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.

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.

Question: What is the song that plays when Charlie first turns into Hank? (I think its in the scene in the grocery store).

Chosen answer: "Fire Like This" by Hardknox.

Question: What was that phone number that they listed of that guy that lied about having an 800 number?

Kirill Ostapenko

Chosen answer: (202) 225-2536. It's not that major a revelation in the film, as his number's publicly available on a variety of sites.

Question: I read that in the comics there is a reason that Doc Ock's arms want to rebuild the fusion so desperately. This is not dealt with in the movie, can anyone tell me what the reason was?

Nick N.

Chosen answer: It was only mentioned once, and it was when he first showed them to the audience. He stated that they were built for the soul purpose of creating fussion, so that is all they wanted to do.

Question: When Doc Ock is in the operating room, he has a blindfold on. And his reaction when he takes it off appears that he went blind from the implosion. And we also see what he sees from the 4 arms. Its also shown that he is disoriented until the arms point to a direction. like when he flips the taxi, he doesn't seem to see it until the arms see it. So, did he become temporally blind? Or what exactly was it, because at first it did seem that he was blind and was relying on the arms for vision.

Kirill Ostapenko

Chosen answer: In the operating room Otto is unconscious and the arms are operating by themselves. He looks disorientated because he's just come out of the anasthetic, he has giant metal tentacles attatched to his body and everyone else is dead. When he flips the taxi, the tenticles are acting as extra eyes (sort of like Peter's spider-sense) which allow him to see in five directions at once, he looks with his human eyes to double check what the tenticle is showing him.

Question: Why is there so much blue symbolism in Kate Winslet's house. I know her hair is blue, but are we to believe she changes the colour of everything in her house when she changes her hair colour (which is often, apparently)?


Chosen answer: Psychologists believe blue is a 'peaceful' color, as opposed to agressive colors like red. Experiments seem to show that people are genuinely effected emotionally by use of colors. Blue would promote a clear, calm - dare I say spotless - mind. Note this is also used in Forrest Gump; almost everything Gump wears is blue, suggesting again his calm, uncluttered thoughts.

Question: Is there any significant reason why Forrest Gump wears blue in almost every scene (when he's not in uniform)?

Answer: I believe that in addition to mild mental impairment Forrest also suffers from a degree of autism. Autistic individuals frequently have ingrained mannerisms, such as only wanting to wear a paricular type or color of clothing. Other examples that might point to autism are his mindless devotion to mowing and running.

Chosen answer: Maybe it was Forrest's favorite color? Or sometimes the director of a movie does that to set a mood throughout.

Question: Who are the inhabitants of the planet we see at the beginning (the first to fall victim to Unicron)? Are they transformers or just normal robots?

Chosen answer: The planet was called Lithone. According to a comic book adaptation, the race that dwelled there were an offshoot of the Transformers who were more emotional. The limited information given on the only two characters named in the movie, Arblus and Kranix, shows that they can transform even though this is never shown.

Question: What exactly are bore worms?

Chosen answer: Since one meaning of "bore" has to due with digging tunnels and they are used in the torture scene, one can assume that they are worms that eat holes into your flesh.

Question: In the scene where Gandalf and Saruman are fighting in the tower Saruman takes Gandalf's staff and sends him to the top of the tower. What happened to Gandalf's staff? When he escapes he somehow gets his staff back and uses it the rest of the movie. Is it another similar staff, or am I missing something?

Chosen answer: It is a different staff. Look at the branches at the top of the staff.

Question: Time travel question: Harry has been saved after the transformation of the werewolf because of a howl. However, this only happened because of their time travel, so the "first run" is maybe supposed to end somehow differently - e.g. Harry having been killed by the werewolf, making the scenario at the hospital ward unable to happen at all.

Chosen answer: No that howl the whole time was Hermione, it was never another wolf. Look at it this way: at Hagrid's hut the trio did not know to leave until the Future Hermione threw 2 stones through the window. This scene (and any times Hermione travels back in time) is basically on a loop. One (Hermione throwing the stone to alert her self) has to happen for the other (real time) to continue as planned. Any other sequence of events is impossible. Weird, but just how it works.


Question: Why is sematary misspelled?

Chosen answer: Because in the book, the sign at the entrance to the "Pet Semetary" was written by some anonymous child. Clearly he/she couldn't spell that well yet.

Question: If anyone has read the book, does Jimmy get away with murdering Dave?

Chosen answer: At the end of the book, Jimmy is still free, but Sean makes it clear that he will be watching Jimmy very closely.


Question: Was Roxie really ever pregnant? She revealed later that she wasn't but the Doctor said she was.

Chosen answer: No she was never pregnant. The doctor only says that she was because she had given him certain sexual favours to bribe him into saying it! If you look, you can see him zip up his trousers when he announces the pregnancy.

Question: When Hermione is using her Time Turner to attend multiple classes scheduled at the same time, she appears out of nowhere in the middle of the lessons. For this to happen, she must be travelling to the classroom after the lesson and then using the Time Turner in the empty classroom to send herself back. Is there any reason why she does it this way (rather than just travelling back to before the lesson and then entering the classroom with the others)?

Moose Premium member

Chosen answer: This is probably because she can't control exactly when she gets to class (she can only go back a number of hours), so she ends up slightly late for the lesson.


Question: Excuse my ignorance, i never read the comics but I used to watch the cartoons when i was younger and I'm sure that Wolverine was with Storm and i don't remember him liking Jean Gray. What happens here? Did he like Jean then go on to Storm?

Chosen answer: Wolverine always had a thing for Jean. They were together in the Age of Apocolypse series (alternate reality). He was also in love with her in the cartoon in the mid 1990's.

Maria Santos

Question: When Shrek, Donkey and Puss-in-Boots try to steal a magic potion from the Potion Room, they smash several bottles. How can thereafter the Fairy Godmother and her assistant be so sure there is only one bottle (the Happily Ever After cocktail) missing?

Chosen answer: This is an enchanted kingdom, and the Fairy Godmother no doubt has some sort of magical inventory to make it easier to keep track of everything. Such an inventory would reflect the destruction of several potions and the theft of another differently, because it's magic.
