Question: Since season four ended with Cordelia in a coma, was Spike written into this season to fill the void created by her absence?

Cubs Fan

Maria Santos

Question: What about the morgue director? Was he in on it with Carson?


Chosen answer: At the end of the movie, the police ask Kyle to look at a photo to ID the morgue director. So he was in on it. He had to be because Gene/Carson didn't have the code to open the casket. Therefore he could not have put the explosives into the casket. Remember he needed Kyle to leave it open on the plane.

Question: What kind of accent does Daniel Day-Lewis speak with?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Daniel Day-Lewis based his voice for and characterization of Daniel Plainview in part on old recordings of the director, writer, and actor John Huston. An article by Christopher Goodwin in the Sunday Times (of London) revealed Paul Thomas Anderson sent Day-Lewis documentaries about Huston while Day-Lewis was preparing to play the role.


Question: After Sweeney kills Signor Pirelli, why isn't Toby curious about where he is/why he's missing?

Cubs Fan

Question: At the end of the film, when Jack dies, one of Davy Jones' crewmembers says, "Not even Jack Sparrow could best the devil," and suddenly Jones becomes worried and demands to see the heart in the chest. Why did he get so worried?


Chosen answer: Jones knows that Sparrow is a cunning adversary - while he knows that the Kraken has taken Jack into the Locker, his crewmember's words have suddenly put an element of doubt in his mind. Has he really beaten Jack completely, or has Jack pulled off some last minute trick involving the heart to spite him? Hence his sudden desire to check on the heart, to make sure that it's safe.


Question: What are the infected humans doing when they are huddled up together when Will Smith first finds them in the abandoned building? Are they sleeping? But then how is the deer killed?

Chosen answer: When Sam chased the deer into the bank, Robert was terrified. Yet his love for Sam outweighed those fears and he enters the bank anyway. As he is looking for Sam he encounters the deer lying on the ground (now dead) As he peers around the corner he sees one of the infected feasting on the entrails of the deer. He continues to look for Sam and it is then that he finds a hive of infected "sleeping" within a bank vault.

Question: If so many famous, high-ranking people were involved, and many of the records of the heist are classified, how did the complete story become known? It would seem no one should have known about the photographs and such.

Chosen answer: The complete story isn't known. There was a bank robbery, and after a few days of press coverage there was a gag order put in place to keep the press from talking about it. No one knows for certain why other than the people who were involved. This film is speculation, a possible reason for why there was a gag order. The producers of the film claim to have been working with an inside source who knew the truth for the gag order and cover-up. Whether the producers really did have an inside source, or that the source was telling the truth, will likely never be known for certain.

The Blaze of Glory - S2-E16

Question: When Julie comes to Alex and Marissa's apartment and they argue, Marissa says that she'll just steal if she can't get a job, and says that Julie knows she is good at that. What is she referring to?

Chosen answer: She is referring the episode entitled: The Best Chrismukkah ever, episode 13, season 1. She goes out christmas shopping with Ryan and gets stopped by a security when she is out by Ryan's car. He asks to look inside her bag and finds a stolen watch and some other stolen things.

Question: What was it in the book that Mulgrath was after? Something about destroying the fairies.


Chosen answer: The book was full of the secrets of the hidden world. If Mulgrath had it, he could destory all the other creatures.

Question: Why were the sprites so desperate to protect the book?


Chosen answer: If I remember correctly, it's because the book contains information on how to destroy them. Had the book fallen into Mulgarath's hands, he would have been able to eliminate them and rule over the rest of the faeries.

Cubs Fan

Question: Was the bank employee who was taken into the back room and "beaten" one of the robbers? If not, was he actually hit or was it fake like the "shot" hostage? I couldn't tell if he was one of the ones in the car at the end.


Chosen answer: The beating was real and no he wasn't one of the robbers. The men who participated in the hold up along with Clive Owen's character were all much younger than the employee who was beaten up. The much older guy in the car was not part of the robbery.


Actually the guy that was beaten WAS part of the robbery. The 4 involved were they guy that was beaten, the guy that was Algerian that asked for a glass of water bc his throat was "parched, " the big breasted girl that said she violated "section 34 double d" and Clive Owen, obviously. If you check the credits on IMDB you will see that the guy that was beaten was Steve-O. They are all listed. The girl was Stevie and the other guy was Steve.

The One In Barbados, part 1 - S9-E23

Question: How come Rachel is wearing a cast on her left arm? You can see it when she notices Monica's hair.


Chosen answer: Jenifer Aniston injured her wrist outside of filming and had to wear it for a little while.

Question: Maybe I missed it, but how did Peter prove Eddie's photos were fake?

Question: Can someone please explain to me what Violet says when she frees them from the prison? No matter how many times I see this movie, I still don't get it.


Chosen answer: She says "Well, I think Dad has made excellent progress today, but I think it's time we wind down now". It's a joke, pretending to be winding down a counselling session, based on the fact that her father has been baring his soul a bit while imprisoned.


Question: This is for the movie and the comics. Can Jon hear Garfield? I'm asking because in the comics, Jon responds to what Garfield says, but Garfield's speech is always in thought bubbles. But in the movie, Garfield's lips are moving. Can someone please explain?


Chosen answer: Jon makes educated guesses in the comics based on Garfield's body language and surroundings, he doesn't actually hear Garfield in either medium.


Question: What was going on with John Michael Kane's body in the morgue? Nicky said that Wombosi saw the body and didn't buy it. Were they trying to pass off the dead man as Bourne?


Chosen answer: Yes, exactly. Kane is one of Bourne's identities and apparently one that he used extensively during the preparations for the mission to eliminate Wombosi. Wombosi goes to see the body, but, having seen Bourne, albeit relatively briefly, realises that the body in the morgue is not the same man.


Question: What are those metal things Mr. Furious wears on his forearms?

Grumpy Scot

Question: Is the montage of murders before the re-opening of the restaurant supposed to be shot in real time or is it going over days around the same time of different days?

Question: How come Lisa's presentation was changed from "An Inconvenient Proof" to "An Irritating Truth" for the DVD release?


Chosen answer: I saw the movie at the midnight showing on its first release in Michigan and it was "An Irritating Truth" for me there. It still says the same thing for my DVD.
