Scream

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?

Question: How come everyone including Randy had their jackets on and appeared to be leaving the party and yet Randy was the only one left at the party at the end, before the bloodbath?

Answer: The answer to this spawns another goof itself. Randy said he'd stay behind to check on Billy and Sydney, which is why he didn't leave. However, the goof is that he didn't actually go upstairs to check at any time, because he'd either have seen them having sex, or else found Billy's body. Of course, another explanation is that we're made to think that Randy must be the killer, because he's the only one who stayed behind. We just don't know.....

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: What is that thing the killers (and Sydney) used for the Ghostface voice, and where can I get one of those?

Answer: You have to hire Roger Jackson. It's not like they used in this movie an actual voice changer.

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: 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.

Audio problem: When Sidney comes running to the house and she sees Dewey come out with the knife in his back she screams "Dewey!" but her mouth says "no!" (01:27:23)

Trivia: A scene near the end required Skeet Ulrich to throw a phone receiver in frustration, and he wound up accidentally hitting Matthew Lillard in the back of the head with it, prompting Lillard to yell at him, "You hit me with the phone, dick!" Wes Craven found this so hilarious that he decided to use that take in the film.
