Sam: OK, remember when Paul McCartney wrote the song "Michelle" and then he only wrote the first part, Annie said.

And Annie said that it wouldn't have been the same song without that... and that's why the whole world cried when the Beatles broke up on April 10, 1970.

Question: Can 7-year old children be put under oath? (01:06:10)

NancyFelix

Chosen answer: Yes, but I don't think it is possible for a child to understand the consequences behind the oath.

Question: Who is the mentally handicapped guy with thick glasses who says, "I think she's very beautiful."? He only appears in one scene and doesn't seem to contribute anything else to the movie.

Chosen answer: He's just another "member" of their video night group, and the character probably wasn't needed for the whole movie.
