Question: What happened to the rest of the crew at The End of season 8? During Back to Earth there were a few memorials and pictures of people, including Kochanski - is one to assume that was the whole crew?
Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: Why does Leo have powers in this episode that we never see him use again? Levitating for example, reheating a cup of coffee. The refilling the water could be explained by his normal white-lighter powers. I think it's probably because the writers changed their minds about what exactly would constitute white-lighter powers. However how is this explained, in canon? Leo as far as I remember doesn't levitate again, neither does Paige or Chris. It isn't as far as I remember established as a white-lighter power.
Question: In the lunchroom cafeteria scene after Cheng sadistically and purposefully slams Dre's lunch tray all over him and knocking it over, Cheng says something to the teacher in Mandarin that is omitted by the English subtitles before Dre yells "Whatever he's saying, he is lying." What is Cheng saying?
Question: On the Air China Boeing 747 plane, Dre hesitantly mumbles something in Mandarin. What is Dre saying before the Asian businessman on the same plane across the row is insulted and replies "Dude, I'm from Detroit"?
Question: In a few episodes, notably "Jewpacabra" and "Le Petit Tourette", Kyle is literally saving Cartman's life, which, as shown in "Le Petit Tourette", Cartman thanks him enormously for. But if Kyle's done these things for him, then why does Cartman still rip on him for being a Jew? And why doesn't Kyle remind Cartman of the fact that he's saved him numerous times and he should be grateful instead of mean?
Question: I understands that all the 10 characters at the motel actually exist inside Malcolm's head, and the fact that their date of birth are same (i.e. 10th May) is to support this. My question is: if Malcolm's head was able to come up with 10 different names of the characters, then why wouldn't he come up with 10 different date of birth as well?
Question: When Biff and his gang are first chasing Marty on the skateboard in 1955, Marty escapes by grabbing the tailgate of a passing pickup truck which tows him around the corner. The gang jumps into Biff's convertible to continue the pursuit, and Biff's convertible actually has a rear-end collision with the pickup truck, barely missing Marty. How is it that the truck driver doesn't even react to all this insane activity and the rear-end collision? Rather than stopping and demanding an explanation, the truck driver continues away from the scene without even slowing down.
Question: At a certain point there is a cut to a studio scene of a supposed current affairs programme called, (title super on screen), "PROBE AROUND" on crime. There is a stirring piece of classical music used as an intro to the supposed programme, what is it? I know it, but I simply cannot remember the composer or the work. Could you possibly tell me what it is?
