*** "Hello, is this the FAA? Yes, the ''Spirit of Adventure'' is moored at our ice cream shop!... ''Spirit of Adventure?'' Charles Muntz flew it to South America around 1940 and was never seen again, but an old man and a Wilderness Explorer just flew it up to our ice cream... hello? Hello?"

** Given that they both had to work, and were using loose change to save up for Paradise Falls, and they had to keep breaking into their Paradise Falls fund to pay for stuff, it seems that they were very probably dirt poor. Thus, as the above troper noted, their honeymoon was repairing the house. Actually (although maybe it was because I had seen this the day before), it reminded me of ItsAWonderfulLife more than anything, because the exact same thing happens.

*** After thinking about it for a bit, this is what I've come up with: Russell's parents are divorced because his father cheated on his mother. In the divorce his mom got custody, but Russell goes to live with his dad on the weekends. The time spent in South America was when he was supposed to be with his father, but his father didn't even notice he left to get a Wilderness Explores badge and never came back.//
//
Which would make his a terrible father.

** I'd like to think that Carl told her that he'd be there to give Russel the badge. She didn't seem to make a commotion while Russel was standing onstage without his father.

**That never happened. The old man was just imagining things.

* At the badging ceremony, we see a happy woman with Dug. That must be Russel's mom. If she was there, couldn't she give him the badge? Of course despite this his dad should have been there but still.

* Soon after Carl lets Russell into his flying house, Carl tries to lower Russell down to the ground but accidentally lets go. Then we see Russell back in the house. How does Russell get back in?

** Well, Golden Retrievers are actually hunting dogs. Maybe Muntz wanted some soft-mouthed breed to, well, ''retrieve'' the bird after it had been caught. For all we know, he has spaniels around to help flush it out! And don't we see some hounds in there? They'd be better at tracking the bird. Alpha, Beta, Gamma should be team leaders, organizing the pack's hunts, rather than running around themselves. And why doesn't he have a Poodle or a Border Collie in there, too? Unless those breeds proved ''too'' intelligent and independent for Muntz's purposes . . .

** Have you ever ''tried'' setting one of those things up? All those poles that keep hitting you in the head and elastics and the thing keeps falling over when you try to put the thing in it? And then there's those dealies on the bottom with the little holes in them that you're supposed to put those other doohickets into to hold the other stuff up and they never fit and then it starts raining and that thing that goes over the other thing keeps blowing away and ...

Doing it by oneself is nigh-on ''impossible''. And Russell's just a little kid ...
