New today Question: Why wasn't Mrs Weasley at the Quidditch world cup?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New today Answer: There wasn't a specific reason given, but in the books, she was not particularly a quidditch fan and was also rather fed up dealing with George and Fred's continuous pranks. She may have preferred having some quiet time at home.

Size Matters - S4-E5

New today Question: At the end of this episode Leo goes outside to heal the glass from the sign of P3. In a previous episode (Season 3 - The Magic Hour) when Christopher is injured in owl form he explains he can't heal animals. An animals genetic makeup would be a lot more similar to a human's, so why can Leo heal glass but not animals?

New today Answer: There are a lot of factors involved in who and what types of injuries can be healed, or can't be healed, by a Whitelighter, so their powers are limited. The ability to "heal" glass and clothes is more of a a mending or restoring ability. But, the trigger for healing is love, so it seems (with speculation) this "Love trigger" only applies to human-to-human love. In addition, there are restrictions for Whitelighters and they're only suppose to heal wounds inflicted by evil, so it's possible animal injuries aren't caused by evil and thus can't be healed.

New this week Question: What is the name of the melody that Mia Farrow sings (La La La Laaaa, La La La Lalala La Laaaaa) at the beginning of the movie, as the title/credits are being displayed?

Shipper

New this week Answer: It doesn't have a specific title. It was a lullaby written for the film by Krzysztof Komeda. There's a few variations of the lullaby heard throughout the film, the opening credits version is listed as "Rosemary's Baby Main Theme - Vocal."

New this week Question: In the beginning of the movie after Carrie goes home after starting her period, her mother starts reading from something about God cursing Eve with blood and the first sin was intercourse. Does anybody know what she was reading from? I can't find it in the Bible, and it doesn't look like that's the kind of book she was holding.

New this week Answer: It seems completely made up for the movie, especially the line "the raven was called sin." In the movie she's holding what looks to be a religious pamphlet, but it's not anything from a real book. In the remake of the film, after her mother says "the curse was the curse of blood", Carrie adds "that's not even in the Bible."

Driven to Tears/Rule of Dumb - S4-E17

New this week Question: Exactly how did Patrick get his licence when he can't even remember his own parents half the time?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this week Answer: I think that this was supposed to be an intended joke. Patrick is too stupid to remember or achieve most things and SpongeBob is able to remember and achieve most things, but the one thing that SpongeBob cannot achieve, is the one thing Patrick can achieve on the first go.

Casual Person

New this week Question: In one of the last parts it says that Bella was on the phone with James. But somehow Alice didn't hear James talking even though she was in the same room with Bella. But why?

New this week Question: I can't quite read what book Indy's college associate friend pulls out of his desk right before his wedding and I was wondering what it was.

New this week Answer: It is a Christian Book of Common Prayer, which contains the Marriage Ceremony, Funeral Ceremony, Baptism Ceremony, etc. The gilt lettering on the spine plainly reads "Common Prayer"; and, indeed, the shot of this book immediately transitions to a shot of the Book of Common Prayer from which the minister performs the wedding ceremony for Indy and Marion.

Charles Austin Miller

We might speculate that it's the same Book of Common Prayer used to perform the funeral ceremonies for Marcus Brody and Henry Jones Sr., whose deaths were briefly referenced early in the film.

New this week Question: How did the townspeople know about the murders?

New this week Answer: Sheriff Newsome was actively investigating the disappearances of Amy and Ted, as well as Tom Greenleaf and private investigator, Ken Karsch. Newsome confronted Mort about it and knew enough to tie all four cases together. He would talk to the local residents regarding anything they might know. While these were still technically missing person cases, it was obvious to most that Mort had probably murdered them.

New this week Question: Has there ever been an explanation as to why the number "57" appears throughout the film? The number appears specifically three times: Ripley was floating in space for 57 years, the sentry guns have a model number of 571, and 157 colonists were killed. It just seems like the number comes up too many times to be a coincidence.

New this week Question: Why is Paul on active prison guard duty with a debilitating medical condition, as opposed to some form of sick leave, or at the very least a desk job? On several occasions we see him either made vulnerable or even out-and-out helpless.

dizzyd

New this week Answer: He's one of those people who is dedicated to his job and will say he is OK even when he isn't, and keep working. He will power through and not let anyone know how sick he really is.

New this week Question: What was the green stuff on Aquaman's hand and on his cup when he was drinking in the bar?

New this week Answer: Parademon blood, from when one hit the boat.

New this week Question: What exactly is the drum technique that Daniel defeats Chosen with?

New this week Answer: The technique, much like the crane kick in the first movie, was made up for the film. If you are asking what exactly Daniel is doing when he performs the move; he is blocking with one arm, striking with the opposite hand and rapidly switching sides. The move works as a metaphor for the overall theme of the entire series: balance.

Jiu-Jitsu, Bubble Wrap, and Yoo-Hoo - S1-E17

New this week Question: Why does the girl who keeps going after Sheldon go after him at all? She looks at him like she just hates his guts and would love to kill him, but why? I know that bullies go after the weaker people but she seems to act like Sheldon ruined her life or something.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this week Question: Why didn't Julie tell Wendy that she was on the rollercoaster and then thank her for the warning that led her and her friend to get off? I just find it really odd that Julie never bothered to tell her own sister that she was on the ride.

New this week Answer: Because Julie and her friend weren't supposed to be at the fairground in the first place, only the students that were graduating were meant to be there, and she and her friend were juniors.

Season 1 generally

New this week Question: I've probably missed something, but at one point Michael rescues Sarah from the very room that they are trying to access for the escape - why didn't they use that route to get there?

Beach Boy Bingo - S2-E6

New this week Question: When The Beach Boys visit the Tanner home, Michelle is there with them. When they are at the concert, she is nowhere to be seen. Did they leave her alone at home?

New this week Answer: She was left at home most likely with a babysitter.

New this week Question: Why did the nurse drown Kimberly in her dream? What connection do the baby, nurse and Kimberly have?

New this week Answer: Dr Kallarjian (I think that's the correct spelling) looks as though she is attempting to murder Kimberly in her premonition. Kimberly herself says a nurse was trying to choke her. As we later see, the medical professional is just trying to resuscitate Kimberly, she just has a bizarre look on her face, like she wants to murder Kimberly. As to your second question, only new life (Isabella's baby) can defeat death.

What's Past is Prologue - S1-E13

New this week Question: Why are Joann Owosekun and Rhys still wearing the Terran uniform while everyone else on the ship has switched to the Federation's as they were supposed to?

New this week Question: Has anyone counted how many rounds Skurge fires near the end? They seem like regular M16's with only a 30-round magazine in them, and it seems like he shot off more than 60 total rounds. Plus he said he got them from Texas, so it's not like they were enchanted Asgardian weapons. Or do the comics mention anything about earth bound weapons gaining some sort of extended/unlimited ammo capacity that this scene is a nod to?

Bishop73

New this week Answer: There's no mention in the movie that the weapons have been enchanted or improved so it is probably just the usual heroic movie convention of 'bottomless magazines'.

New this week Question: Not sure this is a movie mistake. When the mom is sawing off her own head, wouldn't the sawing have stopped once she cut through her spinal cord? The muscles in her arms/hands would have gone limp and her head would not completely fall off - though it would fall forward. You don't actually see her head fall but you hear the bang on the floor and her head is missing at the end.

odelphi

New this week Answer: There were supernatural forces at work, so basic rules of human anatomy and physics don't really apply in the situation.
