Question: I saw the answer to the whole Frankie death scene, but there's still something I don't get. If Wendy and Kevin had stayed in his truck, wouldn't they have died, and messed up Death's list?

M0vi3

Chosen answer: They would've died, but Death "knew" they wouldn't have stayed in the car. If they had stayed, Death would change his death.

Question: Here's an interesting thought; Debbie was provided with a small power saw and told that to prevent a pipe piercing her skull, she would have to get a key, which is revealed to be in William's side. What was to stop her from simply using the saw to cut off the spear on her chest? Couldn't she have cut it off her chest, and had the harness taken off later?

Eyexpress333

Chosen answer: It's possible, but unlikely. 1) She was under great distress and might not have thought of that. 2) It would be easier (and more importantly, quicker) to cut through Easton's soft skin than the spear. 3) There is a good chance that tampering with the spear might have made it go off.

Question: In the secret wedding scene Wallace gives his Tartan to bind the hands but what is it that Murron gives to him? Is there a documented tradition for this?

Chosen answer: Traditionally the woman gives the man some cloth that she has woven or embroidered while the man gives the woman some food that he has grown (usually wheat or barley).

Question: When Abby is in the store, Lee calls her. What is Abby's ringtone? It sounds familiar, but I can't place it.

Chosen answer: The tune is called "Twisted Nerve" by Bernard Herrmann. It sounds familiar because in one of Quentin Tarantino's earlier films "Kill Bill", Daryl Hannah's character was whistling it before attempting to murder Uma Thurman's character in her sleep.

THGhost

Question: What is the name of the song playing while the Order are transporting Harry to headquarters?

moviefan2345

Chosen answer: The song is titled "Flight of the Order of the Phoenix" on the soundtrack.

Question: Here is something I really don't get. Near the end, Wendy and Kevin find out that Ian was supposed to cause Wendy's death somehow, but Ian would've already been dead. If Wendy hadn't intervened with Ian's original death, Ian wouldn't have been at the fair to cause Wendy's death. Can someone please explain this?

M0vi3

Chosen answer: This is REALLY tough to explain. Ian was NEVER supposed to cause Wendy's death. When Wendy looked at her shirt in the picture, she assumed that Ian was supposed to cause her death. Instead, Wendy was supposed to be crushed by the MCKINLEY sign, following the MCKINLEY shirt. Because Ian's death was skipped, he arrived at the fair, stopping Wendy from going under the sign, thus, skipping HER death. Also, the fireworks weren't supposed to kill Wendy while she laying on the ground, but to kill her while she was SUPPOSED to be under the sign. It was a coincidence that IAN showed up at the fair, and that he was under the sign, and had died. So, Ian was never gonna cause Wendy's death in the first place.

M0vi3

Answer: Well if you look at Ian's death picture he was suppose to be killed by a wood arrow. The sign was just like the flags in the picture. (With the same arrow tip shape). So Ian's death picture really wasn't wrong.

Question: Near the end, before the fair, Wendy is looking at the pictures on the computer, and she sees her picture. The clue is that Ian will cause Wendy's death, but Jason is next to her, and his face is blurred out. Is this another clue to Wendy's death?

M0vi3

Chosen answer: Yes, it is another part of Wendy's death. At the end, on Train 081, Wendy was looking out the window, and the people were blurry, and then Wendy saw Jason's face blurred out in the window.

M0vi3

Question: In the beginning, Richy gets his foot caught in a bear trap. Did Jason put this there or did the people put it there?

tetracore99

Chosen answer: It was left by hunters. Jason doesn't have the mental capacity to set traps for his victims.

razoprill

Question: I've seen the movie several times now but I still don't know the answer to this: in the beginning of the movie, who kills the two Japanese snipers - zombies or some clones of Alice?

Chosen answer: Based on the sounds to go with the scene, I'd say it is zombies taking the guards out. However, considering following events it is more likely that Alice and her friends have something to do with it.

Show generally

Question: I know that JJ is/was the media liaison for the team we as the audience follow; but a few times other teams have been mentioned. So is she the liaison for the other teams too? (She seemed to go with the team most of the time on their cases).

Chosen answer: Having seen just about every episode, as well as the spinoff (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, which focuses on a different team) it seems like she ONLY works with her team, being the liaison and media specialist for them only. The other team didn't have anyone in that capacity, choosing their cases on their own. And since that team specializes in crimes happening now, not after the fact like the original team, they have no need for that position.

Kimberly Mason

Question: Does anyone know how to access the easter egg on the DVD? There is a sign in the lower left corner that says "Keep Out" but I haven't figured out how to access it. Thanks for any help.

MovieFan612

Chosen answer: On the selection bar at the top, move the highlight all the way to the left so that "Play" is highlighted. Press the down arrow. "Keep Out" is now highlighted. Press the Enter or Select key (or whatever it's called on your remote).

Question: In the scene where 777 is curving on the viaduct, is that the crew, with the video equipment and stuff?

AWVR777

Chosen answer: Yes, for the news crew they used the filming crew.

Question: In the mistakes section it comments that Jude Law is wearing a hearing aid in one scene. Does anyone know anything about this? I couldn't find any reference to him having hearing loss online. Is it possible that it is actually just an earpiece?

Chosen answer: Jude Law's hearing is fine, he was wearing the hearing piece so the director can tell him where to stand while they are filming.

Answer: Because when they are sitting in the prison yard side by side Jude law has an earpiece in his left ear, if this is supposedly for direction why don't they both have ear pieces in and not just Jude law or are you suggesting that Jude law requires more direction making him a lesser competent actor or is it just the fact that it IS a hearing aid.

Question: In the scene where Connor and Murphy are walking to the Copley Plaza Hotel, the song playing is just amazing. I've looked everywhere for it but it wasn't listed on the credits and I don't even know the name or who performs it. I've looked for "Indigino" by the Chidros as suggested, but couldn't find anything. If any of you have the name and artist and where I could find the whole version, I'd really appreciate it.

Chosen answer: The same song is in the second movie (just more updated) - Crew cut vs. Poppa M.

Go Get Mommy's Bra - S2-E4

Question: So after they find the bra, both men assume that it was left there after a sexual encounter. Women change their clothes in cars all the time. And since Alan usually avoids sexual topics, wouldn't he at least have assumed that it was just left there? After all, when you are dressing after sex you should notice a bra missing; not so much if you were just changing your clothes.

swamphawk

Chosen answer: Alan might have thought the bra was too fancy to belong to a regular woman, "I'd love to meet the girl who filled this", he says. He assumed it was one of Charlie's many women.

Question: What is the point of having Reuben in the gang? What does he do? Provide them with money? Because everyone else has at least one job, except for him.

yagoduppel

Chosen answer: Yes. He's bankrolling the heist.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: I didn't get it, but who was the "ghost" deer that led Harry to the pond with the Griffindor sword in it? Or why did it lead him there?

Mortug

Chosen answer: It's not a ghost. It's a patronus, like the one Harry conjured in "The Prisoner of Azkaban," to save Sirius Black. Every wizard's patronus takes a different animal form. An as yet unknown ally (revealed in part 2, and the book) sent the doe patronus to lead Harry to where the Sword of Gryffindor was hidden.

Question: What did Obi-Wan mean when he said to Vader "You can't win, Vader. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine"? Also when he said "Strike me down", did he specifically mean taking Obi-Wan's life?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Yes, he meant take Obi-Wan's life. By killing him, Vader would release Obi-Wan from his body allowing him to follow and advise Luke wherever he goes.

Phixius

Question: It boggles my mind as to why Newt runs away from the Marines when she first meets them. She's been living alone for God knows how long and the Marines are the first people she's seen and her only thought is to get as far away from them as possible. Why on LV-426 would she do this?

Brad

Chosen answer: Because she's a child, her family and everyone she knows has been horribly killed, and she's terrified and traumatized. She does not know or trust anyone, least of all big scary Marines who are carrying huge weapons.

Question: At the end of the movie, when Elizabeth and Will are on the island, why does Elizabeth have to stay on the island? Why can't she stay on the boat with either the Black Pearl or with Will?

feathersl

Chosen answer: She doesn't really have to stay on the island. But that is her home, it's where she is raising her son. Living on a pirate boat is not the kind of life she wants for her son, and she can't stay with Will because he has to ferry those who die at sea to the afterlife. Elizabeth and her son can't follow him there or they would risk death too.
