Question: Who was Jamie's maid of honor at the wedding? I was reading some discussion on imdb and the comments seem to indicate that it was Belinda since neither she nor Dean's girlfriend were seen sitting in the pews with Dean, Eric et al. One shot does briefly show a blonde girl holding the bouquet of flowers.

Answer: Belinda was Jamie's Maid of Honor.

Question: Why doesn't the Baron like the Baroness and keeps trying to get rid of her? I mean, if it wasn't for her and the law, he wouldn't get all the toys the Toy Maker makes, so why does he not like her?

Answer: He feels like she ruins all of his fun. He is kind of like a child and she is like his mother figure more than a husband and wife.

Question: I saw a question about where the Red Brick road leads to. Someone answered it by saying that it lead to the Sapphire City. Is this true? If so, is there a movie where I would see it?

Answer: While there is a Sapphire City in Oz, there's no evidence to suggest that the Red Brick Road leads there. The Red Brick Road does not appear in any of Baum's books and appears to be entirely an invention for the movie. As such, it's quite likely that it was created purely for aesthetic purposes and no specific destination was ever decided upon, as it bore no relevance to the plot. The Sapphire City appears in only one book in the series (The Giant Horse of Oz) and has never been seen in a movie.

Question: When nomads shoot the person and he is dying, he says something in the ears of Mr. Towns and Mr. Towns reacts with bad expressions. This is never revealed later in the movie. What possibly could he have said in the ears of Mr. Towns?

Answer: Later on in the movie before they get ready to take off, Mr. Towns is asked that same question and his reply was he said "don't crash" to Mr. Towns.

Answer: It is actually Latin, and according to "nameberry.com" it can be translated as "one who has achieved a high place of honor."

Question: When Riddick is in cryostasis on his way to Mecca, he has a vision of a Furyan woman telling him about the 'crime' that has happened in Furya. She proceeds to walk towards Riddick and we get a panoramic view of thousands, or perhaps millions of tombstones, presumably or rather obviously, of Furyans. The question is: Who went to Furya and buried all those dead Furyans? Who bothered to bury each one and put a tombstone on each dead body? Did Furya's neighboring planet send an expedition to Furya so they could bury the entire population of Furya? Kind of pointless, don't you think? Did they bring with them all those tombstones or were they just quarried from a nearby mine?

Answer: Because is a vision, I believe that the tombstones were added just to state the obvious about Furyans, that they are dead.

Anastasios Anastasatos

Chosen answer: It's called "Cold Out There" by Jon Hopkins.

Voyage of the Damned - S3-E16

Question: I just wanted to check before I post it as a mistake. When Morvin and Foon are fixing the Host, Foon says she spent 5000 credits on phone calls and that they'll never be able to pay it off. At the end of the episode, the Doctor tells Mr. Copper that he has 50,000,056 credits on his card which he says is equal to £1,000,000. According to this calculation, the 5000 credits that Foon spent, divided by 50.000056 = £99.999888. Surely even though they work on a milk market they'd be able to pay that off easily, wouldn't they

Professor Lazarus

Chosen answer: Depends on how much money they made at the market. For some people, a £99 expense WOULD be too much to pay off.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: Was the storyline with Brenda based on actual or similar events of the real Frank Jr's life, or was it just added to show that Frank could never commit to a relationship while he was on the run, whether he wanted to or not?

Answer: The character of Brenda was based loosely on a stewardess he dated for a short time and who encouraged him to become a lawyer (he told her he went to Harvard Law School). They were never engaged.

LorgSkyegon

Question: When the woman is talking to her daughter on her cell phone, we hear the woman on the other end of the line say something like, "I see in calculus". Does this have any deeper meaning in the movie? Most people we see that are affected act strange, but none talk of seeing things.

Answer: In the movie the plants are releasing chemicals into the air that sends a self destruct sequence to the humans. Some plants have hallucinogenic capabilities. It is possible that the girl who sees in calculus had been the victim of just such a plant causing her to see things that aren't really there.

oddy knocky

Question: Why is it in one scene revealed that the headless horsemen is just a normal guy? That doesn't fit into the plot.

Answer: Try watching a bit more closely. The "guy" in question is Bron, Katrina's would-be suitor, who is pretending to be the headless horseman to make fun of Crane. They're playing a joke on him, nothing more than that.

Tailkinker Premium member

Answer: The scene happens to be a play on a common theory of how, in the original Legend of Sleepy Hollow, that Brom was pretending to be the Headless Horseman in order to scare Ichabod Crane away from Sleepy Hollow.

Question: I don't understand the connection between "the section" and the human trafficking/child porn network that was mentioned throughout the films. It is my understanding that the section was simply a secret covenant that leaks political secrets. But, some members seem to be involved in human trafficking and child porn (and where sexual predators and sadists themselves) but I don't see what part the section had in it. Can someone explain?

lionhead

Chosen answer: The section had no direct involvement in human trafficking, but were willing to overlook Zala's activities in it because he had been useful to them and they wanted to keep their relationship with him secret. As was mentioned, the authorities took little interest in pursuing this type of crime because the victims are generally young women who have little or no family ties or other connections and they are often written off as willing prostitutes. They are simply considered too unimportant to be bothered with.

Show generally

Question: I have noticed more than one female character (Asajj Ventress and, later in the show, Ahsoka Tano) wearing pieces of cloth on their belts that hang between their legs. I have seen this on females in other shows/movies/games as well. Does it serve some purpose or is it simply decorative?

Answer: This is a compromise between flirty and modest showing skin on the side of the leg, while hiding the crotch/rear area. This style exists only in fiction because in real life, the cloth would get in the way and it would be easier to either wear shorts, remove the cloth, or both.

Question: Why did the Jackal tell Koslova how she is going to die?

Answer: He's sadistic, and it's a way to torment her during her final moments.

Question: What did VOX mean when he said that to find the Morlocks' lair, that Alexander would have to follow the breathing?

Answer: He's referring to the sound that the Morlocks' machinery makes from underground.

Answer: Why would she? There was no motivation for her to do so.

Brad Premium member

Answer: I was wondering this too - surely on Rapunzel's first birthday Mother Gothel would have noticed the fuss the King and Queen made and decided to move it by a few weeks next time.

Question: The Jackal shot Koslova just one time. Why do we see two bullet wounds on her shirt?

Answer: It's not known if it's a bullet wound or just blood that somehow was transferred to that part of her shirt. She was bleeding heavily and moving around quite a bit when she is first shot.

Question: Even though she was more focused on trying to transform her mother back into a human, is it possible Merida was able to apply the same magic to her brothers? If so, then how?

Answer: By reconciling the rift with her mother, the brothers (who were under the same spell) were transformed back when Elinor was.

Question: When Hobbs realizes that Dom and Brian left him with an empty vault, Hobbs has a flashback of Tego and Rico loading the real vault onto a truck. My question: was that really a flashback (did he really see it take place and forget?) or was it like Dom's image of Letty's death when he and Mia are at the crash site in Fast Four and not 100% accurate, since he didn't know what Letty's killer looked like yet?

Answer: Hobbs doesn't see that scene, though he probably does guess part of what happened - ie. that they swapped the vaults. The scene is played as a reveal for us, the audience, to show us how the vault that is supposed to be full of money is now suddenly empty.

roboc

Question: While the triplets distract Fergus and the lords with the dead frog they use to form a bear shadow, one of them also roars into a pot to imitate a bear. It that a reference to "A Bug's Life" (1998) when Dot screeches like a bird into a horn while she, Flick, and the girl scout ants fly the fake bird?

Answer: No, it's just a common method for increasing the volume of your voice.
