Question: Maybe I'm missing something, but why is it such a big deal that Trinity and Morpheus have to take the freeway when they're trying to escape with the Keymaker? Link reminds them that it's never been done, suggesting it's an incredibly risky manoeuvre, but why is this?

Shay

Chosen answer: Well, when they're on the freeway everybody in the cars are potential agents...the reason it's so dangerous (as opposed to, say, going by foot) is that agents in large vehicles are obviously more dangerous than agents on foot. The agents fear nothing, which is shown when the two agents in the lorries collide with each other. There are also fewer avenues of escape.

Disney-Freak

Question: What is the song that plays during the scene when the boy kiss in the woods?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: Make Your Own Kind Of Music, by Mama Cass.

Question: I watched this on British TV. On the site, I saw some mistakes talking about the ear piercing on the site. I did not see Hallie sterilizing the needle bit. Why is this?

Chosen answer: Because that scene was cut out for TV. This is a regular occurrence so that the movies will fit in the time slot given to them.

Question: This will sound stupid but I got really confused towards the end. If Gabriel was an angel, why was she helping the son of the Devil? And why did Lucifer send the son back to hell, then cure Constantine - I thought he wanted Constantine to go to hell?

Chosen answer: Gabriel had become a turncoat because she was sick of seeing unworthy humans receive preferential treatment from God. Lucifer sent the son back to hell as a warning not to try and usurp Daddy's position. He then cured Constantine because he could see the Gates of Heaven opening to receive him after the selfless act Constantine performed there at the end. Lucifer assumed that if he removed Constantine's cancer and let him stick around on Earth longer, Constantine would continue to make poor decisions and ruin whatever chances he'd earned toward getting into Heaven. And as such, eventually, Lucifer would get his revenge on him.

Rooster of Doom

Question: How did anyone find the cameras and the films? Surely if anyone else had gone into the woods, the same would have happened to them. So can anyone please explain?

Chosen answer: The in-universe explanation is that a student anthropology team from a nearby university was performing an examination at the house foundation. A section of stone wall collapsed revealing a pit of ash, timber and soil. When the students dug through the soil, they found a duffel bag full of tapes and reels. That was a year after the three students disappeared.

Question: In the shot where the albino is traveling in the plane to the Mud Islands, then suddenly he's back in Memphis chasing Tom Cruise. How does he travel or get there so fast? Being one shot in the Mud Islands and the next shot in Memphis, it's not possible.

Chosen answer: Mud Island is in Memphis. You either walk across a covered walkway or take a monorail to it. He didn't take plane to get there to chase Tom Cruise.

Ingabritzen

Question: In the scene where Eversmann is briefing his team ready for them to gear up and go out, he says something like "sorry ass JROTC". What does JROTC stand for?

00:26:00

The-Immortal

Chosen answer: Junior Reserve Officers Training Corp. You have JROTC in high school and ROTC in college. It's a way of getting a commission in the military early on. It's often not looked fondly upon by officers who came up through the enlisted ranks first.

Grumpy Scot

Question: What did Sylvia actually die of? I didn't catch it in the movie, if it was there.

Chosen answer: Sylvia Llewelyn Davies and her husband died of cancer within a few years of each other (although he was actually alive during Barrie's relationship with his family).

The One After Vegas - S6-E1

Question: In the breakfast scene, Joey is informed that it is a self-serve buffet, and he says "This is where I win my money back." What does this mean? Does he intend to place bets with people about how much he can consume?

Chosen answer: He means he will eat so much of the casino's food that it will make up for the money that he lost to the casino by gambling.

Myridon

Question: Who were the Army of the Dead and why do they hate everyone?

Chosen answer: During the War of the Last Alliance (the battle against Sauron shown in the prologue), the men who inhabited the White Mountains (those between Gondor and Rohan) swore an oath of allegiance to Isildur. When he called on them to fight, they refused, so Isildur cursed them to walk the paths of the Dead until they redeemed themselves. In time, they all died, but their spirits remained - they were unable to move on to whatever awaits men after their deaths. At the time of the War of the Ring, they've been in this state for three thousand years, which has left them with a deep hatred for the living. Only when Aragorn, Isildur's heir, comes to them and calls upon them to finally fulfil their original oath, are they finally able to move on.

Question: Does anybody know that last name of the family. I have watched almost every episode and I don't think it has ever been mentioned.

Chosen answer: There has been speculation that the last name of Malcolm and his family is "Wilkerson." The name appeared in the title of the pilot script, but Linwood Boomer who wrote the pilot script says the family name has never been disclosed because they didn't want the family to fall into any specific ethnic group. Although on the DVD cover, the episode information refers to them as Wiskerson.

Randy DeShong

Question: Is the man who married Ivy's sister, Kitty, the same man who was supposed to escort Ivy into the woods, but chickened out before going in?

Chosen answer: Yes. His name is Cristoph Crane.

Question: At the end when David wakes up, who is the woman's voice telling him to open his eyes? Is it just a generic woman from LE, or is it someone more important?

Chosen answer: There's no indication that it's not just one of the people at LE.

Show generally

Question: For episode 15 of season 11, "Alone in a Crowd", NBC's website lists that Ming-Na stars. However I never saw her in the episode and she's no longer included in the opening credits, hasn't been for several episodes. Can anyone point out to me where in the episode she appeared?

Chosen answer: She is no longer on the show - her last episode was "Twas the Night". They must have not yet taken her out of the opeing credits.

Question: What is the reason for all of the Iodine in the shrimp and if it makes people that sick, why would they put it in there?

Chosen answer: Nobody puts iodine in shrimp. It is a naturally occurring substance in shellfish that some people are allergic to.

Guy

Question: The IMDb lists a cameo by Matt Damon during the attack sequence. Can someone point out exactly where he appears?

Chosen answer: He is in the scene where the smaller air-base is being attacked by the japanese. You have to look really closely but he is the driver of one of the jeeps right before the japanese bomb drops (the one that seems to be a dud and then explodes). Also, Matt seems to be one of the gunners on one of the first ships at Pearl Harbor to return fire (this is not verified but in slo-mo, one of the gunners seems to be him).

Question: When the Beast lets Belle go and she goes back home with her sick father, and "proves" to the village that there really is a Beast via the magic mirror, and Gaston and his posse invade the Beast's castle - How did the anthropomorphic objects and the Beast know that Belle didn't *send* Gaston to kill the Beast? I mean, we know Belle hates Gaston, but the objects and Beast don't know that. For all they know, Belle could have said to Gaston, "There's this beast, and he was keeping me in his castle, and he thinks I like him but I've been faking it."

Chosen answer: I think the simplest answer is that they trust her. Belle showed what kind of a person she was when she volunteered to take her father's place as a prisoner, and also when she returned to the castle with the wounded Beast instead of running away. Plus, the Beast voluntarily released her, and he did treat her kindly most of the time. I think suspecting her of a hidden hatred that would result in sending people to attack the castle would be kind of a stretch.

Question: How did Spooner get Sarah's necklace, if he only saw her passing by in a car?

Chosen answer: He knew way too much about her (he knew her age and what she wanted to be when she grew up) for that to have been the only time. I would suspect that, after the accident, the vehicles were brought out of the water. Knowing the kind of person Spooner is, he probably felt guilty enough that he survived that he went to speak with the family. They probably talked about her a good deal. The family may have given him the necklace. That's just the kind of schmaltzy thing that happens in movies.

Answer: Spooner most likely knew pedigree information about the girl because he not only has access to the police report about the incident, there was likely media coverage about the crash.
