Chosen answer: As revealed in 24: The Game, Max was a weapons dealer with ties to terrorist organizations. It is further revealed in the game that his weapons dealings with terrorists were interfered with by American authorites. which caused the deals to go sour. His terrorist clients retaliated by murdering his family before his eyes. Presumably, he was primarily motivated by revenge against the American Government, with a secondary goal of driving up oil prices to make himself rich. To this end, he masterminded the plot to start a war between the US and three Middle Eastern countries.

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: I actually just watched this movie again today and I think it was because he was acting too calm and quiet. Marti might have got suspicious from the slight change in his personality. He also wasn't sweaty anymore and didn't have that white patch on his cheek that you can see in the previous scene when he picks up the phone in the doctor's office.

Show generally

Question: (episode 3-9, "The Family of Blood") Where is the scene with the Doctor binding Father of Mine in chains suppose to take place?

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

Driven - S4-E19

Question: I feel like a scene was missing when I watched this episode.

However I didn't see her earlier in the episode and at no point was Delko talking to her. What event is she referring to here?

Show generally

Question: OK, why does the title song have nothing to do with the show? It keeps saying "haaaawaii!" over and over, yet the show takes place in Vegas, not Hawaii. I never got that.

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: It's actually "Who Are You," which is the title of the theme song by The Who. A bit more fitting for a crime show's theme than constantly saying Hawaii.

Question: I've noticed this in other Anime, but I see it a lot in Naruto; quite frequently the characters run with their arms straight behind their backs. Is there any reason for this? I spent a little time in Japan but I never saw anyone run this way.

Chosen answer: That is just a style used by some animators. It is easier to keep the arms in one position than to draw them in motion. And it makes it look funnier.

Question: In the courtroom scene, the mob guy suddenly pulls out a gun and attempts to kill Harvey Dent. How was he able to get a gun into the court building? Surely the metal detectors and/or security would have easily caught him?

Chosen answer: Dent specifically describes it as a ceramic gun, which is presumably designed not to set off metal detectors. It's arguable that security should have frisked him more closely, but as the witness was expected to be cooperative, based on his previously sworn statement, it's understandable that they didn't consider him a major threat and simply relied on the metal detectors.

Chosen answer: He fights an emissary of Sauron's who's called "The Mouth of Sauron," not Sauron himself.
