Question about "The Incredible Shrinking Woman"

It's been years since I've seen the film. Can someone remind me, how does Lily's character get back to her normal size again? Thanks!

I seem to recall her shrinking down into a puddle of spilled chemicals of some kind.

And now I have the Galaxy Glue jingle in my head.

HA HA HA HA HA. Sorry about that. I remember her shrinking down to nothing, but don't remember how they brought her back. Can anyone else confirm she was in chemicals at the time and that's how she regained her normal size?

She didn’t — her doppelgänger came up from the subway tunnels and replaced her.


I used to watch this movie on Beta all the time as a kid ... but I don’t remember anything about it.

I can confirm. She shrunk down to "nothing" and her tiny clothes blew into some spilled chemicals which started swirling around after people had left.

Re: Question about "The Incredible Shrinking Woman"

Speaking of her escape to a crowd of people, she continues to shrink, saying her goodbyes before becoming microscopic in size. Vanishing from sight, she is again presumed dead, but in fact she falls into a puddle of spilled household chemicals - which return her to her original size. After her homecoming celebrating her returning to a normal size she notices that her wedding ring is now too tight while her foot is splitting her shoe open, suggesting she might still be growing.

I saw this in the theater and probably on cable just after but it's been a long time since. I remember the gorilla aka Rick Baker.
