Question: When the four girls are at the mall and they see Jason with the girl by the fountain, Regina asks for Gretchen's phone and calls the mother of the girl with Jason. How on earth could Regina have known the phone number?

Answer: I did hear that Patrick Stewart was on the short list of actors to play the role, but he was in demand of both stage and film. He may have been doing X2 at the time.

Question: How did Toulour know the security code to the warehouse where Ocean stored the stolen paintings?

Answer: It was mentioned that he had them under surveillance the entire time. Safe to assume he was always aware of where his paintings were. But taking them back early on would have ruined the con he was trying to pull off on Ocean's crew.

Answer: I always assumed it was because Ocean had broken into Toulour's own vault to give them back. Yet another time Ocean outfoxed him.

Answer: Toulour is a master thief so he manipulated his way into gaining access to the warehouse.

Toolio

Answer: I think that the vault belonged to Le Marc, now the Night Fox knows the entire thing was a setup by Le Marc capitalizing on the Fox's arrogance. Le Marc exploits everyone to regain the egg and his daughter, not to mention get Rusty out of trouble for his daughter's sake and teach his protégé a lesson in humility.

Question: I don't understand the ending bit. Why did Lupin and Sirius Black want to kill Harry, then when Pettigrew turned up they all became friends? It just doesn't make sense to me.

Answer: Neither Lupin nor Black ever wanted to kill Harry. Black was only at Hogwarts to get Pettigrew (in the form of Ron's rat), who he knew to be the real murderer. Lupin thought Black was evil and had killed Harry's parents until the truth came out that it was Pettigrew. Then he sided with Black, renewing their old friendship.

Krista

Answer: Lupin never believed Black was evil or killed Harry's parents. They've always maintained their friendship. When Professor Snape burst in, at the old house, he said, he told Dumbledorf that Lupin was hiding someone on the school grounds. They didn't know who killed Harry's parents until Pettigrew's name appeared on the map.

Yes, he did. Until he saw Pettigrew on the map, Remus was as sure of Sirius' guilt as anyone else was. He says as much in the book.

Question: In the credits it lists the name of the dark haired bride as Verona - it does this in the game as well - but I can't find that name spoken anywhere in the film. Where is it, if anywhere?

Answer: Her name is never spoken, but the two other brides' names, Aleera and Marishka, are spoken.

Mortug

Answer: It's the same as the one in Resevoir Dogs, but I dont know about the one in Pulp Fiction.

Call of the Primitives - S3-E26

Question: When all the animal transformers start to follow the call, Soundwave states that his ejection has activated by itself. After Ravage and Ratbat, who are those other two tapes?

Answer: These two were 'dinosaur' cassettes Overkill and Slugfest, then-new toys. They turn up this once and that's it, though.

Daria Sigma

Question: Who is the guy who looks through Cindy's window at the beginning of the movie and says 'wrong set'?

DaveJB

Question: This is proberbly an American thing, but when Lloyd and Harry are in the diner, they say to the waitress, "Excuse me, Flo" and crack up laughing. Why?

Question: What is the name of that song played in the House of Pain when they first enter the nightclub hall?

Answer: The song is called Tao Of The Machine, and is performed by BT and the Roots. It can be found on the Blade 2 Soundtrack CD.

Migster

Answer: The actors' names do not appear because the actors do not feature in any of the international versions where the voice track is dubbed rather than subtitled. As only their voices are used, not 'live action' performances, the non-english language releases are essentially different movies with a totally different cast list.

Question: If George Lucas had a false page in the script to fool everyone into thinking that Obi-Wan killed Luke's father, then how did he get round the scene between Luke and Vader later (where Luke actually calls Vader 'Father')?

Answer: Everything after the false ending page was hidden from Mark Hamill and the rest of the cast. The scene where Luke calls Vader "father" was filmed after Hamill had already found out the real truth that Vader is Luke's father.
