Question: How did Tim's dad know about the incident with the black guy and about the fight with Schwartz?

Chosen answer: He likely heard about it around town. Anti-semitism was fairly common at the time so word of someone being beaten in a fight by a Jew would travel fast.

Question: In the scene where they cross the bridge with the train, and Allison French is being held by those two guys with a rope around her neck, so that if they would shoot the guys, the horse would run off and break her neck, suffocate her or whatever... They were with 4 against 2, so why didn't one of 'em just shoot that horse?

Chosen answer: There's no explanation. It could be that no one thought of this. Also, even if they shot the horse, the girl could still be injured or killed. If the horse was only wounded, it could have bolted, reared up, or fallen and then rolled on top of the girl. There's many different scenarios that could have played out.

Question: Where is Kate living when she finds the book under the floor board? If it not the Lake House how did it get there?

Chosen answer: In her apartment in Chicago. Because Alex knew her address, he hid it in the floorboard for her to eventually find. He knew how important the book was to her. He didn't want to send it to her in the mail, as she originally requested.

Question: When Dr. Kogan is meeting with Marcus, she gets Marcus to sign over his body for research following his death. Later in the film, Marcus discovers that he's been turned into a cyborg. Why did she do this to him and what did she hope to accomplish from it?

Chosen answer: She worked for Cyberdyne. She did it for whatever reason Cyberdyne wanted her to. They made Cyborgs.

XIII

Answer: Marcus was a prototype. It was to be the first to actually retain your human self within a machine, in other words your soul.

Question: In the beginning, there is a watchman that announces "Another minute closer to Christmas!" as each minute ticks off a countdown clock. Assuming that each panel (days, hours minutes) is on a revolving wheel of some sort, how can the three wheels work correctly in such close proximity to each other? Granted, only the minutes part moves for the sake of the story, but it still begs the question.

Movie Nut

Answer: By machine.

Oh, No, You Di-In't (2) - S6-E24

Question: Karen marries Lyle, and Harry Connick Jr. tells Will he cheated on Grace. I'd like to know what kind of necklace was Karen wearing, that dropped down with the pendant hanging on it?

Chosen answer: My best guess from examining the necklace in pictures would be that it is a silver chain accented with small diamonds placed at equidistant intervals. The pendant looks to be a shell cameo, but it's hard to make out from a distance. The costume designer for the episode is listed as Lori Eskowitz-Carter. She does have a Facebook page. In service to your question, I sent her a message asking about the necklace, and will add an update to this post if and when I receive an answer. You might get a faster response by paying Facebook $1.00, which will get the message directly to her in-box. She may not see my question unless she looks for it.

Question: On Endor when the rebels get caught, there is one rebel dressed as a speeder bike rider with no helmet. What is with that?

Chosen answer: The rebel was left outside to guard from Imperial attacks, he couldn't have just stood out there in his rebel forest gear.

TJ Brandt

Question: In the final shot, we see Jill's head move a little. Was that suppose to let the viewers know that she's alive or was it just a mistake?

Chosen answer: I personally submitted this as a revealing mistake. There is no official statement from Wes Craven or anyone else involved in the making of the movie about it being deliberate. So in my eyes, it's a mistake.

THGhost

Question: Any particular reason why they chose not to have the Krites grow huge in the sequels?

Question: Is any of the sub-plot with Timo Cruz and his friend (relative?) getting shot true?

Question: What song is playing when Jack walks into the Grand Staircase area around 54 and a half minutes into the movie?

Chosen answer: "The Blue Danube Waltz" by Johann Strauss II.

Question: What is the logical reason behind King Candy's decision to delete Vanellope's code? What does he gain from it? From what I understand, he didn't think she'd become a glitch, but what exactly did he have against her and why delete her instead of any other racer?

Chosen answer: As shown later on, Candy was revealed to be Turbo. A racer whose racing game was ruined by another racing game. His jealousy drove him to ruining both his game and the other game. Turbo then wanted to live in a racing game, so chose Sugar Rush. Vanellope was revealed in the end to be the leader of Sugar Rush and King Candy tried to delete her code and re-write his code so he could be leader and take part in all the races. That's why he didn't delete any other racer's code - because getting Vanellope's code deleted would have made him the leader. Candy had nothing against Vanellope, he just wanted to be leader by any means possible.

A Benihana Christmas - S3-E10

Question: Is there a specific reason that the two girls from the restaurant are played by different actors when they get to the office? I couldn't imagine it has anything to do with the idea of Asian people looking similar out-of-universe, so I know there must be something else.

Knever

Chosen answer: Why couldn't that be the reason? As you can see, throughout the rest of the episode, one of the running jokes is that Michael can't figure out which girl is which anyway. That's not the writers saying that all Asians look alike. They're saying that they simply look alike to Michael. Because for all his profession that he is open-minded and forward-thinking, it's clear throughout the run of the show that he's actually not quite as forward-thinking as he thinks he is.

Question: When Engywook explains the Magic Mirror Gate to Falkor, he says that the mirror shows a person their true nature. Brave men are cowards. Kind men are cruel. When Atreyu looks into the Magic Mirror Gate, why does he see Bastion?

Answer: Atreau is the main character of the book (like Bastion is to us watching the movie) this makes them the same, the main protagonist or the "story" It's a 4th wall break inside a 4th wall break. The Empress even tells him "he is sharing all your adventures, others are sharing his."

Chosen answer: Atreyu, as the main character in this story, is the reader's avatar in Fantasia. Atreyu sees Bastion in the mirror because, so long as Bastion is reading the book, he and Atreyu are one and the same.

Question: Why were different actors used for the voices of Judy and Elroy instead of the original actors?

Chosen answer: Daws Butler, the original voice actor for Elroy, died in 1988. Janet Waldo did record a voice track for the feature but was replaced by Tiffany to attract a new audience off her popularity.

MasterOfAll

Question: Why did the Creeper go after only certain students instead of all of them?
