Question: In the very first episode of Transformers, you see them on Cybertron, millions of years before they crash land on Earth. Why is it that Optimus already resembles a semi truck? The truck parts are visible, the windows, doors, and tires and such. They don't scan Earth to look like vehicles till millions of years later. I never understood that.Carl Missouri
Question: When Marty is playing the guitar after he get fired in the future, Jennifer is trying to sneak out and while he's playing, she stops and turns around to look at Marty. Why does she do this? It made no sense, she could have been caught. Was he playing their "special" song or something?Carl Missouri
Question: In the episode 1009 Mystery of the Urinal Deuce we get to know that Cartman believes 9/11 was a conspiracy. At the end, Stan and Kyle got to know the real truth, but Cartman didn't. Why would he think that new guy is a terrorist, if he believes that 9/11 was a conspiracy by the U.S. government?Ssiscool
Question: Where does the title of this episode come from? It seems like "The Substitute Spanish Prisoner" would actually be better for the episode where Peggy accidentally sneaks a Mexican girl back into America during a field trip, and is later arrested in Mexico.
Question: How did Luke learn to construct a new light saber (after losing his old one in the fight with Darth Vader)? Yoda seems like the only person who could have taught him, but Luke hasn't been back to see him since he lost his old one (Luke's line to Artoo about "keeping a promise to an old friend" makes it clear that this is the case). Was it part of their earlier training on Dagobah?
Question: I've heard that Hans Zimmer's score for this film is heavily inspired by Mozart, to the point where some call it a "rewrite". Which one of Mozart's pieces is he alleged to have drawn inspiration from?
Question: Why do some think that Darth Plagueis or Darth Sidious created Anakin? I don't see why Plagueis would bother training Sidious, or why Sidious would train Maul, if either of them could use the midi-chlorians make a very strong apprentice. Also, Shmi is a poor slave living in a small town in Tattooine, so why would either Plagueis or Sidious have any reason to be interested in her?
