Question: When Will and his friends leave the Harvard bar, he spots the "Michael Bolton clone" and approaches. He pushes the piece of paper with Skylar's phone number against the glass and shouts "do you like apples?" When the other man replies "Yes", Will says "Well, I got her number. How do you like them apples?" Can anyone please tell me what that means?

Chosen answer: "How do you like those apples" is an expression used to denote triumph, like "told you so" or "put that in your pipe and smoke it". Will just adds his own little humorous twist to it.

Show generally

Question: In a lot of the episodes there seems to be a slightly curved "scratch" in the upper right of the screen, it always stays in the same spot, stays the same shape and size... what is this?

MAC

Chosen answer: Maybe your TV... or just the channel. It happens sometimes you know.

Question: Did I miss Arwen's return to Rivendell in Two Towers? Elrond talked her into leaving; she walks off to the ships with other elves, looking back at Elrond. In Return of the King, she is back at Rivendell, and is again persuaded to leave, and rides off on a horse in a parade going to Gray Havens.

scwilliam

Chosen answer: She does not walk off to the ships in The Two Towers. She and the other Elves start walking to leave on their journey to the Grey Havens. In Return of the King, she is on horseback, during the Elves journey towards the Grey Havens, when she sees a vision of her son, wearing the Evenstar and of Aragorn. She then changes her mind and decides to ride back to Rivendell and confront her father, who has the gift of foresight, about her future life with Aragorn.

The One Where Monica Sings - S9-E13

Question: Whatever happened to Gavin? He seemed to disappear after he and Rachel kissed.

Chosen answer: Gavin was transferred back to his original post in Ralph Lauren, after Rachel told him she felt guilty if anything happened between them.

Question: At the beginning, when Batman breaks through the helicopter's window with his head, he tells Two-Face, 'Give it up, Harvey. You need help' or something like that. But this voice is totally not what Val Kilmer sounds like. The best I can come up with is that it's a stunt double or something like that. If anybody out there knows the real reason, I'd be happy to hear it.

DenizenZERO

Chosen answer: Batman talks like that because if he talks like Bruce Wayne (Val Kilmer's voice) his voice might be recognized, leading to Batman's identity being revealed.

Question: What does Harriet say to the Russian sailors as they walk past?

Chosen answer: They are saying she is too tall and too skinny, but one says she's still pretty good looking. She sarcastically says "Thanks a lot," or something to that effect. One of the guys says "Oh, she understands Russian." And Harriet replies, "Yes, I do. You fellas have a nice evening."

Answer: I don't know the entire conversation, but it definitely wasn't just "have a good night fellas" she said "malchik gei", which means gay boy in Russian so she was probably insulting them right back.

Question: What is the name of the song that plays at the end of the movie just before it goes to credits?

Tobin OReilly

Chosen answer: If you could read my mind, the hero would be me.

Question: During the sequence in the vault, De Niro uses a kind of torch. This torch emits sparks and is powerful enough to cut steel but is small enough to take with him. Is there such a torch? And if so what does it use for heat?

Chosen answer: More than likely its a plasma cutter. I am not sure what it uses for heat but I know its a common welding tool used in motorcycle and car shops. You can see one being used on Monster Garage on Discovery all the time.

Question: Can anyone explain Lucian's arm blade? It seems totally out of character for him, and every time he changed to wolf form he'd have to track it down and reattach it. Moreover, since these vampires don't have any weakness to metal, there's no special advantage in using a metal blade instead of his wolf claws. So what's the point?

Phoenix

Chosen answer: In most of the shots, Lucien takes his coat off when he changes to wolf form, and the blade would be attatched to a mechanism in him coat. Also, the film gives us an example of the blade hurting a vampire: bloodloss. And that kind of weapon could do some serious damage, and as it probably wouldn't kill the vampires, it would almost definitely slow them down.

Question: What is Goose's surname, and where is it mentioned?

Chosen answer: According to the credits, his surname is McKenzie.

Question: I was watching this film on TV the other night, and was expecting to see the train crash at the start, so I was surprised when I didn't. Has this been cut from the TV version?

Chosen answer: No, the crash never actually happened on-screen.

Question: I've heard 2 main explanations from friends as to why Frodo, Gandalf and the elves go to the undying lands at the end of the film and I've read another post which explains it a bit but I'm still confused. One is that it is because Frodo dies and cannot stay where he is and that it's like going to heaven but the other is that he's just going on an adventure or something like that. I think the first explanation makes more sense but I'd appreciate if someone could explain it to me properly because I'm still confused.

Chosen answer: The bearers of the three Great Rings, Galadriel, Elrond and Gandalf (who was given his ring by Cirdan the Shipwright), all pass to the West to the Undying Lands, for their time is ending. The Elves do so because their time in Middle-earth is ending too, and it is the time for men. Frodo, just like Bilbo, and when the time comes, Sam too, were all Ring bearers, and they all go to the Undying Lands with the blessings of the Valar. Frodo who leaves with Bilbo because the burden and pain were so deep for him, goes to the Undying Lands where the Valar will not only heal Frodo's physical wounds but emotional ones as well.

Question: In the end credits, there are seven stuntmen listed, b ut I can only think of four. Can you please tell me what all of the stunts are?.

Chosen answer: Reshooting certain scenes would most likely necessitate new stunt people, as the first one(s) would most likely be hard to get back.

Question: Why is it that in the scene where Bender is in the gym, he has a sneaker and boot on, but when he gets back to the library, he has replaced it with his boot? Was there a deleted scene where he loses his shoe or something? It just does not make sense that he would somehow find 1 sneaker, decide to wear it, then kick it off on his way back.

Chosen answer: Bender found the shoe in the gym, and decided to wear it. When the principal kicked the basketball, Bender jumped out of the shoe. He left with his boot, and was wearing it when he arrived at the library.

Valhalley of the Dolls (1) - S6-E1

Question: In Australia, what was the song that was played during the Charmed ad? I think it is still playing for Valley of the Dolls, part 2. The add is the one where they change from comics to the actual actresses.

Chosen answer: I don't know about Oz, but in Britain on Living tv (the cable channel) the song used was "Are you gonna be my girl" by Jet.

Question: What is the name of the BFG (Big F*****g Gun) the Burt uses? If it is a real weapon were can i find out more information on it?

Chosen answer: It's a 50 caliber Grizzly Big Bore rifle. They are real. Just put "Grizzly .50 Big Bore" into your search engine and you will find plenty of sites.

Question: What is the mirror? What does it do? And why does it take over anybody who touches it?

Chosen answer: What happens with the mirror does not appear to be typical of a 'disconnection', judging from the look exchanged between Trinity and Morpheus as the mirror 'heals'. What we see occuring may be the result of disconnection trauma triggering Neo's fledgling abilities, rather than some specific part of the disconnection process.

Question: What happened to the original poster with Roxy and Velma holding guns behind their backs? In all the more recent ones the guns are gone. Why?

Chosen answer: I have both the DVD and the soundtrack. On the DVD cover they have the guns, however on the soundtrack cover, their arms look like they have been cut out of the picture along with the guns. Possibly somebody thought that it was a bad influence, since many young people enjoy the movie as well.

leyesalot82789

Question: At one point, Kimble steals an ambulance. We then cut to the U.S Marshals, who say "An ambulance has been spotted...". They then run off to intercept it. But surely there's more than one ambulance in that area, and surely more than one person has seen an ambulance in that time?

Chosen answer: True, but if they cannot contact this one or it is seen driving eratically or out of it's designated area, that is sufficent to cause suspicion.

David Mercier

Question: When Kimball's dying wife calls 999, why does she say "Richard is trying to kill me?"

Chosen answer: She said "Richard, he's trying to kill me" refering to the one armed man. It sounded like "Richard is trying to kill me".
