Question: I don't understand this, if Donkey's true love is the dragon, why did he turn into a steed instead?

Answer: The potion says that both the one who drinks the potion and their true love will "be fine" So Donkey and Dragon were both changed. Although we don't see her until the end It is said that she turned in to a Pegasus.

Question: In real life, can you really get away with anything if you have diplomatic immunity?

raph

Answer: In short, diplomatic immunity would prevent a host country (such as the United States) from charging a diplomatic agent or diplomatic staff member with any crime (if they've been granted immunity). However, the agent's home country may waive immunity if the crime is deemed serious enough or the home country can prosecute the agent themselves. However, the host country can still expel a person with diplomatic immunity from the country and ban them from returning. And while diplomatically immuned people have committed serious crimes in the past, diplomats are usually seasoned and respected civil servants in their countries and can damage their careers if they cause any embarrassment while visiting a host county and tend to comply with local laws and customs out of respect.

Question: At Thunder Road, how old is the woman that starts the race? She looks about 50.

Answer: I believe you are asking about Cha Cha, who was played by Annette Charles. Annette was 30 (or about to turn 30 if her scene was shot before her birthday in March). It could have just been the make-up she was wearing that made her look older. And if it seems weird to use someone that old to play a high school girl, Olivia Newton-John was also 29 at the time of filming.

Question: Why did the first sail boat the ship hit explode?

xx:xx:xx

Answer: There is no logical reason for it and it is purely for cinematic theatrics. It's a movie myth that cars, boats, etc. immediately explode upon impact. In real life, explosions rarely happen that way.

Question: What is the significance of the birds?

Question: What was Conker's reason for killing the baby dinosaur? The little guy did nothing to him.

Answer: The baby dino was just a sacrifice to the Dino god statue and had to be killed. Although in the game Conker seems to know the slab will kill the baby dino but didn't know he was sacrificing him for a reason. And the player only performs the sacrifice because of the in-game clues given about what to do, but no explanation seems to be given why Conker apparently kills him without knowing why.

Bishop73

Question: What does Thomas mean by "There are some children who are pillars of flame that burn everything they touch and there are some children who are just pillars of ash that fall apart when you touch them. Me and Victor, we were children born of flame and ash."

Answer: He's basically saying that Victor is strong and standoffish and he is weak and sensitive.

Question: What's the soundtrack that's heard in the mess hall, when Elgyn picks up a rifle and hears the Xenomorphs killing the Auriga crew?

Detox - S1-E11

Question: Why wasn't the naphthalene poisoning noticed when tests were run? It's easily detectable through blood tests, and scans.

Grandpa Jack - S9-E4

Question: This is a question without a knowable answer. But I wonder if anyone has thoughts as to why we hear nothing of Elliot's mother? Jack and Elliot are estranged. Elliot's mother, Bonnie (originally played by Rosie O'Donnell), acknowledged to Jack that she is a lesbian in the original run of the series. So, when Elliot marries a conservative woman, moves to Texas, and makes plans to send his gay son to a gay conversion camp, where is Bonnie in all of this?

Children of the Gods (1) - S1-E1

Question: I thought that you could only travel one way through the gate, but in the pilot, the bad guys come through, kill the military guys, then go back though without dialing a new wormhole.

Answer: You can only travel that way. The wormhole closed after Apophis forces came through (as can be seen during various scenes). Probably they also brought a mobile version of a DHD got get back (this indeed can't be seen).

They have been various times where the stargate has been dialled without use of the DHD of the dialing computer.

Question: When SG-1 travels to alien planets they always experience earth like gravity. Shouldn't they be experiencing different gravity on different planets?

Answer: Basically, if a planet has the same mass and size, it will have the same gravity. Since the Stargates were placed on habitable planets, it's likely they placed them on planets with the same gravity. Even if the planet's varied in mass or size, a planet's gravity in relations to Earth can be calculated as m/r^2where m is the planet's mass compared to Earth's mass and r2 is the planet's radius (compared to Earth's) squared. So if a planet had 50% the mass and 70% radius of Earth, gravity would be 0.5/0.7^2 which would be 1.02 times the gravity of Earth (or roughly the same).

Brian's Got a Brand New Bag - S8-E4

Question: "That's the number, Brian. Just dial 0 and read it to Sarah." I don't understand what's going on here and who is Sarah?

HEK_98

Answer: It's a joke about how Rita's so old the number on her bracelet wasn't a 7-digit number. In the early 20th century to place a call you could call "Central" and tell the operator "Murray Hill 4185" and she would connect you. Rita is telling Brian to call the operator (dial "0") and read "Murray Hill 4185" to Sarah, the operator.

Question: Why does Kylo Ren want to finish what Vader started? Why couldn't he just leave things the way they were? Why would he turn to the dark side just to finish what Vader started?

Answer: We don't know the reasoning behind Kylo Ren's motives just yet, but that will likely be gradually answered as the story unfolds in the upcoming sequels. Knowing too much about Kylo's backstory and his underlying motive early on would ruin the plot and eliminate any suspense leading up to the reveal.

Question: Why, when Cornell walks out on the attorney General, did they not arrest him for assassination of the arch bishop?

Answer: Maybe the crime was committed outside the United States, and they simply didn't have the jurisdiction to charge him.

Question: What happened to the people who disappeared? Did they die?

Answer: Yes, the passengers who were awake through the time rift were killed instantly, including Nick Hopewell on the return trip.

Danny Duignan

Answer: No, they didn't die. The premise of the story is that the sleeping plane passengers were in an alternate timeline a few minutes out-of-sync with normal time; so, when they awoke, they were aware of a dead zone in the immediate past. Everyone else in the world is still alive in the present. The "Langoliers" were interdimensional creatures that fed on the past, gobbling it up like a stage-cleaning crew.
