New this week Question: When Cedric makes the $10,000 bet, shouldn't he still have won the money even though Zeke moved the chips since not only was he not the person who placed the bet, but he also moved them after the host of the table surely called out no more bets?

Question: Two kids were drawing pictures on the steps when Mia goes out with her baby, Leah. Who are the children?

New this week Answer: It is believed that they are the child selves of the two Satanists that died earlier in the film.

Question: What is the title of the black-and-white movie that Mia was watching while knitting on the bed?

New this week Answer: It is actually an episode from the show General Hospital.

New this week Question: Riley runs away from home in the morning, not going to school, but the bus only leaves San Francisco in the evening. Where was Riley all day?

Question: When did Andy bury the box?

New this month Answer: It's never explicitly stated in the film. All we know is, he buried it after he escaped and before Red found it.

Question: I never understood what happened to Clayton at the end, did he, along with some of his men, escape?

New this month Answer: He was hung by the vine. He fell and it went tight and snapped his neck off screen. He is dead.

Quantom X

Question: The part where Hank, Bessie, Lee and Charlie were in the living room and Hank gets a chip, why did Lee asked him to put back the chip because she said that "Bessie hasn't offered him the chip yet and he has to wait to be asked" and when Bessie offered him the chip and Hank refuses, why did Lee forced him to get one? I'm so confused.

New this month Answer: Lee is being an overbearing mother with strict rules and Hank is a little mentally unstable (most likely because of Lee's parenting). Hank is just resisting his mother and probably even felt embarrassed and angry. It's a scene meant to show the strained relationship Lee and Hank have.

New this month Question: What was Abby's power?

Perfect School (2) - S3-E12

New this month Question: What was Brian talking about with the sheep over in Scotland after he found out about the schools' plan?

The Serpent's Lair (3) - S2-E1

Question: OK, so we're all familiar with the whole 'gate priority system, which was ignored by the producers so they could give Earth a second Stargate for some epic foreshadowing of the episodes Nemesis and Redemption Pt. 2. So here goes. Why, when you take that gate priority into consideration, was the SGC able to gate to the Alpha site to start evacuating the "best and brightest" when the 'gate Apophis brought to Earth, presumably to block any outgoing wormholes, had a DHD hooked up? I get that it was necessary to give Daniel and the scum-sucking, overdressed, boom-box-voice, snake-in-the-head, seventh-on our-increasingly-long-list-of-dead-bad-guys (as of Threshold) a way off the Ha'tak before it exploded, but its functionality should have said "NO!" to the SGC's attempts to gate out.

New this month Answer: The gate with priority is the one that will be activated when gating TO Earth. You can still gate out with any available stargate. The plan to prevent escape involves Apophis dialing from his Ha'tak so that a second wormhole can't be opened from SGC.

Question: What was the purpose of Nux's idea concerning overturning one single tree?

New this month Answer: The truck was stuck in the sand and they had to use the tree to winch it out - the tree was used as an anchor. The weight of the truck and soft sand pulled the tree out.

New this month Question: Why did Frank's co-worker (whom he sent flowers to) file a sexual harassment complaint against Frank, when she appeared interested in him?

The One with Mrs. Bing - S1-E11

Question: When we first see Mrs Bing on TV, Jay Leno mentions that she recently got arrested and asks how it came about. Her response is "occasionally, after being intimate with a man, I just get a craving for Kung Pao chicken" This gets a lot of cheers and laughter from the audience and Chandler shouts "that's too much information!" at the TV. What was happening here? Why does what Mrs Bing said get so much of a reaction from everyone and not answer the question she was asked? Am I missing something?

New this month Answer: Nora Bing, Chandler's mother, is a famous author of steamy romance novels. Like many celebrities, she deflects direct personal questions by giving a non-direct answer. In this case, she gives a somewhat titillating response that amuses the audience by ambiguously implying that after having sex, she has a need to rush out for Chinese food and that resulted in the escapade getting her arrested. Chandler is constantly embarrassed by both his parents, and his mother in particular because he feels she does not act her age and is sexually uninhibited.

New this month Question: Why did Urbani go to the trouble of framing Paganini of having intercourse with underage Charlotte? Rather than just let it happen and Paganini face the consequences anyways the same, he set it so he accidentally slept with a different girl and framed him for Charlotte which caused him and Charlotte to never get together. His career was going to have the same road with or without her, so why did he make it so Paganini suffered the same consequences of sleeping with Charlotte, but set it so Charlotte thought he was cheating and left him? I don't understand Urbani's motivations here since he pledged himself to serve Paganini, despite that Urbani is in fact the Devil or a demon.

Question: Given how dumb Biff is, how in the alternate 1985 when confronted by Marty did he remember his old self in 1955 warning him about Marty and Doc. Especially considering when he got the warning, he seemed to be paying very little attention and just walking off.

New this month Answer: After young Biff won bet after bet after bet, he realized that the old Biff was obviously the real deal. As such, he undoubtedly racked his brain in an attempt to recall every detail he could about his encounter with his older self.

Phixius

Question: How did Dylan's team not see their reflections in the mirror in the apparently empty vault, and why don't said reflections show in the recording for that matter?

New this month Answer: The mirror was inserted at an angle, so that the reflection was the ceiling and not what was in front of them. It's the same principle for how periscopes work.

Question: Was Kreiger going to kill Ethan Hunt above the vault immediately after grabbing the disk from Ethan's mouth? Earlier when Ethan says, "Zero body count," Kreiger responds "We'll see," insinuating maybe he's still planning to kill somebody. As soon as Ethan's to the top, Kreiger grabs the disk, a quick, "Merci" (as if saying thanks, now goodbye), and the knife is already out, but luckily dropped. They are both so freaked out at such a near miss, Ethan doesn't even notice Kreiger was going to kill him. Did this cross anybody else's mind? Why else was the knife out to be dropped?

New this month Answer: Krieger presumably used his knife to kill the rat in the vent. It's unlikely he would have tried to kill Ethan above the vault, as there would have been a noisy struggle which would set off the intrusion countermeasures. Luther would have also seen it happen on Ethan's head-mounted camera.

Sierra1

New this month Question: After the fight scene when Blade is talking to the Wild Hogs, Tim Allen appears to have some type of business card in his hand. As Blade walks away, he looks at the card. Where did the card come from?

Question: Why does Harry simply drop his wand when Voldemort casts a disarming spell? When Professor Snape used it on Gilderoy Lockhart in the second movie, Lockhart rose into the air and fell. This also happened to Snape when Harry used the spell on him in the third movie.

New this month Answer: A wizard can control how much force they use in a spell-anything from mild to extreme. Voldemort simply wanted to relieve Harry of his wand, not harm him. At this point, Harry is more valuable to him alive.

Question: How did Graham know that Dollarhyde was the man committing murders, and that he drove a van just because the home videos were processed at the lab where the latter worked?

New this month Answer: He's figured out earlier that the Tooth Fairy had a van. Graham noticed that at one of the houses, the Tooth Fairy knew everything he had to do and bring with him and at the other house, he didn't know about the new lock on the door because the Tooth Fairy had gotten his information from the same home movies that Graham had been watching. Once the films had been traced to the lab where Dolarhyde worked, it was easy to link them back to him as the only person who'd had access to both.
