Question: How many Death Stars have there been?

New today Answer: In the official canon, just the two we've seen in the original trilogy - in Star Wars and Return of the Jedi.

Jon Sandys

Question: Why did the whole concept of "Midichlorians" introduced in this film anger so many Star Wars fans? I'm not a huge Star Wars fan myself, but I've heard nothing but hate for them.

New today Answer: Because it took a magical, mystical, and mysterious concept and reduced it to a blood-borne chemical.

Question: Is it just me, or did Heath Ledger seem much shorter in The Dark Knight than he did in his other movies? If so, how did they do it?

New today Answer: One of his character traits as the Joker is his hunched posture. He's not standing fully upright.

Question: 3 questions: Was the planet Krennic goes to to talk to Vader supposed to be Mustafar? If so, why would Vader want to go there of all places? Lastly, what was the reason Krennic went to visit Vader?

New today Answer: Yes, Pablo Hidalgo from the Lucasfilm Story Group confirmed Vader's palace was on Mustafar. Gary Whitta who wrote the story, suggested that he lived there because "he wants to punish himself" for turning to the dark side. Krennic visits Vader because he wants him to arrange a personal audience with the Emperor and cut Tarkin out of the equation.

Question: I have 3 questions. 1. How come Katniss wanted Mags as an ally? 2. Why didn't she want Finnick as an ally? 3. Plutarch said half the tributes were in on getting Katniss out of the quarter quell. Is it known what tributes were in on it?

New today Answer: 1, She chose Mags because she liked her and wanted to protect her as much as possible. 2. Katniss didn't trust Finnick. She didn't know he was one of her allies. 3. Not all of the Tributes who are allies are named.

ER

Show generally

Question: In what episode was Ella born? I remember Cordway being pregnant and then I remember them talking about sleepless nights because of the baby but I don't remember seeing anything about labor.

New today Answer: It's season 7's "Sailing Away", but we don't actually see Corday in the delivery room. We see Mark blasting the song "Sailing Away" so he doesn't hear Corday calling to him about her contractions, but after their hospital visit it turned out to only be Braxton Hicks. Later in the episode they show up at the hospital again when Corday is "ready to pop", and next we see Mark carrying Ella (after her 'newborn screening') bringing her to Corday, who then nurses Ella for the first time.

Question: When Belle shows the villagers Beast in the Magic Mirror, why does it show him roaring like a monster?

New today Answer: I don't think he was really roaring - he looked like he was yawning, so to the villagers he looked like he was roaring.

Question: In Obi-Wan's home, he explains that Luke's father wanted Luke to have his lightsaber when he was old enough. But in "Revenge of the Sith", in Anakin's (Vader's) last fight with Obi-wan, Anakin's legs and right arm were severed and his saber was lost. So how could he give it to Obi-Wan to give to his unborn son if it was lost and Vader left for dead?

New today Answer: Anakin's Lightsaber was never lost. When Obi-Wan cut Anakin down (when Anakin jumped at him), Anakin's lightsaber falls to the ground next to Obi-Wan and when Obi-Wan leaves, we see him pick it up.

Room Service - S5-E15

Question: When Niles and Lilith wake up in the hotel room, what does Niles mean when he says that this happens every day in Arkansas?

New today Answer: When Frasier and Lilith got married, Lilith became Niles' sister-in-law. Even though they're divorced and she's now his ex-sister-in-law, it was just a joke about the stereotype that in Arkansas, brothers and sisters sleep together. One could also interpret it as in Arkansas, guys sleep with their brother's ex-wives, but that not a stereotype associated with the South.

Question: How much time is it from 12 midnight to the twelfth stroke of midnight? Because in the movie it seemed to go over way longer than 12 seconds.

New today Answer: Clocks vary, but it's not always 1-second per stroke. Some clocks can take up to a minute to fully strike 12.

Question: Spencer wasn't bitten. He died by knifing, but he turned into a walker. I thought you had to be bitten?

New today Answer: It's been established that everyone is infected with the zombie virus, albeit in a dormant state, so that when anyone dies, by whatever means, the virus turns the dead into zombies (walkers). Being bitten or scratched injects live viruses into the system that quickly turns a living person into a zombie, without having to die first.

It's Hard to Say Goodbye If You Won't Leave - S3-E10

Question: In this episode, Frasier is portrayed as being allergic to cats, and cannot be close to Kate's cat. What about the times when he had sex with Kate (at the radio station building, in the elevator in his building, etc.)? As a cat-owner, shouldn't her clothes have set off his allergies before?

New today Answer: Not necessarily. Cat allergies aren't caused by the cat's fur (so if she has cat fur on her clothes, it wouldn't actually bother his allergies). It's the cat's dander (dry skin flakes), saliva, and/or urine that people are allergic to, so if her clothes don't have traces of any of that, he would be fine. For example, she could have clothes at work she changes into, or simply keeps her clothes in a room the cat isn't around.

Question: At the beginning, what caused McQueen's rear tires to burst?

New today Answer: Blown tires are common in NASCAR and usually the result of exactly what McQueen did, run too long, too fast, on old tires. They show him not taking new tires during the yellow caution, and the all the green pit stops, he only took gas. Excess heat from high speed driving can increase a tire's pressure, and with "old" tires, it couldn't handle the stress.

Question: When Joker goes to Vicky's apartment, how did he know where she lived?

New today Answer: She's a semi-famous reporter/photographer. It would be fairly easy (especially for a criminal) to find her home.

Question: What did Palpatine mean when he said 'You have paid the price for your lack of vision'?

New today Answer: He says "you will pay the price..." meaning Luke will die for not seeing that the dark side is more powerful, and choosing not to join him.

Question: I'm curious as to why Will and Elizabeth didn't both stab the heart at the same time. Wouldn't they then be able to captain the Flying Dutchman together and not have to deal with the whole 10 year separation? And if Davy Jones is able to stand ashore in a bucket of seawater for the parley, why couldn't Will Turner do the same once he became captain of The Flying Dutchman?

New today Answer: A ship has only one captain and only one person can be the captain of the Flying Dutchman. Will became that person. Davy Jones may have been able to stand onshore while in a bucket of seawater, but by having left the netherworld for the living one, he'd abandoned his purpose in ferrying souls lost at sea. From then on, he was corrupted and became a monster. Will could not re-enter the living world during that ten-year period, otherwise, the same fate would have befallen him and the crew.

Question: How does Edith know Richie puts little curlers in his hair because his hair is naturally straight?

New this week Answer: Because his hair looks comically unnatural. The only way to achieve the look is to use curlers.

Question: When Simon and Joe are ordered by the police chief to do either community service at Reverend Russell's retreat or face prison, they take the community service option. But eventually, Reverend Russell orders Simon not to come on the retreat. So, why wasn't Simon arrested?

New this week Answer: I think they let Simon go because he was sick at the time.

Question: How does Optimus Prime gets his sword in absence of his trailer in Transformers 3?

New this week Answer: Seeing as this move takes place a few years later it is safe to assume that Optimus Prime either had swords built into him or he just has backup swords.

Question: How did Brittney even know Tobey's phone number, and why would Ian sit his phone right next to them?

New this week Answer: Alvin could have easily known Toby's number and told it to her. Ian just simply put down his phone not even thinking that the chipettes could get at it from inside of the carrier.
