** What I'm asking is, what was going to happen to Lilo after Gantu returned to base? The councilwoman realizes Stitch escaped from him, sees that Lilo was brought along...and what would she do about her? Gassing a planet to kill a condemned LivingWeapon is one thing, but killing a single child just because she got roped in by accident? I can't see even the councilwoman being so cruel.

*** Or, since Jumba had to get the genetic material for his experiments pre-movie, he spent a lot of time visiting different planets and Earth was one of them?

** Wasn't Jumba there throughout most of the montage of Lilo trying to teach Stitch to be a "model citizen", during which she played a whoole bunch of Elvis's songs? Maybe he heard it then.

** Possibly they knew it wasn't technically ''dead'' at that moment, but figured he was was almost dead and likely to reach that state at any moment. He was run over by multiple trucks, after all. Someone just felt that it would be kinder to let him get euthanized inside the shelter and not to be exposed to the elements during his final moments. The person probably thought it was better to put it in one of the cages and, if it somehow miraculously clung onto life, it would be somewhere safe. They didn't expect the dying or dead "dog" to wander into the front room with the kid as if nothing happened.

** It's possible that sometime offscreen during his stakeout, Jumba happened upon the song and took a shine to it.

* In the first film, the record gets knocked and starts playing Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog." Jumba then says, "I love this song." Jumba is an alien. On Earth, that would mean that you know the song and you love it, but that wouldn't make sense in this case. By alien slang does it mean that Jumba has experienced similar music in his own society in the past or something else?

** See an above discussion for more.



** I doubt that Jumba created all 626 experiments using the same batch of DNA, and if the "Ugly Duckling" scene from the first film is any indication, while he may know that Jumba ''created'' him, neither of the two seem to consider the other as his "father" or "son", nessecarily. It's something like with the demigods in the ''Percy Jackson'' series - they're all related to each other technically, but it's in some convoluted way - and the gods don't have DNA, anyway - so when they do refer to this relation, they just call each other cousins while still having relationships.

* At the part in the movie where Lilo's house gets on fire, then Nani sees the fire truck heading toward their house and she says: "Don't turn left." Is her house the only one on the left of the grocery store?

** And even if that wasn't the case, you have to take AdultFear into account. Most parents/guardians who are just easing into the concept of leaving their children home alone will flip out over the smallest thing indicating something may have gone wrong. That, and/or Nani's just GenreSavvy enough to know that anything that can go wrong WILL go wrong.
*** I can attest to this - even if you aren't in a rural place where there's the possibility that the fire truck is headed somewhere else, you can't help but fear something may have happened.
*** The fire truck turns on to a dirt road. No evidence of nearby houses in shots of the outside. Probably a long driveway?
** Even if it turns out that the fire truck could have been going to a different house and Nani's isn't the only one that could have caught fire, would you still assume that "oh it must be going somewhere else" since the fire could have ''spread''?
** I read this simply as Nani can see the firetruck from where she is, and it's coming to a fork in the road. If it goes right, she doesn't have to worry that it's her house. If it turns left, there is still a chance it's her house /and/ she won't be able to follow it because (I think, not sure) she's late for work.

wrong - is in effect.

** Maybe not rogues like Jumbaa, but it appears that the Galactic Council follows any rules to the letter. The head wanted to take Stitch away for no other reason than the Council decided it, and they wouldn't even break the most petty of laws like stealing a dog some kid bought from the pound for two bucks.

***Well, these days, such creatures would be all over social media.



** The creators address this in a deleted scene; she takes pictures of them because the tourists treat her like she's some sort of attraction that's there for their amusement. But taking the photos she turns it around of them and makes these intruders ''her'' source of amusement. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7L2ZY9UFj60

** He's clearly regretful over what he has to say...In short, it's not really because Nani's gone too far without success - it's that he was watching her at every interview she went to, each one ended fruitlessly, and now, even when she and her sister have almost managed to bond with each other as a family, the moment ends abruptly with Lilo almost drowning. He wants to put a stop to it now before the two sister have to go through even more disappointment before facing the inevitable end that he thinks it's all leading to.
