** It's actually worse if you consider the fact that Russel only ever mentions things he and his father used to do together or whatever empty promises he's recently made. This combined with the how uncomfortable Russel is even mentioning his stepmother seems to indicate that [[WickedStepmother Phyllis doesn't like Russel]], and that, either at her behest or not, Russel's father has abandoned him emotionally in favor of his new family. And Russel, at least until the end of the movie, [[ThePollyanna still believed that his dad would show him how to set up a tent and come to his badge ceremony]].

Irrelevant.
*** Wait a minute... a highly-critically-acclaimed 2009 film scored by Michael Giacchino, the first ten minutes of which are famous for making people cry? [[Film/StarTreK Sounds incredibly familiar...]]

** This could be interpreted as two things: Russel's parents are simply divorced, or [[TearJerker he lives in the care of only his stepmother, Phyllis]].

* The ''intro.'' [[spoiler: The lives of two people very much in love, from their youth til they are parted by death - complete with the shared dream they were never able to complete.]] The creators were worried that the old man's reasons for going on his fantastic voyage would appear to be [[spoiler: suicidal - "he just wants to join his wife"]].

** Note that Mick [=LaSalle=] of the ''San Francisco Chronicle'', who thought ''WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}}'' could stand to be half an hour shorter, was [[http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/05/28/MV6617S4LC.DTL pretty much blown away by that intro]].

** For more specifics, the moment when [[spoiler: Ellie goes into hospital and pushes the Adventure Book into Carl's hands. The sheer disbelief and grief in the look he gives her, since she's just told him, still without dialogue, that she isn't going to make it...]] And it crosses with Heartwarming, but it's also obvious that these two have spent their entire lives together, with her even joining him at work at the zoo. To say Carl will feel like a spare part without Ellie is an understatement.

** The way the music slows down to underscore that moment.

** Alternatively, it could be Ellie finding out she's sterile.
