Question: What's the name of the song playing when Shaggy puts his head in the record player?

Chosen answer: The song that's playing is "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-lot.

Question: When Paul knocks on Holly's door and she isn't wearing anything, she says to him "would you turn around? Oh, never mind, it's such a silly line anyway - I'll turn around instead." What joke is she referring to?

Chosen answer: Holly is referring to the fact that people often ask others in the room "Will you turn around?" when they are dressing or in the nude, so the person cannot see them naked. She is simply stating she thinks it is odd that the second person is always asked to turn around, when the person herself could turn around.

Question: What is that song by 311 called? I cant find the soundtrack anywhere. And I know it's only on the soundtrack so it's not on any of their CD's.

Chosen answer: According to imdb.com the song is 'Anytime'.

Question: Is there any reference to Chris Redfield or any other Resident Evil character in the movie?

Chosen answer: One that I saw was a reference to Chris Redfield in the newspaper clippings in Jill's apartment. There was also a name on the K-9 Unit in front of the school, but I couldn't see the name clearly.

Question: In the movie, we see several women and children huddled together in a back room away from the fighting, (Almeron's wife and daughter among them). Did Santa Anna's troops kill them as well or were they let go? There was also no mention if Travis' slave (the one who was memorizing something to say in Spanish)was killed as well. While I realize that these characters were minor, one gets the impression that at the end, only Crockett was alive the next morning.

Chosen answer: Historically the women and I believe an infant were freed by Santa Anna, who was a big believer in chivalry, etc... A TV version of the Alamo had the women wanting to fight as well and die but a Mexican officer stops them with the line "Do you only want Santa Anna's version of your husbands' deaths to be known?" One in particular becomes a valuable first person source. Historically the black servant/slave is also spared by the Mexicans. They figure he is a slave and not a willing combatant so they let him go.

Question: Before Admiral Greer shows up to tell Jack about Sean Miller's escape, where were the Ryans planning to go?

Chosen answer: The movie never clearly says. It was some event that required tickets, as the mom runs back into the house to get them. And it was something Sally really wanted to go to, but it is never clear what the event was.

Question: Does Tim Freeman do the voice-over for the new Vauxhall Zafira advert with the two small boys, currently showing on British TV?

omegaman3000

Chosen answer: Yes, though the actor's name is Martin Freeman who plays the character of Tim in The Office.

Question: Why was Greg surprised by the fact that Kevin and Bob went to lacrosse camp?

Chosen answer: Greg was probably surprised at just how "richy" they really are. Because lacrosse camp seems like a really rich, preppy thing to do. But mainly, I think he was suprised because he did not know that his girlfriend's ex and his girlfriend's sister's fiance knew each other. He didn't realize how connected they all were.

Question: Why did the REAL Pike pick Kapler up and take him out? Was it a plan of Section 8 or what?

Chosen answer: It added to the plan of section 8, in that they were successfully able to stage two contradicting stories and source further incriminating evidence about the doctor and Colonel. By having Kapler there, they were able to see who would make an attempt on his life, the Colonel, and completely shut down the drug smuggling operation.

A Witch's Tail (1) - S5-E1

Question: Does anyone know why all 3 Sisters are wearing white, just before Phoebe turns into a mermaid? Are they making some statement?

Chosen answer: I don't think so. I think it was just the clothes that the show's costume designer picked.

Question: Can someone explain how all the special effects were done, such as the electronic blasters rays, and the sound effects? As the film was from 1956 there were no electronic keyboards then and the sounds are very futuristic.

Chosen answer: Many of the sound effects use an electictronic instrument called a theremin which was invented in 1919. You may hear it used more musically in The Beach Boys song "Good Vibrations." The visual effects would have been animated composites as used in Star Wars and Ghostbusters.

Myridon

Question: On the planet crematorium it is 700 degree Fahrenheit in the light and -300 degree Fahrenheit in the dark. There is some kind of atmosphere with at least oxygen for people (they swap air). And there are volcano's blowing CO2 in that atmosphere. Why does the temperature change that much with a atmosphere like that?

Chosen answer: It wouldn't, this is a very good example of extremely bad science. For the temperature to change like that there would have to be no atmosphere, never mind a breathable one.

A Night At The Katz Motel / Canjun Granny Stew - S1-E1

Question: Does any one know where I can get a MIDI, WAV, or MP3 of that drum beat that plays when Katz walks?

Chosen answer: There don't seem to be many websites with sounds from the show but you may have better luck requesting it on one of the message boards or forums on the show. One site that may be worth trying is http://couragede.tripod.com/courindex.html that has a lot of multimedia, sounds and a message board of the show.

Lummie

Question: In the UK there was a children's programme called 'SMTV Live', on this programme they had a competition where the winner could have a small part in Shrek 2. Does anyone know who won and what part they play?

Chosen answer: A young girl named Victoria Glover won the part. She doesn't have a credit on IMDB but all I know is the line she recorded for the film was "Star maps, get your star maps".

Lummie

Question: When Sandra Bullock's character sings, is it really Sandra Bullock singing?

Chosen answer: According to IMDB, Sally Dworsky was the singing voice for Miriam, who was Sanda Bullock's character.

Hamster

Show generally

Question: I remember watching two particular episodes when younger, and are curious to know what the titles of the episodes were called. One was about a doll that came alive and the other about the trees coming alive, and the tree roots etc. killing people. What are the episode titles of those two?

Hamster

Chosen answer: The tree root episode is season five, episode nine and is called Schizogeny. And the doll one sounds like it could be the very next episode (season five, episode 10) called Chinga.

Gunshow - S10-E1

Question: In regards to the judge's rules for the case at the end with the gun manufacturers, can someone explain what he McCoy had to prove? It was something about that he had to prove that the gun manufacturer designed the gun to made as was the use. Does this mean they had to prove it was going to be used for deadly force because of the fault in the guns? It just sounded strange because they were gun manufacturers so I wasn't too sure why they had to prove that.

Lummie

Chosen answer: McCoy had to prove that the gun manufacturers knew that they gun was being used illegally and that all it took was a simply adjustment. He had to prove that they knew that they (the gun manufacturers) would sell more guns because of the faulty design.

Question: Did the Warden know about the "Randall Stevens" character? At first it would seem that he didn't, since Andy used the identity to clean out the bank accounts and escape to Mexico. On the other hand, how could the Warden make deposits and withdrawals (before Andy's escape) from his bank accounts without noticing?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: He probably only knows the name. He doesn't want to know anymore, so he can pin the blame on Andy should anything go wrong. He no doubt hasn't even considered that Andy might have ID so he can access the accounts after his escape.

The One With Barry & Mindy's Wedding - S2-E24

Question: In the episode where Richard and Monica break up at Barry and Mindy's wedding, we see that Chandler is chatting on the computer with a girl (that ends up being Janice). When Joey comes in and Phoebe tells him that they are wondering whether or not the girl Chandler is talking with is actually a girl. Joey says, "Ask her how long she is going to live. Girls live longer" and Chandler says, "Why don't you fall down more?" What does he mean?

Chosen answer: Joey has just made an incredibly stupid remark (how would she know how long she's going to live?), so he wonders how Joey is even smart enough to walk. It's just a joke.

Shay

Question: Was the doctor (the owner of the sailboat in the beginning) in on Laura's planned disappearance? Or was the bad weather just a coincidence and gave her the chance to escape? Just though it was weird because her husband commented that she only gets on a boat like once a year, so I don't know how she could have planned her escape so perfectly.

weetie21

Chosen answer: No, the doctor was not in on her plan. She had her escape planned for a long time, but was waiting for the right time. The stormy weather on the boat provided the "perfect" time for her to put her plan into action.
