Question: In the "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" scene when Satine dances with Christian. Why doesn't the Duke realise that she went up to someone else entirely and asked them to dance and why didn't he realise that she was dancing with someone else when it was supposed to be him?

Chosen answer: During "Diamond's Are A Girl's Best Friend" Toulouse accidentally bumped into a waiter and spilled a drink on The Duke. The Duke left shortly afterward, so he never was there for Satine to offer a dance or see her dance with Christian.

Question: What kind of animal is that thing that wants to eat the chickens? He is supposedly on the 'good' side (not a coyote).

Chosen answer: The character is named Freddy the ferret.

Question: On the audiotape "Heed my warning: do not proceed" is spoken. But if the officer remained there, how would he get out of this place?

Chosen answer: The police arrive some time after Strahm saves himself from the water box trap. If he had just waited in the room with Jigsaw's body, the police would have eventually found him.

Question: When the scene with the song "Why So Silent" takes place, how long has it been since anyone last saw/heard from the Phantom?

Answer: Actually it says three months, I'm watching it right now.

Answer: It is actually six months. Masquerade is shown as "6 months later, " and the lyrics, if you look at them, say "six months of relief, of delight..."

Chosen answer: As said in Masquerade, "Three months of relief, of delight, of Elysian peace."

Question: Toward the end of the movie, why does Christine kiss the Phantom if she has decided to be with Raoul? Does this mean she had changed her mind to be with the Phantom after all?

Chosen answer: It can be seen in so many different ways. Christine kissed Erik (the phantom) with passion and she even touched the deformed side of his face with tenderness! She truly wanted to kiss him at that moment. In the movie it didn't seem forced. She was probably heartbroken seeing not only Raul being threatened in that way, but Erik being tortured by his own hate and despair. She came towards him wanting not just to release Raul but to release him from his darkness and his feeling of hate and despair for the world and himself, showing that he can be loved, that she does love him and that he can love too, in her heart he is still her angel, she cannot help but do as her heart told her. And in her heart she felt the need to show him that he was not alone and to kiss him. She didn't kiss him because she wanted to stay with him but definitely not just to save Raul, what there was between the phantom and Christine will always be special, that connection... And when the phantom finally realizes that he has been loved in that way, even with his haunted face, her kiss made him more human, he truly realizes how much he loves Christine and so, because he loves her too much he lets her go, not wanting to force her anymore, also knowing that a life with him and his marked sad fate will be torture for her, and he cannot bear to see her unhappy even if that means that he will be unhappy and incomplete forever! Her kindness and love disarmed him and shed warmth to his heart, which was why he let them go and in the end was crying.

Question: Was there any truth to Hammond's comment that none of the rides at Disneyland worked when the park first opened? I just find that a little hard to believe.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Yes. The first opening day of Disneyland in California was catastrophic. The pavement was fresh and the sun was so hot high-heeled shoes actually sunk into the walkways. Counterfeit tickets were made, resulting in more people than the park had room for. They ran out of food and drinks. Bathrooms clogged and shut down. Many of the rides broke down on opening day. The Storybook Land Canal Boats had to be pulled by cast members in rubber boots. At the time, there were no guide rails for Autopia; some of the cars crashed into each other, making them inoperable. A gas leak in Fantasyland lead to the land being temporarily closed for part of the day.

Question: Similar to how the "killer is duplicating Woodsboro" plot point in Scream 2 was left dangling, why exactly did Roman feel it necessary to kill people in the order that they die in "Stab 3"? We know he's out to make "his movie" (he's very theatrical and artistic like Mickey was), but the "movie" he's referring to is his process of orchestrating real-life events to make his half-sister Sidney into a perpetrator, and he into the innocent victim. Sure, he may have been upset about Sidney's public portrayal as a hero in the first two "Stab" movies, but he wasn't out to set the record straight in "Stab 3" (Jennifer was to be the killer in that movie had they continued production). His "movie" was about turning the tables on Sidney in real life, not through some actual film. It's metaphorical: he's a director, and he's manipulating events out of self-pity and revenge. In the end, Roman's revenge fantasy doesn't really have much to do with the actual "Stab 3" movie at all (other than the fact that it happens to be being filmed in the same area Sidney's mother knew and involves some of the same people, so it presented a perfect backdrop for Roman's confrontation with Sidney), so I don't really see the significance of the systematic order of the murders in relation to the film. Did Roman think that the pattern would draw Sidney out of hiding? Wouldn't the photos of her mother (or the fact that the victims were actors in a film concerning her past) have been enough to get her attention? What is the significance of the order? And why was this plot point also left to dangle like in Scream 2? (We don't know if Roman kept following the order because we don't know how the script goes past a certain point).

SteveQ

Chosen answer: In the fax scene, Tom Prinze, the actor playing Stab 3 Dewey, realizes that the killer is literally rewriting the Stab 3 movie, which obsoletes the "script kill order" plot point. This means that Roman is not bothering to kill the actors in the order they die in Stab 3. This is further proven when Roman attempts to kill Gale after Tom's death.

Question: At one point in the film, Gale and Dewey make the observation that the killer is killing people in a duplication of Woodsboro, going so far as to choose victims with the same names. What happened to that plot point? It certainly doesn't explain the order or the selection of the rest of the victims in the movie. Yes, Randy's murder by Mrs. Loomis and its motive was obvious, but what about the others? Were the first 3 murders set up in a tantalizing pattern in order to lure in Gale, Dewey, and Co.? How did Mickey know they'd catch on to that pattern anyways? Why would he abandon it? Mickey's motive was more theatrical than personal, so one would think he'd stick to patterns, details, and general copycatting.

SteveQ

Chosen answer: In the scene before Randy's death, Randy and the gang discussed how the copycat theory didn't explain why the killer attacked Sidney in the fraternity house, as Sidney was not killed in the original murder spree. This may be why the copycat plot point was dropped since the characters believed it led nowhere. Randy's murder by Mrs. Loomis also screwed up the kill order from the original movie, which may have caused Mickey to abandon the copycat plan. Randy's death further convinced Gale and Dewey that the killer wasn't just attempting to duplicate the Woodsboro murders. Regardless of who the first three victims were, the murders would have attracted the attention of the Woodsboro survivors anyways. Mrs. Loomis was the mastermind of the two killers, so it did not seem likely that Mickey knew that the Woodsboro survivors would have caught on to the pattern of the first three murders.

Question: What is the name of the theatrical song in the Faust play, and who is the original composer and symphony?

Chosen answer: Danse macabre by Camille Saint-Saƫns.

Question: SPOILER If, by the end of the movie, the facility was reprogrammed to have all doors unlocked on a power failure - and there was a sudden power failure when Domhnall inserted the card into the computer terminal... Why did he remain locked within? Shouldn't he be set free by the programming change he freed Ava with?

myyysha

Chosen answer: He inserted his own card in Nathans computer. Also, there was no mention of a power failure, only a red glow. This would be a different event than he's programmed the system for.

Question: When Xibalba first gives Joaquin the Medal of Eternal Life, he is disguised as an old man. Yet, at the end of the film, Joaquin returns Xibalba his medal. How did Joaquin know the medal belongs to Xibalba? Is there a statement by a character or some indication that the medal belongs to Xibalba which I missed?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: Well, the Medal of Eternal Life and Xibalba do share colors, so it's likely Joaquin connected the two and knew it belonged to Xibalba. This is what I just think though,.

Question: Two kids were drawing pictures on the steps when Mia goes out with her baby, Leah. Who are the children?

Bunch

Chosen answer: It is believed that they are the child selves of the two Satanists that died earlier in the film.

Answer: We are never told who the children are they are probably just some children who live in the apartment.

Question: What is the title of the black-and-white movie that Mia was watching while knitting on the bed?

Bunch

Chosen answer: It is actually an episode from the show General Hospital.

Question: Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the credits show that Panchito Gomez played young Abraham. I've seen Panchito Gomez in 80's movies such as Tuff Turf and he doesn't resemble at all the actor playing young Abraham. However, he DOES resemble the gentleman in the cowboy hat who stiffs Abraham money for Selena's performance and says "She's just a woman." I always wondered if the credits made a mistake. Anyone know?

Chosen answer: Looking at the credits on IMDB it does show that Panchito Gomez played young Abraham in Selena as well as the role in Tuff Turf. Given that 12 years had passed between the two movies, it's possible that Panchito had gotten older and didn't look like he was when he was 22 compared to mid 30s.

Question: Where is Kate living when she finds the book under the floor board? If it not the Lake House how did it get there?

Chosen answer: In her apartment in Chicago. Because Alex knew her address, he hid it in the floorboard for her to eventually find. He knew how important the book was to her. He didn't want to send it to her in the mail, as she originally requested.

Wasabi Forever - S3-E21

Question: In the end it seems like they were going to end the series, saying bye to Rudy and them leaving, being all upset. Why did they try to end it, then start it back up with a different dojo?

Chosen answer: I think they must've thought Rudy was leaving town for a few years. Either that or they were originally ending the series.

Question: The part where Hank, Bessie, Lee and Charlie were in the living room and Hank gets a chip, why did Lee asked him to put back the chip because she said that "Bessie hasn't offered him the chip yet and he has to wait to be asked" and when Bessie offered him the chip and Hank refuses, why did Lee forced him to get one? I'm so confused.

Chosen answer: Lee is being an overbearing mother with strict rules and Hank is a little mentally unstable (most likely because of Lee's parenting). Hank is just resisting his mother and probably even felt embarrassed and angry. It's a scene meant to show the strained relationship Lee and Hank have.

Bishop73

Question: When did Andy bury the box?

Chosen answer: It's never explicitly stated in the film. All we know is, he buried it after he escaped and before Red found it.

Dra9onBorn117

Question: I never understood what happened to Clayton at the end. Did he, along with some of his men, escape?

Chosen answer: He was hung by the vine. He fell and it went tight and snapped his neck off screen. He is dead.
