  • Stitch is said to be too dense to swim. But he's also able to lift and throw a car, wouldn't he be strong enough to pull himself underwater?
    • He's just too heavy; he'd sink like a rock.
      • But why? I'd understand if he was just too heavy but not super strong, so he wouldn't be able to propel himself upwards, but he is super strong. If he kick, won't he generate enough force downwards to kick him upwards?
        • Movement in a fluid is not just about the ability to exert force (kicking and pulling), it's about having the ability to exert force (kicking and pulling) efficiently enough to counteract the return movement (pulling one's legs up and pushing one's arms forward) quickly enough to counteract the resistance (Stitch's density pulling him down through the water).
        • Stronger things can't always swim better- chimpanzees can't swim, in fact, because they have too MUCH muscle and not enough body fat to float well.
  • In the Dupe episode Lilo complains that Mertle and her posse are her only friends outside of Stitch. She has more than 4 experament friends outside of Stitch and some of them showed up to the party her "friends" missed. I can see her not noticing but nobody ever calls her on this type of logic which she maintains throughout the series.
  • I don't get the whole, "convinced an alien race that mosquitos were and indangered species" thing. Do the aliens have a strange fondness for mosquitos, and so didn't want to destroy Earth? Then why did they make the big deal about them being endangered, when they would all get destroyed with Earth, endangered or not?
    • Perhaps mosquitos are actually an alien race, and destroying them would be an act of genocide?
    • My guess, Bubbles was finding any law that would spare the Earth and the human race. Might be that the only one that he could find in time to justify not attacking Earth.
    • Rule of Funny.
    • My guess was actually that if Cobra was gonna pick any species to call endangered, he might as well pick one that's considerably NOT endangered. The longer the species in question lasts, the longer Earth lasts.
    • Fridge Brilliance. Pleakly was afraid of harming Lilo because she was part of the mosquito food chain. On Earth, almost everything is food for mosquitos, so if he claimed mosquitoes as endangered species, then all of Earth is effectively protected.
  • At the part in the movie where Lilo's house gets on fire, then Nani sees the fire truck heading toward their house and she says: "Don't turn left." Is her house the only one on the left of the grocery store?
    • It's Kauai, an extremely rural island-and she's clearly living in an extremely rural part of that. Could be.
    • And even if that wasn't the case, you have to take Adult Fear into account. Most parents/guardians who are just easing into the concept of leaving their children home alone will flip out over the smallest thing indicating something may have gone wrong. That, and/or Nani's just Genre Savvy enough to know that anything that can go wrong WILL go wrong.
  • "Aliens are all about rules"? Really, Bubbles? Even disregarding that that's a very dangerous generalization to make, the whole plot of the movie exists because an alien broke the rules!
    • Maybe not rogues like Jumbaa, but it appears that the Galactic Council follows any rules to the letter. The head wanted to take Stitch away for no other reason than the Council decided it, and they wouldn't even break the most petty of laws like stealing a dog some kid bought from the pound for two bucks.
  • Why were experiments like Hunkahunka and Morpholomew created? How can either making everyone fall in love or shapeshifting take over a planet at all?
    • Jumba was probably still figuring out how to get different abilities through genetic research. They are experiments, after all.
      • I meant that they're useless for what Jumba was intending for them to do, i.e. Take over planets.
        • You're missing what I'm saying. They were experiments. EXPERIMENT DOES NOT MEAN SUCCESSFUL EXPERIMENT.
    • On top of that, falling in love and shapeshifting could actually be useful when it comes to taking over the world. If I'm remembering the episodes correctly Hunkahunka made the person who "Fell in love" follow the other person and do whatever they said in an attempt to please them, getting someone with a powerful position or a lot of money to do that for you could help. And morphing is obvious, you shape shift into someone in a powerful position (president, king, etc.) and use that power to take over.
  • Why did Lilo have a fetish for taking pictures of fat people? It always struck me as kind of creepy.
    • I don't think it's a fetish, more like an obsession. She's a little girl and she probably thinks fat people are weird looking and wants to photograph them. Don't ask me why, because I don't know what goes on in the head of a little girl.
    • There is also the fact that most of the people she photographed were tourists - outsiders. Perhaps she relates to the fact that they are different?
  • What is it called when the viewer is wrenched by the helplessness of the character? The more minor example from the movie is when Jumba's ship is following Gantu's and he says "We stay close, hope for a miracle. That's all we can do."
  • Why would you put a "dog" you think is dead in a pound with live dogs? Seriously...
