Question: In the office scene where Mike and Olin are speaking of all the deaths that have occurred in room 1408 they say a specific number for each type of death. I added all the numbers up and got 43 but Olin said there had been 56 deaths total. Is my addition wrong or was is it a coincidence that there were 13 deaths they didn't speak of?

Chosen answer: After they recite the types of deaths and the number attributed to each one Mr. Olin also says that there have also been natural causes of death as well which surprises Mike. The natural causes of death add up to the other 13 deaths.

Question: Does anybody know what happened to Eddie? He just vanished in this season.

Chosen answer: No, it has not been explained where Eddie went; the characters don't even mention him.

He went to a dancing school.

Victory of the Daleks - S5-E3

Question: When they are talking about the Daleks at the end of this episode, this is what they are saying: DOCTOR: It's not that. There's something else. Something we've forgotten. Or rather you have. AMY: Me? DOCTOR: You didn't know them, Amy. You'd never seen them before. And you should have done. You should. (They go inside the Tardis and it dematerialises, revealing a glowing w shaped crack in the wall.) My question is: What is the Doctor meaning by what he is saying to Amy?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: The Doctor is referring to the events of the two-part finale of the fourth series of the relaunched show, "The Stolen Earth" and "Journey's End". These episodes featured a major Dalek invasion of Earth, something that Amy should remember. What concerns the Doctor, leading to the conversation you refer to, is that she apparently doesn't, because if she did, she'd have recognised the Daleks the moment she saw them.

Question: I've noticed that throughout the movie, the first two fingers on many character's right hand are orange. Most noticeable when Holden sees Banky at the end and in the lesbian bar when Banky is swapping stories with Alyssa. What's the significance of this?

Question: In terms of her personality and attitude, what was Calhoun like before her first fiancee was eaten by a cy-bug?

xx:xx:xx

Chosen answer: Calhoun's demeanor is depicted as having been significantly affected by the death of her fiance. The brief montage of their courtship and wedding - as well as her flashes of recognition during her later scenes with Felix - indicates she was likely once a very different person. That said, as her backstory was given to her, rather than her being actually going through that experience, she's only ever really had the personality shown in the film.

Question: What is the name of the airport that is featured during the ending scene in which Carl is following Frank and tells him "Nobody's chasing you" ? Or at least, what airport is it supposed to be?

DialingForDollarhyde

Chosen answer: It is not mentioned, though it is likely Reagan (at the time Washington National) or Dulles, as they both work in Washington DC.

LorgSkyegon

Question: In the scene where Elliot signs the contract, there is a magnificent red fountain pen on top of the papers. Does anybody know what the pen is, or if it is even a real commercial pen?

Question: After turning into a werewolf, what is it Lupin mutters as Hermione is walking over to him? It's very difficult to understand, but it sounds like words. Not just whining. (I don't know if it is in the theatrical version. I am noticing it on the DVD copy).

xx:xx:xx

Chosen answer: He's not saying anything, it's just unintelligible whimpering. It gives the impression that Hermione is able to communicate with him, but once Lupin has transformed into a werewolf, he has no human consciousness.

Question: Could someone please identify all of the villains seen in the conference room at the beginning and what video games they are from?

MasterOfAll

Question: I don't really understand how Voldemort dies. The scene shows Harry and Voldemort fighting with the two spells - Expelliarmus and Avada Kedavra - and the spells collide. Then Harry disarms Voldemort and catches the wand, and then Voldemort just dies. Can anyone tell me why he dies?

Chosen answer: It's a little complicated. Voldemort actually died by his own hand, though unintentionally. Voldemort believed he commanded the Elder Wand and cast the Avada Kedavra curse at Harry with it. However, Harry was actually the Elder Wand's master. Because wands are somewhat sentient, the Elder Wand recognized Harry as his master, so the killing curse rebounded off him, and went back to Voldemort, striking him dead. All of Voldemort's Horcruxes had been destroyed, so he was no longer protected by them. At the same time, Harry cast the Expelliarmus charm, causing the Elder Wand to be ejected from Voldemort's hand into his.

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Question: Is the reason for Amelia's crack due to the fact that in series 7 'Angels take Manhattan' she gets zapped back in time, and the crack is there to put those two parts of her life together?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: No. The cracks in time were caused by the TARDIS exploding on Amy's wedding day. The reason why they were at the locations they were at was because the Doctor was there.

Silence in the Library (1) - S4-E8

Question: Is it possible that the 'Silence' part in the title is hinting that River is part of 'the silence'?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: No.

MasterOfAll

Jewpacabra - S16-E4

Question: At the end of the episode, is Cartman really serious about converting to Judaism and understanding how Jews feel or is he just lying like he usually does?

Chosen answer: I would assume he is lying, Cartman seems to continue his Jewish prejudice in the episode following.

Question: Why would Alan test an electric fence by grabbing it with both hands? That's like clicking a gun at your head to see if it's loaded. Couldn't he have tried kicking it or maybe tapping it with his hand?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Alan already knew the electricity wasn't turned on when he grabbed it. He first tested the fence by throwing a stick at it and nothing happened. He could also see that the warning lights on the fence post were off. He only touched the fence cables to play a joke on the two kids, to lighten the mood a little.

raywest Premium member

Answer: The stick testing the fence would not work because wood does not conduct electricity.

Show generally

Question: Who did the drawings on the etch a sketch that was on Chandler and Joey's door?

Chosen answer: It was actually a Magna-Doodle and the sketches were sometimes done by the various cast members or more often by crew members Greg Bruza or Paul Swain. Other crew members would occasionally contribute over the years, as well.

Question: In the part where Mary first finds out Steve is Fran's fiancée and they are forced to dance together. They start arguing and at one point Mary says what she's thinking involves a machete and a pair of pliers. What does she mean? I've never understood that.

Gracie's-mummy

Chosen answer: The thing that immediately popped up in my mind was using the machete to slice off a certain male appendage, and adding insult to potential injury, that the appendage is probably so small that she would need a pair of pliers to hold onto it. I don't know if that's what the filmmaker intended as the meaning, but that's what I read into it.

Question: In the scene where Forrest is talking to Bubba's grave, he says, "for saying, "I just love playing ping pong with my Flexolite ping pong paddle" which everyone knows isn't true, but momma said it's just a little white lie so it wouldn't hurt nobody." He also told his mom that he only like using his paddle. What type of paddle did Forrest actually use?

Chosen answer: His red paddle from the military - the brand is never specified.

Question: On the side of the Sugar Rush game cabinet, Vanellope is depicted in a white racer suit. How come she is never seen in that very suit when racing inside the game, even after the game is reset to its normal mode?

xx:xx:xx

Chosen answer: For the same reason as noted in a correction: "Cabinet art (and box art for home versions) often does not match what actually appears in the game. For example, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989) for NES' box art showed an image from the comic book, with all four turtles wearing red masks, but the game itself was based on the cartoon series where each turtle had a different colored mask."
