Question: Philadelphia City Hall is a massive building with thick walls. Right after their arguments in the Kendall case Hanks and Washington are seen in the elevator using their cell phones. Cell phones didn't get great reception in 1993 anyway, so would they have worked at all in an elevator inside a massive building?William Lanigan
Question: When McDonald tells Hart "If you wanna stay, stay. But as a private citizen. Turn in your badge and your gun." Did he just fire her? Suspend her? Ask for her gun and badge so that if anything happened, she wouldn't give the FBI a bad name?
Question: 1. Draco, does he know his parents work together with Voldemort? Or what does he know? Does Draco know he is betraying Dumbledore or doesn't he know anything about his future to help Voldemort? 2. When Harry and Sirius are attacked at the lake, a doe / deer showed up that saved both of them, who what it? Some say it's Harry himself from the future while others say it was professor Snape? (If it's Snape then how)?Zoey
Question: When they get back at Motivation Corp at the end, how did Cartman manage to get into the building, along with his Mexican painting crew, and also how did they manage to paint the whole place in crap so quickly before any of the staff came in for the day?Heather Benton
Question: If I am correct, this movie takes place about one year after Luke left Yoda's training in "Empire Strikes Back." Why does Yoda think that he requires no further training? In the prequels and the "Clone Wars" TV show, Jedi apprentices went through several years of difficult situations and trials before finally being named as Knights or Masters.
Question: When Harry first meets Dobby in his bedroom, in Chapter Two, he asks Dobby if the danger at Hogwarts has something to do with Voldemort. Dobby shakes his head no. But it is later revealed that Lucius Malfoy's plot did involve Voldemort after all. Why did Dobby lie to Harry?
Question: We know that the chameleon Eddie Van Blundht can manipulate his unique extra layer of muscles to mimic male faces and physiques, thus hijacking their identities. However, Eddie can't mimic clothing, so he must hastily seek new clothing to go with each new identity. But when Eddie is on the run from Mulder and Scully, he abruptly mimics Fox Mulder and is seen wearing exactly the same tailored suit and tie that Fox Mulder is wearing on the same day. In fact, they even cross paths in the hospital while they are wearing identical tailored suits and ties. Question: where and when could Eddie possibly acquire an exact tailored suit and tie to match Fox Mulder's on such short notice?Charles Austin Miller
Question: When Darth Maul is revealed after the door opens in the final battle at Naboo, Qui-Gon says "we'll handle this", to which Padme replies back "we'll take the long way", and leaves with her royal guards. Why couldn't they just stay and help Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan, and just all fire at Darth Maul, killing him? This also seems to occur in Episode III, just before the droid army on Utapau fire at Obi-Wan, Grevious stops them and says "I'll deal with this Jedi side myself." Even in Episode VI, before Vader goes to fight Obi-Wan one last time, he could've just called in a squad of troopers to come help him, but decides to go do it alone. Why is it that throughout the course of the trilogy, Jedi and Sith always decide to fight their opponents alone, when they could just have an automatic kill with their backup?
Question: What reason would Enrique have to lie on the stand? Obviously he wasn't really interested in Brooke in a romantic way. Is it possible he was paid off by Chutney or her mother? And wouldn't he have been in committing perjury after Emmett caught him off guard and made him basically admit that he was gay?
Question: I don't know if there is a definite answer to these two questions, but I would appreciate any guesses. 1. Why did Voldemort try to honor Snape's request to spare Lily's life? He gave her three chances to stand aside and let him kill Harry. But if she had actually taken the chance to live, Snape would have pursued her (Dumbledore later asked Snape "[James and Harry.] can die, so you can get what you want?"). Why would Voldemort try to help Snape get into a relationship with a Muggle-born woman? 2. On a similar note, why did Snape think that he had any chance of being with Lily - if she lived - after his master killed her husband and son?
Question: This question is more about the comic, but I didn't know where else to ask. At the end of vol. VII, "V" is stealing some sort of file about Valerie Page, what's the meaning of that? what did he needed it for? Also, right after that, the man in the entrance of the building holds the door open for him to escape. Is it because he knew about "V" and agreed whit his ideals, or is there another explanation?
