Question: When Greg, Pam and their parents are in the garden drinking, one of them gets onto the fact that Greg is an only child. Jack says to Greg 'You said you had a sister. You milked your sister's cat'. Then Greg looks at him strangely and looks away. I never get that. Why did he lie about having a sister?

Question: In the trivia section, it mentions that Will Ferrel had a few minor accidents in a tunnel, what accidents did he have?
Question: What is up with the corpse in the woman's basement, and how did it get there?
Question: At the end of this episode, when they are performing the "soap opera" for Calculon's benefit, Leela is dressed in a black dress and blonde wig with sunglasses. This ensemble looks really familiar to me, for some reason, and I wondered if it was perhaps a parody or homage to a well known soap character/actor/plot. Can anyone clue me in? And, on that note, is Fry's character of 'Congo Jack' a parody of something or just a stereotypical soap character?
Question: Why does Herbie have the number 53? Is there a special reason for this number?
Question: Is it true that there are going to be two sequels to 'Fantastic 4'?
Question: I am looking for the name of an episode. In it, a girl riding a horse finds two dead bodies in a pipe. They were sisters, one of which did nothing but order clothing on-line. It turned out that the other sister killed her, and her boyfriend, an ex-prisoner whose screen name was Apollo, killed the other sister. Any ideas?
Question: I never really understood the point of injecting the needle into your heart if you come into contact with the chemical. Doesn't the chemical eat away at your skin? If so, does the injection somehow instantly stop the gas from eating away at your skin? Or did I just imagine the whole thing about it eating your skin?
Question: During the course of the film we see the "Tripods" spill out an orange colored liquid. What is that fluid supposed to be?
Question: I'm having trouble working Ted and Mort's confrontation at the gas station into the narrative. Throughout the scene, Ted acts as if he knows all the events that have afflicted Mort vis-a-vis Shooter (he reacts to the dead dog, he says "I admit that most of what has been happening is my fault," etc.). But then it turns out that it was all Mort's doing, that John Shooter didn't exist, and that Ted had absolutely nothing to do with it. The scene, therefore, is decidedly strange. It is not in Mort's imagination, as in a later scene Ted still has an aching hand from punching the car. Anybody have an idea?
