Day 2: 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M. - S2-E24

Question: At the end of the episode is the famous scene where the woman shakes hands with Palmer and gives him some kind of poison. When the camera first pans onto her it zooms in and suspenseful music plays. This indicates to me that we are supposed to be surprised who she is. Did I miss something? Was she on the show before and her appearance as the assassin supposed to be a surprise? Or was everything just for dramatic effect?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: She was in the first season. She was the woman who destroys and then parachutes out of the airplane in the first episode of the series.

JC Fernandez

Question: What kind of lizard does Annie put on Meredith's water bottle?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: It's a Chinese water dragon.

Day 2: 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M. - S2-E24

Question: Who are the people Kingsley are reporting to on the phone? I understand he works for them but was there ever any indication as to who they were or what their roll in all this was?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: As revealed in 24: The Game, Max was a weapons dealer with ties to terrorist organizations. It is further revealed in the game that his weapons dealings with terrorists were interfered with by American authorites. which caused the deals to go sour. His terrorist clients retaliated by murdering his family before his eyes. Presumably, he was primarily motivated by revenge against the American Government, with a secondary goal of driving up oil prices to make himself rich. To this end, he masterminded the plot to start a war between the US and three Middle Eastern countries.

Season 3 generally

Question: At the end of season 2, President Palmer relieves Mike of his duties. However in season 3 Mike is back working with Palmer. Did I miss something?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: Season 3 takes place three years after Season 2. Palmer could've forgiven and moved on in that time.

Season 3 generally

Question: Why was Sharona written out of the show? If it was Bitty Schram's choice then why did she quit?

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: As with most "he-said she-said" situations, we might never know. USA Network spokesman said the show was already planning on going a different direction with some characters. That said, Schram was trying to renegotiate her contract terms, but USA Network did not give in. For more of the story; here's an older news story http://www.today.com/id/5875714.

Question: Right after you find out Oogie Boogie is just a bag full of bugs he falls into the lava, or at least what looks like lava. It looks as if this is not an animated shot, is it a shot from a real camera?

Movieman123

Chosen answer: Yes, it was shot "real time" as opposed to stop-motion animation as the rest of the film was.

Question: When, how and why was the police officer recruited by Jigsaw?

Simpsonholic

Chosen answer: We don't know. This will probably be covered in an upcoming sequel.

Twotall

Show generally

Question: In the very first episode of Transformers, you see them on Cybertron, millions of years before they crash land on Earth. Why is it that Optimus already resembles a semi truck? The truck parts are visible, the windows, doors, and tires and such. They don't scan Earth to look like vehicles till millions of years later. I never understood that.

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: The toys came first, the cartoon and the movies came later, they were hardly going to let a small detail like that get in the way of business. So basically it's a deliberate mistake.

Season 5 generally

Question: When is the series 5 DVD going to be released in Australia?

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: Currently there is still no release date as of yet but my guess would be early 2008 it will likely be released in Australia.

Question: When Marty is playing the guitar after he get fired in the future, Jennifer is trying to sneak out and while he's playing, she stops and turns around to look at Marty. Why does she do this? It made no sense, she could have been caught. Was he playing their "special" song or something?

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: It is because Marty used to be a very good guitar player. After his accident, when he broke his hand, he couldn't play very well anymore. Jennifer stops in shock that he is playing so horribly now. She is used to him playing the guitar greatly.

SAZOO1975

The Snuke - S11-E4

Question: In the episode 1009 Mystery of the Urinal Deuce we get to know that Cartman believes 9/11 was a conspiracy. At the end, Stan and Kyle got to know the real truth, but Cartman didn't. Why would he think that new guy is a terrorist, if he believes that 9/11 was a conspiracy by the U.S. government?

Ssiscool Premium member

Chosen answer: Cartman is paranoid. Just because he believes 9/11 was a government conspiracy doesn't mean he doesn't also suspect everyone else.

Question: Delia Surridge tells V that she didn't know what the virus was going to do. How could she not have known? She created the virus and was administering it to people and seeing what it did.

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: She states outright that she was aware she was developing a biological weapon, she just didn't know whom they were going to use it against.

Question: Why isn't V killed by the virus administered to him at Larkhill?

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: He has a natural immunity to it.

Phixius Premium member

Answer: He was tested on but not with a virus. They achieved what they intended and that was to crate a blank slate super soldier! To quote the movie "the subject remembered nothing of who he was". But he remembered the torture that got him there and had the biography to inspire his hatred. The virus was created from Vs blood because of his reactions to the virus.

Question: When Chris Farley's character it talking for his brother at the concert, he sees the black guys he was smoking weed with and tells the audience to "kill whitey" which stuns the audience into silence. I have heard this phrase before. What does it mean?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: It means kill the white man.

OneHappyHusky

Show generally

Question: Was the TV movie "Exiled" set in real time? I caught the last half hour of it on TV, and at one point, Logan makes a reference to an event from "three years ago"; the film was aired in 1998, and 1995 was Chris Noth's last season on the show.

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Yes, it was set roughly three years after the incident that had Logan "exiled".

Question: What was the point of the scientist releasing the clone Alices and then putting them through the test to have them killed? Did they explain this and I missed it or what?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: The reason that the cloned alices were put through the tests was their attempt to get a "perfect" clone of her. They knew that Alice was the key to taking back the zombie infestation, so they were trying to get the "perfect" clone. The perfect clone would have all of her memories and reactions, so they put the clones through that testing facility. If she made it out alive, then she was the perfect clone. If she didn't, then it was back to the drawing board.

Nick Bylsma

Question: When Karl is cutting the phone lines with the chainsaw, what is his brother yelling at him in German?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: He is shouting "No, no, I'm not finished here!" as presumably if the lines are cut before he's finished rerouting them (or whatever exactly he's doing) an alarm or similar will be tripped.

Question: What would happen if Aragorn stabbed one of the Dead soldiers with Anduril?

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: Instead of passing on they would cease to exist.

Phixius Premium member

Question: Is there ANY chance of them making a film based on the trailer Titanic Two the Surface? It seems like a really good idea for a sequel.

Answer: None whatsoever. While the trailer's a clever example of an editing job, the actual concept is absurd to a truly spectacular degree, and would undoubtedly be seen as a completely shameless cash-in on the original, to the extent where even studio executives might well balk at the idea.
