Question: When Doctor Brennan is examining the victim's skull, she states that a "straight suture across the palatine bone" indicates that the victim was a native Japanese speaker. I've studied linguistics, but I've never heard of a person's native language actually affecting their anatomy. So, for example: would a person of Japanese heritage who was born and raised in the US and spoke only English be distinguishable from a person who grew up in Japan and spoke only Japanese, purely by their palatine bones?

Question: When Snake and the others run away from the WTC, is the building an accurate representation of the real building(s)? I can find lots of images online of WTC 1& 2, and they appear to have the columns all the way to the ground, where in the movie, the ground level is about 20 feet high with no columns. (01:21:55)

Question: There is a piece of music that you can hear for just a split second when Mr. Blond is tuning through the radio stations looking for K. Billy's super sounds of the 70s (right before he tortures the cop). The exact same piece of music is also heard for a split second in Kill Bill Vol 2 when the camera is looking down on the bride's body in the church. What song is this piece of music from?

Question: In the nightclub scene, Tony goes into the bathroom with a girl and they begin making out. it's obvious they are about to have sex. The movie cuts to a different moment in a montage for a moment, then back to Tony and the girl. Suddenly he is jumping up from between her legs and screaming and runs out of the bathroom really quick. What was that all about?

Question: The trailer shows the part when Rogers and his men bust open the factory doors (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JerVrbLldXw at 1:59) and the Captain fires off a few shots. It's a different sound from the one in the movie, and I know it's edited in. I'm just extremely certain that I have heard it somewhere in a video game, and it has been driving me nuts that I can't remember what game it came from. Does anyone here know where I might have heard this gunshot effect before?

Question: When Martin threw Will's phone out to sea in anger, was it just in anger about what happened? Or was it just an excuse to do so, like thinking his enemies would be tracking them via Will's phone?

Question: During the scene where the kids are eating in the diner and they are talking about the train crash, you can see Joe's father getting out of his police car across the street at the Auto Sales lot. I've noticed in movies that they don't usually have a major character appear in a scene without a reason, even in the background. So it makes me wonder if they cut out some interaction with Joe's father in the diner, or if this diner scene was originally intended to appear at a different point in the film, such as when Joe's father visits the car lot when the owner is complaining about things missing from his cars. I've watched my DVD many times, and I only just noticed this. Now I'm dying to know.

Question: In which season and episode did Al Bundy recite his poem, "Ode to Jack Lord"? My friends and I were discussing the new Hawaii Five-0 series and why it is no good, Al Bundy's poem was brought up (because we all love Jack Lord) and none of us know when it was aired.

Question: In the scene where Zack visits Laney in her basement while she's painting her mother, what is the song being played in the background? Unless I completely missed it, it cannot be found in the credits nor on a soundtrack. It would be great to know this song.
