Question: What is Sheldon's problem with Kripke?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: It's probably nothing personal, but with the combination of his IQ and his superiority complex, along with the fact that they study in the same field, Sheldon just feels that Kripke is beneath him as a scientist.

Question: How come the Jedi didn't sense Palpatine was a Sith Lord?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: He is a Sith master, just as powerful as a Jedi, he concealed himself. By controlling his emotions and suppressing them, until he achieved his goal of ultimate power.

Question: Why did Palaptine wait for Order 66?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: He needed Anakin totally on his side before ordering the assassination of the Jedi order. If Anakin wasn't fully committed he might refuse to join him after executing order 66.

Question: Did Darth Tyranus know that Sidious was going to betray him?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: Nope, you can see the surprise on his face when Palpatine orders Anakin to kill him. He then realises Anakin is Sidious' new apprentice. He fully expected to defeat Anakin.

Question: What is the whole conversation in the first French class between Chris' friend, the teacher and Sarah?

Question: The scene where Angier and Cutter capture Fallon is the one scene in the movie I still don't understand. Why does Borden decide to walk after the show, why does Fallon follow Angier, and how did Angier know that Fallon was going to follow him in the back alley so that they could trap him?

Chosen answer: Borden decided to walk simply because he felt like it; Fallon noticed Angier start to follow him (Borden), and was worried he might do something (remember, earlier Angier shot Borden's fingers off), and so tailed him; Angier knew that Fallon and Borden were inseparable, and that Fallon would follow him, and so broke off from Borden and trusted that Fallon's curiosity would lead him to fall into the trap.

Question: Near the end of Die Hard, who is the terrorist carrying the bonds that Bruce knocks out? What happens to him? He obviously isn't dead from a punch. Just is out cold and on the floor as Bruce shoots Hans and the other terrorist.

Chosen answer: There were a few terrorist survivors. Kristof the guy carrying the bonds, and also Theo, who Argyle knocked out, would be arrested and eventually sentenced to prison.

Question: What do you reckon Rose would have done had the Titanic not sunk? Since they wouldn't have had to go back to her stateroom due to the seriousness of the collision, Jack may not have been arrested, so do you reckon Cal would make sure she was in sight of him, Lovejoy or Ruth at all times and then force her into the arranged marriage or do you think she would've found a way to be with Jack?

Chosen answer: There is no reasonable way that Rose and Jack could have remained together if they'd all made it to New York safely. Rose had too many eyes on her, and her marriage to Cal had already been arranged, so she could not have gotten out of it. It would have been a fairly easy matter for Cal to keep Rose under essentially house arrest until they were wed.

Question: Did Darth Vader know that the Emperor intended to replace him?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: Yes, the Sith Rule of Two requires that the master kill the apprentice and claim a new one, or the apprentice kill the master and become master himself.

Jason Hoffman

Question: Was Dooku just a placeholder for Anakin?

DFirst1

Chosen answer: That's one way to look at it. The Sith sought to grow stronger, and when a potentially stronger apprentice comes around, the "upgrade" is too tempting to pass on.

Question: When Angelo Palazzi is gassing the jet crew, there is a voice mixed into the crew's gasps saying "Answer the question." Has anyone else ever heard this?

Chosen answer: I just watched this movie, and in this scene, while I didn't hear that particular phrase, there is constant talking by the air traffic controller over the radio requesting routine information from the crew about their flight status. The conversation became more urgent when the stricken crew were no longer responding. In that event, a logical comment from the controller would be, "Answer the question."

The Vacation Solution - S5-E16

Question: Why did Penny lie to Leonard by saying Bernadette wants a prenup when it's her dad who wants a prenup, and why is she gossiping about it in the first place?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She is simplifying the situation. Bernadette may not be the one insisting on the Pren, but she is going to ask Howard to sign one. She's gossiping because she likes to gossip.

The Stag Convergence - S5-E22

Question: I don't get why Bernadette got mad at Howard just because he didn't tell her about a couple of women he used to date. I don't also get why she started getting upset and running to her room just because of what Penny said. Can someone please explain them to me?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: She is upset at Howard not because he didn't tell her, but because he lied to her. He claimed to have told her about all the women he slept with but didn't mention many of them. She is mad at Penny because she thinks Penny betrayed her by setting her up with someone she didn't respect and expected them to fail.

The One With Phoebe's Uterus - S4-E11

Question: When Phoebe is sitting on the couch with her mother, having just received the puppy, towards the end you can see a strange thing sitting on the couch behind/next to her. I can only view it on a small screen, but it looks like a phallic shape. It would make sense, considering that her mother makes erotic pottery, but is that what it is?

Chosen answer: It is one of Phoebe's mother's sculptures. Whether or not this particular piece is erotic is debatable, but it can be defined as "non-objective" abstract art, meaning there's no recognizable shape or subject to it.

Question: If Quinn and Robin had no idea what island they crash landed on AND the plane's navigation system and radio had been knocked out by the lightning, how were they able to navigate straight back to Makatea once they retrofitted the plane and eluded the pirates?

Chosen answer: Once they were in the air, Quinn would be able to navigate by sight. He was an experienced pilot and and was familiar with the territory and the different islands' configurations. He would also be looking for ship traffic, and he had a general idea which of several islands they were on. Once in the air, he would easily know which direction he was heading based on the position of the sun.

Question: Why did Alex take the thermometer out of his mouth right after Karen said not to?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Because he's a typical kid who does the opposite of what he is told to do.

Question: What did Jernigan mean by twenty seconds out when the Stephan's were being robbed? And why did Alex tell the police woman he had the chicken pox the first time he called 911?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: "Twenty seconds out" means that they are approximately twenty seconds away from the house. Alex said it to give a reason as to why he was home and not in school.
