** Because she was glowing and knocking down the building around them while she was turning into a 50-foot monster. ''They are not in a situation where calm and rational thought is going to prevail''.

Added DiffLines:

* Why did most people at the wedding start treating Susan like a monster the first moment she turned into a giant? Hasn't she met and known those people for a time before it happened? I mean, sure, you have to get outside in order to, you know, safely avoid collateral damage, and probably the government, who arrived just before that incident, apprehended those people away from Susan as they are capturing her.



to:

* Insectosaurus is obviously a Kaiju-type monster. Where's the usual annoying little kid?


* Susan's hair turned from brown to white when she grew into a giantess, obviously as a side effect from absorbing the quantonium-filled meteor. Why didn't her turn back to brown when Gallaxhar drained the quantonium from her, turning her to normal size?

***** Or "[[DeadLikeMe Oh, shi-]]", and her legs (well, lower consciousness, the bit that sets up the fight-or-flight response, you know what I mean) did the running.

** In Kafka's {{Metamorphosis}}, after turning into a giant vermin, Gregor Samsa suddenly finds that he no longer likes his favorite human foods, and prefers old rotten stuff instead. Perhaps it's the same here.

* One thing that's bugged me is how people keep insisting that Insectosaurus is female just because of how he looks (IE: [[TeritarySexualCharacteristics big eyelashes, lips, busty body when he's a butterfly]]). Insects in general don't follow the conventional means of male/female differences the way humans do. Likewise, it's possible for someone/something to look female but still be male (Which is why the term DudeLooksLikeALady exists) since gender and sex are ''not'' the same thing (Hence why some people view themselves as of the female/male gender, but are of the male/female biological sex). Not to mention that gender/sex means ''nothing'' to insects since many species are able to change their sex when necessary.

** [[MathematiciansAnswer The same way they solved those problems for Insectosaurus.]] And if you ask how they solved ''her'' problems, money and an insane ammount of high end engineering. Where did they get the money? They opened a highly lucrative fertilizer/methane combustion power plant business that funds a good chunk of their expenses. ("When it rains lemons, make lemonade" and all that.)
** Um. Each monster has its own living quarters. Susan has her own room, as big for her as a dorm room would be for you and I. Each of the other monsters has a proportionally sized room, and even the big room they have communally isn't "extremely enclosed", as it's, well, ''really big''. Didn't you pay attention to her whole introduction to the facility?

** I vaguely recall Link or BOB referring to it with female pronouns at some point in the sequel.

* Besides the fact that it makes for a nice TitleDrop, why does Gallaxhar call his army of clones "aliens"? They're not aliens to ''him'', they're the same race as he is.

Added DiffLines:

*** Insectosaurus must have ''some'' intelligence, considering it helped the Missing Link cheat at Go Fish against B.O.B. It's at least smart enough to count to three and/or recognize the numbers on cards. Being mesmerized by light is simply the big bug's WeaksauceWeakness, not a sign of mindlessness.
