Question: [Minor spoiler] I'm curious, because I can't remember 100%. Ryan Reynolds as Wade is very similar to Deadpool in the comics. The bad guy in the final fight, however, is nothing like the comic Deadpool, and I'm fairly sure that while it's of course strongly implied that he's the product of experiments on Wade, it's never explicitly stated. Stryker makes a reference to a "dead pool", and Wolverine says something like "Wade, is that you?" (with no answer), but as far as I can remember there's no concrete connection between Ryan Reynolds' character at the start and that final bad guy beyond implication/our assumption. I'm largely curious because there was talk of a Deadpool spinoff with Ryan Reynolds, and with the changes to the character, plus the events at the end of the film, that might be difficult, so I'm wondering if they left a deliberate loophole so if they make a Deadpool film they can just say "no, that wasn't him - everyone just assumed it was. The real Deadpool was off somewhere else". Make sense?Jon Sandys
Question: In the song sequence "Marian the Librarian", anyone know what she says? This couple is on the wall, reaching out for each other, and then Marian yells something that sounds like "Toby!" or something. Can anyone verify what she says?
Question: I understand most of The Matrix and I get the whole "there is no spoon concept," too. However I don't get why Morpheus could not apply the same principles when he was captured by Smith and the agents. Why could he not break free from the handcuffs then because "there simply are no handcuffs"?Is it because he had serum and had his sunglasses taken off of him? Please explain. It's driving us nuts.bi polar binks
Question: Two questions about Nancy and John Redcorn's affair. First, has it ever been explained why Nancy had an affair for so long and didn't leave Dale? Her relationship with John seemed to be more than just fun. Also, have the show's creators ever said why they didn't do an episode where Dale finds out about the affair?
Question: In the ending credits, you see "The Whiz Kid" and "The Whiz Kid's mom". Who are they and where do they appear in the movie? I have looked, but I have never seen Austin O'Brien anywhere in the movie even though he is listed in the credits as "The Whiz Kid", same with the Whiz Kid's mom. Is this a mistake or do they appear in some background?
Question: This is about the poker game on the coffee cup the cop gets. Was this an actual contest or something back in the early 90s? Would the cop have actually won something for the "full-house" or were those cups printed just for fun?
