I want to say it was his polite way of saying, "Not really, it made me aroused." When men become aroused, well, you likely know what happens, and it can lead to some slight...discomfort? Cap is definitely still fairly old fashioned as you put it, and simply wanted to be polite and not vulgar.

This actually happens everytime somebody exits the car in the film (and in quite a few other films from the era too). There are two possible reasons for this: Firstly, Hitchcock did love his filming and it's highly possible he felt having the people exit via the passenger door gave him a better shot. In fact, some basic googling shows a general consensus ...

Might be Spy Hard (1996). Secret agent WD-40 Dick Steele (Leslie Nielsen) has his work cut out for him. Along with the mysterious and lovely Veronique Ukrinsky, Agent 3.14, he must rescue the kidnapped Barbara Dahl and stop the evil genius, a General named Rancor (Andy Griffith), from seizing control of the entire world. Rancor was wounded ...

This scene was meant to put a spotlight on Jobs' darker side, but the event never really happened. In a fact check, this scene was specifically mentioned: Take the movie's font scene. At an all-hands meeting, an employee dares to question Jobs’s choice of “adding pretty fonts” on the Lisa computer, the forerunner to the Macintosh, causing Jobs to fire ...

Here's my poor understanding of household plumbing. Normally, your toilet (and sink, shower...) drains have a "trap" which holds a little bit of water in order to prevent the sewer stink from coming up the hole. The top of the vent pipe usually goes up to the top of the building and vents to the air (this is sometimes why in high winds, the toilet water ...

No details were ever given in the show, but the implication was that Gus was part of the Pinochet government in Chile. See for confirmation this interview with the actor who played Gus: http://seriable.com/breaking-bad-giancarlo-esposito-reveals-gus-backstory-that-might-still-come-to-light/ which includes this: Gus was probably a guy who was a General ...

Are you talking about Pietro Annigoni's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II? Here it is: It's actually visible quite clearly in other parts of the episode.

Depending on needs, generally they are made from acrylic, glass, Latex or silicone. Acrylic and glass can give the glossy look to the prop eye, but latex and silicone can give it a spongy texture. Of the Swedish film Thriller, lead actress Christina Lindberg said in an interview Director Bo Arne Vibenius used an actual human cadaver for the eye "surgery" ...

Allen Gamble (Ferrell) forgets how the Miranda Rights speech goes, so his partner (Wahlberg) jokingly makes him finish the sentence with a bit from another familiar speech: the saftey speech in airplanes that at one point tells you that certain things around you could be used as a floatation device. Thus, he's making Allen sound like a flight attendant ...

Within the Comics (The Bendis versions at least, which is the most current run of GOTG), groot actually has bulbous, glowing areas as par of his anatomy: so there is a precedent for bioluminosity... By the look of the glowing spores he produces, it is probably to suggest that groot (being a plant) disperses his seeds as by driftseed. There are hundreds of ...

By listening to the Director's commentary in the bluray, the idea is that Loki's scepter does not only affect people, controlling them by touch (as with Barton/Hawkeye) but the mere presence of it can create confusion and insert anger into people's hearts around it, at least in the near proximity of the scepter. The shot where the cammera flips and ...

The humor is in the misconception that a cosmetologist goes into space, which is weightless. The word Navin was confusing was COSMONAUT - an astronaut, or COSMOLOGIST - astrophysicist.

You're after Before I Disappear from 2014. A troubled young man and his straight-laced niece embark on a thrilling odyssey through New York City in this heartrending drama based on an Oscar-winning short. The short it's based on is Curfew. You can see the scene here: ...

'Eating' is slang for fellatio (see definition 7 here). By saying "watch out who you eat", he's humorously telling them to be careful whom they have sex with.

The movie never explicitly revealed the relevance of that story, but while McCall was telling it, Teddy made a comment like "You think you know me?" This gave me the impression that McCall was revealing how much research he had done or intelligence he'd acquired, and that the story was about Teddy - he was the orphaned boy. And Teddy's response was ...

Since it's not in the comics there's no explanation there where one would usually turn. It's not explained in the movie either. I also cannot find any official announcement from the movie creators explaining what they are. All these things mean it's down to interpretation, i.e. your question cannot be answered at this time. My interpretation is that a ...

To summarise from Wikipedia, the story of My Fair Lady is as follows: The story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady. In other words, taking a common girl and making her into a proper lady. The lines you refer to are the professor ...

It's the famous 'Moses Supposes' scene from Singin' in the Rain:

Earlier in the film, the following exchange takes place between Archer and Solomon (from a transcript of the film): Archer: I've gotta quit smoking, huh? Solomon: Why don't you? Archer: I'll tell you what, Solomon. You find me this diamond, and I'll quit right then and there, huh? So, Archer will quit when he has the diamond. That's his "end ...

This was definitely a prank. Danny and Rusty didn't want Linus in on every meeting, but Linus insisted he be involved. So they pre-arranged with Matsui to start a Zen-type discussion about, basically, nothing. At the end, they were to make it look as if Linus' ramblings almost cost them a job, in the hopes that Linus would back away from his desire to be ...

Johnny: "I have a cousin that's gay, by the way." Tim: "Most people do." Frankie (shouts): "Ready!" Johnny: "He's a really great guy." Tim: "I'm sure." Johnny: "He just found out he was gay a couple of months ago." Tim: "I'll look him up in the directory. Under the new listings." This dialog was while Johnny was waiting on ...

You might mean the nanny's suicide in The Omen. She hangs herself from a building after shouting, "[Damien], it's all for you". The remake from 2006 faithfully reenacts the scene with the same dialogue (pic here) so you might mean that. Here is the scene from the original movie [Warning: disturbing]: ...

The doctor asks if Marcus could stay with them and Will jokingly asks Suzie "my place or yours?". Now that's a line you'd rather ask a date you're going to hook up with and Will says that exactly as a joke to Suzie, playing with that meaning, who afterall was his date before the tragic events unfolded. But soon enough, and with the help of Suzie's confused ...

Probably Angels With Dirty Faces. From Wikipedia: Rocky is then captured following an elaborate shootout in a building, and sentenced to die. Jerry visits him just before his execution and asks him to do him one last favor—to die pretending to be a screaming, sniveling coward, which would end the boys' idolization of him. Rocky refuses, and insists he ...

According to this interview with the director Rodrigo Cortés, it's an illusion Murphy actually performs: After Murphy was cast, the actor hung out with a magician in Cortés’s native Spain and watched David Copperfield and Criss Angel’s shows in Las Vegas. Murphy learned a few tricks along the way, all of which he performs in the film, including a ...

I believe he was asking for some confirmation that what he was saying was coming in loud and clear on the other end. He was wearing a wire designed to transmit his conversation to detectives who were listening in, and if the wire disengaged then wearing it was moot.

It wasn't about why they couldn't get a permit, it's that they probably didn't even try because they thought it was stupid or didn't feel it was worth the effort. The event you are speaking of didn't happen when they couldn't get a permit (i.e. it's not like they were trying to get some kind of permit in this scene and the cops refused to grant it, and the ...

We don't know. Ultimately though, it's irrelevant. If you look at the script before and after that line: Lefty: ...Whole time Sonny Black's in the can, the whole time... He's got a family, he's got a mistress. He's got a mistress for the mistress. I watched out for them, all of them. Me, I was the only one. Nobody else gave a fuck. He's ...

You've obviously watched the Director's Cut, going by the questions you've asked. There are some differences in the script, including this section. To quote the relevant section from the original script: Lefty: Ain't no comparison. Cadillac got more acceleration, more power, more-- better handling, ...

The joke comes from "heavy breather". See this definition from thefreedictionary: an anonymous telephone caller who imitates such sounds, as being suggestive of sexual excitement
