Transnational Amusements Presents: Peggy's Magic Sex Feet - S4-E23

Question: Hank says that Boomhauer has known Peggy longer than he has. How did Boomhauer and Peggy meet first?

New today Answer: It is never mentioned.

Prey - S3-E14

Question: When Andrea escapes the Governor by releasing the stairwell of zombies on him, it does not look like she is actually hiding behind the door but that she is in the actual stairwell where the zombies are or in a different room. Some insight into this would be much appreciated.

New today Answer: She is behind the door.

Question: When Glenn Close (Bennett) tears up the signed papers at the end, I wondered is she legally allowed to do that?

New today Answer: The paper required her signature as Vice President to make it legally binding, she refused to sign it earlier in the movie so it wouldn't have been a legal document at the point she tore it up - so theoretically yes, she would have been able to.

Question: Near the ending, when Stacker removes his helmet to speak to Mako, why is the neural link or drift thing not harming Chuck since he's briefly solo?

New today Answer: The Jaeger isn't doing anything strenuous at this time, it's just standing still.

Question: Why wasn't Patrick arrested for killing the child molester?

New today Answer: Even though he executes an unarmed man, it is doubtful given the circumstances that he would be investigated with much fervor for his actions. One police officer has just been shot and killed so Patrick's actions could easily be described as self-defense in the eyes of an investigator. Anyone making a claim to the contrary would risk having to stand up for a child murdering cop killer.

Question: When the Rebels are evacuating from Hoth, Luke says goodbye to Han. Then we don't see him until he's running to his Snowspeeder. In that time, Vader has found out that Ozzel has messed up and promoted Piett, General Rieekan sends the transports out and one gets passed. What was Luke doing in all that time?

New today Answer: It's unknown what Luke was doing because nothing is shown. Any answer is speculation. Also, you are viewing the scene as a linear timeline, with events happening one after the other. In movies, the action often jumps back-and-forth and is unfolding simultaneously. The on-screen timeline can be more compressed than it appears.

Question: Why did Barney refuse to take the job to take out Monroe?

New today Answer: The intel they gathered on Church made them believe he would have killed them all upon completion of their mission.

Serious B

Question: Am I correct that when Henry Fonda is questioning the E.G. Marshall character about his recent activities Marshall says that the night before he worked until 8:30 then went home? The trial was every day for the past several days.

New this week Answer: He was actually talking about the night before the last one. Trials, especially longer ones for serious crimes such as murder, are not usually on consecutive days...often there is a recess after the prosecution rests, and another after the defense, before closing arguments and the jury's deliberation. During those recesses, unless they are sequestered, the jury members would return to their normal lives (including work), and report back to the court when summoned.

Question: Why does Storm believe that Jean (who in the comics is her best friend) is gone and will never come back and try to forget her?

New this week Answer: Why wouldn't Storm believe Jean is gone? She saw her (Jean) crushed by a giant wave and consumed by a giant lake. She has no reason to think that Jean will "come back, " and she tries to move on after her best friend's death, as you or anyone else would.

Question: When Bond realises he has been poisoned at the poker game, he mixes salt with water and drinks it. What was this supposed to do? Does salt mixed with water rid the body of hazardous chemicals or something?

New this week Answer: He did it to simply make himself vomit, which is what he does into the sink. Inducing vomiting is meant to rid the stomach of the poison that hasn't been absorbed (although this idea is debatable, Bond thought it was wise). However, he was still in danger because he already absorbed enough of the poison, which is why he goes to the car and injects the antidote (the injection he gives himself in the neck).

Question: Coruscant is basically destroyed in Star Wars: The Clone Wars cartoon show. Why didn't they show the destruction from the droid invasion after crashing Grievous' Invisible Hand into the planet?

New this week Answer: The Clone Wars show aired 3 years after the film came out. They had not planned on there having been a droid invasion.

Question: Hypothetically speaking, if Amidala did sign the treaty, how would that affect later events eventually leading up to the establishment of the Galactic Empire?

New this week Answer: In the long run, nothing would have changed. A war would still break out between the Republic and CIS, leading to Palpatine gaining power and subsequently becoming Emperor. The specifics may change, but the long-term outcome would not. It would, however, cause Amidala to not meet Anakin, and subsequently he would not become Darth Vader in an attempt to save her.

Question: #1 Wouldn't the space suits used on Mars have a heating device built into them, being it's so cold on Mars? Why did he have to rely on the RTG for heat in the rover? #2 Just before lifting off from Mars we see Watney cutting his hair and beard. He appears to be in another Hab, but when he's approaching the MAV in the rover, there's no Hab in site.

New this week Answer: 1) The suits are heated, however this uses power (something he is rationing) and requires him to wear the suit at all times. He often removes it whilst in the rover. This is elaborated upon in the book. 2) He is shaving in the base of the MAV, in the area containing the ascent spacesuit.

Question: When Logan returns to the mansion, how come Rogue got so excited? she couldn't have known it was him, and also, did she not think that it might upset Bobby that she was really excited to see another man?

New this week Answer: She has a bit of a crush on Logan, and when she heard the motorcycle (which Logan had "borrowed") she assumed it was him. She's a teenager, so she probably wasn't thinking about Bobby's feelings.

Question: Darth Vader hears from Palpatine that he killed his wife. How would Palpatine know? He didn't arrive on Mustafar until after Obi-wan left and took Padme to the medical facility. Also, if Palpatine found out how Padme died, how does he not know (yet) about Luke and Leia? She died after giving birth to them.

New this week Answer: You're missing the point: Palpatine lied. He knew Vader would be more pliable if he believed he'd caused her death.

Question: When Bond realises he has been poisoned at the poker game, he mixes salt with water and drinks it. What was this supposed to do? Does salt mixed with water rid the body of hazardous chemicals or something?

New this week Answer: He did it to simply make himself vomit, which is what he does into the sink. Inducing vomiting is meant to rid the stomach of the poison that hasn't been absorbed (although this idea is debatable, Bond thought it was wise). However, he was still in danger because he already absorbed enough of the poison, which is why he goes to the car and injects the antidote (the injection he gives himself in the neck).

Question: Got a few questions. First Question. When the emperor is killed in ROTJ, doesn't that mark the end of the Galactic Empire? If so, wouldn't the establishment of the New Republic mean that The First Order is at this point just an extremist group trying to throw a coup? Second Question: Whether or not the first question is a yes or a no, wouldn't the New Republic have knowledge of Starkiller Base being constructed? Third Question: Is there any influence as to why Kylo Ren basically gets temper tantrums? An example being when Rey escaped or when he found out the droid escaped Jakku Last Question: Kylo Ren stopped a strong laser bolt and has to ability to freeze people. How was he so easily beaten by Rey with no jedi training?

New this week Answer: Yes to the first. Not necessarily to the second, as they undoubtedly worked very hard to keep it secret. For the third question, the dark side of the force feeds on and enhances anger, rage, hatred. Ren is full of these emotions. As for the last question, remember that Ren took a shot to the guts from Chewbacca's bowcaster, a weapon that blows everyone it hits back several meters, killing them instantly. Ren took a knee for a moment then got right back up. He is using the bulk of his concentration on using his Force powers to survive and heal that wound and manage the pain. That's why he keeps beating his abdomen with his fist during his fight with Rey. Rey is also abnormally strong with the Force. These two factors combined to make their first fight evenly matched.

Question: Why is everyone cheering when Palpatine reorganizes the Republic to an empire? You'd think they'd be doing the opposite like Padme and Organa.

New this week Answer: Because they believe the Empire will be stronger and safer. They're making the historically dangerous choice of security over freedom.

Question: As someone else pointed out, Obi-wan states that Anakin wanted Luke to have his lightsaber when Luke was old enough. But Anakin violated the Jedi Order's rules by marrying and having children, so he (before he became Darth Vader) couldn't have expected Luke to join the Order himself someday and become a Jedi. Surely the Council would not have accepted Luke?

New this week Answer: The Jedi are discouraged from marrying and having relationships, but not from procreating. Based on council's views, Luke would actually be an ideal Jedi subject; He comes from a lineage strong in the force, but has no ties to his parents.

Question: What is the deal with everyone saying "beep beep" to Ritchie every time he tells a joke?

New this week Answer: It's their way of telling Richie to be quiet. To get him to stop talking.
