Question: What are the other inmates on death row for?

Chosen answer: Wild Bill is condemned for murdering people during a robbery. John is there for the twin girls. In the book, Arlen Bitterbuck was there for murdering a man over a pair of boots and Del was there for arson, rape and murder.

Question: I didn't completely understand when V asks for Evey's help and says he needs someone with theatrical abilities. Then it shows the scene where Evey comes in as the woman for the priest. When she is warning him about V, is she acting or is she really trying to get help from him? I figured it was real because she didn't go back to V, she went to Gordon's house.

Chosen answer: The "acting ability" V needed was to convince the priest that she was there "for" him. The confession and warning were real and not planned by V. That's why he abducts her later, so she'll lose her fear and won't be tempted to do something like that again.

Question: Why do the characters in this show, and other animated shows, always wear the same clothes and have just a few different outfits (ex: Marge's regular green dress and her Sunday dress)? Wouldn't most fans be able to recognize the characters even if they did wear different clothes in each episode?

Chosen answer: They do this to make it easier to draw the thousands of cells they need to make a cartoon.

Question: In one episode, Tim's mother says that she raised five boys. Three of those are Tim, Jeff, and Marty, but what do we know about the other two? There's another episode where Randy mentions his uncle that doesn't talk to their family anymore.

Chosen answer: Tim's other brothers are named Rick and Steve. They never appeared on the show, and were only mentioned in passing.

Question: There's a scene in this movie that I've never understood. When Ron Kovic is in the VA hospital, there's one scene where he wakes up in the middle of the night, and looks up and sees something, and screams. What did he see that made him scream?

Chosen answer: He doesn't see anything. He hears his blood dripping back into the makeshift machine the doctors have set up and realizes it isn't working properly. In the previous scene he was told that if they couldn't get the machine to work, he would never walk again.

Question: How can Flanders afford stuff like a huge boat and a motorhome if he doesn't make a lot of money?

Chosen answer: From time to time he has explained his above average income has come from a variety of reasons. First of all he has mentioned from time to time of other business ventures he has been involved. At one time he was doing advertisements when he shaved his moustache and another he was trading in religious website store. Secondly the Leftorium that he runs has had his highs and lows which would explain why he can sometimes afford more expensive items. Thirdly he seems to be quite clever when it comes to saving and business. For example he showed Homer about the Mega Savers course that showed about how to buy more expensive items at lower prices.

Question: So what was so important about those specific 1000 souls in the contract?

Chosen answer: It wasn't the souls themselves, it was the fact that there were so many on a single contract. By stealing it, the ghost rider robbed Mephistopholes of not one, but one-*thousand* souls.

Question: I'm confused about the ending. Aquamarine didn't find romantic love, but she did find friendship love with Claire and Hailey. However, doesn't Aquamarine's father already believe in family or friendship love? He obviously cares about Aquamarine, since he was angry when she ran away, and he and her mother named her after a "rare and precious gemstone".

Chosen answer: Many people treat their children like possessions. You would be angry if your TV disappeared, but that doesn't mean that you love it like it was your child.

Pilot (2) - S1-E2

Question: We know that Cindy the flight attendant ends up with the "tailies." It took about a minute or two for the plane to break apart from the first time turbulence hit. The bathroom was near the front of the plane. We know this because when Charlie went with Jack and Kate to look for the cockpit, the bathroom was not very far away. How was she able to reach the back of the plane so quickly after pounding on the lavatory door when Charlie was snorting his heroine when the really bad turbulence hit?

Chosen answer: She could have lost her balance and thrown to the floor when the plane was broken apart she was probably sucked into the tail.

Question: Was the part at the camp actually filmed at the actual camp?

Chosen answer: No, it wasn't.

Question: When Tracy finds her mom's boyfriend's clothes in the laundry, what is she talking about when she says that her mom promised her and Mason something?

Chosen answer: Her mom had promised that her boyfriend was only coming for dinner and was not going to stay with them anymore, and when Tracy found his clothes in the laundry, that shows that he stayed the night and that she had broken her promise.

Question: In early episodes, why did Topanga call her parents by their first names?

Chosen answer: That was what I hope was only a phase of the way things were in California at that time. Many kids who had parents who liked to be modern and be friends more than parents to their kids had them call them by their first names.

New this month Answer: This was part of Topanga's weird phase. She specifically mentions in one episode that addressing her father as "Dad" would make it hard to tell him apart from the other dads in the world.

Question: In the West Wing, the Beast covers the rose and says "Do you realize what you could have done?" to Belle. What would have happened if she had touched the rose?

Chosen answer: She could have inadvertently knocked more petals off, giving the beast less time to break his curse.

Question: Has any reason ever been given for Gambit's absence from all the X-men movies? He's an interesting and cool character and is a fan favorite, so why leave him out?

Chosen answer: They actually were going to put in a quick scene in X2 that showed Gambit reacting when Jason is targetting all of the mutants, and if you look on the screen of the computer when Mystique is in Stryker's office, figuring out where Magneto is being held, you can see Gambit's real name flash on screen. But why he didn't appear can simply be summed up with "It just didn't happen." They seem to use the mutants that help out the story that they are trying to tell, and Gambit doesn't really stand out in a number of ways. In ability, he's quite similar to Cyclops and in attitude, he's very much like Wolverine.

Question: Right before Kiddo is accepted under Pai Mei, she asks when she will see Bill again. Bill's response to the question is it's the title to his favorite 70s soul song. What song is he refering to?

Chosen answer: It wasn't his response. She says "When will I see you again?" - He is saying that "When Will I See You Again" is the name of his favorite 70's soul song, not that the answer to her question is his favorite song. Confusing at first, I know.

Question: In this episode we see the television show with the house looking very similar. Is this the real Bundy set redecorated, and when we see the porch and living room, is this the same set? Or was this a custom set specifically for this scene/episode?

Chosen answer: Same set, producers often do this to save money. It can even transcend shows and movies; for example most film companies only have one airplane fuselage set, so the plane in Die Hard 2 is the same as the plane in Planes, Trains and Automobiles is same as the plane in Airplane. Just redecorated a bit.
