Question: Is it ever explained why Seinfeld and Newman dislike each other?

Chosen answer: No, it is not. Most Seinfeldians believe Newman is simply jealous of Jerry's success, and doesn't feel Jerry is worthy of it.

Question: In this movie, we meet Griff, Biff's grandson, but in the previous movie, Biff didn't seem to be any kind of relationship, so where did Griff come from? Is there any sort of explanation to Griff's parentage?

Heather Benton Premium member

Chosen answer: It was never really mentioned in any of the movies whether he is in a relationship with someone. Biff could have very well been, it's just never shown because he is at the McFly house in most of his on-screen time.

Question: Does anyone know why Gabriel murdered Dracula 400 years ago? Why would the right hand of God kill a human?

Chosen answer: In Van Helsing: The video game, the backstory goes like this. Dracula and Van Helsing were both friends and knights of the Holy Order dedicated to eradicating evil. They only had to follow two rules. One. The Order did not exist. Two. They had to live a life of celibacy. Dracula, however, fell in love with a young woman. When the Order found out, they decided to banish the young woman from the city. A struggle occurred and the woman was killed. Turning on the Order, Dracula recovered her body and chose to use dark magic to bring her back to life. Van Helsing was sent to stop the ritual. Though he succeeded, a fight between Dracula and Van Helsing ensued and Van Helsing was left with no choice but to kill his former comrade. As Dracula lay dying he made a deal with the devil for eternal life. Van Helsing, wracked by guilt for what he had done, prayed to God to have the pain and suffering of what he did taken away. To spare him the torment, God answered his prayer and removed his memories.

Eggheads - S1-E7

Question: What is the specific legal reason why "Nikke" and "Weeties" had to be misspelled, yet the spelling and logo for The Gap is unaltered?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It's just like any product placement in TV or film; the Gap probably granted permission as well as paid for their logo to be featured whereas Nike and Wheaties (General Mills) did not.

Question: Can someone verify the number of gunshots fired by Esther at the end of the film? I thought I counted 7 and I assume a revolver has only 6 bullets in the cylinder.

Chosen answer: The scene when Esther takes 4 bullets out of the gun and asks Max if she wants to play shows that the gun has a 5 bullet capacity. Esther fired 1 bullet at Kate's shoulder, 1 at a glass when Kate was on top of the glass roof and 3 other bullets at Max. At the end of the movie Max fires an extra bullet.

Question: Why is the place they find Grif called "The Factory"?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: It was what Andy Warhol called his studio. Musician John Cale explained: "It wasn't called the Factory for nothing. It was where the assembly line for the silkscreens happened. While one person was making a silkscreen, somebody else would be filming a screen test. Every day something new."

Question: At the start of the New Orleans show, the Horsemen say the would like to dedicate to show to Dylan and Alma. The audience then start to boo. Anyone know why? Extended version. (00:53:55)

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Because they're cops and the audience hates the police.

Phixius Premium member

Answer: I see this as a mistake. Unless the other respondent is right, the audience would have no apparent reason to know that Dylan and Alma are after them until the Horsemen say they do.

Question: It was K that recruited J to the MIB. But Boris goes back in time and kills K, creating an alternate time line. Yet in that time line, J is still part of MIB. So who recruited him in the alternate time line?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: As mentioned in the corrections section, anyone could have handed him that business card, it's never mentioned.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Question: Does the beginning of the pilot episode take place on our earth? Or is it left for us to wonder?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It's never said, so the implication is that yes, the one our crew starts from is our Earth.

Question: Is there a process of how King Kandy transforms into a cy-bug once he is eaten?

Chosen answer: Calhoun states that the cy-bugs turn into whatever they eat as it shows them gaining weapons and changing to candy colored when eating some candy. So when the cy-bug ate King Candy he basically became a mutant version of one.

Question: Merida points out that the berries Elinor (as a bear) eats are poisonous. I'm sure she meant to say that those berries are poisonous to humans, but are they also poisonous to bears? If not, then did Merida just not know that? (01:33:00)

Chosen answer: The most probable answer is that Merida wouldn't know about a bear's metabolism and what might be fatal to one when berries she knows to be poisonous to humans gets ingested. And although I doubt she wondered if those berries would have been poisonous to a bear, given the fact that she is a sharp girl I assume that if the thought had crossed her mind, in the case of her mother she would choose caution.

Question: What's the Van Halen song Marty plays to his dad when he tells George he's Darth Vader?

Chosen answer: The song is called "Out the Window," not much longer than what you hear in BTTF. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmc6f2kCyLU.

Question: At the end of the movie, when they find out when Marek died, why does Kate say "...or 1971"?

Chosen answer: Kate is actually saying, "Born 1971."

Question: At the end of this movie the main guy is lobotomised and put back into the Cube. Is this supposed to be the start of the original Cube movie? Because the dialogue is very similar (about liking the blue room), but it is not exact and his name is changed.

Simpsonholic

Chosen answer: Yes, it is implied that Kazaan and Wynn are the same person. The scenes are nearly identical except for the way Wynn is shown, as in, we don't see him fall from the room above as we did with Kazaan. But, yes, they are essentially the same scene.

Question: Was the whole point of Lyle's flight to Tahiti making a brief layover in North Haverbrook so the citizens there could get their revenge on Lyle? (00:18:30)

Casual Person

Chosen answer: No. Lyle's flight having a layover in North Haverbrook was a happy accident for its citizens. It is unknown why the plane had a layover, except it suiting the plot.

MasterOfAll

Question: After Monsters, Inc. has switched over to "laugh power", the scare floor has a very different look. There's a board in the back with "JOKE OF THE DAY" written on it. Can anyone see the text of the joke?

Chosen answer: The Doctor says to the patient, "What seems to be the problem?" The patient lifts his arm and says "It hurts when I do this." The Doctor says "don't do that."

Question: What does the woman ask her son in Polish? with my limited Russian and Serbo/Croatian skills, I believe she started with, "What do you think..."

Chosen answer: She says: "What do you think? I think he is going like it." (Or "he is going to be satisfied").

Question: After powering up Stark tower in New York, Tony and Pepper have a brief conversation about a "security snafu" in their elevator that she was responsible for in some way. What exactly would that security thing be?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: It is mentioned during the conversation, that construction workers used Tony's personal elevator. Tony is using the term "Security Breach" as an exaggeration.

MasterOfAll

Question: After Fury briefs Rodgers about the Tesseract in the gym, Rodgers leaves, taking a punching bag with him over his shoulder. Why does he take the bag with him?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: So he can use it to work out wherever Fury was taking him.

MasterOfAll

Answer: So he could replace it.

Question: When O is speaking in Finucian for her eulogy of Zed, you see the tombstone-like monument statues of other fallen MiB agents behind her. One of them bears the initial, T. But wasn't T J's partner in the beginning of MiB II, and only neutralized and not killed? So why is his statue there?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: An agent's name comes from the first letter of their first name. Even if J neutralized T, there was most likely another Agent T (whose first name began with T) who joined MIB and died battling aliens.
