Britney's New Look - S12-E2

Question: What is the name of that suspense song everyone keeps singing?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: It is based on the song 'Ave Santani', the song used in the movie "The Omen" (the lyrics of which are in Latin) The lyrics to their chant are "Hetus. Alte omnibus. Virtu e poquebus. Rectus. Hoc honebus." Which is Latin, Spanish and gibberish. "Omnibus" is Spanish for "bus", while "poquebus" and "honebus" are both Latin-sounding nonsense words. It loosely translates to "Glad. Other bus. [Poquebus] of courage. Correct. This [honebus]".

Matters of State - S2-E7

Question: Does anyone know the name and composer of the piece of music being played when Henry and Anne are dancing (interspersed with their passionate sex scene)? It sounds like Henry asks for A Valta but I'm not sure. (00:19:55 - 00:22:05)

Chosen answer: Henry asks for a volta which was a type of dance as well as the general type of music played for it. It would be like requesting a waltz or tango.

Question: What kind of clothing is that being worn by the character Lock-Nah, the "enforcer" of Imhotep's cult and (apparently) Ardeth Bay's nemesis? He's obviously supposed to be African, but is that a specific type of garb or did they just make up an African-themed wardrobe for the movie? And does anybody know:A) What kind of sword it is that he always carries and fights with?B) What is that big dagger(?) he throws at Ardeth in the O'Conells' mansion? C) At the Oasis of Ahm Shere, what language is Lock-Nah speaking when he shouts for the soldiers to "Fan out! Eyes open! Guns up!" when thunder starts rumbling?

Chosen answer: A) It seems to be some kind of Shamshir or Talwar. B) It is a kind of African throwing knife, there are different names as they tend to be very different in shape.

Question: In the opening to the movie, when the Army of Anubis first appears, you see a man fall headless and Anubis himself (or at least what appears to be the Army's leader) steps on the body, sweeps his weapon over it, and howls into the air. What is that weapon? Is it real or invented for the movie? The same character wields the same weapon later when the Army faces the Magi, and Imhotep wields the same weapon against Rick O'Connell's dual axes in their fight before the Scorpion King shows up. Any idea? I gotta know what that weapon is. (00:03:50 - 01:45:55)

Chosen answer: It's called a 'khopesh'.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: It's an Egyptian Fan Axe. As far as I know, they did exist.

Evolution of the Daleks (2) - S3-E5

Question: What are the words being chanted in the Dalek "theme music" in this episode?

Captain Defenestrator Premium member

Answer: Hebrew for "What is happening?"

Chosen answer: There are no words. It's just strange alien music.

Driven to Tears/Rule of Dumb - S4-E17

Question: In "Driven To Tears", why was SpongeBob jealous of Patrick getting his license?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Because though he is really bad at it, SpongeBob has been giving it everything he has for years to get a license. Patrick can barely walk and remember to breathe at the same time, and gets his on the first try.

Grumpy Scot

Question: In the scene in which Morpheus offers Neo the blue or red pill, what is the music that starts playing as Morpheus takes the pills out of his metal container and continues after they get up?

Chosen answer: There was a bootleg version of the complete Don Davis score for the film going around - chronologically I would say this piece of music was part of the track titled "Down the Rabbit Hole."

Home Invasion - S1-E2

Question: If I remember correctly, the Harmons moved to LA 6 months after Ben's affair. He mentions treating Tate for several weeks. How is it that Hayden is just now finding out she's pregnant? Also, that she is early enough into the pregnancy to have an abortion?

Chosen answer: He flew back a few times to be with her as mentioned in their fight.

Question: At the beginning of the movie, as Doc, Marty and Jennifer are leaving in the time machine to go to 2015, Biff sees the DeLorean fly and then disappear. It perplexes him greatly and he even states, "What the hell is going on here?" 1) Why wouldn't Doc have been more careful when he knew that anyone could've walked out of the McFly house and seen the DeLorean? 2) Why didn't it alter things in the future? Sure, Biff may not have told anyone about what he saw, but it's unlikely since he witnessed such a strange event.

Zinka17

Chosen answer: There's no real explanation about why Doc wasn't more careful, but he is an eccentric person who often acts on impulse rather than logic. It also serves the movie's plot for Biff to be there when he was. Biff in 2015 is an old man, and he is obviously somewhat confused about what he saw. He may well have thought it better to say nothing about it for fear he wouldn't be believed and could be accused of hallucinating the event.

Question: If Candy King returns Ralph's medal, then he would have effectively "refunded" Vanellope's entry into the semi-finals, meaning that Ralph would not have needed to wreck Vanellope's cart. If so, what is Ralph's motive for destroying the car?

Jaffacake

Chosen answer: He wrecked her car because the Candy King wanted Ralph to stop helping her, and tries to convince Ralph that that if the 'glitch' Vanellope races everyone will think the game is malfunctioning. Therefore, the game console is removed, the candy citizens are gameless, and since Venellope can't leave she will be lost forever. Even though all this was a lie by the Candy King, Ralph cared too much about her to take that chance. In addition, if everyone knew how Candy King got the medal back, they would have known about his true motives!

Flesh and Stone (2) - S5-E5

Question: What did Amy mean when in response to "You'd slow us down, Miss Pond," she replies "I don't want to sound selfish, but you'd really speed me up"?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: With the rest of the group she would be moving faster then she would if she were alone.

Simpsons Bible Stories - S10-E18

Question: Bart's Dream: If Goliath II was a good king who built roads and hospitals, then why did he kill Methuselah?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Because he wanted to be king. He could have had good intentions all along or had a change of heart sometime after he took over.

LorgSkyegon

Maximum Homerdrive - S10-E17

Question: When they are eating dinner at the beginning, why does Homer's jaw stop moving?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: He got lockjaw from the bite inflicted on him by Lenny.

MasterOfAll

Question: In the LEGO video game, LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4, LEGO Gilderoy is revealed to wear a wig in the game. Does Gilderoy wear a wig in this movie? If so, when is it most noticeable?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: In the scene where Gilderoy is hastily packing his office after being "called out" to save Ginny, he is seen grabbing a wig off a head mannequin. This would imply that he did indeed wear a wig.

Question: In the end credits, the very last character in the cast is someone called Reader (Les Bubb). Who is that character and when did he appear? Also the cast is in order of appearance, so he would first appear in the movie after Aragog did?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Les Bubb worked on the Harry Potter films as a voice actor for minor characters. There's no exact indication who he played, but it's likely he was the voice of various portraits, background characters, and other characters who were either unseen or represented by special effects.

Question: At the end of the movie Colin Farrel checks his arm and sees that the mark they put when he was sitting in the "recall" chair was gone. Does this mean this was all a dream? I mean, the "spy recall" that he wanted?

Chosen answer: The absence of the tattoo on Quaid's arm hints that the whole scenario could have been a memory, brought on by Rekall.

THGhost

Question: It seems to be made clear that Holden is the father of the baby, since there were issues with Phil's sperm. However, Justine had sex with Bubba as well. What about the possibility of him being the father?

Chosen answer: I think you answered your own question. The only certainty is that Phil is NOT the father because of fertility issues, though he apparently deludes himself into believing that he has somehow gotten Justine pregnant.

Tailkinker Premium member

Question: When Cartman says he saw Kenny, Kyle says he sees Kenny everyday, on the face of every child, on the smile of every baby and he and Stan starts laughing. What does the joke mean?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: They don't believe him, so they're making a sappy joke about him "still being here all around us."
