The Undergraduate - S1-E17

Question: When Greg and his teacher are going over math in the classroom, they both mention the words "Base 10" in a math problem. What does "Base 10" mean?

Answer: Base 10 refers to the numbering system in common use in the United States and most of the world. Take a number like 475, base ten refers to the position, the 5 is in the one's place, the 7 is in the ten's place and the 4 is in the hundred's place. Each number is 10 times the value to the right of it. That's why the term "base ten" is used. Numbers look very different when the base system changes.

Question: Who is the communications operator that says "DC has gone dark?"

Question: When Hermione says "you go I'll stay" why was she looking sad?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: She wasn't sad. They'd all just been through a rather harrowing and scary experience inside the Shrieking Shack, and she has been emotionally affected by it all. She's also worried about Ron, whose leg was injured.

Question: Why did Hermione keep telling Harry to go when they were out of the shrieking shack? And where did they want him to go?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Hermione was telling Harry to go over to Sirius, who had gone a little further ahead. Harry was torn between tending to Ron, who'd injured his leg, and wanting to talk to Sirius. Hermione thought it more important for Harry and Sirius to talk while she stayed with Ron. Harry had only found out moments before that Sirius was not responsible for murdering his parents, and he had much to discuss with his godfather.

Question: Why did they stop when they got out of the Whomping Willow?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Ron's leg had been injured and he couldn't walk any further. They needed to tend to him before going on. If Lupin had not transformed into a werewolf and Pettigrew not escaped, one of the others probably would have gone on to get help transporting Ron back to the castle.

Question: At the climax of the movie when Malcolm talks to his wife while she was sleeping, a ring from her has fallen down to the floor, what does it mean? Is his wife married to another man?

Answer: It's his own wedding ring. He recognizes it and sees she is still wearing hers and he isn't wearing his own, so at that point he realises he is dead.

Answer: The ring was Malcolm's - she kept it after he died. When it falls Malcolm realises that he hasn't been wearing it even though he sees it on his hand.

Question: Instead of trying to murder them, why didn't the Lizzies simply contact the Riffs and tell them they had 3 of the warriors and to come get them? They had plenty of time.

Gavin Jackson

Answer: The Riffs had put out a hit on the Warriors via the radio DJ, meaning that it didn't matter if the Warriors were taken alive or not; the Lizzies probably figured it would be easier simply to kill the Warriors and collect the reward.

Question: Had John Doe not been killed by Mills, what charges would he be facing exactly?

EK8829

Answer: At the very least, six counts of first degree/premeditated murder (the five sin victims, plus Tracy); six counts of assault and battery; three counts of home invasion; and two counts of kidnapping (Gluttony and Sloth). His lawyer says that he planned to plead insanity, but this could not realistically have been defended, at the very least because (as Somerset points out) his threat to do so would be admissible evidence.

Question: How did getting shot knock Jason unconscious? Second, how did getting shot cause him to lose his memory?

Answer: Any significant shock could cause a person to lose consciousness. The amnesia was probably a combination of the shock of being shot, half-drowning, and the fact that Conklin had the Treadstone agents "wound so tight, one of them was bound to snap."

Question: Rogue asked if Logan promised to take care of her if she came back to the institute, so why was she still on the train since he said he promised?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: The train had just started moving, so perhaps they just decided to wait for the first scheduled stop to get off.

Question: Why were they all staring at Phil because he asked the man to cuff Phil to him? Also why did Cylia and Cyril not seem so angry at Phil?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: Why does Phil so desperately want the farm?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: Why would Phil even gamble away the farm to Mrs Biggles in the first place? If he didn't neither him or Isabel and her kids would have gotten in that awful mess in the first place?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: What kind of chocolate was it that Hogarth poured on Mansley's ice cream?

Answer: It was a laxative to make him go to the bathroom.

Question: Joy doesn't let Sadness use the console, so why doesn't she mind when Fear, Anger, or Disgust do the same?

Answer: Joy is very controlling of everyone when it comes to using the console. We only see Fear, Anger, and Disgust use it briefly, even when Joy is gone.

Doomworld - S2-E16

Question: When Mayor Damien Darhk puts up the mask in his collections, who do the other masks individually belong to? I recognize Flash and maybe Diggle and Green Arrow.

Bishop73

Answer: Black Canary, Spartan, Wild Dog, and Ragman.

Fonzie's a Thespian - S7-E7

Question: How could the play "The Rainmaker" still be performed after Fonzie scared off the director?

Answer: If all the actors and hands know their roles well enough they could perform the play reasonably well even without a director.

Show Ghouls - S7-E15

Question: If they already vanquished Sargon in "Soul Survivor" and burned all the contracts, shouldn't the deal between him and Count Roget have been broken too?

Answer: Yes.

Question: What exactly was the enormous creature that came out of the ground and attacked Flash in the forest?

Question: How does Magneto know that Stryker was the one who gave Wolverine his adamantium?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: When Mystic broke into Stryker's offices, by changes into Lady Deathstryke, she got into his computer files. There were decades of top secret and covert op files. Besides, Magneto himself had decades to gather intelligence on any government officials, who were against mutants.
