After the Mold Rush - S8-E6

Question: In Bobby's room, there is a poster of three people in red clothes. Is this supposed to be any real-life music group?

Chosen answer: The poster always remains a bit too out of focus and far away to make a positive identification of who the makers might be referring to but the one thing that can be seen is that it is three women.

Question: I once saw a clip that shows Luanne excitedly telling Hank, Bill, Dale, and Boomhauer about something, and she jumps up and down until her breasts (which aren't shown) come out of her shirt. Was this a deleted scene or a joke made by the show's creators?

Chosen answer: I believe it was a joke. If I remember correctly the scene was once shown on a tv clip show that was showing goof moments from tv shows. As it is an animation it would have to be a joke.

My Sacrificial Clam - S1-E21

Question: Can anyone explain the title of this episode? I understand the wordplay on "sacrificial lamb", but why "clam"?

Chosen answer: The title could be interepreted in relation to the patient who JD is afraid to treat and how the room is closed off like a clam. In the episode the patient has to be quarantined to a seperate room from everyone else and medical staff that enter the room have to take precautions from entering.

Question: Has any episode revealed what Marge's natural haircolor is? In the flashbacks in "The Way We Weren't", she is shown as a child with blue hair, and it turns brown when another girl burns it. However, I saw another episode where she walks past her mirror, notices a brown spot of hair showing, then picks up a can and sprays blue to cover it up.

Chosen answer: I would have to assume that the everchanging answers to many questions of the characters in the show means there isn't any definitive answer to this question. However in the episode when Homer is teaching a "Secrets to a successful marriage" class he mentions that she dyes her hair blue because she has been grey as a mule for a long time. Later on Marge questions Homer about why he revealed she dyed her hair.

Question: How did Larry find out what club Alice/Jane works at? Did he just find her there by coincidence?

Chosen answer: It appears so. Nothing else suggested he knew where she worked. More that he was just going to different clubs and drinking and camed across the club Alice was working at.

Question: I heard that at one point during the part where Marty's being sent back to the future, Doctor Brown is seen putting the letter from Marty in his pocket. Is this true?

Movie_Freak 1

Chosen answer: In the scene where Doc tears it up, he stuffs the pieces into his jacket, because he is distracted by the tree limb that falls and "unplugs" the cable from the Clock Tower. He was likely going to throw the pieces away, but did not have time. We are then led to realize that when Doc got home after Marty left, he found the pieces in his pocket and became curious, thus taping it back together and following Marty's instructions in 1985. On a side note, since Marty comes back to that spot at the end of BTTF 2 to get Doc's help to go back to 1885, Doc had even more time to spend with Marty in 1955, and even more reason to become curious as to the contents of Marty's letter.

Question: TOW the Proposal. Eventually Chandler asks Monica to marry her. Why does Monica say later on that she asked Chandler? (This is when she gives Phoebe advice about her wanting to get married to Mike).

Chosen answer: Because initially Monica set up the room with all the candles etc to ask Chandler, she got down on one knee and then starting crying saying "there's a reason why girls don't do this" so Chandler knelt down too and they kinda asked each other.

Question: Why was Pyramid-Head's name changed to "Red Pyramid" for this film adaptation?

Chosen answer: It is a reference to the red pointed hoods the executioners of Silent Hill wore in colonial times. This is also why the helmet is a pyramid in the game. Since he is never officially named in the game, only referred to by the characters as "Pyramid-Head," the filmmakers were free to come up with their own reference for him. "Red Pyramid" sounds more dramatic than "Pyramid-Head" and it ties the creatures' reason for being into the name.

Question: Virtualy all of the tools that Tim and Al show on Tool Time are the Binford 6100 but obviously different tools each time,was there a joke regarding the number 6100?

Chosen answer: In seasons 1 and 2, each Binford tool had a unique model number, but from season 3 onward, they were all numbered 6100 as a running gag.

Question: I noticed that in several episodes (especially season 6) Daniel is wearing what appears to be the same sweater. Is this just a coincidence or is there some special significance to the sweater?

Chosen answer: As far as I'm aware it's just a sweater, nothing special about it.

Cybermoose

Answer: Agreed with the previous answer, but the sweater is just to set Daniel apart from everyone else while he is ascended.

Question: Presumably, the Genesis Planet was formed out of the dust and gas of the Mutara Nebula. But where did its sun come from?

AidanN

Chosen answer: According to the novelisation of the film the Genesis project was initially designed to be capable of creating an entire solar system. While the focus of the project eventually narrowed down to altering an individual planet, the sub-routines necessary to create a star were still in place and were activated when the device detonated within the nebula.

Elections - S1-E5

Question: At the end of this episode, there is a joke about two nuns in a bar with some soap. Does anyone understand the joke? I can't get it.

Chosen answer: Yes - I think it was two nuns in the bathroom, and one says 'Wheres the soap' and the other one says 'Yes it does a bit'...it's a play on words. The first one is asking a question (Where is the soap) but the other one thinks she is saying 'WEARS the soap'.

Question: To this day, I still don't know what the snake in the bed scene is about. Who's bed is it and who's trying to kill them?

Chosen answer: Commodus had blackmailed Lucilla (by threatening her son, Lucius) into revealing all details in the plot to have him assassinated and he vows revenge on all conspirators, saying he would "Bleed the Senate dry." He sent his own assassins out in the night, who at one point can be heard declaring, "All enemies of the Emperor die!" A poisonous Old World Coral Snake was placed into the bed of Senator Gaius and his female companion, in the extended version of the movie two others were killed when the Praetorians set them on fire and, of course, Proximo was killed when other Praetorians set upon him in his room. Senator Gracchus's life was spared as he had been arrested earlier in the day based on suspicious activity, although it is likely had Commodus lived that he would have had Gracchus put to death, as well.

Special - S1-E14

Question: At one point, Walt is reading out loud from a Green Lantern comic book in Spanish. The only two words I caught were "polar bear". What does the whole Spanish quote translate to in English?

Chosen answer: Green Lantern Kyle Rayner and Wally West (the Flash) are in the arctic to recover an alien ship that was hidden there by the original Green Lantern and Flash. A polar bear rears up behind him and he scares it away with a ring created giant flaming monstrous Santa Claus. Just before he does it, he thinks "Won't Wally look smug when he finds out I wound up as polar bear food."

Question: What was the point of changing Sonya's outfit from her fighting gear to that dress when she is being held hostage?

Chosen answer: It's a villain cliche. When they capture a pretty woman, they will always take her fighting clothes and put her in a sexy outfit.

Small Victories (2) - S4-E1

Question: The sound of the Russian submarine's engine at the beginning seems to subliminally mimic the steady tension-inducing beat of the replicators' theme music, and is occasionally overlaid with a variation of the two main higher notes that are usually played by horns but are played by strings in this instance. I wonder whether this use of the engine sound in place of the normal "replicator beat" was intentional - or perhaps just my imagination?

Chosen answer: As there was no actual engine noise, (it's all added in post production), this was likely done deliberately.

Question: Whatever happened to Morgan's wife and Kate? They are never mentioned by the narrator at the end of the movie.

Chosen answer: Morgan's wife, Louisa "Lou" Earp accompanied Morgan to be buried in California. She remarried Gustav Peters in December of 1885 and died in 1894, at the age of 36, in Los Angeles. Kate "Big Nose Kate" Haroney is thought to have spent time with Doc Holliday during his time in Colorado until his death in 1887. Afterwards, she married a man and moved to a town near Tombstone until she left him for another man. She lived with the other man until his death in 1930 doing odd jobs in hotels and for the railroad. She died in the Pioneer's Home in Arizona in 1940 just a few days before her 90th birthday.

Question: So far, how many siblings (including half-siblings) do we know that Homer has? I can only think of the episode in which his brother gives him a chair, and another one in which a woman who looks like Homer is looking for her long-lost father at an airport, and is seen by Abe.

Chosen answer: Homer has two half siblings, both from his father. Herbert Powell and his half sister in England.

Question: At the beginning of the movie when Lt. Kaffee and Lt. Weinberg are first being assigned to the case by "Division" they both have on 1st LT bars on their right collar. Shouldn't they be wearing Captain bars as the equivalent of Navy Lt is a Captain in all other branches? The Sr. officer in the room is a Captain in the Navy or Col. in other branches and wears the "full bird" on his collar.

Chosen answer: No, as the Navy has two Lieutenant ranks. Lieutenant Junior Grade and Lieutenant. Lt. JG is equivalent to 1st Lieutenant in the other 3 branches. One silver bar is correct.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: A navy Captain is a higher rank than a Army, Marine, or Air Force Captain. In the Navy, "Captain" is pay grade O-6 - the sixth officer rank, and the last one before the Admiral ranks begin. In the Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force, the rank called "Captain" is pay grade O-3, the third officer rank. The O-6 rank for the other three services would be Colonel.
