Question: When you look at the front of the house, the 2nd story is to the left of the front door. The stairs and the bedrooms are on the right. Also, there has to be a very high cathedral ceiling to account for the stairs which isn't shown in the front of the house photo. Does anyone know what the house looks like where the show was filmed?

Chosen answer: There are a number of photos online of the Brady house's exterior of what it looked like when the show was being filmed and what it looks like today. Only the exterior shots were of a real house. The interior was a studio set and it did not exactly match the real home's floor plan. There are also some YouTube virtual tours of the house that explore the interior. If you Google "Brady Bunch House" you will find much information about this.

Question: Towards the end when the briefcase has been recovered and Hobbs asks what the reward should be, Dom replies "1327." What do these numbers refer to? Shaw's former hideout? Or an amnesty law code or something?

mediaNemesis

Chosen answer: It's the house number of Dom's old house in Los Angeles, from the first film. Hobbs says "name your price", so I guess Dom was asking him to buy his old house back (the gang are having a BBQ there in the next scene).

Question: Chavez calls Billy "Chevato". What does this mean?

Chosen answer: Chevato is a Mexican name meaning "Goat" or Little Lamb. A young goat is called a kid, hence Billy The Kid was called Chevato.

Movieman123

Chosen answer: Bonzo goes to Bitburg - The Ramones.

Question: How did the ancient predator see the mark on Lex's face when predators can only see in infrared?

Chosen answer: It is possible with their infrared vision which shows body heat that the burn from the blood was in fact hotter, which allowed it to be seen more visibly to the commander.

Question: Why do they have rifles and equipment wrapped up in plastic before they actually fight?

Chosen answer: The bags were meant to keep sand out of the actions and magazines as long as possible before they needed to be used in combat.

tylerasktaylorsteckleralexdenny

Chosen answer: It's the Main Title music, composed, as was the rest of the score, by Elmer Bernstein.

Question: What's the music heard as Butch and his girlfriend ride away, just before "The Bonnie Situation" begins, since the track is not on the film's soundtrack?

Chosen answer: The music playing as they ride away is the intro to "Out Of Limits" by The Marketts, from 1962.

Question: IMDb lists one of the Child's Play movies as a reference or has been spoofed in Scary Movie 2. What is the reference?

Chosen answer: There is no Child's Play reference in this movie, the closest one was the living clown doll, which is a spoof of "Poltergeist"

Question: What is this connection that Guinan and Picard have that goes "deeper than friendship or family"? I just don't understand where it has come from. Am I missing something?

tattoojunkie

Chosen answer: If you recall the episode with the traveller, who takes the Enterprise out of their galaxy to one neighbouring Triangulum, we are introduced to the concept that time and space are not the "separate things they appear to be" (see season 1 episode "where no one has gone before"). This theme runs rampant throughout the series, and novels. In particular, we learn of the El Aurian's sensitivity to shifts in the space time continuum: remember the movie with the Nexus? Anywho, Picard and Guinan are intertwined lifeforms in multiple realities and timelines. In a later season, he goes back in earth time to rescue Data, and ends up saving Guinan's life: she is uniquely aware of this in her past, and knows who he is before he knows that would save her life in the future. Also, because Picard travelled back in time to be the hero, his younger self fresh out of the academy on his first captain's assignment on the starship Stargazer comes into contact with Guinans in a novel from the Stargazer series that ties up even more lose ends; after her world was destroyed, her depression so deep, created a Guinan we would be hard pressed to recognize: but she recognizes Picard as a young man in trouble with the planet's law enforcement and comes to his aid. There are other links as well, but rest assured that their connection is one that does not hold description in any language we understand: it's one that is part of the fabric of the universe, of which they share a kind of common thread. Picard is also uniquely linked to Q, but that is another thread!

Rooftop - S3-E4

Question: In this episode, they try to take the suspect's DNA but he says he's a Jehovah's witness so they don't take it. Why can't you take DNA from a Jehovah's witness?

Chosen answer: It was a misconception about Jehovah's Witnesses beliefs. Only blood transfusions are discouraged in their beliefs, medically.

Question: In a flashback scene, we see Carlisle about to transform the then-dying Edward to a vampire. Shortly before Carlisle bites, he whispers something to Edward's ear. What could he have told him?

Allister Cooper, 2011

Chosen answer: He says "I'm sorry" - found out by looking at backstage videos and things like that.

Answer: Carlisle says "I'm sorry"to Edward because Carlisle knows how painful is to be a vampire and how hard it is to control the thirst of blood.

Question: In the final shot, we see Jill's head move a little. Was that suppose to let the viewers know that she's alive or was it just a mistake?

Chosen answer: I personally submitted this as a revealing mistake. There is no official statement from Wes Craven or anyone else involved in the making of the movie about it being deliberate. So in my eyes, it's a mistake.

THGhost

Question: How does the former boss of Liam Neeson (Dr. Martin Harris) find the private detective the latter is using for help? He calls him and just shows up.

AnthonyA

Chosen answer: He calls him because Liam Neeson told him to, because he still remembered him.

AnthonyA

Question: Can someone please help? When the killer shows up at Rhyme's place at the end, he explains to him why he did it and how Rhyme did him wrong, but no matter how many times I watch it, I don't understand what exactly happened and how Rhyme was to blame for it?

Heather Benton Premium member

Chosen answer: The killer used to be a forensic scientist for law enforcement (where or when is never stated). Rhymes testified in court that evidence had been falsified, leading to wrongful prosecutions, the killer was sent to prison for this, where "every day I was brutalised". The killer blamed Rhymes for this, so set out to prove he was better by giving him a series of clues that he (in theory) couldn't solve. It should also be pointed out that Rhymes never met the killer or knew what he looked like.

Question: I don't understand the scene in the casino. She screams and the roulette ball hits her number. What happened here?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: In the casino scene, Lola breaks the "rules" several times. She doesn't have enough money for a 100 mark chip, she defies the dress code, and the scream is a manifestation of her willpower overriding the laws of chance and probability itself to make the ball land on the number 20 twice in a row.

Question: What 'group' is Annabelle in?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: She wasn't in one of the groups (Geeks, Emos, First Years, Posh Totties and Chavs), she was an outsider. The girls later give her a makeover as each one of the cliques, but she ended up as herself and said she "felt like a St Trinian".

Question: During the film one of the officers was holding a bottle of Becks beer. Was the label on the bottle age/era appropriate?

Chosen answer: I compared a clip of the scene to a vintage postcard from 1940 which had a photo of a bottle of Beck's, and it looks completely accurate in the film as far as I can see regarding the label, foil on the neck and bottle shape of the 1940s.
