This is definitely one of my favorite sitcom shows; it really has its moments. I wasn't too sure about there being an explanation, besides that Justin Berfield likely himself prefers to dye his hair. But when I finished reading the question, I felt that I do in fact vaguely recall that there is a brief dialogue between Reese and Lois while the family is ...

i thought it was the way he saw tattaglia look at barzini which suggested he was giving him a look that there was something else he needed to say and that they were in cahoots with each other!

Allie asks Noah if he thinks their love is so strong that it can grant miracles and he says yes, which is proven by her memory returning against all odds. She then asks if their love is so strong that it could take them away together, which would be another miracle. Them dying in the next scene shows that their love was so strong that it granted the miracle ...

Jack O'Dwyer, played by actor Hugh McGuire. I theorize he is the Wayne Industries Metropolis Division HQ's equivalent of Mr. Fox ... my 2 cents.

I think the point of the scene is that we are as confused, and surprised as Tyrion. We're basically having the same reaction that they did. We're desperately trying to figure out what the heck really happened, and having long discussions about it.

That was my favorite part of the movie. The detectives knew the situation could rip apart the LA police department and bring about investigations that could end up sending them to prison for their various crimes. But they didn't know how corrupt Captain Smith was. I loved the way the detectives were crowded around the window, transfixed on every word Exley ...

This, and a lot of other similar "unexplainable" horror effects occur in the book, too. (As Dean Koontz repeatedly asserts, he is not a horror writer, but a writer who uses horror effects.) However, there is an in-world explanation, and it's conveniently the same as the meta-explanation you offered yourself: "Was it...just to add a creep factor?" Yes, ...

In popular culture, freed genies always retain their powers. In myth, Jinn are magical creatures, and their enslavement only limits when and why they can use their powers. In Disney, Genie isn't given much back story of how or why he became an enslaved genie or gained his powers. He's even forgotten his real name after 10000 years. But the movie at no time ...

Edison has been stuck on the planet for a hundred years. By the time of his last recording, he already seems to have been mentally and physically affected by the life extending magic. I mean dues ex machina. Only 3 crew members have survived, and it's was shown that Krall has attacked and taken passing star ships and their crews to use as fuel for extending ...

They weren't exactly sure where he was, from IMDB emphasis mine... Colonel Lucas: Your mission is to proceed up the Nung River in a Navy patrol boat. Pick up Colonel Kurtz's path at Nu Mung Ba, follow it and learn what you can along the way. When you find the Colonel, infiltrate his team by whatever means available and terminate the Colonel's ...

TL;DR: Discriminatory policies against Jews came long before the death camps, and the US was well aware of these policies by the mid-30's. The US government became aware of internment of Jews soon after that policy was enacted as well. The existence of death camps came to the attention of the Allied governments by 1942 at the latest, but wasn't fully ...

I was kind of thinking that the tv series is in the same time frame of the end of the movie. Because, at the end, it says the little "12 months later" and I and if you notice the Eddies` hair at the end of the movie and at the beginning of tv series, it's different. Because in the middle-ish, he gets a haircut and he slicks it back, and that's how it is at ...

In the film itself: There's no exact explanation possible from known details, but basically you can make a rough guess: Ritter has a "get out of jail" letter from the President so he doesn't care too much what happens - he's safe. There's plenty of evidence of the operation (people who participated) that a single printed page - whose authenticity is ...

In the bedroom scene with Evelyn Mulwray, she asks Gittis "What did you do when you worked on the police force?" He answered, "As little as possible." He repeated that line at the end of the movie; and Escobar responded "Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown."

Krall states that they were machines (drones) in his fight with Kirk in the air duct at the end. This helps explain why they blew up when the Beastie Boys were pumped into their system. He says something like this (remembered quote): Only 3 of us survived, on this alien planet with advanced technology, drones, and life enhancing tech.

They use the Hair to stitch up wounded War Boys, same explanation as to why the Organic Mechanic has patchy hair.

Further to the accepted answer, there is a visual cue to the Omnidroid AI's thought process during the scene. It's clearly been programmed to destroy the city and anyone who gets in its way - and tries to attack Syndome, suggesting that (apart from the effect of the remote) the Omnidroid doesn't recognise Syndrome as "master" - just as another person to be ...

This is a common movie technique, and I have often asked myself the same question: If the character is the one affected, why are we (in the form of the camera) seeing things not from his point-of-view, as you might expect, but only with his mental state coloring things. Here's a really common, similar example: A character remembers something. We flashback. ...

"Proof" - zodiac watch - unless it was unique, or noted as part of the crimes, that's not really proof of anything. Matching the description - important, but not really definitive without other evidence Arrested for molesting children - has really no relation to the murders, at all, and would never be allowed to be presented in court unless murder ...

Which would be worse: To live as a monster, or to die as a good man? Firstly it proves he is currently well and willing to be lobotomised, probably as a punishment for his crime. For this reason 'dying as a good man' does not mean he is being lobotomised when he is delusional, as he is fully aware of his crime and he would be lobotomised (die) as a monster....

I think that interlude, like much (or all) of the movie, was symbolic of an aspect of romance in real life. Specifically, I think it represented how so many people in real life -- to avoid loneliness -- attempt to pair up with someone who is not really a good match. He was getting desperate as his time to meet someone was running low. So he focused on the ...

The Omnidroids were robots with AI designed to learn from every battle, adapt and defeat it's enemies. The typical villain hubris trope, his own creation turned against him when Syndrome "attacked" it. The Omnidroid V.10 was just doing what it was made to do. And that was to intentionally go for the remote when it detected that it was a threat to itself and ...

you cannot look at things that they have in common, and claim that since so many are common he must be zodiac.

In Arrow S04E20 aka Genesis, a shaman named Fortuna explains that the idol channels darkness and death but it can be countered by opposing force that channels light and hope but during practice Oliver failed because his internal darkness was more. In the last episode when all the citizens start rioting, it was Oliver who inspired them and gave them hope. ...

Crispen Glover so responsible. The original ending had either Goldie waxing his car or a unnamed black guy waxing the car.

Colonel Mortimer's sister is a good person She has just witnessed her lover (or in the novel her new husband) gunned down, and been raped. Her world is devastated, however she is a Christian (we see her crucifix and see the Colonel Bible when we first see him). She is not a murderer, even in revenge for such crimes. She decides she cannot take any ...

Thou shalt not kill. There's a crucifix hanging in her bedroom. Suicide is debatably a sin. Murder is not up for debate. And unless you're psychotic, it's not as easy as the movies make it out to be. When you hang a man you'd better look at him.

The mind of Fuller-1999 does not escape to 2024. The mechanism of the consciousness escaping from the simulation is explained by Whitney early in the film (before we know that this can happen): While my mind is jacked in; I'm walking around experiencing 1937; my body stays here and kinda holds the consciousness of the program link unit. From this ...

Ben didn't have the camera when JD told Dr Cox about him not making it. At that point Ben was dead. We see late that the "heart" patient was in a bed when Dr Cox took all of JD's patients. When Ben was missing his camera was also when no one else noticed Ben, furthering the theory that Ben was the one who died from cardiac arrest

They gloss over the delay for effect, but it does show that a crowd of people at NASA headquarters and the JPL are waiting around for replies. Especially when he is live. The Delay is addressed multiple times though. And according to the book and movie, at some points, depending on where Mars and Earth are relative to each ...

Ok...I'll take a shot The "fireball" is actually the front of a blast wave emanating from the point the alien ship fired straight down. In various clips it can be seen that it's a ring of fire. So it's possible that if she could somehow have avoided the fire going round corners*...the door to the 'safety area', in fact, remained open after the dog (...

The communication delay was in fact addressed in the movie. Here is a link to the scene with Director Ridley Scott's commentary. Around 3:25 Tim makes a sarcastic comment about the limits of the communication with Mark, including the delay. "Are you receiving me?" "Yes. No." [Vincent] Okay, point the camera at "yes....

Another thing to consider, being King in the North doesn't make you Lord/Lady of Winterfell. Sansa is still Lady of Winterfell, but Jon is King in the North.

Because they were essentially on an undercover mission and couldn't risk word getting out in case their target caught wind.

From What I remember It Was her original programming to kill him and the explosion must have reset her to factory settings (F*#k you Apple). From My knowledge of real-world electronics, I suppose its possible that the explosion could have corrupted a hard drive or part of a hard drive and that forced the CPU to boot in safe mode which would would boot with ...

The film is rather vague around this point, but there are a couple of clues. At one point we hear this exchange (source IMDb): Mr. Brooks: Where do you think he has the other pictures? Marshall: He put them in a safety deposit box. But I'll bet the box is at the bank where he keeps his checking account. The key... is on his key chain! He really ...

I think it is a bit like the video game Batman: Arkham Knight. After you rescue Jim Gordon, he somehow knows Batman's true identity, You never figure out how he knew but, there was evidence of Batman talking to Alfred, and just like the party scene in BVS Clark knows about Batman's identity by just doing the simple and putting two and two together.

One of the main themes of the season 2 premier was that "control is an illusion." We think of people in bondage as being the submissive ones, but it is later revealed that it's actually Joanna who has control over the guy she is having sex with. I think this scene adds on to the theme of control.

I think its just a productivity technique called Time Logging. Benefits ofcourse is that you could make the mundane chores more challenging and competetive, thereby getting more done in less time

The threat was obvious and present: Now, I don't know what you're grand plan is, but I need to, and you're going to tell me. Two days ago, I strangled a woman to death. Just with my hands. It's a strange sensation. Something so tremendous done by something so simple. The first 10 seconds were Uncomfortable. A feeling of limbo. But then your ...

What I took from the film is that she realized it had upset the BFG when he saw it. His response to seeing her wear it, "Where'd you get...", after he just dumped out a pile of clothes for her, was odd. Since she was likely still in need of a coat, but didn't want to upset him, she turned it inside out.

I just re-watched this movie and on second viewing I believe the director does reveal who killed the don. When Chief Kang stops Jung in the airport he makes a comment that Jung was eliminating the don's guys by accusing them of being moles (ie. the opening scene where a "rat" is killed), and that the next step was killing the don so he could get the throne. ...

Fisk wasn't lying, so there's no reason to make note of him noticing that Fisk wasn't lying. People that believe what they're doing is right can be dangerous. We have every reason to believe that Matt takes Fisk's plans seriously. The idea that Fisk believes he is right, as does Matt, are part of the theme throughout the series. Here's an interaction ...

he shot himself because he was in stage 4 cancer going to die anyways and they needed a distraction. he did it with an old style cannon gun that made it sound like it was from a distance. you could see his right hand up to his chest and the left hand in his pocket, and he fell forward in the direction the gun shot came from. wikipedia is written by users, so ...

Why does a male bastard have a stronger claim than a female true-born daughter? Why did Sansa not become the "Queen in the North"? Theoretically, a true-born unmarried daughter would take precedence. And practically, if she were married to a strong ally, she and/or her husband could take precedence. But Sansa's been married once or twice, depending on ...

In episode 6, Jake and Mimi have a conversation where she reveals she has cancer and talks about Deke, saying "we've spend our lives next to one another, but not with one another" or something along those lines. I assumed it was a secret marriage/unofficial one or something.

Those are one-dollar bills, to shower the strippers with. I presume that each of the women paid in advance or at the table, and are just receiving the same amount of money in one-dollar bills.

I wrote a really long answer on this over on the other site... to summarise: Sansa doesn't want to rule. Littlefinger tried and failed to talk her into staking her claim in the previous episode, so we know she knows she could, but she at this point she wants safety, not power, and Monarchs of the North don't have the best life expectancy. Since season 1, ...

While being unable to find something definitive, even after re-watching the episode, according to the Chuck Wikia, Fleming is dead. But before Fleming could tell Chuck why he was expelled, Einerson shoots him in the back with his crossbow. No further information is found after being told by Sarah that he's headed into surgery, which would strongly ...

I always thought this was simple, Chinatown represents corruption, and it's not a racial thing, just a tough district where police tended to overlook existing corruption on their daily beat just to get along, and also to probably participate in corruption (payoffs). That's why Jake left the force with cynicism. The line is just the partner telling him to ...
