At G.A.C.C., Pleakley is given his own office and the keys to the G.A.C.C. ship. Later in the movie, Hämsterviel, who had been broken out of prison with Gantu's help, locks Jumba, Pleakley, and Stitch in Pleakley's space vehicle, and sends the ship into a black hole.
As Jumba, Pleakley, and Stitch head towards the black hole, Stitch escapes and frees the others. However, the navigational computer is locked on course for the black hole. Jumba says that the black hole will teleport them to a volcanic planet where they will be instantly vaporized, but if they can disrupt the event horizon, it will send them somewhere else. Pleakley pulls out the rock that Lilo gave him and Stitch throws it at the black hole. There is a flash and the vehicle is sucked in.
Meanwhile, Lilo and Reuben arrive at Turo in Gantu's repaired ship to warn the Grand Councilwoman about Hämsterviel, but they are too late. Hämsterviel has taken over using Leroy and orders Gantu to lock them up, then turn in his I.D. card and cape. Gantu captures Lilo and Reuben, but decides to release them because Hämsterviel fired him. After a close call with several Leroy clones, they are trapped. All looks lost until the G.A.C.C. van suddenly appears. With no time to explain, Lilo, Reuben, and Gantu all climb in and head for Earth.
