* Why does the {{Hyperdrive}} of Stitch's police cruiser require the user to punch through glass to pull it like a fire alarm? It would seem like you would want the ability to jump into hyperspace at a moment's notice more readily available if you were pursuing fleeing suspects.

* I can understand Nani being upset at Lilo's kidnapping, but why would Jumba and Pleakly give her the impression that there's no hope and that she's never going to see her again? Surely, the Grand Councilwoman wouldn't do anything to seriously hurt Lilo when she found out that Gantu nabbed her as well - couldn't she just as easily be sent back to Earth?

** When Gantu put Lilo in with Stitch, he made a remark about how "I even got you a little snack." Clearly he was under the impression that Stitch was going to kill Lilo at some point in the journey. Jumba and Pleakly were only beginning to consider that Stitch might not be what both of them, Gantu, the Councilwoman, and basically everybody else thought he was.

*** The problem was never so much that Stitch can't ''swim'' (he really can't, but that's beside the point), it's that if he fell into deep water (like the Ocean then he'd drown long before he's be able to get to shore. One occasion where he was submerged in the animated series was still in relative shallow water and he was able to walked/climbed his way out from the bottom of the pool.

* I don't get the whole, "convinced an alien race that mosquitoes were an endangered species" thing. Do the aliens have a strange fondness for mosquitos, and so didn't want to destroy Earth? Then why did they make the big deal about them being endangered, when they would all get destroyed with Earth, endangered or not?
** Perhaps [[WildMassGuessing mosquitos are actually an alien race, and destroying them would be an act of genocide?]]

** It's a joke. They're implying Elvis is so ubiquitous even aliens know his songs.

** Stitch may be resistant to blunt force and heat, but needles are different from both of these. For one thing, needles have much less surface area, so the pressure that a needle exerts is higher because the force behind it is more concentrated. Also, if Stitch couldn't be stabbed by needles, Jumbaa would have a harder time performing necessary medical procedures on Stitch, like giving him medicine or getting a sample of blood to study.

* Stitch is pretty durable. Being trapped inside a burning spaceship as it slams into the ground at hundreds of miles per hour in a giant explosion, being shot with a plasma blaster, standing next to a plasma blaster when it explodes with enough force to blow a house to bits, being blasted with rocket exhaust, and being launched thousands of feet into the air by an oil tanker exploding directly underneath him don't injure him whatsoever, and all falling thousands of feet or being repeatedly run over by semi trucks does is knock him out briefly. But the security staff on the prison transport ship manage to take a blood sample from him with... a needle on a stick (and the stick is only to keep him from biting the poor alien taking the sample). Just what is that needle made of?
