  • Lilo embarasses herself infront of Keoni, so her and Stitch use Jumba's time machine to prevent this from happening. however a side effect of the time machine is that something will change each time(in this case go wrong).moreless

    After Lilo's humiliated infront of Keoni, she uses Jumba's time machine with Stitch to go back and stop herself from embarassing herself. But a side effect is that something else is changed in the past aswell. Meanwhile a melting experiment "Melty" is activated and causes trouble melting everything including entire buildings, which is what led Lilo up to her embarassing moment. While trying to catch the experiment each time they go back in the timestream, that something goes wrong while trying to catch "Melty", the experiment, to the point where everything is melted, including the time machine, meaning they can't go back to their own time, or so they think. On one of the time trips Lilo and Stitch actually traveled to the future where it seems everything was owned by Mertle and Lilo's ohana was destroyed. They meet up with Future Jumba(who also warns present Jumba not to build a robot wife, to easy to gain acsess to bank accounts) Future Jumba built a new time machine and explains that the only way to fix everything is to re-enact everything the way it was meant to happen, meaning that Lilo has to re-live her embaraasing moment with Keoni. But she later finds out that there was nothing to be embarassed about when she recieves a surprise visit. Meanwhile Melty's one true place is melting metals at the aluminium recycling deposit.

    This episode was really cute with an unusual plot twist which made it more interesting to watch :)moreless
  • Well same things happen again and again!!!!!!!!!

    Well same things happen again and again!!!!!!!!

    I mean look at this all they did was to go back on that stupid space machine like none of them have achieved something until the end well all I can say is that Lilo is cute and Stitch too! Well this episode is like short short short!

    That's why it's just an ordinary average episode of a Disney Channel Series entitled Lilo and Stitch!
  • You have to be REALLY careful when working with time travel.

    If you're going to use time travel, you have to go over the events in the episode and make sure not to make mistakes, because in this situation, it's pretty easy to make errors. Some little nitpicks are already listed as trivia.

    But besides that, Melty's believable, and adorable to boot. The story itself is interesting, and fun to find out how each small change in the past makes a difference. Although, if Lilo had done things differently the first time, I bet the drastic things like the ship crashing wouldn't have happens. Some events seem to be taking vengence just because they were caused by time travel.

    Still, ignoring small defects, it's a sound episode. Why does Melty have wings though?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • "Melty" was based on one of the original designs for the Mushu dragon of "Mulan".

    • In order to go back in time the third time, Lilo and Stitch had to get out of jail somehow. Stitch can rip off the walls in jail or they went back in time to stop from going to jail.

    • If the paradox inhibiter Jumba put on the time board prevents there being two of the same person in the same place, yet there was a Jumba still there in the present when he came. Jumba told himself something to help himself so maybe he DID want to see his past self or it's a different time machine and he didn't want to waste time making a paradox inhibitor.

    • Jumba from the future said in order to repair the time line, things must go EXACTLY as they went the first time. But things didn't go exactly the way they did the first time. The first time Lilo growled to demonstrate her hula, but she didn't the last time.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Clones Lilo and Stitch hit the normal Lilo into the mud.)
      Lilo and clone: Uh-oh. Someone forgot to switch off the paradox inhibitor.

    • 625: Hey, sleepyhead, have a good nap?
      Gantu: Wonderful. Anything happened while I was asleep?
      625: Oh, the usual: make sandwiches, make a laser autograph on your patookie. Nothing usual.
      Gantu: You lasered my patookie?!
      625: Ha! I knew you were a deep sleeper. Wanna see it?
      Gantu: Wanna see this!

    • Pleakley: Did I say Time Machine? I meant... um... Rhyme Machine! Helps you bust a funky rhyme! "My name is Pleakley and I'm all about style, from my shirts to my dresses to my bathroom tile!"

    • Woman: Is the hotel melting?
      Man: They'd better give us a discount!

    • Lilo: (to herself) I'm practicing for a hula about a mud monster? What a loser.

    • Lilo: Here's what we've got to avoid: a cruise ship wrecking on the island, running into ourselves, and a giant tidal wave crashing the island.

    • Jumba: What are you doing here?
      Future Jumba: I have come to give you warning. Whatever you do, do not build robot wife. Is too easy for them to hack into bank account.
