Question: I think it is the scene near the end when they are singing "Make the world go away", they pan the audience and zoom in on Amy Irving. Is that Arlo Guthrie in front of her? Sure looks like him.

Answer: I think so.

The Tale of the Virtual Pets - S6-E4

Question: When Kate first sees her friends Isabel and Tom both trapped in the handhelds, Why did she ignore the other two also trapped in it as well? She never talked to them the whole scene.

Question: After the rex attacks the trailer, Eddie arrives and the first thing Ian asks is where Kelly is. Eddie's response is "She's in the high hide." We see that it is lifted and lowered using the winch on the Mercedes car. They took two cars and the trailers to the island, one car is the one Nick and Sarah used to take the baby rex back to the trailer (and is later knocked over the cliff). The other car is the one that WAS powering the hide. How can Kelly still be in the high hide if Eddie uses that car to try and pull the trailers back up?

Answer: He probably went down the same way Malcolm did and somehow locked the hide into position so he could detach it and use the jeep. Without a winch it only could not go up or down again. Later the other people got her out of the hide using the same type of winch.

Question: What is the song when Evan is in the lecture room talking with his professor and then he rides his bike to his dorm? Not the Ap2, but it sounds like an electric guitar with distortion and an acoustic guitar.

Answer: The Shazam app on my phone didn't recognize it, so it is probably just some nameless incidental music composed for the movie.

Question: As we learned later that Lt Einhorn killed Roger Podactor, how did Einhorn get out of the big apartment after murdering him without being seen? The manager who is at the crime scene doesn't seem to recognize her.

Answer: The old lady said that she heard a scream and called the police. That could easily leave several minutes when she could escape through a back exit or merely hide in the building until after other police get there and said she just arrived. There is no reason to assume that the manager knows everyone who comes into the building, especially if she had only been there a few times.

Question: Just before Ferris makes it into his house, Ed Rooney appears and finally catches Ferris. Just as he's about to lay into Ferris, Jeanie appears and covers for him. As soon as Ferris gets in the house, Jeanie shows Ed Rooney his wallet and mentions that she found it on the floor causing him to be shocked. After being chased off by the dog, why did Rooney simply give up?

Answer: Rooney had gotten so carried away with trying to catch Ferris skipping school, that he illegally entered the Bueller house. Jeannie found his wallet and had proof that he had trespassed, an act that could get him arrested and fired from his job. She is blackmailing him to leave. He knew he'd lost and left.

Question: Why did the police officers shoot Rolanda after she got out of the elevator when she hollered "No!" at them and wasn't going to do anything?

Question: Why do they look into the scope soon as it starts to rise? The view part would still be in the water.

Answer: A good submarine skipper ensure he always has a low periscope profile, as it's easily seen when out of the water too much. That's why he looks through the scope even while underwater, so the scope is only just out of the water.

stiiggy

Answer: It was probably a deliberate mistake by the filmmakers to keep the action and plot moving quickly, rather than realistically waiting for the periscope to be fully out of the water.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: Why didn't Javed like the sandwich Jamal made for him?

Answer: The film does not explain, but O-ren's parents must have been involved in some sort of shady business dealings to have incurred the wrath of Matsumoto. When he is killed, O-ren's father is wearing the uniform of a United States Army Sergeant Major (pay grade E-9), which is the top rank of an enlisted man. He must have been working with Matsumoto in some sort of illegal smuggling ring that involved international connections through the U.S. Army that went bad, or maybe O-ren's father wanted more money and he was in the way, etc.

lionhead

Answer: Spider-Man's powers are part of his DNA, so since the symbiote bonded with him, it was able to absorb Spidey's DNA into itself.

Question: When Damien killed Mark, he screamed and started to cry. Was he truly upset that he killed him, or was he putting on a show for his aunt and uncle?

Answer: Damien is still very conflicted, having thought of himself as a regular boy his entire life. While he is slowly embracing his nature, he hasn't lost his emotions, and he's crying because he's actually sad that he had to kill his friend.

Answer: He was truly upset, as he had not come to terms with being the Antichrist yet.
