This was a moment in a TV show. I saw it in the '90s. A man is in a bedroom. A woman is lying on the bed. I think she is wearing a sweater and jeans. He has killed her or somehow made her unconscious. Two men (or a man and woman?) enter the room. One picks her up. The man who was already in the room says "I love her." The other man says "You don't kill people you love." They leave with her. The "bad guy" doesn't try to stop them. Sorry for not having many details. Thanks for any guesses.

I saw part of a film around 2001, I think Jeff Bridges was in it. A man and his wife are driving through thick snow and a horse and cart approach them in the opposite direction. The car skids and startles the horse, and the horse rears up and kicks through the car window, hitting the wife in the face and killing her. Never been able to forget that scene but I don't remember anything else about the rest.

I remember watching a short film on TV when I was a little girl I was about 7 or 8 years old at the time. I remember these kids are going to be putting on a play and this dark skinned girl imagines herself on stage and being beautiful, but she is disappointed when she learns that they are doing Snow White. She wants to try out for Snow White but the other kids tease her because she is black. I remember the girls name was something like Carol. Can anyone help me?

Is there an archive of any information about location photography from specific movies? 1937's Captains Courageous contains scenes of large fishing schooners speeding downwind, heeled over so far that the edges of their decks are under water. Impossible to simulate. James Stewart's The Spirit of St. Louis has nearly five minutes of period aerial photography of the actual city of St. John's, Newfoundland, Lindbergh's last contact with North America as he headed east. It's a rare visual record.

I remember seeing an action movie, probably from the 90s, and at one point a henchwoman was beating up either the hero or a supporting character, during which she says something like "Oh, did that hurt? Want mommy to kick it better?" Anyone know what movie this is?

I saw an ad on Facebook for a reading app and it had a video clip that was obviously not for the story. I'm trying to find out where it came from. It takes place in a college classroom. A girl is sitting writing something in a book. Then a guy comes in, sits next to her, steals her pen and starts a game of tic-tac-toe in the holes of her fishnet leggings. The guy also has a tattoo across his neck, if that helps.

Trying to remember a movie (possibly a TV movie) I saw parts of as a kid in the 90s. All I can remember is a woman is attacked in her home and loses her memory after the incident, later on she goes to some kind of fair (maybe state fair) and has a panic attack/flashback after seeing a police office on horseback. Any ideas?

What sketch comedy show had a bit I believe titled "American History As told By The British"? I don't remember much except for 2 guys talking and saying,"America is boring".

I remember seeing trailers for a TV show a while back. It was either the very late 90's or the early 2000's. (I'm leaning more towards early-2000's.) I don't remember too much, but it was about a cop who had something wrong with his mind. He was a little unhinged and didn't seem to have any sort-of mental filter... like it he had a thought, he would immediately verbalize it without control. Ex. I swear I could remember a bit in the trailer where he was talking about having a song stuck in his head, and he was like babbling about it to someone in a car. It might have been as a result of an injury or like a mental breakdown or something. If I recall correctly, it was a hard-boiled cop show and I'm pretty sure it was on one of the major networks. Does this ring anyone's bell? (For reference, I'm in the US, so it was most likely an American show).

I remember seeing a haunted-house movie on TV in the early/mid 90's. I don't remember much about it outside of a scene where the family cat is found dead early in the film. (I think it was a black or darker-colored cat, and I seem to remember there's blood on or around it, too, but I'm not 100%.) That's literally all I remember. It may have been a TV movie just from what I recall based on how it looked. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

In the 1970s as a kid, I remember a commercial where kids were pretending to be cars or maybe playing with toy cars, and at the end of the commercial, an announcer said "Remember, a car is NOT a toy" followed by a kid's voice impersonating a siren as the commercial ended. Does anyone remember this and what was the product or advertisement for exactly?

Who does the narrator's voice in, "Caltiki, the Immortal Monster"? Is this the same person who does the voice of Prince Amat in "Alakazam the Great" and the voice over for Pietro in "Black Sabbath"? They sound like the same man.

In what movie or TV series does someone say "TV dinner!" in the end of the intro? Could be something like "bring out your TV dinner!", I really just remember the TV dinner part.

I'm trying to find a TV show or movie where a girl is in a friend group that are all seniors except for one girl, who is a sophomore. That sophomore loses her "virginity" to the f boy or douchebag of the school. The douchebag or the guy keeps spreading rumors about the sophomore girl to the point where the girl is in an emotional mess. The main character, the senior girl, stands up to him asking him why he has to prey on little girls like her friend. She says something like this after, "Is it because of the inferiority complex you have because your father doesn't come to your games?" and then she tells him to grow up in a growling, in rage tone of voice. She then leaves him speechless. The boy was shocked, which is probably why he begins to talk to the main character more and tries to get to know her better. He then starts liking him. The main character also starts liking him learning that he isn't a total douchebag. Then they both fall in love at the end. What's the name of the show?

I once saw a few minutes of this sitcom TV episode. The main characters' neighbor is a man who has two girlfriends - two girlfriends who both know about each other, agree to this relationship, they might have lived with him. I remember a scene where the man was sitting in the hot-tub, with one girlfriend on either side of him. The main character couple might have been visiting and talking with them in the hot-tub. Thank you for any guesses.

I'm trying to find the name of a movie but I only remember this one scene. A guy spins a quarter on a table and it doesn't fall. He covers it with a glass while it's still spinning and then walks away.

Anyone recognize this horror movie/TV show from 1990 or earlier? A surly preteen is walking down a street, when he's accosted by a strange man who says the boy is upset because it's his birthday and his parents forgot. The boy runs off, but obviously the comment hit home. He walks into an abandoned building to find a party with cake and presents all set up for him. He keeps calling for his family to come out, but instead, strange toy robots come clanking out of the darkness. When the boy opens the cake box, there's a severed human head inside which smiles and says 'hi', causing the boy to scream and run off. I was babysitting when I watched this and it was upsetting my charge so I turned it off, and I never got to see the ending, and it always bothered me.

Is there a TV series lately which has a similar poster as that for See featuring Jason Momoa? I remember seeing a similar one.

I'm trying to remember a movie: a boy is with an adult (a wizard?) as they are on a quest somewhere looking for something. The whole time, the boy is trying to get the wizard or warrior is go back to his village to help them win a war that's going on. When he tells the wizard (or warrior) about going back and helping the village, the man always says, "Oh, don't worry, they're fine." Then the scene cuts to the kid's village being attacked by some vicious army. This happens several times in the movie. Any clue?

There was a kids book I read in the 80's. As I recall, the kid was really into baseball but his father wasn't, he was into numbers and might have been an accountant (but that might not even be how it went). The only thing I swear I remember was the father said he knew when baseball's opening day was because it fell on the same day as tax day, April 15th. For the longest time I thought baseball's opening day was always April 15. I also have a feeling the father and son bonded over baseball when the father realised how much numbers and math was involved in the game.
