Question: When Shrek and the gang decide to visit the Muffin Man, Shrek says, "We're going to need flour, lots and lots of flour." I remember a similar line (but not referring to flour) from another movie. What movie was that from and what was the line?

Chosen answer: Quite possibly from "The Matrix". "We need guns. Lots of guns."

Question: Does the book 'Brave New World' upon which 'Demolition Man' is based reference the three seashells in the bathroom or is it just a bit of comic relief in the movie ?

Chosen answer: For a start, the question is seriously flawed: Demolition Man is not based on Brave New world. The only similarity between the two is that that both are set in conformist future societies. There are a few references in the movie to that book (for example, the character name Lenina Huxley is a combination of BNW character Lenina Crowne and the book's author, Aldous Huxley); but to the best of my knowledge, the "three seashells" was not one of them.

Question: Why is there a "string holder", for lack of a better term, next to the shower, is it there for a plot device to get Connery out of the building or is there a hopefully better reason?

NoWhereMan

Question: Does anyone know what music is playing while the old lady crosses the ocean with the dog?

Chosen answer: The music heard on the soundtrack as Mme. Souza and Bruno follow the ocean liner is from the opening movement (Kyrie) of Mozart's Mass in C minor.

Question: If Fairy Godmother's son is a prince, who on earth is his father? Is it just me, or does this put King Harold in little suspicious a state?

Chosen answer: Poor King Harold looks like a softie, but I don't think he would meekly assist to the marriage of his two children - that would be Shakespeare at his worst and not a fairy tale, however spoofy it is.

Question: In the scene where Dewey is demonstrating the guitar to Zack, what is the first bit of music he plays, just before "Smoke on the Water"?

Chosen answer: He's playing "Ironman" by Black Sabbath.

Question: Aren't distances in Europe designated in kilometers? Col. Henry West says he and his men are located 27 miles NW of Manchester. I figured he'd use the equivalent distance in kilometers,43 km. Is this common in Europe to use either measurement?

Chosen answer: The metric system is used in mainland Europe, but very rarely in Britain. Road signs are still measured in miles in Britain, and distances usually are too.

He's My Brother

Show generally

Question: There's probably an obvious answer to this but is there any actual in-show significance to the 'Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs' song heard at the end of every episode? I ask mainly because I remembered there was one show in particular where Frasier unintentionally scars Lilith emotionally and pretty much cements the end of their relationship over a misunderstanding about scrambled eggs. Were there any similar conflicts over a tossed salad?

Chosen answer: In the last episode, they explained that Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs is a metaphor for the mixed-up people to whom Frasier dispenses his radio psychiatric advice.

Question: During the Livin' La Vida Loca, who stage dives before Shrek?

Chosen answer: It looks like just a member of the band.

That's Lobstertainment! - S3-E8

Question: I have heard that Calculon winning the Golden Globe in this episode is a spoof of how a woman (Pia Zadora I believe) won the Golden Globe for Best Female Newcomer for a film that was terrible enough that she shouldn't have even dreamed of getting it, and it turned out she won it because her husband had bribed many people to get her to win. Is this true?

Chosen answer: While it has never been proved, it is believed that her husband, Israeli millionaire Meshulam Riklis, did have something to do with her winning a GG for her role in "Butterfly", especially since she also won Razzies for Worst New Star and Worst Actress for the same role.

Question: In one of the Special Features on the DVD, it shows Sofia Coppola and the rest of the cast and crew fulfilling a pre-filming tradition of holding hands and saying a word that sounds like 'puaba' three times. Can anyone tell me what this word means and why it is a tradition in Sofia Coppola's family?

Chosen answer: I believe that it means something like "good luck", as she hoped the production goes as smoothly as possible.

Show generally

Question: Can someone explain some of the episode titles to me, mainly "Death has A Shadow" (no one dies) and "I Never Met The Dead Man" (ditto) "Chitty Chitty Death bang", the list goes on.

Chosen answer: When the creators were naming the shows, they wanted to incorporate "Death" in the title as one big run along joke. This eventually stoppped when even they were confused on which shows were which.

Question: Can anyone tell me what some of the Klingon phrases mean?

Chosen answer: When the kid goes up to Marvin and talks to him, he says "Klingo Mach" or something. That means "you speak Klingon?" Then the kid says "Egchad" which means "yes". That thing with the hands means hello or goodbye depending when you use it.

Hot Dog - S5-E7

Question: This goes where Red give the puppy to Kitty. In real life whose dog is that?

Chosen answer: It's Ashton Kutcher's dog.

Question: It's not a mistake (it says so in the corrections page) but when the blond guy has his leg cut off he is wearing a shoe and sock on the other foot. WHY when he's in the basement is he barefoot? Is he meant to have taken off his footwear or was it leatherface?

Chosen answer: If you look around in the house, you can see that Leatherface like to keep several souvenirs from his victims. e.g. teeth, eyes, shoes are some of them.

Show generally

Question: What is the true origin of the Constructicons? "Heavy Metal War" claims they were built on Earth by Megatron, but "The Secret of Omega Supreme" shows them already on Cybertron before the war on Earth began. Is this a legitimate mistake or is there a reason behind it?

Chosen answer: This was actually one of many errors in Transformers, the Constructicons MUST have been built on Cybertron, the only transformers genuinely built on earth were the dinobots, reason being Vector Sigma has to give personalities to each and every robot, else they end up like the dinobots, very simple and dumb. For reference watch the episode "The Key to Vector Sigma" which introduces the Stunticons and Arielbots - both Megatron and Optimus Prime have to go to Vector Sigma to get decent personality traits installed, prior to this the new robots are controlled by remote controllers and have no AI.
