Question: Three guys made up the offensive line that was affectionately nicknamed the "Coneheads" after the classic Saturday Night Live skits from the late 70s. What specifically caused them to earn this nickname? What's the connection between those three guys and the Coneheads from Saturday Night Live? The assistant coach starts to give an explanation, but doesn't elaborate enough to offer a clear answer.Matty Blast
Question: At the very beginning of the movie, Joe Clark is enraged when he finds out that there is a meeting going on without him. What exactly is the subject of this meeting (other than the obvious dismissal of Mr. Clark)? Why is Mr. Clark accusing them of "selling out," and what do the people in the meeting refer to when they say, "You want to be posturing, etc., but we just want to work."?Matty Blast
Question: In the flashback scene in the bar, Striker throws his hat, but it comes back to him like a boomerang. He then throws his jacket, and it also comes back to him like a boomerang, but this time you can see the hand that throws it at him. Is the hand a crew member's, or it is intended to be somebody throwing it back at him?Jackie Menechino
Question: Before Lina sings "Singin' in the Rain," she keeps backing up to the curtain (to ask Kathy what song she's going to sing, and in what key). Wouldn't that tip off the audience that Lina wasn't using her own voice?
Question: Slightly more wide-ranging a question than just Friends, but it's relevant at the moment. With Massachusetts being in the news for offering same-sex weddings, and apparently being the first state to fully sanction it, was the wedding in this episode (back in the mid '90s) based on any then-current law, or just made up for the purposes of the plot?Jon Sandys
Question: When Will is discovered by the professor, he is solving a math problem using what appear to be stick figures. Is there a branch of mathematics that deals with these stick figures?
Question: How exactly did the chief justice taking "the long walk" help to keep the Janus project secret? They were worried Dredd's conviction would cause the media to dig, but he was convicted of murder regardless of his execution. Wouldn't the chief justice retiring over it make the media even MORE eager to dig?
