*** Jack was surprised when Tooth told him all of the Guardians had past lives and families. For 300 years, he'd just wanted to know what his purpose was - he didn't even know there was anything else he could've been looking for.

*** Maybe to get back at North for forcing him to go on the sled earlier on?

*** Well, you'd think that they'd at least have a better understanding of the situation, as they already have believers and used to be different people. They could have pointed him in the direction of the Tooth Fairy in regards to his memories, and help him out with the rest.

** Why would he think they'd have answers for that in the first place? He's surprised when the Toothfairy tells him the teeth contain memories, so he has no reason to believe before them they'd be of any help.

* I know Jack and the Guardians had a mutual dislike in the beginning of the movie, but how come Jack didn't approach any of these guys about his memories and purpose when he learned of their existence?

** I knew what the Sandman was in elementary school. He even made appearances in some of my favorite shows (''Series/AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' and ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies''). Kids might not look forward to his visits like the Tooth fairy and Santa Claus, but chances are good they'll know who he is and what he does. As long as they don't scoff and think, "That's ridiculous -- there's no such thing as the Sandman," they believe.

** Of course, this all still does beg the question why, if Jack is the one who made the snow day, why he didn't make more of it. Realistically, who goes outside to play in the snow when there's hardly any snow on the ground?

** Let's assume that he can't bring people back from the dead whenever he pleases (like, 300 years later), so he made Jack a spirit at the time he died because it was either then or never. It's also safe to assume he knew ''exactly'' what would happen in the future and when (most {{Big Good}}s with this much cosmic influence are omniscient) and the best way to move the pieces to win the game. Why couldn't he have just told Jack who he was, how he died, exactly how he would be needed in 300 years, what his job would be, make him a Guardian immediately, and give him all the information and power he would need for an easy victory? Because, would Jack have become the type of person who ''could'' defeat this enemy under those circumstances? He would have spent years pining for the family he knew he had but couldn't speak to, he might not have embraced his power so eagerly, he probably wouldn't have spent so much time bonding (albeit, one-sided) and playing with kids if he had such a huge responsibility on his shoulders and a dangerous battle to look forward to, and he wouldn't have proven himself like we see him do both in battle and through the choices he makes. A person doesn't become a hero -- the type who's strong and smart enough to defeat evil -- by having everything handed to them; you have to learn things and prove yourself on your own. That's what TheHerosJourney is for. The MiM gave Jack his SupernaturalAid, but Jack had to undergo the journey himself, just like how a teacher gives students all the knowledge they need but can't take the test for them. (Maybe Jack thought he needed more information handed to him instead of wanting to find it himself, but given how he ended victorious, he really had exactly what he needed.)
