned in the context of explaining his cynicism about true love.

** The W, N, Q, and R lines stop at Canal Street, not too far south of Bowery Street. However, for Giselle to exit at Bowery station proper, she would have to change to the J train and go one stop norh. Also, at most stations, there is an emergency gate that is often right next to the regular turnstiles, or an extra large gate at wheelchair-accessible stations.
* ''Spectacularly'' bad directions and an MTA on the lookout for suspicious people ''not'' wearing princess dresses.
