If it can't be inferred through imagery (perhaps on a screen, TV, or newsprint) then it won't be known. This dialog is not in the script as written, but is in the transcript of what was actually said.

Anger and fear. After the episode with the pills, they refused to let her go to the basement to play chess with Mr. Sheibel. This obviously hurt her deeply, and she begged him to help her out and he didn't. She grew to hate the plsce. Show also had an affection for him... A feeling which causes fear and anxiety in her. She often pushed everyone she likes ...

Yes, the target of the acquisition had a poison pill in place to discourage a takeover. A buyout is an attempt to acquire a controlling share (>50%) of a company. If the other stockholders do not want the party to get the controlling share than a buyout is basically a hostile takeover. This is what Rachel's boss is proposing as a means of acquiring the ...

Miss Harmon had a busy life; full steam ahead. She went from orphan to hero. Its rags to riches theme is the reason we enjoy it so. Time was really of the essence for Beth. Go go go. Her mother, hesitant at first, soon realised her potential and encouraged her to go here there and everywhere, all whilst sampling the top booze everywhere she went. I don’t ...

At first I was sure it was sabotage. Chloe admits to being jealous of Beth, and doesn’t stop her after one drink, as a good friend would. However, after reading one of the answers here, about Chloe ultimately being bored, I think that’s true, Chloe is more bored with her life than anything so it’s the boredom first that causes her to let Beth put on a show, ...

I didn't think it was a sabotage and the show doesn't focus on that element much. But I wonder if that element was cut out of the show. Townes in the final episode said the Russian embassy helped him get a visa perhaps to distract her. How would the Russians or anyone know she had feelings for Townes? Nothing really happened b/w them. She'd revealed to Cleo ...

Breaking the 4th wall is not a "character" looking at the audience. It's the acknowledge of the existence of audience by the work thus incorporating it in it's own existence. Breaking the 4th wall is for that - to break the invisible wall and merge both worlds. It's not the decision of the character to do that (because they don't exist) or an actor ...

Chloe is a known chess groupie of Ben Watts. He met her at a Paris tournament and she is the kind of model that over stays her welcome because she’s bored with glamour and the fact that as she puts it, “we’re bodies that the clothes go on to show off, nothing more”. She wasn’t deliberately trying to sabotage Beth, again she is bored. I would say Beth giving ...

The 2012 version is just a re-telling of the original book/cartoon, so it's based on the same lore. In that original version, it was shown that Thneedville sprung out of nothingness. Essentially, a factory was created to produce Thneeds, and that factory brought workers which brought other inhabitants as was the case with early cities and settlements. Once ...

I think its most likely that the people who were alive and old enough to remember real trees have just been so brainwashed and indoctrinated into the new system that they no longer care enough to remember details about them like photosynthesis. Also, a lot of the people are portrayed as if they are easily misled and not very intelligent. But obviously some ...

There probably isn't a Supergirl on earth 1 because Supergirl is originally from Krypton, so her doppelganger would be on Krypton in the Earth 1 universe, the same with Superman. Since doppelgangers tend to be different than each other they may have never come to earth 1 at all. I do agree with the idea that not everybody would have a doppelganger though, ...

Even if not outright stated, Charles Weyland can almost certainly be concluded as being the father of Peter Weyland (who was born in 1990 and rose to power eight years after Charles died), seeing as the history and character of Peter was designed in such a way that you could easily interpret Peter and his iteration of the company as existing in succession to ...

This is mostly speculation, but the wizard either hadn't thought to give them the trinkets (only came up with them out of desperation), or didn't expect them to placate them, and only after he was unmasked did he decide he had nothing left to lose in trying them. He also likely wasn't certain about whether the balloon would work, and didn't expect Dorothy to ...

Because (as explained in the plot description on the movie's Wikipedia page) he isn't a wizard, but a con man. The gifts are merely symbolic items: Upon their return, the Wizard stalls in fulfilling his promises until Toto pulls back a curtain, exposing the "Wizard" as a fraud operating machinery. Admitting to being a humbug, he insists he is &...

It's true that the movie is silent on the fate of Miss Almira Gulch. Even the original shooting script, which contains a lot of material excised from the final edit, never reveals whether or not she survived the twister. On the face of it, her survival would appear to put a damper on the whole story: presumably she would show up sooner or later with the ...

I have to give credit to this article, which phrases it better than I could. Dwayne is Olive’s angsty teenage brother, shown early on reading Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra and wearing a shirt that reads “Jesus Was Wrong.” He even has a wall-sized painting of Nietzsche hanging on his bedroom wall. Dwayne takes a vow of silence inspired by the great ...
