Question: What is the pink thing Danny is holding in his right hand in the dance scene at the end of the movie? He and Sandy jump into the scene singing and the next time you see them, they are in the car flying off. Is it a pink slip?

Chosen answer: When Danny first shows up at the carnival it shows Sonny, Putzie, and Doody at a raffle "Win the Car of your Dreams" and when Danny and Sandy pop into the scene later he is holding the winning ticket (the pink thing) for the car which they appear in after.

Question: When Harry "dies" and talks to Dumbledore, why does Harry say that Snape is still alive?

Chosen answer: What Harry actually says is "... And the snake's still alive."

Question: What ever happened to the female villain in the end?

Chosen answer: We don't see what happens to Angel Dust after Colossus carries her (and Negasonic Teenage Warhead) away from the collapsing Helicarrier. Both women were unconscious and we can only assume that Colossus put Angel Dust down somewhere before returning to Deadpool for the end scenes. Her fate beyond that - perhaps escape, incarceration or even recruitment - is unknown.

Question: I know this isn't very important to the movie but when Magneto says Charles always wanted to build bridges was he making fun of Charles or making a reference to how he's moving the bridge.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: A little bit of both. Although he wasn't really making fun of Charles, but pointing out that Charles only talked about doing something (building bridges in a figurative way) while Magneto was actually doing something to accomplish his goals, by literally moving the bridge.

raph

Question: When the lady knocks on the door and says "House keeping" which causes some monster wind thing, If you look on the right side of the screen, what's inside the room?

Cloude2

Chosen answer: It's not known what it is. It is left to the audience's imagination of what exactly is in the room or what some witch or wizard was doing in there. This is only meant to be a humorous bit and is unrelated to the plot. It didn't happen in the book.

Question: What is the song playing when Napoleon is riding the horse up to the wedding? It is a symphony playing with French horns and strings predominantly.

Chosen answer: Forever young.

Question: After Alex translates the hieroglyphs as "This way to Scorpion King," Jonathan quietly responds by saying "It's just my work." What exactly did he mean by that? He's not a translator of ancient Egyptian like his sister Evie, so I don't think he literally meant "work" as his profession.

Serious B

Chosen answer: He says, "this just might work" meaning he and Alex trying to bring Evie back using the book of the dead.

Question: What was the girl in the well trying to do with the bone and the bucket?

Chosen answer: She was trying to attract the dog with the bone, then pull it into the pit with the bucket (and she succeeded).

Brian Katcher

Question: Two things in this make me think they have some meaning behind them. At the cemetery, after the memorial for Billy's mom. Costigan is standing by the grave when everyone's gone already and looks up to the flowers sent by Costello. The note signed by Costello has been shot twice (it switched to Costigan in between). And if you look closely the signature and the picture of Mary changes, as if it would be two completely different notes. And I have no idea why Scorsese would do that. The second shot that bothers me takes place in Sullivan's apartment, while Colin is unpacking Madelyn's boxes. Right before he picks out Madelyn's graduate certificate there's a very short clip where television showing a woman's hand reaching for a phone is filmed. What's that?

Chosen answer: While I love this film (and anything Scorsese touches for that matter), there are many continuity issues throughout the whole movie. It's easy to think that there is meaning behind every shot in a film, but sometimes it is simply sloppy continuity (which doesn't necessarily reflect on Scorsese). Jack Nicholson's scenes in particular seem to always have glaring continuity issues - this probably has something to do with his acting style. At the end of the day, the movie rocks. And that's all that really matters.

Question: Why did Jay look like she was going to swim out to the boys on the boat to have sex with them if it turned out she never did?

Chosen answer: The scene was meant to show that Jay was seriously considering having sex with a stranger and passing the curse on, as she was told to do. At the last minute she changed her mind, presumably due to guilt.

Question: Who is the man in the military uniform who is going to introduce Wonder Woman to the president? I also noticed him in the end while the Justice League is being presented to the people, where Wonder Woman and Superman are talking and the man in the military uniform walks away as if he were jealous or just bothered about something. Is he suppose to be a very well known character?

Nayla628411

Chosen answer: He's Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman's liaison. In the comics and some other shows he's the primary love interest of Wonder Woman.

Question: Why didn't Stacker Pentecost yell at or punish Chuck for being a jerk to his adopted daughter Mako?

Chosen answer: Mostly because he's trying to maintain a professional distance between him and Mako. That aside, it's not unlikely that he can trust Herc to take care of that, and it really were Raleigh and Mako that needed yelling at first.

Friso94

Question: How are Jaeger pilots grounded by Stacker Pentecost? They're not children and he is not their father.

Chosen answer: Because he is their commanding officer and he makes a strategical call: he thinks Raleigh and Mako are unfit for combat. As for the whole 'grounding', that is a phrase that most likely stems from the Air Force. If a pilot is punished by not letting him fly, he is grounded.

Question: Why did Del say Mr Jingles is going to make him rich when he gets out? Does he understand the concept of death row?

raph

Chosen answer: Del (like every other prisoner on death row) was hoping for a last-minute pardon from the Governor or some sort of stay of execution from a court. The chance of that was slim to none, but they can always hope.

Question: Why did Paul run outside when he had a urinary tract infection instead of to the toilet?

raph

Chosen answer: He WAS heading for the toilet. He and his wife had an outhouse instead of an indoor bathroom.

Question: Was it John's intention to get Wild Bill killed when he made Percy lose his mind?

raph

Chosen answer: It would appear so. He even says "I punished those bad men."

Jason Hoffman

Question: When the guards are talking to Percy in the restraint room, Paul says he knows he sabotaged Del's execution. Why did he let him get away with it?

raph

Chosen answer: Percy's aunt is married to the state Governor, giving Percy powerful connections. All it would take is one phone call from Percy and Paul and the other guards could lose their jobs and if Percy wanted to, never find jobs again. Something Paul or his friends didn't want to happen.

Halloween - The Final Chapter - S8-E5

Question: Who is in the picture at the end of this episode? Roseanne is holding a baby, and there is a blonde guy in the picture. It's right after the dedication to Jerry Garcia, the 3 of them are wearing tie died shirts.

Chosen answer: That was Roseanne and her then real-life husband, Ben Thomas, with their baby son. Barr's pregnancy during Season 8 was written into the show.

Question: Can someone please explain the scene where Bond says something is "As bad as listening to The Beatles without earmuffs?" Were The Beatles unpopular in 1964, or is Bond just a snob?

raph

Chosen answer: The Beatles were wildly popular with the youngsters of the time and not so with the older generation, of which Bond is part. Obviously, Bond's comment shows the Beatles were not to everyone's taste in music, especially his. And it was a good line for comic relief.
