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?

jvoz

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.

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

Chosen answer: Because the Creeper only went after those with body parts it liked.

Question: What is the song that plays when Sgt. Gerry Boyle is approaching his mother near the start of the film?

Question: Why does Bond not use his left arm playing poker at The Ocean Club (when he wins the Aston Martin)? When Bond goes all in on a poker hand, he sweeps all of his many chips into the centre of the table in almost an awkward manner, as if his left hand is holding something under the table.

Inkerbelle

Chosen answer: Because he is right handed. Therefore he would naturally use his right hand to sweep chips across the table. He just has his posture so his left hand is in his lap - the pose seems quite natural. There wouldn't be anything I can think of he would be holding under the table.

Question: I get the point about Gretkov finding out from Abbott that Bourne is still alive, before Abbott kills himself, but how did Gretkov/Kirill know that Bourne went to Russia straight after?

Chosen answer: Landy told an associate to let the Russian government know Bourne was on his way to them. The police show up to canvas the train station just after Bourne has left in a cab. Kirill is a secret service officer and would know this as well.

Question: As Mr. Candie and the others first arrive at Candyland, Stephen is writing a check and signs it as Calvin Candie then rolls something over it, what was that?

Chosen answer: It was to dry the ink on the check.

Question: Why does the demon kill the salvage crew before the boat is even fixed, and why couldn't he fix the boat himself if he already has the ability to move objects?

Chosen answer: Not fixing the boat drew the salvage crew to the boat, where the demon could fill his soul-quota far away from any aid his victims may have sought.

Swords into Ploughshares - S2-E7

Question: When the girls and Rosemary's mother go to the mortuary to see who was impersonating Rosemary, Rosemary's mother says just before they see the body, "It's just a waste of time me going home, really." What does she mean?

kh1616

Chosen answer: Maybe she thinks she's so old that she'll be back in the mortuary soon, so why go home?

kh1616

Question: When Selina/Catwoman has Schreck cornered, she says that him, the Penguin and Batman killed her leaving her with only six lives left. I understand that Schreck "killed" her by pushing her out a window and that the Penguin "killed" her when she fell through a greenhouse, but how could Batman have killed her? She landed safely in a truck filled with kitty litter after she got knocked off the roof, so that can't count.

Chosen answer: Apparently it did. Kitty litter isn't exactly soft.
