Question: Why was Daisy keeping the old chicken dinners under her bed?

Chosen answer: It is very common for bulemics, as Daisy was, to be embarrassed by the food they eat. It's only natural for her to want to hide her eating habits. She states that when she gets 5, she has to throw them away. You imagine the smell of 5 rotting chicken carcasses under your bed after 5 days. Her father seemed to be a very powerful man so therefore she has some special treatment and is allowed to indulge a little. As long as she's eating, they'll let her have the chicken.


Question: Where does the web go once Spiderman is done swinging from it?

Chosen answer: Per extras on the DVD, the web dissolves after a few minutes.


Question: I still don't understand why Flint Marko shot Uncle Ben. Can someone please explain it in full detail?

Chosen answer: He didn't mean to. If listen at the end of the movie Flint says "Your Uncle Ben told me to put the gun down and go home, then my partner came and the gun went off." So the gun went off by accident (either due to being surprised by his partner or maybe being knocked by him). Flint had no intent on killing him after what Uncle Ben said.


Question: On my DVD from Thailand, when the queen is talking to the old man, just after loosing her child, it is voiced in Thai. Can someone tell me what they are saying?

Chosen answer: The old man is telling Queen Gorgo that he will arrange for her to speak in front of the elders, so she can persuade them to send the Spartan Army to help Leonidas. He also tells her that he will arrange the meeting in 2 days time, and advises her to get Theron on her side, no matter what, as he controls the council.

Question: Why does Hallie put a piece of apple under Annie's ear?

Stephen Edmonds 1

Chosen answer: Three reasons. 1) She wanted to have something hard on the back of her ear so that she could pierce the lobe easily and have the needle enter the porous apple 2) the apple was cold and moist which would help the pain from the piercing 3) it was the most readily available thing to use for this since they were at a summer camp with no facilities for ear piercing.

Question: Has Carrie's sister, Sara, ever been mentioned again after the first few episodes, and why was she taken off?

Chosen answer: Sara hasn't been mentioned in later episodes, and it suggested in later episodes that she never existed, and that Carrie is an only child. Kevin James stated that the producers couldn't think of an good plots to use with Sara, so they left her out.

Question: On IMDb, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are listed in the credits, having voiced Woody Car and Buzz Lightyear Car. I don't remember them, where in the film did they appear?

Chosen answer: During the closing credits they do "car" versions of other Pixar films. This includes "Toy Car Story" (which is where the Hanks and Allen credits come in), "Monster Trucks, Inc." (Billy Crystal and John Goodman), and "A VW Bug's Life" (Dave Foley). The joke here is that Mack (John Ratzenburger) is watching the movies and commenting about the voice talent of certain characters and that it is the same person doing all the voices. John has provided voices for all Pixar Features to date (including the upcoming Ratatouille).

Steven Hart

Question: When I read the cast list for this movie, I have noticed that Presidents Lyndon Johnson and John F. Kennedy are "playing themselves" in this movie, even though they are dead. How did the editors managed to put Tom Hanks near the actual Predsident?

Chosen answer: Tom Hanks was inserted into actual footage of the presidents, replacing real persons who were there at the time. Computer editing was then used to modify the presidents' mouth movements to match dialog that was recorded by voice doubles for the film.

The Socratic Method - S1-E6

Question: In "The Socratic Method," Lucy Palmero (the patient with supposed schizophrenia) has a book that is read to her throughout the episode - the quote most often used is "I will talk no more of the long war" or something similar to that. What book is this from? I tried to spot the title when watching the episode, but I couldn't get it.

Chosen answer: The line, "I will talk no more of books or the long war" comes from a poem called "Her Praise" by WB Yeats, so the book could be one of many collections of poetry or Yeats' poems. You can read the poem here if you'd like:

Hank's Dirty Laundry - S2-E17

Question: Who left the videos and the note on the porch for Hank?

Question: What animal was the Ribwich sandwich at Krusty's restaurant made from?

Chosen answer: Unknown. All that is known about the animal is that it was smaller and had more legs than a cow. But it must be some kind of insect since that is the only group of animals where some of the species have more than four legs.


Question: Do Borat and Azamat talk in a real other language, or are the actors just saying gibberish for the movie?

Chosen answer: According to an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen, it's actually Hebrew disguised by a very heavy fake Eastern European accent.


I, Roommate - S1-E3

Question: Is the tune that Bender is whistling when he comes to work actually real and if so, what is it? He is also whistling this tune in some of the other episodes.

Chosen answer: According to the DVD commentaries, John DiMaggio (the voice of Bender) was instructed to just make something up for Bender's whistling, to avoid any potential copyright issues.

Question: What is the episode when Spongebob is stepping on toy ducks?

Chosen answer: "The Secret Box", or maybe "Karate Choppers".


Question: Why didn't Maul take his cloak off when he fought Qui-Gon on Tattooine? It just seems kind of odd because it would probably (1) make you hotter as you move around in the sun and (2) make it harder to move around.

Chosen answer: His Sith training would teach him to ignore the "pain" of the heat, and the cloak, like Jedi cloaks, are specifically desnigned not to limit movement. He attacked as he leapt off his speeder, so he wouldn't have had time to take it off anyway.


Question: When Julia goes to see Hitch, what is the music played when she does the great dancing with the facepaint on?

Chosen answer: The song is Crump Clown by Rize.

Question: What's the name of the piano solo music which can be heard throughout the movie? Since the movie has no soundtrack, can someone please give me its name and the place where it can be found?

Chosen answer: The Movie has a soundtrack, and that lovely piano solo music is actually the theme song, composed by composer David Shire. You can find it here, on Amazon -

Question: I know the pilot was shot and shown in 1989, but were there any other episodes shot and or shown along with the pilot?

Chosen answer: No, The Seinfeld Chronicles (the first episode) was filmed and broadcast by itself, and eventually the series was picked up by NBC. Only then was the next episode - "Male Unbonding" - filmed. The next episode to air after the pilot was "The Stakeout", almost a year after the pilot was broadcast.

Question: When Nick and Elizabeth are looking at Nick's wine collection, what does Nick mean when he says, "I think my sister was conceived on this"?

Chosen answer: He means that his parents were more than likely drinking or drunk on that wine the night she was conceived.
