Question: What happens to each of the women at the end of the movies? Each movie has a completely different love interest, we're left to believe that they have bonded and are in love and set for a happy ending, but by the next movie, that woman is gone with no explanation and he's chasing after someone new.

Chosen answer: Bruce Wayne is notorious for not being able to maintain a relationship for long. The relationships likely fall apart for various reasons, some relating to him being Batman.

Jason Hoffman

Question: What was the point of the piece of robot that stuck to the back of the security car? It never served any major purpose in the movie.

Jack Kaltenbach

Chosen answer: It was just to show that, being composed of a polymimetic alloy (liquid metal), all pieces could be recombined into the whole terminator.

Question: When Kate Winslet first gets home, she turns on the gas on one of the stove burners (but doesn't light it). As Cameron Diaz starts talking with her via the Internet, two of the burners are on, and she gets up and turns one of them off. If I'm not wrong, the other remains on and because of the fireplace would end up setting her house on fire. Or it might just be that the other burner was already on and burning to heat something. Could anyone please give a more certain answer about that?

Chosen answer: Iris only turns on one burner without lighting it. When the Internet tone for getting a message sounds, Iris comes to her senses, turns off the unlit burner, opens the window and then answers Amanda's message.

Question: What did the trooper mean when he said, "Didn't you know this ain't Saturday"? It always makes me wonder.

Chosen answer: The trooper on the motorcycle had just landed in the water. In older days, the typical day to take a bath, wash hair, etc. was Saturday. The trooper in the car (once he saw the motorcycle trooper was okay and wet) just made a joke about him taking a bath.

Zwn Annwn

He was making a reference to the fact that on the weekend, people like to go off roading and have a good time on motorcycles, 4 wheelers, etc.

Question: If Lanning really had leaped from that distance, wouldn't he be unrecognizable upon impact and not with only a little bit of blood coming from his mouth?

Chosen answer: He'd certainly have a lot of internal injuries that aren't visible, would probably have more injuries showing than that trickle of blood, but wouldn't necessarily be "unrecognizable."

Phixius

Question: Is Chef Skinner named for B. F. Skinner, the noted psychologist who did experiments with rats?

Chosen answer: According to the IMDb: yes, he was.

Question: What's the joke Marlin knew?

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Chosen answer: "A mollusk walks up to a sea cucumber and... [Most of the joke itself is missing here, as we only get to hear the beginning and end of it] ...so the sea cucumber turns to the mollusk and says 'With fronds like these, who need anemones?'" It's a pun on the term "with friends like these, who needs enemies", only with words more suited for an aquatic environment.

Question: According to the IMDB, Peter Tork has an uncredited cameo in this film. Does anyone know where in the movie his cameo is?

Chosen answer: He's reportedly in the background during the scene where Kirshner, Harris and Van are discussing the Monkees' Hawaii concert tour.

Jean G

Question: In the movie trailer, Roddy lived with two another animals (hamsters), but they are not in the movie. Why?

Chosen answer: Probably time issues.

Disney-Freak

Question: During the mutant attack on the house Will Smith enters an upstairs room and we see what appears to be part of an arm dripping blood. What is this or who owns it? It doesn't appear to be the mutant who attacks straight afterward as he appears uninjured and free of any blood.

Chosen answer: It's not an arm, it a part of the metal plate covering the window.

Mortug

Question: Is it actually explained in the movie why Willard Whyte is in hiding?

Chosen answer: If you mean by hiding - why is he never seen normally - then it's because he is a recluse and doesn't like to be seen in public (like Howard Hughes was). If you mean by hiding - why was he not seen during the movie - then it's because he was being held captive by Blofeld and his minions. Spectre didn't want him out and about ruining their plans.

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Question: How do you access the easter egg for this episode to see the other story line about Monica and Chandler in the Airport?

JCT05

Chosen answer: If you watch the episode on the dvd, at the end it will come up explaining how the scene was cut due to September 11th. After that quick message the scene plays automatically.

A Demon

Question: Why does it take the Federation two months to do anything about the explosion on Praxis?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Because (as we see in the first ten minutes of the film) the prideful Klingons didn't want anyone entering their space.

JC Fernandez

Question: Why did Alfie start to have problems Nikki when she broke a champagne glass and got a little loud on New Years? Since they went to a lot of parties and she was the wild, adventurous type, I don't understand why this surprised and offended him so much.

Chosen answer: As I understood it, when she broke the glass, she was being a bit more wild than usual, which caused Alfie to suddenly realise that her loudness could be annoying. He found her wildness attractive to a point, but she was being more wild than he was prepared to accept.

Madstunts

Question: I was just watching the film on the Disney Channel, I noticed that cuss words are cut out which makes perfect sense, but what doesn't is the drinking, shooting, the dead animal, the dead sheriff, and various other items that were kept in the film. Disney channel likes to keep as much violence and language as possible out of films shown on their channel, but why keep in the other stuff?

Chosen answer: Disney doesn't specially edit any of the movies shown on their channels. They just rebroadcast the movie edited for "family" viewing.

Question: Why doesn't Disher feel at all sad that his uncle has just died?

Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? - S4-E6

Question: In the beginning credits of movies/t.v. shows, when they say "and introducing" followed by the actor's name, it is because it is the 1st acting role for that actor. In this episode when the introduced Quinn's brother, the beginning credits say "and introducing Charlie O'Connell." However he has done other acting roles before he appeared on Sliders. As a matter of fact, he did 2 episodes on Sliders as a different character before he became Quinn's brother. So is there a reason why the actor was "introduced" in this episode?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: Quinn's brother was going to be a recurring character, so "introduced" in this case referred to the actor becoming a semi-regular.

Question: There is a Blues Brothers song, sang by Elwood and Jake themselves, "I'm a Sole Man". However, this song does not appear in the film, but is often related to their band. Was the song supposed to be in the movie? Is it a deleted scene? If it is, can someone tell me when it was supposed to appear?

Chosen answer: It's called "Soul Man". The Blues Brothers exist as an entity seperate to the film - they originated as a band performing on Saturday Night Live. The band continued, releasing an album in 1978, entitled "Briefcase Full Of Blues", which contained the track Soul Man, as well as many others. This was followed by the film two years later, the soundtrack of which formed the band's second album. None of the tracks from their first album appear in the film - a third album followed shortly after the film, again containing non-film tracks.

Show generally

Question: During the recent season of Lost (not sure about past seasons), during the promo for the show where it shows the island with the word LOST across it, the reflection of the island in the water does not match the island, but is in fact a city. I have not seen this discussed anywhere. Are there any thoughts or discussion about what this means?

Chosen answer: Part of the storyline of the new season deals with events in the future after a number of survivors have escaped the island and are now living their lives back in the normal world. The island/city mix in the promotion could be designed to reflect this new set-up.
