Scream

Question: During the phone call scene in the beginning: when the killer asks Casey the first movie question, threatening to kill Steve, why does she unplug a cord?

Answer: When she unplugs the cord, the light goes out in the area where she is hiding. Perhaps, in her panic, it is a quick way to feel like she's better hiding from the killer. Of course, in reality, she's backing herself, literally, into a dark corner. But she probably isn't thinking rationally.

Answer: It's harder to spot someone in the dark and the TV was letting out light.

Question: When Casey's parents are coming up the front walkway, they talk about how great the plants look. Then Casey's mother says, "I said you could send it back." What is she talking about?

Answer: When they were talking about the flowers, Casey's dad said they had a strong smell. He probably complained about the smell (or something else) when they bought/planted them and she's just reminding him she told him they could take the flowers back to wherever they bought them from.

Question: I was reading one of the first transcripts of Scream on the internet and at the end of the movie just before Sidney kills Billy, she says something along the lines of "and this, Billy Studbucket, is for having an incredibly small weenie." Does anyone know why this was cut out of the final film?

Answer: I have read the original scripts and that line isn't in them, so don't know what you read, must have been fake.

Answer: Who knows. Almost every movie made has gone through a myriad of script rewrites before ending up with the finished movie and changes are made on all levels of production; from the initial scriptwriting, to on the set changes, to changes made in post production.

Question: Stu asks Randy, "What are you saying, that I killed her?", referring to Casey. Randy says, "It would certainly improve your high school Q." What is a "high school Q"? (I Googled this but did not find an answer).

Answer: I don't know if the letter "Q" was used or if you just heard what sounded like "Q", but "Queue" - pronounced like "Q" - is British for "line." People can be said to stand in queue [line], meaning in a row. Where one falls on the queue, in this case, would indicate his/her ranking in terms of popularity.

Answer: He means his status, Stu is considered the outcast. The school weirdo.

Question: After Sidney and Billy have sex, is her questioning him implying that she still thinks he's done it? Because I thought he's already convinced her that he is not the killer. Why would she have sex with someone she believes to be the killer?

Answer: She simply thought of a detail/new question - who did Billy call while in jail? - after they already had sex.

Answer: Love makes people do stupid things maybe?

Trivia: When Sidney and Tatum are talking on the porch, Sidney says, "...If I'm wrong, that means the killer may still be out there..." Tatum replies, "Don't go there, Sid. You're starting to sound like some Wes Carpenter flick." This is an inside joke about "Scream" director Wes Craven. He often jokes about how people always confuse him with "Halloween" director John Carpenter. (00:54:10)
