Question: How did the Phantom always know where Christine was?

Chosen answer: The Phantom followed Christine almost constantly, always staying hidden in the shadows, nooks and crannies so as to not be detected. She was his obsession. Stealth was his expertise.

Question: Who did Frank execute in the beginning of the film? Was it the shop owner or just someone we don't know?

Chosen answer: Someone we don't know.

Answer: It was Leonardo's father and girlfriend killed out by the airport.

Italian mob boss and wife?

New this month Answer: They were "Guineas from the North End" who tried to tell Frank what to do. (Guinea being a racial slur for Italian-Americans). It's most likely just two unknown people because they are credited in the film as "Executed Woman" and "Executed Man."

Question: When Simon and Joe are ordered by the police chief to do either community service at Reverend Russell's retreat or face prison, they take the community service option. But eventually, Reverend Russell orders Simon not to come on the retreat. So, why wasn't Simon arrested?

Chosen answer: I think they let Simon go because he was sick at the time.

Question: When Mancuso is sending morse code to Ramius, why does Ramius need to use a sonar ping to communicate back (possibly raising the suspicions of his crew) instead of discreetly flashing his periscope light back?

Chosen answer: It's faster than clicking out a response in morse code, and the captain suddenly flipping the periscope light on and off repeatedly would be just as suspicious to the bridge crew, so why not save time?

Question: Who played Cynthia? Nowhere in the film credits or on-line is the character or the actress listed.

Question: What has happened by the time the police footage is shown? After Erin escaped and killed the "Sheriff", police footage of the area is then shown (at the beginning as well), such as the police collecting evidence and filming a walk-through, as if the house has been abandoned for years, but it's only a day after. What has happened to the rest of the Hewitt family (Luda May, Monty, Tea Lady etc.), with the exception of Leatherface who escaped? How did the police only find out about the Hewitts then?

Chosen answer: Erin must have led the police back to the house and then the Hewitt's were taken away so that way evidence could be collected. They must have thought that Leatherface had escaped and was no longer in the house.

Question: Why is the bill that Cowan grabs crumpled up when all the others are flat?

Question: What was Chucky and Tiffany's childhood like? Because I read that Chucky's back story was that his father was an alcoholic and occasionally beat and raped his mother and would often beat Chucky up, did Tiff have a good childhood?

Answer: The films don't delve into either Chucky or Tiffany's backstory, and the films themselves are the only official canon. So until it is properly addressed in the movies, it's basically up to your imagination.

Question: When Chucky killed Barb onwards, where was Alice? Was she in the house, or did she runaway to her gran's at the end?

Chosen answer: It is revealed when Ian checks the webcam that Chucky hid Alice in the closet. She was most likely there the whole third act.

Answer: When Ian is checking the nanny cam, it is reveals that Alice is playing Hide-And-Seek with Chucky, instead of sleep. Chucky hid Alice in a closet, to keep her is not on his way while he is murdering the family.

Question: I still don't fully understand why W.C.K.D would entrap the kids in the maze. Is it because they were testing them for survival or something? And why was the girl the 'last one ever'?

Dra9onBorn117

Chosen answer: Because the film is based on the book series, the exact purpose of why the boys were kept in the maze has not been fully explained yet other than it is an experiment. There has been a pandemic viral outbreak that the boys appeared to have somehow survived and now are being tested. Why the girl was the "last one" has also not been explained, though she and Thomas are somehow connected to those who are responsible for running the experiment. At the end, the woman scientist says that the experiment has been a success and Phase 2 is about to begin, so more answers will be revealed in the second film. To avoid giving away the entire plot, I suggest reading the book series synopsis on Wikipedia.

Question: When Simms tells the 3 thugs they are dead, he screams at them "This ain't no funeral home. It ain't the terra dome neither." What is the terra dome? When I look it up online I only find a mention of an underground home, but I don't see what that has to do with Satan and Hell.

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: The word he says is "terror dome". He is just referencing a Public Enemy song, "Welcome to the Terrordome".

Question: On Fred's first day of his new promotion, he says "I'm only one man, Barney." To which Barney responds."Not from the back" and they both laugh. Could someone please explain this gag to me. I have tried for years to understand it, with no luck.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: He means Fred is fat. That from behind, he looks big enough to be two or more people.

Question: Where is Sam and why is he not in this movie?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: It's not explained where he is. The most likely assumption is that he is probably married to Carly living somewhere. He is not in the movie because it is mainly the choice of the writers to not have him in the movie.

The Ringer - S1-E1

Question: What exactly is the name Link calls the skeleton enemies? It sounds like Stopo or Stapho or something.

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Their official name is Stalfos.

Show generally

Question: Although the seasons have been split over 6-7 years real time, how much time passed from first episode to last?

The_Iceman Premium member

Chosen answer: Roughly 5 years. Abel is suppose to be 5 in season 7 and was born during the pilot. Most season cover just a few months with the the next season picking up where they left off, for example; season 1 covers 68 days and at the start of season 2, three weeks has past and it covers no more than 2 months, then season 3 picks up one day later. The big gap happens during the break between season 3 and 4. Season 4 starts 14 months later (when they finish their prison sentence). In season 7, each episode covers one day.

Question: In the scene where Jessica Rabbit performs, when she's interacting with different objects in the room, such as the cloth napkin on Mr. Acme's table (to polish his bald head) and Eddie Valliant's tie and coat, how did they accomplish that if Jessica was drawn on the film later (so I've been led to believe is the process with cartoon/reality movies). Did they actually have a stand-in/actress that they drew over?

Chosen answer: According to the Disney Wiki (http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Who_Framed_Roger_Rabbit) : "During production, one of the biggest challenges faced by the makers of the film was how to get the cartoon characters to realistically interact with real on-set props. This was ultimately accomplished in two different ways. Certain props (such as Baby Herman's cigar or the plates Roger smashes over his head) were moved on-set via motion control machines hooked up to operator who would move the objects in exactly the desired manner. Then, in post, the character was simply drawn 'over' the machine. The other way of doing it was by using puppeteers. This is most seen in the scene in the Ink & Paint club. The glasses held by the octopus bartender were in fact being controlled by puppeteers from above, whilst the trays carried by the penguin waiters were on sticks being controlled from below - both the wires and the sticks were simply removed in post and the cartoons added in." While Jessica's performance model is credited as Betsy Brantley, it appears she was the basis for the animation, rather than actually being present on-set.
