There is no real official reason but it's mainly because of the (old) British culture. Namely, butlers were/are servants in large households who tended to their employer’s wishes. Despite being in a servant position, they were often respected for their skill and loyalty (even today there are specialized butler schools, often located in England) which often ...

The bank that was being robbed at the beginning is where the mob kept their money; the money that was stolen belonged to the mob. From the script: Bank Manager: You have any idea who you're stealing from? You and your friends are dead. And Gordon: My detectives have been making drug buys with them for weeks. This bank was another drop for the mob. ...

It's more than just a British accent. It's a specific kind of British accent officially known as "Received Pronunciation." It conveys a level of refinement and social prestige. When an assistant talks this way in an American movie, the implication is that they are more than just an assistant. Unsaid is that they are educated and connected, and certainly know ...

In-universe, Gambol is meant to represent one of the younger gangs, not the old-world Italian mobsters. He's seen as being more angry and direct than the other gang leaders at the table. They were all likely feeling the same way as Gambol, but decided that trusting the Joker was good for business. Ultimately they were all mistaken, since like Alfred said ...

If you refer to Dr. Laura Schlessinger, then probably not, seeing as she was parodied by the one-shot character Dr. Nora (played by Christine Baranski) from the episode of the same name.

According to Wikipedia's plot summary: After Eve's mother falls into a coma as a result of the poisoning, which everyone believes was a suicide attempt, Eve is taken in by Thomas, her estranged father. She hacks into his computer and finds many e-mails and chat messages which show that he has a sadomasochistic sexual relationship with a female musician. ...

I fail to understand what transpired between the two in this time that she agrees. The patient had seemingly recovered between the time of steroid treatment and Dr. Cuddy visiting her. When Dr. Cuddy visited the patient she noticed that the patient had color to her, a hearty appetite, was sitting up straight and was smiling, and even wanted to thank Dr. ...

The way I see it, Gambol just happened to be the guy to speak up first, and it just escalated. Let's walk through their dynamic in this scene: Edgy clown barges into a meeting full of crime lords dressed exactly like the wackjob who stole their money. It's reasonable for Gambol or any of the other mob bosses to put Joker down. Gambol gives Joker a chance to ...

Dean killing Death was an accident, which is why he looks so shocked. He meant to decapitate his brother, but missed and accidentally hit Death who unwisely happened to be standing in the path of the scythe. The scythe looks pretty heavy and Dean's probably never handled one before, so it makes sense that his swing would be off. It looks like his depth ...

Do you recall the scene in Mr Bixler's Adult Poetry class? There's a scene where Rhonda and Justin take everyone's hands and begin their spiritual work. Just before they begin to hold hands, a woman says, "That's really cool!". That woman is Jackie. Find that scene, pause that scene and look at a pic of Nancy Chlumsky. It's her. This really should be ...

It's a reference to his philandering ways among "commoners". David is heir to a fortune, yet he spends most of his time having sex with women who aren't in the upper crust of society. In effect, he is a "dildo" to "citizen" women. I have to admit, at first I thought it was a play on "Citizen Kane", but there really aren't any similarities between Charles ...

The answer is clear and simple and can be known by simply understanding Vision Vision had a mind stone on him. It was one of the six infinity stones and had great power. The power was that Vision could read the minds. Just when he was born, he was not fully conscious and seeing a gigantic person (Thor) beside him in an attacking mode, he attacked. But then, ...
