Question: What does ISD stand for in Baltimore police? It is mentioned by major Colvin to Carv after police officers correctly guess that somebody (Carv) has moved the dead body (Internal affairs is called IID during the show). It is mentioned again in Season 4 episode 8, when Herc worries about how to get back an expensive camera that Carv helped borrow to that ISD department.
Question: At the start of the film, Danny is given is given the paper and told he has to hand it in the next morning. At the end, Danny is at school ready to hand it in. Does that mean that aside from the black-and-white flashback scenes, the movie took place over 24 hours? It's hard to believe so much happened in such a short amount of time.raph
Question: How is the woman at the beginning of the movie Meg Giry, as is stated in several answers here? They call her Madame Giry, if it were Meg they would call her Mademoiselle Giry, unless she was married, in which case she would be Madame with whatever surname she received upon marriage. So wouldn't it need to be Meg's mother, Madame Giry?Sarahjonesyy
Question: In the beginning of the film, the audience sees the Moulin Rogue in its original role as a bordello/nightclub. It's hugely successful, too - it's full of patrons literally throwing money at the dancers. Why does Zidler want to stop all of this in favour of making it a theatre? And if he's dead set on this, why not do it using the revenue he's already got, instead of entering into a deal with a Duke who is jealous and possessive beyond belief (with a personal assassin, no less) and giving him the property's deeds?
Question: How did anyone find the cameras and the films? Surely if anyone else had gone into the woods, the same would have happened to them. So can anyone please explain?
Question: How could the conspirators possibly imagine that their plot would work? Their confidence that none of over 400 passengers might happen at some point to fix on Kyle and her daughter, perhaps even have a whole conversation with them, either at the gate or on the plane, seems unwarranted. They had to have been awfully sure that no one would notice them boarding at the call for passengers with small children. They had to assume that once the plane had leveled off that the girl wouldn't spend half an hour traipsing tirelessly up and down the aisle dragging her bear along and saying hi to everyone. And then there's the coffin. When Kyle did open the coffin, it made no sense that she did! So how in the blazing sun would the plotters have expected that she would do that at some point?
