Ghosts 'R' Us - S1-E4

Question: What was the wizard's intention of capturing the Mario Bros. and Princess?

Question: What type of dress is the red dress Sophie wears when Alex makes her talk to Sloan?

Luka Keats

Question: Why did the young Michael withdraw just before meeting Hanna in the prison? Was it because it was too painful for him to meet his love face-to-face when she was in such a pathetic situation? OR, was it because he didn't want to let her know that he could discover her secret (as his original intention to meet was to seek her permission to expose it in court), which could break her much more than the trial, as that's what she has been hiding for many many years?

Question: When Mr. Matuschek is recovering in the hospital and explaining to Mr. Kralik why he suspected him of having an affair with his wife, he mentions having received an anonymous letter warning him of his wife's infidelity. But who sent the letter? To all appearances, the errand boy Pepi seems to know everything that is going on, or nearly so. He doesn't know the cad is Mr. Vadas, but he probably has a good idea about what is going on from Mrs. Matuschek's phone calls. Still, the author of the anonymous letter to Mr. Matuschek is never revealed. Or is he?

Day 5: 6:00 AM - 7:00 AM - S5-E24

Question: How did Jack get kidnapped by the Chinese, beaten to a pulp and end up on a ship in the middle of the ocean in about 10 minutes?

Peter Kneil

Question: How did Sylas get back to Dayton with only 30 minutes after the crash?

Season 4 generally

Question: In season 3, they were setting up how it was probably going to be Mendoza running for the Republicans. Is there any particular reason they chose Conway instead of Mendoza? (Be it behind the scenes or not).

Friso94

Question: How did the box get out of the cement in part 3 and into a pillar in part 4?

Question: Why were Hesher and Nicole having sex? Had they become close enough to want each other or was Nicole really a prostitute like TJ accused her of being and needed the money? Or did Hesher just go around there and force the issue telling her he wanted her and forcing himself onto her?

Question: Christine needs $10,000 for a dangerous seance, so she goes to the shed to gather up some items to pawn, whereupon she again encounters Lamia (as Mrs. Ganush). Christine uses her ice skate to slash a rope that conveniently drops a 100-lb blacksmith's anvil on the demon's head. After the demon vanishes, the anvil, rope and chain are seen on the floor where they fell, so it wasn't just a fantasy sequence. Why does petite little Christine Brown (or anybody, for that matter) have a 100-lb blacksmith's anvil suspended 8 feet in the air with rope and chain out in the shed?

Question: What's the time frame of the show?

Show generally

Question: I need to know in which season and episode of House the following monologue took place. A dying patient is lying in bed and complaining about the chaplain who came by to visit him. The patient says that he wants to see a hell-fire and brimstone preacher, someone who believes in judgement and Hell, and who won't deny all the rotten things he'd done in life.

Gregory K.

Question: After Alex has stolen his furniture and killed Claire, he says to Michael "OK, now we are even." So why did he continue to stalk him and plant evidence? What was his motivation there?

Gavin Jackson

Question: We all know The Headmaster and Derek Jr. are gone from the orphanage because The Headmaster is actually the Evil DJ and he kidnapped Derek Jr. But, why exactly is the orphanage in despair and where are the rest of the staff and students?

Question: I might be mistaking this question for another movie (but I'm sure it's this one)... when this movie was first released in theaters, I vaguely remember a scene where one crewman yelled "go to commercial" and another crewperson said something like "we already had (some big number) commercials, stand-bys..." and other things in the sentence related to a big delay of the show. When this movie was recently on cable, I watched it and never found this scene in it, but remember this in 1982. Was this scene edited out in recent years, or am I mistaking this scene with another movie?

Question: How did Peter Lake know Beverly's name? It was never given when they first met (at least in the movie). When he rescues her, he calls her by name.

Question: What kind of sailboat (designer/brand) is Fox III?

Question: The credits for Hot Shots Part Deux mentions "footage of Home Alone 2." I'm missing something and can't see it. Does anybody know where in Part Deux this appears please? Thanks in advance.

Neil Jones

Question: Three questions: 1. Does Ig have his name cleared? 2. What happens to Veronica the waitress after Ig gets revenge on her? 3. How come Ig's parents hate him and do they even miss him at all after his death?

Question: In the ant-attack scene, why did the Russians decide to back their truck up to the edge of the cliff and then use ropes to escape over the cliff to an uncertain fate? This defies logic. They still had at least one working vehicle (the truck) that had just engaged in a high-speed chase - they could have easily jumped aboard the truck and quickly driven out of the danger zone.
