Question: Why doesn't the Baron like the Baroness and keeps trying to get rid of her? I mean, if it wasn't for her and the law, he wouldn't get all the toys the Toy Maker makes, so why does he not like her?

Chosen answer: He feels like she ruins all of his fun. He is kind of like a child and she is like his mother figure more than a husband and wife.

An american girl in paris (part deux) - S6-E20

Question: What is the instrumental piece that's playing somewhere before the end, when Charlotte sees the picture of the child they're about to adopt, the cleaning lady tells Miranda that what she did was "love", and Smith tells Samantha he loves her?


Chosen answer: It's called "Cold Out There" by Jon Hopkins.

Question: Was the storyline with Brenda based on actual or similar events of the real Frank Jr's life, or was it just added to show that Frank could never commit to a relationship while he was on the run, whether he wanted to or not?

Chosen answer: The character of Brenda was based loosely on a stewardess he dated for a short time and who encouraged him to become a lawyer (he told her he went to Harvard Law School). They were never engaged.


The Apartment - S7-E3

Question: If Mrs. Slocombe had squatters in her new flat, why didn't she simply call the police and have them removed?

Chosen answer: That wasn't possible in 1972. Until recently squatting was a civil offence in the UK, not a criminal one, and removing squatters was a complex and time consuming business.

Question: In Rocky V we learn that Rocky can't get licensed because of permanent brain damage. So how is it that, more than 15 years after the events of Rocky V, he is able to get licensed so easily?

Chosen answer: Stallone himself answered this question in an interview. "When Rocky was diagnosed with brain damage he never went for a second opinion and yielded to his wife's wishes to stop. So with the advent of new research techniques into brain damage, Rocky was found to be normal among fighters and he was suffering the results of a severe concussion. By today's standards Rocky Balboa would be given a clean bill of health for fighters.

Question: When Merida is first seen riding her horse, we hear a song. Is that Merida's voice singing, or is that supposed to be a different voice?


Chosen answer: The singer is Julie Fowlis, a Scottish folk singer. Merida is voice-acted by Kelly MacDonald. Because the movie isn't in the same vein as other Disney movies like "Aladdin" or "Pocahontas" with characters singing part of the soundtrack, it would be reasonable to presume they're considered separate entities. The songs here are more to establish the atmosphere than to serve as "voices" for the characters.

Question: Why did Nate Scarborough need x-rays of the guards injuries?

Chosen answer: Simple: to show the other prisoners/players on the team the guards' weakest points on their bodies to attack them. Previous injuries means an advantage.


Question: Just interested, but when the Mystery Men are rescuing Captain Amazing, how did Amazing know the sequence for the release mechanism and where it was if he was unconscious when he was put there?

Heather Benton

Chosen answer: In a previous scene with Casanova, Capt. Amazing and he have done this (capture & escape) a lot! So much so that Capt. Amazing would have been in that situation before enough times to already know the sequence code from previous times being captured (and escaping).


Question: How come there was no blood coming from Kirby's mouth when she was stabbed?

Chosen answer: A person generally spits up blood from internal injuries to the lungs, sometimes the stomach. Kirby was stabbed below both organs.


Season 1 generally

Question: When the housewives first met, what card game did they play?


Chosen answer: Poker. They have been playing that this whole time, once a week with everyone who was invited that lived on the Lane.

Question: At the beginning of the movie, the elderly woman is being looked after in the house. How is this so when her son hasn't bought the house yet?


Chosen answer: The scenes showing her son buying the house later in the movie are flashbacks showing the viewers how they came to live there. The timeline of the movie goes back and forth several times.


Question: What does the Chinese cab driver say when Carter tells him to follow Ricky Tan's limo?

Chosen answer: "Give me money or I won't drive. Pay me, pay me, pay me" and "now you're speaking my language."

Question: How does his father know what their final destination is?

Chosen answer: He read their airline tickets and probably the plan for their final destination is packed together with it.

Show generally

Question: Throughout all the series, whenever the Doctor and his companion/s encounter aliens or planets, the Doctor knows who they are, where they're from etc. I mean I know he's pretty intelligent and knowledgeable, but what I'm wondering is, how does he know everything about every species in all the galaxies, even the ones in the future? Is it something he's learned/gathered throughout his travels?

Heather Benton

Chosen answer: Partially through that, I mean if you've spent hundereds of years, visiting millions of places and times, its not that wierd that you learn a lot, particually if you're one of a race of super geniuses, he's even a genius for his kind. There also the fact his race observe most events over most times, so he probably learned a lot doing that too.

Question: On the rollercoaster, why did Rusty say to the guard that Clark killed Aunt Edna? He had nothing to do with her death.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Rusty was just being an ass. That's his character, him and his dad are usually going at one another. They really play up this relationship in European vacation.

Carl Missouri

Question: Right before the swimsuit portion, Vic puts some "enhancements" in Gracie's bikini top. When she goes out on stage the crowd cheers loudly then Morningside gets mad hits Vic on the side of his head. Does that mean Gracie was the only one who secretly used an enhancement and Morningside knew?

Chosen answer: She smacked him because Gracie looked silly smiling out there. Every time she messed up, she looked worse and she had to be in the top 5.


Question: What is the tagline for the Black to the Hood movie Billboard?

Chosen answer: The tagline goes "He was never on time for his parole officer.... He wasn't on time for his sentencing.... Then one day....he wasn't in the hood at all."

Carl Missouri

Question: Why are the roads that are leading in and out of Silent Hill gone? And at the end of the movie, why does the road reappear when Rose drives out of Silent Hill?

Movie Lover

Chosen answer: The roads symbolise the gateway into Silent Hill's alternate world which was opened because Sharon/Alessa was called to the town. It reappeared because Alessa has the power to do this.

Question: How would Rose have been able to get in and out of her yellow dress that she wears while she and Jack are walking on the deck? I've looked and can't see any where to rationally put an opening for her to get out of the dress?


Chosen answer: It's true Rose is wearing her yellow dress on deck with jack, including when her and Jack are spitting and her mother walks up to her with Molly and the other women. Dinner is announced and Rose and her mother leave to get dressed for dinner. This is when she changes.

Question: Does Christabella still recognizes the disfigured Alessa in the church scene? If so, why does Christabella looked so shocked and scared?

Movie Lover

Chosen answer: Judging by the burned state of Alessa's risen body, it is possible that Christabella realised who it was. It would then make sense that she would be afraid, because it was she who ordered that Alessa be tortured in that awful way. Even if she did not recognise her, the appearance of Alessa's body rising from the floor surrounded by barbed wire is a pretty gruesome image, fear is an understandable reaction.
