Show generally

Question: Why was Margret's last name changed from O'Houlihan in the film to Houlihan in the TV series?

Chosen answer: The sheer alliteration makes "Houlihan" a more natural match for "Hotlips" than "O'Houlihan," which the creators of the TV show recognized. The character was based on real-life MASH nurse "Hotlips" Hammerly, which also may have prompted the switch.

Question: Why were the people singing in the streets shot at?

Chosen answer: Because they were singing revolutionary songs. And at that time was strictly forbidden.

Show generally

Question: In the show's theme music, the person who says "Wooooo hoooooo hooooooo" sounds like Dale. Is it him?

Chosen answer: Listening closely, it's not Dale. It's not meant to be anyone from the show.

Question: What was Mickey's motive for being one of the killers?

Chosen answer: Mickey's reply when Syd asks, that he's "always been a follower," indicates he's probably just psychotic, looking for any excuse to kill.

Answer: He hadn't no motive. Remember? It was the millennium. Motives are incidental. That and he was out of his mind. And he wanted to blame the movies.

Alan Keddie

Question: Is there any word that Felicia (the other girl that Peter dates in the TV series) will be in the movies?

Chosen answer: There are no indications of Felicia Hardy showing up any time soon. However in Spider-Man 3 we will meet Gwen Stacy, another one of Peter's girlfriends from the comics.

Show generally

Question: At the end of the last ever episode, when Claire is taking the family photo, Nate whispers in her ear 'You can't take a picture unless it's already gone.' What does he mean by that?

Chosen answer: Nate actually say "You can't take a picture of this, it's already gone." It's kinda hard to explain, but he's referring to the fact that the moment Claire wants to take a picture of is over already, and she can't take a photo of it, just a different, lesser moment.

Question: Is the blind woodsman from a fairy tale or is there some kind of joke about him?

Chosen answer: The woodsman makes Tony guess his name, which is what Rumplestiltskin does to the princess in the fairy tale of the same name. Don't know why he's blind, though.

Question: Why did Billy and Stu want to kill Tatum? I've read that she said Stu was bad in bed, but when does she say this in the movie?

Chosen answer: They didn't have anything against Tatum specifically, her death was just necessary for their scary movie plan against Sidney. They also said that anyone who isn't a virgin dies in a scary movie, and we know Tatum wasn't a virgin.

Question: Just before eating the hydrated pizza, Marty says, "I missed that completely," and then nobody seems to want to take a bite. What did he mean by that, and why did nobody want to eat the pizza?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Bits and pieces were cut out of the dinner scene. When Marty says that, he's referring to a cut scene where Lorraine mentions that Uncle Joey was turned down for parole again. As for the pizza, no one does take a bite but it seems for reasonable enough reasons. Marty Sr appeared as if he was letting the pizza cool off, Marty Jr was trying to get fruit from the overhead fruit holder, and the daughter was answering the phone.

Extreme Aggressor - S1-E1

Question: How did the BAU know who Unsub was? He had e-mailed his victims and created a program that was sent through e-mail to erase all information of who he was and how to locate him, but the BAU did.

Chosen answer: The team told the local police the Unsub would have already injected himself into the case, either coming forward as a 'witness' or volunteering to search for the missing woman. Once they came up with a profile they compared it to everyone who had approached the police about the case and eliminated everyone who didn't match the profile (wrong gender, age, etc.). They didn't explain it very well, and in real life it would have taken much longer so it's easy to get confused.

So how could they create a profile if the UnSub was able to cover his tracks?

Question: Does anyone know the name of the composer who wrote the actual music performed by Lizzie and Georgiana as well as music for the movie itself?

Chosen answer: The composer is called Dario Marinelli, the pianist is Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Marinelli composed the music that Lizzy and Georgiana play. The only thing he hasn't composed is the piece that Darcy and Lizzy dance to at the Netherfield Ball, which is a piece from Henry Purcell.

Question: Can anyone tell me the name of the song played while Sway and Memphis are sitting in the car waiting for the couple in the window to get it on?

Chosen answer: It's called 'Painted On My Heart' by The Cult.

Question: Did Terrance Howard do his own rapping for the film?

Chosen answer: Yes he did. The lyrics for the songs that he raps in the movie were written by the group Three Six Mafia.

Rollin Garcia Jr

Question: What music is being played when Bridget and Eric dance in the bar?

Chosen answer: La Receta by Kemo the Blaxican.

Question: In the movie, there is a song playing as everyone is hunting the vampires (there are a few split-screen images, and they show a few vampire glyphs), could anyone tell me what the name of this song is, and who sings it? The words 'This Blood' are repeated a few times, but I checked that song and it doesn't seem to be the one playing.

Chosen answer: It's "Hard Wax" by Manchild.

Question: How, exactly, does Max die? When Machine rips the tape off his mouth, does he fall forward onto a blade of some type?

Chosen answer: Machine first rips off the tape then slits his throat with a knife he had hidden. If you put the movie in slow play, you will see what I mean.

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: What is the name of song playing as Steve Martin walks into the club to look for Charlene?

Chosen answer: It's called "Way of Life" by Lil' Wayne with Big Tymers and T.Q.

Question: Why did that guy shoot his own friend near the end? Why did the two start shooting in the first place anyway?

Chosen answer: This movie was based on the Columbine High School Massacre, and another high school massacre. There's no answer to "why" they did it.

Question: In the scene where Maggie is putting Cody to bed, why does she look under Cody's nightgown and ask "Where is that mouse?"

Chosen answer: She was just being playful with her, Like the 'I've got your nose' thing.
