Quote one. “How you doin’? “This quote comes from this sitcom Friends and is said by Joey Tribbiani played by actor Matt LeBlanc. In over 10 seasons and 236 episodes, Joey said this line less than 20 times. The first time he said it was halfway through season four. Matt LeBlanc was nominated for three Emmy Awards for his role as Joey on Friends. In high school and then into trade school, LeBlanc studied carpentry with plans of becoming a carpenter but his dreams turned to acting. His first acting gig was in a Heinz ketchup commercial. I’ll put the link to this commercial on the Trivia Rewind website if you’d like to see Matt LeBlanc trying to sell ketchup. Friends was on for 10 seasons and was nominated for 62 Emmy Awards. Fans will be happy to know that a Friends reunion special is in the works with HBO Max. It was supposed to shoot earlier this year but the Covid pandemic stopped that from happening. The special will bring all six of the cast members back together for the first time since Friends wrapped in 2004.

Quote two. “The truth is out there.” This quote comes from the show The X-Files and is said by FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder played by actor David Duchovny. David Duchovny has quite the education to brag about. He graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature. He then received a Master of Arts degree in English literature from Yale University. He was working on his doctoral degree when he decided to go full time with his acting career. He is the author of several books and is a New York Times best selling author. In the year 2000, David Duchovny was the first celebrity to appear on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Celebrity Edition.

Quote three. “You got it dude!” This quote is said by Michelle Tanner on the sitcom Full House. Michelle Tanner was played by two people, twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Due to child labor laws, the show used the twins who could take turns doing the role of Michelle. When Mary Kate and Ashley were nine months old, they started their role on Full House. Fans got to watch them grow for eight seasons of the show. When it came time for college, the duo attended NYU. After a year and a half Mary Kate dropped out. Ashley only had a year and a half left before she was set to graduate when she dropped out. The two have made the news in recent years for their smoking habit. The magazine In Touch Weekly has an entire article devoted to their chain smoking. Not the way we want a picture Michelle Tanner that’s for sure. The two jointly own their own company called Dual Star. And here’s something you wouldn’t expect. The last I heard they don’t have social media. In 2016 Netflix released a sequel series called Fuller House and most of the original actors are back except for Mary Kate and Ashley.

Quote four. “Marsha Marsha Marsha.” Well this one should be super easy. It’s said by Jan Brady on the Brady Bunch. Actress Eve Plumb plays the role of Jan. This line from the Brady Bunch is iconic, but did you know it was only said one time during the series run? The line was said in season 3 episode 10 in the episode titled My Sister’s Shadow. In the 1995 Brady Bunch movie, Jan uses this line multiple times. Actress Eve Plumb started her career at age six. Here’s something you don’t hear every day. At the age of eleven, Eve Plumb (with the help of her parents) bought her first home, an oceanfront property in Malibu, California. And talk about a good investment. When she purchased the house in 1969 it was just over $55,000. In 2016, she sold it for $3.9 million. For the past few decades, Eve Plumb has been a painter with her work being shown in galleries. She also occasionally has small roles on television shows.

And quote five. “That’s what she said.” This quote was said by character Michael Scott on The Office. Michael Scott is played by actor Steve Carell. Life Magazine once named Steve Carell America’s Funniest Man. Before getting into acting, Carell went to college and got a degree in history. He even considered law school. Like a lot of people he felt he owed it to his parents to have a serious career. In an NJ.com interview he said that his parents sat him down and said, “look, you need to do what makes you happy.” He then started off on his acting career and the rest is history. Bob Odenkirk the star of Better Call Saul was almost cast to play Michael Scott. While the roll went to Steve Carell, Odenkirk did have a guest role in the last season of the show. Remember Michael Scott’s realtor girlfriend Carol? Well, the actress is Nancy Carell, Steve Carell’s real wife. They have been married since 1995. Currently you can see Steve Carell on Netflix in the series Space Force. He also has a series on Apple TV+ called The Morning Show and stars alongside Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
