* In the 1988 film, Why would Tracy get arrested for something she didn't even do in the riot at Tilted Acres? Even then, the only thing she did was spit at the woman who shattered Link's kneecaps.

** "Blue-eyed soul" is a term used for white people who sing in traditionally "black" genres of music such as R&B--your Adeles, Rick Astleys, and such. Blue-eyed soul isn't for Seaweed, it's for Penny--she's saying she's found her inner "blackness," as it were.

* In the song "Without Love" Penny sings "Seaweed, you're my black white-knight, I've found my blue-eyed soul". What is she talking about? Black white-knight is fairly obvious, but what blue-eyed soul has she found?

** Besides, she still would have had to sneak into the pageant, because there's no way Velma would have let her in even if the police weren't looking for her.

** When Penny unlocked the window, she threw the bombshelter door key to Tracy. Either Penny's mom wasn't near the door, when Tracy snuck out, or else Tracy is ''very'' stealthy (which isn't too hard to imagine, considering that she's pretty light on her feet).

* How did Tracy get out of Penny's mom's bombshelter basement hideout thing? I know she unlocked the window or something, but we don't see Tracy coming out that way. Wouldn't she have been caught by Prudy if she snuck back out?

** Wilbur didn't ''plan'' to bail ''anyone'' out, because neither his wife nor his daughter was supposed to BE there. Edna had only gone down to bring Tracy home once they realized she had snuck out of the house to march against their orders. Tracy then needed to be smuggled past the police (not just [[spoiler:into the pageant]], but also from Penny's house to the record store the night before) because she hadn't been arrested at all yet & was still wanted for the [[GossipEscalation ever-escalating]] assault charge.

* Does anyone else, besides me, think that Amber Von Tussle, in the 2007 film is just a JerkassWoobie who only acted the way she did because she wanted to impress her mother and dancing on the show was the only way for her to shine? I mean, in the end of the movie, [[spoiler: she accepted defeat and you see her speaking coyly with a black dancer]], implying that she made a HeelFaceTurn? I think the movie would have ended better if Amber broke away from her mom and decided to dance with the others.
** That would probably have worked, except that [[spoiler:she busted her ankle falling from the rocket ship]], so she couldn't have ''danced'' with the others. ;)
