Grumpy Scot

Question: Is there a scene in the movie where we see Everett find the gold watch in the drawer while he is looking for a hairnet? It's not on the dvd and I am sure I have seen it. My family says they have never seen it so it's driving me crazy.

Answer: I too recall that scene.

Question: How come in the scene where Kirk rescues Captain Pike from on board the Narada, Pike appears to be able to move fine with only some assistance from Kirk, but at the scene at the end he is in a wheelchair?

Answer: The wheelchair may well be just a temporary measure. While Pike's able to move with Kirk's assistance, he's clearly not enjoying the experience, but, given that it's get moving or stay on a doomed ship, he just has to go for it. Even with the advanced medical technology available to them, it's not unreasonable that he wouldn't be back to normal immediately, and thus using a wheelchair for the time being is a sensible move, rather than continuing to move under his own power and risk damaging things further.

Question: In the movie there are eight dogs and one dies falling on the snow, which leaves seven. In the end there are five dogs and one lame dog, which totals six. Did I miss one? Thank you very much for your help.

Chosen answer: Yes you missed Old Jack, who's too old to go with the others on their journey and dies at base camp.

Anastasios Anastasatos

Question: If I'm correct, Carrie's mother (in both the movie and book) believes that Carrie had her period as a sign of some sin. However, the Bible itself has verses that mention periods. Being a religious fanatic who has most likely read the Bible several times, why isn't Carrie's mother aware of menstruation being natural?

Answer: Carrie's mother is not just a fanatic, she is also completely insane. To her, menstruation is a sign of Original Sin, the one committed by Eve in the Garden of Eden, and a mark that all women (and men!) are sinful in themselves.

Question: After Paulie is shot, Clemenza says, "Leave the gun, take the cannoli." Do the two men then walk home, catch a cab, take a bus?

stella01

Chosen answer: No. Everything was pre-arranged, and the entire trip was a ruse solely to execute Paulie for his part in setting up the hit on Don Corleone. Clemenza had Paulie drive them in Paulie's car on the pretense of looking for apartments to house Corleone "soldiers" in the event of a gang war. He directed him to drive and then stop at that specific isolated location where Rocco shot him. Another car is waiting nearby to pick up Clemenza and Rocco.

Question: Does Missingno, the infamous "Pokemon 000" glitch from Pokemon Red/Green (Red/Blue in the states) appear in this movie?

Answer: Missingno is a glitch from the video games, and is not a real pokemon, so no.

Subterranean Graduation Blues - S6-E19

Question: Does anybody knows why DJ isn't in this episode?

chrissepia

Chosen answer: Candace Cameron, the actress portraying DJ, was visiting family the week the episode was filmed.

Question: During the revolving door scene, how was Miley able to redo Hannah's make-up over and over again when it took so long for her to do it at the start of the movie before the concert?

curiouskid

Chosen answer: During a concert, a lot of makeup is used to show through the bright lighting. In this case, Miley may have needed little to no makeup. Also, since Travis is shown asking for the check and Miley goes back and forth so much, it may have taken her a long time, which is why she had to run off every time she got to the restaurant after a few seconds.

Question: When John discovers the disturbing paintings in Esther's room towards the end of the movie, a couple of them are life-size depictions of 2 people in sexual acts. To me, the man and the woman look like John and a "normal" sized Esther, as if she painted the scenario that she would have liked for herself. Did I see that correctly or were those just 2 random people?

Answer: Yes, I think it intentionally looked like John and a fully grown Esther; she was drawing her fantasies.

Question: What are the military ranks of Tucker, Watts, and Halsey? It's stated that Sharpe & Davis are Colonels, and Lev is a Colonel in the Russian military. Gruber is referred to as Sergeant, but so far, the ranks of the last 3 weren't mentioned.

Darthbane2007

Chosen answer: It is not mentioned in the movie. However, we can assume that Tucker and Watts are mid-grade officers. They would be below the commanding colonels, but above ensigns because of their flight status. Likely they are lieutenants or captains.

LorgSkyegon

Question: Is there a reason why Halsey wasn't given any lines in the movie?

Darthbane2007

Chosen answer: Because there was no real need for him to talk.

Question: In the scenes where Angel drinks blood out of a cup or glass, what were the props actually filled with?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: I once used raspberry syrup as blood in a film shoot. I'm sure there are other, more "professional" liquids available as well.

Question: At the beginning of the film we're told that four people came back from the rescue mission, three wrote books and two had their books published. Later on we find out Four Leafs made the whole thing up. So how do the other three survivors fit into the whole thing, did they just make it up too? Or was the opening statement just meant as a joke all-together?

Answer: There were 3 other survivors. Only they presumably told the truth. Since Four Leafs made up his version, his more than likely seemed more entertaining. So his book was chosen to be made into a movie.

Carl Missouri

Question: This confused me a little. At Stu's house, Randy answers the phone and hears about the principal's body being found hanging from a goal post on the football field. However, either Billy or Stu murdered the principal earlier in the day, so it seems that the other staff at school would have noticed that he was missing several hours ago. Billy and Stu are both at the party, so neither of them could have recently hung the body without someone finding it hours ago. Did one of the killers call and make up the story so that most of the kids would leave the house?

Answer: Billy came to the party late, presumably because he was hanging the body. The school seems pretty deserted when the principal gets killed (he goes into the corridor and only the cleaner is there, presumably cleaning after school is out) so it's reasonable to assume no one would have missed him yet.

Question: On the round trip going from Milan to London and back, which spice girl keeps saying "Are we there yet?" in the plane?

Answer: It is Mel B, aka Scary Spice. You can tell by her distinctive northern accent.

Question: What exactly happened to the original crew of the Event Horizon? Where did they go after they tortured each other?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: At least one crewmember is seen as a floating, frozen corpse on the bridge of the ship when the rescue crew are exploring, there is also evidence seen that a significant amount of tissue and blood have been spread around the walls in some parts of the ship, however it is implied that the original crew are in the alternate Hell dimention, if not physically then spiritually.

Question: What became of Martin and Beth after the the gene-swapping sequence? also, were Bartoks' employees aware of Bartoks' transformation?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: Presumably they go on to live relatively normal lives. The scene at the end of Bartok is meant to show that his employees have no sympathy for any creature, including him, who is suffering. At least some of them are aware it's Bartok, yet they allow him to be imprisoned and gawked at, just as they did the dog.

The Dalek Invasion of Earth - S2-E2

Question: Why did The Daleks want Earth? What was it that made them specifically choose Earth to invade? Also, why did they intend on turning the Earth into a massive spacecraft when they already have their own fleet?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: In the mockumentary "Whatever happened to Susan Foreman?" it is sugested that some Daleks may have survived the events of "The Daleks," rebuilt the race and gone back in time to take revenge on Ian and Barbra by invading 20th century Earth, but suffered a fuel shortage which left them stranded in the 22nd century. Presumably that would also leave them incapable of interstellar travel.

Josman

They wanted to remove the plants core - once removed, they can replace it with a power system that will enable them to pilot the planet anywhere in the universe. I don't know if anyone has mentioned why the Daleks would want to move the Earth anywhere else in the cosmos.
