Question: When Chitty goes over the cliff and the wings come out, where does the picnic basket on the back go?

Answer: There's no explanation, so any answer is speculation. It could have fallen out of the car as it went over the cliff. Most likely it's a movie mistake, and the picnic basket was overlooked while the close-up portion of the scene was being filmed.

Question: Fagin and the gang want Oliver back out of fear that he might tell about them. But there are some things I don't understand. 1. How long Oliver had been with Brownlow is unknown (Bill says it had been three days since he saw him during the "Who Will Buy" song), but since no police had arrived at the hideout during that time, surely they'd think Oliver hadn't said anything by now. 2. And even if they did think the above, why would they still think Oliver might say something later on? (01:34:50 - 01:37:00)

Chosen answer: They're probably concerned because he's a child. He might unintentionally say something without meaning to, or after some time has passed and more is learned about Oliver's past life at Fagin's hideout, it's conceivable he might be questioned more intensely. A child would likely give more information under pressure.
