Question: Was the car chase that was shown in Top Gear real for the movie, or was it just for that episode of the show?

Chosen answer: Yes it was actually used in the film.

Question: When Kristoff takes Anna into the Valley of the Living Rocks, seeing that Anna is freezing, he suggests she warms herself up by one of the holes where steam is coming out. If the valley is heated by the steam, why doesn't Olaf feel the heat or melt?

Chosen answer: Olaf doesn't sit by the steam vent as he does later by the fire with Anna, so who's to say that it is warm everywhere? It could be very localised.

Question: How much did Mini Cooper give to the Italian Job for the publicity in the movie? The movie casts a very good light on the car.

Chosen answer: While the exact amount of money is hard to find, the MINIs used in the 2003 movie are a direct homage to the Minis used in the 1960s movie, which is the main reason they are used. MINI (the company owned by BMW, as opposed to the company which owned Mini by Austin and Morris in the 60s) was happy to have the remake use MINI as a direct link to change the perception of it from a "girly" type car, to a more sporty one.

Question: What is the name of the bar they are in at the end of the movie?

Chosen answer: Napoleon House.

Christopher - S4-E3

Question: Was it Jimmy Altieri standing in the back of the crowd during the Columbus rally scene? He was killed in season one for being an FBI informant and here they probably used him as a stand in... If so, then that is some sort of mistake, because I think, it really is him. (00:15:50)

Question: At the Vermont lodge Judy is dancing with the same male dancer that Betty dances with at the same time in New York City at a nightclub. How can that happen?

Chosen answer: The actors appear similar but they are different people. John Brascia danced with Vera Ellen in Vermont. George Chakiris danced with Rosemary Clooney in New York.

Question: Can someone tell me who the elf/actor is who stands next to Elrond in the scene were Aragorn just become king and sees Arwen? They kiss and then you'll see them clapping. I can't find it anywhere.

Allisa van der Lande

Chosen answer: This appears to be an unnamed character played by an un-credited actor. He's basically an extra who is part of Elrond's group.

Question: How did Harry send his own patronum at the lake without knowing it ?

Chosen answer: After the first time Harry saw it, as he was being attacked by the dementors, he had convinced himself that it was sent by his (dead) father, who he believed had somehow been resurrected. When he goes back in time three hours, and watches the other Harry across the lake, he realizes that it was he who cast the earlier patronus, not his father. That is when he casts it again.

Question: After Kristoff and Sven leave the kingdom, Sven tries to prevent Kristoff from moving any further. Why? Is Sven trying to tell Kristoff about the blizzard the kingdom is in since he feels it, or is he just trying to convince him to return to Anna?

Chosen answer: Sven knows that Kristoff has feelings for Anna, so by not going any further, he is trying to convince Kristoff to return to Anna.

Question: Why does Bourne's beige pullover have holes in the upper part of the back? He was not shot wearing it but what seemed to be a swimsuit.

AnthonyA

Chosen answer: He got old clothes from the people on the boat. They were simply a little tattered.

Answer: I think that may be a continuity thing due to a script revision. The holes in the sweater appear to be intentionally shown. Would be an odd coincidence if the sweater just happened to have them there.

Question: Was there a deleted scene where Cathrine and Ellen were talking while making the turkey in the kitchen and/or doing something resulting in the bird being "overdone" totally and showing up in the scene at dinner causing the turkey to literally explode in a cloud of dust when carved by Clark? It just seems there was a scene missing there!

Chosen answer: There was never a scene as described in the film, nor was there anything in any of the special features. Also, there is no mention of it in any of the commentary.

Question: Salt has been with the agency for a long time and has earned the trust of her colleagues, so when she is accused of being a spy, why would her superiors take the word of a defector over her?

Chosen answer: They have to at least investigate that kind of an accusation, and when Salt so vigorously resists arrest it basically confirms, in their minds, that she is in fact a spy.

Question: What is the title of the lovely and haunting Indian tune played as the credits run?

Question: Who is Mr Banks in the film saving Mr Banks?

Reslbraveheart

Chosen answer: The name refers to George Banks, the father in the Mary Poppins story. P.L. Travers, the author, based the character on her own alcoholic father.

Question: In the opening scene, one of the thieves said "where's your purse?" to the bank manager before they are going to leave the bank. What's the meaning of this phrase? Also, just following that, one of the thieves looks puzzled into a room where the security guards are restrained on the ground, before he joins another thief to leave the bank in their car. Why did he look puzzled at that time? Thx.

trytototo

Chosen answer: 1) Jem wants her purse to get her ID so he can follow her and eliminate her if need be, as he has already decided to take her as a hostage. 2) This is Doug coming back into the room and noticing that Claire is missing, taking her as a hostage was not part of the plan.

Time Again And World - S2-E6

Question: How was the title of this episode written? It makes no sense; is it a play on words or something?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It is basically in reference to the fact that when they arrived, everything that was happening happened when they were leaving the last world. So it was basically time again means it is the same thing and world means similar world.

Question: Why did William cover the healthy people but did not cover the sick people?

Chosen answer: People that are in need of frequent medical attention usually end up costing their insurance providers more money than they pay them in premiums, so it's simply a matter of the person's coverage becoming a liability for the insurance company.

Question: When Senator Keeley thinks that the Goldmans are acting weird because of Senator Jackson's death and Albert replies to him about how it's dreadful news etc., did Albert know about Jackson's death, or did he just improvise on the spot?

Heather Benton Premium member

Chosen answer: Most likely, he improvises on the spot, dodging and recovering, as he did all the way through the scene.

Michael Albert

Question: It might just be in my head, but, at the end, when Gretchen talks to Donnie's mom, it seems like they knew each other or their 'conversation' had a deeper meaning. Does it really?

Flamedeiros

Chosen answer: The characters who died in the first running of time are known as the "manipulated dead" who were required to die to fix the hole in time. So although when the hole is closed at the end and the characters didn't die because time has been altered, they can't remember anything that happened, but supposedly have some kind of recognition for each other as the events were like a dream to them.
