Question: In the policewoman's apartment, the recording she is watching of the puppet goes to live. How did that happen with a recording?

Chosen answer: The camera was plugged into the VCR, so when the tape finished, and the Officer stopped it, it switched to the live feed.

Question: According to the mistakes page, there's a shot of the Death Star hangar in the original theatrical version and a crew member walks in then realises he's in shot and walks back out. I have got the original on DVD and have searched each hangar shot and can't find it. Anyone help?

Chosen answer: It may have been edited out for the DVD release. They clean up things like that on DVD.

Question: Who is the dead person that has Obi's envelope stapled to him?

Chosen answer: It is not a dead body, but a doll.

Question: Why would shoppers need to carry a scanner round a store with them like Kate does early on in the film?

Question: Why does Slevin make Goodcat break his nose?

Chosen answer: When Slevin first tells Lindsey about his time in New York, he told her he was mugged and got his nose broken. We later find out this isn't true. To make his story seem valid, however, Goodcat breaks his nose.

Show generally

Question: I know this is a stupid question, but who is the "Family Guy"? I was told it was Peter, but I'm not so sure?

Chosen answer: It's Peter; he's the main protagonist in the series so naturally the title and theme song are referring to him.

Question: If the witches were being hung outside the house when Winifred's book showed her how to cast the life spell, where did the black flame candle and its instructions come from?

Chosen answer: They were set up, beforehand, just in case. Winnifred knew about the spell, but she didn't memorize the incantation. So she needed the book to see how to cast it.

The Wedding of Bobby Hill - S3-E14

Question: When Luanne tells Bobby that he wasn't in Rad's inner circle and he was just a hanger-on, what does she mean when she says "like AJ"?

Chosen answer: This is a reference to the Backstreet Boys, of whom AJ was the least popular member.

Answer: We're never told, but he was just a friend of Rad.

Question: There is a picture of Wendy's boyfriend where he is standing in front of the roller coaster. That is how Wendy first notices the pictures have a connection to the deaths. Later in the film, Kevin and Wendy come across a picture of Kevin's girlfriend holding a stuffed crocodile and there are blurry lights behind her. What does that picture have to do with how she died?

Answer: The picture looks like she's holding onto the part that comes down to hold you in place, and since roller coasters are fast, that explains why the background is blurry; it's signifying her on the ride, which is where she died.

Answer: It has nothing to do with how Carrie dies, like how the picture of Frankie, when he won the mudflap girl necklace. It had nothing to do with it. Now with Jason's (Wendy's BF) picture she notices how the roller coaster looks like its flying off the tracks.

Plan F: Goodbyeee - S4-E6

Question: Do Blackadder, Baldrick, George and Darling die at the end or is it kind of like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid where we don't really know?

Chosen answer: It's exactly like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. No one knows for absolutely sure, but it is a near-certainty that they did because they were in the first wave charging across no man's land. Like BC and the SK, they stop the scene just as they were rushing in.

The One with Two Parts: Part 1 - S1-E16

Question: What is the name of the toy that Chandler is playing with when his boss bursts in? It's doing my head in.

Chosen answer: I had one of those when I was a kid and it was called a Bumble Ball-not sure if that's the "official" name or just what we called it, though.

Driven - S4-E19

Question: I feel like a scene was missing when I watched this episode. When Delko comes to see if Valera and Boa Vista found anything on the rope, Boa Vista is angry for something that happened between them earlier and says "I was just worried about Marisol", indicating that whatever she is upset about happened in this episode. However I didn't see her earlier in the episode and at no point was Delko talking to her. What event is she referring to here?

Chosen answer: Marisol has been shot, and is dying in the hospital.

Question: Why is there always a midget version of Piangi's character in the operas?

Chosen answer: Midgets were common at the time in that type of shows, where they were used as a comic relief.

Sereenie

Question: What is the length of time in the monster world compared to the human world? Boo is gone overnight in the monster world, so would that mean the human world is longer since Boo's parents aren't worried about their missing child?

Chosen answer: How do you know Boo's parents weren't worried about her? Most of the film takes place after Boo goes into the monster world and the one time when she goes back her room is empty, only meaning her parents weren't there when she returned. It's also impossible to tell whether the monster world's days are shorter or longer than the human world.

Chosen answer: Water.

Cybermoose

It was super cold water - she died because she was freezing (she froze to death).

Question: Does anybody know were I could get the Fruity Oaty Bar (the strange advert that makes River go mental) song, as I really like it but don't know where to find it. Thanks in advance.

Chosen answer: Here it is on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLF5J7rFjhs.

Question: What is the song that Cab Callaway sings to stall the crowd?

Question: Can somebody out there explain the ending for me? It made no sense. Someone told me they believed the mother and daughter, as well as the cop died in the accident and they were trapped in the town. However I don't buy that as the father and the other police found no bodies in the crash.

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: They did not die in the accident. Rather, Alessa's rage and the demon's power caused the town of Silent Hill to fracture into at least three different "dimensions" that we know of (the real world, "fog world" and "other world", plus potentially others). Rose and Sharon are unfortunately stuck inside of one of those alternative realities. The sequel also confirms that they are very much alive.
