Victory of the Daleks - S5-E3

Question: When they are talking about the Daleks at the end of this episode, this is what they are saying: DOCTOR: It's not that. There's something else. Something we've forgotten. Or rather you have. AMY: Me? DOCTOR: You didn't know them, Amy. You'd never seen them before. And you should have done. You should. (They go inside the Tardis and it dematerialises, revealing a glowing w shaped crack in the wall.) My question is: What is the Doctor meaning by what he is saying to Amy?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: The Doctor is referring to the events of the two-part finale of the fourth series of the relaunched show, "The Stolen Earth" and "Journey's End". These episodes featured a major Dalek invasion of Earth, something that Amy should remember. What concerns the Doctor, leading to the conversation you refer to, is that she apparently doesn't, because if she did, she'd have recognised the Daleks the moment she saw them.

Question: What is the name of the airport that is featured during the ending scene in which Carl is following Frank and tells him "Nobody's chasing you" ? Or at least, what airport is it supposed to be?

DialingForDollarhyde

Chosen answer: It is not mentioned, though it is likely Reagan (at the time Washington National) or Dulles, as they both work in Washington DC.

Question: Is Ramin Karimloo (in the grey suit and bowler hat, without his Phantom make up) sitting to our right of Carlotta during the rehearsal for Don Juan Triumphant?

01:39:40

shorty

Chosen answer: Although that would be funny, I rather doubt that's Ramin Karimloo. From the DVD's special features he revealed that it takes an hour to transform him into the Phantom. Since this was filmed live on stage, it would be very impractical to have him take the makeup off halfway through the musical.

Question: How many times does the luggage fall off the station wagon throughout this trip?

[email protected]

Chosen answer: Five times. The first time is when the Griswald's leave the house because the luggage hit the garage roof (00:09:05). The second time is going into the motel. The third time is about half way through the movie where two bags fall off the station wagon (00:49:00). The fourth time is when the station wagon flies off the closed road where every single bag falls off due to the crash (00:50:35). The fifth time is in the scene where Aunt Edna dies and Clark stops the car immediately where all but one bag falls off (01:02:30).

Question: After turning into a werewolf, what is it Lupin mutters as Hermione is walking over to him? It's very difficult to understand, but it sounds like words. Not just whining. (I don't know if it is in the theatrical version. I am noticing it on the DVD copy).

01:40:25

Chosen answer: He's not saying anything, it's just unintelligible whimpering. It gives the impression that Hermione is able to communicate with him, but once Lupin has transformed into a werewolf, he has no human consciousness.

Question: Why would Alan test an electric fence by grabbing it with both hands? That's like clicking a gun at your head to see if it's loaded. Couldn't he have tried kicking it or maybe tapping it with his hand?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Alan already knew the electricity wasn't turned on when he grabbed it. He first tested the fence by throwing a stick at it and nothing happened. He could also see that the warning lights on the fence post were off. He only touched the fence cables to play a joke on the two kids, to lighten the mood a little.

Answer: The stick testing the fence would not work because wood does not conduct electricity.

Question: I don't really understand how Voldemort dies. The scene shows Harry and Voldemort fighting with the two spells - Expelliarmus and Avada Kedavra - and the spells collide. Then Harry disarms Voldemort and catches the wand, and then Voldemort just dies. Can anyone tell me why he dies?

Chosen answer: It's a little complicated. Voldemort actually died by his own hand, though unintentionally. Voldemort believed he commanded the Elder Wand and cast the Avada Kedavra curse at Harry with it. However, Harry was actually the Elder Wand's master. Because wands are somewhat sentient, the Elder Wand recognized Harry as his master, so the killing curse rebounded off him, and went back to Voldemort, striking him dead. All of Voldemort's Horcruxes had been destroyed, so he was no longer protected by them. At the same time, Harry cast the Expelliarmus charm, causing the Elder Wand to be ejected from Voldemort's hand into his.

Chosen answer: LMFAO - Sexy and I Know It.

Question: Is the clown at the anniversary party part of Fix-It Felix Jr. the video game or another video game? Or is he just a member of Fix-It Felix Jr. who is never seen by the players but works in the apartment?

01:48:00

Chosen answer: On Disney Wiki, it shows all the cameos of video game characters but doesn't show the clown. So we can cross out the other video games. The clown is never seen on the roof when Ralph is thrown off it. So we are not sure if he is part of Fix-It Felix, Jr. Since we are not told, it's most likely he works at the apartment but just doesn't go on the roof when Ralph is thrown off it.

Question: I have a few questions, regarding Scarecrow. The first, a simple question, but I'm curious: what effects were used for Scarecrow's voice, when the audience hears it from the perspective of one poisoned by his hallucinogen? And was it still Cillian Murphy doing the talking? While we're at it, why is it Crane seems almost eager to confront Batman when he says "He's here", "we'll soon find out", etc at Arkham Asylum, after gassing Rachel? He didn't seem nearly as frightened as Rachel or Falcone when he was subject to his fear toxin by Batman either. Lastly, what did he mean when he began to say "I'm here to help" to Rachel, before she used her taser?

01:14:55 - 01:50:40

Chosen answer: I'll answer these individually 1. What effects were used for Scarecrow's voice, when the audience hears it from the perspective of one poisoned by his hallucinogen? I'm not sure but it sounds like they distorted the pitch and speed of the vocals several times, layered them together, and added an echo effect. There is probably more to it than that. 2.And was it still Cillian Murphy doing the talking? Yes. There is one moment where it fades from Cillian Murphy's regular voice to the 'fear' voice where it is fairly clear that they are altering his vocals and not using another voice actor 3. While we're at it, why is it Crane seems almost eager to confront Batman when he says "He's here", "we'll soon find out", etc at Arkham Asylum, after gassing Rachel? He didn't seem nearly as frightened as Rachel or Falcone when he was subject to his fear toxin by Batman either.] I think these are both symptoms of his fascination with the concept of fear. He is fascinated with The Batman, who uses fear and symbolism as a weapon. He is also terrified of Batman but that terror excites him. This terror/excitement is most likely why he seems to be having a lesser reaction to the toxin. He is terrified yet elated because he is seeing this terror up close, and this time the terror wins out. 4. Lastly, what did he mean when he began to say "I'm here to help" to Rachel, before she used her taser?] He frequently uses his position as a psychoanalyst to comfort people into trusting him. He attempts this on Rachel but she does not fall for it.

Question: What is the hotel used in dream level two?

Question: I have noticed more than one female character (Asajj Ventress and, later in the show, Ahsoka Tano) wearing pieces of cloth on their belts that hang between their legs. I have seen this on females in other shows/movies/games as well. Does it serve some purpose or is it simply decorative?

Chosen answer: This is a compromise between flirty and modest showing skin on the side of the leg, while hiding the crotch/rear area. This style exists only in fiction because in real life, the cloth would get in the way and it would be easier to either wear shorts, remove the cloth, or both.

Britney's New Look - S12-E2

Question: What is the name of that suspense song everyone keeps singing?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: It is based on the song 'Ave Santani', the song used in the movie "The Omen" (the lyrics of which are in Latin) The lyrics to their chant are "Hetus. Alte omnibus. Virtu e poquebus. Rectus. Hoc honebus." Which is Latin, Spanish and gibberish. "Omnibus" is Spanish for "bus", while "poquebus" and "honebus" are both Latin-sounding nonsense words. It loosely translates to "Glad. Other bus. [Poquebus] of courage. Correct. This [honebus]".

Question: On the side of the Sugar Rush game cabinet, Vanellope is depicted in a white racer suit. How come she is never seen in that very suit when racing inside the game, even after the game is reset to its normal mode?

01:48:00

Chosen answer: For the same reason as noted in a correction: "Cabinet art (and box art for home versions) often does not match what actually appears in the game. For example, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989) for NES' box art showed an image from the comic book, with all four turtles wearing red masks, but the game itself was based on the cartoon series where each turtle had a different colored mask."

Question: Why has American Dad! gotten so violent ever since the fifth season? I mean they had a bit of violence in the first four seasons, but now ever since season five and so on nearly every single episode is full of all different types of violence.

Casual Person

Chosen answer: It is just the decision of the creators to do so.
