Question: Dr. Grant asks Eric how he got T-Rex urine. Eric replies, "You don't want to know". How did Eric get the T-Rex urine anyway?

dollors

Chosen answer: It's never explained how he got it. Any explanation the filmmakers might give would probably be implausible.

Question: Has the mother been cast yet? Also, does the film crew know who the mother is already?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: She was finally shown at the very end of the last episode of season 8, continuing into season 9. The actor's name is Cristin Milioti: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2129662/.

Question: Did The Jackal let Koslova die slowly in punishment for trying to kill him at the pier?

Chosen answer: He wants her to pass a taunting message to Devlin. So much so, that he even helps her to slow the bleeding down before she dies too soon.

Question: Why would Meinhard need to have been shot if the bomb would have taken everyone in the room out? The only reason I can think of is that Moriarty has considered the possibility of Meinhard surviving and has thus ordered Moran to shoot Meinhard to give him no chance of surviving whatsoever. Can anyone kindly confirm this or give a better explanation?

Chosen answer: That sounds entirely right. Bombs are potentially unreliable; it's possible, albeit unlikely, that Meinhard could have survived the blast, so by getting Moran to shoot him dead first, then covering up the true cause of death (and thus who the real target was) using the bomb, it ensures that the job gets done.

Question: I would like to know why, when they check in the hotel, Vesper is angry when Bond tells her to sign the reservation, because she represents the treasury?

Mike_Casinoroyale

Chosen answer: It's because he's blatantly blowing their cover. They're supposed to be masquerading as a professional gambler and his lover, so when Bond goes up to the counter, gives his real name rather than his cover name and states directly who and what she is, it understandably annoys her.

Question: When the animals go to tell the dwarves about the witch trying to kill Snow White, why is Grumpy all of a sudden concerned about her? He's the first one to say that they have to go rescue her and then is leading them back to the cottage, although up to that point he hasn't liked her at all.

Chosen answer: He's oppositional, sure, but that's just who he is. It doesn't mean he doesn't like her.

Question: This question pertains to New Moon and Eclipse: When Billy is telling the story of the Quileutes and the "cold ones", he says the cold ones can only be destroyed completely by fire. We've seen James and Victoria be destroyed that way, but Laurent and Riley were killed by the wolves. Was fire not necessary in their deaths (there was no evidence that the female vampire in the story was further destroyed by fire) or is it really not the only way vampires can be destroyed completely (according to Stephaine Meyer at least)? It seems unlikely Jacob and the rest of the pack would have matches or lighters with their clothes every time they remembered not to phase with them on.

Chosen answer: In the books, fire is the only way and the parts of the vampires are gathered together after the battles and burned. In the films, a mere beheading seems to do the trick, so while Billy's story in the film stays faithful to the books, in actual practice the films do not.

Question: When Charlie stabbed Kirby, just as he walks away, did she say, "f*ck", or am i hearing things?

Answer: Well. She must have whispered it ultra quiet, because I heard squat. It's not on the subtitles, either.

Alan Keddie

Chosen answer: Yes, she does say it.

Question: After Sanchez has killed Krest, he goes to Bond and pays him for his information. Bond then says to him something like "only one man? No one would go after you alone." Did this mean that Bond was trying to get Sanchez to kill all his own men? Seems a bit ambitious to me.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It's more likely that Bond is trying to instill fear and paranoia into Sanchez, getting him to suspect that everyone is trying to kill him so that he trusts no one.

Army of Ghosts (1) - S2-E15

Question: When Rose is snooping around after having put on the white coat, she passes a few fire extinguishers in a hall. In the room with the Void Sphere, there's another one. But they're all silver. I may just not be worldly enough, but I've only ever seen red fire extinguishers. Are they like that in the UK, or is it a Doctor Who thing?

Knever

Chosen answer: It's a Doctor Who thing, fire extinguishers in the UK have been red since 1997. Before then different colours represented different contents (water, foam, etc.), but it's unlikely the extinguishers seen would be that old.

Question: When Lenny calls the first time, Vincent looks at Annie's business card in the mirror and gives Max a look. Does this imply that Vincent knows that this is his last target? His conversation with Max about whether or not he should call Annie suggests otherwise, but I was curious.

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Vincent already knows that Annie is one of the targets on his "hit list." He was probably just surprised that Max had her business card.

Question: Are there any actual restaurants like Jack Rabbit Slim's out there, where booths are done up like cars? I know the restaurant they filmed in was torn down afterwards and I can't find anything online, so any help would be appreciated.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Disney World has one.

Grumpy Scot

Question: What was the knife that Cruise used in the cab to cut Max loose and later in the club fight?

Chosen answer: It is a Sebenza made by Chris Reeve.

Question: Are Carly's deceased brother (briefly glimpsed on a picture on Carly's dresser) and the British NEST soldier from Transformers 2 the same person?

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: Yes, you can very briefly see him when Lennox is briefing everyone in the chopper, in the opening of Revenge of the Fallen.

Friso94

Question: Say that a client of Merrick Biotech, like Starkweather who used his policy and had it terminated, needs another one for whatever reason. They'd have to regrow a new Starkweather 2 Delta and reintroduce him into the colony and everyone would say "Hey, isn't that the guy who won the lottery a few days ago? What's he doing here?" How would Merrick account for that? Whitman even says to Lincoln that they were going to "regrow" his policy.

Brad Premium member

Chosen answer: It would be easy enough for the administrators to fabricate some story as to why the clone needed to return to the colony. Doctors would most likely implant fake memories into the new clone's mind to convince him and everyone else that this was the same person as before. Also, if a client should ever need a new clone many years after using their original one, it is likely that most of the other clones would no longer be there--having been harvested to meet their host's medical needs.

Question: When Captain America is rescuing the POWs, he's asked if he can get them out and he replies, "No problem. I've knocked out Adolf Hitler 200 times". I found it odd that he gave such a specific number. Is it maybe a reference to something from the comics (not just the number of War Bond sales pitches he has given)?

Chosen answer: No, it was just the number of performances he's done. The number was specific simply because the line was funnier that way.

Question: Why didn't Koslova look behind the sofa when entering the living room? And why did she shoot like a crazy person?

Chosen answer: Basically she was somewhat sloppy. She was caught off guard by the unexpected turn of events.

Question: Was it just me or did the Earth not stand still in this film at all? And also can you explain the film's events to me.

Shadow5

Chosen answer: No, it sure didn't. It's just a figure of speech referring to everyone's attention being focused on the alien sphere. In the opening of the film, a man's genetic material is harvested in order to grow a body for a member of an alien race to inhabit. Many years later, this alien individual comes to Earth to warn the population that their violent nature has marked them for termination now that they have developed space travel and their violence poses a threat to the rest of the universe. They must stop immediately to avoid this fate. The alien ambassador is attacked before he can deliver this message, rather proving the point he came to make. His robotic guardian is provoked to the point of initiating the extinction sequence, and a small group of humans sets out to prove to him that the human race is worth saving before it is too late.
