Question: After Kristoff and Sven leave the kingdom, Sven tries to prevent Kristoff from moving any further. Why? Is Sven trying to tell Kristoff about the blizzard the kingdom is in since he feels it, or is he just trying to convince him to return to Anna?

Chosen answer: Sven knows that Kristoff has feelings for Anna, so by not going any further, he is trying to convince Kristoff to return to Anna.

Question: Why does Bourne's beige pullover have holes in the upper part of the back? He was not shot wearing it but what seemed to be a swimsuit.

AnthonyA

Chosen answer: He got old clothes from the people on the boat. They were simply a little tattered.

Question: Was there a deleted scene where Cathrine and Ellen were talking while making the turkey in the kitchen and/or doing something resulting in the bird being "overdone" totally and showing up in the scene at dinner causing the turkey to literally explode in a cloud of dust when carved by Clark? It just seems there was a scene missing there!

Chosen answer: There was never a scene as described in the film, nor was there anything in any of the special features. Also, there is no mention of it in any of the commentary.

Question: Salt has been with the agency for a long time and has earned the trust of her colleagues, so when she is accused of being a spy, why would her superiors take the word of a defector over her?

Chosen answer: They have to at least investigate that kind of an accusation, and when Salt so vigorously resists arrest it basically confirms, in their minds, that she is in fact a spy.

Phixius

Question: What is the title of the lovely and haunting Indian tune played as the credits run?

Question: Who is Mr Banks in the film saving Mr Banks?

Reslbraveheart

Chosen answer: The name refers to George Banks, the father in the Mary Poppins story. P.L. Travers, the author, based the character on her own alcoholic father.

Question: In the opening scene, one of the thieves said "where's your purse?" to the bank manager before they are going to leave the bank. What's the meaning of this phrase? Also, just following that, one of the thieves looks puzzled into a room where the security guards are restrained on the ground, before he joins another thief to leave the bank in their car. Why did he look puzzled at that time? Thx.

trytototo

Chosen answer: 1) Jem wants her purse to get her ID so he can follow her and eliminate her if need be, as he has already decided to take her as a hostage. 2) This is Doug coming back into the room and noticing that Claire is missing, taking her as a hostage was not part of the plan.

Time Again And World - S2-E6

Question: How was the title of this episode written? It makes no sense; is it a play on words or something?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It is basically in reference to the fact that when they arrived, everything that was happening happened when they were leaving the last world. So it was basically time again means it is the same thing and world means similar world.

Question: Why did William cover the healthy people but did not cover the sick people?

Chosen answer: People that are in need of frequent medical attention usually end up costing their insurance providers more money than they pay them in premiums, so it's simply a matter of the person's coverage becoming a liability for the insurance company.

Serious B

Question: When Senator Keeley thinks that the Goldmans are acting weird because of Senator Jackson's death and Albert replies to him about how it's dreadful news etc., did Albert know about Jackson's death, or did he just improvise on the spot?

Heather Benton

Chosen answer: Most likely, he improvises on the spot, dodging and recovering, as he did all the way through the scene.

Michael Albert

Question: It might just be in my head, but, at the end, when Gretchen talks to Donnie's mom, it seems like they knew each other or their 'conversation' had a deeper meaning. Does it really?

Flamedeiros

Chosen answer: The characters who died in the first running of time are known as the "manipulated dead" who were required to die to fix the hole in time. So although when the hole is closed at the end and the characters didn't die because time has been altered, they can't remember anything that happened, but supposedly have some kind of recognition for each other as the events were like a dream to them.

Question: Do the King and Queen of Arendelle really have a relationship with the King and Queen of Corona? If so, then what kind? Are they relatives or merely friends/allies? If they are relatives, does that mean Anna and Elsa are cousins with Rapunzel?

Chosen answer: Nothing has been confirmed officially, I believe. However the creators were fascinated by fan theories and said that they'll leave that to the viewer's imagination.

Question: Was the double cross with the chainsaw scene a set up by F.Murray Abraham? Or was it a genuine deal and did he just suspect it may be dangerous, and sent Tony because he annoyed him?

The_Iceman

Chosen answer: While it is never really mentioned I think it is a safe bet that it was a double cross. F. Murray Abraham was seen later in the film to be an informant and killed because of it.

Question: What does Professor Snape mean when he comments about three Gryffindors (Harry, Ron, and Hermione) being "inside on a day like this"? What day does he mean, and why should Gryffindors not be inside?

Chosen answer: That usually means the weather is nice outside, so children should be playing outside rather than being inside. I don't think the fact they were Gryffindors was important, just that Snape was suspicious that they were inside on a nice day.

Sierra1

Question: Why is Bootstrap Bill the only crewman aboard the Dutchman who still looks practically human, while everyone else looks like a sea creature?

Chosen answer: It's possible he's the newest crewman, or retains more of his humanity from the memories of his son.

Meltdown - S4-E6

Question: When Kryten and Rimmer were doing the roster of their ranks, Why did Kryten skip the old woman in the black dress with the white shoulder sash between Dali Lama and Mr. Noel Coward?

Chosen answer: It's Queen Victoria, someone any Englishman would recognize, and needed no introduction.

Question: When Carter goes to pick up Lee at the airport he is parked next to the terminal. I know this movie is pre-9/11 but is it actually possible or a non-airport employee to drive so close to the runway? Even allowing for the fact Carter is a cop, it still seems strange. But I'm no expert in airport protocol so I'm not listing as a mistake as it may well be possible.

Chosen answer: The fact that Carter is a cop would help. Lee was also on a private plane, as evidenced by the fact that he was the only one to get off it. Exceptions are quite often made for private planes because of the amount of money private travelers bring in. Consul Han would also have pull to make it work.

Question: When Lance went to go get the car when they were leaving the shelter, and found Harper's black book and iPad, whose purse was that sitting on the front seat of SUV? The purse that had the black book and iPad in it? That totally confused me.

Chosen answer: It was Mia's purse.

Question: After saying that he would sell his soul for just one beer, Jack looks up and greets the barman Lloyd. Since this was Jack's first time at the hotel, how could he have known the barman's name?

Chosen answer: In The Shining, both Jack and Danny experience psychic episodes and visions. Lloyd could be a product of Jack's (crazy) imagination, or he psychically knew Lloyd's name and that he's the best bartender from Timbuktu to Portland (Maine or Oregon). Or, as referenced in another question here, "Jack's soul is forever linked to the hotel, and every once in a while, he is reborn into the world, only to return to it and instigate more killings." So Lloyd's soul may be linked to the hotel in the same way that Jack's is, and they have always known each other just as Jack has "always been the caretaker."

Question: Could Professor Snape really get away with putting Neville's toad in danger (when he feeds Neville's potion to the toad at the end of class, saying that it might poison the animal)? I know that he is already a unfriendly teacher, but it seems that there would be some sort of rule against killing an animal that belongs to a student, and parents of other students might be outraged if they heard about it.

Chosen answer: Snape would never actually poison, kill, or otherwise harm any student's pet. He was just being his usual unpleasant self to Neville and any other student not from his own school house (Slytherin). If any Hogwarts teacher actually did something like that, they would be likely be dismissed.
