Question: Kind of a silly question but nonetheless; If Spider-Man were real, would he really be praised like in the film, or would the police do everything to stop him from being a vigilante? Would there be fines? Jailtime? Just very curious.

Chosen answer: Normally, he'd be considered a vigilante, but if the police and government somehow verified him as a super hero, they may allow him to act alongside the law (sort of like Batman) but not outside it. If super villains existed as well, I think they would most definitely allow him to work alongside the law. However, if Spider-man killed anyone, they'd issue a warrant for his arrest.

Question: How were the vocal effects for the Ghost Rider done?

Chosen answer: Ghost Rider's voice was manipulated by sound designer Dane Davis. Davis filtered Cage's line readings through three different kinds of animal growls that were played backwards and covered separate frequencies. Davis then amplified the dialogue through a mechanical volumizer.

Question: How did Peyton get back in the house at the end without keys?

Chosen answer: The same way any common criminal gets in to a house, she "broke" in by either kicking the door, or smashing a window, etc. A locked door is not that hard an obstacle to overcome.

Question: How is it that both Annie and Hallie both have the same hobbies (fencing and poker and) like the same foods, such as oreos and peanut butter? They were raised apart from each other.

Stephen Edmonds 1

Chosen answer: Technically or at least genetically they are the same person. Being identical twins they have the exact genetic makeup. Being a twin myself I can attest to the fact that some of your likes and dislikes are genetic. You are predeterminded to like certain hobbies and sports, let's say, and liking the same food has to do with the development of the tastebuds and that doesn't matter where you live or with whom.

Boobra

Question: I've read that in the expanded/extended universe books, Palpatine has a son named Triclops, who he was disappointed in. Why didn't he like him? Why wouldn't he want to try to train his own son instead of spending time trying to get Vader's son to join him?

Chosen answer: For one very simple reason - Triclops was a pacifist.

The Substitute Spanish Prisoner - S6-E2

Question: What does Dr. Visoza mean when he says that if Peggy "dropped a box of toothpicks" in front of Jimmy Witchard, she would understand how the Intelligence Institute expects a lot from him?

Chosen answer: He's referencing the movie "Rainman." He's saying Jimmy is autistic.

Grumpy Scot

Show generally

Question: I've read that the shows creators are friends with Mike Judge, the creator of King Of The Hill. Is this one reason why, in the "Cartoon Wars" episode, the boys walk through the King Of The Hill studio without anything happening or any insults being made?

Chosen answer: This is more likely because they mean to imply that nothing ever happens on that show.

Question: At the jazz club, after Peter dances with Gwen, Gwen is upset and asks "That was all for her?" when she realizes that Peter was only dancing with her to bother Mary Jane. However, isn't Gwen still Eddie Brock's girlfriend?

Chosen answer: Not really. They only went out for coffee once. In Eddie's mind however, Gwen is his girlfriend.

Question: Does anyone know if the Trans AM and the truck used in the film are still around?

Chosen answer: The original "Bandit" Trans am no longer exists, but one from the second movie is kept at The Performance Car Museum, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Answer: The trailer appeared in a recent episode of "The Walking Dead"

Question: In the scene where The Bride smashes Buck's head in with the door, surely after 13 hours (the time it took for her to sit in the car and 'wiggle her big toe') someone would have noticed Buck was dead and the police would be involved. This would probably lead to them searching his car as well. I know it may be a deliberate mistake seeing as The Bride hasn't been chased for killing anyone else, but there were police in the beginning of the film so they do exist.

Chosen answer: Not necessarily. She probably stashed his body in her room. Nurses would rarely come in as she was comatose, so its likely they only check her twice a day. Also, 12-14 hours is not an unusual shift at all for a nurse, so its entirely possible no one noticed him missing.

Question: *spoiler warning* How powerful are the pumpkin bombs? When Peter uses one on Harry at the end of their fight in the lair, it detonates right next to his head, but Harry later comes back with nothing but burn scars on the side of his face. At the end of the film, though, the pumpkin bomb used on Venom completely incinerates Eddie Brock and leaves nothing behind but a small flaming strand of the symbiote.

Chosen answer: 1) There are different kinds of pumpkin bombs, each of varying strength and purpose. Harry would have thrown a weaker one at Peter since they were in the same room. And 2) The symbiote is especially sucseptible to fire. It's one of its two weaknesses. Sound being the other. The bomb Peter threw at the end was the same type that Norman threw at the executives during the World Unity Festival in the first Spider-Man, which is why it skeletonized Eddie.

My Old Friend's New Friend - S4-E1

Question: Why would Carla and Turk come straight back from holiday with their luggage and in their normal clothes? Wouldn't they drop that off first? Carla still has her suitcase while Turn and JD are trying to get together?

Chosen answer: I don't think there is really anything mysterious to them not going straight home and dropping off their clothes. Turk was pretty keen to see JD again and perhaps decided it was easier to catch up with him right then, then go home and come back to the hospital. Maybe going to the hospital was on their way to going back home, no real definite answer.

Question: How come Eddie Brock developed sharp teeth and sort of reptilian eyes when he had the black stuff that turned into a suit, but Peter didn't?

Chosen answer: When Eddie had the suit on, it was "complete". Basically, Venom is what the symbiote wants to be. Because Eddie was filled with rage and hatred, he gladly accepted the suit and this allowed the symbiote to fully take over. Peter Parker gladly accepted the suit as well, but he was not filled with some rage that Eddie was. It would have been a matter of time before the symbiote would have fully taken over Peter.

Question: When Stan Lee makes his appearance and talks to Peter Parker he says to him that "One man can make the difference" The same thing the founder of Knight Industries (Knight himself) says to the young Michael Knight in the first episode of Knight Rider, before he passes away. Is it kind of a tribute to the series?

Chosen answer: Doubtful. This line (or one very similar to it), has been used in many movies and TV shows, and the theme of one person making a difference has been used countless times.

Question: So i saw the movie and the one mistake that popped out on me was the change from day to night at the bridge scene. I would think a movie editor that does that job for life would see that. Why didn't they catch that?

Movieman123

Chosen answer: It's just one of those things. Sort like how you could proof read a term paper over and over and not see any errors, but hand it to someone else and they spot five in the first paragraph. You may as well ask why any other mistake wasn't caught in any other film. They just missed it. Or found it, but didn't have time to fix it.

Question: Was Norman ever really ashamed of Harry (aside from small things like Harry not having a job in the first movie), or was this just the Green Goblin personality trying to manipulate Harry?

Chosen answer: Norman Osborn had a split personality. Norman loved his son, but felt Harry didn't really live up to his full potential. He wasn't ashamed of him, just a little disappointed in him. The Green Goblin was ashamed of Harry. He thought he was weak. So Bad Peter was lying to Harry just to hurt him, whereas the "ghost" of Norman Osborn (Green Goblin persona) was speaking truthfully.

Question: What is the tune that is playing when we first see Billy going into jail?

Chosen answer: It is called "Shipping Up to Boston" by the band The Dropkick Murphys, from their "Warrior's Code" album.

Show generally

Question: Every cast member of Cheers has been on Frasier at one time or another except Kirstie Alley (Rebecca). Does anyone know why she did not appear?

Chosen answer: She did not see herself reprising that role unless Rebecca had made a huge change like becoming a psychiatrist.
