Question: In a trivia, they say Timon is pulling a bug out of a log and a bug is wearing a mickey mouse hat. I looked but couldn't find it. Could someone give me the scene and what kind of bug to look for?

Chosen answer: Right after Timon pulls the bug out of the log he offers Simba a leaf. Look on the bottom (left, I think) of the leaf for the bug.

Question: Who did the paintings that Colonel Potter was always working on?

Chosen answer: Its been said that Harry Morgan or Gary Burghoff actualy did the pictures, from a M*A*S*H special.

Question: I've read every thing on the Internet i can find and i still don't completely understand the plot. Every explanation leaves questions, such as how does Jimmy (the boyfriend of Natalie that Lenny kills) know about Sammy (he mutters 'Sammy' as he's being dragged down the stairs). How does Natalie know about Lenny (the first time he goes into the bar she says something along the lines of 'you're the memory guy' which suggests she knew he was coming). Can anyone answer these questions or let me know a site where the whole thing is explained?

Chosen answer: There's an official web site: http://www.otnemem.com/, as well as one written by Chris Nolan, Jonathan's brother (Understanding Memento): http://www.christophernolan.net/memento_un.php. There's also very good Movie FAQ here: http://www.designpattern.org/wp/?page_id=13.

Question: Why is there an alternative U.S ending (special feature on the UK DVD version)?

Chosen answer: In previews to American audiences there were lots of comments that it was not a good ending (not romantic enough) so they filmed an ending with Darcy and Lizzie kissing to make it more romantic. The ending in other countries matches the original ending of the book.

The Old Order Changes - S5-E4

Question: When everyone is having the meeting about adapting their approach to customers in an American fashion. Captain Peacock says that he heard that Austin Reeds had an unusual position. What was it?

Chosen answer: He actually said that they had an "interesting position," which doesn't refer to any job in particular but is merely a set-up for Mr. Humphries' innuendo-laden response: "That rumor's been going around for some time."

But what is the "interesting position"? That is what I want to know. Does it mean that employees at Austin Reeds often dress up to try and get more customers or something else?

Question: In Randy's recorded message, he says that "Return of the Jedi" and "Godfather part 3" both reveal something that turns out to be a lie. Of what events is he speaking?

Chosen answer: In "Return of the Jedi," Obi-Wan told Luke the truth about his earlier statement, that Darth Vader murdered his father. In "The Godfather Part 3," we learn that Sonny had a son by the woman he'd been having an affair with in the first film.

Question: What is the name of the melody/song that is played just after Michael shoots Sollozzo and McCluskey? It is played while you see some newspapers with big headlines etc.

Chosen answer: The mattress montage music is called "This Loneliness." It is written and performed by F.F.C's father.

Question: Has anyone tried to really find out what era it was to have taken place in? The Apprentice thing blares obvious, almost intentional. The rest of the comments about the monitor in the hospital and stuff also seem to date the time period. The bigger items that make it seem like the 70's or early 80's are the cars and the phone that Frank has which is very 70's/80's at best. In 2004 hospitals are so far advanced in every part of the country. I believe things like monitors tied into nurses stations and alerts not being able to be turned off locally within it notifying someone can't happen. That has been the case for some time.

Chosen answer: It takes place in modern times. The hospital room is in a smaller hospital or in a wing specifically for people who need assistance living, so there's no need for all of the extra equipment found in an ICU or ER hospital room. The screens are all latest-technology and can't be more than 5 years old.

Question: After watching "Donnie Darko" I watched another film which also featured a character identical to Frank. He too appeared in the dreams of the lead role and had all the traits of Frank. I am pretty sure it was not the film "Harvey", as I do not believe it was a film as old as that. Can anyone help me identify what the other film was?

Chosen answer: I believe this film may have been 'Sexy beast' starring Ray Winstone. It's a British film, and is even listed on the IMDb as similar to Donnie Darko in this sense. In 'Sexy Beast' a human height sized bunny rabbit stalks the dreams of the lead character, played by Ray.

Question: What is the meaning of the scene with the hooded blond woman throwing her child in the street? Frankie sees her, starts yelling, and the scene creates a mysterious mood, but I don't really see any connection to the plot.

Chosen answer: Earlier in the movie Frankie thinks she's pregnant and is contemplating abortion. Hence the throwing the child away reference here.

Question: What is the song played at the credits (the one that is also played when Charlie travels with Irene from Rhode Island), and who sings it?

Question: Why doesn't Isobel's dad ever find out about Iris being what she is?

Chosen answer: Because she's put him under her spell without him realising.

Question: What is the name of the song on the TV in Craig's house?
