Question: After the second challenge, Harry is upset about coming in last. Hermione says "Next to last, Fleur never made it past the gryndylows." She says 'the gryndylows" in a French accent like Fleur's. Why?

Chosen answer: She was mocking Fleur, who was considered snobby and unpopular with Hogwarts students.

Question: What did Venom mean when he told Spider-Man "never wound, but you can't kill"?

Chosen answer: He actually says "Never wound what you can't kill." Basically he means "You can't beat me, so don't even try."

Question: In Mr Sir's office when he gives a drink to the guard, is it Coca-Cola because it looks like it. If not, can someone tell me what it is?

Macca

Chosen answer: It appears to be in fact a Coca-Cola bottle, it has been turned in an attempt to not show the logo.

LukeS

Question: Is there really any need for Silva to be captured and then escape to kill M? He knows when she's in court, he could just travel to London without going through being captured and escape, and considering it makes him completely unexpected, gives him more of a chance of succeeding.

Chosen answer: Silva's objective was not just to kill M - if it was, he could have blown up her office with her in it when he hacked into MI6 the first time. He wanted to humiliate and terrify her by showing he could get to her again and again, whatever measures were put in place to protect her.

Jewpacabra - S16-E4

Question: At the end of the episode, is Cartman really serious about converting to Judaism and understanding how Jews feel or is he just lying like he usually does?

Chosen answer: I would assume he is lying, Cartman seems to continue his Jewish prejudice in the episode following.

LukeS

Question: How does Kevin manage to keep quiet the events of the first Home Alone movie involving Harry and Marv without anyone else in the family knowing, especially the parents? I imagine that Kevin would've had to take time off from school to testify against Harry and Marv in courts. And even if the trial took place during the summer months, I would think Kevin's parents would have had to consent, or at least have knowledge, to their son testifying in court against the two burglars.

jmmoosey2015

Chosen answer: Remember that Kevin didn't give his name, nor did the police ever see him. When he called, it was from a different address and he gave his name as "Murphy." There is no reason to think that Harry and Marv would tell the police about Kevin, since they would have to admit being outsmarted by a child and also admit to kidnapping, assault, battery, and a wide array of charges for what they tried to do to him. Even if he did testify, there is no reason to think his parents wouldn't know.

Greg Dwyer

Question: I have searched every where to find the answer to 2 questions with no luck. First being at the end, where is the house that Brian and Mia are living at? The second is how does Dom know Neves? When Dom goes to her house to get the necklace back it implies that they know each other but she hasn't been in any other F and F films and in addition Dom says later in the film "running ain't freedom you should know that."

Brandon Smith

Chosen answer: 1. Brian and Mia are just in "a" house that they bought in a non-extradition country, probably with the proceeds of the heist. 2. They have both lost the people they loved, something they have in common. Plus, people like a happy ending.

Friso94

Question: Who was the baby in Charlotte's arms in the closing scene? Why was the baby not alluded to previously?

Chosen answer: At the end of the film, it is implied that Charlotte and Benjamin Martin have married and had a child together. It wasn't alluded to earlier because it is meant to show that a person's life can start over, even after tragedy and loss.

Question: Crowe thinks his wife resents him for putting his work before her. But since nobody but Cole can see him, what work does he have?

raph

Chosen answer: Child psychologist - or so he thinks. Remember that Bruce Willis' character doesn't comprehend that he is actually dead, and certainly doesn't grasp the fact that Cole is the only person who can see him. Dr. Crowe's perception is that life goes on as does his professional role as a therapist for children. When he is around his wife, he misinterprets her melancholia and somber expressions as evidence that she resents his priority on his work, and that she is behaving coldly towards him as a result. In fact, she is in mourning for Malcolm, her dead husband - something he doesn't realize until the film's end.

Michael Albert

Question: How come the conductor and the hero girl walk on the roof of the train headed towards the front when they could have walked through it, the way they did coming back with the hero boy?

Chosen answer: Cinematically, it made for more excitement. Walking to and from the engine through the train is, let's face it, boring.

Question: Why does Glen look like a zombie, if Chucky and Tiffany are normal?

Chosen answer: Have you ever SEEN demon doll DNA? It's creepy! Not at all like your 'normal' DNA. Now, if you have a Barbie and Ken doll having a kid, you'd get something nice like a P.J. Doll. You mix evil, twisted, Chucky with psychopathic Tiffany and all bets are off, baby-wise. I'm surprised that Glen turned out as well as he did! And with a Cockney accent?

Question: How is it possible that some of Evan's gaps, being his blackouts, are filled in with stuff that already happened in his life before he knew about his ability (standing with knife, drawing 2 dead man, talking to his father), and other gaps are filled with completely new stuff that changes the moment and the consequence. So: Evan has some gaps filled in, in the past, with things that still have to happen, but also some gaps are 'just' filled in with actions that never had place in the first place? It is all a bit of a mess for me, but I hope someone understand my question.

Chosen answer: Evan's blackout gaps are just that. Gaps. Not only hereditary (his dad had it, remember?), they occur at random intervals and random events in his life as part of his life. Later, he has the option of filling in those gaps with his NEW experiences and thereby changing his future. He is in control; changing his future by choosing the time & place.

Question: Why did Kane want to abduct Carol Anne so badly and what would he have been able to do if he succeeded?

Chosen answer: He is in the first movie and is referred to as "The Beast." In this movie he is in his human form and he want Carol-Anne because he believes that she can lead him and his people into the light and crossover from this world to a better place.

The Yoko Factor (1) - S4-E20

Question: At the last moment before leaving for good, Angel pauses to tell Buffy "I don't like him" [Riley], to which she replies with a large smile "Thank you." Why does she take this comment surprisingly well? From an ex boyfriend to her new boyfriend? It's not like it sounds like a friendly warning of any sort, nor a joke given the tense situation between the two guys in the episode. And the smile on Buffy's face does not make her response look ironic either, more like loving/caring. Is that a cross over reference to another dialogue in the Angel series?

AnthonyA

Chosen answer: Angel is saying that he is still jealous and Buffy recognizes that this is his way of saying he wishes that they could be together. That is why they both smile.

Question: What exactly did the ghosts want with Carol Anne?

Chosen answer: They were attracted to her life force. She was such a young child, that it was particularly strong within her.

Dr. C and the Women - S13-E13

Question: Where's the joke in prescribing a "lesbian shoe" (Doc Martin) to sick people? Not angered by it or anything. It's just that I understand most every joke and am wondering if this one even has a point or if it's just one of the absurd jokes?

jlubera3773

Chosen answer: The doctor's name is Doc Martens, and it's playing on a stereotype that lesbians wear Doc Martens boots.

Jump, Push, Fall - S4-E2

Question: In season 3 Peter could only absorb one power at a time and only when he touches the person. How could he suddenly go back to being the empath who automatically absorbs the power of people around him in season 4?

Chosen answer: There must have been some confusion in what you saw (or you caught an error). After "Dual" (s03e13) until the end of the series, Peter's altered abilities always required him to touch someone to gain their powers, he was never able to absorb the power without physical contact and never had more than 1 power at a time (although later he gains the ability to touch someone and not absorb their power).

Bishop73

Question: Right before the fight between Preston and DuPont, DuPont re-quotes Sean Bean "you tread on my dreams." How did he know that quote, and why did he know it would mean anything to Preston?

Chosen answer: Since Preston is the one who discovered Partridge's sense-offense and executed him, he was probably required to give a report of how it went down and mentioned Partridge's last words, which one would expect would make its way to DuPont.

Season 7 generally

Question: How do Jesse and Sam intend to continue as P.Is, when their faces were broadcast over the state news? Undercover/stealth work is torpedoed by that.

dizzyd

Chosen answer: They could wear disguises to hide their appearance.

Question: Is there any significance to Justine looking almost the same - wearing a jacket over jeans, with her hair tied back - for much of the movie?

Chosen answer: I would say her similar clothing style represents that although she wanted her life to change, it never did, and she ultimately remained stuck in her never-ending routine, always looking the same, never moving forward in a new direction.
