Co-Dependent's Day - S15-E15

Question: When watching Cosmic Wars, Lisa refers to the character who looks like Jar-Jar off Star Wars as a "tired stereotype", what does she mean by this?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Amongst the many complaints people have about Jar-Jar is that he seems to be portraying an old stereotype of an ignorant black person. Lisa is probably commenting on this.

Question: Who was Jamie's maid of honor at the wedding? I was reading some discussion on imdb and the comments seem to indicate that it was Belinda since neither she nor Dean's girlfriend were seen sitting in the pews with Dean, Eric et al. One shot does briefly show a blonde girl holding the bouquet of flowers.

Chosen answer: Belinda was Jamie's Maid of Honor.

Question: When the Duke says that he "cannot" ask Lady Bess to leave his home (after the Duchess discovers their affair), does he simply not want to or is there some reason that he feels he cannot?

Chosen answer: He is ignoring the Duchess' request by saying that he cannot ask her to leave. He does not want her to go, nor does Lady Bess wish to leave.

Question: Just a question and an observation: When does Lymangood find out what JAFO means? He didn't know when he got into Blue Thunder for the first (and last) time: "When are you going to tell me what JAFO means?" 1. They find out about the evil plot. 2. Lymangood gets the tape after they land. 3. He leaves a recording for Frank inside Blue Thunder using "Big Brother", the cabin recorder.4. He drops the tape off at a drive-in movie dumpster. 5. He calls and leave a voice-mail for Murphy. 6. He goes home and is attacked. So when was he told what JAFO means? Also, someone had a sense of humor about naming the Special helicopter. It was to be used in project THOR (Tactical Helicopter Offensive Response, the "proposed use of military helicopters to quell disorder"). Thor is the god of thunder in Norse mythology. Did they name the helicopter Blue "Thunder" because it was going to be used in Project THOR? It would have been nice to connect the two references in the movie.

Excelsior

Chosen answer: There was plenty of time from Lymangood asks what Jafo means to when he gets killed. For all we know it could have been weeks. It was only a simply question really. As for any connection between blue thunder and Thor, it could have been an in-joke, but only the filmmakers really know.

Little Big Girl - S18-E12

Question: Why was the episode "Little Big Girl" called "Little Big Girl"?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: It is a play on the movie "Little Big Man" starring Dustin Hoffman. In that movie he portrays a white man who lives as an Indian for part of his life.

Question: How did Littlefoot's mother die, when she had so few injuries, but the Sharptooth lived after falling the height it fell. At this point in the movie a earthquake happens, splitting the earth open, and creating cliffs. Littlefoot's mother threw the Sharptooth off of the cliff to save Cera and Littlefoot's lives. But falling of a cliff wouldn't just knock you out, it would kill you. The Sharptooth had no ill effects from the fall, except for being knocked out.

thesimslover828

Chosen answer: Littlefoot's mother has obvious grievous wounds on her neck and back. She also quite possibly has internal injuries as well. It's also possible that Sharptooth had many injuries as well, but was able to heal better or just fought through the pain because of hunger. Or perhaps he fell in ways that lessened injuries.

Question: In the scene where Leonard rolls up to Ferdy's, and Natalie mistakes him for Jimmy, he says he's not Jimmy, she has a certain look in her eye that I just can't grasp. Why then, doesn't Natalie ever tell Lenny that he's driving Jimmy's car and is wearing his clothes? Does that imply she already knows him and perhaps she's using him to kill Jimmy for her?

Chosen answer: No, that doesn't imply she already knows him. She used him to kill Teddy and Dodd (not Jimmy), because of her boyfriend Jimmy who was missing at that point. She was only suspicious of Leonard, because of the car and the clothes, but even more so when he showed her the coaster meant for her boyfriend.

Of Ice and Men - S2-E7

Question: Stan ditches Francine as a skating partner to skate with Roger because he's better than Francine and he does that because he wants to win the skating championship. Later in the episode, Stan realises it's not the winning that matters, then ditches Roger to skate with Francine not to win. But she declines. Why would she want to skate with him and not skate with him when he doesn't want to do it just to win?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: She declines because she is still angry with him for ditching her.

Question: In the wedding scene, why is Carolina wearing two different types of shoes? One is white the other is badge and strapped another way.

sunfox35

Chosen answer: The wedding takes place almost immediately after they escaped from General Marquez. She did not grab a matching pair.

MasterOfAll

Question: Does the majority of this movie takes place in 2012, meaning that Mavis was born in 1894?

Chosen answer: Yes.

Question: When Christine is taken into the Phantom's lair for the second time - after the chandelier crash - and Raoul comes to save her, they all sing an overlapping reprise of The Point of No Return. The Phantom sings The Point of No Return, Christine sings Angel of Music, but what does Raoul sing? Is it a new tune or a particular song from the movie?

Chosen answer: He sings the tune from All I Ask of You.

Question: I know this is just a movie, but I'm confused about how the whole jurisdiction subject is highlighted in the movie. In the scene where Hobbs tries to arrest Dom and co., they exchange words and Dom says "And your mistake is thinking you're in America". Earlier in the conversation and also earlier in film Hobbs basically says that when names of criminals come up, he hunts them down, but seems to indicate it doesn't matter where the arrest is made. There's never an indication Hobbs had a warrant to make an arrest in another country. The main characters also mention the "No extradition" policy in some countries. Does that play a part as well?

Chosen answer: Hobbs' team is part of an international police force, so if they are called in all warrants would have been taken care of off screen. When it pertains to Dom's comment about "Your mistake is forgetting where you are, this is Brazil" wasn't so much stating that he's out of his jurisdiction. He was basically stating "Well guess what, there are different laws here. And unlike the US, here they have a lot of guns and now they're all going to point them at you and warn you that you are not going to take us in right here and now like you think you are." It had nothing to do with jurisdiction, legality or warrants or any of that. It was basically about how things are handled and done in the streets regardless if you are police or International law enforcement or not.

MasterOfAll

Answer: Maybe what he meant was if they are in America, no one probably would go against them, but in Brazil, no one is afraid of them since everyone is with a gun.

Question: When Reese Feldman is on his yacht and shoots the guy for screwing up, he pulls a gun with a silencer out of a cooler. Why would you need a silencer in the middle of nowhere? (00:01:40)

Chosen answer: Feldman is the type of guy who wants to be as thorough as possible, as seen with his cocaine tasting like sugar and drug dogs being unable to smell it. He would not want any ships that could possibly be passing by to hear the shot.

Question: I read online that Mewtwo, Lugia, Entei, and Celebi are hidden in this movie. Can anyone tell me where they are?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: They're hidden on walls as artwork. They can be seen here: http://www.serebii.net/movies/latias_latios/cameos.shtml.

Question: Loki is pacing in the prison on the helicarrier and just as he says "there aren't many people who can sneak up on me" Natasha is shown. In that shot half of her outfit is tan. at first i thought it was Loki's reflection in the glass but he isn't wearing anything tan. Can someone explain what's going on to me?

Fightergirlpan

Chosen answer: The cell has large glass windows connected by large white supports. It is one of these supports that you see dimly reflected against her black outfit which, along with the lighting, creates the effect that you describe.

Question: This has been a question that's always brought up. Was Ellie Grimbridge always a robot from the very beginning, or was she turned into (or exchanged with) one when she was held captive at the shamrock factory?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: She was turned into one when she was captured. The robots didn't speak and if you notice that after he finds her, she never says a word. As well, she displayed genuine emotion throughout the film before she was captured, something the robots also never did.

Question: (Not that I'm complaining or anything) but why was Violet wearing the outfits that showed off her belly? Did it have something to do with the loss of her unborn child?

Rydersriot87 Premium member

Chosen answer: Simple sex-appeal, no plot significance.

Question: Arsenio Hall is credited for starring in this film. When does he appear and what character does he play? I have seen this movie multiple times and don't recall ever seeing him in it.

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: He filmed a fake episode of his talk show for the film. You can see Kevin watching it (it has superheroes Gay Man and Midget Man).

Question: What's the significance of the serum the werewolves use at the church?

specialj

Chosen answer: It was a drug to control werewolf transformations that went wrong. It causes immediate transformation into a werewolf, instead of having to wait until the full moon.

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.
