March 26[edit]

Street Fighter II[edit]

What differences there are between the arcade and SNES version of Street Fighter II? David Pro (talk)

  • I'd imagine the sound and graphics would be of inferior quality. Perhaps less animation frames too.Exxolon (talk) 00:56, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Nudity in French Canadian films[edit]

Is there any nude scenes in French-Canadian films?

nude in French films[edit]

Is there any nude scenes in French films?

Is there any reason why you would suspect that there wouldn't be? Dismas|(talk) 03:50, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Sûrement. − Twas Now ( talkcontribse-mail ) 16:52, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Of course they do! go rent The Dreamers (film) it has so much nudity that it will make YOU feel naked.--Yamanbaiia(free hugs!) 20:54, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
I personally like the scene in Amélie with all the people climaxing :) --Oskar 21:52, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Boy and Girl that are best friends[edit]

Does anyone know of a movie or TV show in which there is a boy/man and a girl/woman who are best friends but not dating or married?-- (talk) 01:55, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Will & Grace --Nricardo (talk) 02:15, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
That kind of works, but do you have an example where the guy isnt gay? not that there is anything wrong with that.-- (talk) 02:35, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Classical ones might be Friends or Seinfeld? If you count only brief dating I guess. Frasier and his producer, Ros (though they aren't central). X-Files? Julia Rossi (talk) 03:07, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
How about Claissa and Sam in Clarissa Explains It All? Adam Bishop 03:09, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Rose Tyler and the Doctor would pretty much fit that description during her two seasons on Doctor Who -- they clearly cared for each other very much, although she had a boyfriend as well, who appeared in some episodes. Perhaps some of the Doctor's other companions in other seasons would also fit; Rose's two seasons are the only ones I've only seen most episodes of. --Anonymous, 03:40 UTC, March 26, 2008.

Mork & Mindy and Moonlighting Dismas|(talk) 03:49, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Sorry to nitpick, but Mork and Mindy were married in the 4th season. I consider it an early victory for Christian Right. / edg 04:03, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Were they? Hmm... I must have missed that. It's not really surprising considering how conservative Pam Dawber is. I suspect that she had some objection to them just living together. Dismas|(talk) 06:44, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Star Trek: Voyager gives us Captain Janeway and Chakotay as well as The Doctor and Seven. Star Trek is full of them. Lanfear's Bane | t 10:03, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
You might also consider everything but the last ten minutes of When Harry met Sally. DJ Clayworth (talk) 19:27, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Aww, now you've gone and given away the ending.  :) -- JackofOz (talk) 21:40, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Tara King-era Avengers perhaps? Or The Inspector Lynley Mysteries? - Joe King (talk) 20:30, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Spaced. - (talk) 23:22, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
At the mention of Inspector Lynley, I guess you could add Rose and Maloney. Julia Rossi (talk) 03:32, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Veronica Mars - the eponym & Wallace. AllynJ (talk | contribs) 04:08, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

split enz[edit]

hi, again, can you please tell me 4 other new zealand bands/singers who were contemporaries to split enz? (talk) 02:02, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Rather than repeat ourselves, here's a link to the archive for that question. Instructions for searching the Reference Desk archives can be found at Wikipedia:Reference desk/Archives. / edg 03:59, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Flying car crash films[edit]

what are some of the films that contain the best stunt car crashes where cars get projected through the air? or what are some of the best car crashes in movies? (talk) 06:44, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Die Hard 4.0 had some pretty good crashes. hotclaws 08:47, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

The film Ronin had a pretty neat car chase and some spectacular wipes and of course the Jason Bourne movies. Try here. Lanfear's Bane | t 09:55, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior is the ayatollah of crash and rollah. Clarityfiend (talk) 17:08, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
I'm disappointed this is not actually about flying cars crashing. If I recall The Matrix Reloaded had a pretty spectacular crash scenes. AtaruMoroboshi (talk) 17:41, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
My favourite is where the car crashes into a pick-up truck in The Blues Brothers. -- JackofOz (talk) 21:38, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
see you next wedensday...Perry-mankster (talk) 22:19, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
If you're going to go with Blues Brothers, though, you need to cite the Illinois Nazis. How many car crashes are set to Ride of the Valkries? — Lomn 18:59, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Such an inspired choice. I would have mentioned those other gentlemen, but for not wanting to invoke Godwin's Law. -- JackofOz (talk) 23:29, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Same film again, and there's something almost poetic in the excessive piling up of police cars. A few of them do a few air flips too, if I recall correctly. Confusing Manifestation(Say hi!) 05:56, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Bobby Valentine[edit]

I was at the last game Bobby Valentine managed for Texas in 1992. I am looking for the date of this game, so I can find the box scores and the game summary.

Never mind, I found it, finally. July 9, 1992

If you had an account, I'd find a barnstar for you being an independent questioner. (Or someone would make one) Julia Rossi (talk) 09:46, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Looking for a list of songs[edit]

I think we used to have a list along the lines of "List of songs whose titles contain the entire lyrics" or "...whose lyrics consist only of the title". I can't recall exactly what it was called,though. Was it deleted, or is it still out there? (talk) 18:47, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

I don't know, but Around the World (Daft Punk song) comes to mind. AtaruMoroboshi (talk) 18:57, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
I seem to recall that it was deleted last year along with a bunch of other "List of songs …" articles. Unless the exact title is known, it's difficult to find the record of the deletion; but Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of songs whose title does not appear in the lyrics shows the decision to delete what might be considered the anti-list to the one you remember. Deor (talk) 20:23, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I found it. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of songs whose title constitutes the entire lyrics was closed as "no consensus," but the closure was overturned at deletion review and the article was deleted. Deor (talk) 22:23, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
It doesn't seem to have been preserved in user space either. Sometimes it helps to do a search in the User and User Talk namespaces - in fact, when I look stuff up on Wikipedia it seems more likely to exist there than in the article namespace. Not in this case, though. But if some admin could grab the deleted list and put it back up in the User namespace, that would be great. - (talk) 23:21, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

family guy[edit]

theres this episode keanu reeves places his cock inside a mail box and some celeb [can't remember the name,gets it two years later.I didnt get the hidden joke.Please help..

Pleez pleez sign with four ~ otherwise it's like answering a message in a bottle... The Lake House movie is the reference (with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock) Julia Rossi (talk) 23:49, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Ah yes, the Family Guy episode "Stewie Kills Lois," making fun of The Lake House. I haven't watched the film, but I saw Ebert's review where he said something about Sandra Bullock's character getting the message two years later. I laughed when I saw it, but now that I'm explaining it, it doesn't seem funny anymore. Cromulent Kwyjibo (talk) 02:51, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Er, Julia, you want The Lake House (film). I was thinking to myself, "hmm, which movie was that again?" and came across: "The Lake House tells the story of six extraordinary children, endowed with the power to fly after genetic engineering merged their DNA with that of birds, and who have to fight for their lives against scientists who want to clone them, producing a race of human-bird creatures." before I realized that I was looking at some novel unrelated to the movie XD Kuronue | Talk 03:38, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
