Question: When Marty is playing the guitar after he get fired in the future, Jennifer is trying to sneak out and while he's playing, she stops and turns around to look at Marty. Why does she do this? It made no sense, she could have been caught. Was he playing their "special" song or something?

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: It is because Marty used to be a very good guitar player. After his accident, when he broke his hand, he couldn't play very well anymore. Jennifer stops in shock that he is playing so horribly now. She is used to him playing the guitar greatly.

The Snuke - S11-E4

Question: In the episode 1009 Mystery of the Urinal Deuce we get to know that Cartman believes 9/11 was a conspiracy. At the end, Stan and Kyle got to know the real truth, but Cartman didn't. Why would he think that new guy is a terrorist, if he believes that 9/11 was a conspiracy by the U.S. government?

A Demon Premium member

Chosen answer: Cartman is paranoid. Just because he believes 9/11 was a government conspiracy doesn't mean he doesn't also suspect everyone else.

Question: Delia Surridge tells V that she didn't know what the virus was going to do. How could she not have known? She created the virus and was administering it to people and seeing what it did.

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: She states outright that she was aware she was developing a biological weapon, she just didn't know whom they were going to use it against.

Question: Why isn't V killed by the virus administered to him at Larkhill?

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: He has a natural immunity to it.

Phixius Premium member

Answer: He was tested on but not with a virus. They achieved what they intended and that was to crate a blank slate super soldier! To quote the movie "the subject remembered nothing of who he was". But he remembered the torture that got him there and had the biography to inspire his hatred. The virus was created from Vs blood because of his reactions to the virus.

Chosen answer: It means kill the white man.

Question: Was the TV movie "Exiled" set in real time? I caught the last half hour of it on TV, and at one point, Logan makes a reference to an event from "three years ago"; the film was aired in 1998, and 1995 was Chris Noth's last season on the show.

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: Yes, it was set roughly three years after the incident that had Logan "exiled".

Question: What was the point of the scientist releasing the clone Alices and then putting them through the test to have them killed? Did they explain this and I missed it or what?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: The reason that the cloned alices were put through the tests was their attempt to get a "perfect" clone of her. They knew that Alice was the key to taking back the zombie infestation, so they were trying to get the "perfect" clone. The perfect clone would have all of her memories and reactions, so they put the clones through that testing facility. If she made it out alive, then she was the perfect clone. If she didn't, then it was back to the drawing board.

Nick Bylsma

Question: When Karl is cutting the phone lines with the chainsaw, what is his brother yelling at him in German?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: He is shouting "No, no, I'm not finished here!" as presumably if the lines are cut before he's finished rerouting them (or whatever exactly he's doing) an alarm or similar will be tripped.

Question: What would happen if Aragorn stabbed one of the Dead soldiers with Anduril?

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: Instead of passing on they would cease to exist.

Question: Is there ANY chance of them making a film based on the trailer Titanic Two the Surface? It seems like a really good idea for a sequel.

Chosen answer: None whatsoever. While the trailer's a clever example of an editing job, the actual concept is absurd to a truly spectacular degree, and would undoubtedly be seen as a completely shameless cash-in on the original, to the extent where even studio executives might well balk at the idea.

Question: Donald Sutherland was in the Buffy movie, and Kristine Sutherland is in the TV series as Joyce. Was it intentional or just coincidence that two Sutherlands are involved in the Buffy world?

Chosen answer: They are not related so put this down to just coincidence. Although Kristine Sutherland (real name Kristine Young) had a cat named Donald, after Donald Sutherland, and chose the stage name Sutherland after her cat, so there's a tenuous connection.

The Substitute Spanish Prisoner - S6-E2

Question: Where does the title of this episode come from? It seems like "The Substitute Spanish Prisoner" would actually be better for the episode where Peggy accidentally sneaks a Mexican girl back into America during a field trip, and is later arrested in Mexico.

Chosen answer: The title comes from a con trick that is similar to the scam emails from people claiming to represent wealthy Nigerians. (For more information on this click here.) Being that much of the episode revolves around a con man and conning the title seems more suitable than to the episode Peggy accidentally kidnaps the Mexican girl Lupe.

Question: How did Luke get off the Death Star before it exploded? We never actually see it happen in the movie, or do we?

Chosen answer: He piloted a shuttle out of the hanger. There is a quick shot of him in the cockpit and the shuttle leaving the hangar, which is followed immediately by an explosion.

Question: How did Luke learn to construct a new light saber (after losing his old one in the fight with Darth Vader)? Yoda seems like the only person who could have taught him, but Luke hasn't been back to see him since he lost his old one (Luke's line to Artoo about "keeping a promise to an old friend" makes it clear that this is the case). Was it part of their earlier training on Dagobah?

Chosen answer: According to Expanded Universe materials, Luke constructed his new lightsabre using instructions and materials that he found hidden in Obi-Wan Kenobi's abandoned dwelling on Tatooine.

Question: On the start around series 3 Chandler jumps into Joey's arms. It's about a stalker Joey has got. What is the name of the episode?

A Demon Premium member

Chosen answer: This was, "The One After the Superbowl," a two-part episode. Brooke Shields guest starred as Erika Ford, a crazed fan of Joey's character on "Days of our Lives." She stalked him, believing Joey really was the doctor he played on the show.

Question: I've heard that Hans Zimmer's score for this film is heavily inspired by Mozart, to the point where some call it a "rewrite". Which one of Mozart's pieces is he alleged to have drawn inspiration from?

Chosen answer: Some bits of his score bear a small resemblance to a choral piece called "Ave Verum Corpus", but to suggest that it's a full-scale rip-off is a serious exaggeration.

Question: Why do some think that Darth Plagueis or Darth Sidious created Anakin? I don't see why Plagueis would bother training Sidious, or why Sidious would train Maul, if either of them could use the midi-chlorians make a very strong apprentice. Also, Shmi is a poor slave living in a small town in Tattooine, so why would either Plagueis or Sidious have any reason to be interested in her?

Chosen answer: Because while they could use the midi-chlorians to create a powerful apprentice, they can't use them to grow that apprentice to adulthood in the blink of an eye. Sidious needs an apprentice to do his bidding and advance his agenda in the meantime; he's not going to sit there twiddling his thumbs while he waits for Anakin to grow up. As far as choosing Shmi Skywalker, they need to choose a host mother who's not going to come to the attention of the Jedi. If the Jedi pick up on Anakin shortly after his birth, then they will simply take him away and raise him from scratch, which would ruin him for Sidious' purposes. They need Anakin to grow up a bit, develop attachments that can be manipulated to turn him to the Dark Side, so picking a humble slave on an out-of-the-way world is a perfect choice.

Question: On the DVD main menu, does anyone know what song is playing? And is it on the album?

Chosen answer: The artist is "Genuine Childs", the song is just called "The Bourne Identity DVD menu music score". It's not on the Bourne album, but you can find it on their soundcloud page: soundcloud.com/genuinechilds.

Bishop73

Question: Is this supposed to be Albert Wesker in the film? IMDB lists him as Albert, but I'm fairly certain I saw the part listed as Sherman Wesker in the film.

Chosen answer: You have likely confused "Sherman Wesker" with "Chairman Wesker" which he is referred to in the film.
