Question: When Robert the Bruce is talking to the nobles at the begining of the movie, what is the significance of him seeing his dad up above on the balcony and saying that his dad couldn't be there in person, but sends his regards?

Chosen answer: The significance is that his Dad is not away on business he is very sick and hiding. I would imagine both he and his dad think that their position would weakened if the other nobles new his dad was sick and probably going to die soon.

Question: When he starts his first film, Dirk is presumably 17. Isn't it illegal for anyone under 18 to be in a porn film?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: It is illegal, but that doesn't mean that it's not possible for him to get away with it. Tracy Lords was under 18 when she first started making porn.

Jane Doe

Question: I didn't understand the rationale of Jim releasing the infected soldier Mailer into the mansion, since he knew the women were still inside, unprepared and unarmed. Anyone got a good reason why he did it?

Chosen answer: He also knew that the women were in an interior room, upstairs, with the door(s) closed; and that Mailer was much more likely to encounter/eliminate the other soldiers who were downstairs and mobile first. He was probably gambling - correctly, as it turned out - that he'd be able to make it upstairs and either rescue the women or eliminate Mailer before they were harmed.

Brush With Greatness - S2-E18

Question: Can someone explain why Marge frowns when the art teacher is explaining The Lombardo theory, the one where he says "And here we have an adorable little bunny rabbit. It's just that easy." Why Marge seeming upset with what he just said? The reaction shot is a couple of seconds so I am assuming there is something that I must have missed.

Lummie Premium member

Chosen answer: I think it's because the art teacher is making it seem so easy when in fact it is really quite difficult. I think the line he says is something like "Yes, even a rhombus can create an adorible little bunny rabbit" - it's obviously much harder than just putting shapes together. It could also be an inside joke by the animators maybe - Marge could be frowning because it's not 'that easy' to create an animation (which she is, obviously) and could just be a joke. Knowing the Simpsons, this wouldn't be too far-fetched.

Question: Maybe I'm missing something, but why is it such a big deal that Trinity and Morpheus have to take the freeway when they're trying to escape with the Keymaker? Link reminds them that it's never been done, suggesting it's an incredibly risky manoeuvre, but why is this?

Shay

Chosen answer: Well, when they're on the freeway everybody in the cars are potential agents...the reason it's so dangerous (as opposed to, say, going by foot) is that agents in large vehicles are obviously more dangerous than agents on foot. The agents fear nothing, which is shown when the two agents in the lorries collide with each other. There are also fewer avenues of escape.

Question: Can anyone tell me where Gogo gets the ball and chain weapon from? She carries a short-bladed sword with her into the nightclub. There's no place on her skimpy schoolgirl outfit to conceal the bulky ball and chain. Is this a mistake?

Chosen answer: No, no mistake. The House of Blue Leaves is obviously a hangout for O-ren and the Crazy 88, seeing how so many of them are there, and the familiarity they show with the place. It would only be natural for Gogo to have some backup weapons hidden away there, since she knows they come there often and stay for some time.

Twotall

Question: What song is playing right after the "costume" party?

Chosen answer: That song is "Watch Me Shine" Performed by Joanna Pacitti. It is on the soundtrack.

Question: Was the candy in Honeydukes real and, if so, what happened to it at the end of shooting?

Chosen answer: Some of the candy was real and was eaten by the actors, and later film crew. The rest was props. I assume excess candy was just trashed after a while.

Mark English

Question: What could possibly be the purpose of the photograph that was placed on the box in the wall? If it was there, then Lawrence was supposed to take it with the box together - but he fails to notice it. Was that their only chance to get out of there alive or what?

Chosen answer: There was no photograph on or in the box on the wall. The contents were: A cell phone, 2 cigarettes, a lighter and a note. The picture was in Lawrence's wallet which told them to look for the X on the wall.

Question: Who were the Army of the Dead and why do they hate everyone?

Chosen answer: During the War of the Last Alliance (the battle against Sauron shown in the prologue), the men who inhabited the White Mountains (those between Gondor and Rohan) swore an oath of allegiance to Isildur. When he called on them to fight, they refused, so Isildur cursed them to walk the paths of the Dead until they redeemed themselves. In time, they all died, but their spirits remained - they were unable to move on to whatever awaits men after their deaths. At the time of the War of the Ring, they've been in this state for three thousand years, which has left them with a deep hatred for the living. Only when Aragorn, Isildur's heir, comes to them and calls upon them to finally fulfil their original oath, are they finally able to move on.

The One After Vegas - S6-E1

Question: In the breakfast scene, Joey is informed that it is a self-serve buffet, and he says "This is where I win my money back." What does this mean? Does he intend to place bets with people about how much he can consume?

Chosen answer: He means he will eat so much of the casino's food that it will make up for the money that he lost to the casino by gambling.

Show generally

Question: For episode 15 of season 11, "Alone in a Crowd", NBC's website lists that Ming-Na stars. However I never saw her in the episode and she's no longer included in the opening credits, hasn't been for several episodes. Can anyone point out to me where in the episode she appeared?

Chosen answer: She is no longer on the show - her last episode was "Twas the Night". They must have not yet taken her out of the opeing credits.

Question: Does anybody know that last name of the family. I have watched almost every episode and I don't think it has ever been mentioned.

Chosen answer: There has been speculation that the last name of Malcolm and his family is "Wilkerson." The name appeared in the title of the pilot script, but Linwood Boomer who wrote the pilot script says the family name has never been disclosed because they didn't want the family to fall into any specific ethnic group. Although on the DVD cover, the episode information refers to them as Wiskerson.

Randy DeShong

Question: How much of the cursed tape do you have to watch to become cursed with the "seven days" threat? All of it? Or would even seeing two seconds of it Affect you?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: Since the girl in the second movie lived because she covered her eyes, you'd have to watch the whole thing.

Question: What is the reason for all of the Iodine in the shrimp and if it makes people that sick, why would they put it in there?

Chosen answer: Nobody puts iodine in shrimp. It is a naturally occurring substance in shellfish that some people are allergic to.

Question: When the Beast lets Belle go and she goes back home with her sick father, and "proves" to the village that there really is a Beast via the magic mirror, and Gaston and his posse invade the Beast's castle - How did the anthropomorphic objects and the Beast know that Belle didn't *send* Gaston to kill the Beast? I mean, we know Belle hates Gaston, but the objects and Beast don't know that. For all they know, Belle could have said to Gaston, "There's this beast, and he was keeping me in his castle, and he thinks I like him but I've been faking it."

Chosen answer: I think the simplest answer is that they trust her. Belle showed what kind of a person she was when she volunteered to take her father's place as a prisoner, and also when she returned to the castle with the wounded Beast instead of running away. Plus, the Beast voluntarily released her, and he did treat her kindly most of the time. I think suspecting her of a hidden hatred that would result in sending people to attack the castle would be kind of a stretch.

Krista

Question: In the scene where Eversmann is briefing his team ready for them to gear up and go out, he says something like "sorry ass JROTC". What does JROTC stand for? (00:26:00)

The-Immortal

Chosen answer: Junior Reserve Officers Training Corp. You have JROTC in high school and ROTC in college. It's a way of getting a commission in the military early on. It's often not looked fondly upon by officers who came up through the enlisted ranks first.

Grumpy Scot

Question: I watched this on British TV. On the site, I saw some mistakes talking about the ear piercing on the site. I did not see Hallie sterilizing the needle bit. Why is this?

Chosen answer: Because that scene was cut out for TV. This is a regular occurrence so that the movies will fit in the time slot given to them.
