High Anxiety (2) - S4-E14

Question: There may not be any reason for this, but why did Buck want to ride to the quarry in Hank's truck?

Chosen answer: At that point in the investigation Buck was trying to frame Hank for the murder of Debbie. Buck tried incriminating him on tape and planting a shotgun shell in his truck. Using Hank's truck to go to the quarry gave him an opportunity to plant the shotgun shell. Why he picked the quarry specifically is left unknown, but it was likely one place that would be deserted and easy to speak freely.

Question: I noticed the librarian, Judith, never appears after the retrieval of penicillin, I say this because I missed a tid-bit of the film after they acquired it. Is she there just camera shy or did she freeze?

Chosen answer: She is indeed alive. Take a close look at the scene when Jack Hall arrives. Judith appears in that scene.

Question: In tournament action, is the crane kick an actual legal move to use? How about the stance to start the move?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: There are no rules about how a fighter must stand before throwing a kick, and it's basically just a jumping front kick, which is completely legal.

Question: In 'Breaking Free' Troy doesn't look at Gabriella until a few seconds after what should have been the start of the first line. Does this mean that Gabriella should have started the song, but Troy encouraged her by starting the song?

Chosen answer: I'm not positive, but that is what I've always assumed.

Question: I have one question I'd like to ask other viewers. In the opening sequence at 01:48, is it just me or does that look a LOT like Anne Hathaway in a blonde wig? You might need slow motion to few this. The next shot is of the "real" Anne Hathaway kissing her boyfriend and it struck me that they look very similar. At 02:31 you see the blonde again and she somehow looks very different. What do you think?

xx:xx:xx

Chosen answer: I watched this scene several times, and my personal opinion is that the first shot of the blonde woman is not Anne Hathaway. The blonde actress in question appears to be the same woman, although the differing camera angles may make her look slightly different.

Question: What is the (store) name on the slushie cup? It was in the extras on the DVD but I can't find it anywhere on the net. I was thinking it was something like 'Lick & Gulp', 'Slurp & Gulp' or something like that.

Chosen answer: Slurp & Slush - it's on this picture: http://www.axelmusic.com/resources/covers/back/024543506874.jpg.

Question: They may have answered this, but how does the island have plumbing, power, and Internet if it is remote and almost completely uninhabited?

Chosen answer: Generator. It's shown several times during the film.

Brenda Elzin

Question: I've noticed that Eric Clapton's "Heaven is One Step Away" is on the movie soundtrack. Does it appear in the film, and if so, where?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: The song is playing on the Red's radio while he is lying on the bench outside the Courthouse when Marty arrives back in 1985.

Question: Was Mrs. White in love with Wadsworth? She seemed to be getting rather close to him in the beginning of the film (i.e., giving him a hanky when he's crying about his wife, playing with his tie and being flirtatious when he won't let her outside), but then seems to turn a 180 and not really like him. Why?

Chosen answer: No, Mrs. White was not in love with Wadsworth. She may have been slightly physically attracted to him at the time of the "hanky incident", but it is more likely that she only felt sympathy for this poor man. As for the playing with the tie incident, she only did that so he would let her out.

Question: At the end of this movie the main guy is lobotomised and put back into the Cube. Is this supposed to be the start of the original Cube movie? Because the dialogue is very similar (about liking the blue room), but it is not exact and his name is changed.

Simpsonholic

Chosen answer: Yes, it is implied that Kazaan and Wynn are the same person. The scenes are nearly identical except for the way Wynn is shown, as in, we don't see him fall from the room above as we did with Kazaan. But, yes, they are essentially the same scene.

Knever

Question: As the Black Pearl arrives at Shipwreck Cove, Tia Dalma and Barbossa have a very confusing conversation. Soon afterward, Barbossa has Tia Dalma sent to the 'brig.' Why would he need to lock her up, when everyone knows she wants to be freed from her human form?

xx:xx:xx

Chosen answer: She's showing her power over him, and he doesn't like that, seeing that he used to be immortal, and how she is the goddess of the sea. She also poses a threat, as she is what Davy Jones is really after.

Homebodies - S4-E3

Question: OK, I don't get it. Who killed Suzanna? Was it the same guy that raped her? And how were the two cases interlinked?

Chosen answer: As I understand the episode, yes the man that raped Suzanna then killed her. She makes the comment during the line up that "he already knows it's me" and I guess you are to assume that he tied up the loose end by killing her since she didn't pick him in the line up and he was set free. And I believe they get fingerprint results that confirm that Kelly James was also responsible for the first crime scene.

Angela Brown

Question: What are the scars on John Creasy's hand from, when the laser is on his hand at the end? When he is standing on the bridge with his hand on his chest the scars look the same size as a bullet?

Chosen answer: Creasy was a POW. A general was questioning him while captured. Cigarettes were put out on his hand as a means of toture.

Show generally

Question: What episode of Jem is this? In it Jerrica who had a secret identity was worried because her boyfriend liked both her and Jem. She got advice from Synergy who told her to become a third identity to test him. She did, and he fell for her too. She was upset until Synergy then said that this actually meant that he really loved her because he must love her soul, because he loved her in any form. I looked up the series on the internet and can't find any episode described this way. Maybe this was a B story of an episode? Could someone tell me what season the episode is in and what the episode is called?

Lori Kaminsky

Chosen answer: This was an episode from Season Three, entitled "Midsummer Night's Madness."

Chanteuse66

Question: In the prologue, Michelle Yeoh put a curse on the Emperor and all who followed him, turning them into terra cotta statues. Her lover, General Min, was still a follower when she cast the spell so why did she do it? I thought she loved him. Can someone explain this to me please? Wouldn't it make more sense if she had placed a curse on the Emperor himself?

Chosen answer: At the point that she cast the spell, General Min's relationship with her had already been discovered, and he was about to be punished, so he would no longer be a follower of the Emperor.

GalahadFairlight

Question: The 'I'm Dating Matt Damon' song at the end of the film. What is it a spoof of and where can I get the lyrics from?

Chosen answer: It's a spoof of the Sarah Silverman song called "I'm F**king Matt Damon", plenty of versions to view on YouTube

You Only Move Twice - S8-E2

Question: What does Bart mean when he says that the remedial class students have mittens pinned to their jackets all year?

Chosen answer: The only explanation I could find is that some jackets have mittens sewn to them to help prevent the wearer from losing the mittens. Whether this comment is a reflection of the mental state of the children is a possibility.

Lummie

Question: When Harry is brought to Dumbledore's office after dreaming about Mr. Weasley being attacked, what does Dumbledore mean with "but in essence divided"?

Chosen answer: J.K. Rowling explained its meaning during an online chat at TheLeakyCauldron.com shortly after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was published. Says Rowling, "Dumbledore suspected that the snake's essence was divided – that it contained part of Voldemort's soul, and that was why it was so very adept at doing his bidding. This also explained why Harry, the last and unintended Horcrux, could see so clearly through the snake's eyes, just as he regularly sees through Voldemort's. Dumbledore is thinking aloud here, edging towards the truth with the help of the Pensieve."

Question: Something I've never understood. Why does Stan write IT on the bathroom wall?

Chosen answer: That's his suicide note. His wife doesn't know what happened when they were kids, but he most likely assumed that his friends would hear about his suicide and know that couldn't face "IT" again.

Question: Richie, Eddie, Beverly, Ben and Bill don't remember anything about each other or the events in Derry. For example Bev's husband reads one of Bill's books and she doesn't recognise the name, and Bill doesn't know who the architect Ben Hanscome is. Why is it that Stan not only recognises Bill's name and remembers him, but also remembers the Turtle?

Chosen answer: They don't remember each other throughout their lives, but when Mike calls them they have flashbacks and recall each other. They all remember when they're reminded by Mike.
