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: 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?

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.

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.

Question: When Krusty runs for Senator there is a news program on with the news scrolling on the bottom of the TV. It says "Rupert Murdoch terrific dancer". Who is he?

Chosen answer: His company News Corporation owns Fox and its subsidaries, which is the network that runs The Simpsons in the states, and was once the owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.

Jane Doe

Question: This goes for X-men 1 and 2, why are some of the characters, i.e Beast, Gambit, Spike not in the films?

Chosen answer: The characters were chosen for popularity, practicality of costuming (Mystique is enough without doing Beast's blue fur as well), and contribution to the storyline, since there were simply too many X-Men to include them all. Also, it leaves characters for sequels (like Nightcrawler).

Question: Is Pidge a boy or a girl?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: I don't think it's ever said. I always assumed Pidge was a boy, and I'm not sure why. I think because it was a man who did the voice.

Question: What is the meaning behind the password at the end of the credits?

Chosen answer: The password is what was used to access the movie's website when it came out.

T Poston

Question: In one movie trailer way back when the movie first came out there was a cut scene in which Eddie turns into cartoon pig. Is there any DVD that includes this scene?

iceverything776

Chosen answer: Yes, on the most recent DVD, it shows a sequence when Eddie is in Toontown and he begins turning into a pig. It also shows how the sequence was made. I think it shows it on Disc 2.

Question: I just loved the music. Can anyone tell me whether there's a soundtrack or anything, or who are the main performing artists?

Chosen answer: There is a soundtrack to the movie which has two oscar nominations for best original song and a nomination for original score - go to amazon.com to find out the artist info.

Jane Doe

Question: Does anyone know who decided on the musical scores for the movies? I know that Enya and Howard Shore contributed most of the music, but were there any other choices that were considered? Mostly I'm wondering if The Lord of the Rings Symphony (by Johan DeMeij) was ever considered, or if there was some kind of copyright issue surrounding the usage of the symphony.

Chosen answer: An original score was the only thing ever considered.

Question: Why is the movie called "10 Things I Hate About You"? I thought it was in reference to Kat's poem, but she lists at least twelve things.

Chosen answer: She only says "I Hate" 10 times. Some of those she says more than one thing that bugs her, but written in list form it appears as 10 things.

Shay

Answer: 10 Things I Hate About You is a play on the title of the Shakespeare play Taming of the Shrew. This movie is a modern re-telling of that play. Unlike DiCaprio's version of Romeo + Juliet, this movie doesn't use the original dialogue from Shakespeare. The premises are the same.
