Beneath the Surface - S4-E10

Question: Why couldn't Calder and his people do the shoveling themselves? Were they lazy?

Question: During the slapping, what did George mean when he said send him up to the front?

Answer: "The front" means the front line, i.e., where the enemy is being engaged. He's saying that since the soldier isn't physically injured, he should be fighting, not (as Patton sees it) being a coward and shirking his duty.

Answer: He meant that he intended to send the soldier back to his unit where the main fighting with the enemy is taking place. This is referred to as "the front."

Question: What was the name of the fake person that Andy helped Warden Norton create?

Answer: Randall Stephens. And strictly speaking, he didn't "help" Norton create the fake person...he did it on his own initiative, to launder Norton's ill-gotten gains. If Norton knew about Randall Stephens at all, he likely didn't understand the purpose but trusted that Andy was doing it for his (Norton's) own good.

Question: Is it known what Mundungus was selling that man in diagon alley?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: No, it is not known what he was selling, only that it was likely some kind of an illegal or unsavory business transaction.

Question: Why did Brooks want to make his players hate him?

Answer: Since they all came from different, sometimes rival, universities, and thus had no commonality, he wanted to give them someone to dislike together, instead of fighting with one another. If they could all bond over what a bastard Brooks was, they'd come together faster as a team and have a chance of winning.

Question: How come Harry and Peter stopped living together?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: While it's never mentioned in the film, the most likely explanation is that Harry, as a rich kid, grew tired of "slumming it" and decided to move back into his mansion.

Jason Hoffman

Question: Why was the camel left with the 2 murdered men?

Answer: It is stated very plainly that the Arabs left the camel behind because it was lame. This was a dramatic device to demonstrate the Arabs' ruthlessness: They murdered two human beings in cold blood, but allowed a lame camel to live. Note that the camel scene appears in the 1965 film, but not at all in the 2004 film.

Charles Austin Miller

Answer: It's unknown why they left the camel there.

Question: What is the purpose of the initial TV montage?

Answer: To me it never looked like a montage. It was just someone flipping through the channels (channel surfing) until they got to "TV Time" where they stayed to watch the commercial for the PleasanTVille marathon. People (especially before DVRs) sometimes just flip through the channels looking for something to watch, especially if you don't know what's playing on each channel.

Question: How many drones can a puddle jumper hold?

Question: Why did Ginny and Dean split up?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It was never a serious relationship. Ginny had always had a crush on Harry and only started dating Dean when she thought Harry would never be interested in her. Dean and Ginny got on well at first, but Ginny was always defensive if any other student, including Dean, was in any way critical of Harry. Dean, to keep the relationship going, worked hard to always appease Ginny and stay on her good side. Unfortunately, this tactic annoyed Ginny, and later led to her breaking up with Dean.

Dan23

Answer: He's coming back from his vacation in Philadelphia.

Question: While there were various characters being held in a sort of "suspended animation" entwined in the "canker man's" roots/webs, only one was set free (the foster care agent), why? (01:20:35 - 01:24:25)

Question: Who is the guy sitting alone on a picnic table in the school courtyard while the girls are singing "Summer Nights"?

Answer: This man is the high school's kitchen staff. He's wearing a blue shirt, beige trousers, and a white apron. All during this lunch scene we can see him in the background in a few shots, while he's collecting students' trays, etc., even before they start singing "Summer Nights." (00:11:15).

Super Grover Premium member

Thank you SO much for this answer! I have recently gone back and looked at the scene, and sure enough - he's a cafeteria worker. What he's doing sitting on the table in the "thinker" pose at the end of "Summer Nights" is another question, altogether. But at least you've answered my question as to who the heck is.

Michael Albert

Answer: The guy on the table that was just at looking out at the end of "Summer Nights" was John Travolta's brother he was just an extra.

Travolta has 2 older brothers, Sam and Joey, who are also actors and have been involved in the industry. The guy sitting on the table near the end of the song is neither Sam nor Joey.

Answer: I think a school teacher.

Answer: Danny.

Can't be Danny since he was also singing the same song on the bleachers with the guys.

Question: When Sydney had to walk across the ladder she had to take out her phone to video tape it from her point of view. Why wouldn't she just give the phone to someone in the window to video tape it for her?

Answer: Having to video tape it herself while traversing the ladder makes the task more difficult to perform, thus heightening the risk and suspense.
