My Day Off - S1-E9

New today Question: What is the song playing at the nightclub "The Free Clinic" when JD walks in to see Turk dancing with Jennifer?

New today Question: What is the significance of the wound and blood we see on the back of Ray Liotta when he takes off his coat for a minute? The camera focuses in, so it is important, but I have never figured that out. It almost seems just where the wound would be where he stabbed the cop who was driving his car.

New today Question: A nit-picky question, but why did Hermione tear out a book's page of information about the basilisk? I have read the novel and Professor McGonagall says that she was found *near* the library when petrified, not *in* it. So I am puzzled about why she would want to damage a book instead of borrowing it.

New today Question: Why can't the video just be passed to inmates on death row?

New today Question: How does Wahlberg realizes that the head of police is the man sleeping with the mayor's wife?

New today Question: Several times near the end of the movie, there is a biker type man. He is wearing some Harley Davidson clothing and a black leather cap. He is one of the pilots. He stands out if he is just an extra. Is he anyone famous?

New this week Question: So what are these tournaments called in China? I'm trying to find one similar to them but am having a hard time.

Show generally

Question: As a term of endearment, Eyal always calls Annie "neshama." I'm assuming it's Hebrew, but what does it mean?

New this week Answer: It is Hebrew. It means "soul" but is used as a term of endearment as in you're a part of me, "Neshama shellee" means "my soul".

Show generally

New this week Question: Is there any reference to other witches, besides the sisters, that have vanquished a source? Or are they the only witches ever to be powerful enough? The source does have the ability to be reconstituted with a spell in the grimoire.

Dr. Nobel - S1-E6

New this week Question: If the death ray is about to go off and they are trying to restore the doctor's memory, why does Henry get dressed up for the ceremony, but then has time to change and get back in the hole he's digging to access the power source when no one else takes the time to change? If they have given up on the hole, why would he even change back? If they haven't, why would he waste time at the ceremony?

Question: How could they possibly remove Archer's bullet scar? If they could, wouldn't that just create a bigger scar?

New this week Answer: Surgical scar removal is a real thing, usually involving skin grafts or lasers. Keloid scarring is a result of the body aggressively attempting to heal/repair itself after trauma or injury (in this case, the gunshot). With proper surgical techniques, the body isn't traumatized to the point that deep scarring occurs. Of course, just like with the face surgery, the movie exaggerates the results of the scar removal.

Question: At the end, how did Wanda know that "Castor" was really Archer?

New this week Answer: Because Eve told her.

Greg Dwyer

New this week Question: What exactly did MJ's father say to her when he was yelling at her at home?

New this week Question: Why were Pollux and Archer sent straight to prison without a trial?

Question: Why does Voldemort say that Barty Jr.'s loyalty has never faltered? At his trial, Barty Jr. got upset and tried to deny that he helped torture the Longbottoms.

New this week Answer: Of course Barty denied it. He would do anything to keep from being convicted, and it has nothing to do with his loyalty to Voldemort. If he's sent to prison, he can't serve his master very well.

Saw

Question: When loading the bullet into the gun, why didn't they realise that the chambers of the revolver were empty of any spent cartridges? They could have easily concluded that the "corpse" wasn't dead and the film would have ended quite differently.

New this week Answer: First, odds are neither of them had much experience with guns. They wouldn't necessarily think about it. Second, who's to say that the person who put them there wouldn't have removed it anyway.

Greg Dwyer

Question: What kind of judge would agree to this kind of custody arrangement?

New this week Answer: None. It's total fiction made up solely for the purpose of the movie. Even for a movie, it's far beyond the "suspension of disbelief" that siblings would ever be divided up between the two parents, and neither would have no contact with them, much less be prevented from knowing they had a brother or sister.

Season 1 generally

Question: The kitchen door to Gemma and Clay's house opens outward in the first couple of seasons, then in the later seasons it opens inward. Is that a mistake or did they have to repair the door and put it on the wrong way? Just wanting to verify.

New this week Answer: It's quite common for long-running TV series to make subtle changes to the set design, such as changing which way a door opens. Usually it's because the original design was not working, either physically or visually, and the decision is made to change it.

raywest

New this week Question: Right before the fight between Preston and DuPont, DuPont re-quotes Sean Bean "you tread on my dreams." How did he know that quote, and why did he know it would mean anything to Preston?

New this week Question: In the later scene where the two Asian gang members are being interrogated to discover who hired them, they jokingly say something to each other in their own language, the translator cop makes some smug comment back, and then reveals to Steven Bauer that their employer was Lauderdale. Is anyone able to translate what was said during this little exchange?
