Question: Why did Mccabe turn against SWAT at the end?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Because he was offered a lot of money. $100 million is a lot of money to turn down for someone on a policeman's salary.

Question: One thing that's been slightly puzzling me since I read the book (and watched the film): Does Rorschach know that he's entering The Comedian's apartment when he breaks in? or does he just go around randomly entering crime scenes?

Sanguis

Chosen answer: He does, in fact, go around snooping around crime scenes. In the comic, he says "Investigated routine homicide. Found costume in Blake's wardrobe. Seems he was the Comedian."

Question: Whatever happened to the 2 cops from the beginning that were in the March hare pursuit vehicle? We never see them again after the beginning. Did they die when their car overturned or what?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Yes, they died. One of the other MFP officers says after the crash that "they're wasted".

Question: There are usually references to the next Pixar film in the film (Nemo in Monsters, Inc, Mr. Incredible in Nemo, Toy Story 3 bear in Up). Is there anything from Wall-e in Ratatouille?

Answer: When Remy is sneaking through a house, he gets barked at by a dog. You only see the dog's shadow, but it is Dug from Up. Have a look on YouTube, many people have posted it.

Answer: Not in the Ratatouille movie itself, however on the DVD/Blu-ray there is a short about how rats are our friends and there is a sequence about how rats will follow us into space, the driver of one of the shuttles is Wall-E himself.

Question: Was there any proof other than Jenny's word that her child was Forrest's child?

Answer: It is implied in many ways, such as the manner in which they sit in front of the TV when they first meet and they way they physically resemble each other. Beyond that, Jenny had never lied to Forrest before and there was no reason to doubt her.

Question: What is the name of the song during the teaser trailer, during the race?

Answer: The song I think you're referring to is Westbound Sign by Green Day.

Question: Something I have always wondered. At the end of the movie, Remy has hundreds of rats cooking the food with him. However, Remy is the rat in the whole flock with a real ability to know how to cook. How did all of the rats cook the food with great ability if they have no cooking experience at all? Remy couldn't have taught them all how to cook or what to do for the recipes.

Answer: He doesn't need to teach them every recipe, just give each one specific tasks to do, like assembly-line workers.

Question: Talking with stripper Candy Doyle, Potter remarks that he still remembers how she used to spin her tassels and that he is reminded of this every time he sees a C 42 revving up. On the net I do find references to a C40A, a C47 and others, but no reference to an aircraft of the time called a C 42. What would he have been referring to?

Answer: The C-42 was a military variant of the Douglas DC-2. Very few C-42's were built, so it's questionable that Potter would specifically have seen that particular model, but, given his military background, it's not entirely unreasonable that he might use the military designation even when the aircraft in question is actually a civilian DC-2.

Show generally

Question: In the Season Two episodes, is Duchess Satine named after the character in the movie "Moulin Rouge" (seeing how that movie stars Ewan McGregor, who played Obi-wan in the SW prequel movies)?

Answer: While it obviously cannot be completely discounted, there is currently no evidence to suggest that this is anything other than coincidence.

Question: When Uncle Buck is going to the party to get Bug, he is stopped at a red light and there are two parents in the car next to him. The father says, "don't go in there with that hat on, they'll kill you". Why would someone be killed for wearing a hat?

Chosen answer: He's being sarcastic, as Buck says in the beginning some of his hats anger a lot of people, which probably connects to when his hat gets taken by one of the teenagers at the party.

Question: I was told that some of this movie was actually shot in Rhyl (North Wales). Since the credits on my downloaded movie were cut, I was wondering if you could help me find an answer to my question. Thank you.

Question: The Millennium Falcon can be seen landing on Coruscant, as it says in the trivia section here. Does anyone know who is supposed to be flying it, seeing how Han is about five to ten years old at this time (and Lando is probably around the same age)?

Answer: According to the book Millennium Falcon, which details the history of the ship, at the time it was known as the Stellar Envoy and was flown by Tobb Jadak and Reeze Duurman, two operatives of a covert group of Senators and Jedi who were concerned about Palpatine's actions in control of the Senate and were seeking to restore Senatorial authority.

Question: Why is the hydra able to spit fire, when it suppose to be a water creature?

Answer: Water creature? The Hydra is a MYTHOLOGICAL creature, with many different variations in different stories. She lived in a swamp, had bad breath. This is just another different interpretation of the same Greek myth.

Question: How can Percy and his friends play all the games in the Lotus Hotel casino, when they are still teenagers and the legal age to gamble in Las Vegas is 21?
