Question: Part of being in the Pegasus galaxy is that the 8th chevron is for travelling across galaxies. They say the first 6 are for the destination, and the 7th is for the point of origin. My question is, how do they always know the 7th symbol for the planet they are on? They always know how to dial out, even under fire, but how do they know the 7th chevron all the time?

Chosen answer: All DHDs have a set of symbols, either 38 or 35, the former being the Milky Way gate system, and the latter being the Pegasus. They each have an individual Point of Origin Symbol, making them have 39 and 36 symbols in total for each set of gates in the different systems. Like a phone, the DHDs and the Milky Way gates have a standard order and placement of the different dialing symbols, with the PO symbol would be placed somewhere, lets say at the top on the outer rim of the DHD, between two of the constellations, always the same.

Question: When Yvette goes to meet Miss Scarlet/Mrs. White when the electricity is off, she loses her French accent. Does this mean she was faking the accent the entire time? If so, why?

Chosen answer: Yes, the accent was fake. She wasn't a French maid, she was a prostitute who used to work for Miss Scarlett. She was hired by Mr. Boddy.

Question: Is the beer that HB and Abe drink a real brand name or fictitious?

Chosen answer: Tacate is a real brand of Spanish beer.

Question: What exactly happened to the FBI agent who got locked inside Jigsaw's room? And how can Hoffman know that Rigg won't escape and give away his true identity? He didn't look that badly wounded to me.

Chosen answer: Recent previews for "Saw V" have revealed that Strahm (the FBI agent locked inside Jigsaw's room) is still alive and will play a role in the upcoming sequel, though we don't know to what extent. Hoffman can be sure Rigg won't escape, because he was shot in the abdomen and was losing a great deal of blood, and by the time help arrives, he will most likely be dead from the wound. Remember, Hoffman is a forensic agent and is probably good at judging the lethality of wounds such as Rigg's.

Question: If Otto can't get his feet out of the wet cement, how on earth does he manage to extract his entire body?

Chosen answer: It was comic license...how did he survive being run over with a five ton piece of heavy machinery or falling off an airplane? Don't read too much into it.

Question: Why does Tony hear horses galloping every time his bad luck strikes again?

Chosen answer: It's the sound of his bad luck coming.

Question: Why did the three boys pay Drillbit to protect them from Filkins, and not from Ron also?

Chosen answer: They probably thought that Filkins was a bigger threat.

Question: I've played it over and over and still can't figure out what the bully kid Michel says, right after Hancock lands in the street. Is it in French?

Chosen answer: Yes, he basically says that he's going to tell his mother and the police.

The Inquisitor - S5-E2

Question: What is the Inquisitor saying as he is being wiped from existence?

Chosen answer: The direct quote is "But you can't. All my wonderful and glorious work will be undone!"

Question: Not related to movie. Did Christian Bale get work done on his teeth? In Batman Begins, his teeth were quite crooked and his jawline was quite distinct. In this movie they seem straight and perfect.

Chosen answer: Yes. definitely. His teeth look much straighter in this movie.

Question: What is the order of seniority between Nick, Sarah and Warick?

Chosen answer: Warrick first, Nick next, Sarah last.

Question: How did Moses' Egyptian mother explain where Moses came from? Her husband was dead and this baby just happened?

Chosen answer: Bithiah (not sure of the spelling, sorry) claims the Gods of the Nile sent Moses to her, knowing she would never have a child of her husband's body.

Question: Just before Angel and Collins invite Roger and Mark to go to the life support meeting, Angel says something in Spanish. Does anyone know what it is?

Chosen answer: "This egg needs some salt." It's a Spanish idiom meaning that he needs a girlfriend.

Question: When Baby helps Penny out by dancing with Johnny at the Sheldrake hotel, it is stated that it is Thursday night (when Penny has the abortion). At breakfast the next day Baby's dad says they are leaving tomorrow, even though they are paid up til Sunday. Thursday night is the first night that Baby and Johnny sleep together, yet they seem to be seeing each other for ages before Johnny even gets sacked, let alone the time that's past when he comes back. I don't see how all of this be squeezed into 2 days?

Chosen answer: The father says they're leaving the next day, but when the mother asks why, he realizes he'd need to explain what happened, so he decides not to leave, and they stay for the rest of the trip as originally planned.

Question: What's the symbolism behind all the blue in the movie?

Chosen answer: Blue's the color for Aubrey's character, and the red one's for Dakota. If you watch the movie carefully you can notice that Aubrey wears blue clothes the most of the time while Dakota wears red ones. So it's just to represent the diferent characters and make the movie obvious.

Question: Not being a gambler, the terms they use has always confused me. For example at the end the Black Widows tell Beekman that he still owed them $0.70 on the dollar. What does this mean? How much does this add up to?

Chosen answer: This means 70%, ie. for every dollar they are owed they will only recieve 70 cents.

Question: Can anyone explain exactly the orange juice prank that happened between Will Moseley and Ben Barnes? I can never understand what they're saying in the interviews. I know it involved Will sneezing or something. Thanks.

Chosen answer: I think Ben was in his armour and Will came over, sneezed and his orange juice went all over Ben. Will ran to his car and hid from the director.

Question: A part of this film's critical acclaim was caused by an unfocused shot, which the critics called brilliant - even though the lack of focus was an accident. What is that shot and where exactly in the movie does it appear?

Chosen answer: The shot in question occurs when Sinatra's character, Marco, holds up a deck full of queens while trying to deprogram Raymond. On the DVD commentary track, the director, Frankenheimer, acknowleges that the scene was out of focus, and that though Sinatra supplied several other takes of the scene, the other takes weren't nearly as good, so he went with the flawed one. Later, Frankenheimer was praised by critics for the unfocused shot showing Raymond's disturbed perceptions.

Question: I don't understand why the people kill themselves. I mean I understand that the neurotoxin removes their self-preservation instincts, but wouldn't that just make them not care if they live or die and take unnecessary risks, not actively seek out ways to kill themselves?

Chosen answer: If such an event were to actually occur in the real world, that would be the most likely scenario. The mass suicide is just how M. Night Shamylan chose to portray the event in his film.
