Question: *spoilers* I read that in the play, Alice is hit by a car and killed. At the end of the movie, we see her walking down a street, and she keeps walking as a light changes to a red hand sign. Is this supposed to mean that she also gets hit by a car in this version, but the movie ends and doesn't show her being hit?

Chosen answer: It's left for your interpretation.

Question: Did Xeres really go to Esther's bed and kiss her forehead, or did she just dream/imagine it?

Chosen answer: No, Xerxes does not kiss her forehead because you see shortly after that, she is still asleep then wakes up. If he had really kissed her she would have felt it and woken up right then.

Question: How come only a select few people are supposed to be able to open the box (the ritual leader not being one of them) but it managed to open just by Amy throwing it across the room at the end? In the past movies also, anyone who gets their hands on the cube seem to have little or no trouble opening it.

Chosen answer: There is no logical answer to this. This should just be added to the mistake section.

Question: Did any of Jonas' DOT parts or even the majority of it come from the little robot, "Jinx" in the movie Space Camp? Most of DOT looks like Jinx.

Sheri Hartman

Chosen answer: Because the two films are completely unrelated (even from a company perspective), and because there isn't some giant Hollywood Prop Flea Market where everybody shares each other's props, I'm going to say no. The design may have been based on the robot from the movie.

Question: What is the song playing during the football game and who is the artist singing it?


Chosen answer: The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring.

Question: How old is Donna supposed to be? I know Meryl Streep is 59 but Donna couldn't be that old, could she? Not if Sophie is 20 and it is indicated that Donna was a young mother, as she got thrown out by her parents when she got pregnant.

Chosen answer: I looked it up, and not only is it not specified for the movie, but it's not specified for the stage show either. I think it's safe to assume she's meant to be in her early-to-mid forties, though.

Question: When Randall takes a photo of Warren and Jeannie at the airport after the mother's funeral, what happens to the camera he uses? He seems to put it down on something behind Warren, but then walks past Warren to get his luggage. Warren walks forward toward the gate and isn't seen to pick anything up after saying goodbye. I guess he could have, but wouldn't it have been stolen by then if it was left behind? I didn't see Randall put it in a pocket or bag.

Chosen answer: He could have picked it up. Besides, it may not have been stolen, but picked up by security, or otherwise taken to Lost and Found.

No Pot to Pease In - S9-E9

Question: In this episode we see the television show with the house looking very similar. Is this the real Bundy set redecorated, and when we see the porch and living room, is this the same set? Or was this a custom set specifically for this scene/episode?

Chosen answer: Same set, producers often do this to save money. It can even transcend shows and movies; for example most film companies only have one airplane fuselage set, so the plane in Die Hard 2 is the same as the plane in Planes, Trains and Automobiles is same as the plane in Airplane. Just redecorated a bit.

Question: What is the theme that is played at the end and during the credits?

Chosen answer: It is called "Manifest Destiny" and was done by Michael Nyman and Damon Albarn. It is on the soundtrack.

Question: Why does Zack have a blue SuperMart vest, when it seems like the other box boys such as Jorge have blue aprons?

Chosen answer: Some men prefer not to wear an apron, as they feel it is for girls not boys.

Show generally

Question: I don't understand how to get to the easter egg. I have several episodes and I tried it on all of them but it doesn't work on any - even the ones that say disc 2. So if someone could help me out or give me specific instructions that would be great.

Chosen answer: This only works with the first season. Simply follow the directions in the Easter Egg section of the Viva La Bam page. Unless for some reason the easter egg was removed from your particular copy.

Question: On the third disc, apparently there are some alternate endings hidden in an easter egg. Can anyone tell me how to get to them?

Chosen answer: The are no alternative endings for this film, all that is on the third disk is the movie played in chronologial order so you can see how things really panned out.

Question: Several times near the end of the movie, the German soldiers speak in German without subtitles. Can anyone translate?

Chosen answer: All I could catch was "VORAN,VORAN" which means "Go, go!"

Question: According to the credits, Suicide Kings is based on a short story by Don Stanford called "The Hostage". Where was this story published, and is it possible to read it?

Chosen answer: I found a google hit showing it was released as a short story for Cosmopolitan in Aug 1953.

Question: What is the name of the audio editor program John uses on his PC for playback of his static recordings?

Chosen answer: Evp.

Question: Does anyone know what the Indian sounding song is that is playing when they're running from the cops and she's telling her story?

Chosen answer: It is a remake of "Apache" by the Sugarhill Gang.

Question: Can somebody please tell me the joke that Lynn keeps trying to tell.

Chosen answer: The grandmother takes her grandson to the beach and falls asleep, while she is sleeping a huge wave comes in and sweeps the boy out to sea. Grandma wakes up to find the boy gone and begins to pray "Lord, if you bring him back, I will do anything you want." Another huge wave comes in and deposits the boy safe and sound in front of the grandmother and she looks to heaven and says "he had a hat on, you know!"

Question: In the Easter Egg when you get the scene 17, there are military files you can watch. One of them that works is videos a girl made for her boyfriend. In one of the videos, she was given a something that she was told not to eat and a recording of her boyfriend saying they found something (probably the alien) and she thought it was hoax and her boyfriend was seeing someone else. My question is, by how crazy she was acting in the other videos, she most likely ate the thing she wasn't supposed to eat. Anyone know what that could've been?

Chosen answer: It might have been the "seafloor nectar" that Slusho was using in it's drinks. The "nectar" might be related to the monster. The "nectar" is also the poison in the parasites that makes people explode.

Question: Why in the world does the traitor let go of Indy's hand when the ruins are collapsing? This seems like suicide, and he doesn't seem like he suddenly feels so guilty that he doesn't want to live.

Chosen answer: He's a greedy bugger who wants to try to get the treasure.

Show generally

Question: Has Carrie's sister, Sara, ever been mentioned again after the first few episodes, and why was she taken off?

Chosen answer: Sara hasn't been mentioned in later episodes, and it suggested in later episodes that she never existed, and that Carrie is an only child. Kevin James stated that the producers couldn't think of an good plots to use with Sara, so they left her out.
