Lisa the Vegetarian - S7-E5

New this month
Homer: Marge, since I'm not talking to Lisa, could you please ask her to pass me the syrup?
Marge: Please pass your father the syrup, Lisa.
Lisa: Bart, tell Dad I'll only pass the syrup if it won't be used on any meat product.
Bart: You dunkin' your sausage in that syrup Homeboy?
Homer: Marge, tell Bart I just want to drink a nice glass of syrup like I do every morning.
Marge: Tell him yourself, you're ignoring Lisa, not Bart.
Homer: Bart, thank your mother for pointing that out.
Marge: Homer, you're not not talking to me, and secondly I heard what you said.
Homer: Lisa, tell your mother to get off my case.
Bart: Uh, Dad, Lisa's the one you're not talking to.
Homer: Bart, go to your room!
Lisa: Why don't you just eat him, Dad?
Homer: I don't need any serving suggestions from you, you barbecue-wrecking know-nothing know-it-all.

New this month Question: It's stated a couple times in the movie that Arnie could die at any moment. Pardon my ignorance, but why exactly is this? Is there something about his condition that makes him highly susceptible to dropping dead, or is it a matter of his behavioral impulses (such as climbing the water tower) that put him at a high risk of dying in an accident?

Serious B

New this month Chosen answer: It's because of his often reckless behavior; it's never implied within the film that his unique condition has anything to do the likelihood that he could "go at any time."

New this month Question: Have the filmmakers offered any explanation as to why they used CGI for Wolverine's claws in the bathroom scene? As has been pointed out numerous times, the CGI is very poor. Given that the previous three X-Men films used practical claws that looked just fine, this seemed like a very impractical thing to do, especially considering the extra time and money going with CGI would require.

Justice League (2017)

Question: The last shot in "Batman v Superman" showed the soil on top of Superman's casket beginning to levitate, inferring that Superman was still alive and on the verge of bursting out of his grave. Why then, in this movie, do the other heroes have to exhume his body and use the Motherbox to bring him back to life if the former movie made it clear he wasn't actually dead?

Serious B

Chosen answer: It's sort-of a crappy answer, but the truth is... like many sequels, this movie simply ret-cons and "forgets" the last few seconds of the previous film. This happens more often than you'd think. The filmmakers decided that rather than go with the notion that Superman might still be alive as implied by the ending of BvS, they'd instead add in a sequence where he's brought back to life in this one. I'm sure if you really stretched, you could also say that the dirt rising was a hint that he might be able to be brought back or wasn't beyond being saved, and that some of his power still existed somewhere.
