Added DiffLines:

** When Ellie first appears, she mentions "seeing" a puppy and a storm. On the way to Paradise Falls, the house ends up in a storm, and a puppy could refer to Muntz's dogs, but most likely it could refer to Dug, the first dog Carl and Russell come across.


Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Carl tries to stop a construction worker from touching his mailbox and bashes him over the head with his cane hard enough to draw blood. Carl has this reaction and retreats inside, knowing [[CorruptCorporateExecutive the real estate boss]] will use this as an excuse to take his land from him.


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Muntz, right before he falls to his death from thousands of feet in the air.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SoWhatDoWeDoNow: Carl's plan to get the house to Paradise Falls succeeds eventually, [[spoiler:but in saving the house from being burned by Muntz, he gave up Kevin, angrily sent Dug away and turned Russell against him.]] When they finally get there, Russell angrily dumps his sash at Carl's feet, saying he doesn't want it any more, and sits down on a rock a good way from the house. Carl enters the house, and just sits in his chair in silence, not really knowing what to do next. [[spoiler:Until he sees Ellie's adventure book...]]

Not to be confused with the 1976 Russ Meyer film of the same name, which is... not for children to say the least.

* CoolGuns: Charles Muntz fires a Sharps 1863. It was an antiquated rifle even in the 20s-30s, but still popular in big game hunting at that time, so it's not surprising an old school guy like Muntz would be using it.

** Carl was actually born in 2008 as a little kid instead of in 2009 as an old man.

** This applies to [[spoiler:Muntz]] as well: he used 70-year-old technology to make the dogs' collars that not only allow them to talk but be tracked as well.
*** The guy even created a version of ComicStrip/DickTracy's video wristwatch for the dogs!

* BaitAndSwitch: It's hinted that Russell's DisappearedDad will finally show up at the ceremony if Russell gets his final [[ScoutOut Wilderness Explorer]] badge, [[spoiler:but when Russell is at the ceremony in the second-to-last scene, right when we're all set to see a heartwarming redemption/family bonding scene... his dad still never shows. Carl comes up to do it instead]].

** When Carl hits a construction worker on the head with his cane, the worker sustains a serious injury and Carl has to face legal consequences.
