Question: In 1955 when Doc and Marty are in the outdoor cinema and Marty is accelerating to 88mph to jump back in time to 1885, doc shouts something to him in celebration as Marty Drives past him, he also fires his gun in the air... Do you know what he shouts? The subtitles just say "shouts something in Spanish" but id love to know what he said and what it means?TDFarthing
Question: After Emery has his fingers cut off and everyone is trapped in the room, Nick informs everyone that Kevin Bollinger hung himself in the Mirror Library after letting Emery's mother into the house. This would make him a ghost obviously, but this creates a problem. How has he been able to appear as a ghost for so long if he must have been alive to let Emery's mother into the house? Did I miss something?Rosie John
Question: I barely remember an episode where a personal video in question was to be viewed in the judge's chambers. Of course Dan wanted to be in on the viewing. Before Harry left the bench his court clerk or the defense made a comment (do not know which clerk or defense) regarding the viewing of the tape. Harry answered something to the effect that they were going to review the tape for the four (or five) points of interest of a woman's anatomy. She stands there while the men all follow Harry out of the court room. The person (clerk or defense) silently and slowly counted on her fingers and then looks up and says, "Oh my God." Does anyone know which episode this was?TimBo266
Question: Why did Dumbledore give Snape the dual teacher/spy position after James and Lily were murdered? Voldemort was presumed to be defeated by baby Harry, so there was no reason for Dumbledore to need a spy.
Question: Forgive me if this question sounds stupid - I was eight years old when the movie came out, and I didn't use a phone a lot. Why is Casey not surprised that the caller was able to dial her the second time? From my experience, wrong numbers are often caused by people accidentally dialing wrong. It would be suspicious to me if a person could "accidentally" punch in the same wrong number twice. But she simply asks why he did it, then accepts his apology.
Question: Is there a point for Danny's singing voice to keep changing throughout the movie? In Summer Nights and Oh, Sandy, he sounded normal but in Greased Lightnin' and the song he sang while dancing with Sandy, (when she asked if he wanted to sing professionally), his voice is deeper. Just out of curiosity.
Question: So it's my understanding that when Jack made the deal with Beckett, Jack agreed to bring out the Pirates, which he did, and Beckett was to satisfy Jack's debt to Jones. But at the end I don't understand why Beckett let Jack and Will sink his ship. This is because first off why would he even stick to the deal at that point, why didn't he betray Jack? Also did the deal even still exist, because Jones died and Will became captain, thus Jack could no longer be in debt to Jones. So simply, why did Beckett let his ship (along with his life) be destroyed?
Question: How does Mikael know where Lisbeth's father and half-brother live? Lisbeth found the post office box address from the rental car rego plates, and then staked it out, for quite a while, and when a young man opened it and got the mail out, she followed him straight to her father. Mikael did none of that, so how was he able to arrive like a knight in shiny armour at the exact time to save Lisbeth's life?kh1616
Question: When Miriam gives Mikael Lisbeth's keys - Lisbeth dropped her keys while she was visiting Miriam in the hospital - Mikael looks at them and says, "It looks like a post box key." Can someone please explain how Mikael is able to find the right post box and the right number (none of these are printed on the key), so then he can go to her place?kh1616
Question: I just watched this movie for the first time and I have three questions that are really confusing me. When Alice is in the cabin and that dead girl comes through the window, (I forgot her name), how did that girl die? All I saw was blood and ropes on her so I was wondering what happened. When Mrs. Voorhees is with Alice just before she tries to kill her, we see her repeat "Kill her mommy. Kill her", so I was wondering if Jason was possessing her or not? When Jason, as a kid, comes through the water and grabs Alice in her dream, he's disfigured and burnt. How could that be if all he did was drown? If anybody can explain all my questions with great details, I would really appreciate it.
Question: Can someone explain what it means that Jacob imprinted on Renesmee? I thought imprinting meant you want to be with that person (like love and marry them). But now that Jacob has imprinted on Renesmee, I think I'm wrong.
