Answer: Because his pyjamas got torn when he was at the Coco Bongo - when he's shot at as the Mask, the piece of his tie that falls off transforms back into his pyjamas.

Answer: Luan must have an intention of seriously hurting her family. If not, she would be a normal person.

Answer: Most likely because at the time, Hippies represented the counter-culture, which is/was in direct opposition to the conservative generation of the mother and not something Marilyn would want associated with the Lovells family given their high profile.

Question: Why did Finch get upset when Creedy brought up his mom being a prisoner at some facility?

Answer: It is implied that Finch's mother (and, indeed, his whole family) was actually killed during the Norsefire Party's genocidal rise to power several years earlier. Although both Creedy and Finch are now members of the Norsefire Party, Creedy suspects that Finch may still harbor a grudge against the Party and is, therefore, untrustworthy. In this scene, Creedy is needling Finch about his mother's death, attempting to provoke an angry response. Creedy is testing Finch's loyalty.

The Juror - S7-E7

Question: Why was Ben on a jury? Wouldn't being a lawyer make him exempt from jury duty?

Answer: No, being a lawyer doesn't exempt one from serving jury duty. Although during jury selection one of the trying lawyers may want to have the lawyer stricken from the jury.

Question: At the diner, why was Rizzo mad at Kenickie? She seemed to be mad at him about something and I get the feeling that it wasn't because of how he ate his burger.

Answer: He was being a jerk and insensitive. But really she was worried she was pregnant and that made her have a short fuse.

Answer: Kenickie said Rizzo had the personality of a wet mop. After Rizzo said "Don't start with me!", Kenickie put his arm around Frenchy and said "Eureka, how about I finish with you." which means that Kenickie was going to break up with Rizzo. Rizzo thought that Kenickie put his arm around Frenchy because he was going to dump her for Frenchy. He didn't, though.

Answer: No, earlier on there was a big argument between Kinickie and Rizzo that was cut from the movie and that's why they were upset with each other in that scene.

Is there a clip of it?

Question: Ted's friend Dom knows a guy who can find Mary for him. Later on it's revealed that Dom is also Woogie, Mary's old boyfriend who got weird on her and is still obsessed with her. However, if Dom knew Healy could find Mary why didn't he use him himself to find Mary and stalk her again?

lionhead

Answer: Mary mentions to Dom that there was a restraining order against him, which was the first reason. But he also mentioned he spent 9 years in therapy sessions trying to get past their former relationship. This would suggest Dom hadn't considered trying to find Mary until Ted took the lead.

Question: When Eddie goes to see Dan about the test results, Dan says that the symbiote is damaging Eddie's organs but Venom says it's part of the symbiosis. Was Venom really damaging Eddie's body? If not, what was he really doing?

Answer: Venom was using Eddie, much like Riot, to invade Earth. Venom was damaging Eddie's body until he grew to like him, which is why he said he could fix it while Dan was telling Eddie all of this.

Answer: If they are not sustained by other nutrients (like lobster) they will start feeding on the host. Venom was doing that to Eddie, until he is fed.

lionhead

Answer: I believe you are describing s09e14, "200." Although it was the road side bomb that caused the miscarriage.

Bishop73

Answer: It is never really made clear what the age difference was when she babysat for him. She mentions at one point that he was eight, but that is about it. It isn't stated how long he has been a lawyer, so perhaps he became a lawyer, and gotten a job at the firm he works for fairly recently.

Answer: No, not in the slightest. The names are similar, but it's an entirely new and different story.

Question: Why was Sorrento's avatar's eyes glowing yellow when he first sees Irock then turn blue after he sighs? Was this a reference to Superman's heat vision? I don't get it. Does his Clark Kent looking avatar have those powers?

Answer: Sorrento's avatar's eyes are an indication of his mood. Blue is calm, but they flare yellow or orange the more agitated, upset, alarmed or angry he is. They only go completely red once - just before he sets off the Cataclyst.

Answer: Ironically, in a movie full of pop culture references in nearly every scene, this particular thing does not seem to be a direct reference to anything in particular. If this was supposed to be an indication of Superman's heat vision the color of the eyes would most certainly have been red, the color that is almost universally used for Superman's heat vision. The eyes seem to be yellow while Sorrento is in shadow and blue when he is not. Either that or the eyes just change color at random for no apparent reason other than Sorrento thinks it looks cool.

Question: Why is Peter still bullied by people in school even though he is in college? I'm referring to the scene where people hit him with backpacks and call him names as well as the scene in "Spider-Man 3" where he is bullied in Dr. Connors' class.

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: Other students see him as a nerd and a teacher's pet.

Question: Why would Flash Thompson of all people attend Harry's funeral? He bullied Peter and Harry in the first movie.

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: It had been a few years since they were in high school. Perhaps Flash had matured since then and realised his behaviour towards them was wrong, so he came to pay his respects.

Casual Person

This is true to the comics. Eventually Flash matures and becomes close friends with both Peter and Harry.

Answer: Sandman is a fugitive who is on the run. It is more than likely that his name has appeared in the news at some point. His daughter and her illness would likely have also been mentioned as well. Seeing as how Eddie worked at the Daily Bugle, it shouldn't have took long for him to put two and two together.

Casual Person

The symbiote (which turned Eddie into Venom) usually has its previous owner's memories. So Eddie might have known about Sandman's daughter through Peter's memories.

But Peter doesn't seem to know he had a daughter and shows surprise when he's told of her at the end.

Rob245

Supposedly there is a deleted scene where Venom finds out about Sandman's daughter but it was cut for time, so it ends up creating a little bit of a plot hole in the final film.

Answer: Christine was extremely close to her father, who spoke to her of an "Angel of Music" whom he would send from heaven after his death. Christine entered the Paris Conservatoire and trained for four years to become an opera singer to please her father. However, by the end of the four years, she had lost her passion for singing and the music. When Christine arrives at the Opéra Garnier, she was described as "sounding like a rusty hinge." That is when Erik, the Phantom of the Opera, began to speak to Christine during times that she went, alone, to the chapel in the Opera House. Erik began to tutor her, telling her that he is the "Angel of Music" of whom her father had spoken.

Question: When Eddie is in his apartment trying to eat, Venom tells him not to answer the door. After that, there's a knock on the door. How was Venom able to tell that there was someone outside Eddie's apartment?

Answer: The symbiote has heightened senses. It could hear someone approaching.

Question: Why did Terry and Erin put the kids in one bedroom at first? They had another room anyway, as is revealed when they suddenly make the new bedroom for Ruby, before the social worker visits. And if they want the kids to trust them, it would make sense to give a teenage girl her own room.

Answer: Terry told them when they first moved in that it was only going to be temporary so that they would think that they would eventually get separate rooms, but I think they always intended to keep Ruby and Rhett together in the same room so that they could easily monitor their movements. The only reason they quickly knocked up a second room (for Ruby) for when the social worker came, was to carry on the charade of being responsible guardians for them, and they knew if the social worker saw that a teenage girl and her younger brother were sharing, it would raise red flags, and they needed everyone to believe that they were responsible enough guardians, so that they could keep the kids and eventually get their hands on the trust.

Question: If Parker was possessing Josh throughout the whole movie, why didn't he just kill Josh's family right off the bat instead of waiting until close towards the end of the movie?

Brandon York

Answer: He answered that while chasing Renai, it was because at first he didn't really want to but his mom kept planting seeds in his head and telling him that if he doesn't he's going to die and towards the end you can tell he was very close to dying so he gave in and try to kill the family. Also throughout the whole movie it talked about the fact that his mother basically forced him to kill people.
