Question: Is there a duplicate line that is spoken by Hiccup or Astrid in How to Train Your Dragon 2 that is also said in the movie Frozen?

Chosen answer: No.

Corazon - S6-E12

Question: In the scene near the beginning, Morgan and Hotchner are on video call with Garcia, she is away from the screen, Morgan calls for her and she comes running to the screen saying she is on. They ask her to research something and she replies like usual and Hotchner thanks her but I think instead of saying "Garcia" I think he called her "Kristin." Can anyone confirm?

Pa Tshia Vang

Chosen answer: I just double-checked, he does say Garcia.

Question: This bugged me for years, when Billy said there is something in the trees to Dutch and in the next shot it shows the trees, is the Predator there, as in visible onscreen?

ezorro

Chosen answer: Yes. The predator can be seen not in the immediate shot after, but the one a few seconds later as they are seen walking away.

XIII

Question: What does Elsa eat in the mountains? Or does she not need to eat?

Lily Harrison

Chosen answer: Elsa still needs to eat. However, she has only been in the mountains for a day. One can go three weeks without any food, Elsa would eventually have to leave the mountain to find some food.

Casual Person

Question: Does anyone know how they created the slime in the film?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: For scenes like when Bill Murray is covered with it and it gets in his mouth, it's gelatin mixed with food coloring. For other scenes it's various plastics.

Question: Why was Voldemort at a train station in one of Harry's visions? I am wondering why he would let himself be seen by several people. The news that he has returned would get around to Cornelius Fudge.

Chosen answer: Voldemort wasn't actually at the train station. Harry is just having a mental vision of him. This only happened in the movie, and it was to show the growing mental connection Harry shares with Voldemort.

Question: How could Sam narrate parts of the stories if he never returned home ?

Chosen answer: Likely, Sam's narrations are just his own internal monologue and not reports back to the project or anything.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: In Mr Sir's office when he gives a drink to the guard, is it Coca-Cola because it looks like it. If not, can someone tell me what it is?

Macca

Chosen answer: It appears to be in fact a Coca-Cola bottle, it has been turned in an attempt to not show the logo.

LukeS

Question: Who is the lad in the Wreck Room that almost fights Stanley? His name is not mentioned at all.

Macca

Chosen answer: In the book, his name isn't mentioned either. Also in the book, Stanley mistakes the man for Caveman when they say, "Nobody messes with the Caveman", because this was the first time Stanley had heard the nickname.

Brad

Question: As pointed out in another question, most Muggles would be surprised to find out about the wizarding world. Surely some of them would think that their child's Hogwarts letter was a joke or something. So do all Muggles with Muggle-born magic children know where the children are going?

Chosen answer: All Muggle parents whose offspring attend Hogwarts know where their children are going and that it is a school of magic. Initially they may think the letter their child receives is a joke, but they are also visited by representatives of the school who can demonstrate that magic is real. Most children have already displayed some type of magical ability, so the parents are not completely surprised. Muggle parents are sworn to keep the wizard world secret.

Question: What is the name of the statue in Thomas Crown's foyer in his home?

Jeanne Hanson

The Deal - S2-E9

Question: 2 questions: First, Jerry and Elaine keep referencing things such as "This", "That", and later on, "And the other." What exactly do these phrases mean? Respectively, is it friendship, sex, and a romantic relationship? Secondly, the ending suggests that Jerry and Elaine have gotten past their differences and finally become a couple again. How does that jive with the rest of the series, where they go back to being just friends? Is there any reference to another breakup between the two?

Chosen answer: "This" refers to being friends. "That" refers to sex (Jerry points towards the bedroom). "The other" refers to having all of it, aka a relationship. As far as the second question, both Jerry and Elaine mention in later episodes that they used to date, but are just friends. They never officially broke up on screen.

Question: Do some Hogwarts students stay at the school during the summer break? I ask because in the flashback scene, Tom Riddle tells Dumbledore that he will have nowhere to go if the school closes. But he is sixteen, so where has he gone during the summer breaks of his previous school years?

Chosen answer: Students cannot stay at the school during the summer. In the book, during the summer break, Tom always went back to the same orphanage that he grew up in.

Question: Does anyone know where the idea for the Arab flag in the movie came from? Seems to me it resembles the Louisiana flag (the bird with the babies) except with no writing. Did anyone else notice this?

Show generally

Question: My understanding is Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, Howard, and even Amy and Kripke work for a university; but none of them seem to be teachers. And if they are, they never have office hours, or are seen grading homework, and Sheldon seems inept at teaching. Do universities really hire that many people who simply do research with no actual work requirements? Or what's going on? (I understand not filming boring office hours or grading, etc. But they never even allude to it, their work never interferes with random daily events, and I imagine college teachers/professors would stay extremely more busy.

Bishop73

Chosen answer: The boys work for Caltech, a research university mainly dedicated to science and technology. It's never been stated where Amy works, except that she has her own lab. But remember, her lab is fully funded by the Saudi prince that she is pseudo-engaged to. Any business or university would hire her for that reason.

Question: At the bonfire scene after Sandy stormed off, Kenickie says "I wonder if she carries silver bullets." What did he mean by that?

aniyaaaaa

Chosen answer: This is a reference to a popular fictional masked cowboy hero, the Lone Ranger. The Lone Ranger stood for truth, justice, and conducts himself by a strict moral code. When the Lone Ranger would solve a crime or capture a villain he never stopped to explain who he was but he always left behind a silver bullet as his trademark. Even his horse was named "Silver". When Sandy calls Danny a fake and a phony, Kenickie says "I wonder if she carries silver bullets" to mock her for her righteous outburst.

Question: In the bonfire scene when the girls are taking Sandy over to meet Danny, and after Danny acts differently toward Sandy in front of his friends, why did Rizzo do all of that? Obviously she did it because she knew how Danny would be in front his friends but it seems like there was something else. Did they ever date in the past?

aniyaaaaa

Chosen answer: Remember that Rizzo didn't like Sandy at all. Her clean-cut personality was the opposite of Rizzo's and she hated that. So chances are, she just wanted to humiliate her. Also she didn't like Danny either, so this was like killing two birds with one stone for her. It's possible that she might have dated Danny previously - Jan says to Rizzo that Danny is looking good this year and Rizz says "that is ancient history."

Gavin Jackson

Question: In the scene when Moriarty is doing a book signing, his aide sits and hands him a piece of paper with what looks like some kind of grouped numbers together. What is this and does it get referenced later in the film?

Brad Barding

Chosen answer: That's the key code for his fortune concealed in his library. The one Mrs Watson uses to relay to Inspector Lestrade. Like the book reference numbers in a public library.

Question: Beckett commands Davy Jones to kill the Kraken, and then when we see it, it doesn't appear to be missing any body parts. There's also nothing to suggest frenetic cannon shots. How did Jones kill the Kraken?

Chosen answer: Jones killed the Kraken by beaching it. It being an aquatic animal, it suffocated outside of water. I assume it was due to his magical control over it that enabled it.

Question: Did I miss something somewhere? What was so special about the baby that its birth would change everything?

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: It is implied that this baby is destined to grow into a leader, a person of power, authority, and influence in the world and will be a champion for peace and the unity of all mankind.
