The Elements of Harmony (2) - S1-E2

Question: When Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy are floating with Twilight, Nightmare Moon, (In the form of smoke) floats right in Twilight's face, though she never notices it. Why is that?

Chosen answer: The smoke floats a few feet away from Twilight and close to the camera so you might think that the smoke is right in her face.

Lily Harrison

Question: SPOILER: It's shown in the movie that Hiro was sad about Tadashi's death for few weeks, and Abagail (Pr. Callahan's daughter) was lost in the second dimension before the fire in the science fair, so how is Abagail still alive after all that time?

Chosen answer: Baymax said that 'the patient' was put into 'hyper sleep' which is almost like a coma.

Question: Why did he ask Murphy through binary to ask him to stay in the past? What good would he do if he stayed on earth? Murphy wouldn't be able to crack the solution of the fifth dimension if it wasn't for future Cooper's Morse code on the watch.

Chosen answer: As an emotional being, Cooper reacts to getting away from his daughter, which at the point he believes is for the last time. In that moment, Cooper is of the view that Plan A could never have worked. That coupled with the fact that his only motive to get on the Endurance mission was to somehow bring Plan A to fruition, is the reason he is emotionally compelled to ask her daughter to ask him to stay. Rational reason works but an emotionally charged moment trumps it all the time.

Question: How exactly is the artificial gravity created on the Endurance? If it is due to the centripetal force created by the rotation, then isn't the gravitational force supposed to make them stand normal to the edge of the circle, considering the outward direction of the centripetal force?

Chosen answer: Firstly, it's not centripetal that's pointed outwards, it's centrifugal. Secondly, what you say is precisely what happens aboard the endurance. The crew having docked ranger, moves to the ring module (the outer circle). Cooper initiates the rotation of the ring module and as such the centrifugal force pushes them outward onto the relative floor of their module. Most of the scenes that we witness are crew based in the ring module, and not aboard any of ranger or lander.

Question: Why didn't Charles make any attempt to rescue Wolverine at the end? With Cerebro's help he wouldn't have had any trouble finding him.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Who's to say he didn't later attempt to find him? Wolverine was flung quite a distance away from where Charles was and he didn't have Cerebro with him to immediately locate him.

Question: When the crew gets struck by the gigantic wave on the Miller's planet, CASE is shown to be able to morph into a wheel-like form, and rescue Amelia. If CASE is actually that fast, and that "versatile" to hold things while running, why can't he actually just move around the surface, and survey the wreckage of Miller's ship. That would have saved a lot of time, wouldn't it?

Chosen answer: The robots are very helpful in this movie, yes, but the movie also makes a point that exploration is done by humans and not by the robotic helpers. Compare this to the docking scene, where the robots initially thought that the maneuver was impossible. Relying on the robots might actually hamper the exploration.

Question: Near the end while Mike is in the car talking to Chrissie, why does the cell phone on the console show a call from Claire if Claire is not conspiring with Mike and is ignorant of his deception?

Chosen answer: It wasn't his cell. He took Chrissie's cell.

Question: SPOILER ALERT: What exactly happens in the end, does Cooper actually die and the Tesseract and the Cooper station were just parts of his dream? Please let me know if I might have missed something because the explanation that he travels back through the wormhole to Saturn does not make sense to me. He must have been sucked inside the Gargantua and died, surely?

Chosen answer: What actually happens in a black hole is not fully understood and mostly theorized by science at this time, so in the context of the movie Cooper could have survived.

Question: When watching M*A*S*H over the air, why does it seem like some/most of the audio sounds like an echo, as if it was coming through a soup can?

smiley1958

Chosen answer: FOX wasn't always so sure M*A*S*H would turn out well. It was years before it achieved such success in syndication. As such, some of the earlier prints and negatives aren't in such great condition.

Question: With Peter being such a coward, why did he actually go and find Voldemort?

Chosen answer: Because he is far more afraid of what would happen to him if Voldemort returned and Peter hadn't assisted in it.

Question: Whose baby pictures and a couple of older kids pictures are on the refrigerator in Doug and Carrie's kitchen? Can't be Deacon and Kelly's of course and there's no one else on the show for nieces and nephews since they took off Carrie's sister! So who are they?

Chosen answer: There's actually an episode of KoQ's where Doug asks Carrie the same thing. As both have no clue themselves. Doug tells Carrie to throw the photos out. Carrie says no, as friends might visit and notice they're taken down. This scene was added into the show, after similar questions from fans. Most likely, the photos are of kids of the writers, producers and/or relatives of the cast.

Answer: Carrie's the one who wanted to throw the pic out but Doug said no. She agreed, reluctantly, so she covered it with a magnet.

A Day in May - S8-E23

Question: Beyond the obvious (he hasn't gotten over it or is still upset about it) is there a reason Martin didn't want to say anything at the parole hearing? And what was the point of showing this?

Chosen answer: While he hasn't gotten over it, he also took into account what the shooter's mother said. He refused to make a statement either for or against him. He can't forgive the shooter, but he's gotten past the anger.

Question: Were the sharks in this movie animated? It shows the whole shark without showing a machine controlling it.

Chosen answer: Yes, when the sharks were shown swimming in the water they were computer-generated. Where they interacted with the actors or other parts of the environment, animatronic sharks were used.

Question: In the end credits it lists the Batman theme in the music soundtrack. When exactly was the theme played in the movie?

Question: In this show and in the 90's movies, the Turtles absolutely love pizza. Though this was not hit on in the 00's show. Was their love of pizza created for the 80's show, or did they have that in the original comics as well?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: The Turtles' pizza obsession was not in the original comics, which were far more adult in the violence and language they contained. Peter Laird, one of the comic's creators was critical of this aspect on his blog in 2012, saying if he had control over the 80s cartoon's creative direction, the Turtles "would not have been so ridiculously obsessed with pizza".

Question: How could Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver leave the White House that night with no secret service protection, go out and eat a sandwich and drive back to the White House in Dave's friend's car?

Betsy Tomlinson

Chosen answer: Dave and the First Lady snuck out of the White House via a secret underground route which Dave, inexplicably, knew about but the First Lady didn't. The passage led them from inside the White House to an outside location, nearby where Duane of Dave's secret service detail had left a car for them to use. It's still implausible that they could circumvent the remaining Secret Service in making their sojourn, but that is the disbelief that we, the audience, are asked to suspend for the sake of advancing the plot. Upon returning, the couple drive up to the entry gate, where the guard, seeing whom he believes to be the President and First Lady, lets them return to the house. Their only explanation?"The President wanted some ice cream." The MORE implausible question would be how the guard simply trusts that two look-alikes driving up to the White House unattended in a non-government car with a lame excuse would simply let the two pass without consulting the secret service, who should have informed him of the President's comings and goings?

Michael Albert

Question: If Russell was with Mr. Fredrickson for at least 3 days, why are neither of his parents looking for him, or at least getting worried?

Chosen answer: We, the movie audience, are never privy to Russel's parents and their reactions to circumstances which transpire. For all we know, an extensive hunt for Russell could have been initiated by his parents off screen.

Michael Albert

Question: When Patrick talks to Carnes, he confesses that he murdered Paul Owen. Why doesn't Carnes believe him, and how could Carnes have had dinner with Paul?

Chosen answer: There are two possible answers. First, Carnes doesn't recognize Christian Bale as Bateman, instead thinking he is someone named Davis. He insults Bateman and thinks "Davis" left the message as a joke. Realize also that someone claims to have seen Owen/Allen in London, but mistook Herbert Ainsworth for him. Second, Bateman is delusional and only thinks he killed Owen/Allen, who is in fact alive and in London.
