* Simon fails a test and ends up suspended. It seems fine at first when Dave tries to calm him down, but then Simon gets so fed up with his brothers and the Chipettes that he leaves the house for a WEEK. Alvin imagining him as a crazed hermit doesn’t seem so far-fetched now, does it? Also, the dummy of Simon drifts into [[UncannyValley Uncanny Valley]] territory.
* For a cop, Officer Dangus is pretty incompetent. Many criminals have almost gotten away with theft because of him. If the Chipmunks hadn’t talked some sense into him, he likely would have been fired long ago. Imagine if there were an ATTEMPTED MURDER happening and no one was around to help him.
