Question: Does anyone know how the effect of Kermit riding the bicycle was done?

Chosen answer: The closest thing to an answer is here, Martin Becker's obituary. His family states that it was a robotic Kermit on a bicycle. Outside of that, everyone else associated with the movie has been quiet on the subject.http://www.fridaythe13thfilms.com/saga/part5/martinbecker.html.

They used gyros in the wheels - Martin Becker made the first self-driving bike for that movie-now the same tech is used in the self-driving bikes seen in the Netherlands. -Diana Becker, Martin's widow.

Question: In the new Cartoon Wars episodes, nothing is said and nothing happens when the boys are in the King Of The Hill part of the studio. Is there a joke behind this?

Chosen answer: In King Of The Hill, Hank and his friends usually stand around at the front of his house, drinking beer and saying nothing. The joke is a reference to this.

Question: At the very end of the movie, before the credits, with Magneto playing chess, did he manage to move or knock over the chess piece?It cut to black too quickly for me to see. Were they trying to show that the cure was not permanent?

Spaceboy_007

Chosen answer: The piece did move, very very slightly. I'd argue that the cure is generally permanent, but perhaps with someone of Magneto's power the X gene can't be permanently suppressed, and will slowly regenerate itself through his body, gradually restoring him to full strength.

Question: When Jack and Carl are looking at the map, and one of them says "What's that?", we get a close-up of what looks like a blob to me. What do they see in the image?

Chosen answer: They see what looks like the face of a gorilla, but they conclude that it must be a skull for Skull Island.

Question: According to movietome.com, Red Eye would be spoofed. I didn't see anything relevant to Red Eye in this movie (except the crashed plane, but that was in War of the Worlds), but I might be wrong, so was there any references?

Chosen answer: The spoof of "Red Eye" was dropped, there is no reference.

Question: Do we know if Peyton's husband was really molesting his patients? I can't tell if he killed himself out of guilt, or because he was depressed that he had been accused of something like that.

Chosen answer: Yes, Dr. Mott was molesting his patients, as was seen when he slipped off his plastic glove just before performing a pelvic exam on Clair. After Clair reported Mott to the authorities, a number of other women came forward and their accusations were made public. Mott never showed any remorse, and it appears he committed suicide because he was unable to face the ensuing scandal and criminal investigation.

Question: How do you pronounce Jewel Staite's (Kaylee) last name?

Chosen answer: State.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Does anybody know what music the Mexicans are playing in their car? I like it.

Chosen answer: It is a cut/mix of "So Ruff, So Tuff" by Roger Troutman (lead singer of Zapp). I think this is a extended mix of it. It contains the beginning of Zapp's biggest hit "More Bounce to the Ounce" which was off their first self-titled album "Zapp" (1980). This has been used and sampled in Hip Hop songs for over 20 years. Roger Troutman put out his first solo album the next year in 1981 (Many Facets of Roger). This contained the single "So Ruff, So Tuff".

Question: Is it ever established what Geoffrey's surname is?

Chosen answer: At wikipedia.org Geoffrey's full name is listed as Geoffrey Barbara Butler. According to one episode, Geoffrey was an Olympic runner who had cheated during a run; the video of this incident that the family watches confirms Geoffrey's last name is Butler.

Question: After the dog and Prince Wendell have been switched, why does the Queen even care about having the dog (who is really Prince)? She doesn't know that Tony can talk to him, so as far as she knows, no one can understand the dog at all. Why would she be concerned?

Chosen answer: Because if Wendell and the switched dog somehow came in contact with each other then they would switch back. She does not want to risk this happening.

Scrappy

Question: When Hannibal is in his exercise cell talking to Will he speaks a few lines in a different accent. Why does he do this?

Chosen answer: It's not unusual for someone to do this to emphasize a particular point, to be sarcastic, or just show off. Lecture was a master manipulator and loved being the center of attention. By slipping into an accent for a few sentences, he jars the listener’s attention.

Question: I must've missed it during the movie - how exactly does V kill the people from the facility? I'm pretty sure it has something to do with poison, but I didn't quite get it. Also, I'm not sure if it's tied-in, but what is the whitish-orange stuff left on the floor next to most of the victims' heads?

Chosen answer: He poisons them, and they throw up.

Matt Lynch

Question: What is the significance of the man in Hell who thinks Chris is his son?

Chosen answer: Just to show what hell does to your mental state.

Question: In Episode II, the symbols on the Republican ships had eight spikes on them. In this episode, there are only six. Why did the symbol change? It cannot be due to the forming of the Empire because we can see the changed symbols early in the movie, before the Empire is formed.

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: The symbol seen in Episode II is the general all-purpose symbol of the Republic. The symbol seen in Episode III (which also happens to be the symbol of the Empire) is the designation for wartime. War was only declared at the end of Episode II, the old symbols had simply not been repainted.

Question: The round conference table on Geonosis (where Dooku is updating the other separatists) looks an awful lot like the symbol of the Empire, especially when viewed from above. Is this intentional?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Yes.

Question: Is it ever stated how the people act once Sam leaps out of them? Presumably the person leaps back into their place, but wouldn't they be confused initially and then just go back to acting the same way?

Gary O'Reilly

Answer: In "Double Identity", Sam leaps from Frankie to Don Geno when the blackout hits and we see how Frankie responds to returning. He appears to have no memory of the time he was displaced and thinks it is the moments just after when he left the day before.

Chosen answer: No, it is never stated. The person does leap back in so your assumption is as good as any.

Question: After John and Jane killed all those people, wouldn't their boss send more people after them? And why don't the Smiths fear/anticipate/react to this fact/possibility? Is it me or does it seem the only way they could have a happy ending is die or they have to kill the boss and destroy all their records (Which they would probably die trying).

Chosen answer: The boss probably decided to stop wasting resources on a lost cause.
