Question: At the end when Betsy is in the cab, it seems like Travis says hello ages after she got in. So it seems like that scene is imagined. Is it?

raph

Chosen answer: No, it just seems that Travis had no idea what to say to Betsy and after a while, a simple hello is all he could manage.

Question: In the movie Danny McKnight is built up somewhat as being the guy who seems to almost ignore some of his surroundings. Many times he's shown just casually walking around exposed with bullets flying past him. Did he or would anyone in any sort of battle like this actually behave in that way?

andyog88

Chosen answer: In the book it does say how Danny walked around the gunfire in that way.

Question: I was wondering why the man and woman in the last trap didn't use the woman from the bathtub to give the pints of blood? They could have carried her into the room because the door stayed open for about forty seconds.

Michelle Ferris

Chosen answer: Assuming the woman in the bathtub was able to be moved safely the amount of blood gained from her, while still being helpful, would probably not be enough to save the final two survivors from self harm. Without the heart pumping blood you would only get the blood that was in her arm at the moment. You would have to lift her or raise her so gravity would get other blood moving to get enough. Which the final two possibly could have done, but stress of the situation clouded their judgement.

Season 6 generally

Question: How does Chris still have his powers when he travels to the past, but the witches did not when they went to the past?

Chosen answer: With Chris being from the future (and being half-witch, half-whitelighter), he must know about the fact that his aunts can't use their powers in the past. Therefore, he would think to write an advanced spell so that his powers can be used.

THGhost

Answer: It was a different spell, you can see that from episode Chris-crossed, the charmed ones did not drew anything when travelled to their past. It's also explained from the conversation from Phoenix and Chris.

Question: When Dom and Bryan return to Dom's house after the police chase, Vince sees Bryan and asks Dom why he brought the "buster" there. What did Vince mean by calling Bryan a "buster?"

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: Calling him "buster" implies that he was the one that got them all busted. Like being a "narc" or an informant.

Answer: Because Brian busted his car in the race.

Question: Why didn't Gretchen and Karen stay friends? (at the end of the movie it shows Gretchen sitting with a different group of friends) I thought Regina was the only one they didn't really like.

Chosen answer: Gretchen had simply found a new group of friends with the Vietnamese girls; just because she and Karen no longer sat together in the cafeteria didn't mean they were no longer friends at all. As Cady said in her closing narration, the "Plastics" disbanded at the end of the school year because they had all found new things to belong to: Regina was now a star player on the school's lacrosse team, Cady stayed with the "Mathletes", Karen started giving the school weather report, and Gretchen, as mentioned before, hung out with the Vietnamese girls. The four remained on friendly terms, though.

Question: Who were all the skeletons that the Mother sees toward the end of the film? It's never explained. Also, what room was that?

Chosen answer: It was The Gold Room. The skeletons are simply those of past guests: we never learn their identities.

Question: I know it was never really found out, but was Chris Mannix really the new sheriff of Red Rock?

Chosen answer: Yes, I think he is the only person besides John Ruth that didn't lie about anything during the course of the movie. It is somewhat proven after not accepting Daisy's proposal at the end.

Question: The end of the movie shows Scrat and his acorn frozen in and eventually thawed from a block of ice 20,000 years later. How did he come back for the sequels?

Chosen answer: The sequels take place before he was frozen.

MasterOfAll

Question: If Tuco seriously thought that The Man with No Name would shoot him, why did Tuco voluntarily stick his head in the noose? Death is death. Why choose hanging over gunshot?

Charles Austin Miller

Chosen answer: Tuco knew he had a better chance at survival (and the gold) by playing along with Blondie and keeping his balance on the cross, hoping Blondie does not miss the rope when he shoots. This final, deadly game was preferable to being shot outright by Blondie and dying a poor man.

Question: When Travis first entered the porn theater, why was it blurred? Was that Martin Scorcese blurring the picture to avoid an NC-17 rating, or was the porn movie supposed to be blurry?

raph

Chosen answer: It could be for several reasons. As you pointed out, it could be to avoid an NC-17 rating, though Scorcese could easily have used scenes that were not specifically pornographic. It may also be to keep the audience's attention focused on Travis and what was is going on in the scene and not be distracted by any pornographic material. Also, if you are referring to when the movie was being aired on TV, then any pornographic materials would have been blurred out to comply with FCC standards. Nudity and pornography cannot be shown on general TV stations.

Question: I'm just wondering from the way how Hermione says she has non magic parents, is she ashamed of her parents?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She was not ashamed of her parents. Because she was raised a Muggle, she was never exposed to the magical world. She feels awkward and out-of-place and at a disadvantage compared to those who were born into magical families. Hermione does not like feeling inferior to others.

Question: What was the reason for adding the "bubble" on top of the Rover?

David George

Chosen answer: No reason is given in the film. But the books make mention that he has to have room for the oxygenator, water reclaimer and atmospheric regulator. All of which only work in pressurized areas.

MasterOfAll

Question: Did Kate Winslet wear a wig in Titanic?

Chosen answer: No she colored her hair.

Question: Who played Al Dutcher? He was the bank robber in the clown mask who was killed in the first few minutes.

Chosen answer: The Internet Movie Database lists actor-stuntman Fred Scheiwiller as the cast member who played Al Dutcher. Scheiwiller had a fairly impressive filmography as a supporting actor before his death in 2001. http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0069865/fullcredits/cast.

Charles Austin Miller

Question: When Jason shows Nicky the picture of Nathan Daniels and Ward Abbott she says she doesn't know who Ward Abbott is, but I could have sworn they had a scene together in the Bourne Supremacy. Is she lying?

Chosen answer: The man in the picture was Albert Hirsch, not Ward Abbott, and he was never seen in The Bourne Supremacy. She is not lying and she does not know who he is.

Casual Person

Question: If the characters are younger versions of the original crew, why does the picture young Mr. Spock views when he is told that ambassador Spock has died include all of the original crew members? Who are they supposed to be?

Chosen answer: Those are the personal effects of the old/original Spock. He lived a full life with the original Enterprise crew, as documented in the TV shows and movies, then came back in time to the new/altered timeline.

Question: A few questions regarding the pigeon lady. 1. Other than being heartbroken from so many people, is more revealed about how she became homeless? 2. In the room where Kevin and the pigeon lady are watching the orchestra, how did they get in? Does she live there? Did she break in?

Chosen answer: I think that she couldn't handle her divorce and then lost her job and home because of it. And she kind of lost the will to live and now just survives. Odds are a back stairwell or fire escape.

Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls - S6-E3

Question: What kind of ghoul did Buckle's wife say was on the car?

Chosen answer: She says "facacta" ghoul. It's a Yiddish word meaning ridiculous. It's not a type of ghoul, just her being annoyed at Buckle.
