The Strip Strangler - S1-E23

Question: Does anybody know the name and composer of the piece of classical music that Grissom plays in his apartment, as soon as he is suspended?

Chosen answer: Holberg Suite, 4th movement, by Edvard Grieg.

Show generally

Question: I know the pilot was shot and shown in 1989, but were there any other episodes shot and or shown along with the pilot?

Chosen answer: No, The Seinfeld Chronicles (the first episode) was filmed and broadcast by itself, and eventually the series was picked up by NBC. Only then was the next episode - "Male Unbonding" - filmed. The next episode to air after the pilot was "The Stakeout", almost a year after the pilot was broadcast.

Question: On my DVD from Thailand, when the queen is talking to the old man, just after loosing her child, it is voiced in Thai. Can someone tell me what they are saying?

Chosen answer: The old man is telling Queen Gorgo that he will arrange for her to speak in front of the elders, so she can persuade them to send the Spartan Army to help Leonidas. He also tells her that he will arrange the meeting in 2 days time, and advises her to get Theron on her side, no matter what, as he controls the council.

Question: There was a "Friday the 13th" TV series that ran from 1987-1990 and had about 70 episodes; does anybody know where I can see these episodes online?

Movieman123

Chosen answer: No, not all of them. The first three episodes are on Youtube. Direct TV new horror-movie channel - Chiller TV - is airing all the episodes currently, but you have to subscribe to the TV station (check out ChillerTV.com.) They are not officially on DVD, but are also sold on ebay. The series has no affiliation to the Friday The 13th Jason films.

Answer: The entire series is now on DVD. You can most likely find them on Amazon or a video store.

Question: When Tony gets the shrapnel in the chest, he first pulls apart his shirt, then pulls apart something black and sees the holes in his chest. Is the black thing an undershirt, or some sort of bullet proof vest?

Chosen answer: It's a flak jacket that didn't work as well as he would have liked.

Zwn Annwn

Question: I've never seen them in the movie, but someone is in the credits as "Stan's Girls." I assumed this was Stan Lee, but where (if anywhere) are they in the film?

Chosen answer: They are outside the award banquet he goes to, he calls Stan Lee "Heff" and Lee is dressed like Hugh Hefner, and has a few girls around him.

Question: What is the creepy opera-esque music playing when Donnie sees Frank in the movie theatre called? I can't find it in the soundtrack.

Chosen answer: The track is called "For Whom The Bell Tolls" and it's composed by Steve Baker and sung by Carmen Daye. You're right, it's not on the soundtrack but it can be found through a search engine.

Question: Who is the strong player with the Russian accent whom Josh plays in the park near the beginning?

Chosen answer: Vasek Simek.

Question: When Isabel answered Rusty's phone, what was the ring tone?

BigOLB

Chosen answer: It was "Pretty in Pink", originally sung by The Psychedelic Furs for the Molly Ringwald movie of the same title.

Question: When John dives from the prison truck through the windshield of the Sheriff's truck, the windshield glass breaks (not shatters) as a flat, house window would break. I don't know when safety glass was first introduced, but can anyone confirm if the glass for this type of vehicle would actually break this way?

Chosen answer: The windshield glass would have not broken this easily (like regular window pane glass in your home or such). I am going to guess that kind of glass hasn't been used on car winshields since at least the early 70's, if not before. The Sheriff's truck didn't appear to be that old, either.

Show generally

Question: In a second-season episode Roy wears a cool shirt that simply says 'meh' on it. Has anyone else on another TV show worn this shirt? I've seen it somewhere before but I've never seen the IT Crowd so it's not by Roy. Thanks.

Chosen answer: The shirt is available from www.ThinkGeek.com and is fairly popular in the nerd culture, so it's possible you've seen it in real life or online.

Question: Is the trailer made by Amanda for the film starring Lindsay Lohan for an actual film? If not, how much was Lindsay Lohan paid to appear in the trailer?

Chosen answer: I'm not sure how much she was paid, but no, it isn't a real movie.

Pilot - S1-E1

Question: After explaining why it is illogical to play the lottery, Charlie asks the FBI agent if he ever plays craps. I didnt get the joke. Any help?

Chosen answer: Craps is a casino game where players bet on the outcome of a dice roll. It deals heavily with probabilities and is a favorite of math experts like Charlie. Whatever the odds, though, your chances of winning are much greater than winning the lottery.

Question: It's not on IMDb so I have to ask here, first who plays the little boy who gives Uhl the "orange tree" book? Second, is there an actor who played the emperor or is the picture Eisenheim "paints" a picture of a actual emperor of Austria?

Chosen answer: Although the story is fictional, some of the details are based on the life of Austrian Crown Prince Rudolf, only son of Emperor Franz Josef. The painting of the emperor which Eisenheim creates is an actual portrait of Franz Josef. (from IMDb).

The One With Phoebe's Dad - S2-E9

Question: What is the year of the taxi Phoebe drives to her dad's house?

Chosen answer: From a website i've just looked at, it says the New York taxi served from 1981 to 1983.http://www.americanhire.net/ebay.htm.

Question: At the end of the film when we see the logo for the design company, briefly visible is Michaela Conlin (Angela from "Bones"), who I don't think had any lines in the film. She's credited on the IMDb as "May" - did she have lines deleted, or was this just a cameo of sorts (although she's not really famous enough for most people to recognise her)?

Chosen answer: Originally she was scripted to have a few scenes with Nancy, Robert's girlfriend, in the design studio. The Producers deleted some of those scenes. You can see that in the DVD under Deleted scenes, where she has a slightly bigger part and actually has a small conversation with Nancy about Robert's text message apology.

Question: Why does John stand with his arms open when Cecil's trap breaks? Was it some kind of challenge so he would charge at him and fall into the barbed wire or something else?

Chosen answer: It appears that this is the case. The first trap failed, so by challenging him, John is simply giving Cecil an improvised second test. If Cecil had stopped to think it through, he may not have been hurled into the razor wire. Of course we are never given an official explanation, so it is up to debate, but this seems to be the most reasonable answer.

Show generally

Question: What Happened to Muriel? Around season two she disappeared.

Chosen answer: Keep in mind, Muriel wasn't very popular. So the writers/directors must have thought it'd be a good idea to let go of the character. No one seems to be complaining.

Wormy / Patty Hype - S2-E7

Question: In "Wormy", what was the name of the friendship song in the scene with Spongebob Patrick and Wormy?

Chosen answer: It's called "That's what friends do" on the Spongebob Yellow album, track 19.

Question: During the La Vie Boheme song Angel looks at Roger over the top of Mark and says something. Anyone know what it is?

Chosen answer: Angel says "I can feel his balls".
