Question: People are saying that Neo is dead. But the Oracle said to Sati 'it is likely that we will see him one day'. Is she talking about the next version of the Matrix? I feel kind of sad about the ending, I wanted a happy ending, not a horrible sad ending.

Chosen answer: It is not clear whether Neo is dead or not, so the Oracle may be alluding to the fact that he is still alive or that there will be a future "One".

Question: What is the chant the Toros say after the other cheerleading team tells them they suck during the football game?

Chosen answer: If you're referring to the scene I think you are, the chant is "That's alright, that's OK, you're gonna pump our gas someday!"

Question: I know Angel killed Darla in season one of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but I could have sworn that she was brought back before Wolfram and Hart resurrected her in human form. Did they or am I just remembering flashbacks?

Chosen answer: Though Darla frequently appeared in flashbacks after Angel killed her (around Angel's rebirth, his gang, etc.), she was never raised from the dead until the end of season one of Angel (To Shanshu in LA).

Phoenix

Question: Where can I watch JUST the tap dancing footage without the courtroom scenes interrupting?

Chosen answer: You could tape VCR-VCR and edit out the courtroom scenes. You just aren't going to find a DVD or VHS of any musical with only a few scenes removed to keep dance numbers in one piece.

Question: Jack mentions twice that eunochs have wonderful singing voices. Why would a eunoch have a wonderful singing voice? And is calling someone a eunoch a really bad insult of something? And how can all the French be eunochs?

Chosen answer: Primarily in the Middle Ages, but both before and after as well, preadolescent boys had their testicles cut off to preserve their voices by preventing the sexual changes of puberty. They then maintained the high voices of their youth through adulthood, though they never physically matured. So to call someone a eunoch is to say they are a person with no balls, and all the connotation thereof. Hence the insult to the French.

Chosen answer: "I'm through with being polite, goddamnit! I may never be polite the rest of my life!"

Question: When Blackadder is taunting Dr. Johnson with his knowledge of the English language, are any of the words he says legitimate words? If so what are their definitions?

Chosen answer: None of them are actually real words, although, in most cases, they're close enough to genuine words that some sort of plausible meaning can be determined. Good examples would be "interludicle", which is obviously a variant on "interlude", "velocitous", a play on "velocity" expressing Edmund's desire that Dr Johnson leave as soon as possible or "anaspeptic" which could be drawn from the prefix "ana", meaning "up" and "peptic", which refers to the stomach - possibly some sort of vomit reference.

Question: Where did the original zombies come from? I understand that if you were bitten, you became a zombie, but how did the very first zombie come about?

Chosen answer: The very first zombies would have been dead people that rose from their graves, but part of the horror of the story is that we don't know exactly why this is happening or how to stop it.

Question: Does anyone know where I can find transcripts for the show (mainly Day 1)?

Chosen answer: http://www.geocities.com/scripts_for_free/home has the first seven episodes of series one, the first episode of series two and the first eight episodes of series three.

Question: What does the Russian say when the Americans are going to board the Red October?

Chosen answer: He asks him if he likes bologna sandwiches.

Question: How do you get the secret easter eggs on both of the Extended DVD's? I've tried and I've only managed to get two of them and they were the trailers.

Chosen answer: To get to the MTV Council of Elrond parody: Disc 1 extended edition. Go to "Select a Scene" and scroll to scene 27, the C of E. Press DOWN and a ring should pop up. Select the ring. PJ appears and you see the parody. To get to the Two Towers preview: Disc 2 extended edition. From main menu, go to "Select a Scene." Select chapter 48 in right column. "Fan club credits" appears. Go back to the right column to chapter 48 and press DOWN. An image of the Two Towers pops up. Select the Towers. PJ appears and you see the preview.

Question: Was that Justin Timberlake i saw on the far left of the screen after the dance competition?

Chosen answer: No. If someone as big a star as Justin Timberlake was doing a cameo in a movie, it would be VERY well-known.

Question: During the Simpsons, characters have died and not come back as you would expect in real life. However, one character, Hans Moleman has been run over, been attacked by a drill and so on. How come he has not died?

Chosen answer: This is a recurring joke - Moleman should really be dead (he pops out of a grave in "Mother Simpson" and during the heatwave episode Dr. Hibbert find him cooling down in the morgue and says "Don't go too far", etc.) yet somehow isn't. It's a cartoon - don't look for too much reality.

Shay

Question: When Elizabeth throws her dress back to Barbarossa how does he know its still warm if he said earlier he cant feel the warmth of a woman's flesh?

Chosen answer: He knows that it's still warm, because Elizabeth's only just taken it off. He can't feel it, though - he's making a joke for his crew.

Question: What was so bad about the bearing's to the Isla De Morta that there was a mutiny back when Jack was captain of the Black Pearl?

Chosen answer: The island was almost impossible to get to and had a large treasure. Jack, as captain would have taken a greater share of the profits, so once the rest of the pirates knew the co-ordinates, they didn't need Jack anymore and got rid of him to increase their share. They were being greedy but hey - PIRATES!

Question: I never understood the two people on the bikes, you know the people with all the stars. What are they suppose to represent?

Chosen answer: They don't represent anything. Barry Sonnenfeld says in the commentary that he simply likes to use that cycling couple as he thinks that it is a cool visual.

Question: The Director states in the commentary that there are some clues to some kind of puzzle at certain scenes (such as When Lara is doing the bungee ballet and when Alex gets knifed). What are these clues that we're supposed to be looking for - something in the background? The action? Some kind of composition? And just what is the puzzle?

Chosen answer: This movie left a lot of holes. It was pretty much: Lara knew what to do and she did it. Perhaps there are clues in the movie, but the book explains all the puzzles in much more detail (as books do). So if you are really interested in the deep puzzles of the adventure, the Tomb Raider book is what you should look at.

Question: I am confused as to the time difference between X-Men and X2. I heard it is 3 weeks and it was 3 years. Some say its 3 years because of Cyclops' new car, but then I realize that it doesn't take Logan 3 years to reach Alkali Lake. So, what is the time difference?

Chosen answer: 3 weeks would be more than enough time to get to Canada and back. Further, we never know for sure if Cyclops had 2 or more cars to start with. Also, as Rogue is only 17-18, she would have changed dramatically in 3 years. 3 weeks, or a similar relatively short period of time, is far more likely.
