Question: In the scene in Florence with the two fighting Italians, does one of them die? In one shot he is still moving his jaw, in another shot he seems rather motionless.

Answer: It's unknown if he survived or not, nor is it important to the film's plot. The scene is about how witnessing a violent act affects Lucy. The entire trip to Italy has a powerful effect on her personality, opening her to new emotions and sensations that she's never experienced before, having lived a rather pleasant though constricted and conventional life in England.

Question: Towards the end, after the Police Lieutenant says that they should wait and hear what Herr Sesemann has to say about the Grandfather, Heidi runs to the Grandfather and Fraulein Rottenmeier is last seen standing looking worried. What happened to her? Did she go to jail?

Answer: It's obvious that she loses her position as the governess after what she's done, but I doubt she does any hard time. In the book, Fraulein Rottenmeier has no real malice towards Heidi, and in the 1968 TV movie, she even becomes a love interest with Herr Sesemann at the end.

Question: When the pregnant woman has alien eggs put in, do I have it right that she (the character) was expecting quads, and had five eggs put in her? I thought that when they burst out, there were five, but I might be in error.

Answer: Whilst I have no definitive answer for you, it is my belief that the woman was only expecting one baby. The alien just implanted as many embryos as it possibly could inside the woman.

Question: How long did it take for Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey to get to the kingdom of Far Far Away?

Answer: Roughly 2000 "are we there yet?" questions away. Which to Fiona and Shrek must have felt like 10,000 years. But seriously, they come across signs for "away" and "far away" adding up to 900 miles distance, so I'd say "far far away" is about 3000 miles from the swamp. By carriage that's about 21 days if they keep going day and night and at the same, slow pace (6 miles per hour?) they were going.

The curious thing though is where they would get food while traveling to far far away.

The 21 days I said for calculation purposes, obviously they had stops to eat and drink (pee).

Like You Like an Arsonist - S3-E1

Question: I'm confused. Haley returns at the end of season 2 - aka the beginning of summer. But in season 3 episode 1 present day (3 months later) she is looking for a place to stay and greeting her friends as if she just got there. Where the heck did she go after Nathan left for High Flyers?

Question: When Bernie kisses the random reporter near the end of the movie, does anyone know if that was a scripted moment? She looks genuinely surprised.

Answer: According to this site, it was planned. http://nldslab.soe.ucsc.edu/charactercreator/film_corpus/film_2012xxxx/imsdb.com/Notting-Hill.html They both smile - suddenly the press gets what's going on - music - noise - they all turn and flash, flash, flash photos of William. Max and Bella kiss. Bernie kisses a total stranger. Spike finally makes it - he's bright red from running.

Show generally

Question: I'm looking for a quote by Bojack Horseman about a philosopher justifying violence. I think it was season 3, and it might have been about Kant, but I can't seem to find it.

Question: Why did Paul and the other guards show concern for Percy after Wild Bill caused Percy to piss his pants?

Answer: They may not like him but they still want to make sure he's ok.

Greg Dwyer

Exactly. Plus having a guard killed by an inmate on their watch would reflect poorly on them, to say the least. And Percy had political connections as well.

Because they are caring human beings, and feel some emotion towards someone in trouble, unlike Percy himself.

Question: What does Milo Perrier mouth to Jessica Marbles as Benson-mum spoons out the "soup" during dinner? I can't read their lips.

unkajes Premium member

Answer: According to the script, she is mouthing "I think he's lying."

Answer: "I think he's lying."

Answer: No, he mouths "I think he's blind." It's right after the scene where he tests that. The Marbles character responds "who is?"

Question: I'm still a bit confused on the tripods' actual height. I can't find it anywhere and I just wanted to make sure how tall the tripods are. Preferably in meters but any measurement is fine.

Answer: They're reported to be about 100 feet tall.

They definitely seemed a lot taller than 100ft in the movies though that's for sure. I would have guessed maybe a few hundred feet.

Answer: In this film, their height is about 150 feet.

Trust No 1 - S9-E6

Question: After blowing up the car, when the NSA guy answers Scully's question, "How the hell do you know my size?" he says, "I know the name of your college boyfriend, your true hair colour, your ATM PIN number." This strongly suggests that red is not her true colour. Therefore, my question is: What is the true colour of Scully's hair?

Chop Luftmysza

Answer: He was being facetious. He doesn't specifically know that information, he was merely giving examples of the types of information he has access to.

Answer: Actress Gillian Anderson's natural hair color is strawberry blonde, which she dyed fiery red. (Although in the revival of the show she wears a wig).

Question: What happened to all the dogs the Newtons rescued from the end of the first film? None of them appear in this sequel except for one dog, Sparky, in two scenes, but it looks like he doesn't live with them anymore.

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: This takes place some time after the first movie so the dogs from the first movie were most likely adopted or reunited with their proper owners.

Answer: They did recognize each other (at one point he goes to her house without asking her address). After the divorce, Howard said that he wished they were strangers again. They literally behaved as if they never met each other before (even though Madeline is gently pushing to move past being strangers - for example, by guessing he's divorced).

Question: When Smith kills Jack he says, "Have you got a validation, boy-o?", to which of course, Jack says, "Rollo Tomasi." But why would Smith think Jack would expose his source, especially if he is about to die?

Answer: Smith actually says, "Have you a valediction," i.e., any last words. He's not asking Jack to name his source, he's just asking, in a slightly mocking way, if Jack wants to say anything else before he dies.

Question: Why did falling from a cliff result in the player losing a life, but falling 1,000 feet to the ground upon respawning did not?

quinnnmallory

Answer: It's common in video games that during a respawn a character has a brief period of invulnerability to prevent cheap deaths.

BaconIsMyBFF

Answer: The fall is probably shorter.

Answer: Reese is able to feel vibrations from his dad's voice, which can be very soothing.

Answer: Many hearing-impaired people are also lip readers.

Answer: She has Polio. Taken from Wikipedia: Poliomyelitis, often called polio or infantile paralysis, is an infectious disease caused by the poliovirus. In about 0.5 percent of cases there is muscle weakness resulting in an inability to move. This can occur over a few hours to a few days. The weakness most often involves the legs but may less commonly involve the muscles of the head, neck and diaphragm. Many but not all people fully recover.

Question: How did Claude kill Dr. Pigot? When Serafine is attempting to revive him, he doesn't seem to have a mark on him.

Answer: Perhaps the good doc died of a heart attack? Brought on from the horror / terror of being chased and then attacked by a monster? Or some other similar type of affliction. Embolism? Aneurysm?

Alan Keddie

Season 1 generally

Question: Why don't the heroes use at least 2018-era protective gear to keep from getting shot or stabbed?

Answer: Since the person had obviously been let in just to kill Cadbury, the guards would have been paid off to look the other way.
