The One With Ross's Wedding, part 1 - S4-E23

Question: They mention numerous times throughout the series that Phoebe's mother killed herself. Did they ever mention how?

Chosen answer: In the episode where they pack for London and Monica realises that saying check is weird. Phoebe says something like "My mom used to stick her head in the oven. Well, just the one time."

Answer: She also mentions in a song about a snow man that her mum died in the kitchen.

Question: What happens to Nick? We never see him after the island.

Chosen answer: He is not mentioned again. We can only assume that he is off doing some sort of Greenpeace-like thing.

Question: Could someone please tell me how Will planned to get out of the dice game should he have lost without his father's help? Maybe I'm missing something but the whole thing seemed poorly thought out. I mean he goes into the game betting his eternal service against the key just to find out where the key is? If he was trapped on the ship forever, getting the key to Jack or anyone would be impossible so that would be no good. Again my main question is, how was Will planning to get out of the game? Could you also point out any points in his plan should I have forgotten to list them?

Chosen answer: All he needed was to find out the where the key was. If he found it, and unlocked the box with it, then he (and Jack) would be free. Remember, they had a few days before Davey Jones called in the debts, so he wouldn't have been enslaved right away.

Question: Does Michael Rosenbaum actually have hair in real life because in many parts of the series Lex Luthor seems to have a grey shade to his head indicating that he has shaved his hair really really finely, so does he have hair and does he therefore have his hair shaved off before filming?

Chosen answer: He does have hair in real life.

Question: Mike greets the slug-like janitor with the words, "Cheloubi, baby." Have you any idea who Cheloubi is or was ?

Chosen answer: Cheloubi is the name of the slug like janitor.

Question: Why were the cheating wife and her lover not arrested for adultery? Last time I checked, that was a crime in the United States.

Chosen answer: Currently there are some US states where adultery is still a crime, but they don't really prosecute people for that any more. Plus this is set in the future, so the laws could easily have changed.

Question: My friend an I have been having an argument. Whose hand hits the car window in the sex scene?

Chosen answer: Although Leonardo DiCaprio has some femine looking hands for a guy, this is Rose's hand hitting the window and sliding down. Pay attention to the fingernails, and you will notice it is a woman's hand.

Question: Does the watch Winthorpe wants to sell really exist or is it a made up brand? There seems to be no information about it on the net.

Chosen answer: It's a made-up brand, named after La Rochefoucauld, a 15th century French writer. An April fool's article exists online claiming the watch has been redesigned for the 21st century.

Question: Why do Gaston and his mob proceed to enter the castle, when it is clear from the looks on their faces that they are a little confused and suspicious as to why a bunch of objects just happen to be lining the entrance hall?

Chosen answer: Because they're there for the beast. They aren't just going to turn back simply because some stuff was out of place.

Dead Man Dating - S1-E4

Question: Does anybody know the name of the song that is playing when Mark is giving the recipes to Piper?

Chosen answer: "Hush, Hush, Hush" Paula Cole.

Question: After the fire on the ship, and everyone gets out, Benny yells to O'Connell that he has all the horses. O'Connell yells back, "You're on the wrong side of the river." Benny makes a big stink about all that. My question is why? Surely it would not be so hard to cross a river.

Chosen answer: Depends very much on the size of the river. The Nile at that point is pretty wide and deep, which doesn't make it particularly easy to cross. Benny and his cohorts would need to find a ferry or bridge to get across, which would take time. Even without horses, that gives O'Connell's group a considerable head start.

Question: In the Panama scene, what do the boys mean by "thought they were in Panama"?

Chosen answer: They thought they were in the country "Panama" but they were, in fact, not.

Question: Why is Gordon equated so often with V? They each have secret chambers full of art, they make the same eggs and some scenes are similarly structured. Are we supposed to think Gordon is V for a while?

Chosen answer: No. It may be for no other reason than to set up the joke Gordon makes about being V. Or it could, more likely, be to make it seem less like V is alone in his views on society.

Question: During the credits, we see Mater finds his hood, saying he hadn't seen it for 20 years, and when he puts it on, he talks like a human would if they pinched their nose shut. Why is this? All other cars have hoods and talk fine with them. Certainly Mater's "nose" wouldn't just reject the hood from being separated for that long. Could someone explain this because it makes no sense to me.

Chosen answer: The movie is implying that the "pinched nose" voice is his real voice, and that the voice we hear throughout the film is what he sounds like without a hood. It's more of an inside joke than anything, since Larry the Cable Guy voiced Mater for the film. To get to hear him speak in a normal tone of voice of sorts is what makes this so funny, since his southern drawl is largely exaggerated for his stand-up performances, and he is capable of talking without it, as heard in the movie.

Question: To anyone who's seen the Broadway musical: are the Beast and the Prince played by two different people? It seems that it would be difficult to execute the transformation scene that quickly on stage.

Chosen answer: SPOILER ALERT. DO NOT READ THIS ANSWER IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW. It is the same actor. Not to spoil the magic, but they figure out a way to have the Beast onstage and in costume, send him into the air and have the transformation done in the blink of an eye. The way they do it, they couldn't change the actor if they wanted to. He never disappears from view. One thing to be aware of, though, is that during the fight with Gaston, you don't get a really good look at the Beast. That's because his makeup is already off. Can't really say more than that, as I do not know the tricks of the trade. The effect is astonishing.

Question: Does anyone know what song was used in the adverts for this movie? All I know is that it's Missy Elliot, it samples that song "Jump On It", and she says something akin to "Wanna pull my head, break my back." Anyhow, I like the song but I can't figure out what it is.

Chosen answer: It's called We Run This by Missy Elliot.
