Question: When the guy robs Cher, why doesn't he take her jewellery too? He only takes her bag and phone.

Answer: We have no way of knowing why the robber did not take her jewelry. He may have thought it was cheap costume jewelry and not worth bothering about, unlike her bag and phone.

Question: Why did Slughorn even tell Tom Riddle about Horcruxes in the first place?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Because he made a foolish mistake, not realizing what Riddle intended to do. He was assuming at the time that it was a hypothetical conversation. Horcruxes were not a secret, and there was no reason not to tell a student about different types of Dark magic, and Riddle already knew much about it. He was seeking additional information.

Season 7 generally

Question: Just what size relationship would the dragon eggs be compared to the adults? In season one, we see the eggs as being roughly the size of eggplants or a child's football, at the start of Season 7, the dragons thereof have grown to 747 (whale?) size. Just how big would the laying mother have been? Even if she reproduced in the equivalent of a teenage pregnancy, the size of the dragons in past seasons, her offspring would have been dust motes compared to her. If Season 7 represents them fully-grown (and think about it if they are not!), the dragon's biological mother would have been truly gargantuan compared to her offspring.

Answer: In the universe shown in this series, dragons can technically grow indefinitely. They continue to grow throughout their lives. They will stop growing, however if they live in captivity in a confined space. There is therefore no standard size for an adult dragon.

Unrest at the Nursery! - S15-E47

Question: Why did Vullaby run away from the nursery? Was it because of Layla hurting her feelings?

Question: Were any Japanese killed by the bombardment by the battleships?

Question: Why did Ultron kill Strucker?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Ultron is doing what he was programmed to do: produce peace on Earth. Strucker opposed that, so Ultron killed him once gaining information about Hydra's base in Sokovia.

Answer: To get the twins on his side.

Question: Where did all of the kids' parents go that required babysitters for the entire night? Seems like a small town such as Haddonfield would not have many options.

Answer: Annual Halloween party as evidenced in the following instalment. Dr Mixtner was drunk and was at a party. The Strodes were also at a party, the same one if I recall correctly as the doctor.

Alan Keddie

Also we only SEE two families have babysitters. Other families could have had babysitters. We just don't see this. (I'm not sure if this adds anything additionally to the question asked, tho).

Alan Keddie

Answer: There are only two families that hire babysitters in the film, the Doyle and Wallace families. Where they went is never explained, but it could be potentially anywhere. They could have gone on a trip out of town for the night, they don't have to be in Haddonfield.

Question: Ron said that Mrs Weasley invited Harry for Christmas weeks ago but why did she not invite Hermione at that point?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Hermione always spent Christmas with her parents. The Weasleys invited Harry so that he would not have to stay at Hogwarts over the school break. He never spent the Christmas holiday with his aunt and uncle.

Question: Why does Laurie drop off mail (that her father gave her) to the Myers house, which is abandoned? Why bring mail to an abandoned house?

rainbowriot

Answer: Laurie's father, Mason Strode, is a realtor who owns Strode Real Estate, and there's a realty sign post in the front yard of the old Myers house. Mason tells Laurie, "They're coming by to look at it later," so we know he's talking about people interested in buying the old property. When Michael sniffs the envelope we see the Strode Real Estate logo, and it presumably contains realtor's paperwork which is pertinent to the sale of the house, and is meant for the people who will be coming by later.

Question: What kind of animal is Priscilla?

Answer: Cactus mouse.

Bishop73

If you have the DVD watch the "Animals of dirt" in special features. She is an eye-eye. Found in Madagascar.

If the DVD says she suppose to be an aye-aye (there's no animal called an eye-eye), then she is terribly drawn. 1) Aye-ayes have long, skinny fingers, with an extended middle finger. 2) Aye-ayes have bushy tails, not the thin tail Priscilla has. 3) Aye-ayes are primates and Priscilla appears to be a rodent.

Question: Since the Mudokons, Scrabs, Paramites and Meeches have meat muscles in their bodies to make meat, is it possible that the Sligs and Glukkons do as well?

Question: When Banjo and Kazooie take Gobi's water for the third time, he tells them he's going to the Lava World. Where is this?

Answer: From what I remember, there was suppose to a "lava world" in banjo-kazooie but never came to be. So in the sequel game, Banjo-Tooie, the lava world became half of hailfire peaks where gobi can be found, with a beard, after you rescue him from witchyworld, first, of course.

Question: How was the guy in Amanda Young's original game supposed to survive? He was sedated and couldn't really move enough, so how was he supposed to get out of being stabbed?

Answer: Yes, he was meant to die. It was Amanda's test not his. Just like in alll the other movies those who are being tested are often responsible for the death of others who don't have a choice in the matter (Saw VI for example when the guy has to choose which coworker is hung and which isn't).

Question: Why does the Emperor contact Darth Vader and tell him about Luke Skywalker, when Vader has already been searching for Luke since the beginning of the movie?

Answer: The Emperor knows that Vader is aware of Luke. He contacts Vader to tell him to kill Luke when he is found. Vader, however suggests he be captured instead and turned to the dark side. The Emperor questions whether turning Luke is even possible to which Vader states "He will join us or die.", meaning if he fails he fully intends to go through with the Emperors plan of killing Luke.

Question: When she discovers the cans are all in order, why doesn't she run out the back door which is right there? Why does she run to the front door?

Answer: There's no way to know what she was thinking or why she chose to do that. She was panicked and reacted on impulse rather than logic. One thought, going to the front door is the most direct route to the main street where she could get to a neighbor or find other people more quickly. Backyards are more secluded and dangerous.

Question: At the end when Fudge, Percy and the rest arrived at the ministry why did Voldemort leave, since none of them are powerful enough to harm him?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Some of the most powerful wizards arrived at the ministry along with Fudge, among them a lot of Aurors. They hunt dark wizards like Voldemort and together they are certainly powerful enough to harm him. Dumbledore was still there as well.

Question: Why don't the other emotions let Sadness use the console to make Riley sad? Is this why Sadness thinks she isn't a needed emotion?

Answer: Joy was determined to keep Riley happy. To do so meant to keep the others away. But especially Sadness.

Lois Comes Out of Her Shell - S11-E6

Question: There was a scene where Sheldon held a lighter and put his hand over it, what was he trying to do exactly? Scare off Stewie?

HEK_98

Answer: It was mainly done to intimidate Stewie and show Stewie how crazy he is and how tough he is. There's a similar scene from "Lethal Weapon" where Mr. Joshua puts his arm over a guy's lighter to intimidate him and show how he's impervious to pain.

Bishop73

Question: How accurate is the Normandy invasion scene? Was the real battle as dramatic as shown in the movie?

Answer: Definitely, the scene was praised for its historical accuracy by veterans and WWII experts. Even the landing crafts were real. Not on all beaches this kind of resistance was happening though, like Utah beach.
