Question: What was the whole pancakes scene about with Dennis? I just don't understand it.

Chosen answer: The writer saw the boy's martial arts skills and wrote in that part just for him to be in the movie.

Question: At the end when the girl 'dies' you can see someone in the corner. Who is it?

Chosen answer: It is Mike. If you remember from earlier in the movie it was said that one person was made to stand in the corner while the other person was killed.

Question: I always partially catch this movie on TV. There's one thing I've never figured out. Near the end of the movie, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson are trapped on top of the bomb on the ship, and Willis gets free but Jackson drops the lock pick. Exactly how does he break Jackson out of the handcuffs? It always seems as if there's some sort of electrical jolt involved, but I just can't figure out how that's supposed to open the cuffs.

Chosen answer: Bruce Willis use a couple of drops of the explosive residue and blows the handcuffs apart. Watch it again and see how he stabs the container.

The Dogs of War - S5-E2

Question: How did they find Zoe and who kidnapped her? At first they said that the Bahii were taking responsibility for it, then Leo tells Will that they never found the Bahii sleepers. Also, the man on the helicopter tells the President and the First Lady that Zoe was dropped off on the side of a road and she called 911 on her cell phone, then, later, on the ground, another man tells the Bartletts that they found her tied up in a closet. What really happened?

Chosen answer: One of the kidnappers was having an argument with his girlfriend and dumped her. She called 911 about Zoe.

The One With The Cop - S5-E16

Question: What is all that stuff with "Zippowitz" and the "Kid from Silver Spoons" about? Who are those two?

Chosen answer: These are references to the TV show NYPD Blue. Deputy Andy Sipowicz is the name of one of the characters, whilst another character (Deputy Danny Sorenso) is played by Rick Schroder who previously starred in the show Silver Spoons.

Question: Did John Belushi do all the dancing, especially the turnovers in church, by himself or was it a double?

Chosen answer: It was a double, and the "making of" documentary on the DVD shows this.

David Mercier

To be fair, John did do a lot of flips and dancing as Jake; just not all of them in the movie

Question: What is the song that plays at the end of the movie in the scene where Evan is in New York City and continues into the credits. Also, who is it by?

Chosen answer: "Stop crying your heart out" by Oasis.

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Question: Did Rachel ever find out that Chandler was the one who told Ross that he's in love with her (The One Where Rachel Finds Out)? Wouldn't Ross want to know when/how she started liking him?

Chosen answer: Season 2, Episode 7 "The One Where Ross Finds Out". Rachel gets drunk on a date and calls Ross - she leaves a message on his answering machine telling him she's "over him". Ross checks his messages in Rachel's apartment, while on his way to get a cat with Julie. He says "you're over me? When were you...under me?" and asks how she found out. Rachel tells him that Chandler told her, to which Ross replies, "when did he when did he, when did he...?"

Question: I know that when you are near the One Ring you are tempted and once you put it on then you become addicted/obsessed with it. Once you put the Ring on, as you move closer to Mordor and Mt. Doom then the temptation to have it becomes stronger, is this true?

Chosen answer: It's not entirely the case - the Ring begins to work on you from the moment you start to possess it, and the temptation increases with the passage of time, until it becomes impossible to give up the Ring - it's notable that Bilbo is the only person ever to voluntarily give it up after owning it. Proximity to Mordor probably has only a minor effect - time, and probably the relative power of Sauron, are more relevant.

Question: How do the hockey mask, clothes and machete appear when Jason is reborn through Diana's body, not to mention how was he was reborn to the exact decomposed state he died in?

Dan Moat

Chosen answer: Evil magic.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: Of course he would be reborn exactly like he was before he was blown apart. Which is why he needed a blood relative to do so.

Question: Does anyone know what the scene with the chicken is all about? Where did the chicken come from, and is it supposed to represent anything?

Krista

Chosen answer: If you watch the commentary on the movie they discuss this, they explain that the guy who played the mom's boyfriend came up to them and just started doing that thing with the chicken and they thought it was funny so they put it in the movie.

Question: What is the song that plays from the middle to the end of the trailer?

Nick N.

Chosen answer: That music is taken from Dragonheart composed by Randy Edelman.

Question: In the end credits, there are seven stuntmen listed, b ut I can only think of four. Can you please tell me what all of the stunts are?.

Chosen answer: Reshooting certain scenes would most likely necessitate new stunt people, as the first one(s) would most likely be hard to get back.

Question: I don't know all the ins and outs of the law, but when Erin is in a car accident, she is going straight through a green light. The other guy rams into her as he tries to cross the intersection (it's not like he just cut her off making a right turn) so obviously he had a red light and not even an arguable right of way. I know money can buy you justice, but how is this not an open and shut case?

Krista

Chosen answer: I have to admit that is a bit frustrating to watch. I think that?s how the producers wanted us to feel. Making us think, "Man this chick never gets a break". It was just an unrealistic way to set up the character's life.

Question: Where have I seen the actress who plays Noah's film student assistant/girlfriend before? She looks so familiar.

Josh Appelbaum

Question: What exactly was wrong with Forney's sister? I know he said she started drinking when he was younger but why did she have to be taken care of all the time?

Chosen answer: She has been drinking since she was younger, and died from alchohol related disease.

Question: How did Jack escape from the marooned island the first time? His explanation was something about rum and trade routes but I didn't understand it.

iceverything776

Chosen answer: Traders had been storing their goods on the island, hidden in the bunker. When he was first on the island he simply got a lift with them on their ship when they came to collect their goods. Now however the bunker is empty and he knows that the traders won't be back.
