Question: When Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan arrive on Tatooine they feel a disturbance in the force. Is this due to The Sith Lord or Anakin?

Chosen answer: Most likely it was Anakin's presence, as Darth Maul arrived on Tatooine after Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan.

The Eyes Have It - S5-E6

Question: At one point in this episode, a photo of an Oklahoma driver's license is shown. Is Oklahoma misspelled?

Darren Bergeron

Chosen answer: No, it's spelled correctly. It's written in cursive so it might just seem misspelled.

Question: What does Thorin Oakenshield yell in dwarven to Smaug the dragon in Erebor?

Chosen answer: The Dwarrow Scholar website isn't sure, but suggests it sounds like "Ikhriyi zuzĂ´'z!", meaning "Release the links [of the statue mould]."

Question: Why didn't Anakin or Obi-Wan or Yoda simply slash Dooku's ship to prevent his escape?

Chad LaMar Alvord

Chosen answer: They likely thought that they'd be able to defeat him without having to make sure he didn't escape. Easily explained character mistakes all around.

Captain Defenestrator

Beck's Big Break - S1-E10

Question: Why did Jade break up with Beck?

Chosen answer: Jade breaks up with Beck because he was hanging out with another girl, which she didn't like.

Question: How was Sara so sure that there was no engineer on the train, considering that she was not able to get to the front carriage to find out?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Most likely from the speed at which the train was going, a train is like driving any large vehicle. You have to maintain a certain pace, to stop at an instant, for the unexpected.

My Day Off - S1-E9

Question: What is the song playing at the nightclub "The Free Clinic" when JD walks in to see Turk dancing with Jennifer?

Heather Northcombe

Chosen answer: "Absolutely Wasted" by Sporting Riff Raff. Sample lyric: "I wanna get rinsed / get off my face / wanna have a party now in this place / get plastered, pasted, absolutely wasted."

Michael Albert

Question: What is the significance of the wound and blood we see on the back of Ray Liotta when he takes off his coat for a minute? The camera focuses in, so it is important, but I have never figured that out. It almost seems just where the wound would be where he stabbed the cop who was driving his car.

Chosen answer: It's the cop's clothes. He takes them after killing him so he wouldn't have to settle for wearing his own prison uniform while a fugitive.

Serious B

Question: A nit-picky question, but why did Hermione tear out a book's page of information about the basilisk? I have read the novel and Professor McGonagall says that she was found *near* the library when petrified, not *in* it. So I am puzzled about why she would want to damage a book instead of borrowing it.

Chosen answer: A number of books in the library were restricted - either they were off limits to students or they could be read but not checked out. This was probably such a book. Hermione loved books, and would not normally approve of damaging them, but this was too important to her, and she needed that specific information. Of course, it also serves the overall plot because Harry finds the page after she's been petrified, and he is able to glean clues from it.

Question: Why can't the video just be passed to inmates on death row?

Chosen answer: Who says it can't?

MasterOfAll

Question: Several times near the end of the movie, there is a biker type man. He is wearing some Harley Davidson clothing and a black leather cap. He is one of the pilots. He stands out if he is just an extra. Is he anyone famous?

Chosen answer: He is just an extra, who just happens to be in more shots then the other extras. He is not more famous than the other extras.

Answer: In the book of the same name, this man is called "Pig". He was a test pilot during the Vietnam War. He played a crucial role in training the new pilots.

Question: So what are these tournaments called in China? I'm trying to find one similar to them but am having a hard time.

Chosen answer: There are known as Wushu tournaments. Wushu means martial arts in Chinese.

Question: As a term of endearment, Eyal always calls Annie "neshama." I'm assuming it's Hebrew, but what does it mean?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: It is Hebrew. It means "soul" but is used as a term of endearment as in you're a part of me, "Neshama shellee" means "my soul".

Question: Is there any reference to other witches, besides the sisters, that have vanquished a source? Or are they the only witches ever to be powerful enough? The source does have the ability to be reconstituted with a spell in the grimoire.

Chosen answer: The sisters are the only witches that have been powerful enough to vanquish the source, gaining their strength from the power of 3.

Dr. Nobel - S1-E6

Question: If the death ray is about to go off and they are trying to restore the doctor's memory, why does Henry get dressed up for the ceremony, but then has time to change and get back in the hole he's digging to access the power source when no one else takes the time to change? If they have given up on the hole, why would he even change back? If they haven't, why would he waste time at the ceremony?

Chosen answer: He did not change, he just put on some kind of gown over what he was wearing.

Bowling255

Question: How could they possibly remove Archer's bullet scar? If they could, wouldn't that just create a bigger scar?

raph

Chosen answer: Surgical scar removal is a real thing, usually involving skin grafts or lasers. Keloid scarring is a result of the body aggressively attempting to heal/repair itself after trauma or injury (in this case, the gunshot). With proper surgical techniques, the body isn't traumatized to the point that deep scarring occurs. Of course, just like with the face surgery, the movie exaggerates the results of the scar removal.

Bishop73

Question: At the end, how did Wanda know that "Castor" was really Archer?

raph

Chosen answer: Because Eve told her.

Greg Dwyer

Question: Why were Pollux and Archer sent straight to prison without a trial?

raph

Chosen answer: It's obvious that enough time hasn't passed for a trial of such magnitude to take place, meaning that the brothers have been remanded in custody to await trial. They should have been arraigned but we don't see that onscreen.
