Question: IMDB lists a character named Sunshine, played by an uncredited Prudence Wright Holmes. Who is she?

Chosen answer: Sunshine is the name of one of Gueniviere's handmaidens. She is also mentioned in L'morte d'Arthur.

Question: When James Bond goes to see Professor Dent at his office, it's morning. After he leaves, Dent goes out to Dr. No's island and picks up the caged tarantula. The next time we see Bond, he's returning to his hotel, and it's night, probably late, as he goes to sleep soon after. Where did Bond go between seeing Dent in the morning and returning to his hotel that night?

Chosen answer: It's obvious what he does between those times. In "Goldfinger," Felix Leiter sees him just moseying off between an event and the climax of the movie and says to his pal "Ten'll get you one it's a drink or a dame." No doubt Bond's using his time...productively.

The Black Seal - S1-E6

Question: What is the strange plopping type noise that is heard a few times in this episode? I think it is first heard when Sean, the Irish B*****d is introduced.

Chosen answer: I checked my subtitles and it reads "cork pops". It seems Sean is a typical Irishman and enjoys copious amounts of drink. When the Friar is intoduced you can see him on the left of the group and it looks like he is opening a bottle.

The Secret Box / Band Geeks - S2-E14

Question: Someone wrote that the song Spongebob sings at the end is part of a real song, "Wings of the Wind." But when searching for this songs' lyrics at Google, they don't include the lines Spongebob sings. On other websites, the song is identified as "Sweet Victory" and the singer was David Glen Eisley. Could someone please clarify this?

Chosen answer: The song was Sweet Vitory by David Glen Eisley. Not Wings of the Wind. Wings of the Wind might have been a remake that didn't include the part you were talking about.

Question: Does anyone know why Ashton's name didn't appear in the credits?

Chosen answer: When and where an actor's name appears in a movie's credits affects his (or her) leverage in future contracts. It's not uncommon for a big-name actor taking a relatively small role to not appear in the credits rather than lose money on the next project.

Question: Is there any trivia behind the fact that the Baudelaire's home is in Boston, a detail not mentioned in the book?

Chosen answer: No. It's just the town they picked. The only reason they picked a specific location at all was because the house had to be somewhere since they get a letter at the end.

Question: I know that the infamous third arm shot in the helicopter can be explained by being able to morph another arm, but has James Cameron or any of the actors from the film ever commented on the extra arm?

Chosen answer: A member of the production team mentions on the Ultimate Edition DVD commentary that this was indeed an intentional effect.

Question: In Highlander The Sorcerer, Conner had adopted a son. Anyone know what happened to him as in Endgame, Conner gets killed?

Chosen answer: It's hard to say. Since the series totally ignores "Highlander 2" some assume that they also ignored "Highlander 3." But if you don't like that idea, you can probably assume he's off at college with his own life, or maybe even been killed by Jacob Kell.

Question: When Zatara goes to Mr. Morell's house to find out information about Dantes and about the others that he wants revenge on, why do they keep showing Morell's granddaughter looking at Zatara? Does she realize that he really is Dantes or is it some other reason?

Chosen answer: I believe it's just because there is a dirty smelly man that she doesn't recognise visiting her ailing father, she just wants to keep an eye on things.

Question: In many reviews I've read of this film, folks say that, at the end, it is revealed that the bet between God and Satan for the first to reach 100 billion souls was all a joke by God on the devil. I have seen this film five times and never once (even after reading these things) did I hear/see anything that even remotely indicated that the contest was a joke. Can someone please fill me in on this?

Chosen answer: It's a joke because the souls already belong to God. It's mentioned during the jail scene. So the question is irrelevant, as God already has well over 100 billion souls in any case, and the devil can't gain them back.

The Big Superhero Wish - S4-E3

Question: I know that Crocker's villain parodies Dr. Octopus and Vicky's villain parodies Wolverine, but who is Francis' villain supposed to be?

Chosen answer: There is no specific character he is parodying, just brute characters that take animal names and costumes, like the Rhino.

Question: Is there an official explanation to the ending of the movie? Some people say that it was Travis's dream sequence, and others say it was Travis going back to his manic depressive self again. What caused Travis to get so startled when he was looking at the rear vision mirror? Did Scorsese deliberately make the ending very vague or is there supposed to be an explanation to the ending?

Chosen answer: This is just my opinion. Remember Iris's line "Have you ever tried looking at your own eyeballs in the mirror?" or something to that effect. Well, Travis sees the madness reflected in his own eyes, doesn't like what he sees (as it reminds him of what he has done, what he might yet do).

Question: On IMDB's trivia for this movie, it says that whenever a character's eyes blink, they never blink together, but one at a time. Is this true? If so, why would they do this?

Chosen answer: If you'd ever had one of those dolls that when you lay it down the eyes close, you would know that they never close at the same time. One always seems to stick a little.

Question: After the Transporters BMW gets blown up he goes back to the house and starts beating everyone up. Whats the song that plays during the the whole scene? I don't think it's on the soundtrack.

Chosen answer: It's not in the soundtrack. The song is "Fighting Man" by "DJ Pone & Drixxxe".

Question: Does anyone know if there is a soundtrack (CD) for this movie available anywhere?

Chosen answer: I doubt it as, the film was made during Parker's college years, but every song asis available as an mp3 at

Question: Whose house does Charlie take Chong and Roy to after he meets them at Buckingham Palace?

Chosen answer: It is never really mentioned, but we can assume it is the home of some noble or "higher class" person, from all of the elaborate things.

Question: When Rosalee and Tad are on the plane and Rosalee is looking out of the window at the start of the scene (I think), what is the song playing? I briefly remember lyrics similar to, "I stay behind and watch the credits roll by.", or something to that effect.

Chosen answer: It's Somebody by Bonnie McKee.

Question: There were two flashbacks of how Raymond Shaw killed one of the soldiers. One scene it showed him suffocating him in the desert with a piece of plastic. In another scene it shows him choking him with his hands in some kind of observation room. Was the desert 'killing', a dream combining the truth with the brainwashing?


Chosen answer: Perhaps the piece-of-plastic killing was a "test run" by the brainwashers to see if Raymond would actually react to their commands. You can see other soldiers lying down wearing "halos", hinting that this happened at a different time and place than the observation room choking.

Question: I have not seen this film but have heard that at one point Jack Black sings the Bruce Dickinson song 'Tears Of The Dragon'. Is this true? There is nothing on the IMDb.

Chosen answer: The song isn't on the soundtrack, and I can't find anywhere in the film where Jack sings lyrics that even sound like Tears. I don't think it's true.

Question: Did Joe kill the guy in the hotel that he stole the money from?

Chosen answer: Probably not. The man was a masochist who derived sexual pleasure from being physically abused. Joe apparently crammed the phone receiver into the man's mouth and left, unknown if he died from it or not.
