Question: At the end of the film, when Jack dies, one of Davy Jones' crewmembers says, "Not even Jack Sparrow could best the devil," and suddenly Jones becomes worried and demands to see the heart in the chest. Why did he get so worried?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Jones knows that Sparrow is a cunning adversary - while he knows that the Kraken has taken Jack into the Locker, his crewmember's words have suddenly put an element of doubt in his mind. Has he really beaten Jack completely, or has Jack pulled off some last minute trick involving the heart to spite him? Hence his sudden desire to check on the heart, to make sure that it's safe.

Question: This is for the movie and the comics. Can Jon hear Garfield? I'm asking because in the comics, Jon responds to what Garfield says, but Garfield's speech is always in thought bubbles. But in the movie, Garfield's lips are moving. Can someone please explain?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Jon makes educated guesses in the comics based on Garfield's body language and surroundings, he doesn't actually hear Garfield in either medium.

Question: Can someone please explain to me what Violet says when she frees them from the prison? No matter how many times I see this movie, I still don't get it.

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: She says "Well, I think Dad has made excellent progress today, but I think it's time we wind down now". It's a joke, pretending to be winding down a counselling session, based on the fact that her father has been baring his soul a bit while imprisoned.

Question: I never understood what happened to Kurt Wagner in the end. Did he stay in the mansion?

Chosen answer: For a while, yes, but at some point, he leaves because the X-men are too violent and he prefers a peaceful life.

Question: What was going on with John Michael Kane's body in the morgue? Nicky said that Wombosi saw the body and didn't buy it. Were they trying to pass off the dead man as Bourne?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Yes, exactly. Kane is one of Bourne's identities and apparently one that he used extensively during the preparations for the mission to eliminate Wombosi. Wombosi goes to see the body, but, having seen Bourne, albeit relatively briefly, realises that the body in the morgue is not the same man.

Question: In one of the previous questions answered, it mentioned the ending originally panned down to show the Ruby Slippers near Dorothy's bed and thus confirming she didn't dream the whole story. I was just wondering if there's a youtube link or movie clip of this scene?

Chosen answer: Actually, all of the information points that the scene never existed. The movie deals with Oz as being an escape, a dream land. The book deals with Oz being a real place visited by Dorothy. Finding the shoes under the bed sounds like something from the book, but it isn't there either. The slippers are lost forever in the book.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wizard_of_Oz_%281939_film%29http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wizard_of_Oz_book_to_film_comparisonhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wonderful_Wizard_of_Oz

Question: I keep hearing about the mistake where Harry says there is twenty four hour's worth of Felix Felicis in the bottle, when there is in fact twelve. But I checked for it and he says 'all twelve hours' worth'. Is this mistake only in the American edition (I have the British)?

Chosen answer: This mistake was corrected in later printings, so you may have the corrected version of the book.

Question: Both the main characters are named after cowboys, Dalton and Wade Garrett. Was this intentional?

Chosen answer: Only in the sense that the writer wanted them to have very masculine names.

Jason Hoffman

Question: In the scene in the library, where Elle gets turned away from Vivian and Warner's study group, she and Enid get into an argument, where Enid remarks, "Like when you called me a dyke and then voted against me?" to which Elle then accuses Vivian of saying it. What scene are they talking about?

Chosen answer: It's not a scene in the movie, and presumably didn't actually happen as Elle protests her innocence.

Treehouse of Horror XIII - S14-E1

Question: In "Island of Doctor Hibbert", when the fox around Hibbert's necks turns out to be Mr. Burns, why are Lisa and Bart so delighted to see him?

Chosen answer: I think Bart & Lisa are happy about Mr. Burns being unable to do anything to them, as they have a bad history with him.

Louise Newman

Question: I'm still confused about something. Why was Fiona turned into an ogre in the first place? All she says is that a witch cast a spell on her, but they never mention it again.

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: The Fairy Godmother curses her so that her son, Charming, can free her and become king. This is made clear in the second movie.

Day 4: 6:00 P.M.-7:00 P.M. - S4-E12

Question: In this episode, Jack is at the offoces of McClennon/Forrester and realizes they are going to set off an EMP to destroy all the computer hardware. Jack tries to stop it and realizes he cannot. Just as the EMP goes off, Jack crouches behind a door for protection and screams as the EMP goes off. However later, Audrey is told the EMP would not harm Jack or Paul. It would only affect all electronic devices. So why would Jack need to find protection behind a door and why would he need to scream when the device went off?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: The device is an EMP that is in development and, as such, may not be stable. While its true that an EMP in itself is harmless to people, there may be electrical discharges or shorts from the device itself that could harm a person, hence Jack takes cover. As for his scream, its not a scream of pain, but a scream of frustration at not being able to stop the EMP going off.

Question: I still can not understand, why didn't Troy start singing when they were to perform "Breaking Free"? How did Troy know that Gabriella was too nervous to sing if the first verse was Troy's?

Chosen answer: Because he noticed how terrified Gabriella was and tried to console her.

Question: I'd like to know what happens to Pyro in the final battle. He is knocked pretty good on the head by Iceman, so does he get obliterated by Phoenix? Also, once Professor X has transferred himself into the body of the other man, why does his voice still sound the same?

Chosen answer: Pyro's fate is unclear in the film, although the novel (which differs in places from the film and therefore may not be canonical) states that Iceman dragged him clear of the battle site after defeating him. As for the voice sounding the same, it's suggested that, should there be a fourth film, the comatose patient will turn out to be Xavier's twin brother (a departure from the comics, where Xavier has a twin sister), thus allowing Patrick Stewart to return to the series if he wishes to.

Show generally

Question: Was Doyle written out of the show because of Glenn Quinn's death, or was that a decision made well before?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: Quinn didn't die until three years after being written out of the show. According to Joss Whedon, the character, while popular, simply failed to mesh well with the pre-existing characters brought across from the Buffy series, and the reluctant decision was taken to write the character out of the series; it was also mentioned by producer David Fury that Whedon liked the idea of messing with the audience a bit by introducing a main cast member, then defying expectations by killing them off swiftly, although he also mentioned this was not the original intent with Doyle.

Question: I love the music throughout the movie, and my favorite is the one techno song with some sort of foreign-language lyric playing as the brothers are walking across town to the Copley Plaza Hotel. I have searched high and low for this song, and cannot seem to find it anywhere. Can anyone tell me the name of it?

Chosen answer: The song is titled "Indigino" it's a foreign techno song by "The Chidros".
