Question: Who was it that killed Eddie's brother in law? Was it someone looking for more NZT or just a random killing? I don't recall it actually being answered.

Chosen answer: It wasn't identified who killed Vernon but it was strongly implied that it was tied to his dealing in NZT.

Season 1 generally

Question: On the IMDB, the credits for each episode in season 1 (except for episode 8) list "Unity" as playing "Themselves" or "Themself", sometimes listed as uncredited and some times not. However I never saw Unity listed in any credits on the show itself. (It should be noted, I'm not talking about the character Unity from season 2 which was voiced by Christina Hendricks). Looking further on IMDB, Unity has appeared on a dance show where it appears Unity is a dance crew and not an individual with a weird name. So who is Unity playing in a cartoon if they're just dancers and not voice actors? Did the dance crew actually do any voice work or help with any dance scenes, even though they're just drawings and not motion captured?

Chosen answer: It was just an error on IMDB, it seems to have been fixed now.

Question: I read on a Youtube video comment that, under real life circumstances, the crew of Fury should've died during the battle with the Tiger because of a mechanical issue. Is this true? If so, why? What, in terms of mechanics I'm assuming, would've caused them to lose?

Chosen answer: There were tank engineering issues on both sides: The German Tiger was underpowered, heavily armored, incredibly heavy and slow moving, but it had a main cannon that could blow Allied tanks to pieces; The M4 Sherman was lighter, faster and more maneuverable, but the Sherman's armor was far too lightweight to withstand a one-on-one confrontation with a Tiger. On the other hand, the Tigers were so heavily armored that the Sherman's cannon fire would actually bounce off the Tigers, even at close range. Supposedly, the weakest part of a Tiger's armor was behind the turret; unfortunately for Allied tanks, they were seldom able sneak up behind Tigers. In reality, the only way for Shermans to successfully engage Tigers was with heavy ground artillery and air support. The Tigers have been called "the most feared weapon of WWII" in North Africa and the European theatre of operations.

Question: I have a question about the sergeant in the beginning of the film who had to kill himself after his tank was shot with a panzerfaust. Being younger than all the other sergeants of the tanks, how did he get a higher rank compared to them?

Chosen answer: The soldier who killed himself was not a sergeant, but a brand-new second lieutenant Platoon Leader straight out of college. We do not know the ages of the other NCO's in the film, so, with the exception of Brad Pitt's character, Wardaddy (supposedly a WWI veteran), the other sergeants could be in their early to mid-twenties- not much older than a new lieutenant, but they look older as combat has physically aged them.

Still Charmed & Kicking - S8-E1

Question: I'm confused or maybe I missed something, but why is it when we come to the first episode of series 8 that Leo is back from being frozen? How did that happen? Then he is gone again, only to be seen as a ghostly figure by Piper in another episode, then he only reappears in episode 21 like he has only just come out of being frozen. Am I really missing something here?

RealitySux

Chosen answer: Leo gets frozen in Season 8 episode 10 called Vaya Con Leos. In season 7 he was never frozen because the Angel of Death doesn't try to take him away until that episode. He is seen in season 7 and thee finale when he tries to get into the house after the explosion and the sisters tell him of their plan to change identities.

Question: At what scene in the movie does Deputy Gerard know Richard was innocent?

Chosen answer: He appears to be convinced that Kimble is innocent right after he and the other agents break into Sykes house and find incriminating evidence. Gerard realises that Kimble sent him there to prove his innocence.

Question: I don't understand why Jenny left Forrest's house after having sex with him and saying that she loved him. Could someone please offer thoughts on this?

Chosen answer: It's the type of person she is. She is unable to commit or settle down with one person, even if she loves them. She has a gypsy personality-someone who is always moving from one place to the next.

raywest Premium member

Answer: Forrest had mental issues. Jenny slept with him because she thought she loved him (and she realises later that she did), but didn't think that Forrest loved her back because he wasn't capable of understanding that kind of love (and she realises later that he did). She then remembered that her dad sexually abused her when she didn't understand what was going on, and she felt like she was behaving the way her dad did (remember Forrest's look of fear and discomfort?). Jenny then felt guilty and ran away because she didn't know how to deal with the guilt.

Question: For the basketball court scene, was there a specific martial art that Jason Statham learned? or was it a variety?

Question: Does anyone know the song that plays on the radio after a Graboid swallows it?

Question: In the beginning, Stu tells Adam to messenger a bottle of Jameson's over to Lana who works at Page Six. He also wants a note saying "Irish chicken soup" to be delivered to her. What does he mean? And what is Jameson's?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: Jameson's is a brand of Irish whiskey. He is making a joke that the whiskey is food, the same as chicken soup.

Question: At the end of the movie, Stu was hit by a rubber bullet. Did the caller shoot it? Why didn't he kill Stu? The caller loved Kelly, didn't he?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: The police fired the rubber bullets in an attempt to end the standoff without killing Stu. There's no indication the caller loved or personally knew Kelly. At the end, he warns Stu to maintain his new-found honesty or else face repercussions. He also tells him he's done the same thing to others who were dishonest.

Question: When Captain Ramey tries to persuade Stu, he asks him what he is doing in a phone booth making calls, then Stu says, "You want to see it?" reaching for something, then the cops shout out him to stop. What was Stu going to show to Ramey?

Bunch Son

Answer: He's reaching for his cell phone.

Chosen answer: Stu was reaching for the gun that the caller had planted in the phone booth as incriminating evidence.

Question: Why would Stu avoid Mario?

Bunch Son

Answer: He doesn't have time for him.

Question: Why didn't Zep (a hospital orderly) go to a poison control centre for help instead of playing Jigsaw's game?

EK8829

Chosen answer: Zepp is given a set time frame before the poison will kill him. If he went to poison control, in the time it would take for them to find the right antidote he would likely be dead. Being an orderly he would have known this.

Season 1 generally

Question: In season 1 the mystery is what really happened to the Young family that made Mary Alice kill herself. While it's revealed that Zach was in fact a baby named Dana and a son of Mike and Deirdre, I really don't understand why Zach had a female name and then later got a male name with his new parents. Is there something I'm missing or is Dana just a unisex name?

Katja3101

Chosen answer: Dana is a unisex name. I'm they changed it because of them keeping them without anyone knowing. If you recall Mary Alice's name used to be Angela. All their names were changed.

Baby (1) - S4-E20

Question: Hal and the boys are running back to the car with Reese stuck in the violin case. Which song is playing while Hal can't find the keys?

Show generally

Question: Which 1967 episode or what specific story line has Louis Edmonds in close-up because he didn't have time to put his pants back on?

Pkelly

Question: Why is Hermione wearing a bandage? I see no injury to her hand but when they travel back in time she has a bandage on her hand.

ForceSlytherin

Chosen answer: There's no reason given and it is not part of the story line. Most likely, at some point during the filming of this scene, Emma Watson suffered some minor injury and needed to wear a bandage.

Show generally

Question: Who exactly shouts, "Hello Wisconsin!" at the end of the opening credits? I've long assumed it was Topher Grace, but it sounds as though it could be Danny Masterson or Ashton Kutcher as well.

zendaddy621

Chosen answer: Danny Masterson is the one who screams "hello Wisconsin".

Question: When Buddy and Carolyn first meet at dinner, Buddy claims that his wife left him. At the motel (after Lester discovers Carolyn cheating with Buddy), Buddy says that he's "potentially facing a very expensive divorce." Why did he lie that his wife left him in the first place?

EK8829

Chosen answer: He wasn't lying that she'd left him. Sometimes when people break up, they don't initiate divorce proceedings right away, and some ex-couples don't bother going through divorce at all purely because it's too expensive. Sometimes, a reconciliation happens. He simply wasn't sure exactly what was going to be happening.
