Question: Was Mrs. White in love with Wadsworth? She seemed to be getting rather close to him in the beginning of the film (i.e., giving him a hanky when he's crying about his wife, playing with his tie and being flirtatious when he won't let her outside), but then seems to turn a 180 and not really like him. Why?

Chosen answer: No, Mrs. White was not in love with Wadsworth. She may have been slightly physically attracted to him at the time of the "hanky incident", but it is more likely that she only felt sympathy for this poor man. As for the playing with the tie incident, she only did that so he would let her out.

High Anxiety (2) - S4-E14

Question: There may not be any reason for this, but why did Buck want to ride to the quarry in Hank's truck?

Chosen answer: At that point in the investigation Buck was trying to frame Hank for the murder of Debbie. Buck tried incriminating him on tape and planting a shotgun shell in his truck. Using Hank's truck to go to the quarry gave him an opportunity to plant the shotgun shell. Why he picked the quarry specifically is left unknown, but it was likely one place that would be deserted and easy to speak freely.

Question: In tournament action, is the crane kick an actual legal move to use? How about the stance to start the move?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: There are no rules about how a fighter must stand before throwing a kick, and it's basically just a jumping front kick, which is completely legal.

Answer: It was not the technique that was illegal but where and how he made contact with Johnny that was illegal. I'm not 100% sure how to describe what is wrong with it but it is the spot he made contact with and that he kicked Johnny with intent to hurt him (witch may seem weird but believe it or not point based karate sparring is in fact a non-contact sport somehow).

In the film, there was nothing illegal about the contact he made, nor was it determined he had an intent to harm. Bobby was disqualified for an excessive and deliberate attack, but he also intentionally kicked the leg, which was not a part of the body to earn a point. What you may be trying to describe as illegal was lack of control. The ref even says to watch the control. It could be up for debate about if Daniel had control over his kick, but in the film, the ref found it acceptable.

Question: Why does John Malkovich see all of the John Malkoviches, when entering his own mind?

Chosen answer: I think you just answered your own question! The answer isn't WHY does he see multiple Malkovich's but why not? Think about it. He's entered his OWN mind...what else would he see?

Question: Just after Shrek asks, "What kind of quest?" someone in the background appears to be laughing. Who is it and why is he laughing?

Chosen answer: I ran through the DVD three times and after Shrek says, "What kind of quest?", there is NO laughter at all! He says the line, then there is a quick edit to the next scene where Shrek and Donkey are emerging from a sea of sunflowers. There IS a backround noise of a bird; maybe that is what you heard?

Question: When Hero Boy gets back from the toy room in the train, what were all the kids shouting?

Chosen answer: After "Hero Boy" gets back into the train the kids are all laughing and spouting gibberish. This is often done in post-production when backround noise or talking is necessary. They aren't saying or shouting anything in paticular, just a bunch of kids jabbering on about nothing. I listened to that section three times and it's just gibberish.

Question: What does Riddler sing just before the final fight on the sub?

Chosen answer: The Riddler doesn't sing at all. He yells to the henchmen on board, "Prepare to repell boarders!" He does it in a almost musical way, true, but there's no song.

Question: Did anyone else catch on to what the Russian was doing during his time at the fraternity? I believe he was laying down scent trails to guide the mice to key locations in the building. In one close up of the mice (If I remember correctly) you could see them sniffing the ground and apparently following a scent. How else would you get them all into the building without possibly running in Wesley's direction? It seemed like the mice knew where they were going. Before I submit this as trivia, I want to know if someone else thinks the Russian laid down scent trails.

Chosen answer: I believe it is meant to be assumed that the Russian laid down peanut butter or the scent of peanut butter in strategic points for the rats to follow.

Question: In 'Breaking Free' Troy doesn't look at Gabriella until a few seconds after what should have been the start of the first line. Does this mean that Gabriella should have started the song, but Troy encouraged her by starting the song?

Chosen answer: I'm not positive, but that is what I've always assumed.

Question: I've noticed that Eric Clapton's "Heaven is One Step Away" is on the movie soundtrack. Does it appear in the film, and if so, where?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: The song is playing on the Red's radio while he is lying on the bench outside the Courthouse when Marty arrives back in 1985.

Question: They may have answered this, but how does the island have plumbing, power, and Internet if it is remote and almost completely uninhabited?

Chosen answer: Generator. It's shown several times during the film.

Question: What episode of Jem is this? In it Jerrica who had a secret identity was worried because her boyfriend liked both her and Jem. She got advice from Synergy who told her to become a third identity to test him. She did, and he fell for her too. She was upset until Synergy then said that this actually meant that he really loved her because he must love her soul, because he loved her in any form. I looked up the series on the internet and can't find any episode described this way. Maybe this was a B story of an episode? Could someone tell me what season the episode is in and what the episode is called?

Lori Kaminsky

Chosen answer: This was an episode from Season Three, entitled "Midsummer Night's Madness."

Question: As the Black Pearl arrives at Shipwreck Cove, Tia Dalma and Barbossa have a very confusing conversation. Soon afterward, Barbossa has Tia Dalma sent to the 'brig.' Why would he need to lock her up, when everyone knows she wants to be freed from her human form? (01:29:30)

Chosen answer: She's showing her power over him, and he doesn't like that, seeing that he used to be immortal, and how she is the goddess of the sea. She also poses a threat, as she is what Davy Jones is really after.

Question: In the prologue, Michelle Yeoh put a curse on the Emperor and all who followed him, turning them into terra cotta statues. Her lover, General Min, was still a follower when she cast the spell so why did she do it? I thought she loved him. Can someone explain this to me please? Wouldn't it make more sense if she had placed a curse on the Emperor himself?

Chosen answer: At the point that she cast the spell, General Min's relationship with her had already been discovered, and he was about to be punished, so he would no longer be a follower of the Emperor.

You Only Move Twice - S8-E2

Question: What does Bart mean when he says that the remedial class students have mittens pinned to their jackets all year?

Chosen answer: The only explanation I could find is that some jackets have mittens sewn to them to help prevent the wearer from losing the mittens. Whether this comment is a reflection of the mental state of the children is a possibility.

Question: The 'I'm Dating Matt Damon' song at the end of the film. What is it a spoof of and where can I get the lyrics from?

Chosen answer: It's a spoof of the Sarah Silverman song called "I'm F**king Matt Damon", plenty of versions to view on YouTube

Question: Part of being in the Pegasus galaxy is that the 8th chevron is for travelling across galaxies. They say the first 6 are for the destination, and the 7th is for the point of origin. My question is, how do they always know the 7th symbol for the planet they are on? They always know how to dial out, even under fire, but how do they know the 7th chevron all the time?

Chosen answer: All DHDs have a set of symbols, either 38 or 35, the former being the Milky Way gate system, and the latter being the Pegasus. They each have an individual Point of Origin Symbol, making them have 39 and 36 symbols in total for each set of gates in the different systems. Like a phone, the DHDs and the Milky Way gates have a standard order and placement of the different dialing symbols, with the PO symbol would be placed somewhere, lets say at the top on the outer rim of the DHD, between two of the constellations, always the same.

Question: When Yvette goes to meet Miss Scarlet/Mrs. White when the electricity is off, she loses her French accent. Does this mean she was faking the accent the entire time? If so, why?

Chosen answer: Yes, the accent was fake. She wasn't a French maid, she was a prostitute who used to work for Miss Scarlett. She was hired by Mr. Boddy.
