    Mom and Dad's emotions pictured. Notice that in the Mom's headquarters, Sadness seems to be in control? And Anger for the dad? And Joy for the kid? Gah- I love it. A little stereotypical, sure, but accurate. Also, the mom's daydream about the Brazilian dream boat "come fly with me!!" And my favorite, later in the movie the pre-teen boy after Riley says hello to him, his headquarters pure chaos "GIRL GIRL GIRL" 😂😂
