Question: Did anything happen to either of Marge's parents? We almost never see or hear from them, especially her father.

Chosen answer: Marge's mother, Jacqueline Bouvier, has appeared in several episodes, notably "Lady Bouvier's Lover" where she dated both Abe Simpson and Mr Burns. Her father appeared in the episode "Fear of Flying" where Marge revealed that her fear of flying was due to the shame of her father being a flight attendant. It was mentioned in "Bart the Lover" that after leaving the Navy, his swearing almost cost him his job as a baby photographer. Both Marge's parents appear in the flashback episode "The Way We Was" when both Homer and Artie Ziff arrive to take Marge to the prom.

Question: I've heard that X-Men: The Official Game explains the absence of Nightcrawler in the movie. Since I don't have the game, I was wondering what happened.

Chosen answer: In the game, Nightcrawler accompanies the X-men on a series of missions. Completing that, he tells Xavier the life of an X-man is that of violence, while he is a man of peace, and leaves.

Question: Does anyone know where the anime image of a man grinning in the opening theme comes from, or whether it was just created for this montage?

Chosen answer: That image is from the anime cartoon "Nazca".

Theresa Sandoval

Question: Does anyone know where I can listen to the song "Ride Wit Me" performed by "Nelly"? It's heard on the main menu of the DVD, and at the beginning of the credits.

Chosen answer: On Napster.com you can now listen to every song they have up to 5 times each. Alternatively get it from iTunes.

Myridon

Question: On the main DVD menu, and at the beginning of the end credits, there is a song being played. I checked Soundtrack.net and I think the song is "I'm Your Boogy Man" by KC & The Sunshine Band. Is "I'm Your Boogy Man" the correct song, and, if so, does anyone know where I could listen to it?

Chosen answer: It's not listed as being on the soundtrack on IMDB, but on Napster.com, you can listen to every song up to 5 times for free, and they have "I'm your Boogie Man."

Question: Does anyone know how long lions can survive without food?

Chosen answer: According to one website, a lion can gorge for 2-3 days on a kill, rest for 24 hours, and show little interest in hunting again until the sixth day.

Question: When the Hindenburg III docks with the Empire State Building, the newspaper shows early October 1939. Is there any clue as to what went differently in history concerning WWII?

Chosen answer: None.

Question: In the scene where they are discussing the amount of interest owed, at the end Rusty says to Frank, "Don't tell Danny." Explain please.

Chosen answer: They were just discussing going to Amsterdam. In the flashback you see Rusty living with Zeta-Jones, and running away when she was getting close to arresting him. Frank knows about Rusty's history with Zeta-Jones (indeed, Frank was Rusty's partner on the Rome Bulgari's robbery). Zeta-Jones told Rusty she would like to go live in Amsterdam where she has relatives. Frank knows it is dangerous for the pair of them to go back to Amsterdam where probably Zeta-Jones is (Zeta-Jones wastes little time arresting Frank at a nail-salon).

Soylent Purple

Answer: Also, in the scene where Rusty and Isabel first see each other, it is Frank sitting at the table with Rusty. So it's safe to say he was well aware of the relationship from the beginning.

Question: When Aunt May says to Peter in the hospital, "Everyone else knows", why does Peter suddenly look scared/concerned?

Chosen answer: Remember that Green Goblin (Norman Osborne) just found out that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. Aunt May's comment about everyone knows he loves Mary-Jane concerns him because he now realizes that Green Goblin might find/kidnap Mary-Jane just to lure Spider-Man into a fight. This is the basis for the whole reason he can't be with her, as he would be potentially putting her in harm's way all the time if they got together.

Question: What was so important about the song lyrics in the letter Lindsay gave to Helen? What didn't Jenny get when she said that Helen's letter wasn't a letter and that it was just a bunch of nonsensical lyrics?

Chosen answer: Helen's letter was actually the lyrics to the song "Whip It" by Devo. This is the same song that Helen gives to Lindsay for her birthday, along with the funny red hats from the music video. The song is obviously a shared memory between the two sisters, and one that Jenny never was a part of. The fact that Helen's letter was just song lyrics just shows how close the sisters really were.

Ral0618

Question: Who is Max exactly? Does he (she?) have any significance in the movie at all?

Chosen answer: Max is Lindsay Lohan - she doesn't want her dad to know she is racing so when she first has on the racing suit and helmet she says she is Max.

The Snowball Effect / One Krabs Trash - S3-E3

Question: In "One Krab's Trash", near the end Mr. Krab's tries to scare off the hat by using a ghost of a man's name he made up (Smitty Werben Jaegerman Jense.) At first, he pronounces Jaegerman as yay-grr, then just a few seconds later, starts pronouncing it as jayger. Is there a reason for this?

Chosen answer: Mr. Krabs is making up a name on the spot...he wants Spongebob to think that the hat belongs to someone else, so he's just saying a random nonsense name. It's very probable that he could mess up parts of this name, since it's very long and complex.

Movie_Freak 1

Question: When talking about Kenickie's car, Sonny says: "The girls are gonna have to put out, before they get in." What does he mean?

Chosen answer: To "put out" is slang for a girl to give in to sex. A girl who is a slut or sleeps around will sometimes be referred to in such terms as "Betty puts out" (meaning she gives it up easily.) Here in Texas, at least in San Antonio, you still hear that phrase used commonly.

Luna Negra

Question: I know it wouldn't make for a very dramatic ending, but is there no way to get from the centre field seats where Lindsay was in Fenway to Ben's seats along the first line? I mean, couldn't she have just ran along a main concourse?

Chosen answer: At the stadiums that I've been to there are ushers posted at the top of the stairs that lead to seats closer to the field. You can't get down there without showing a ticket for that section. They also show her trying to get to that section and being told she can't go in that gate. Also, she sees through the binoculars that Ben is about to sell his tickets and she wants to create a diversion.

Question: Season 5 episode "My Bright Idea": JD and Turk have something in this episode where one can detect the other if they have a little coin-like thing within 100 feet (Which Turk makes the Janitor eat). What is that thing called, and where can I get it?

Chosen answer: It's called a tracking device. You can probably find one at an electronics outlet.

The Secret Box / Band Geeks - S2-E14

Question: In Secret Box, throughout the whole episode he opens the box and looks at the picture at the 'Christmas party', how is this possible if he has to pull a string and he never does?

Jeffrey Depoalo

Chosen answer: Simple, he kept the photo in the box but not in the secret compartment. We never see the photo and we never know when it was in the secret compartment so it's possible he was looking at it and moved it when he was about to show Spongebob. Even if he wasn't looking at it, Patrick might have just been looking at the string and laughing or even just thinking about the picture. Patrick and Spongebob do in many instances laugh at the simplest things.

Question: At the end of the episode, where Melinda helps that lady (who meets the guy who got her dead fiance's heart), what was the man at the end of the episode (who was laughing and seemed to be a spirit) supposed to be about?

Chosen answer: This "spirit" appears in several episodes throughout the rest of the season including the season finale. He's a "bad spirit" that is intent on keeping souls trapped on Earth. With the death of Andrea (her business partner) he wanted to make a deal with Melinda, to give him HER soul to release everyone else including Andrea to cross over.

Boobra

The List/Haunted Train - S1-E8

Question: Why did that boy steal Arnold's ball? Was that the whole reason he came to the park? He seemed awfully obnoxious and destined to ruin Arnold's day, just wanting more clarity. Thank you.

Chosen answer: The episode doesn't really elaborate on who the kid was and what his motives were, so its pure speculation as to why he took it. Perhaps the kid could simply want a ball all for himself and decided to just take it, or was simply a rotten kid. The truth is the kid's motives are not important to the story other than it highlights Arnold was having a lot of trouble getting through the list.

Question: In the movie they say Lestat was created by Marius but in the books Lestat was created by Magnus. This really bothers me even though I know they did it on purpose. It doesn't seem necessary to the plot so why the change?

Chosen answer: There are already way too many characters in this movie. Adding the character of Magnus who would only be mentioned in passing was probably just considered too confusing.
