I can reply to the emergency slide question. Prior to take-off, the captain will say something like "Flight Attendents prepare for departure", and then they will position the actuating arm that attaches to the door. This arm actuates the slide upon opening the door. Naturally, before landing the captain will say "....prepare for arrival." and that tells the attendant to disable the actuator. In short, the slides can only be activated from inside the plane.
