Question: What is Clark's biological mother's name?

Chosen answer: Her name is "Lara Lor-Van" (though it was originally "Lora", not "Lara"). Look here for more information about her.

Question: Was Morgan Freeman in the room when Frankie helped Maggie die?

Chosen answer: No. Only Frankie was there. He would not want to incriminate his friend (Freeman) in what is depicted in the movie as an illegal act. In reality, however, Maggie had every legal right to have her life support removed.

Question: Could the police in the film legally pursue Ted Danson's son (Macauley Culkin) the way they did? Merely possibly knowing about a crime doesn't seem like grounds for arrest.

Chosen answer: I think they can. Using a measure called preventive detention, law enforcement agents can prevent a crime before it happens.

Question: When Randall takes a photo of Warren and Jeannie at the airport after the mother's funeral, what happens to the camera he uses? He seems to put it down on something behind Warren, but then walks past Warren to get his luggage. Warren walks forward toward the gate and isn't seen to pick anything up after saying goodbye. I guess he could have, but wouldn't it have been stolen by then if it was left behind? I didn't see Randall put it in a pocket or bag.

Chosen answer: He could have picked it up. Besides, it may not have been stolen, but picked up by security, or otherwise taken to Lost and Found.

Question: I'm assuming that when Graham received the phone calls from Sophie & Olivia, who Amanda thought were other girlfriends, they were actually from his daughters. I have a couple of questions about this. Firstly, for the girl's names to flash up on his phone they must have their own phones but surely the youngest one at least is far too young to own a phone and ring her father? Secondly, wouldn't Graham when receiving a phone call from his daughter answer it instead of saying, "I'll ring her back"? I know at this point Amanda doesn't know he has kids & he might be trying to hide it from her, but later he does answer a phone from the other kid in front of Amanda before she finds out about the girls.

Chosen answer: 1. As far as the daughter being too young to ring her father, there are actually some companies that make phones especially for children. They only dial the parent and the police and are very easy to use. 2. It's entirely possible that he didn't need to speak with Sophie right away, whereas the call from Olivia comes later and he may have been expecting it.

Question: I get that all of the scenes may be shot out of sequence. However, I don't understand when exactly John Travolta dies. When he is shot by Bruce Willis after coming out of the bathroom, Travolta is wearing the plain suit, yet he leaves the coffee shop restaurant with Samuel L.Jackson, the two are wearing the old T-shirts and short shorts. And they were given those clothes after their original suits got all bloodied.

Chosen answer: There's a long period of time between those two scenes, at least long enough for him to put on some new clothes. I doubt he only has one suit, considering the business he's in. Notice that he's working alone. Jules had vowed to quit the business. This would be the second to last scene, if shot in order.

Gary O'Reilly

Question: What is the "3rd" or "Lost" disc that I've seen mentioned? I have the 2-disc edition. How do you get the 3rd disc?

Chosen answer: It was released as part of a three-disc edition. As far as I know, there's no way to get it without simply buying the three-disc version, which is probably not worth doing if you already own the two-disc edition.

Tailkinker

Question: What is the name of the song called that they dance to in the club? It is when Tyler is in a group of boys and Nora in a group of girls. Tyler then steps out and improvises his own moves.

Chosen answer: It is called "Till The Dawn" by Drew Sidora.

Question: What song is playing when Esqueleto first eats the corn on a stick? Part of the lyrics are something like "yes, I am a foreign man".

Chosen answer: The song is Hombre Religioso (Religious Man) by Mr. Loco.

Question: What was the *exact* recipe for Bond's cocktail in the casino?

Chosen answer: From the novel: "Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel."

Question: I don't understand how to get to the easter egg. I have several episodes and I tried it on all of them but it doesn't work on any - even the ones that say disc 2. So if someone could help me out or give me specific instructions that would be great.

Chosen answer: This only works with the first season. Simply follow the directions in the Easter Egg section of the Viva La Bam page. Unless for some reason the easter egg was removed from your particular copy.

Show generally

Question: How do you spell Rachel's surname? I always thought it was GREENE, but lots of subtitles seem to think it's GREEN.

Chosen answer: The most often used spelling (in the credits where her parents appear, for example, is Green. However, Greene is used on occasion, such as the nameplate in her office.

Question: Is Collins a homosexual? Because he loves Angel as a woman but Angel is actually a man. So is he gay because he loves a man or straight because he loves a woman?

Chosen answer: He is homosexual. He loves Angel as a person. Albeit, a person who is a man that dresses like a woman.

Phixius

Question: Is the trailer made by Amanda for the film starring Lindsay Lohan for an actual film? If not, how much was Lindsay Lohan paid to appear in the trailer?

Chosen answer: I'm not sure how much she was paid, but no, it isn't a real movie.

Question: Superman says to Lois in the interview that he never lies. Is the fact that he never lies something he has decided to do or is something that all the people from Krypton have the inability to do? If it is something that the people from Krypton have the inability to do, then how come at the beginning of the movie when Jor-el is telling the Krypton council that the planet is going to explode, no-one believes him?

Chosen answer: Superman has chosen to use his powers on Earth for the good of mankind. It would seem that lying to them would be an unneccessary thing to do, so it appears to be a personal choice. Interesting trivia: the closest he comes to lying is when he tells Lex Luthor to get Zod and company into the molecule chamber in the second film. Listen closely, he only says that it is a molecule chamber that takes away their powers, he never actually says that being inside will make them lose them, only that he wants Luthor to get them to go into it.

That may be the closest "Superman" comes to lying, but Clark Kent does appear to lie. After the mugging scene in the first movie, Clark tells Lois the contents of her purse, and when asked how he knew (obviously from his X-ray vision), he says "wild guess" which was a lie.

Question: Why did they cast an English actor to play Juggernaut when in the comics he is born and raised in America?

Chosen answer: Because they felt Vinnie Jones was best suited for the part. Movie-makers are in no way required to adhere to every single little detail about the comic book characters, and in fact made several small changes to better suit the story and the media of film.

Twotall

Question: When Rose comes down the staircase, and Jack kisses her hand, does he say, "I saw that on Nickelodeon once and I always wanted to try it." Why does he say this?

Chosen answer: He does NOT say "on Nickelodeon" he says "I saw that on A Nickelodeon." A Nickelodeon was a turn of the century entertainment device where a user, for a nickel, could look through a viewfinder and watch a very short film, usually projected using flip cards.

Question: Who is the strong player with the Russian accent whom Josh plays in the park near the beginning?

Chosen answer: Vasek Simek.

Question: When Axel and Mikey return from the bar, Axel opens the door to his apartment, goes in and - almost immediately - two thugs come out of a hideaway and catch Mikey, beat him up then shoot him. Why Axel didn't come to investigate? Is he deaf or something?

Chosen answer: Axel gets knocked out by one of the thugs as soon as he opens the door. His boss later make mention of the fact that he's lucky he didn't get killed too. They probably spared him because he didn't see who hit him and therefore could not tell anyone what they looked like.

XIII

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

Question: I'm not positive it's in this episode, but there's a very cool, very large poster/print on the wall in Rachel's room that says "Film Noir," visible in a few scenes. Does anyone know who the artist is, and whether the print is commercially available?

Chosen answer: It is a vintage italian art print. Google images may come up with something if you search that phrase. Otherwise check on allposters.com.
