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.


Question: Does anyone know who really sketched the picture of Allison's bridge? I doubt that it was Ally Sheedy, but I could be wrong.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It was said in the movie commentary that the drawing was the work of digital editing.

Question: This is probably a tedious task, but at what scenes were the songs "Rose," "A Life So Changed," "Unable to Stay, Unwilling to Leave," and "The Portrait" (the former three from the Titanic OST and the latter from Back to Titanic OST) played within the film? Most of the music in the film is so similar, it's hard for me to determine which song is which.

Chosen answer: "Rose" was used in the flying seen at the bow of Titanic when Jack and Rose are flying."A life so changed" was used when Rose is in a life boat after Jack dies at the end.Unable to Stay, Unwilling to Leave," was used when Jack gets Rose into a life boat and she looks up at him in slow mode and she jumps back on Titanic. "The Portrait" was used when Jack is drawing Rose.

Question: There are 2 scenes in the movie that I am confused about. Both of them take place BEFORE we find out that Cliff and Cydney are the real killers. The first takes place towards the begining when Cliff and Cydney are pretending to be going to the bathroom behind a tree watching the killers (themselves) on the security camera. The second is when they are in their tent (with Gina in the background gutting the goat). In both scenes, Cliff and Cydney appear to be afraid and very concerned about Gina and Nick being the real killers. In the tent scene, they talk about leaving Nick and Gina behind because they think they're the killers. Why are Cliff and Cydney even talking about this if THEY are the real killers?

Chosen answer: They're not afraid the other couple are the killers, they're afraid they may be recognized on the video and that the other couple might figure out who they really are.

Question: When Jill and Kirby were watching "Shaun of the Dead", and Ghostface calls them, how did he know they were watching that?

Chosen answer: Remember that Jill and Charlie were the killers and were working together. Therefore, Jill probably told Charlie the film they were planning on watching. Meaning when he called Kirby he knew what she and Jill were watching, which makes the killer more sinister and omnipresent.

Question: Bludworth states that he's, "Seen this before" referring to Death's Design. If the bridge incident takes place before Flight 180, and is the first, then how would he have seen it before? And why is the bridge incident not mentioned in the first film if it took place only two weeks earlier?

Chosen answer: To answer your first question, Bludworth does in fact mention he has "seen this before", but this means he could have seen these events before the film series ever took place. It is possible that this is where he had learned a lot about death's design. This could even hint at another sequel/prequel. To answer your second question, none of the survivors had been alive to tell the tale of what happened to the survivors of the bridge collapse. In the first few movies, it is noted that the protagonist freaks out, thus, startling MANY people. In the 5th film, Sam is only seen freaking out inside the bus. Even if the FBI have the information, they could have finished the investigation completely, due to Sam, Molly, and Nathan surviving (Until the end of the movie, that is).


Question: I've got a question about "The Point of no Return" scene. Is Christine just cleverly acting her role or does she mean what she is singing - "these shameless words"? Raoul is suspecting the second and the Phantom is, to some extent deceived, but what about Christine? The question is presumably open to interpretations, but it would be nice to know your opinion.


Chosen answer: I believe that to some extent, Christine truly believes what she is saying to the Phantom. After all, in the sequel "Love Never Dies," it is revealed that she did have an affair and a child with the Phantom. However, I think she also realizes what her life would be like with the Phantom, and that isn't necessarily what she wants, so she chooses to be with Raoul.
