Question: Very near the beginning, Marianne is playing this tune that she says was her father's favourite and Elanor tells her to stop. What is the tune and is it possible to find music for it? It's not the 'Weep You No More Sad Fountains' one.

Question: Can anyone tell me what exactly a kneazle is? I know Crookshanks is part kneazle, as stated in Corrections, but I don't know what that means.

Chosen answer: To summarise their entry in "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them", a companion book written for charity by J K Rowling (under the pseudonym of "Newt Scamander", a Kneazle is a small cat-like creature which is intelligent, independent and occasionally aggressive which, should it take a liking to a witch or wizard, makes an excellent pet. They have an uncanny ability to detect unsavoury or suspicious characters and can be relied upon to guide their owner safely home if lost.

Christmas Every Day - S2-E1

Question: Why does Timmy wish for Christmas every day so he can get more toys? Couldn't he just ask Cosmo and Wanda for all the toys he wants?

Chosen answer: He didn't wish for it just to get more toys. He did it because he enjoys all of the Christmas experience, including his Mom and Dad being able to stay home, and not having to be babysat by Vicki.

Question: Does Bruce Banner remember anything he does when he becomes the Hulk?

Chosen answer: There are varying interpretations of Bruce's memory in the comics. The most common one is that Bruce has vague memories of what happens while he is the Hulk (i.e. fear, hunger, images), but because the Hulk's brain is less "evolved" he can't remember specific information, like where he went or what he did. The converse is also true: The Hulk has vague memories of Bruce's life as well...he recognizes people that Bruce knows but doesn't know anything about them.

Question: In the preview for this movie, there is chanting in the background of something that ends with 'When you see him count to five, pray that you will stay alive.' What, if anything, is this?

Chosen answer: This is a made up children's rhyme just like the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series has "One, two, Freddy's coming for you, three, four, better lock the door,..."

Myridon

Question: When Tom explains himself about cheating death within connection with Billy Hitchcock, how does this all work out?

Chosen answer: Tom was called out to view the scene of Billy's death. This meant that he avoided the shoot-out that killed his partner, and that should have killed him too.

Shay

Question: Does anyone know, or have any idea, what the policeman was referring to when the reporter asked for the bank information and he replied, "On one condition"?

Chosen answer: She had to divulge Crecy's phone number so that they can trace him. Or the condition is that she has sex with him. Opinion is divided.

It couldn't be so she would have sex with him since while he was saying on "one condition" she was putting her clothes back on from where they had just finished having sex.

Answer: The most likely condition is that it was for absolute assurance that "The Voice's" picture would be published, which she seemed to protest, and was even later harshly threatened to stop, but she did anyway. And / or to divulge Crecy's intentions of acting on the information once provided, furthering their investigation, which is also supported by their expectation of his arrival at the Barrio, and their delay in action until such time. They not only were not surprised of his arrival, or actions, they were waiting for it.

New this month Answer: The condition was that any serious leads that could lead to 'the voice's' location be kept confidential giving him the 1st chance to make the arrest, i.e., kill The Voice 1st.

Question: Did Mushu really kill the great dragon guardian?

Chosen answer: No, he destroyed the statue. The spirit of the guardian survived, but now had no way to manifest itself physically. Presumably, once a new statue was created, the guardian would be able to embody it and come to life.

Post Traumatic Slide Syndrome - S2-E8

Question: At the end of the episode, do we know for sure that the right Arturo slid with the others, instead of the Arturo of the world that they were on? Or is it simply meant for us to wonder?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: It's left for us to wonder.

Question: I may have just missed it, but what happened to J's female partner, the lady who worked in the morgue, from the end of the first film?

Mark English

Chosen answer: There's one line where Zed tells J he can't keep neuralyzing partners. J replies with something like "Hey, L wanted to go back to the morgue." So he zapped her and she is back working as a coroner.

Question: Is there a reason why all planets (except earth) have a number attached to their names? Or is that never explained?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Planets that don't actually have a specific name tend to be referred to by the name of the star which they orbit and a number indicating how far out they are - so the planet Tau Ceti IV would be the fourth planet out from the star Tau Ceti. Under this system, our planet could be referred to as Sol III, but as it has a given name, that is used instead.

Parallels - S7-E11

Question: Even though Worf keeps jumping from parallel universe to parallel universe, he never encounters his double (i.e., the Worf from the universe he jumped into). At the end, when the Enterprise from Worf's final alternate universe contacts the "real" Enterprise, there's a Worf on the bridge with the "real" crew. Does this mean that every time Worf moved into a different reality, all the other Worfs shifted around as well?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: Correct. When Worf jumps, the other Worfs jumped also. That is how the other Enterprise (the one with the same signature as the Worf the episode follows) knew what was going on.

Bruce Minnick

Answer: When Worf jumps to another dimension, whatever Worf is on that ship is immediately sent to the dimension that the original Worf comes from. As an example, when Prime Worf jumps to the dimension where he is married to Counselor Troi, the Worf from that dimension is immediately sent to Prime Worfs dimension. All of the other Worfs stay in their own dimension until Prime Worf is inadvertently sent to one of theirs. After Prime Worf leaves that dimension, the Worf that had been sent to Prime Enterprise would end up back in his own dimension. Not shunted to another one.

Question: Why did Brett Ratner bother making this film if, essentially, it's just a scene-for-scene remake of "Manhunter"?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: First, it's not a scene by scene remake - they didn't even use the same script. Secondly, the first movie was made with low production values, the star at the time had only been a bit player in a couple of movies. Since the movie of the second novel was a huge hit in 91, the third novel a hit in 01, plans for a remake of the first novel were probably put into motion before William Petersen made it big on CSI, which didn't even start until late in 2000. And let's face it, everybody wanted to see Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal again.

Myridon

Question: Not sure if there is a definite answer to this question. But was it Ace who murdered Chris Chambers in later years?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: No, according to later books, Ace never really left Castle Rock and Chris was killed while away at college.

Grumpy Scot

Question: When talking to Freddy Lounds, why does Francis Dolarhyde wear the stocking over his face?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: He wears the stocking over his face for two reasons: (a) to protect his identity (to make Lounds think he'll survive) and (b) remember that Francis believes he is an "ugly monster" so he is also wearing the stocking to defer judgement away from him.

Question: This is driving me crazy because every time I watch it, I come up with a different answer but can someone tell me who the two guys are that are playing basketball during the 'Down With The Sickness' montage?
