Question: Why didn't the enchantress Agathe reveal herself to Belle when she mourns The Beast?

Chosen answer: She didn't have to, the second Belle proclaimed her love for the Beast, the spell was broken. She would have seen her use her magic to reverse the curse. It would be obvious to everyone she was an enchanted being.

Question: How long were the Beast and the servants cursed?

Chosen answer: It was never specified how long the curse had been in effect.

Question: I have questions about the horses in terms of their breeds. Is Gaston's horse a Friesian, Lefou's horse a Gypsy Vanner, and Belle's horse (Philippe) a Percheron?

Johman

Chosen answer: Gaston's horse was actually a Friesian cross. Incidentally, it was the same horse Luke Evans rode in "The Hobbit". Purebred Friesians were used to pull the prison wagon. Belle's horse was a Spanish horse, an Andalusian. And actually 3 different horses were used for Belle's horse, 2 of which had to be painted each day. I do believe for some of the action scenes, one of the horses was a Percheron. Lefou's horse does appear to be a Gypsy Vanner.

Question: Has the director ever commented on how Mark was supposed to find the combination to the safe with so many numbers on the walls? Are there any theories in general on how to solve it?

Answer: I believe the light from the candle would illuminated the hidden numbers needed on the walls The fact that there was broken glass on the floor and flammible substances on his body didn't help much though.

Chosen answer: It was pure trial and error - he had to try.

Answer: He simply has to try and find the right numbers amongst the plethora of false numbers on the walls in a short period of time. Trial and error. Try to find the right combo of numbers from his options. Not sure where the other answer got the "hidden numbers" idea from, as absolutely nothing in the film suggests there are hidden numbers.

Question: This question applies to the whole series. Why do some of the people who actually manage to survive Jigsaw's traps end up working with him instead of either helping capture him or killing him and insuring that no more innocent people get killed?

Chosen answer: Jigsaw's traps would more than likely leave a person mentally unstable, which could result in Stockholm Syndrome, a condition which involves a victim sympathising with their captor. In fact, after Lawrence Gordon escapes the bathroom after severing his own foot, Jigsaw nursed him back to full health, thus gaining his trust (this is shown in Saw VII). He also plays mind games on people, which is shown in a flashback in Saw III in which he convinced Amanda to side with him. In her unstable state of mind, she realised that he was the first person in her life she could actually relate to, and thus became an accomplice.

EK8829

Question: If the police had tech teams (as shown in Saw II), then why didn't the tech teams locate the nerve gas house/bathroom via the security cameras that Zep was using to observe Adam and Lawrence in the latter's house? The brief shootout between Zep and Tapp didn't destroy the computers and monitors, and Zep didn't disable or shut them down before leaving, either.

Chosen answer: They weren't in the nerve gas house. They were in Dr Gordon's house.

Answer: I assume that Jigsaw would have disabled the camera in the bathroom so no signal would have been emitted for them to locate the bathroom/nerve gas house.

Question: I can understand why Batman would take the blame for the murders Harvey committed but why would he also take the blame for the ones the Joker is responsible for?

Chosen answer: He doesn't, he only takes the blame for Harvey's murders. He personally blames himself for the Joker because of escalation but he most certainly does not accept any public blame for the Joker's crimes.

Chitty Chitty Death Bang - S1-E3

Question: In the flashback where Lois gives birth to Stewie. The doctor says they aren't done, and she says "Oh my God, is it twins?" With this episode being made in the late 90s, would it even be possible for a twin to go undetected until birth?

Chosen answer: Parents can request to not know the results of an ultrasound if they want to be surprised about the baby's gender. The doctor still would have let them know whether or not to expect twins, though, so the doctor is just as puzzled as Lois to find something else in there.

Answer: The doctor says we aren't done as a joke meaning, there was a historical map that came out after Stewie was born and because he said that, Lois asked if it was twins.

Question: What is the theme song that Peter is humming when he does the "siren luring sailors" cut-away?

Chosen answer: He is humming the theme song to the TV show The Rockford Files.

Model Misbehavior - S4-E10

Question: When Lois brings in the newspaper and says "look at this" Peter grabs it from her and says "movable printed type. We must hide this from the serfs lest they gain literacy and threaten the landed gentry." "What have you got there my lord?" "Nothing, go back to your turnips." What's the meaning behind this joke?

Christopher Burke

Chosen answer: Peter is acting as if he were a feudal lord in the middle ages, and that newsprint and the printed word were recent innovations, threatening to educate the peasantry and jeopardizing their hereditary rights as the ruling class. Just another one of the show's bizarre asides.

Question: How in blazes do 790 and the other robot heads, when they are attached to cyborg bodies, eat, drink and breathe for their biological bodies? I never see anything like either a functional nose/air intake or functional jaw and mouth (for food intake, as opposed to speech) for these things. I never see any such bio-interface on the bottom of 790's head when he is held upside-down etc... Also, what is the power source for 790's kind's actual robot head, since we never see him plug into an outlet, fuel up etc.

Question: Why do the robot heads get attached to human bodies?? Doesn't make sense when you consider how much more advanced they could make robot bodies for such. Also, why not put human brains in robot bodies? We know they have that ability.

Question: When Alex Kintner (the boy on the raft) gets eaten by the shark, I distinctly remember a shot right after the shark rolls over the raft, that the inflatable raft pops with a loud "POP", then there were two streams of blood coming out of the water almost 5 feet in the air, in a V-type pattern. Nobody remembers it. Nobody knows. It was only in the cinema in its original release. It's never made it to any re-release or home video media version or TV broadcast. This scene was forever etched in my memory because I knew the shark had punctured the boy's back and severed the two arteries/veins that are as thick as garden hoses. Please somebody, does anyone remember this scene?

Chosen answer: While there was an alternate (and more gruesome) Kintner-boy attack scene that was filmed late in production, Spielberg chose not to use it, and it never made it into the film. The only released Kintner-boy attack scene shows the shark roll the boy's raft, then the boy is seen lifted out of the water (by a film crew scuba diver) as fountains of bloody water appear several feet in front of the boy.

Charles Austin Miller

Question: Maybe I blinked, or maybe they cut a scene. How did Kong get tangled up in chains while he was fighting the big one?

Chosen answer: The chains are anchor chains from the ship wrecks that were there.

Question: Inside the volcano, how the heck didn't Frodo spot Smeagol sneaking behind Sam before turning invisible, if he was looking in Sam's direction?

Roman Curiel

Chosen answer: Frodo is not completely in his right mind. He's been affected by the ring and the extreme physical and mental toll on him. He could very well have not seen Smeagol.

Question: In the beginning, the 3 officials talk about how good the recruits were back in the old days. What did they mean when they referred to "Johnson's?"

Chosen answer: "Johnson" is a euphemism for a penis. They're saying every recruit was male.
