Question: After reading what really happened, I am still not understanding why they killed her husband. Did he know something that he should not have known? I do understand the need for his coffin to hide the bombs...now why did they need to take her daughter as a 'hostage' for the sake of the $50 million dollars?
Question: When Cedric makes the $10,000 bet, shouldn't he still have won the money even though Zeke moved the chips since not only was he not the person who placed the bet, but he also moved them after the host of the table surely called out no more bets?
Question: The part where Hank, Bessie, Lee and Charlie were in the living room and Hank gets a chip, why did Lee asked him to put back the chip because she said that "Bessie hasn't offered him the chip yet and he has to wait to be asked" and when Bessie offered him the chip and Hank refuses, why did Lee forced him to get one? I'm so confused.
Question: OK, so we're all familiar with the whole 'gate priority system, which was ignored by the producers so they could give Earth a second Stargate for some epic foreshadowing of the episodes Nemesis and Redemption Pt. 2. So here goes. Why, when you take that gate priority into consideration, was the SGC able to gate to the Alpha site to start evacuating the "best and brightest" when the 'gate Apophis brought to Earth, presumably to block any outgoing wormholes, had a DHD hooked up? I get that it was necessary to give Daniel and the scum-sucking, overdressed, boom-box-voice, snake-in-the-head, seventh-on our-increasingly-long-list-of-dead-bad-guys (as of Threshold) a way off the Ha'tak before it exploded, but its functionality should have said "NO!" to the SGC's attempts to gate out.
Question: When we first see Mrs Bing on TV, Jay Leno mentions that she recently got arrested and asks how it came about. Her response is "occasionally, after being intimate with a man, I just get a craving for Kung Pao chicken" This gets a lot of cheers and laughter from the audience and Chandler shouts "that's too much information!" at the TV. What was happening here? Why does what Mrs Bing said get so much of a reaction from everyone and not answer the question she was asked? Am I missing something?strikeand
Question: Why did Urbani go to the trouble of framing Paganini of having intercourse with underage Charlotte? Rather than just let it happen and Paganini face the consequences anyways the same, he set it so he accidentally slept with a different girl and framed him for Charlotte which caused him and Charlotte to never get together. His career was going to have the same road with or without her, so why did he make it so Paganini suffered the same consequences of sleeping with Charlotte, but set it so Charlotte thought he was cheating and left him? I don't understand Urbani's motivations here since he pledged himself to serve Paganini, despite that Urbani is in fact the Devil or a demon.Quantom X
Question: Was Kreiger going to kill Ethan Hunt above the vault immediately after grabbing the disk from Ethan's mouth? Earlier when Ethan says, "Zero body count," Kreiger responds "We'll see," insinuating maybe he's still planning to kill somebody. As soon as Ethan's to the top, Kreiger grabs the disk, a quick, "Merci" (as if saying thanks, now goodbye), and the knife is already out, but luckily dropped. They are both so freaked out at such a near miss, Ethan doesn't even notice Kreiger was going to kill him. Did this cross anybody else's mind? Why else was the knife out to be dropped?
