This week we got one question sent in via email about the quotes on last week’s episode of Criminal Minds. Other answers to TV questions people were searching for this past week include what happened to Vanished on Friday nights, where you can see episodes of The Office for free, who the new investigator is on Shark, what used to be in the 3 Lbs. timeslot, how Barbara Jean lost her weight on Reba and the difference between two Friends DVD sets. What do you want to know? Have a question regarding a character, TV show or something else television related? Then Ask the TVaholic? Maybe we can help find the answer.

Julie asked: What was the famous quote on Criminal Minds, which aired Wednesday, November 15th? I missed that part.
The quote at the beginning of the episode as they show a shot of the plane leaving, spoken by Gideon, was:

“If men could only know each other, they would neither idolize nor hate.” – Elbert Hubbard

The second quote that played over the plane landing at the end of the episode was spoken by Hotch. The full quote is below and the portion in bold is what they used in the show:

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall – think of it, always.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Where can I see the latest episode of The Office on NBC for free?
You can watch the latest episode of The Office and at NBC’s Rewind. There you can watch 2-minute replays or the full episode of some of NBC’s shows, including The Office, via streaming video. Once a new episode airs the previous one is no longer available. For previous episodes that leaves something like iTunes but those downloads are not free.

Who plays new investigator on Shark CBS?
The new investigator on Shark is played by Henry Simmons. You may recognize him from the last few seasons of NYPD Blue as Det. Baldwin Jones.

What show did 3 Lbs. replace on CBS?
3 Lbs. replaced the cancelled Smith, which starred Ray Liotta as the leader of a band of high end thieves. They filmed seven episodes before cancellation but only three of them ever made the air. You can see all seven episodes at CBS’ innertube website. Alternately they can be purchased at Amazon’s Unbox Video Downloads.

What is the difference between Friends The Complete Series Collection and The One with All Ten Seasons?
These Friends DVD sets both include all 236 episodes on 40 discs. These are the same discs you would get if you bought each season individually. The difference between the two is that The One with All Ten Seasons came in a Limited Edition Collectors Box but is no longer being produced and the new Complete Series Collection comes with a Commemorative 60-page book that includes the original pilot pitch and behind the scenes pictures with the cast and crew.

How did Barbara Jean on Reba lose all her weight?
Well the character Barbara Jean on the show Reba lost all her weight by changing eating better and working out with a personal trainer at the gym. Melissa Peterman who plays Barbara Jean sure has lost a few pounds and looked really good.

What happened to Vanished on Friday nights?
Well, it vanished from the airwaves and has been banished to the web for its remaining episodes. Each new episode will be available, plus the previous two, each Friday until they reach the 13 episodes that were filmed. These episodes should give you some type of closure and wrap up the mystery some for those who have been watching from the beginning.
