Caged - S2-E7

Question: In this episode, Catherine says, "I think I know the word that made her throw her coffee," and Sarah says she hates that word. While I could take a few educated guesses, I'm not sure what word they mean and I can't tell from Croft's mouth movements either. Can someone enlighten me?

Chosen answer: I believe that she is referring to the 'C' word.

Question: Does anyone know all the words to the song Lili sings in the director's cut of the movie, or a place where I can find them?

Chosen answer: Well, I finally found a site that has the lyrics. So I'm going to answer my own question, if anyone else wants to know. http://www.figmentfly.com/legend/question27.html has the words.

Question: Does the Congressman know a different route to the same spa Elle goes, and how is it they arrive at the same time?

Chosen answer: It appears she went a different way. However, that doesn't mean it's not possible that it takes the same amount of time to reach the same destination.

Kara

Question: What tune does Ike play or start to play on the harmonica in the attic? It sounds somewhat familiar to me, but I have no idea what it is.

Chosen answer: It's a standard blues riff, used in many different songs.

Question: In Sofia Coppola's photo gallery on IMDB, there are three photos showing her in the press room at the DGA Awards holding what looks like a DGA Award in her arms. Since she didn't win this particular award, why does she have a photo of herself with one.

Chosen answer: That is not the DGA Award - that is the DGA Nomination Medal - all the nominees get one.

Question: I've been told that the original script for Alien 3 was quite different then it turned out to be, but due to costs/times it was revamped. Is this true?

Azureth

Chosen answer: There are umpteen different scripts for Alien 3 available on the net, some of which are very different to what was eventually made - some of the early ones are set in a monastery, rather than the prison colony that was eventually used.

Question: Just before Lebracio goes to the subway to find the ghost of Billy Mahoney, he crosses the street and about a dozen bicyclists come whizzing past him. Was this a hallucination? If so, why would he have a hallucination like that? If it wasn't a hallucination, what the heck are a bunch of racing bicyclists doing on a wet street that late at night?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: No hallucination. It was Halloween night, so everyone was acting a little crazy. That's why one of the med students shows up in a skeleton suit. Going further, the 'hum' of the bikes were used not only to throw the viewer off as the same humming noise Nelson describes with coming back from the dead, but to confuse Nelson with death and reality and these new sensations/feelings he is experiencing since being brought back to life. The cyclists are used, in a sense, to scare Nelson and viewers. The same 'hum' can be heard when Nelson first finds Billy Mahoney in the dingy tunnel.

Question: What is the music on which Billy dances when he is auditioning at the end of the film? It doesn't figure on the soundtrack.

Chosen answer: It's called 'I Will Dance' by Stephen Warbeck.

Question: What happened to Josh Hartnett's character after H2O? They never mentioned him in Halloween 8.

Chosen answer: We do not know what has become of him. Most likely he is just attending college, and Michael has yet to find him.

Answer: I read somewhere that he changed his name to Zeke, or something. Relocated to Ohio, or somewhere. And started dealing drugs at a high school. He also had a thing with his English teacher, she bore a startling resemblance to a Bond henchwoman. He didn't seem to be dating Molly.

Question: In the beginning of the sushi restaurant scene, two monsters walk in and everyone yells, "Get a paper bag." What's that about?

Chosen answer: In Japan, it's traditional for staff to say "irasshaimase" when customers enter a store or restaurant. This particular scene is a reference to that - while "irasshaimase" doesn't sound much like "get a paper bag", the cadence is not dissimilar, so it's quite plausible that the phrase has gradually mutated over the years through the mistakes of monsters who haven't been listening properly.

Question: What exactly is the Oracle?

Chosen answer: Well... there are many definitions. The Architect calls her the mother of the Matrix created by him to understand the mentality of human beings. As taken from the ending of this movie he explains that from the time of the first version of the Matrix there was always a percentage of people who would reject the matrix programming. Not understanding this the Architect created the Oracle to find out why. It was the Oracle who suggested that most of the people will accept the programming and that a small percentage must be left to escape, thus the creation of Zion and the cycle of destroying and renewal.

Question: What is the name of the song that is playing when Jesse goes to the bar for the first time?

Chosen answer: Excess by Tricky is the song that plays when Jesse first goes to the bar. It's track 13 on the soundtrack.

Question: I heard some people saying that Harrison Ford's performance in ROTJ was 'phoned-in'. What does this mean exactly?

Chosen answer: "Phoned in" is a term that means the actor's heart wasn't in the role. They were physically there, but there was a distance between them and their character. If an actor is in a movie merely because of a contractual agreement and not because they truly connect with the movie or the character, they put less effort into the part and some people can pick that up when they watch the show.

Question: Why does Miranda see a dead boy at the end? Her husband didn't "do" boys according to the Sherriff. Will she see every missing person now?

Chosen answer: Probably, she has a sixth sense which will most likely help angry spirits bring down the person or persons who killed them or caused them to die.

T Poston

Question: Does Roxie get back together with her husband at the end? We see him leave, but they don't explain it. Perhaps the stage play explains this.

Chosen answer: Amos wants to reconcile when the trial ends but Roxie walks away. (The end of their marriage is not explained in the stage play, either.) One is led to believe Roxie leaves Amos and goes on to stardom.
