Benton Backwards - S7-E4

Question: Benton is holding Reece when his nephew is being examined by Cleo. His suit jacket is pulled over Reece's leg awkwardly like they are covering something. Any idea what?

Question: General Veers was a badass and did not screw up at all on the assault on Hoth. Why promote Piett to Admiral and not Veers?

Answer: General Veers was part of the Imperial Army, hence his command of the ground troops. Piett and Ozzel were members of the Imperial Navy, hence their command of the ships.

To a Better Place - S13-E2

Question: There seems to be an error. When Alvez and J.J. call Reid about Billy's grandma's house, he says Garcia told them after the grandmother died the city said the house wasn't up to code and they don't think anyone is living there. However, the electricity is on in the house. Would the city allow a house not up to code to keep the electricity on? Plus, since Billy doesn't live there and the only resident died, wouldn't the power be shut off anyways, meaning Billy would have to get the power back on in his name (or at least someone living's name)? But if the power is on, why wouldn't Garcia be able to know this and confirm it's likely someone is living there from the power usage? Also, do cities do anything about houses not up to code to prevent people from living or squatting there?

8 Simple Rules for Buying My Teenage Daughter - S4-E8

Question: When everyone was about to vomit, Brian asked Peter to hold his ears but why?

HEK_98

Answer: So he doesn't get vomit on them. It's a joke on how people with long hair would have someone hold their hair.

MasterOfAll

Answer: It's just a humorous riff on women who are about to vomit asking their companions to hold their hair.

Question: Why did Frodo decide to go to Mordor alone with Sam, and not bring the others with him?

Answer: Frodo did not want any more of the Fellowship to risk their lives on his behalf. He felt the ring quest was his burden alone. There was no way Sam was going to be left behind, so Frodo gave in and let him go along.

Question: Do we ever see the wraiths in their true forms?

Answer: Technically what you see is their true form after being corrupted by the rings and turned into wraiths. Before that they were simply men, you can see what is left of that when Frodo puts on the ring at Weather Top.

Question: Why did Sidka sacrifice himself to kill the bear, instead of running and stabbing the bear with his spear? By doing so he only made Kenai try to get revenge on the bear.

Answer: Sitka may not have wanted to harm the bear at all. He doesn't seem to be that kind of a person he sacrificed himself so that the bear could live.

Simpsons Spin-off Showcase - S8-E24

Question: Lisa refuses to appear in the variety comedy show. However, she does relatively "flashy" things in a few other episodes - i.e. participating in a beauty pageant. So I think it's odd that she disagrees with a comedy show. Is there a joke that I am missing?

Answer: Back in 1976, when "The Brady Bunch" cast reunited for "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour" spinoff, Jan (Eve Plumb) declined to join the cast. She stated as her reason that she didn't want to be perpetually known as Jan Brady. She was replaced with actress Geri Reischl. The third segment of this Simpson's episode, titled, "The Simpson Family Smile-Time Variety Hour," was a parody of that show - with its questionably bad jokes and cheesy musical numbers. It also parodied the replacement of one of the children with an alternate cast member.

Question: Aiden says that Katie knew about and talked to him about her death. However, Katie didn't know she was going to die, because she thought the video was a prank. Katie seemed like quite a nervous person/conspiracist, so by her nonchalant conversations in the first scene, it's clear she wasn't fearing her death, so how did she and Aiden talk about her death if she didn't truly realise she was going to die until the 20 minutes or so before?

Answer: Perhaps when Aidan said "she knew she was out of time" or something along those lines the "she" he was referring to was not Katie but Samara talking about Katie.

Answer: I think when Aidan says, "She told me", he's referring to Samara and not to Katie.

Answer: Maybe she is trying to hide the fear from her friend - she cared about her friend and she didn't want her to be afraid.

Question: If the tape was made when the teenagers tried recording a football game over the well (the main theory), then wouldn't that mean that the four teens are the first people to watch/die from it? If so, how does Becca know about the myth of this deadly tape virus and phone call before Katie dies?

Answer: The theory is wrong. The tape was already there.

Question: I find the logic in this movie confusing! How can the mom be pregnant with Boss Baby while he's in Baby Corp? How did he get out of the taxi walking and dancing to the door without the parents noticing yet enter the house with him in their arms? Are babies Suzie, the triplets, and Jimbo also from Baby Corp since they talk and act like Boss Baby? If Suzie is from Baby Corp, would she lose her formula after being "accepted" into kindergarten with a picture of a smiley face? If the Boss Baby quits his job to be part of the Templeton family again, wouldn't he have ended up with some other family unintentionally? Finally, if the Boss Baby came back as a regular baby, why wasn't the mom pregnant?

Answer: Tim is shown to have an extremely active imagination, so he probably just imagined the whole Baby Corp and Puppy Co plots as a way of dealing with the arrival of a new (real) baby brother.

Question: Why wouldn't Schmidt at some point retaliate against Captain Dickson for tasering him in the crotch?

Answer: The captain is quite intimidating. Why would Schmidt want to put himself into more trouble just for a prank?
