Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit

Question: What did Sister Mary Patrick mean when she said "you don't have to bite the donut to know it's sweet"? I believe this was in the scene when she was teaching her class when Deloris was looking for hers.

Answer: Sister Mary Patrick is being challenged by Sondra, one of her students, who says, "you can't answer any questions about... Sex." The sister's reply is, "oh, don't be so sure - you don't have to bite the donut to know it's sweet." She offers this as an analogy, in order to posit that one doesn't have to have engaged in sex acts to know what sex is all about, or that it may be enjoyable even when it isn't necessarily good for you.

Question: Why does Mary Robert still wear a different habit? Although a few years have passed, shouldn't she have already become a full nun?

Answer: That entirely depends on her own feelings. If she did not feel ready to take full vows, she would remain a novice for as long as she wanted.

Question: When Deloris asks the class where their music books are, and they point to the ceiling, what is on the ceiling, and why do they point to the ceiling in the first place?

Answer: Because they have torn all the pages out and used them as spit balls and stuck them to the ceiling.

Question: What does Whoopi mean at the end when saying she is a 'headliner'?

Craig Bryant

Chosen answer: A headliner is someone who receives top billing for a show or concert. She is the main attraction, and probably has a lesser known band/act perform before her, or "open for her".

Audio problem: In the scene where Tyler is preventing Whoopi Goldberg from sitting down by asking her stupid questions, there is a part where Frankie says, "Oh you're gonna get jumped after school Tyler." When the word "Oh" is heard, his lips aren't moving.
