He goes to apologize to her for saying such a mean thing but, the Martians are kidnapping her. He follows the Martians to their ship and stows away, planning to get his mom back. The Martians find him and lock him away in the jail. He is released by Gribble who has been hiding on Mars for years. Gribble lives underneath the Martians complex. Milo learns that the females run the planet and the supervisor is their leader. The male children are sent down the garbage chute to be raised by the other males of the planet.
