Obviously in the American version it was a) into next week. I couldn't find an answer for what the German version said so I will guess e) three times around the globe or it could be the same as the American version since both versions were based on the same short story. Actually, why would it be different?

There are 3 containers on the back of the stove. There is 1 pot on the back burners of the stove.

10) How on earth did Lureen cook a Thanksgiving dinner in three hours?
Additional note: There is no final, correct answer to this question, but many ways to score a point. Let your imagination run wild...

It was Thanksgiving and Lureen knew she had to do the usual chore of cooking the Thanksgiving dinner. In her calculations she would have only three hours to do this in. Work was very busy and of course Lureen knew how to balance the numbers. She was a whiz at that. She spotted an advertisement from the local A & P telling about a fully cooked turkey that only needed to be heated up. What's more for just a little more she could get the sweet potatoes and all of the other Thanksgiving dinner fixins. Bobby didn't like turkey anyway so she would grab him some cereal and peaches. He didn't need anything more since it would be too much trouble to try and get him to eat. So she went and purchased the Thanksgiving dinner. It took her only three hours to warm everything up. Nobody even knew the difference. Jack and her Daddy fought the whole time anyway. She was very pleased with herself.


11 ) What's the name of this boy?

Jake Church who plays Bobby Twist

12)What song is playing in the bar while Ennis is getting beat up on the street?

A memory bracelet and a slap bracelet.

15) What is wrong with the skating competition Monroe is watching?

c) The match he's watching took place in 1980, yet the banner at the charity ball in a later scene reads 1978.

A cigar.

19) Which headlight on Ennis's truck does not work?

If looking towards the front of the truck, the left headlight does not work. This would be the one on the passenger side.

20)What other Ang Lee movie features an angst-fraught Thanksgiving scene?
