Question: How did the hospital ghost, cemetery ghost and Subway ghost know that Sam was a ghost too?

Answer: New ghosts (such as Sam) apparently go through a learning process, exploring their abilities. Sam had to learn how to pass through solid objects, move solid objects, enter another human's body, etc. Obviously, the older ghosts had additionally learned to distinguish between the living and the dead.

Question: Is it ever said what Otto Delaney did to be put in prison?

Answer: He was initially given a 6-year sentence for grand theft auto and 2nd degree murder, but then he committed various criminal acts for samcro and kept getting his sentence extended. At the end of season 3 it's implied he'll be set to death row for murdering Squirrel and because he's continuously aggressive. (Although, an initial 6-year sentence for 2nd degree murder doesn't seem likely without some plea bargain where Otto also gives someone else up or gives useful information, that results in arrest, about some criminal enterprise. This seems out of character for Otto, especially since he stabbed a rat while in prison. And I don't recall any information given about how he had such a short, initial prison term).

Question: How is Camp Green Lake legal? Aren't there laws against forced child labor? Also, what would happen if Stanley refused to dig holes?

raph

Answer: It is illegal. That's why everyone in charge gets arrested at the end. It only lasted as long as it did because they were in the middle of nowhere with little to no oversight and no on knew what was really going on until Stanley's release.

Wait then why did the judge know about it? Did he get arrested too?

Answer: Stanley and his fellow prisoners are convicted criminals, and as such, the authorities are allowed to work them. The conditions in the movie are rather extreme, but what recourse do the boys have? The warden and her flunkies are brutal people, and it's likely Stanley would have been in a world of hurt had he refused to dig. All they'd have to say is Stanley attacked them and whatever force they used would have been justified. That's the penal system for you.

Question: What is the brand name and model of the eye glasses Mulder wears in the first season?

Question: Was the ghostwriter murdered? Why? The book had already been published, and he only discovered the truth about Ruth minutes before, so who would have wanted him dead?

Answer: Who would want him dead? Ruth, for one, as well as Professor Emmett (her CIA recruiter) and others involved in the conspiracy. Yes, the book had been published, but the secret message only comes across if one is in possession of all the knowledge that the writer had acquired, which the casual reader would not have. And minutes is plenty of time for Ruth, Emmett, or anyone else to make a phone call and arrange the hit.

Question: Wouldn't Ocean's crew all be broke at the end, since the $198 million check includes Tolour's $97 million plus all of the combined money they had left?

Answer: No, Tolour agrees to pay Ocean's crew's debt to Benedict if they win. $97 million is what they're short at the time of the conversation.

Question: How come Charlie didn't go to the burrow for Christmas?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: In the books, Charlie worked with dragons in Romania, so it may have been that he was too busy and too far away to make the trip back home for Christmas. For the purpose of the movie, there is no explanation given, but it is less confusing to have fewer characters present if they serve no real purpose to the story line. Charlie Weasley has always been a minor background character.

Question: When Freddy is killing Tina and slices her body she wakes up right before she gets picked up in the air and dragged across the ceiling. Wouldn't Freddy have stopped messing with her since she woke up at that point?

Answer: She was not awake. People scream, get out of bed and walk around, and even have conversations while sleeping.

Question: After the Warg attack, why did Theoden order to leave the dead?

DFirst1

Answer: They have an urgent need to make it to Helm's Deep. Spending time burying or moving the dead will make them prone to another attack and more deaths.

Question: Chad tries to discourage Troy from singing with the line, "If you sing in musicals, you're going to end up in my mom's refrigerator." Any clue as to what this means?

Answer: When Chad brings up Michael Crawford (the iconic Phantom in musical performances of Phantom of the Opera) he points out that Crawford's picture has never been on cereal (Wheaties) boxes like popular athletes. Chad says that his mom saw Phantom of the Opera on Broadway 27 times, and she put Crawford's picture "in" her refrigerator. So then Chad tells Troy that if he plays basketball his picture will end up on a cereal box, but if he sings in musicals his picture will only end up in his mom's (or anyone's) refrigerator. Apparently since Chad's mom was nuts about Michael Crawford, one of her "crazy diet ideas" was to put Crawford's picture in the fridge to help her stick to her diet.
