...Must Come to an End (2) - S6-E24

Question: The ending scene of the Series Finale shows Joey and Pacey apparently living together in a high-rise apartment. The TV looks the same as her NYC apartment, and there is a beautiful window view of lighted high-rise buildings and a harbor or bay. The question is - is this Boston or NYC? Are they living in her previous NYC apartment, or did they find a new place together in nearby Boston? It looked to me more like Boston, but Pacey had just started his restaurant business in Capeside and that is an hour away. Where are they living at the end of the series? It was vague to me.

Chosen answer: It's the same apartment Joey had in NYC. Comparing it to the beginning of the Finale; you can tell it's exactly the same location, furnishings, Plasma TV etc. Apparently Chris was only living with her at HER apartment, and now Pacey has taken his place at the end. I guess this implies Pacey successfully started his own restaurant business in NYC as he had dreamed, to be with Joey.

Lisa the Vegetarian - S7-E5

Question: Why do Paul and Linda have blue and brown eyes when all the other characters have black?

Chosen answer: More than likely because they had blue and brown eyes, respectively, in real life.

Question: Why didn't Professor Broom want Hellboy to know that he was dying of cancer?

Chosen answer: Most normal fathers would hardly be jumping with joy at the prospect of telling their son such a fact, and Hellboy and the Professor have a slightly more unique relationship than most fathers have with their sons. The Professor is the only family he's ever had.

Question: On the second DVD for Special Features, how do you buy your owl in Eeylops? The narrator tells you to pick an owl and that you'll need it for communication. How do you buy it? I've clicked on all three of them and nothing happened. None of my friends can figure it out either.

Chosen answer: Those owls are not essential. Just follow these instructions to view the deleted scenes: 1) In the Main Menu click the Owl - Diagon Alley. 2) To enter, choose the bricks in clockwise order from the left. If you make 4 mistakes, it will open anyway. 3) Once in Diagon Alley, hit the Key, located at the bottom of the Gringotts sign. 4) Click on the Coins. Then hit the Arrow to go back to Diagon Alley. 5) Click on the Ollivanders sign. 6) Pick a Wand Box, until the wand chooses you and then you'll be sent back to Diagon Alley. 7) Click on the Arrow to go back to the Main Menu. 8) Click the Wand on the table - Classrooms. 9) Place the cursor over the word- Transfigurations under the Cat and hit DOWN Arrow (or simply move the cursor directly to the *H* under the fire and skip to 12). 10) The two Owls under the fire will be highlighted. Hit Enter. 11) The *H* above the Owls is highlighted. Hit Enter. 12) Click on the Flute, above Fluffy's three heads. 13) Click on the tiny key with the bent wing tip at the door. Or pick any key. When you miss four times the correct key will be shown in the center of the screen, much much larger than the others. Click it. 14) Click on the short, round, yellow bottle in the back. Do this fast or you'll land in the Hospital Wing anyway. 15) In the Mirror of Erised click on the Stone.

Question: Why does Mr Myagi call Daniel, "Daniel san"?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: "San" is a japanese term of respect. Sort of like the english "Mr.", however "Sir" would be a little closer to what it means in japanese. They attach the "San" at the end of someone's name, rather than at the begining like english speakers do.

Question: On Yahoo movies, the description of this film says "including a climactic stunt of immense insanity." Now I have seen the movie, but I can't figure out just what stunt was the "climactic one". They all seemed quite climactic and very insane, so I'm wondering if anyone actually knows what stunt they were talking about, or if anyone has a good idea of which one it was.

Chosen answer: Yes, there is a very lengthy and intricate stunt done called the Perfect Ending or something like that. You have to view the extra features on the Jackass DVD to see it.

William Bergquist

Question: Whistler introduces himself as 'Abraham Whistler'. Could there possibly be a connection to Abraham Van Helsing in the original Bran Stoker writings, who also fought vampires?

Chosen answer: There could be but there doesn’t really seem to be any information about where the name came from. The Whistler character was invented by Marvel for Blade's appearance in the Spider-Man cartoon show in 1996, but there he was simply called Whistler, the first name – Abraham - came with the Blade movie. Now there has been more than one character with the last name Van Helsing in the comic books and Abigail in Blade: Trinity was originally also a Van Helsing (until the producers found out about the Van Helsing movie). So yes they might have chosen Abraham as a subtle reference to Van Helsing.

Question: In the trivia, it's said that the animals that were in Naboo, where Anakin falls off of, were in the asteroid battle with Jango and Obi Wan and in the arena battle running and on fire. I'm just wondering where and when do both of these things are seen.

Chosen answer: I've never seen one in the asteroid field but the second can be seen after the clones arrive at around 1:56:29 - look to the bottom-right of the screen.

Question: How old was Blade's mother when she gave birth to him back in 1967?

Chosen answer: Blade's mother was 23. Its hard to see but if you pause the DVD at the beginning where the wallet drops, zoom in and the date of birth says 2/16/44.

The-Immortal

Question: When they were showing Hell's Angels in the premiere, when there was a crash sequence, the explosions were in color, but the planes in the background were still in black and white. How is that possible? Why they didn't make the explosion in black and white too?

Chosen answer: They did this by hand to te explosions to add effect.

Disney-Freak

Question: Throughout the movie, what songs were E.D.I. playing?

Chosen answer: Most of them were new songs from the band Incubus.

Jane Doe

Question: At the end, a tripod collapses after behaving erratically for an hour, because the aliens inside were dead or dying. If so, wouldn't the tripod just stop moving and stand there because the aliens were too sick to operate it?

Chosen answer: Depends on exactly how the disease affected the aliens. They might have entered a state of dementia and started piloting erratically, or even just have muscle spasms that knocked the controls around inside the cockpit.

Gary O'Reilly

Answer: Remember, when the tripod is spotted acting erratically, a cloud of birds are seen swarming the vehicle (presumably feeding on the dead/dying aliens inside). We can speculate that, although the aliens inside were incapacitated by disease, the tripod itself was probably functioning on auto-pilot with no precise operator control. Vulnerable, the staggering tripod was then an easy target for the military rocket-propelled ordnance, which easily brought the tripod down.

Charles Austin Miller

Answer: Or they had a mental link with the tripods.

Show generally

Question: What was the chronological order in which there were new male employees working at Gentleman's Department after others had left the show? Was it Mr. Grainger, Mr. Lucas, Mr. Tebbs, Mr. Spooner, in that order? Or was it another way and who where they replaced by?

Chosen answer: The Gentleman's Department went as follows: Mr. Grainger left after series 5 and was replaced by Mr. Tebbs, who stayed until series 6. He was replaced by Mr. Goldberg for series 7. Meanwhile, Mr. Lucas also left in series 7. Mr. Goldberg left after series 7. Temporarily there were only two employees in the department. At the start of series 8 Mr. Spooner started working. The "third" position was filled first by Mr. Grossman then Mr. Klein. Incidentally, Young Mr. Grace stayed for the first 7 series, replaced by old Mr. Grace. Mr. Mash was on for the first 3 series, replaced by Mr. Harmon.

Question: Where can one pick up the 2-disc Special Edition of Garfield: The Movie? I found a review here - http://dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=55382 - but it does not give info on how to order it. I cannot find it online or in stores. Is it exclusive to the UK? And if so, is there any way an American like me can still get it?

Chosen answer: You can order it at http://www.cd-wow.com they ship for free worldwide. But it seems to be exclusive for region 2, so you should make sure that your DVD-player can play region 2 and your TV can handle PAL encoded movies before ordering it.

Question: In which House was Moaning Myrtle? It's not stated in either the book or the movie, but she does have a crest on her cloak, can anybody identify it?

Chosen answer: Her robe only had the Hogwarts crest on it, but J.K. Rowling has said on her website that she was a Ravenclaw.

Question: At the bowling alley Johnny says he's going to cure Paulette of her disease. The guys ask what disease, he says "emphysema" and they all go "ooh." Well I don't get it. Can someone please explain?

Chosen answer: Johnny says she has "nymphomania" not "emphysema". According to dictionary.com, nymphomania is defined as "excessive sexual desire in and behavior by a female."
