** Going with how overcrowded the earth seems to be, it's probably easier and less costly to make buildings way, WAY more vertically. Land lots probably cost a fortune and every inch counts, so they cram as many people in one floor, and fold everthing in whatever space is needed between floors. The visuals in the movie support this, as it seemed that every building was a huge skyscraper.

*** Who's to say Zorg cares about Earth? If he did believe the Evil would wipe out Earth, Zorg could take his money and simply retire to another inhabited world.

** Or, we can just take it as foreshadowing that Korben is more than just a run of the mill cabbie; he's an ex-special forces cabbie. The tech to block an ID scanner could very well be military grade.

** It didn't, he'd just seconds ago smashed the part of his cab that the cops interface with to get his ID because it was really annoying him.

** One gets the impression that Finger's not entirely on the up-and-up in all his dealings, and could very well boost cars or run a chop-shop on the side of the cab company. Korben's car may very well ''be'' stolen, even if Korben himself doesn't know it.

*** The shower telescopes into itself. Leeloo has to duck, then crouch, because the ceiling isn't moving. The bed saves space by folding up underneath some shelves. There's a faucet on the floor of the shower, implying you could stop it halfway and use it as the sink. The only real issue is the fridge going into the floor would waste a lot of space, unless you assume that there's either a large void space between floors already (maybe required by the structural elements or infrastructure of a building that size), or that [[RuleOfFunny he shares a fridge with his downstairs neighbor]].

In the 1940s my parents lived in apartment that shared its refrigerator with the neighbor on the other side of the wall. The part for food was separate but the freezer box (about big enough to hold two ice trays) was shared.[[/note]].

** Seing how Leelo was literally created a few days ago, I'd say no. Diva was just working with the Mandachivans.

*** ChrisTucker did an amazing job with this, though.
*** On the RiffTrax, Michael J Nelson sums it up as "That's so gay that it circles back around and becomes heterosexual again."
