Casual Person

Question: One of the locations is The Kelp Forest. What episode did that appear in?

Blunder Bot The Mistake Machine

Casual Person

Question: One of the locations is The Industrial Park. What episode did that appear in?

Casual Person

Question: After passing the Bouncer, when Constantine first enters Papa's Lounge, what type of entity is inside the "sack", apparently being picked apart and eaten alive?

Chosen answer: A pig, you can hear it squealing better in the deleted scenes without the background music of the club.

Question: How could surgeons remove the shrapnel from Tony's chest when they were unable to before?

Chosen answer: Advances in technology. Throughout the film series, we've seen improvements being made to technology, so it's entirely reasonable, particularly with Stark turning his considerable intellect towards the medical field in order to remove the Extremis infestation from Pepper, that he could have determined a safe method of finally removing the shrapnel.

Question: At the end Peter dumps Gwen so she'd be safe. But wouldn't a keen super villain notice that they dated for a bit and capture Gwen?

Dankydanc100

Chosen answer: Any supervillain would have to (a) work out that Peter Parker was Spider-Man, (b) learn that he once dated Gwen and (c) make the assumption that he still cared about her. Yes, this is still conceivably possible, so, true, she's not absolutely safe. On the other hand, if they continue to date, then points (b) and (c) become rather obvious, making her an almost certain target. Breaking up with her minimises the risk.

Question: What happens to the Natives? After the first contact with Denham & Co and the sacrifice of Ann they make no further contact with the group, even when the group are inside their village at various points after this.

Chosen answer: They scared them off with their guns. In the scene where they capture Ann to sacrifice her to Kong, Denham and his men come to rescue her and when they start shooting the natives hide. It's never fully explained but the most likely answer is that they are too scared and have even moved villages or are just hiding really well.

Question: In the scene of Mother Gothel stabbing Eugene, is it possible for him to die that fast from that wound?

Chosen answer: All she had to do was nick the right blood vessel, and he could have died much sooner. So, yes, it's possible for him to have died that fast. We have to assume the lack of blood was just Disney toning things down and not representative of the actual severity of the wound. If appearances counted for anything at all in the world of Disney, there'd be no such thing as a mortal wound.

Question: Is this the last movie to be shot, edited and finished on film?

Chosen answer: It's a bit difficult to find out this sort of information as not all films released disclose what they use to edit on. Michael Kahn is perhaps the most famous editor around to edit on flatbed machines and switched to digital editing for time constraints. Many film schools still teach and use flatbed editing so you may still see short films edited on film, just not feature length movies for a variety of reasons.

Cold Blood (2) - S5-E9

Question: If Amelia can remember the people in 'flesh and stone' when they stepped into the 'W' crack, how come she can't remember Rory after he is taken at the end of this episode?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: The Doctor said Amy remembered the clerics because they weren't part of her life, but Rory was. That's why the clerics forgot about the other clerics, because they are part of each other's lives. So you can still remember people being erased from time if they are not part of your life.

Casual Person

Question: It is stated that Maximus from "Tangled" briefly appears somewhere in the movie. Can someone please point out which scene he can be found in? I also know where the dinosaur from "Meet the Robinsons" appears. If there are any other characters from some of the previous Disney animated films who make brief appearances, can someone please identify where to find them? (01:41:00)

Chosen answer: When Ralph and the other bad guys enter Game central station. The camera pans out, to the lower left corner there is Maximus and in the upper left corner you can see the dinosaur. If you still can't see it, there is an intermission mode on the DVD that will allow Chris Hardwicke to explain this and other interesting things about the movie.

Question: Question regarding the search for Annie's parents: When Mr. Warbucks launches the nationwide search for Annie's parents using the best legal and investigative minds of the day, should they not have discovered that said parents died in a fire? The authorities somehow knew there was an abandoned child and where to send the parents' "junk", and Miss Hannigan was informed of the deaths. Obviously, someone knew Annie was at the orphanage and whose child she was. How did Warbucks' top notch team of private eyes miss that?

Chosen answer: Mrs. Hannigan's box of Annie's parents' things might have the only record of her birth certificate. This is the 1930s, after all. Paper records went missing all the time.

Question: During the scene where the kids are eating in the diner and they are talking about the train crash, you can see Joe's father getting out of his police car across the street at the Auto Sales lot. I've noticed in movies that they don't usually have a major character appear in a scene without a reason, even in the background. So it makes me wonder if they cut out some interaction with Joe's father in the diner, or if this diner scene was originally intended to appear at a different point in the film, such as when Joe's father visits the car lot when the owner is complaining about things missing from his cars. I've watched my DVD many times, and I only just noticed this. Now I'm dying to know.

Lucy Wants New Furniture - S2-E28

Question: Lucy buys a 3 piece sofa set. One piece is an armless sofa chair. It is seen in the next episode but is never seen again. Where did it go?

jodees

Chosen answer: It's not known. She may have moved it to the spare room or it may be in a corner just off camera. There could be any number of reasons, though it probably took up too much room on the studio set, and it was removed, making it easier for the actors to move around.

School Reunion - S2-E6

Question: Which episode did Sarah-Jane meet the Loch Ness monster? (This will be in the classic series in the years 1973-1976).

Shadow5

Chosen answer: This happened during the events of the 1975 story, "Terror of the Zygons".

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.

oddy knocky

First, I don't have a great memory - I had to re-watch the movie, writing down the numbers: 7 jumpers, 4 overdoses, 5 hangings, 3 mutilations, 2 strangulation's plus 22 natural deaths - I get 43 total ==> but later we hear of a man that drowned in his chicken soup... which fits none of the categories mentioned including natural. There is also mention of heart attacks, which I don't know if you would categorizes these as natural considering the circumstances. That is to say, they just didn't detail all 56 deaths. The book might, and mind you a book made into a movie is always too fast paced with so much detail crammed into 2 hours... there is really no time to digest all the material. I'm guessing this is a much better read. Also this movie PRE-supposes that a person understands a lot of things... I had to look the stuff up after the first viewing... then came to this site (as a means of looking some stuff up). Here's my low down - after the fast forward second viewing, literally taking notes: 1. The room is not haunted - something in the room is evil ==> this is stated when the hotel owner has conversations with writer just outside of the office on route to the elevator 2. The writer expresses this is : the seventh circle - the 7th circle is where those that committed the following violations are punished: a. Crimes against neighbours b. crimes against self >suicide c. Crimes against God, Art (grand daughter of God) and nature 3. The writer has pleaded Guilty as charged in the hotel managers office to charges of: believing in nothing (this would be God - and he states so later) and believing in no-one but himself 4. The writer opens the bible - and the page falls to Nathans Parable -2 Samuel 12 ==> had to look this one up - this is about being judged - mostly about a man who kills another and takes his wife - it's about judging yourself and paying for your sins. In this story the wife brings forth a child that god strikes down with sickness and the child dies... among other things. 5. It is generally believed that there are 3 things that allow for better mind control - or mind opening/bending experiences: a. Sugar b. Alcohol c. Drugs ==> he was given a bottle of alcohol which he consumes as well as chocolate squares on the bed - presumably the evil force has provided these to allow better mind control 6. All the pictures show some form of evil: the Schooner lost at sea, should we presume an act of evil in addition to potential future acts of cannibalism? The Hunt: which is where I believe the hotel owner originated from: escaping from a pore in the picture - he was the hunted (no glass covering on the picture) and he provided the alcohol - he also tries to stop the writer from taking the room, saying he doesn't have to do this (punish himself) and/or the manager senses the end of the room and potentially his existence Lastly the old women reading to the three children... I just can't make this one fit...which is actually when I started to review the relevance to evil there. The writer says the children are deranged...? 7. The demons all originate from the pictures - I think; the manager of the hotel, the knife wielding woman (schooner) . I'm unsure about the guy in the vent. That is to say, the pictures have brought the evil to the room; and the room has become a room where those who should be punished in the 7th circle are. 8. To prove the punishment room theory: in the file folder, as the writer approaches the room 408 - the notes indicate a man with the notation that: his brother was eaten by wolves on the Connecticut Turnpike - I'm guessing there was an act of cannibalism there. 9. Further to prove the punishment room theory - acts against art are really usury and charging interest (loan shark style - high rates to those that are desperate) - we see a business man jump - which later appears to be the man from the newspaper article that says: Dec. 06, 1938 Chicago factory owner leaps from bridge - stating Financial issues Ultimately this room is about judging yourself, deciding your own punishment and the evil forces dispensing the punishment. Think about the maid that only blinds herself with scissors, and the writer who has presumably already paid for most of his sins (daughter dies) but is still forced to suffer heat, cold, drowning, mental illness, isolation etc.

Season 3 generally

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?

Brad Premium member

Question: In terms of her personality and attitude, what was Calhoun like before her first fiancee was eaten by a cy-bug? (01:41:00)

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.
