** I'm more baffled by how Drew could possibly think that investing nearly all of Chaz's fortune into a glorified water gun meant to somehow clean out ear wax would pan out.

* It seems all children their age can speak to both babies and adult. But only up to a certain age because teens are unable to. Why is this and what is the cut off age?

**Combine this with FridgeHorror: WordOfGod is that Drew's an investment banker. ''Meaning this is his entire fucking job.'' Just how many people have you bankrupted, Drew?!

** When I was a kid conflict used to give me anxiety so I would hide in order to rid myself of the situation. I always thought Chuckie was the same.

** Susie's mother is a doctor, so would probably be more willing to tell Susie the truth as opposed to dumbing things down. Also, Susie has two teenaged siblings who seemed obnoxious enough to tell Susie the reason (and her brother Edwin is pretty much a genius, even though he believes in the tooth fairy).

* Can Tommy talk? Everyone acts like Chuckie was the first to speak, other then Angelica and Susie, however in the earlier season Tommy would say words. It's most likely not translated baby talk either, because it barely sounds like his translated voice (it's more babyish and like a toddler speaking), and it was in the episodes where baby talk wasn't translated (just a bunch of cooing and such; for example the baseball episode).

[[folder: Please Specify Which Word is Bad]]



** It's pretty common in real life for parents to not specify which word they don't want the kid to say and why they don't want them to say it (often because they're reluctant to say the word in front of the kid). At 3 kids have just grasped the concept of words, but are confused about the concept of how a word can be "bad."

** It wouldn't be right for Angelica's parents not to do anything, because the child will not know that there is anything wrong with the word if you don't.

*** A lot harder than you think, when you consider Little Kid Logic. The first thing she'd say back is, "Well, ''you'' just said it!" and the inevitable questions as to "''Why'' is it such a bad word?" Some battles can never be won.

** Yeah, it's kind of like how some kids have imaginary friends. Cynthia is a parody of Barbie, and I have seen little girls talking to their Barbie dolls before. And it makes even more sense for Angelica, since she was an only child. She might've gotten bored sometimes without any siblings, so she had Cynthia

* In the episode where Angelica convinces Tommy to "go bad," one really needs to look at all the damage he caused: he busted up nearly every single window in the house some of them really badly, destroyed thousands maybe millions of dollars worth of stuff in the house, but his parents never stop and throw him in his crib for a time-out at any time in all of this?! He's a one-year old baby, not a rapid coyote or something.

**** This checklist is proof that Angelica Pickles is a sociopath:

Persistent lying to mess with the babies' heads? Check.
Lack of remorse or empathy for others by laughing at their suffering? Check.
Cruelty to animals especially Spike the Dog? Check.
Poor behavioral controls through a tendency to steal snacks and break the babies' toys? Check.
Inability to tolerate boredom and committing bad behavior as a way of relieving boredom? Check.
Disregard for safety with reckless behavior? Check and mate.

** Probably the ultrasound. It happens more often than you'd think. People in my area all have a 'if-the-doctors-were-wrong' name, which was usually only decided apon after they were born.

* Here's a question that stumps me: in the first Rugrats movie, Didi is pregnant with Dil (who's a boy), but she and almost everyone else (Charlotte Pickles is the exception) think she's having a girl. What I want to know about this is what made them determine the sex of Dil like that. Did they get a botched ultrasound? Did they use an "old country" method (look [[http://mentalfloss.com/article/49089/9-historical-methods-determining-sex-unborn-baby here]] for some examples)? Or did they determine it based on some WildMassGuessing that Lipshitz wrote in one of his books?
