Not really. The http://.../foo.php request returns html and not php. 
The foo.php file is parsed and executed by the remote server and 
returned to you as html. By adding serie_id=xxx you actually give the 
remote php-script the name and value of the variable.

You should think of include/require as a way to *include* any file 
into your script. Instead of cutting and pasting code into your file, 
you use include. Thats the way it works in practice. No magic is going 
on here :-)
