Question: Two questions. 1) Why does the Sultan pick on Iago all the time - force feeding him stale crackers and when he's on the magic carpet, chasing after him? 2) Why is the Sultan so rough with the magic carpet? When he goes for a ride on it after Aladdin shows up at the palace as Prince Ali, he rides it around the palace in such a reckless manner that when he's finished, the carpet can barely walk.

Question: The penguins were left behind when the zoo closed. Who/what kept them alive? Oswald?
Question: What kept the police from going into the sewers to retrieve Oswald?
Question: When Ben starts flipping through the book about the history of Derry, he begins seeing the same page being repeated several times. While this is happening, some children's voices can be heard singing. What exactly were they saying?
Question: When the guy on bath salts realises the food is alive, what are the two white lumps that are out of focus that were used by him?
Question: The mechanic tells Biff the price of Biff's car is $300. Does that include the damage Biff caused to the truck he hit if the first film and also the price of the horse manure that had to be hauled away? I know Biff goes into a store across the street for a few seconds so we don't hear part of the argument. Wouldn't Biff have to pay more than $300, or was the $300 just for the car itself?
Question: Doc Brown's workshop at the beginning of the movie strikes me as highly reminiscent of the one belonging to Caractacus Potts in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, right down to the elaborate food-dispensing mechanisms. Potts also had a dog named Edison in that movie, just as Doc has one named Einstein. Were these similarities intended as a deliberate homage, or are they just similar expressions of the "mad scientist" trope?
Question: Given that the entire McFly family's circumstances have changed at the end of the movie due to Marty altering the past, shouldn't Marty's whole life have gone down a completely different path from childhood on? What are the odds that he even still knows Doc and Jennifer in the revised 1985 (let alone has the exact same date planned with Jennifer for the very same evening), given that everything else has changed?
Question: If the Kaiju are artificially created clones, why do they have parasites?
Question: Were there scenes in the movie that were shot but deleted? There is evidence in the movie that at least two scenes were cut. (1) Near the beginning of the movie, there is a scene outside Big Kay's Burgers in which Packard is bullying Billy Hankins to make him race his Triumph. While that's going on, the Turbo shows up and revs its engine. Packard asks Rughead what kind of car that was and Rughead answers that he didn't know but would find out after they had added the Turbo to their "collection." Oggie Fisher then asks Packard "come on, let me take him this time." This suggests that the gang had encountered the Turbo earlier in the movie and had not been able to catch it. Also, when Oggie lines up with the Turbo to just before the race, Packard tells Oggie "I want you to rip this guy a new asshole." Why was Packard so angry at the Turbo's driver if he had never seen him before and didn't know how fast the Turbo was? There must have been an earlier scene involving the Turbo and Packard's gang. (2) In the scene in the warehouse, just before the Wraith shows up with the shotgun, there is an odd conversation between Packard and Minty. Packard starts to ask Minty something but Minty interrupts, saying "yeah, don't worry, I got those elbow joints sold to the Dallas boys for $2900." Packard then smiles and says "yeah, that old man was pretty pissed off." There must have been an earlier scene where the gang rips off the "old man" and steals a bunch of elbow joint to resell and raise money. That would explain how they got the elbow joints, why Minty sold them and why Packard said what he did. Anyone know about deleted scenes?
