Question: What is the point of Raoul keeping his "hand at the level of his eyes" as he descends the stairwell to face the phantom?

MAC

Chosen answer: It keeps him from being caught and strangled by the phantom's 'magical lasso'. See Buquet's explanation in the scene with the ballet chorus girls to see him show how it works.

Question: In the scene where Eve knocks down all the bookcases, the curator comes in and tells her something like "straighten up this *mishaba*" what does "mishaba" mean?

The Simpsons (1989)

Show generally

Question: There is a "scratch" in the upper right corner in a few of the outdoor motion shots throughout the show, a falling black line, maybe going a twelfth of the way through the picture. I have seen this on more then one TV so its not a problem with reception, broadcast, or anything like that. I'm guessing this is something to do with the animation process or something. Does anybody know what this is?

MAC

Chosen answer: I can tell you that the Simpsons, even after 15 years, is still hand drawn and it takes 6 months to make each episode. So its highly unlikely something slipped by them. Its probably the way you are watching it.

Question: In a lot of the episodes there seems to be a slightly curved "scratch" in the upper right of the screen, it always stays in the same spot, stays the same shape and size... what is this?

MAC

Chosen answer: Maybe your TV... or just the channel. It happens sometimes you know.

Question: What is a Briar Patch?

MAC

Chosen answer: A briar patch is basically a thorn bush. For insight as to what Riker meant when he said, "Let's use this briar patch the way Brehr Rabbit did," Take a look at http://www.otmfan.com/html/brertar.htm.

Answer: The reference is from Disney's Song of the South. A group of children listen to a old man's tall tales of a dumb Rabbit and Bear.
