Question: After the store is trashed, the daughter of the store owner arrives and starts to sort of freak out about the gun. She seems really afraid that someone might have stolen it, and is then relieved when she finds out that it wasn't stolen. She filled the gun with blanks, and didn't even like her father keeping the gun, so why would she care if it was stolen?

Chosen answer: If someone stole it, they could fill it with real bullets and since the gun is registered to her father, it would make him a suspect if someone used it in a crime.

Question: Cher claims her jeep has dual side airbags. That seems ridiculous for an open top vehicle. Does that model really come with side airbags, or was that supposed to be a 'clueless' comment?

thedoorman

Chosen answer: When she says "dual side", Cher is referring to the driver side and passenger side airbags (which are installed in the dashboard in front of each seat), not airbags on the side of the Jeep (aka in the doors).

Question: In which season and episode is Gallifrey destroyed, or is it just a shocking new plot development for the new series?

Chosen answer: It was never destroyed on-screen; it was intact at the end of the TV movie, and destroyed by the start of the 2005 series. It was destroyed in the novel "The Ancestor Cell," but in a completely different manner to what happened in the series.

Question: When Jack is about to begin drawing Rose and he asks if Cal will be back soon, she says, "Not as long as the brandy and cigars hold out." As this was the common sitting room for Cal's suite and Rose's suite, shouldn't they have been more concerned that Rose's mother would walk in and catch them?

Chosen answer: That wouldn't have been likely because she was with friends and whenever she got together with them they would talk for a while, also it was still early in the night so she probably doesn't go back to her room till a certain hour.

Question: The 2 Lincolns are fighting in the car while trying to outrun the copter. 6 Echo keeps biting Lincoln, and at one point Lincoln says "What's with all the biting?" But that line in not on the DVD. Anyone know why? That was one of my favorite lines in the movie, and it's not on the DVD, I was disappointed.

Nick Bylsma

Chosen answer: Sometimes after the film is released the editors take out things to either help the film or take out mistakes.

Question: In the bathroom, after Chris was killed, Robin's character said "People are dead, Chris is dead, Trey is dead." How and when did Trey die? Or did I just hear incorrectly?

Question: At the end of every series, Blackadder dies. Then he's alive at the start of the next one. Is this the same man? I once heard he's sort of his own descendant. How does it work?

Chosen answer: The Blackadder in each series is a descendent of some description of the previous Blackadder. However, from the second series onwards he is essentially the same person transplanted into a different time and lower social class - mocking the original character's wish to be king by taking him further from the noble life until he becomes simply 'cannon fodder'. Check out Blackadder's Wikipedia entry for pretty much everything you need to know.

Question: I've never understood how, in the comics, Rogue kept the powers she "absorbed" from Ms. Marvel, yet with any other mutant/human she absorbs, the effect is only temporary (as in the films). Can anyone explain this to me?

Chosen answer: The effect of her powers depends on how long she holds onto that individual for - usually she lets go quickly, so absorbs their powers and memories for only a short period of time. With Ms Marvel, Rogue had to hold on for much longer, as Marvel continued to struggle, ultimately resulting in the permanent transfer.

Question: Has New Zealand ever taken advantage (by way of tourism) of the huge success of these films? I mean slogans like "Come to Middle Earth, come to New Zealand" just keep clicking into my mind.

Chosen answer: They did indeed, even going so far as to unofficially appoint a minister, dubbed, inevitably, the Minister for Middle-Earth, to keep tabs on the effects on the economy caused by the increase in business and tourism.

Question: If Orbison did not want Joe to be messed up for the shoot the next day, then why did he abduct Lisa? By doing that, he is going to mess Joe up.

Chosen answer: He means physically messed up. Emotional scars won't show up on camera, but a broken nose or a black eye would.

Question: When we find out about Locke's past, is Locke angry because his Dad just left him or what? I didn't really understand why he was so upset.

Chosen answer: Locke's father him came to him under the guise of wanting to reconnect as father and son, but in actuality was only using Locke to get one of his kidneys for donation. Once he got that he brutally rejected Locke, admitting the con outright and flat out admitting there was no room for Locke in his life nor any desire to make room. He told Locke he never wanted to see him again and when Locke pursued a relationship his father continued to reject Locke outright and finally went as far as to move in the middle of the night.

Question: When Johnny is poking the Thing in his sleep, the Thing puts his hand up to his face, and he gets something that's white and foamy all over his face. What is that stuff, and why was it there?

Chosen answer: It's shaving cream. Johnny was just playing around and trying to annoy the Thing: He put foam on Thing's hand, and then poked him continuously until he would splatter it all over his own face.

Question: Where did the pig's head, that Amanda wears when she stabs Eric, come from? Does it have any significance that I just missed, or is it just another freaky aspect of their twisted game?

Chosen answer: Jigsaw owns the pig's head. He used it in the first film to capture Dr. Gordon and Adam.
