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.

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.

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

Answer: "I think he's lying."

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.

Which is about 30.5 meters.

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.

I think so too.

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).

The question does not concern Gillian Anderson's true hair colour-it concerns Agent Dana Scully's true hair colour.

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.

[email protected]

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.

Question: How did Howard and Madeline not recognise each other?

raph

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.

Question: What happened to Janice's leg?

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?

Season 1 generally

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

Question: Why didn't the prison guards come to help after Cadbury hollered for them when being attacked by an Assassin?

[email protected]

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.

Question: Genie tells Aladdin he cannot kill, or make anyone fall in love, or bring people back from the dead. He also tells Aladdin he cannot wish for more wishes. Shouldn't that make four rules not three?

Answer: The three rules refer to what he could wish for, not how many. It's like a coupon that tells you both what it's good for and limit one per customer. The rules about distinct things that don't affect each other.

Brian Katcher

Answer: The Genie never actually says that he has "3 rules", he just numbers the three you mentioned as he is explaining them. He told Aladdin about the "no more wishes" rule before he sang "Never Had a Friend Like Me." He doesn't include "no more wishes" in his list of rules because Aladdin already knew about it.

BaconIsMyBFF

Yes of course it's a rule. What difference does it make?

lionhead

I meant yes it would make four rules.

He says there are a few "provisors", a few "quid pro quo's" (which doesn't make any sense) to the 3 wishes he can do. That's what he can't do because he is limited into doing them. However, the not getting more than 3 wishes is something the Genie himself won't do for him. The 3 limitations he sums up are about the wishes itself, the fact he can do only 3 is a separate rule the Genie himself won't do. So the wishes have only 3 official rules because the Genie can't do anything about them, and 1 particular wish the Genie simply won't grant.

lionhead

Answer: There is a difference between what he cannot do and won't do.

You're going to going to need to be more specific.
