The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Question: Did Rachel ever find out that Chandler was the one who told Ross that he's in love with her (The One Where Rachel Finds Out)? Wouldn't Ross want to know when/how she started liking him?

Answer: Season 2, Episode 7 "The One Where Ross Finds Out". Rachel gets drunk on a date and calls Ross - she leaves a message on his answering machine telling him she's "over him". Ross checks his messages in Rachel's apartment, while on his way to get a cat with Julie. He says "you're over me? When were you...under me?" and asks how she found out. Rachel tells him that Chandler told her, to which Ross replies, "when did he when did he, when did he...?"

Question: I know that when you are near the One Ring you are tempted and once you put it on then you become addicted/obsessed with it. Once you put the Ring on, as you move closer to Mordor and Mt. Doom then the temptation to have it becomes stronger, is this true?

Answer: It's not entirely the case - the Ring begins to work on you from the moment you start to possess it, and the temptation increases with the passage of time, until it becomes impossible to give up the Ring - it's notable that Bilbo is the only person ever to voluntarily give it up after owning it. Proximity to Mordor probably has only a minor effect - time, and probably the relative power of Sauron, are more relevant.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: Of course he would be reborn exactly like he was before he was blown apart. Which is why he needed a blood relative to do so.

Question: Does anyone know what the scene with the chicken is all about? Where did the chicken come from, and is it supposed to represent anything?

Krista

Chosen answer: If you watch the commentary on the movie they discuss this, they explain that the guy who played the mom's boyfriend came up to them and just started doing that thing with the chicken and they thought it was funny so they put it in the movie.

Question: In the end credits, there are seven stuntmen listed, b ut I can only think of four. Can you please tell me what all of the stunts are?.

Answer: Reshooting certain scenes would most likely necessitate new stunt people, as the first one(s) would most likely be hard to get back.

Question: I don't know all the ins and outs of the law, but when Erin is in a car accident, she is going straight through a green light. The other guy rams into her as he tries to cross the intersection (it's not like he just cut her off making a right turn) so obviously he had a red light and not even an arguable right of way. I know money can buy you justice, but how is this not an open and shut case?

Krista

Chosen answer: I have to admit that is a bit frustrating to watch. I think that?s how the producers wanted us to feel. Making us think, "Man this chick never gets a break". It was just an unrealistic way to set up the character's life.

Question: How did Jack escape from the marooned island the first time? His explanation was something about rum and trade routes but I didn't understand it.

iceverything776

Chosen answer: Traders had been storing their goods on the island, hidden in the bunker. When he was first on the island he simply got a lift with them on their ship when they came to collect their goods. Now however the bunker is empty and he knows that the traders won't be back.

Question: When Gandalf is hanging on the edge of the bridge in the mines, what does he say just before he drops? At first I thought he said 'run you fools' but it sounds different every time I hear it.

Answer: "Run, you fools" (in the original theatrical release). "Fly, you fools" (in the DVD release).

Question: Why exactly must Arwen become 'mortal' when she chooses to be with Aragorn? It's not because she didn't leave with the other elves, because Legolas didn't leave until after Aragorn died. Does it have anything to do with the necklace she gives him, as in the necklace was a source of her 'immortality', or was that just a symbol of her love?

Answer: The necklace is only a symbol of her love. She has the choice to make because she's partly human. Elrond, her father, is half-elven, and was therefore given the choice whether to be counted among the 'immortal' elves, or to be counted among mortal humans. He chose elvendom, but all his descendants ultimately have to make the same choice. Arwen loves Aragorn, a mortal, and chooses to live out a mortal lifespan at his side for that reason. Strictly speaking, there's nothing to say that she absolutely has to become mortal, but chooses to so that they will grow old together, which is a part of love, and so that she will not be left to live an elven lifespan without him after his death. Additionally, as a mortal she will experience the same afterlife as a man, instead of returning to Valinor like the elves. This will allow her to stay with Aragon even after death, while splitting her from her father and the elves.

Question: What is the little thing that flies in front of Gandalf's face right before the eagles come to the Black Gate?

Answer: It's a moth, the same (or of the same kind) as the one he sent from Orthanc to get the eagle to rescue him in the "Fellowship".

Ioreth

Question: In the scene where Jack and Elizabeth are marooned on the island, Jack is walking to a higher part of the island. He then imitates Elizabeth by saying something like "'It must have been terrible for you, Jack. Must have been terrible.' Well, it bloody is now." He then sees Norrington's ship approach the island and says, "There'll be no living with her after this." What does he mean when he says that?

Answer: That she was absolutely correct when she presumed that lighting a 1,000-foot signal fire with the remaining rum would bring the ship to them. And, as such, the knowledge that she was right would go to her head.

Rooster of Doom

Show generally

Question: Why isn't Norm MacDonald credited with voicing the role of Death in the first episode the character appears? Also, why was he later replaced by Adam Carrolla?

Answer: He did an uncredited cameo, often this happens if the actor's don't like their billing. Afterwards, he was too tied up with other projects to return.

Question: When the film makers deviate from the book there is often an acknowledgement in some minor detail in the film, for example, Sam's line in Osgiliath, "By rights we shouldn't even be here", is acknowledging that they never go to Osgiliath in the book. Is there anything like that, in any of the trilogy, to acknowledge that the makers / writers left out Tom Bombadil?

Answer: There's a slight reference in the Extended Edition of the Two Towers. When Merry and Pippin are being "eaten" by the tree in the quiet dell of Fangorn Forest, Treebeard arrives and makes the tree let them go. The words he speaks, "Away with you! You should not be waking! Eat earth! Dig deep! Drink water! Go to sleep!" were spoken by Tom Bombadil in the book edition of "The Fellowship of the Ring", to make Old Man Willow release the hobbits.
