Question: Why did Palaptine wait for Order 66?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: He needed Anakin totally on his side before ordering the assassination of the Jedi order. If Anakin wasn't fully committed he might refuse to join him after executing order 66.

Question: What happened to Qui Gon Jinn's lightsaber?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: Obi-Wan used it until he made himself a new one. Then it was presumably turned over to the Jedi Temple.

Question: How do Danny and Cha Cha know each other? He acts different around her and when they first met she said 'Zucko, baby'?

mzlol738

Chosen answer: It is implied that Danny and Cha-Cha used to date, and that she still holds a torch for him. Danny tries to pass off their acquaintance by telling Sandy she's a "friend of the family."

Michael Albert

Answer: Danny and Cha Cha did date. While at the drive-in Sandy says "I still think you went together." To "go together" back then meant going steady, as in they were boyfriend and girlfriend. Danny is trying to pass it off as something less serious but he does admit "We didn't go together, we just went together."

Question: What did Pazuzu (when possessing Regan) mean when he told Damien that performing an exorcism would bring them closer together?

Chosen answer: Pazuzu is secure in its position and does not believe it can be exorcised, so it is a taunt to Damien, who is in the midst of a deep crisis of faith, that the attempt at exorcism will fail and send Damien further down the path of darkness.

Answer: When the Exorcism failed, Father Karras asked the Demon to take him, which it did, he continued his hold on him through the Legion story line.

Question: During the party near the ending, why did the guests panic when they saw Jonathan's true identity?

Chosen answer: Throughout the movie, Dracula has been drilling into his guests the history of humans' mistreatment of monsters, hence the building of the hotel, which was to be a monster's refuge from the human world. Most of the monsters likely had never interacted with humans, so that coupled with the stories from the past caused the monsters to freak when they saw Jonathan's true identity as a human.

Question: How come the Jedi didn't sense Palpatine was a Sith Lord?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: He is a Sith master, just as powerful as a Jedi, he concealed himself. By controlling his emotions and suppressing them, until he achieved his goal of ultimate power.

Question: Was Dooku just a placeholder for Anakin?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: That's one way to look at it. The Sith sought to grow stronger, and when a potentially stronger apprentice comes around, the "upgrade" is too tempting to pass on.

Question: How did Manny know the humans would go to glacier pass?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Because they have a settlement on the other side.

Question: Was Soto going to hold the baby for ransom or eat it or kill it?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Eat it.

Question: How come Manny forgave Diego for betraying them? Most Mammoths wouldn't.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He forgave Diego because not only did Diego warn them on what he was originally sent to do, but also helped them plan a way to defeat the sabres.

Brian Sings & Swings - S4-E19

Question: Why did Meg wait until near the end of the episode to tell Sarah she was not a lesbian, and not after finding about the lesbian alliance club?

Darth Crucible

Chosen answer: Meg is typically depicted as unpopular at school, so she chose to conceal the fact that she was straight because of the acceptance she felt from the members of the club. It was only when her alleged lesbianism was put to the test at the end that she was compelled to tell the truth about her sexual orientation.

Question: Even though Anna lost her memories of Elsa's ice making powers, how did she remember Olaf after she meets him?

Chosen answer: She remembers that her and Elsa built a snowman as children and named him Olaf. She doesn't remember that Elsa used magic to make the snow. In her mind it was just a memory of two sisters building an ordinary snowman and pretending he was alive.

Question: Did Darth Tyranus know that Sidious was going to betray him?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: Nope, you can see the surprise on his face when Palpatine orders Anakin to kill him. He then realises Anakin is Sidious' new apprentice. He fully expected to defeat Anakin.

lionhead

Question: Why did Mr Mertle invite them into his house? Given how they just made all that noise and took down his fence.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Because he was a nice guy. He also maybe wanted to talk more about baseball since he probably has no one else. He even says it "Let's talk about this ball".

Question: Why does Joy want Riley to be happy so much, rather than angry or sad when she has to be? Riley can't be happy all the time.

Chosen answer: All of the emotions want to be in control. Joy will always fight for Riley to experience joy.

Jason Hoffman

Question: Why was Diego leaving the herd?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He failed at hunting and believes staying with the herd has damaged his predatory instincts.

Question: Did Manny think if they cleaned the baby's diaper he would stop crying? What difference would that make?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Manny is a Mammoth, he doesn't know how to take care of a human baby. He assumed (correctly) that if there is poop in the baby's diaper, the baby would be uncomfortable and cry. Like babies do in real life.

Question: Where is Steve when he meets Erskine for the first time?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: In a recruiting office at the Worlds Fair in Queens.

Question: Why didn't Tai Lung kill the five?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Much like the reason he didn't kill the duck when he first escaped. He wanted to show Shifu that he is better than the five and allowing them to go was the only way he would know.

Question: At the start Smalls said he was from another state and didn't have a single friend in a thousand miles. Did that mean he never had any friends even before he moved?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: The line implies that Smalls had friends but he lives nowhere near them anymore. If he never had any friends at all before he would have said so.
