Question: Something I couldn't figure out. The black fluid (in the glass cylinder) made Wikus start turning into an alien. If the aliens were mainly interested in going back to their planet, why had they been developing a substance that could turn humans into aliens? How would this help them go home?
Question: A question concerning Rex the dinosaur. His nervous personality, along with a few of the lines he says, ("I just can't take that kind of rejection." "I don't like confrontations!") are very similar to George McFly from Back to the Future. Is it possible that Wallace Shawn based his role of Rex on George McFly?
Question: I was wondering. Does Sid destroy toys because his father beats/abuses Sid, so Sid lets out his anger on toys? This would explain all the locks on Sid's door, to hide from his father and to hide what he does to toys. When Scud is looking for Woody, he notices Sid's father sleeping, and Scud walks away, which could mean that Scud doesn't want to wake up Sid's father knowing he is a cruel and violent man.
Question: Is it ever revealed why Candy has the abortion? She is in a relationship with the baby's father, they both have jobs, etc. Is it because she doesn't want to raise the baby herself while he's at war?
Question: At the end of the movie, at one point, Francis loses the stick bug. While looking for him, he says, "I'm right here, the only stick with eyeballs!" or something like that. Can he actually be found on the screen or, for comedic purposes, was it impossible to find him?
Question: When the toys are trying to get into the big building, Rex comments that they can use balloons to float to the 23rd floor. Could this have possibly been a reference to Up, or just a coincidence? The teaser trailer for Wall-e shows that they had the idea for Wall-e almost 15 years before it being made, so was the idea of Up being developed around the time of Toy Story 2?
