1 Kev's Ticket In The Garbage
Just going off the amount of discussion that this little tidbit from Home Alone gets online, we figured we have to include this as number one. It seems that a lot of people just thought that Kevin's parents were terrible people and forgot their child without any logical reminders. Well, they kind of are still, but let's go through the steps. First, milk is spilled on the passports and the tickets. Kevin's dad wipes it up, but he accidentally throws out Kevin's ticket in the process. You can see "Kevin" written at the top of the ticket in the garbage. Next comes the head count. That little rugrat neighbor got his head in the count and the sister is fooled. She then imparts that count to the mother. Next is the airport. The lady at the ticket counter takes all the tickets that she's given and then counts the heads as they rush on to the plane. The reason she doesn't raise an alarm is because there is a proper amount of tickets for heads. It's only when mom checks her wallet, potentially seeing a picture of Kevin that she remembers.
