The Smoking Jacket - S5-E6

Question: When Larry David goes to the Playboy mansion, everyone screams and runs away from him. Was there something I missed, like an inside joke or comment from an earlier show, to explain why? Or was something revealed later? Or is it just another case of strangers reacting oddly around Larry?

Little Diva - S1-E13

Question: What was the celebrity's name?

Chosen answer: Ashely Blake.

Question: When Deckard searches for hints in Leon's apartment he finds someone has been murdered in his shower. Who was the victim?

Julia von Maydell

Chosen answer: No-one was murdered in Leon's bathroom, Deckard just finds a scale from Zhora in the tub. There was a deleted scene of a dead woman in a bathtub in the Bradbury Building at the end when Deckard is fleeing from Batty.

Question: In the end Fink finally figures out the trick to the boot. How come the Germans don't use this trick, but drink the boot straightforward instead of spinning it like the Americans do?

Chosen answer: Overconfidence. The Germans are convinced that they'll never master Das Boot, so they're too busy watching for the Americans to fail to concentrate on their own boot.

Beck's Big Break - S1-E10

Question: At the end of the episode, the filmer's at the studio give Beck his job back, saying that they hated Melinda Murry. But if so, why didn't they just fire her and keep Beck in the movie earlier? Also, how does Beck get his job back at the time? Shouldn't his cut role have been filled in by then?

Answer: The Director hated working with Melinda, but knew that her superstar popularity and status would get his movie a big buzz and higher ratings. And the movie was discontinued for a re-audition to fill-in Melinda's leading/major role.

Question: I don't understand Grawp. Is he mentally slow, is he at a young age for a giant, or is he older than a young child but can't speak human English?

Chosen answer: Grawp was picked on by the other giants for being small by their standards. We're never told whether or not the giants have some kind of education system, but Grawp was either too busy being bullied to learn much until Hagrid rescued him, or they figured he was a runt and wasn't worth teaching since they expected him to die young.

Question: When Bond is having dinner with Kamel, they were served a stuffed sheep's head. Why did Bond say that he "lost his appetite" and not eat his sheep's head entree? (Could the camera zoom in of Gobinda's eye be a hint that the food was tainted?)

crawford188

Chosen answer: Bond is a world traveler and often samples the best that the local cuisine has to offer, however, even he has limits. Lots of people would lose their appetite upon seeing the severed head of an animal staring back at them on their plate. Kamal has also just told Bond how he plans to drug and interrogate him, so not eating or drinking anything would be a smart idea.

Question: Wouldn't the towers that hold up the train have cut Batman's cable long before he makes it to the train?

Chosen answer: Batman fires the grappling cable into the side of the train carriage, not the bottom, so it does not touch the rails or the supports.

Question: Why didn't Tony use the House Party Protocol when his home was being attacked?

Chosen answer: He is very arrogant. He either did not believe anyone would attack (and therefore did not prepare his other suits) or assumed his most recent prototype would be sufficient to fend off the attack.

Question: As many times as I've seen this movie, I don't understand how Pete comes to the conclusion that Miranda is not delusional in the end. We see him searching images of the tattoo she kept talking about, but I just don't understand how that would lead him to finally believe that she has been telling the truth. Can anyone explain this to me?

Sammi

Chosen answer: It's not that he fully believed her, but after doing some fact checking on the computer, he would find it odd that all the "nonsense" she was babbling about seemed to be true. He was most likely went to the police station to talk more about her visions.

Question: After the ferry boat goes down in flames, following the Medjai night attack, what town/city do O'Connell and the Carnahans end up in, on their way to Hamunaptra? It's the one where they buy the camels and Evy's new outfit.

KrystalFlare

Chosen answer: It's not a town, it's an unnamed Bedouin trading post. It's possible that a town was later built there, but it could have been a nomadic temporary camp.

Question: If Jorge Gonzales and other members of La Hermandad participated in the kidnapping, why does the La Hermandad president, Victor Fuentes, steal the ransom?

Chosen answer: La Hermandad wasn't entirely involved in the kidnapping. There were only a few members that were involved with "the voice". Jorge and his people stole the ransom because they are corrupt police and they wanted the ransom and split it among themselves.

Question: When Barb is putting Alice to bed, just as Barb turns off the light you can see something on Jill's bed. Is it just a reflection? What of?

SpiderWayne

Answer: It's not any problem and trouble in the film. Maybe it's just a reflection of light in the bed.

Question: How many people does Sid 6.7 kill in the film?

Gavin Jackson

Question: I never read the book, but have been bothered as to why no one pressed Bella for more answers after "Twilight" because it's obvious in following movies that the scar on her hand is a bite and not some 'fall through a glass window' which was used as an excuse for the rest of her injuries. Can anyone help me?

Chosen answer: There is no exact answer to this. It is one of many glossed over plot details that make no real sense. We are supposed to believe that everyone accepted that the scar was created by her supposedly falling down a flight of stairs and through a window.

Question: When Lex starts to reboot the place when the velociraptor is trying to get in, she selects the section of where they are, it shows a picture of a women posing. Why is it there?

Travis Race

Chosen answer: Given that it's Nedry's system and he took the time to create his Access Denied screen, there were probably little touches of his all over the code like that.

Captain Defenestrator Premium member

Answer: That was Nedry's desktop background or something. We see it a bit before he says he's going out to get something salty to eat. Since Lex was accessing the JP files, she might have gone through Nedry's page as well.

Question: Why did Creasy keep swimming in the pool after being shot?

Peniro77

Answer: To cleanse his bullet wounds and to try and keep in shape.

Also, felt closer to Peta through her swimming.

Answer: It was meant to recuperate damaged muscles after being shot at by kidnappers.

Chosen answer: Creasy swimming in the pool can be considered as as a way to be close to Pita. His blood in the water could also be interpreted as him and Pita becoming one.

Question: Who owned the Continental Hotel? Was is Winston or did he just run it for the owner?

Gary Stewart

Chosen answer: It was Winston. The guy John met up with in the basement of the hotel who gave John all the information he needed when he was trying to kill Iosef and Viggo.

Question: Why is the Woody roundup toy collection not alive?

Chosen answer: Not all toys are alive. I believe Andy has some Lincoln Logs that we never see moving around. It's probably down to having vaguely human or animal characteristics that gives them life.
