Question: I have a few questions. 1) Did Mother Gothel betray the Stabbington Brothers by knocking them unconscious? 2) How did Eugene know that the old lady was Mother Gothel once the Stabbington Brothers told him that? 3) How did Eugene get the idea that Rapunzel was in trouble once he thought of the old lady?
Question: What is the significance of the bar scene they keep cutting to during the live aid performance? It does not appear to be the same door that Freddie first played with Smile so I'm not sure the significance. Also, who is the blonde guy with glasses sitting next to Bob Geldof when Bob is asking for money? That's supposed to be someone famous?
Question: When Steve injured himself making the spear for fishing and Charles helped to treat his wound, he asked Bob to bury the cloth. Did Bob hang the cloth in a tree intentionally? Or did he just not know that other animals could smell that for miles? Especially the bear they had encountered beforehand.
Question: When the lights went out in the toilet den, why did Phil try to start a lighter and how did the whole den explode?
Question: When the men are at the statehouse, what are they arguing about?
Question: Why did Ripley attack the hive near the end of the film? Firstly, she had Newt with her, she knew that the planet was going to explode, she had little time to get out, and if she hadn't attacked the hive, the Alien queen wouldn't have gone after her. Ripley utterly hated the Aliens, but she is intelligent and Corporal Hicks had earlier praised her tactical thinking - attacking the hive was foolish.
Question: What is Ramses drinking at the party?
Question: Why does the weather and road/ground change so much (dry, rain storm, wet, snow) in the beginning of the movie from the kitchen to the train station?
Question: How did the phone booths, the trolley, and the vending machines end up in the digiworld?
Question: So who turned out to be A. Friend? I just got lost on that issue. (04:53:00)
