Question: I realize how much the wedding ring must have meant to Mae Braddock, but I don't see why she would not have pawned it, rather than send her children away or become sicker because they could not pay for the heat?

Chosen answer: In that case, you apparently don't realise how much the ring means to her.

Question: I know it wouldn't make for a very dramatic ending, but is there no way to get from the centre field seats where Lindsay was in Fenway to Ben's seats along the first line? I mean, couldn't she have just ran along a main concourse?

Chosen answer: At the stadiums that I've been to there are ushers posted at the top of the stairs that lead to seats closer to the field. You can't get down there without showing a ticket for that section. They also show her trying to get to that section and being told she can't go in that gate. Also, she sees through the binoculars that Ben is about to sell his tickets and she wants to create a diversion.

Question: In the scene where Will Ferrell is talking to his wife he says "They were running around like whirling derbishes, and I don't even know what that is" or something to that effect. What is a derbish and why does it whirl?

Chosen answer: An actual dervish (not derbish) is a member of any of various Muslim ascetic orders, some of which perform whirling dances and vigorous chanting as acts of ecstatic devotion (hence the term "whirling dervish"), though in general 'a whirling dervish' is used for anyone who moves with an unfocused, almost frenzied energy.
