Anger Management - S4-E5

Question: Logan almost became angry for each prank Zoey, Dustin and James played on him. However, why didn't they get into any trouble for the pranks they did on him, especially the paint splattering prank?

Show generally

Question: If Dustin, Dana, and James don't appear in a lot of episodes in the show, why are they still considered main characters?

Chosen answer: Dustin was only considered a main character from season 1-3, and probably just because he's Zoey's brother. Dana was only a main character for season 1 and James didn't become a main character until season 4.

Question: During the attack of the fireflies, with the bridge and the vehicles, especially the digger, crashing down, why weren't they strong enough to wake up the dormant volcano?

Roman Curiel

Question: In the movie and in most of the live shows Christine is brunette but I have heard that in the original book she is blonde. Is that true and if so, do you know where in the book they say it?

Chosen answer: In the English translation I've read (I have not read the original French version); in chapter V, The Enchanted Violin, when the old man is telling the story, it reads "Raoul looked at Christine's blue eyes and golden hair". It should be noted that Christine is Swedish and black hair is uncommon among the Swedes.

Question: Why does George go to find Dennis since he hates him? Did he also expect Dennis to listen to him after he had just scolded Dennis?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He doesn't hate Dennis and does not want anything to happen to him. He's just a rather crotchety old man who is annoyed by a precocious kid. He may not expect Dennis to listen to him, but he at least makes the effort to reach out as most adults would.

Question: Jim and Michelle had been dating since the end of Jim's first year of college. Isn't it strange that in all that time he hadn't met Michelle's parents until the day of the engagement party? Jim and Michelle went to the same high school, so her parents must have lived reasonably close by.

Question: Shaw killed a bunch of people in the military hospital his brother was held in, along with cooperating with terrorists, and killing Han. For helping the team, is he basically pardoned for everything?

Chosen answer: It looks like he has been pardoned and forgiven because he saved the baby at the end.

Question: If the bus driver saw Dana choking Roy on the bus, why didn't she say or do anything about it? Also, if Roy got in trouble for breaking Dana's nose, why didn't Dana himself get in trouble for choking Roy?

Question: A flashback showed that the Fabrication Machine was taken from the scientist before he can give it life. If he did get to give the machine life, then create the stitchpunks, would that mean he wouldn't be able to create 9, dying after giving life to 8?

Question: In the Seamstress battle, the Seamstress had 2's upper body attached to her tail so she can hypnotize the stitchpunks. Using her blade, 7 was attempting to fight her, but if she threw her weapon at 2, and chopped his body off the Seamstress' tail, was 7 possibly battling 2 as well?

New this month Answer: No, because 2 was already dead and 7 never had a disliking for 2.

Question: In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, when the Room of Requirement is found, it is a practically small empty room so that the students have enough room to practice their magic. But why in this movie, when looking for Ravenclaw's diadem, is it suddenly an enormous room filled with what seems like centuries of stuff? Since the room changes to fit the person's needs and Harry, Hermione and Ron were so desperate to find it, wouldn't it be easier for the room to simply be empty and small so they can find it more quickly?

Chosen answer: They wanted to find the room that held the diadem. The room simply provided it for them. The original room that held the diadem was big and full of stuff because it needed to be hidden inside it. The room of requirement can't change the location of items within it.

Question: Are there Slytherins who fought in the battle of Hogwarts? JK Rowling said that the reinforcements from Slughorn was Slytherin. Although it was not mentioned in the book and in the movie. But is this true that the reinforcements are Slytherin?

Answer: Since JK Rowling is the author and said that Slytherins are the reinforcements of Slughorn, then it is most likely true that there were Slytherins who fought in the battle.

DFirst1

Chosen answer: All the Slytherin students were in the dungeons. Slughorn definitely was a Slytherin as stated in the book. And unless you explicitly mean fighting on the Hogwarts side, everyone on Voldemort's side is Slytherin.

Strength - S1-E10

Question: The gorilla is said to possibly be able to lift two family cars, which weighs over 2090kg. If it can, then why is it only number 8 in the countdown while the rhinoceros beetle is number 1?

Chosen answer: They based it on how much they can lift in relation to their body weight. A Rhinoceros Beetle can lift 850 times its own body weight, which would be equivalent to a Gorilla lifting 255 tons (over 100 times more than 2,090 kg).

Question: After Flynn decides to give his satchel to the Stabbington Brothers so they can give him a boost, how did he obtain the satchel when he was climbing them?

Chosen answer: We are not shown exactly how he gets the satchel back for comedic purposes. Presumably he just reached around and quickly grabbed it as he was climbing.

Question: Molluck should've known that if he successfully made the Mudokon Pops, he would soon no longer have any more of the Mudokon slaves to make the remaining amount of Paramite Pies or Scrab Cakes. Why didn't he consider this?

Question: If Abe's Exoddus takes place right after the events of Abe's Oddysee, why is Abe's voice deeper than it was originally?

Question: Throughout the whole film series, how is it that Bludsworth knows how to cheat Death and if the main characters are supposed to die, then why does he tell them how to do it?

Answer: Bludsworth's backstory has never been addressed in the series. He seems to have an intimate understanding of the supernatural nature of death but how he knows this is never explained. Why he gives the characters advice is also never explained, however he seems to be legitimately interested in whether or not the characters will succeed in cheating death because it seems to be impossible.
