Question: Why did Jones fire at the ceiling when Clifton is attacked by the infected Mailer?

EK8829

Answer: Because he is incompetent and doesn't know how to fire the gun properly. When he tries to shoot Mailer, the recoil takes him by surprise and he stumbles backwards, still squeezing the trigger, spraying wildly upwards.

Question: When Miguel first meets Hector, Hector claims he used to work with Ernesto, who Miguel initially thought was his great-great grandfather. When Hector confronts Ernesto after Miguel first meets him, Hector reveals how Ernesto murdered him with poisoned wine. Why doesn't Hector tell Miguel that earlier when they first meet?

Johman

Answer: Because Hector didn't realise he had been poisoned until The scene where they meet. It is only after he sees the scene from Ernesto's movie that he puts it together.

Exactly. It's shown in the film that Hector, and other souls, believe he died from eating bad food. Hence his embarrassing nickname.

Question: The second trap, they had to break jars open that were on the ceiling and get into the safety chambers, but there were "only three" for four people... Those were some pretty long, tall chambers. Couldn't the two smallest people share a single chamber, and all four survive? Especially since they look tall enough for two people to lie down right on top of each other.

Answer: That was the entire point of the trap. Each trap in the overall game was meant for them to all work together. The tape for this trap asks "Who will be the odd man out?" They took this to mean that one person had to remain outside the chambers, but what it really meant was two people would each share a chamber (assuming all five survived the first trap) and one person would occupy the third chamber all by themselves. Charles realised this and tried to tell everyone, but was unfortunately killed by the explosion before he could.

Question: When Turner is shovel shopping, why does he leave the shovel near the checkout area? Did he even check out, or could it have been because Ashley was following him?

Question: How did the name "Clear" come about? She's the only character with a unique name in the entire franchise, not counting anyone who goes by some sort of nickname.

Answer: According to IMDb, "Clear" is the first name of the assistant to Glen Morgan and James Wong, the writers of the film.

Question: After Michael auto fast forwarded from 2017 to 2023 the remote appeared to stop fast forwarding on its own. Is it because he didn't want it to fast forward and the remote listened, or is it just that he didn't get into any of the major ones he already fast forwarded to?

Answer: It fast forwarded one more time to the wedding scene (supposedly at least by 2030 or 2033 per all reviews causing the following question listed underneath this one). It stopped by then since that was the time Michael died (til Morty brought him back for a second chance in life).

Answer: He wanted it to fast forward to the wedding scene it stopped fast forwarding because Donna was not there for him to argue with and the rest of the preference he had he did not have another day to do.

Question: Just curious. How can the Escape Clause still work when the words are spoken via tape recorder?

JohnShel91

Answer: The snow globe only had to hear Scot/Santa's or Frost's voice being spoken to it in order to activate the Escape Clause. The snow globe could not differentiate between a recording of his voice and someone speaking to it in person.

raywest Premium member

Answer: Because of the snow globe listen to the voice of the Santa that is playing Santa the tape recorder had frost voice on there. Just like frost used Santa to get what he wanted by making Santa say it.

Question: What causes pressure in an oil well?

Answer: That largely goes back to how oil is formed: from dead organic material. That sinks to the bottom of the sea, and if certain layers of sediment build up over that, it gets buried deep enough that's it's compressed, and after enough time passes, it becomes oil. But that pressure from the massive weight of miles and miles of rock on top of it never actually goes away, so when you poke a hole in it, that pressure suddenly has a way to go, via the oil spewing up through the well.

Question: Why does Neil try to convince Charlie that there is no Santa?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Because Neil thinks Charlie is old enough now that he should no longer believe in fantasy figures like Santa Claus.

Answer: Because some parents don't think it's logical thinking.

Question: After ChicharrĂ³n is forgotten and disappears, where does he go?

Answer: No one really knows, perhaps the 'true' afterlife, though that is entirely speculation.

Question: What happened to Ernesto after he was crushed by the bell in the Land of the Dead?

Answer: I believe he died the final death because his skeleton body was presumably crushed. Hope this helps.

Also, a sign with "Forget" has been put on Ernesto's tomb in the living world, which would speed his demise if no-one remembered him.

Question: How did Newt die?

Answer: It is specifically mentioned in the movie by Clemens that she drowned in her cryopod.

Sona - S2-E22

Question: Bill Kim called the police, he said that. Why would he do that, because it was obvious he was going to kill Linc. It makes no sense.

mixone1995

Answer: I don't think he wanted to kill him, I think the plan was to get Linc and Michael into Sona so they could break out James Whistler.

Question: At the beginning the 2 kids call Ted to get directions, but when they see their truck being towed, they leave the phone, and chase the tow truck. The truck is taken right around the corner, and Ted is outside, waiting for them. There were no pay phones showing where Ted was, and no cell phones, so how did Ted call them, and get to be right around the corner so fast?

Lovescarymovies

Answer: Probably from inside the building he was standing in front of.

Question: Two questions involving Russel Franklin; Firstly, what was he referencing when he first arrived at Aquatica? It was just before he had the line "I am getting too old" or something to that effect. Second, why does everyone hate him exactly? I can kind if understand the Preacher when he joked saying that Russell was stupid for climbing the mountain, even if it was a joke, but what about everyone else?

Answer: I cannot answer the first part of the question. As for why they hate him, because he is there to see the progress of everything. She was told if she didn't produce results before he left, their research funding would be suspended and they would be out of a job. That's why they hate him.

lartaker1975

Answer: From 1977-1984 there was a show called "Fantasy Island." The host, Mr. Roarke, would say "welcome to fantasy island." When he was greeted with "welcome to our island paradise" it made him think of the show and he asked where Tattoo was. In "Fantasy Island" there was a character named Tattoo who would say "the plane boss, the plane" at the beginning of the show. It seemed everyone was too young to get his reference and he said he's getting old.

Question: Why did Harry call Voldemort a "liar" about bringing back his parents?

Joey221995

Answer: Harry knows Voldemort killed his parents and wants to kill him. He's smart enough to recognize Voldemort is trying to trick him.

Question: If the Basilisk snatched Ginny and took her to the chamber, then why doesn't she have teeth marks when they show her lying on the chamber floor? Surely the Basilisk didn't drag her, because it doesn't obviously have arms.

Joey221995

Answer: The comment that she was "snatched" was a generalization used by the Hogwarts staff and not a literal description of her physically being taken. Riddle was able to control Ginny through the diary, putting her into a trance and commanding her what to do. She most likely was instructed to follow the basilisk into the Chamber of Secrets.

Question: When Harry is walking down the corridor and hears "get out...get out" was that the basilisk saying that before he encounters Ron and Hermione, when they discover Mrs. Norris?

Joey221995

Answer: I believe Harry is hearing Voldemort's voice commanding the basilisk or the basilisk is repeating Riddle's orders to "get out" to attack someone at Hogwarts. Harry had a psychic connection to Voldemort that enabled him to hear the Dark Lord.
