Question: Why make a whole adult just to give birth to a baby? Why not just make a baby in the first place? We know they can adjust the clones' age. Come to that, why was Lima killed right after she gave birth? Her body would still be fine for organs and parts should her sponsor need them.

Daria Sigma

Chosen answer: The company claims to have the ablity to create organs for their clients. They most likely claimed that they can create babies too. They did not want anyone to know that they are allowing the clones to "live" let alone one to carry a baby. Lima was killed becuase they wanted to conceal this secret. Besides, if their client wants new organs, I guess they'll make her pay for another insurance policy.

Show generally

Question: The show's theme song is played at the start of each episode. For the life of me, I cannot understand the first line. "...back to the past, Samurai Jack." What is that first line of that theme?

Kimberly Klaus

Chosen answer: Gotta get back, back to the past...

Question: When Phil and the two locals are driving on the railroad tracks, they are closely followed by a police unit. Phil drives off the tracks at a crossing where the tracks became level with the street surface. How did the police car get out from in front of the train?

scwilliam

Chosen answer: It was never explained in the film but there could be two possible explanations. One is the police car never got off the tracks in time and was hit by the train. Another is the car managed to get off the tracks in time despite the difficulty of getting off a railroad track so quickly. Up to the viewer to decide.

Gavin Jackson

Answer: We know the police car survived because unit 2 is the car that followed them onto the tracks, and unit 2 is also one of the cars present when they are stopped (though it came from the wrong direction). The movie doesn't explain how the car survived so it is left to the viewer's imagination.

Question: Why does the enchanted ceiling in the Great Hall begin acting weird when Mad Eye Moody (Crouch) makes his entrance during the beginning-of-the-year feast?

raywest

Chosen answer: The ceiling does not really start acting weirdly when Moody enters. The ceiling is enchanted to portray whatever the outside sky is doing, and, as it is stormy outside, it is therefore stormy on the ceiling. It is just a coincidence that just as Moody enters, there is a lightning strike, and he thinks that it is a curse or some other magic spell.

mandy gasson

Addendum: in the book, there's a big storm going on (outside), and Mad-Eye does not interact with the ceiling as he does in the movie. The lightning at the same time he comes in is a coincidence.

Question: Does anyone know what song Harry, Fred, George and Ginny were singing to Ron about Viktor Krum at the Quidditch World Cup and where I can find it to listen to? Thanks.

Chosen answer: The song is not included on the soundtrack. It sounds like they are making up words to the tune of My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean. You wont be able to find it anywhere.

Question: What is meant by "We don't need no stinking baggers" line in the movie?

Spaceboy_007

Chosen answer: It's making fun of "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!" which is an often referenced 'quote' from "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (Actually, the real line is "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges.", but that's the way people say it.)

Myridon

Question: What was the treasure? Because Casper says its just his baseball bat and glove, but then what does the note at the beginning mean that Carrigan and Dibbs find when the deed is thrown in the fire? Because it talks of treasure but its really only a baseball.

Chosen answer: It was not Casper (now the ghost of a 12 yr old boy) who wrote that there was a hidden treasure at Whipstaff Manor. It was Casper's father, Mr. Mcfadden. The treasure in the box is an autographed baseball which used to belong to Casper, before he got sick and died. Mr. McFadden missed his young son Casper, so he invented a machine that can bring a ghost back to life. He considered Casper's baseball a treasure, because to him it is the greatest treasure there is - the baseball that belonged to his 12 yr old son before he died.

Super Grover

Show generally

Question: For the season five episode "Grave Danger". In the beginning of the show there is a plot-line about twins being shot to death. They make quite the point out of it. Why is this important, does it refer to a previous episode or set up for a following? I don't get it.

Chosen answer: It doesn't refer to anything specific, just office chatter. Quentin Tarantino has a lot of pointless time-fillers in the episode, and this is one example.

CocoCami

Question: After the second task Harry has a reddish mark on his face and down his neck. Anyone have any idea what this could be?

Chosen answer: They are from the attack by the grindylows just before Harry left the Black Lake. Fleur Delacour has the same type of marks on her neck and shoulders when she goes to help Gabrielle up onto the platform.

Addreamy

Question: Why would Daryl Hannah not have used her cell phone to call for help in Bud's trailer after her eye was pulled out?

Chosen answer: There is nothing to say this didn't happen. The last we see or hear from Hannah's character is when Uma Thurman leaves the trailer. At the time Thurman leaves Hannah's character she is obviously still in considerable pain and what she did after this is open to debate.

Lummie

Show generally

Question: I have seen online that lots of people are saying that the theme song is supposed to have a sequence where the plane lands and that Will runs from someone that looks like a cop, yet I have seen the extended opening and this is not in it. Is that sequence a lie of is it part of the song, but not of the opening credits?

Chosen answer: It is part of the song and not the opening credits.

Dedderbot

Question: What was the first song that played in the credits?

Chosen answer: Hi there, can't give you a name as it's been a long long time since I watched Cabin Fever. However, amazon.com has the listing for the soundtrack and you can listen to samples so hopefully it will help you find what you are looking for - http://www.amazon.com/Cabin-Fever-Various-Artists/dp/samples/B0000C3ICN/ref=dp_tracks_all_1/103-5216138-1263057#disc_1

Love Hurts - S1-E20

Question: I'm not sure if this is the right episode. My question comes from the episode about the girl with cancer and the brain tumor(recent episode) What is the song that House is listening to before and after the others come into the showers to listen to the heartbeat?

Chosen answer: "Nessun Dorma" from Giacomo Puccini's "Turandot". The episode was "Autopsy".

Question: There's a guy in the bleachers with Gordon's wife during a championship game. He looks a lot like David Hasselhoff, but it's not. I was wondering if anyone knew who it was.

Chosen answer: It is David Hasselhoff. He played the coach of the German dodgeball team, but when his team lost he hooked up with Gordon's wife.

Question: Why is Tom Hanks uncredited for his role in the movie?

Chosen answer: He was in a very small part of the movie and at the time he had already become quite a famous star. If his name were attatched to it without being uncredited, he would have had top billing. He probably decided to remove his name from the movie so the younger actors could receive more attention. The same type of thing happens in quite a few movies I can think of.

Question: What would have happened if Seth had successfully made the teleportation with Ronnie?

Chosen answer: Actually, if the teleportation had followed through, then four bodies would have merged into one: Ronnie, Seth, Fly, Baby. Remember, Ronnie was pregnant.

William Bergquist

Question: The killer arrives at the farm in an old rusty truck which Maria stows away in with the captive Alex. Then from the gas station she follows the truck in the murdered station attendant's car, and both vehicles end up at the scene of the final confrontation. Yet at the end we learn that Maria is actually the killer and has insanely hallucinated virtually the entire movie. Can anyone offer any explanation of where that big truck came from in the first place and what the truth is about which vehicles were really present at the end and how exactly Maria and Alex arrive at the scene of their final confrontation?

Chosen answer: It is impossible to know which vehicles were actually used, or even what really happened throughout the movie. The plot twist at the end of this film, while certainly surprising, was not very thoroughly planned out. It's almost as if the writer decided at the last minute to add it for no better reason than he couldn't think of a way to end the movie.

Phixius

Question: What's the point of the whole "Aloe Vera" thing when they're buying the vans? I mean, why would they so desperately need to save a few hundred dollars in such a complex and expensive scheme? They made sure that the dealer would remember those guys that bought two white vans just days prior to the robbery. One would assume that they would want to keep a low profile. Not to mention, I doubt that a car dealer would lower the price just because the guy squeezes his hand.

Chosen answer: It was not to lower the price (although that was a fringe benefit), but rather to intimidate the dealer into letting them pay cash for the vans. Hence, no trace. It was not the hand-squeezing that convinced the dealer, it was the tacit promise of further discomfort if he did not give them a "better deal."

Question: During the striptease scene in the tent with Paris Hilton and Robert Richard, what is the name of the song playing in the background?

Chosen answer: The name of the song is Brothers Conti - Automatic.
