Question: I kinda understood the scramble suits that they would wear in the movie to keep their identity secret but I do not understand exactly how they would help. If you had to walk into the office every morning (it would have to be a high security area they worked in) where you would have guards/security and id cards and such to get in, people would know that you worked there simply by watching you entering and leaving the building. The only thing the suits would help with is at public speakings but all they really seem to do is keep your coworkers guessing who you are. You see "Code name guy" walk into room then "regular guy" walk out. Not very hard to figure out. Anybody with a little insight please explain.

Chosen answer: You are working on the assumption that it would be a standard 9-to-5 job and that the same people would be walking in at the same time. Bob Arctor is seen to go in irregularly and "Hank" would also keep irregular hours, much like officers in real-life. James was also seen to enter and exit the building and he was a witness; other witnesses, lawyers, public officials, the medical staff and janitors would also irregularly enter and exit the building. There are simply too many people entering and exiting the building randomly for anyone to definitively figure out who is who, particularly as their real and "suit" identities would be kept as separate as possible, "Hank" only figured out it was Bob because she was Donna. The identities of real-life police officers (particularly officers working undercover, especially on drug-deals) are routinely kept secret and the design of the building that Bob and "Hank" work in would be designed to protect their identities and the scramble-suits would be another layer of protection on top.

Chosen answer: The wording was spelled out in the "making of" book. Someone took the time to reproduce it here: http://www.ee.ryerson.ca/~elf/aso/zeroGtoilet.html.

Trivia: When the father is talking to Hilary Duff in her room about the mother not coming home for two weeks music can be heard playing in the background. Listen closely its a song by Hilary duff that she is listening to.

X-Men 3 (2006)

Question: At the very end of the movie, before the credits, with Magneto playing chess, did he manage to move or knock over the chess piece?It cut to black too quickly for me to see. Were they trying to show that the cure was not permanent?

Spaceboy_007

Chosen answer: The piece did move, very very slightly. I'd argue that the cure is generally permanent, but perhaps with someone of Magneto's power the X gene can't be permanently suppressed, and will slowly regenerate itself through his body, gradually restoring him to full strength.

Question: What is meant by "We don't need no stinking baggers" line in the movie?

Spaceboy_007

Chosen answer: It's making fun of "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!" which is an often referenced 'quote' from "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (Actually, the real line is "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges.", but that's the way people say it.)

Question: In the old TV show do the girls ever meet Charlie or find out more information about him?

Chosen answer: in the last episode of the show Let Our Angel Live (6/24/81), Kelly is shot in the head and the other angles and Bosley go to the hospital. The Angels finally got a sneak peek at what Charlie really looks like when he shows up at the hospital to visit her.

Boobra

Answer: They've never been face to face with Charlie. In S2 E1, Angels in Paradise, Sabrina caught a glimpse of him as he swimmed away, escaping from kidnappers. In S2 E11, Magic Fire, Kris was a magician's assistant. Charlie said, he handed her his pen, for a mind reading trick, but couldn't remember what he looked like. In the final episode, Kelly said, she thought she heard Charlie's voice after surgery but was under heavy medication. It was Bosley who recognized Charlie standing in the background in hospital scrubs.
