Question: Towards the end of the film, Dr. Evil kills number 2 yet number 2 is alive in the next two films. Why? I've been told there's an alternative ending on the DVD that changes this. Is that true?

Answer: Number 2 doesn't get killed. It is obvious from the attempt to kill Mustapha that the fire/chair thing is faulty, this is demonstrated in the second film by the fact that number 2 has a large burn scar on his face to show that he wasn't killed, just burned.

Question: What is the steamrollered henchman's name?

Answer: His name was never mentioned; he's simply listed as "Henchman Flattened by Steamroller" in Michael McDonald's (the actor who played him) entry on IMDb, who was uncredited. McDonald also appeared as a NATO soldier in"The Spy Who Shagged Me" as well as a royal guard in "Goldmember."

Question: Being a huge fan of the Back to the Future movies, there has been something in this movie I've always wondered about. In this Austin Powers movie, Frau says that Scott is a test tube baby. However, The Spy Who Shagged Me reveals otherwise, and that Scott isn't a test tube baby. Can we assume that in the first movie, Frau knows that Scott isn't a test tube baby, and that she is lying so that Dr. Evil can continue the timeline unchanged? Or was Scott actually a test tube baby in the first movie, and in the second movie the timeline is changed so that he isn't a test tube baby? Hope I worded this right.

Answer: Frau was lying. Of course she would know that Scott wasn't a test tube baby: she carried him to term and delivered him! She kept this from Dr. Evil because she knew he would have no recollection of fathering Scott since he hadn't done it yet. That's a lot of pressure to put on a guy.

Question: So what exactly happens to Alotta Fagina at the end of the movie? She's knocked out cold by Vanessa and then the self-destruct sequence kicks in, giving her only 30 seconds to escape (fat chance, since she's knocked out). Do I go with the alternate ending, and if so, how did she survive?

Answer: You can't go by the alternate ending. We can assume Ms. Fagina died.

Question: Was Vanessa a fembot all along? Or did they get a robot that looked like her?

Answer: There is one theory that is that Vanessa is converted or replaced before we see her being brought into the room by Alotta Fagina.

Answer: Supposedly, Austin never met the real Vanessa. She'd been replaced by a fembot before we were ever introduced to the character. "Vanessa" obviously exists within the film, else her mother wouldn't know who'd called her.

Question: In the bathtub sex scene with Alotta Fagina and Austin, why does Fagina kick her leg up into the air when Austin strips?

Answer: Cuz it's sexy. She's showing off her assets for him!

Question: I don't understand the scene with Austin and the fembots, how are the fembots exploding?

Answer: They have been programmed to kill Austin. But he is so sexy that he is turning them against their programming. So they blow up as their computerised brains cannot take it.

Revealing mistake: When Austin enters the bathroom at the casino, keep your eyes on the door during the scene - it opens by itself before closing. (00:31:10)

Frau Farbissina: Remember when we froze your semen? You said that if it looked like you weren't coming back we should try to make you a son so that a part of you could live forever?
Dr. Evil: Oh, sure.
Frau Farbissina: Well, after a couple of years, we got a little impatient. Dr. Evil, I want you to meet your son.
