Question: I'm submitting this as a question because it's not an obvious mistake, if it is even one. When Harry and Tanya are in the paddle boat, Harry asks Tanya what the father of the bride would normally do. Tanya responds by saying "Pay." Harry then jumps into the water and swims ashore. After "Does Your Mother Know" is performed, Harry presents Donna with a check to help with the wedding costs. Where did Harry get the check? All of his luggage is on Bill's boat. Did a reasonable enough time pass that allowed Harry to go to the boat, write the check and come back ashore by the time this scene begins?

Chosen answer: Either that, or he had brought some stuff, like a wallet with a checkbook, with him off the boat.

Question: I noticed the librarian, Judith, never appears after the retrieval of penicillin, I say this because I missed a tid-bit of the film after they acquired it. Is she there just camera shy or did she freeze?

Chosen answer: She is indeed alive. Take a close look at the scene when Jack Hall arrives. Judith appears in that scene.

Question: What is the (store) name on the slushie cup? It was in the extras on the DVD but I can't find it anywhere on the net. I was thinking it was something like 'Lick & Gulp', 'Slurp & Gulp' or something like that.

Chosen answer: Slurp & Slush - it's on this picture: http://www.axelmusic.com/resources/covers/back/024543506874.jpg.

Question: What are the scars on John Creasy's hand from, when the laser is on his hand at the end? When he is standing on the bridge with his hand on his chest the scars look the same size as a bullet?

Chosen answer: Creasy was a POW. A general was questioning him while captured. Cigarettes were put out on his hand as a means of toture.

Answer: John Creasy = JC = Jesus Christ (hands scarred like the hands of Jesus).

Question: Richie, Eddie, Beverly, Ben and Bill don't remember anything about each other or the events in Derry. For example Bev's husband reads one of Bill's books and she doesn't recognise the name, and Bill doesn't know who the architect Ben Hanscome is. Why is it that Stan not only recognises Bill's name and remembers him, but also remembers the Turtle?

Chosen answer: They don't remember each other throughout their lives, but when Mike calls them they have flashbacks and recall each other. They all remember when they're reminded by Mike.

Question: What is the name of the movie's title song? It goes something like 'Try to make a living, working."

Chosen answer: The Gambler, by Xzibit feat. Anthony Hamilton.

Question: In the scene where Bond retrieves his weapon from the concierge and enters the elevator with Vesper, he attaches his earpiece and goes to Le Chiffre's floor. Is he going to shoot Le Chiffre? If so, this doesn't seem to fit with trying to beat Le Chiffre at Poker. If not, what was his mission?

Chosen answer: Bond went upstairs only to spy on him. The gun was for if anything went wrong.

Question: In the swamp, why does Tony hear a song he knows very well, and Virginia hear an animal (wolf?) howling?

Chosen answer: They're both hearing things that they miss. Tony misses being back in his own world, so he hears a song that he knows from there. Virginia hears a wolf howling because she misses Wolf.

Question: What happens if Immortals kill on Holy Ground?

Chosen answer: It seems some catastrophic event occurs. This movie follows the continuity of the television show. In one episode Joe Dawson tells Duncan MacLeod the last time it happened was when two immortals fought in a temple at the base of a volcano. He tells him this caused the eruption that consumed Pompeii. But, Dawson also specifies that it's only a legend, and can't be confirmed as actually being THE specific reason for Vesuvius's eruption.

Chosen answer: It is never stated, however she must have been there several years if she is on presidential detail.

Question: Why wasn't Amanda's face shown in the flashbacks of her first day at the school?

Chosen answer: The filmakers decided to forego showing Amanda's face early on to give her grand entrance at the party more impact.

Show generally

Question: In the episode "The Ember Island Players," is there an inside joke or added meaning to the names that worked on the "play"? The "surprisingly informed cabbage merchant" is obvious, but besides that.

Chosen answer: The pirates are from the episodes "The Waterbending Scroll" and "The Waterbending Master" (They're the ones Katara stole the scroll from). The traveling musicians are from "The Cave of Two Lovers. The prisoners of war likely refer to the Kyoshi Warriors, the men of the Southern Water Tribe, and possibly Bumi and the other citizens of Omashu.

Question: Why is it that in the part of the movie, when Banner has a beard, the beard does not show up when he transforms into the Hulk?

Chosen answer: The Hulk is not human; The Hulk being may not even be able to grow facial hair, which certainly would be a perfectly normal explanation for why he never has a beard. Native American members of my family can't grow a single hair on their chins, but their direct half-siblings have full, flowing beards; perhaps something similar is happening here.

Question: When Hud and the group are running toward the monster (to save Beth) and a Russian guy runs up to Hud and starts speaking in Russian, does anyone know what he's saying?

Chosen answer: He's actually speaking Slavic, and is asking for help from Hud to locate his family.

Question: When Shane pulls Peter out of the ball pit it looks like he is wearing a cast on his right leg. Does anyone know if this is true?

Chosen answer: No, it is just his sock.

Blood Sugar Sex Magic - S8-E3

Question: What does Romano sign to Reece? (00:44:40)

Chosen answer: Take care of your dad.

Question: In the scene where little Jess is playing at the swing, right after she walks away from it, aren't there blood stains (or something just as reddish) on the swing's wooden seat?

Chosen answer: It appears so. M. Night often uses the color red in his movies as a visual clue that something emotional or violent is about to take place. If there was blood on the swing, it could be a forewarning to the audience that the house in question is more dangerous to the main characters than originally assessed.

Question: Anyone in a sales floor realizes that if you have a lot of people in one room talking at the same time, there's background noise. Yet only one or two people have active noise canceling headsets. Everyone else uses handsets. Either everyone should or no one should. Why the difference?

Chosen answer: I spent some time as a telemarketer (my apologies to anyone I may have called) and only certain people got headsets. They were used as a reward for top closers. Everyone else had to use handsets in a room similar to the one in the movie.

Question: I was under the impression, although I may be wrong, that winnings in Vegas are taxed over a certain amount, and that this is done in the casino when cashing out. At the end of the film, Lawrence Fishburn says that the IRS will be wanting to speak to Kevin Spacey, but how were they able to cash out the amounts they won whilst using fake id's? It doesn't mention it in the book either - I know for the purposes of the film this is soemthing they can gloss over, but I was wondering if it would be possible to win the amounts they are talking about and simply walk out with the cash? I know in one part they cash it in in smaller amounts, but surely the casino would be aware of a huge win on one of the tables, and would be expecting a big cash out?

Chosen answer: Gambling winnings are taxable, but using fake IDs was one way of getting around the IRS. It was also mentioned in the book that the team would keep chips until their next Vegas trip to avoid cashing out. They would also exchange money with each other so everyone would come under the $10K limit before the casino had to file a Currency Transaction Report. Also, there is no reason not to assume they would place some of their winnings as "credit" for their next visit.

Show generally

Question: Are there any outtakes/bloopers anywhere for the show?

Chosen answer: There are loads of outtake videos on youtube.
