The Prestidigitation Approximation - S4-E18

Question: Why is Penny looking so happy when she sees Leonard and Priya in the restaurant and going into the restaurant and looking like she doesn't plan to leave and eats their food? Wouldn't Penny of all people know not to disturb someone during a date?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She's having a Leonard moment and not fully grasping the situation. She doesn't see her ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend having a romantic dinner, but two of her friends having a meal. Whether it was conscious or unconsciously is anyone's guess.

The Matrimonial Momentum - S9-E1

Question: In the previous episode Amy says she needs time to step back, but did she not think she was overreacting by taking a break just because Sheldon asked if he should start watching The Flash while they were making out?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Amy said she needed to take some time away from the relationship because she feared that their relationship wasn't going anywhere. They had already been dating for five years and they haven't actually gotten intimate after all this time, and when Sheldon asks if he should start watching The Flash, she was worried that he wasn't giving her as much attention towards her as she would have thought given the years that they had been dating.

Casual Person

Question: Priscilla tells Rango that Rattlesnake Jake never comes to Dirt due to his fear of the hawk, and much later after Rango kills the bird, Jake shows up. Shouldn't Jake have known that the shadow of the hawk wasn't the real thing since it was dead?

Chosen answer: There's more than one hawk in the world.

Question: What was the reason for Eggs' gross behavior at the ball, such as licking a woman's hand, and eating some cheese topped with a ladybug?

Question: Since Eggs could talk normally, and wore regular human clothing, should he have realised that he wasn't a Boxtroll the entire time?

Question: Despite all of the townspeople being shocked after Eggs reveals Madame Frou-Frou's true identity, why was Lord Portley-Rind more upset about Eggs accidentally knocking the cheese wheel into the lake?

Question: Why does Archibald Snatcher like eating cheese if he is so allergic to it?

Chosen answer: The White Hats are the social elite and the cheese they enjoy is a status symbol. Snatcher is emulating the social group he desperately wants to join, even though he is severely lactose intolerant.

Question: Vincent and Mia are shown smoking cigarettes inside Jackrabbit Slim's, but California has long been known to have some of the most restrictive anti-smoking laws in the US. While I'm aware that neither Vincent nor Mia was exactly law abiding, was smoking in restaurants in California still allowed at the time this film was made?

zendaddy621

Chosen answer: California passed a ban on restaurant smoking in 1994, as part of labor policies meant to protect the health of employees (such as bartenders, waitresses and bellhops) from the risks of secondhand smoke. However, "Pulp Fiction" was produced in 1993 and was released in 1994. The actual law did not take effect until 1995.

Question: In the movie, Buford shoots two flying bottles whilst holding the gun at his hip. Is that even possible?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Technically, yes, but no matter how adept the shooter, such a trick would always rely more on luck than skill. Shooting from the hip makes it impossible to aim any better than "in the general direction of the target."

Question: Was the waitress at the end meant to be Kira, or just someone who looked like her?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It's implied that it could be her, but there's no definitive answer as to whether or not it is. It's deliberately left to the audience's interpretation.

Question: What did the girl with super speed mean by where is Magneto's "mark" if he is so proud of being a mutant?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She was part of a group of mutants that called themselves "The Omegas" and accordingly they got tattoos of the omega symbol as a mark of pride.

Question: Where was Pyro when Magneto went to Jean's house and the professor was killed?

Chosen answer: We aren't told for certain, but given that he is Magneto's right-hand man, he may have been instructed to remain at their base camp in order to assume command of Magneto's army should Magneto's mission to recruit Jean have gone awry.

Question: Does Mrs Hobday's accent change from Welsh (beginning), then Scottish (half way through), then Welsh again (end)? I'm Welsh, and this has always bothered me.

Question: Here's something I'm confused about, and I've only seen this movie twice now; Why didn't Dr. Schultz shake Candie's hand to seal the deal? Also, why was Stephen, and Django himself, so disrespectful to their own kind? I know Stephen was "raised" by white folk but Django? His comment to the doctor doesn't make much sense. I hope I explained these enough; I'm just a little confused about all this.

Chosen answer: Dr. Schultz's pride coupled with his disdain for Candie wouldn't allow him to shake his hand. Stephen is unfortunately completely subservient to his white master, and is what is known to be an "Uncle Tom." Django's behavior towards fellow blacks is just a front he's putting on in order to get into Candie's good graces so he can rescue his wife.

Question: Why did Ziggy's equipment mess Derek up?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: After Rose rescues Jack from below decks, they run past Mr. Andrews, who's standing in front of a fireplace, leaning in towards it. What room is he in? It looks like the First Class Lounge, which deck plans show has a fireplace but it's towards the forward end of the ship, which means Mr. Andrews should have been leaning away from the fireplace since the incline was towards aft. I haven't been able to locate an answer to this.

JeStGr

Chosen answer: It's the First Class smoke room, which has the ship's only functional fireplace facing the fore. As the ship's fore (front) is pointing down into the water, Andrews is standing at a tilt against the incline, so his stance is tilted towards the ship's aft and therefore he is leaning against the fireplace.

Question: Where did he find time to get another clip to kill the hillbillies but no bullets to kill the sick friend in the shed? After his other friend's head was blown open?

Answer: I think he had the safety on in the shed and they used the clicking to show it was not firing.

Answer: He used a different gun.

Question: Pierce asked Cap if Fury told Cap that Fury was the one who bugged it, but what did Fury bug?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: They were talking about the apartment Steve Rogers lives in. Pierce is saying Nick Fury bugged Cap's apartment, one of his own agents.

Bishop73

Question: Why did Winthrope try another exchange of suitcase (on the train, with Bleeks) and got caught, when Valentine already made such an attempt before and was successful in it?

[email protected]

Chosen answer: They had to make sure what the crop report said before they could put a fake report in so they can fool the Dukes. Basically Valentine got the case and gave it to Winthorpe. Whinthorpe removed the crop report and replaced it with a fake one. Then he had to get the fake to Bleeks.
