Question: I am confused as to what happens to Sati. Is she the new One, succeeding Neo? Or did the Merovingian simply ensure that she could survive the Smith infection? In either case, where does the Merovingian, one program with power over only other programs, get the ability to guarantee either of these results?

Phoenix

Chosen answer: When Neo destroys Smith, all effects of Smith were undone, or something like that. There are those who say that everyone in the Matrix had become a Smith which is why the machines needed Neo's help because the situation was out of control.

Question: Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the script for this movie online?

Chosen answer: I found what appears to be a full transcript at http://www.tvdance.com/movie-scripts/roadtrip/ although it annoyingly lacks labels on who is speaking each line.

White Hole - S4-E4

Question: In this episode, Rimmer says how the Eskimos had the right idea by taking the sick and old out into the snow, and then leaving them to it. Then he says 'that's why there is no Eskimo word for Eastbourne'. I don't get the joke. What does he mean?

Chosen answer: Eastborne is a coastal resort town in Sussex in southern England. A lot of people go to live there after they retire, hence the joke.

Question: What's the other car Will Smith drives? You see it in the scene after the morgue.

Question: On the American DVD where are the deleted scenes on the second disc?

Chosen answer: 1. On the Opening screen on Disc two, select Diagon Alley (Hedwig). 2. Put the selector thingy on Gringotts, then press down selecting the key, click to get to the gringotts area then select the Galleon, Sickle, and Knut and click. 3. Now you should be back at the main page for diagon alley, go to ollivander's and have fun selecting your wand (not sure if its the same for every DVD). 4. Go back to the main screen and select the wand and click, getting to the classrooms. 5. Select Transfiguration (the cat), then hit down to select the owls on the torch, then hit up to select the H on a Shield. Click. 6. At Fluffy, select the Flute and click. 7. At the Keys, select the Silver one in the middle with a bent wing (its the only one that is completely over the door in the background). 8. At the Bottles (which was not in the Movie) select the round one with the yellow liquid. 9. Select the Red stone in the mirror to get to the cut scenes (only seven, but I bet there's more).

Question: Does Rogue have a crush on Logan because Bobby seems awfully jealous at times?

Chosen answer: She certainly feels close to him, because he looked after her during the events of the first film. It never really comes across as a full-blown crush - Rogue's old enough to know better - but it's enough to worry Bobby. Given that there's only supposed to be about a month between the two films, Bobby and Rogue's relationship is in the very early stages, so it's quite normal to worry about such things.

Question: So how exactly did Neo defeat Smith? The only possibility I can think of is that since Neo is connected to the Deus Ex Machina, he gets infected with Smith and then the Machine God can destroy the program in Neo thus causing a chain reaction. So am I right?

Chosen answer: You are right. In "Reloaded" the Oracle tells Neo that when programs face deletion they either go to the source to be recycled back into the matrix code, or go into exile. Smith went into exile but effectively "returned to the source" when he infected Neo, who was connected directly to the source.

Nick N.

Question: When Norrington and his crew successfully win back their ship from the pirates when the curse is lifted, the soldiers begin to chant something. What are they chanting and what does it mean?

Chosen answer: They're shouting "huzzah", which was a traditional sailor's cheer. The modern-day cheers "hurrah" and "hooray" derived from this word.

Question: Why does Rogue get that blonde-white streak in her hair at the end? I've never read the comic books, so if the answer's there, I wouldn't know.

Chosen answer: It's from the stress of powering Magneto's device.

Question: What exactly is the nature of the relationship between Catherine and Grissom? I know they're good friends but what else? Did they date, go to school together, etc?

Chosen answer: Grissom recruited Catherine when she was still stripping and going to college. He was a field services officer at the time. There hasn't been any relationship except as friends.

Question: If the janitor is Brian's dad who is the guy that picks him up at the end because he looks a bit like him?

Chosen answer: The janitor isn't Brian's dad, Bender just asked if his dad worked there to make fun of Brian because the janitor knew him.

Question: How do I access the easter egg on the DVD?

Chosen answer: From the disc's main menu, go to the 'Special Features.' Here, select the entry 'Memento' and you will get to a newspaper page featuring select words that slowly fade in and out. Highlighting each fading word takes you to another part of the original website. However, if you move over to the word 'Questions' in the title of the article - it barely fades in and out - you'll see that there's scribbled underlining there. Click and you'll see a scrap of paper reading: 'who did I kill?' Click the arrow that leads to the right and you'll be taken to a list of names. Click almost any name and you'll get sent back to the article. However, if you click the name 'Teddy' you'll be taken to a credits screen for the people who worked on the DVD. http://www.dvdreview.com/eastereggs/collect/296.html.

The One With The Lottery - S9-E18

Question: In this episode, I think that it is Ross who mentions a person called Amelia Earhart. Who is she?

Chosen answer: Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. She and her navigator (Fred Noonan) were lost July 2, 1937, en route from Lae, New Guinea to Howland Island - the plane was never found.

Show generally

Question: Even though the Simpson's home state is a mystery, in the episode where Homer gets kidnapped in Brazil, Lisa says that if you look at the clues, you can figure it out. Has anyone tried to look at all the clues and figured it out? My theory is that the Simpson's home state is Oregon (where Matt Groening grew up). There was even an episode where Homer joins the Navy and it shows a plotted map of USA where Homer sails off from the west coast of America (either Oregon or northern California). Has anyone else came up with this conclusion or have totally different conclusions?

Chosen answer: This is an age old battle that has been going on since the show's debut. People give supporting arguments for almost every state, and some say that it's made up. According to Matt Groening, Springfield is not based on any Springfield in the USA (Even though there are over 150 of em), he says it is based on Portland Oregon, his home town. http://www.roundspringfield.com/?section=usual&page=faq#1

Blind Date - S1-E21

Question: In this episode they're trying to decrypt some files, and Cordelia phones Willow. She hears that they've been trying to decrypt computer files all day too - does this correspond to a specific episode of Buffy?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: It corresponds to 'The Yoko Factor' (4-20), though Willow never mentions that Cordelia calls.

Question: There is a trailer out that ends with a girl knocking on a door and saying "housekeeping," and the door flies open and there is a big shrieking noise. Then as the door slams shut the girl says, "I'll come back later." Has anyone any idea of what part in the books this is?

Chosen answer: That scene is not in the book.

Question: I read somewhere that there is a reference to fight club in this film. I just wondered if anyone had spotted it and if they have can they point it out please?

Chosen answer: This reference is pretty hard to spot. You need to be very familiar with Fight Club and David Fincher. The reference occurs in the scene when Gill is describing the plan to escape from the fish tank. The camera work and linear flow through a sequence of events closely remembles the early scene in Fight Club where the Narrator describes what is about to occur in Operation Mayhem.
