Question: Why did Bugsy trap the waitress inside the phone booth and leave?

[email protected]

Answer: He didn't have the money to pay the diner bill, so he called the operator, in the phone booth, to call the diner number to test the line.

Question: Was the fairy godmother the one who cast the ogre spell on Fiona?

Answer: In the first movie Fiona says that it was a witch that cast the spell on her when she was a little girl.

That witch could have been fairy godmother disguised as a witch.

Answer: Possibly. It's confirmed the fairy godmother locked her in that tower, and her son Prince Charming was supposed to go there and kiss her so she would not transform into an ogre anymore. However the curse worked in reverse and the fairy godmother told Fiona she was still cursed because she was still an ogre. But it is never stated she put the curse on her.

Question: Why couldn't Bruce become Hulk?

oswal13

Answer: Although many fans speculated it was because the Hulk fears Thanos after Thanos easily defeated him at the beginning of the film, the Russo brothers have since come out and said that it's because the Hulk feels that Banner only wants the Hulk around for helping him in fights, so his refusal to transform is a protest of sorts.

Phaneron Premium member

I think it's both.

Well it's not both. The Russo Brothers, who directed the film, have openly stated that the Hulk is not afraid of Thanos.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: Because he doesn't like being used as a tool and he also is summoned in two places he's already destroyed: New York and Africa. Those are two places he's shown regret for the damage he's caused, which caused him to leave in the first place.

DetectiveGadget85

Answer: Cause Hulk is afraid of Thanos.

Answer: It has been speculated that Banner is in fact Loki shape-shifted, which is why he has problems transforming.

That's a fan theory with no merit to it. Banner is shown trying to transform into the Hulk while inside the Hulkbuster armor. There's no reason Loki would try to fake a transformation where no one could see it. Banner is also shown explaining to Shuri how he and Tony Stark created Vision, and we also see his awkward reunion with Black Widow. Both of those are things Loki would have no knowledge of.

Question: How exactly were Dracula's servants successful in stopping Van Helsing in 1897? What did the monster hunters do wrong?

Answer: They caused enough chaos and terror in the hunters that the girl couldn't focus on reading the incantation. Van Helsing was desperately trying to get her to hurry up and finish but she just couldn't get it done in time with everything going on around her. Apparently Van Helsing's group was not prepared for the undead bursting from the ground and frightening everyone.

Question: Was there a deleted scene where Clint tells Cap that he is definitely retired this time?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: No, Civil War barely has any deleted scenes, and not one between Cap and Hawkeye.

Friso94

Question: Is it really possible to shoot a door open like the pirates do in the movie when they reach the bridge?

Answer: Probably not. The Mythbusters tested the myth of shooting open a locked door, and in most cases, it took immense and multiple fire power to blow open a lock.

Question: I don't understand that when Cheng keeps picking on Dre, he's telling Dre to stay away from him and his friends. Can someone please explain that?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It is a common bullying tactic, telling someone to "stay away" from you knowing they cannot. Kids who go to the same school or live in the same neighborhood are bound to run into each other. It just gives the bully an excuse to antagonize the victim whenever they do run into each other because the victim isn't following orders to "stay away."

E-Mail Surveillance - S2-E9

Question: When Angela is buying the Baby Ruths, most of the other candies are turned backwards (I assume to avoid product placement). But above the Baby Ruth is one with the name facing forward that looks like it's called "Picaroon." Is this a real candy bar that's local to the Scranton area or just completely made up? If it's made up, any inside information about where the name came from or if there's an inside joke or show reference to it?

Bishop73

Answer: There does not appear to be a real candy bar by that name. The word is real, however. It refers to someone who is a rogue, a scoundrel, a thief, or an otherwise dubious character.

My Best Friend's Wedding - S3-E22

Question: What is the name of the song Ted's band plays at the end?

The_Iceman Premium member

Answer: Eight days a week by the Beatles.

Question: At the end, how does Joe know where to dig?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: Earlier in the film, it's mentioned that he had some money buried in a special spot in his yard, but that it had been dug up. When he saw the shovel at the end (which indicates that something was buried that he should did up), he realised that the new money stash had been buried in the same spot as his old stash. They basically gave him the clue, and he put two-and-two together on his own.
