Question: This may seem morbid, but does anyone know how Kurt put those scars on himself?

Chosen answer: Since he is a demon and does have sharp nails he could have easily done it to himself. I would think that he would have used his tail to do the ones that are located on his back and so forth. But to me his scars resemble that of a burn scar as if untreated it will "bubble" slightly if the burn is bad enough. Say for instance a cow being branded!

Question: In the film, is it mentioned why the killer left pictures of Maureen Prescott after each death?

Chosen answer: He's giving hints to who he is. Remember, the killer is Roman, Maureen's illegitimate son. She had him during a time in her life that no one else knew about, so the the pictures are Roman's way of leading everyone to what eventually becomes obvious.

Question: What's the ending in the UK version of the film? Is it different from the US version?

Chosen answer: The boy/mouse goes back to England with his Grandmother and he tells her that he managed to get all the Grand High Witch's money and book of witches. Then a witch comes along and changes him back to a boy.

Chosen answer: It's "When you say nothing at all" by Ronan Keating.

Christoph Galuschka

Question: What is the name of the first song in the end credits? It sounds a lot like it's by Shania Twain.

Chosen answer: It is, it's called "You've got a Way".


Question: Does anybody know what city or state this takes place in?

Chosen answer: Covington, Pennsylvania. They live in the middle of Covington Woods.

Nature Pants / Opposite Day - S1-E9

Question: In "Opposite day", SpongeBob and Patrick starts talking, but nothing is understood. I think they're talking backwards. What are they saying?

Chosen answer: They are talking backwards, here is what they say: (*both laugh*) Spongebob: To get to the OPPOSITE side! - Patrick: I give up! -Spongebob: Hey, Patrick!


Question: I understand why Ocean's group had to botch the heist at the end but why did they have to drag Tess into it if they already had the real egg? This would have removed the interesting twist where Julia Roberts plays Julia Roberts but other than that the second heist attempt seems unnecessary. Am I missing something?

Chosen answer: As evidenced from the first film and the sequel Danny Ocean was meticulous about every part of his heists and these botched attempts would fool Toulour into thinking they were failing to steal the "fake" egg. If the crew didn't make any attempts Toulour would know something was up. This was a large wager they had going between them and Toulour would be very suspicious as to why they weren't trying to steal the egg. Making them very public just enforced the fact that the crew had probably failed.


Question: What was the name of the music piece during the final car chase, the one where Bourne smashed Karl Urban's car into the wall, killing him and is it on the soundtrack?

Chosen answer: The final car-chase music is called 'Bim Bam Smash' and yes, it is on the soundtrack.


Question: When Galadriel was handing out special gifts to the Fellowship, why wasn't Boromir given a gift?

Chosen answer: In the book, Boromir does recieve a gift from Galadrial, a belt of gold. But as far as the movie goes, you're right. Everyone except Boromir recieves a gift. Perhaps the filmakers wanted to get the point across that Galadrial had a sense of forboding from the start about Boromir betraying the fellowship. And she felt Boromir should not recieve a gift? Or, since each of the fellowship recieves a gift of some significance that comes in handy later in the trilogy, they felt it not necessary to show Boromir recieving his gift since he dies soon after at Amon Hen.

Question: I heard that the famous scene where Jim Carrey makes "the most annoying sound in the world" was an ad lib. Any truth to this?

Chosen answer: Apparently yes, he ad-libbed that line. There were a few other instances in the film where he supposedly adlibbed including the man on the moon line, and when he eats the condiments after eating the chillis.


Question: I was talking with a friend and we were trying to figure out why the little birds and black hawks took off from the base and arrived at the city in such a tight and uniform formation. Wouldn't this have been a clear sign from miles away the Americans were up to something?

Chosen answer: While its minor, the militia does pick up that the Americans are up to something and they call each to warn everyone the Americans are heading their way. The best explanation as to why the helicopters and black hawks took off altogether was they wanted to give the militia as little time to organise an offense. The Americans' plan was to have helicopters land many of the troops on the ground to capture the prisoners and to give cover to the troops travelling by armored vehicles. As the film shows the Americans under-estimated the Somalians and their plans from the beginning were very questionable. In the film Tom Sizemore's character goes into detail after the briefing about all the problems including going in the day instead of night.


Homer's Barbershop Quartet - S5-E1

Question: In the scene where the fans turn against Chief Wiggum in Moe's Cavern, Moe says something to the Be Sharps manager about paying girls to scream. When the manager says "I didn't pay any girls to scream" Moe has a shocked look on his face and then turns off the Cavern's neon light and drives away fast. I've tried very hard but cannot get this joke. Can anyone explain it to me?

Chosen answer: Not as much a joke as it is Moe is so surprised that this small, unknown band is gaining that much support without needing to pay them to do so.


Question: Which three books did the time traveller take?

Phillip Churchfield

Chosen answer: It is specifically not stated which three books he took with him, leaving it open to audience speculation.


Question: Was Patrick Stewart ever considered or asked to play the role of The Hood? Considering his Star Trek connection with director Jonathan Frakes, it would have seemed like an ideal piece of casting.

Chosen answer: I did hear that Patrick Stewart was on the short list of actors to play the role, but he was in demand of both stage and film. He may have been doing X2 at the time.

Question: When Marty is playing "Johnny B. Goode", he is doing guitar moves from different performers. What performers is he imitating?

Chosen answer: It seems to me that he is imitating the following: Chuck Berry (which makes sense), Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen and Pete Townsend (the kicking the amp bit.)

Daniel Wilkie

Question: What did Dolarhyde mean in his letter to Lecter that if Lecter responds next time Dolarhyde will send him something wet?

Chosen answer: It means he will send Lecter a fresh body part from one of his victims.


Question: How did Reese know that Sarah was at the Tech-Noir bar. Is there a deleted scene with Reese where he finds out where she is or was it luck.

Chosen answer: It's all in the film - Reese tails Sarah from the moment that she leaves her apartment. He's waiting outside the bar that she's in when she sees the news report and follows her down the road when she leaves - she sees him and gets scared, which is when she ducks into Tech-Noir. He sees her go in, then walks past, before turning back and entering himself.


Question: In real life, would Drago have faced criminal charges after killing Apollo in the ring? After all he did it on purpose.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Not really because he only intended on physically punishing Apollo, as do most fighters do when they are in a fight. In real life if Drago had pushed the ref aside like he did in the fight, it would have been stopped right then and there, and maybe Apollo would have lived.

Question: Is Anakin more powerful than Yoda, considering he did defeat count Dooku, which Yoda couldn't do.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Well, we don't know whether Yoda could have defeated Dooku or not, as Dooku resorted to trickery in order to get away - by trying to drop the column onto Anakin and Obi-Wan, then escaping while Yoda's attention was diverted. As such, the battle was inconclusive, although the fact that Dooku had to cheat in order to escape does seem to indicate that he himself doubted his ability to defeat the Jedi Master. As such, we can't really determine whether Anakin or Yoda had the higher power level from their respective battles with Dooku - a more telling indicator would be that Obi-Wan, who is, at best, on level terms with Yoda and is, to be honest, probably less powerful, was ultimately able to defeat Anakin.
