Question: Why would he have to steal the money from the bank? Given everything else he makes.

Answer: While under the influence of the mask, Stanley repeatedly gets revenge on people that have wronged him. The Mask wouldn't even need to create money out of thin air to get into the club since he could just use his powers to get in, so since he feels that he is mistreated at the bank, he robs it.

Answer: Nothing he makes while The Mask is permanent, and when separated from him reverts or disappears, as we see with the piece of pajama. If he made money, for example to get into the club, then immediately after giving it to the people and walking inside, it would vanish, probably causing him then to be thrown out. As Phaneron said, in addition, by robbing the bank to get it, he also strikes back at one of those he feels mistreats him.

Question: Why does Rosemary change her hairstyle in the movie and why did Terry die?

Answer: Terry was murdered by the the Castevets, but why is unclear. Terry may have become suspicious about Roman and Minnie and the reason they had taken her into their home. It may also be that once they met Rosemary and Guy, they found Rosemary to be a more suitable "mother." Regarding Rosemary's hair. When she became pregnant, she experienced severe and constant pain keeping her housebound. She finally decided not to give into it anymore and made an effort to go about her normal life, having lunch with Hutch, getting a new haircut, planning a party for her and Guy's old friends that they never saw anymore, and so on. It was only after she threatened Guy to go back to her original doctor that a spell was apparently put on her to stop the pain.

Terry may have actually committed suicide (with a little 'help') because she couldn't face the fact that she was to be used to procreate with Satan. This is indicated if you listen to Ruth Gordon's voice as the nun in Rosemary's "dream" when Rosemary was actually overhearing Minnie through the wall, chastising Roman with "If you had listened to me we wouldn't have to do this! We would have been all set to go instead of having to start from scratch! I told you not to tell her in advance. I told you she wouldn't be open-minded!"

Answer: They may have found out that Terry was not healthy-or fertile-enough, is my guess.

Question: What was the CD he was playing while Creasy was attempting to kill himself?

Answer: Blue Bayou by Linda Ronstadt.

Answer: Blue Bayou.

Answer: Even though there were three guys - three vs. two - Fuller and Lewis together would be more difficult to bully than Lewis by himself. Some people are tough when they can intimidate one person, but not quite so confident when that person has help.

Question: Why did the ghosts of the Elisabeth Dane try to kill Stevie?

Answer: Six lives for the six members who betrayed them a hundred years ago.

'But Stevie wasn't connected to the six conspirators.

The ghosts didn't care about their victims' lineage.

Question: What age is Andy in this movie?

Answer: In Toy Story, Andy's birthday is in the summer (Sid was at camp and "must've been kicked out early"), with Andy presumably turning 6 years old and Molly approx 10-12 months old (she's not more than a 1 year old), then at the end of Toy Story it's Christmas, which is at least 4 months later. In Toy Story 2, it's August when Andy goes to cowboy camp, then at the end of the movie Andy's mom encourages Molly as the toddler walks toward her. So it seems Toy Story 2 takes place the following summer after the family's move, which is 1 year after the start of Toy Story, with Andy having just turned 7 and Molly being about 2 years old. If, however, Toy Story 2 takes place 2 years after the start of Toy Story, that would mean Andy just turned 8 and Molly would be about 3 and delayed at walking on her own.

Question: So if Thomas Wayne is Arthur's father does that mean that he and Bruce Wayne are brothers?

Answer: Half brothers, yes, provided Thomas really is Arthur's father.

Question: Why does Pennywise feed on the adult at the start? I thought he only fed on children as seen in the previous movie and this movie. Or is it fear that he feeds on? I haven't read the book so maybe it's better explained in there.

Answer: Pennywise eats Adrian Mellon because he has just awoken from his sleep and is hungry. Pennywise will feed on anyone but prefers his victims to be afraid because the meal is more satisfying. It is described in the book as like "salting the meat." Likewise, Pennywise prefers children because their fear is more intense.

Season 1 generally

Question: I've been watching through Season 1, and haven't gotten further than that yet while paying attention. But any time there is a scene in the kitchen when them at the table, Stewie is always seated in the same spot at the table with his char having its back to the cabinet next to the sink. On the counter top directly behind Stewie in each episode, there is a pink rectangular item sitting there, and I have seen it in every episode of season 1. What is that item? Is it a sponge or a scrub thing? Why is it pink?

Quantom X Premium member

Answer: It is just a dish sponge. Scotch-Brite sells pink sponges. There's no particular reason it's pink, it could just show Lois likes pink or one of the animators grew up in a home that always had a pink sponge.

Question: When they go into Sam's room, Jay tries it on with his girlfriend. What does he say to the girl... It sounds like "Sorry I did this to you, it's because you are so fat" but then after they run off, he asks her out and she says "Yeah yeah, I'm your cow" Did I mishear something? Why would you want to be with someone who just said the reason he can't get an erection is "because you are so fat"?

Answer: Unless I'm mistaken, you misheard. It is implied that they sleep together and he climaxes in a matter of seconds. He then apologises to the girl that he didn't last longer and blamed it on her "being so fit." Also, she says "I'm your girl" not "I'm your cow"

Question: How did Luke and Leia know that Rey was Palpatine's granddaughter?

Answer: They felt it through the force. It's kinda like a signature. They feel each other's powers and recognize it. Both have met the Emperor and they felt similar powers inside Rey.

Question: Where is the mailbox with the Abbott's name on it?

Question: How did Meghan get from the boat to the house?

Answer: There is a man in the house who brings Meghan some food to eat. I think he was the one who took her there.

Question: How did the football players die exactly?

Answer: After returning to Juno's office, the quarterback tells her that he doesn't think they survived the crash.

Answer: Eustace is a rather two-dimensional antagonist character. He is just a mean-spirited man who takes out his hostilities on a vulnerable dog and resents his wife having adopted him.

I thought the reason had to do with the attention Courage receives from Muriel.

Question: Why does Arthur kill his mother? Does he feel she lied to him about his father? Maybe his madness going further? Perhaps even he wanted to end her suffering?

Rob245

Answer: I'd probably rule out of the last reason you mentioned, on the first one you have to consider that the lie goes deeper than just the father's identity, if that is a lie at all. Through the information he saw on the medical record - and he kills her after seeing that record - it turns out that she had let him be abused and beaten up since a tender age, which would probably be the cause of his mental and physical issues. In his line before the murder, he mentions her full name, and how he has not been happy a minute of his whole life, so the terrible childhood, which maybe now came back to him, is a real factor. Mentioning the comedy, so a play, might also imply a sort of detachment now that he understands that it was all a lie from the beginning and she's not even his real mother (if that's what he believes).

Question: Before the Summer Nights scene, Kenickie asks "Did you see the new girl down at registration?" Is the girl he's referring to Sandy?

Question: Where is the fourth Delta operative of Hoot's team when they get to the second crash site on foot? There is a Pvt. 'Adonis' instead.

Answer: The episode is "A Totally Fun Thing That Bart Will Never Do Again."

Question: How could the girls not see that Martha was a boy? In the movie his voice is deep well until Kim came to visit him.

Answer: Maybe they just thought he had a deep voice for a girl. I also thought about that, like when the girls hug Martha he's a guy - no boobs - but it's just a fun movie.

Answer: Cross-dressing is a time honored tradition in comedy and it requires quite a bit of suspension of disbelief to enjoy. A character who is obviously a boy to the audience but none of the characters noticing is a big part of what makes these films funny.
