Say My Name - S5-E7

Question: Did Walt plan on killing Mike? If so, why? It seems like he just did it in a fit of rage, but then why did he take his gun?

raph

Answer: As you stated, it was in a fit of rage, he regretted it right afterwards.

Question: Why did Juni leave the OSS again? Also, why does Carmen seem to hate him again? They got over that in the first movie.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: Did Brooks really have McClanahan play in the third period of the game against Sweden even though he was injured?

Question: Since Lentz was really the mastermind behind the entire thing, why did Nichols have him killed?

Answer: Lentz was not the mastermind, Nichols was. Nichols had Lentz killed to tie up a loose end.

Beneath the Surface - S4-E10

Question: Why couldn't Calder and his people do the shoveling themselves? Were they lazy?

Answer: Technically Calder's people were doing the digging themselves. The planet basically had a caste system and the working class citizens had to do the digging as slaves while the upper class citizen got to live on the surface. All the workers underground were citizens of the planet except for SG-1. However, Calder was also trying to preserve this caste system because he wanted to stay in power and the upper class enjoyed their lifestyle. I don't see it so much as being lazy but more like, why do something yourself when you can get someone else to do it.

Bishop73

Then what would you call being lazy?

Laying around, not doing anything when you could be, or are suppose to be, doing something. In this episode, the upper class people still had jobs, they just didn't do the dangerous, dirty, and labor intensive jobs.

Question: During the slapping, what did George mean when he said send him up to the front?

Answer: "The front" means the front line, i.e., where the enemy is being engaged. He's saying that since the soldier isn't physically injured, he should be fighting, not (as Patton sees it) being a coward and shirking his duty.

Answer: He meant that he intended to send the soldier back to his unit where the main fighting with the enemy is taking place. This is referred to as "the front."

Question: What was the name of the fake person that Andy helped Warden Norton create?

Answer: Randall Stephens. And strictly speaking, he didn't "help" Norton create the fake person...he did it on his own initiative, to launder Norton's ill-gotten gains. If Norton knew about Randall Stephens at all, he likely didn't understand the purpose but trusted that Andy was doing it for his (Norton's) own good.

Question: Is it known what Mundungus was selling that man in diagon alley?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: No, it is not known what he was selling, only that it was likely some kind of an illegal or unsavory business transaction.

Season 4 generally

Question: What did Susan do after she left at the end of season 4?

Dan23

The Philadelphia Story - S4-E26

Question: Is this the first time Will went back to Philadelphia?

Dan23

Answer: As stated previously, Will returned from spending the summer in Philly at the beginning of s03e01. But this is the first time the audience sees Will going back to Philadelphia.

Bishop73

Question: Why did Brooks want to make his players hate him?

Answer: Since they all came from different, sometimes rival, universities, and thus had no commonality, he wanted to give them someone to dislike together, instead of fighting with one another. If they could all bond over what a bastard Brooks was, they'd come together faster as a team and have a chance of winning.

Question: How come Harry and Peter stopped living together?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: While it's never mentioned in the film, the most likely explanation is that Harry, as a rich kid, grew tired of "slumming it" and decided to move back into his mansion.

Jason Hoffman

Question: Why was the camel left with the 2 murdered men?

Answer: It is stated very plainly that the Arabs left the camel behind because it was lame. This was a dramatic device to demonstrate the Arabs' ruthlessness: They murdered two human beings in cold blood, but allowed a lame camel to live. Note that the camel scene appears in the 1965 film, but not at all in the 2004 film.

Charles Austin Miller

Answer: It's unknown why they left the camel there.
