** Also might be because the aliens that MIB is supposed to watch don't necessarily stick to Earth time. Maybe a 36-hour day is better to work with the aliens they're watching over.



** A lot of what makes a good MIB agent seems to be the ability to adjust to weird situations. Neuralizing J lets him demonstrate to Zed just how well he handles weird. K almost certainly already planned to recruit J, but it's all part of a test.

** There's the other angle to being a workaholic - you wind up keeping the other people in the organization from doing as much work as they might need to. Sure, J's an excellent agent, but he might be preventing other agents from getting the experience they need to be excellent as well. Especially with how he's implied to be a little trigger-happy with his neuralizer.



** Noisy Cricket. The gun doesn't have to be big to be powerful, and Serleena would be foolish to assume that just because she didn't see a big honking space gun, the MIB didn't have weapons on them.

Especially since K had already been proven to be carrying a grenade on him when he was fighting that heavily-armed trash can.

** If you think about it, it's quite fitting. No fanart for a movie about an organization that leaves no trace of its presence whatsoever.

** There's also the teams that show up after the agents flash them. The first use of the Neuralizer seems pretty short term (preventing someone from pulling out a gun or causing undue panic) so that it's easier for the follow-up crew to do its damage control

** The DVD contains 3 scenes that were cut which dramatically shifted that part of the plot, the studio execs wanted a [[ViewersAreMorons '''streamlined''']] plot and the director found he just needed to redub two scenes and while third mostly needed a different CGI shot on the computer screen to remove the whole peace conference plot into a simpler theft and assassination. They pretty much missed that error as the change was very last minute for a big budget blockbuster, apparently some of the main actors themselves had no idea that lot had been changed and were surprised at the final version.

*** [[HandWave MIB has technology for that.]] Same reason the little aliens in the locker can make noise without being heard, although Grand Central Station would ostensibly be much louder.

*** Then why does she take the mugger's clothes in the first place? And before getting vaporized she seems to be wearing his clothes. You can even see her wearing the same rings he had on when he tried to mug her; rings she didn't have on until after she ate him and barfed him out.

*** Seems like a nitpick, but K did have a {{BFG}} in there with him. He didn't when facing Serleena.

** It might be something like the T-1000 where she can't shapeshift into something she hasn't at least seen or touched. Or she put on the clothes, then absorbed them.

** She's forming the clothes herself. Jay vaporizes her at one point and she regenerates, clothes and all.

** There's actually an explanation in the first movie for why "Bug" is enough of an explanation and clearance to pursue: They're never "neutral", they literally live to make war and exterminate other species.
