Question: On Disney Wiki, there is a suggestion that Felix had fixed Calhoun's broken heart. Did he do that by kissing her cheek, or how else did he do it?

Chosen answer: He fixed her heart by showing her love again, but this time with a happy ending. Her back story was made so that her previous lover was eaten and killed on their wedding day. Felix is supposedly able to fix anything - not necessarily just with his special hammer. He fixed her heart with himself. He gave her a new back story.

Question: When King Kandy returns Ralph his medal, King Kandy also convinces him that if Vanellope wins the race, she will become a popular player for the children that play in the arcade. Yet, with her glitching making the game seem like it is malfunctioning, the game will be unplugged while Vanellope stays in the game and dies. He even mentions that he is trying to protect her. Ralph knew that King Kandy and his minions where chasing him and Vanellope because she was like a wanted criminal as a glitch. Why does Ralph believe him anyway?

Chosen answer: Ralph knew Vanellope was a glitch. His choice was either let Vanellope win the race but let the players think she was malfunctioning and have the game unplugged or stop her from racing and the game wouldn't be unplugged. Ralph wasn't going to take the risk of the game getting unplugged and have Vanellope die so Ralph had no choice but to believe King Candy so Vanellope would stay safe no matter what.

Question: The human race has lived on the Axiom for 700 years, with no trips to Earth during that time. So how do they keep making food after all that time? Especially with no plants or animals on the ship.

Zinka17

Chosen answer: You are assuming that there are no animals on board. The Axiom is a massive ship so plenty of room to put animals. Even if there are no animals on the ship there could be processing facilities that might be creating chemical based food products.

Question: When Auto shows the captain the video about the president saying life is unsustainable on Earth, you can see the president putting on a helmet before going outside. The air is obviously toxic. So how, 700 years later, are the humans able to breathe when they go back to Earth? The air would be even worse by then.

Zinka17

Chosen answer: After 700 years the toxins were all filtered away through the plants that eventually started to grow. with oxygen being the obvious aftermath.

MasterOfAll

Question: Where exactly does Felix and Calhoun's wedding take place?

Chosen answer: It takes place in Hero's Duty. We know that from the earlier flashback where Calhoun and her previous fiance we going to get married and the fiance was killed by a cy-bug. Since the cy-bugs were only ever in Hero's Duty, then it would have to have been in Hero's Duty.

Casual Person

Question: In the beginning of the film, Eli kills the cat with the arrow. He has donned a full gas mask and protective clothing. If the air was bad enough that he was not able to breathe it for fear of toxic fallout, how could he have eaten the cat and not gotten radioactive poisoning anyway?

dbfilms

Chosen answer: I believe Eli was donning such protective gear, not as a means to protect himself from fall-out or any other such dangers but rather, as a means to mask his scent from the wild animals he was hunting. He would have been 'sniffed out' otherwise and nothing would have even come close.

It was camouflage.

Question: I've seen this movie about 10 times now but I always wondered the next thing. After the Titanic hits the iceberg, they knew the ship would sink. Couldn't they go back to the iceberg and survive there and wait for help? Surely there would be more places, and it would be warmer on the iceberg than in the water?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: Trying to turn the Titanic and return to the iceberg would just have put additional strain on the ship's structure, likely hastening its sinking. So the only available option, short of swimming, which is obviously insane, would be to use the ship's lifeboats to ferry passengers over to the iceberg, which, given the lack of capacity, would have taken multiple trips and a considerable amount of time. Once they reached the iceberg, there would be no way to tie the boats securely to the iceberg to allow the passengers to cross over safely; icebergs usually have pretty sheer sides anyway, making boarding impossible without specialist equipment that they didn't have. Even assuming, for the sake of argument, that somehow this could be done, the passengers are now sitting on a large block of ice in the middle of the night, in, for the most part, inadequate clothing. Hypothermia would rapidly set in, leading to death within at most a couple of hours, before any help reached the scene.

The Thin White Line (1) - S3-E1

Question: In this episode, Peter and Brian escape the rehab centre to visit the teenage pregnancy clinic, where they prank the girls who are asleep by dipping their hand in a dish of water, which causes them to give birth prematurely. How does that prank make that happen?

OliviaD3601

Chosen answer: It's a common slumber party trick to put someone's hand in warm water, which is supposed to relax the person and make them wet the bed. Peter and Brian's plan just worked better than they'd planned.

Season 10 generally

Question: Does anyone know why in season 10 Calleigh Duquesne is not seen as much as in previous seasons and when she is seen she's never in the field?

Chosen answer: She was pregnant and they did not work the pregnancy into the show, so she had to stay behind a desk where we couldn't see that she was pregnant.

Question: In the middle of the film Mr. Lovett tells Rose that "the ship will sink, don't tell anyone to cause any panic and go to a boat, quickly!" After that he says "you remember what I told you?" which Rose replies "yes, I understand". What was this about?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: When this happens, Rose is talking to Mr. Andrews and he is referencing a conversation they had while walking on the deck of Titanic (when Rose wears the blue dress). He said that there weren't enough lifeboats for half the people aboard because the deck would look too cluttered.

Question: This might be a dumb question, but when Snape and McGonagall are dueling, it seems like McGonagall casts a spell which Snape blocks and it hits the Carrows who are behind him. My question is did the Carrows die as a result of that? Was it really the Avada Kedavra curse? And if it was McGonagall's spell then whose fault was it? Hers? Or Snape's because he blocked it?

Chosen answer: The Avada Kedavra is depicted as involving a flash of green light, which is not present in this case; McGonagall's spell has a more fire-like appearance. It is therefore reasonable to assume that the Carrows were merely knocked unconscious when Snape deflected it (almost certainly intentionally, given his true allegiances) towards them.

Question: When DK beats up Sean for spending time with Neela, what is the translation of what he says after he says "or the only thing you'll be driving is a wheelchair"?

Chosen answer: I believe he says 'find another driver'.

Question: Why doesn't Ron get off the knight on the last move of chess before getting attacked by the queen? Does he have to stay on it?

Joel Sheffield

Chosen answer: Unfortunately, he has to stay on. By the rules of the game, he IS the knight, he's not just riding it, so, when he allows himself to get taken in a sacrifice play, he has to take the consequences.

Question: Why do we never see babydoll dance?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: Because what happens inside her mind when she is dancing is more important than the dance itself. Besides which, the whole movie takes place within her mind before the lobotomy, and most times when you dream, you don't see yourself as others see you.

Question: When Wendy takes a picture at the start of the 'Dive' thing, can somebody explain me why the 'v' in lighted off when she looks at her camera? Does this has anything to do with somebody's death?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: When the v flicks off the word letters D I and E are still lite up, DIE. it is a sign from Death that people are about to die.

Answer: Pretty much only superstitious people would think that something is wrong. Oblivious people would have thought the V had flicked at the right moment.

It says "High Die" which signifies that everyone is going to die from being on a roller coaster; something that is high up. Also, I'm pretty sure Wendy would've noticed the "V" flickering while she was taking the picture, or else she wouldn't look so surprised by it; did you not notice that she looked past the picture that every letter was fine?

Question: I got a few questions regarding the 'time-equipment'. 1. what exactly was Doug doing with the red laser when he watched Claire? HOW did he do this? 2. When they observing Claire in her home, she thought somebody was watching her. Was it the bad guy standing outside the door, or was it the cops with the time-equipment?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: Doug was pointing the laser beam into the past. Since Claire got the feeling that she was being watched when in reality no one was there (besides the scientists watching from the future through the screen), it can be said that the "screen" itself is a gateway to the past, an access way to the wormhole, explaining how Claire saw the red laser beam and why she felt watched.

Question: Near the end of the movie, the bad guy went to start his motorcycle but he suddenly went back to the boat, can somebody explain me why he did this?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: He saw the truck Doug drove away from the bait camp in. It was parked on the street from where Doug parked it as he and Claire arrived. This was Orestadt's truck, so he knew somebody was on to him and on the ferry to stop him.

Question: Can someone explain me what's the problem when Doc went to 1885? He's got the time machine with him, so why didn't he just come back?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: The unexpected jump brought on by lightning striking the DeLorean caused the circuits to fry. Since Doc didn't have the equipment to make new ones in 1885, he decided to hide the car and resigned himself to life in 1885.

Question: How is Hulk a total mayhem on the aircraft carrier, almost killing Romanoff, but at the end he is acting as a team member? Banner did reveal his secret how to control not turning into Hulk, but not how to control Hulk himself...

Chosen answer: During the end sequence of The Incredible Hulk Banner discovers that he can aim the Hulk in the right direction, give it a goal, which he uses to defeat the Abomination in that film. Key to that appears to be willingly accepting the transformation into the Hulk, which he does by choosing to jump from the helicopter. On the Helicarrier, Banner doesn't want to transform, it's caught him by surprise, he's fighting it, which is why it takes ages, is seemingly very painful and, as an involuntary change, the Hulk is out of control. In the final battle, Banner chooses to make the transformation, to "suit up", as it were, and thus the change is swift, painless and results in the cooperative Hulk capable of working with the others towards a goal.
