Answer: Several reasons. Dobby was once owned by the Malfoy family until Harry freed him, which Bellatrix would consider a betrayal. She knows Harry is close to Dobby and killing Dobby will hurt Harry. Dobby, as an elf, is magically powerful and is a strong ally to Harry's cause. Having once been owned by the Malfoy family, Dobby has much inner knowledge about them and Voldemort. She was also making one last strike before Harry and the others escaped.

Suggested correction: I just loaded up the scene. All four of them are definitely there during the cage match. There's even several shots where you can see all four at the same time.

TedStixon

Well I guess. It's just one seemed to be gone at one point during the cage match. Thank you.

Rob245

One of them was standing apart from the others. But all four are definitely there during the match, and like I said, all four are visible in the same shot several times.

Monk (2002)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It wasn't really stupidity on her count. She knew her former partner was showing the house to some potential buyers and would have been unaware the woman was a cosmetic salesperson. Additionally the odds the woman would even be able to identify that type of lipstick in such a quick and frightening situation was a million to one so it wasn't likely a major factor when she plotted the murder. Even if it was never pointed out, Monk connected a number of other factors to her. The former partner was leaving their firm, she had a gun similar to one the shooter used and the witness said the figure of the shooter was a woman. The lipstick was just a small factor in the entire case.

Batman Returns (1992)

Answer: Not intentionally, the rockets were aimed at the abandoned arctic zoo structure, not at the Penguin himself. He was caught in the crossfire.

Frasier (1993)

Answer: The cheating occurred during "Cheers." Not much was discussed about the reason, but she cheated on him with a colleague of hers, Dr. Pascal (whom she also went to live with in an underground eco-pod). Working closely with someone, especially if the two have similar likes, ideology, etc, can result in romantic feelings being developed. With the burden of marriage and a child, she may have given into her urges. She does obviously feel bad because she asks Frasier to forgive her and take her back. There was also a running gag on "Cheers" that Lilith had a strong libido that she had to work hard to suppress, which may have been a factor if true.

Trivia: This was almost one long movie along with parts 2 and 4, but director Albert Pyun thought that was a terrible idea.

I Love Lucy (1951)

First Stop - S4-E14

Question: Why did they go by car to California? I assume it was to get several episodes out of it though wouldn't it have been easier to go by train?

Rob245

Answer: Well, within the storyline of the show, the answer to your question is given in the prior episode, "Getting Ready," where we see Lucy reading various brochures while Ricky is on the phone trying to book their tickets. The decision went from going by plane, to train, to bus, and finally to the idea of going by car so they could stop where they want for as long as they want, etc. Of course, production wise, this decision allowed for the following episode scripts to have more creative shenanigans.

Answer: There is no explanation, but as you mentioned, it was likely to add some new adventures to the show's overall story line.

Superman II (1980)

Question: 1. Did Luthor kill Miss Tessmacher after going to the North Pole? 2. How do Clark and Lois get back from the North Pole without freezing to death? 3. Why does he go back to that diner since Superman should be above petty revenge? 4. If the villains have Superman's powers then how could Ursa be affected by the snake bite? She shows irritation from being bitten.

Rob245

Answer: 1. No. 2. It's unclear, but can assume Clark had that part planned. 3. Agreed, this is out of character, but Clark isn't perfect. 4. Exactly, she shows irritation. There's no indication the bite actually hurt her or broke her skin. But as someone who is only now realizing the extent of her powers, she reacted as though she thought it might have.

Monk (2002)

Answer: Given Monk's state of mental health and that Monk's been able to continue to function as well as he does, pretty effective. Therapy isn't about "fixing" someone, it's often about helping the person be able to accept themselves. Some people need regular therapy as part of their life. Even a regular person who doesn't get into all the antics Monk does can be in therapy for decades. A few years ago, TV host Billy Bush revealed he had been seeing the same therapist for 30 years.

Bishop73

Answer: Imagine how much worse Monk would be *without* regularly seeing a good therapist.
