Question: What is the logical reason behind King Candy's decision to delete Vanellope's code? What does he gain from it? From what I understand, he didn't think she'd become a glitch, but what exactly did he have against her and why delete her instead of any other racer?

Chosen answer: As shown later on, Candy was revealed to be Turbo. A racer whose racing game was ruined by another racing game. His jealousy drove him to ruining both his game and the other game. Turbo then wanted to live in a racing game, so chose Sugar Rush. Vanellope was revealed in the end to be the leader of Sugar Rush and King Candy tried to delete her code and re-write his code so he could be leader and take part in all the races. That's why he didn't delete any other racer's code - because getting Vanellope's code deleted would have made him the leader. Candy had nothing against Vanellope, he just wanted to be leader by any means possible.

Question: Why were different actors used for the voices of Judy and Elroy instead of the original actors?

Chosen answer: Daws Butler, the original voice actor for Elroy, died in 1988. Janet Waldo did record a voice track for the feature but was replaced by Tiffany to attract a new audience off her popularity.

MasterOfAll

Question: Why did the Creeper go after only certain students instead of all of them?

Chosen answer: Because the Creeper only went after those with body parts it liked.

Question: The question "How do the girls' husbands, other than Dorothy's, die?" was answered that in theory, Blanche's husband could have had a car wreck, fallen into a coma, and died while she was getting a pedicure. This is not true. Blanche stated that when George came back to her in a dream, she remembered tripping over his shoe on her way to answer the phone, thus finding out that George had died in a car wreck. Doesn't this prove that the "he had a wreck, fell into a coma, and then died during Blanche's pedicure", theory is out?

Countryrunner

Chosen answer: Yes, you are correct, as stated, In one episode Blanche said he had been in a coma for days, in the episode where she's in her dream, she said "The day you died ... The police told me you had been in an accident." Thus the original answers theory is wrong. If he had been in the accident the day he died he could not have been in a coma for days.

Valentine

Question: Why does the demon kill the salvage crew before the boat is even fixed, and why couldn't he fix the boat himself if he already has the ability to move objects?

Chosen answer: Not fixing the boat drew the salvage crew to the boat, where the demon could fill his soul-quota far away from any aid his victims may have sought.

Question: When Selina/Catwoman has Schreck cornered, she says that him, the Penguin and Batman killed her leaving her with only six lives left. I understand that Schreck "killed" her by pushing her out a window and that the Penguin "killed" her when she fell through a greenhouse, but how could Batman have killed her? She landed safely in a truck filled with kitty litter after she got knocked off the roof, so that can't count.

Chosen answer: Apparently it did. Kitty litter isn't exactly soft.

Question: When Engywook explains the Magic Mirror Gate to Falkor, he says that the mirror shows a person their true nature. Brave men are cowards. Kind men are cruel. When Atreyu looks into the Magic Mirror Gate, why does he see Bastion?

Answer: Atreau is the main character of the book (like Bastion is to us watching the movie) this makes them the same, the main protagonist or the "story" It's a 4th wall break inside a 4th wall break. The Empress even tells him "he is sharing all your adventures, others are sharing his."

Chosen answer: Atreyu, as the main character in this story, is the reader's avatar in Fantasia. Atreyu sees Bastion in the mirror because, so long as Bastion is reading the book, he and Atreyu are one and the same.

Question: Why did the huge bat-like creatures kill the man that was in their cage but let Dar live?

Chosen answer: The creatures did not eat Dar because the eagle landed on him, showing him as a friend to the eagle. They apparently worship eagles, as also indicated by the talisman they give him.

Question: What type of gun does the Joker use in the bank robbery?

Chosen answer: It's a Glock 17, converted to fire full auto. None of the close-up shots show the fire selector switch on the left side of the slide which is a unique feature on the Glock 18 (and Glock 18c). This is also consistent with the Joker's anarchic nature - a modification like that would be dangerous to the user if not performed by a professional gunsmith, but the Joker probably wouldn't care.

King-Size Homer - S7-E7

Question: What is the name of that toy bird that Homer "puts in charge"?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: It is called a Drinking Bird.

MasterOfAll

Question: Can somebody out there explain the ending for me? It made no sense. Someone told me they believed the mother and daughter, as well as the cop died in the accident and they were trapped in the town. However I don't buy that as the father and the other police found no bodies in the crash.

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: They did not die in the accident. Rather, Alessa's rage and the demon's power caused the town of Silent Hill to fracture into at least three different "dimensions" that we know of (the real world, "fog world" and "other world", plus potentially others). Rose and Sharon are unfortunately stuck inside of one of those alternative realities. The sequel also confirms that they are very much alive.

Question: What are the infected humans doing when they are huddled up together when Will Smith first finds them in the abandoned building? Are they sleeping? But then how is the deer killed?

Chosen answer: When Sam chased the deer into the bank, Robert was terrified. Yet his love for Sam outweighed those fears and he enters the bank anyway. As he is looking for Sam he encounters the deer lying on the ground (now dead) As he peers around the corner he sees one of the infected feasting on the entrails of the deer. He continues to look for Sam and it is then that he finds a hive of infected "sleeping" within a bank vault.

Question: Where exactly is the funpark where Daniel first takes Ali out on a date (and later makes up with her)? Is it still there?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: The Park is called "Golf 'n' Stuff" (like in the movie) and is located in Norwalk, CA. The slide unfortunately was removed in the early 90s.

Parallels - S7-E11

Question: Whenever I see this episode rerun, they leave out the scene where Picard suddenly appears at Worf's surprise party. This is a somewhat crucial scene, in my opinion, because it is one of the first clues (other than the cake switching flavors) that something isn't quite right. Why is this scene no longer shown? Is it simply due to the desire for more advertising time? Are other episodes cut like this?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: The most common reason rerun TV series are edited is to allow for more advertising time. They can also speed up the show's running time, which is unnoticeable but gives more seconds to be sold to advertisers. Cable TV channels are allowed to have more advertising than network TV channels, and they do whatever they can to increase revenue. It does result in episodes often being choppy and the story line a bit confusing. Now channels are also overlapping the end of one show while showing the start of another one by using a split screen, giving them even more time to sell to advertisers.

Question: How did Klaus end up in the body of a goldfish?

Blunder Bot The Mistake Machine

Chosen answer: The CIA placed Klaus' brain inside a goldfish. The reason the CIA did this was because Klaus was once an Olympic ski-jumper and was supporting East Germany in the 1986 Winter Olympics. The CIA knew Klaus was going to win the gold medal for ski-jump and they did not want this to happen, so the only alternative they could think of was to place Klaus' brain inside the body of a goldfish before he could compete.

Casual Person

Question: Several items thrown into the portal at the abandoned warehouse comes back through another end. How exactly do the items manage to get from the other dimension back through the other end of the portal?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: As seen in the film, the portals are in flux. They are constantly activating and deactivating, potentially pulling items through from one dimension to another.

MasterOfAll

Question: At the end when Steven is the only one left alive alone with Django, he drops his cane and seems to walk fine. Would that indicate that he was faking the whole time, just pretending he needed it?

Chosen answer: Not necessarily; Stephen's condition may be ameliorated by using a cane to walk, but he doesn't always need the cane. I myself have an ankle condition which is sometimes helped by the use of a cane, but I don't always need the cane.

Question: How did the rainbow bridge get rebuilt? Did I miss the explanation somewhere?

Chosen answer: I think the implication was that it was two years since the destruction of the Bifrost bridge, and that appears to have been time enough to rebuild it using the Tesseract, which was brought back by Thor. Jane is the one who gives out the 2 years reference when remonstrating with Thor about disappearing.
