He was wearing a mail underneath, which is a battle clothing not for a marriage ceremony. But her suspicion started when she notices Black Walder Rivers close the banquet hall doors and the musicians in the gallery begin playing "The Rains of Castamere"- the song commemorating House Lannister's decisive and brutal victory against the rebellious ...

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 ...

TL;DR : Catelyn slapped Roose because she realized that they were about to be betrayed, and that Roose was a part of it. She knew this because he was wearing chainmail at the wedding. One of the most sacred traditions in Westeros is that of "Guest Right", which is a sacred law protecting both hosts AND guests from hostility while staying at another's ...

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 ...

TL;DR She wasn't observing him to decide his guilt, but to find out the best way to kill him Longer Version: When Maybe-Jaqen asks Arya what she saw while observing the Thin Man, he wasn't asking if proof of his guilt was found, but rather what his daily routines were. The Faceless Men, as @Reyssor pointed out, are not vigilantes out to right the wrongs ...

He is a Bravo; their swords, Rapiers (Arya's sword, Needle is created based on a Rapier), are not the same as a Westerosi Knight's (who usually use a Long or Broadsword). Unlike the fighting style of Westerosi knights, Water Dancers favor slender, lighter swords for a faster, more elegant fighting style based on sword thrusts, instead of the hacking and ...

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 ...

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 ...

Homer was not regrouping at a prearranged place, a safe point or a tactically strong point, but at a sea food restaurant! Typical of Homer. The only thing that would be more typical of Homer is regrouping at either Moe's or a donut shop.

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" ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

For question #2, for a brief moment you can see that the man is holding a map of Valyria. Presumably this sailor was taking the route through and near the Doom of Valyria, which is generally considered cursed by the majority of people in Essos and Westeros. It would be perfectly normal for the thin man to believe this superstition, giving him reason enough ...

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 ...

They are called Cheval de frise The cheval de frise (plural: chevaux de frise) was a medieval defensive anti-cavalry measure consisting of a portable frame (sometimes just a simple log) covered with many projecting long iron or wooden spikes or spears. While you're correct that in the film they don't stop any of the attacking Greeks, embedded stakes ...

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 ...

Probable reason is blushing, her touch brings about a change of color. As they are war-boys, they must be alien to compassion/affection. So when touched suddenly, his face gets back some colour. And no she doesn't have healing power/effect. Because if that was so, she would have tried to heal Angharad's leg wound, earlier in the film.

She doesn't heal him in a direct physical way but through a more emotional/psychological way. Nux is the character with the biggest arc in Fury road as his character changes immensely from his introduction till his exit. His mental turning point is defined by the touch from the scene you described so seeing a difference in his complexion is absolutely ...
