Friday the 13th Part 2

Question: What was that first body in the woods that looked like Muffin? It couldn't have been Muffin because she shows up at the end right?

1

Answer: It never really says what the body is, but I'd assume it were a rabbit or some other small woodland creature. It can't be Muffin because, like you said, Muffin appears later on.

Question: In the original ending, Mrs. Vorheese opens her eyes and smiles. People say that this would indicate that Jason had killed Paul. How would that indicate that he had killed Paul?

1

Answer: Simple, it was her response to how Ginny was screaming for Paul, indicating that Jason fufilled her will and disposed of him.

Question: Why did Jason Voorhees not tell his mother he was alive? This sequel shows he's alive, and she wouldn't be murdering people if she knew he wasn't dead.

Athletic Jason

Answer: The way I understand it, they just never crossed paths again after his incident. She's not exactly been hanging out around the lake where he went under. Jason has some heavy mental issues to boot and wouldn't know how to find her till it was too late. He was a lost scared little boy.

Question: This movie shows Jason Voorhees didn't drown in Crystal Lake in the first movie because he's shown to be alive in this movie. It's a known fact that the kid Jason Voorhees can't swim, so how exactly did he avoid drowning in Crystal Lake?

Athletic Jason

Answer: This particular film does not address this, and seems to imply that Jason didn't drown and grew up living in the woods as a psychopath. Later sequels heavily imply (or outright state) that Jason was brought back as an un-dead creature by unknown supernatural means and cannot be killed in a conventional sense. As it stands it is best to view Jason in this film as un-dead, as the number of films that show him as supernatural far outweigh those that show him as a normal man. The character is generally remembered in popular culture as un-dead.

What information in this sequel gives any indication that the kid Jason didn't drown in Crystal Lake?

Athletic Jason

The fact that he's a full-grown man instead of a young boy. The fan consensus, and the original intent of the filmmakers, is that Jason is a human being, albeit extremely tough and completely insane, in parts 2-4, and comes back as an undead being in part 6.

That's valid along with the small house in the woods, except that doesn't explain how a kid that can't swim didn't drown in Crystal Lake.

Athletic Jason

Luck, misinformation, etc. Yes it's vague, but a lack of explanation doesn't entirely constitute a mistake.

Answer: That is indeed a plot hole, and up to speculation. The best guess is that Jason somehow made his way ashore, and chose to hide in the woods rather than face further bullying from the rest of the kids.

Question: At the beginning the 2 kids call Ted to get directions, but when they see their truck being towed, they leave the phone, and chase the tow truck. The truck is taken right around the corner, and Ted is outside, waiting for them. There were no pay phones showing where Ted was, and no cell phones, so how did Ted call them, and get to be right around the corner so fast?

Answer: Probably from inside the building he was standing in front of.

Continuity mistake: When Scott is dancing with the dog, in the shots from inside the cabin, the collar on his shirt is up. But from the shots outside the cabin looking in, his collar is down. (00:26:50)

Paul: Ginny, put your car on the lot, okay? This place is starting to look like a Burger King. Um, where was I?
Ted: You were about to give your "Let's keep our shit together" speech.

More quotes from Friday the 13th Part 2

Trivia: An actor/stuntman named Steve Dash actually played Jason in almost every scene, but was crestfallen when he found out he wouldn't be given on-screen credit for the role. Due to some studio red-tape, the actor credited for portraying Jason was Warrington Gillette, a stand-in who only appeared on-screen for a brief instance. (Gillette portrayed the "Unmasked Jason" under heavy makeup, who leaps through the window at the end of the film and is only on-screen for about 20 seconds.) Dash was understandably upset, as he put in almost all the work to create and play the character, but got no reward and was only credited as being Jason's stunt-double. When archival footage from this film was re-used in the next two installments in flashback, Dash was finally given the proper credit he deserved and was given sole credit for portraying Jason via archival footage.
