Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: When Riker and his father are doing anbo-jyutsu, what do the Japanese characters on the armor and around the ring say or mean? I read what the spoken Japanese lines meant (or at least why they attempted to say, I understand their pronunciation was bad), but couldn't find the writing.
Question: Were people able to "lock" the Holodeck doors so that others couldn't just walk in on them? I don't recall an episode where the doors were locked that wasn't because of some malfunction. It seems like Lieutenant Barclay, for example, would either lock the doors during his "fantasies" or have some "fail-safe" that shuts the program off when being walked in on. Otherwise, it's just a really dumb thing to do (for him or anyone playing out a fantasy) knowing they could easily be caught.
Question: How did Duds die?
Question: Why does Masters torch some of his paintings? Is it a psychological compulsion? Do they not meet his standards?
Question: How come Julia wasn't listed on the flight manifest?
Question: When Frasier is in Donny's office, Donny says that he will sue Daphne for "breach of contract." How is this possible unless he and Daphne, at some point, created a verbal or written contract, in which Daphne specifically promised to marry him? Is accepting a marriage proposal the same as creating a verbal contract?
Question: Three questions: One, why does the Trident glow when Morgana is holding it? It never glows when Triton holds it, unless he's using it; Two, aren't Cloak and Dagger Stingrays? I'm asking because not only were they holding onto Eric's ankles but also, Sebastian was holding them after Eric was free. Wouldn't he be stung or something?; Three, why would Morgana make a "palace" out of ice? Could her tentacles hold on? I just think she would be slipping a lot.
Question: When the Marine in the Dodge Ram pickup interrupts the armoured car robbery, he is wearing civilian clothes, not a uniform. How do they know he is a Marine?
Question: The breaking of the Trident cures all curses. So why is Davy Jones still cursed in the end credits?
Question: In one of the final game scenes, one of the Notre Dame players has the name Favreau on the back of his jersey. Since no player on that team was named Favreau, was this done for John Favreau?
Question: What song are Melio and Barf playing at the piano museum?
Question: Did I imagine it, or does Letty appear with a beard but no moustache at one point in the movie?
Question: How did Van Pelt control animals without "Jaguar's Eye"?
