Trivia Rewind – Midweek Movie Quotes – You’re Killin’ Me Smalls

Debi Jenkins  0:04  
Hello there Trivia Rewind listeners. This is Debi Jenkins your host. It’s time for another bonus episode of Midweek Movie Quotes. Here’s how it works. I’ll read you five quotes from movies. Then I’ll go back and give you the answers and a few quick facts about each of those movies. Are you ready to play? 

Debi Jenkins  0:27  
Here’s quote one. “That’ll do pig that’ll do.”

Debi Jenkins  0:32  
 Quote two. “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”

Debi Jenkins  0:38  
Quote three. “You’re killin’ me, Smalls.” 

Debi Jenkins  0:42  
Quote four. “Just keep swimming.”

Debi Jenkins  0:47  
Quote five. “Hasta la vista, baby.” 

Debi Jenkins  0:52  
All right, those were our five quotes. Let’s go back and see how you did. 

Debi Jenkins  0:58  
The first quote was, “that’ll do pig, that’ll do.” That is from the movie Babe. Farmer Hoggett says this line to Babe the pig in the 1990 film Babe. Farmer Hoggett is played by actor James Cromwell. James Cromwell received an Oscar nomination for his role as farmer Hoggett. Because of the movie, he even became a vegetarian. In an article from the Vegetarian Times, he’s quoted as saying, “I decided that to be able to talk about this [movie] with conviction, I needed to become a vegetarian.” This film was nominated for seven Academy Awards. 

Debi Jenkins  1:42  
Quote, two. “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” That line came from Steven Spielberg’s hit Jaws. In the movie, Sheriff Brody says this line to the character Quint. Roy Scheider played the role of Sheriff Brody. According to Scheider’s obituary, he ad-libbed the line. Supposedly, the line was kind of an inside joke among the cast and crew. A large barge was used to house all of the equipment for the movie and only a small boat was used to support it. People would tell their producers, “you’re gonna need a bigger boat” and whenever any problems would arise on set, that line would be used as a joke. So when Roy Scheider ad-libbed that line for the movie, imagine the laughs that must have produced among the rest of the cast and crew.

Debi Jenkins  2:34  
Quote three. “You’re killin’ me Smalls.” Well, that line came from the 1993 coming of age sports comedy The Sandlot. Actor Patrick Renna plays the character Ham Porter in the movie, and he says this line to the character Scotty Smalls. This line was actually not in the script. It was improvised by Patrick Renna. In a Hollywood Reporter article, the director said that when the line is translated in Japanese, it’s equivalent to “Hurry up. My clothes are going out of style.” I guess you could say that line was lost in translation. Patrick Renna has his own YouTube variety show called You’re Killing me with Patrick Renna. He often features his co-stars from the movie.

Debi Jenkins  3:27  
Quote four. “Just keep swimming.” This quote comes from Dory on the animated hit Finding Nemo. Dory uses this line with Marlin, Nemo’s father. The director of Finding Nemo, Andrew Stanton, well he also wrote the story. He even provided the voice for one of the characters in the movie. He was the voice of the turtle named Crush. After the movie, I’m sure you can guess what type of fish children became obsessed with? Yep, Clownfish. So much so that there was a 75% drop in the population of Clownfish in natural habitats, such as the ocean around the country Vanuatu.

Debi Jenkins  4:15  
Quote five. “Hasta la vista baby.” This line comes from the 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgment Day. This phrase was made popular by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character known as the Terminator. It’s a Spanish phrase that means “until the next sighting.” Or in more general terms, “see you later.” When the movie was released, it was the highest grossing rated R movie of all time. It was also the most expensive movie ever made at the time of its release. 

Debi Jenkins  4:52

SPOILER ALERT! Trivia Rewind – Sports Movie Trivia

Debi Jenkins 0:04
Hello Trivia Rewind listeners. I’m Debi Jenkins your host, or this week, your coach. In this episode of Trivia Rewind, you better be on your a-game, because we’re talking about 10 sports movies. In our fun facts segment, you’ll find out which actor admitted to using steroids so he could bulk up for his role. Before we get to the questions, here’s the pregame warmup where I’ll review how this works. First, I’ll ask you 10 questions. Then I’ll go back and review the questions and give you the answers plus some fun facts about each movie. Are you ready to hit the field? Let’s play Trivia Rewind.

Debi Jenkins 0:52
Here’s question one. In the 1976 film Rocky, what was the name of Rocky’s trainer and what was this trainers nickname?

Debi Jenkins 1:05
Question two. In the 2013 biographical sports film 42, actor Chadwick Boseman played which Major League Baseball player?

Debi Jenkins 1:19
Question three. In the 1986 movie Hoosiers, after Cletus Summers has a heart attack, Coach Norman Dale asks Wilbur “Shooter” Flatch to help as assistant coach on the team. What is the one major requirement the coach asks of Shooter?

Debi Jenkins 1:41
Question four. In the 1989 movie Field of Dreams, what is the phrase that Kevin Costner’s character first hears one night when walking through his cornfield, and in a vision, which early 1900s baseball player does he see?

Debi Jenkins 2:02
Question five. In the 1993 movie Rudy, at what university does Rudy dream of one day being on the football team?

Debi Jenkins 2:14
Questions six. In the 1989 movie Major League, to what city does the Cleveland Indians baseball owner want to relocate her team?

Debi Jenkins 2:27
Question seven. In which movie from the year 2000 does Denzel Washington play football coach Herman Boone?

Debi Jenkins 2:40
Question eight. In what 1992 movie does character Jimmy Dugan say, “there’s no crying in baseball?”

Debi Jenkins 2:51
Question nine. In the 1993 cult classic The Sandlot, the character Scotty secretly borrows a baseball from his stepfather that was autographed by which baseball player?

Debi Jenkins 3:07
And question 10. In the 1988 film Bull Durham, what nickname does Crash Davis call Nuke LaLoosh, which causes friction early on?

Debi Jenkins 3:22
Well, those were our 10 questions. Let’s go back and find out the answers.

Debi Jenkins 3:28
Question one. In the 1976 film Rocky, what was the name of Rocky’s trainer and what was this trainers nickname? Well, Rocky’s trainer was named Mickey Goldmill. His nickname was Mighty Mick. The role of Mickey was played by actor Burgess Meredith. Here’s some fun facts. The character Mickey was created by Sylvester Stallone. Did you know that Sylvester Stallone actually wrote the Rocky script, and he did it in just three days. When producers first saw the script, they wanted to buy it, but did not want him to play the role of Rocky. Stallone was basically poor at the time. He even had to sell his dog just to pay the bills. When they offered him money for the script, he could have made a big chunk of money and walked away, but he wasn’t going to let it go that easy. Thankfully, Stallone stood his ground and wouldn’t give up the script without getting to star in it. Eventually, the producers decided to give him the role, and one million dollars to make the movie. This was an extremely low budget for a film, but it was done. It was done so well that the film was nominated for multiple Academy Awards, and won 3, one of which was for Best Picture. And it was the highest grossing film in 1976. A true rags to riches story both on and off the screen.

Debi Jenkins 5:03
Question two. In the 2013 biographical sports film 42, actor Chadwick Boseman played which Major League Baseball player? The answer is Jackie Robinson. Many people consider Jackie Robinson to be the first black athlete to play in the major leagues. However, a few went before him decades earlier. Men such as Moses Fleetwood Walker and William Edward White. Therefore, Jackie Robinson is considered the first in the modern era. In 1997, Major League Baseball retired the number 42 across the sport of baseball. Here’s some fun facts. Actor Chadwick Boseman’s only baseball experience was as a child in little league. In a New York Times article from 2013, Boseman said his favorite sport was basketball. Boseman had weeks of training for his role as Jackie Robinson. He also had some help from a stunt man in some of the scenes. To help him prepare for the role he met with Hank Aaron and Jackie Robinson’s widow Rachel. Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played Jackie Robinson, died in August 2020 from complications related to colon cancer. Coincidentally, he died the same day that Major League Baseball celebrated Jackie Robinson Day. While Jackie Robinson Day is usually April 15, the Covid pandemic caused the date to be moved to August 28.

Debi Jenkins 6:40
Question three. In the 1986 movie Hoosiers, after Cletus Summers has a heart attack, coach Norman Dale asks Wilbur “Shooter” Flatch to help as assistant coach on the team. What is the one major requirement the coach asks of Shooter? Well, Shooter has to be sober around the team. The character Shooter was the alcoholic father of the player Everett. The actor that played Shooter was Dennis Hopper. He was nominated for an Oscar for his role. Here’s some fun facts. In the 1954 championship game scene, the actual announcer from the real game is the announcer in the movie scene. Did you know that in this two hour movie, if added up, there are only about six minutes of actual basketball played. Unfortunately for five college basketball players, the NCAA ordered a three game suspension for them because they were paid for their performance in the movie. Not only were they suspended, they were asked to return the money they made from doing the film. In some countries such as the United Kingdom, Hoosiers was released with the title “Best Shot.” Supposedly the worry was that people outside of the United States wouldn’t know what a Hoosier was.

Debi Jenkins 8:11
Question four. In the 1989 movie Field of Dreams, what is the phrase that Kevin Costner’s character first hears one night when walking through his cornfield, and in a vision what early 1900’s baseball player does he see? Well, he hears the phrase “If you build it, he will come” and he sees Shoeless Joe Jackson. No fans really know who voiced the line “If you build it, he will come.” The credits list “The Voice” as being played by “Himself.” It’s anyone’s guess. The year before Field of Dreams came out, Kevin Costner starred in another popular baseball movie Bull Durham. In a 2012 article, Ray Liotta the actor that played Shoeless Joe Jackson admitted that he never even watched the movie Field of Dreams. He told Mike Ryan, senior entertainment writer for The Huffington Post, that he hasn’t seen half the movies he’s been in. Well, I’d say he’s missing out.

Debi Jenkins 9:25
Question five. In the 1993 movie Rudy, at what university does Rudy dream of one day being on the football team? He wanted to be a member of the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Actor Sean Astin plays the role of Daniel Eugene “Rudy” Ruettiger. The real life Rudy has a cameo appearance in the film as a fan sitting in the stands. Did you know that football great Joe Montana was the backup quarterback on the 1975 team when Rudy was at Notre Dame? There is no mention of him in the movie. Actor Vince Vaughn had his first film role in the movie Hoosiers. He played the character Jamie O’Hara.

Debi Jenkins 10:14
Question six. In the 1989 movie Major League, to what city does the Cleveland Browns owner want to relocate her team? Well, she wanted to relocate them to Miami, Florida. Here’s some fun facts. In the film, actor Charlie Sheen plays baseball player Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn. In high school, Sheen actually played baseball, and he was good at it. So good he was offered a baseball scholarship at the University of Kansas. Unfortunately, he was expelled from high school a few weeks before graduation. Charlie Sheen literally bulked up for the film. He admitted to ESPN that he used steroids for six to eight weeks while filming Major League.

Debi Jenkins 11:04
Question seven. In which movie from the year 2000 does Denzel Washington play football coach Herman Boone? That movie was Remember the Titans. The movie is based on a true story. A lot of what they show you in the movie didn’t actually happen in real life. For example, in one scene, someone throws a brick through coach Boone’s window. In real life it was actually a toilet that was thrown through his window. Also TC Williams High School, the school the movie was based on was actually integrated several years earlier than the movie makes it look like. So when you see the words based on remember that it’s not a documentary it’s a fictional piece about a real event. At the end of the 1971 season, the Titans were ranked 13 and 0. Most games were actually complete blowouts and not close ones like the movie suggested.

Debi Jenkins 12:07
Question eight. In what 1992 movie does character Jimmy Dugan say “there’s no crying in baseball.” Well, that movie was A League of Their Own. Jimmy Dugan was played by actor Tom Hanks. That line was listed as one of the top 100 movie quotes of all time by the American Film Institute. The Rockford Peaches, the all female baseball team you see in the film was actually a real team that was part of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League during World War 2. Geena Davis plays the young Dottie Hinson. In part of the film, you’ll see an older Dottie. You may wonder if that’s Geena Davis made to look old. I mean, it is her voice that you hear. Well, actually, it’s another actress. Lynne Cartwright had the role of older Dottie. They just dubbed Geena Davis’s voice over hers. All along. I thought that older woman was Geena Davis with a really good makeup job or visual effects work.

Debi Jenkins 13:12
Question nine. In the 1993 cult classic The Sandlot, the character Scotty secretly borrows a baseball from his stepfather that was autographed by which baseball player? Well that ball was autographed by Babe Ruth. And I know when I watched it, I was thinking to myself, why in the world is he taking that baseball off of the shelf? Did you ever wonder if the Big Chief chewing tobacco the boys used was real. It was actually a mixture of beef jerky and licorice. The original film was co-written, narrated and directed by David Mickey Evans. Supposedly Disney Plus is developing a series based on the movie and has hired David Mickey Evans for this project as well. The film was set in 1962 and the new series is said to be set in 1984. In a Vanity article, it mentions that many of the members of the original cast will return. I know I’ll be waiting to hear more news about this one.

Debi Jenkins 14:20
And question 10. In the 1988 film Bull Durham, what nickname does Crash Davis call Nuke LaLoosh, which causes friction early on? Well, that nickname was “Meat.” Kevin Costner played Crash Davis and Tim Robbins played Nuke LaLoosh. Here’s some fun facts. Ron Shelton, the writer and director of Bulll Durham actually played minor league baseball. He was nominated for an Oscar in the category of Best Screenplay. Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins met while filming Bull Durham. While many think the couple was married, they were not. They were together for 23 years, until splitting up in 2009.

Debi Jenkins 15:08

Trivia Rewind – Midweek Movie Quotes – Where We’re Going We Don’t Need Roads

Debi Jenkins  0:04  
Well hello there Trivia Rewind listeners. It’s time for another bonus episode of Midweek Movie Quotes. I hope you’ve been having fun the last few weeks with these bonus episodes. Here’s how it works. I’ll read you five quotes from movies. Then I’ll go back and give you the answers and a few quick facts about each movie. Are you ready to play? 

Debi Jenkins  0:29  
Here’s quote one. “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father Prepare to die.” 

Debi Jenkins  0:39  
Quote two. “Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads.” 

Debi Jenkins  0:46  
Quote three. “Every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.”

Debi Jenkins  0:54  
Quote four. “I do wish we could chat longer, but I’m having an old friend for dinner.”

Debi Jenkins  1:02  
 And quote five. “I am serious. And don’t call me Shirley.”

Debi Jenkins  1:09  
 Those are our five quotes for this week. Let’s go back and see how you did. 

Debi Jenkins  1:16  
Quote one. “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Well, this well known movie line is from the movie The Princess Bride. This line was said by actor Mandy Patinkin as character Inigo Montoya, a Spanish fencer. Mandy Patinkin has told people this was his favorite movie role. Patinkin attended Juilliard and actor Kelsey Grammer was a classmate of his.

Debi Jenkins  1:52  
Quote two. “Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads.” This memorable line came from the 1985 movie Back to the Future. In the movie, Dr. Emmett Brown, the inventor of the time machine, says this to Marty McFly. This line occurs at the very end of the film when Doc says he’s going to take Marty to the year 2015. Well, unfortunately, in 2015, we still needed roads. Flying cars were not the thing. 

Debi Jenkins  2:29  
Quote three. “Every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.” Well, this famous quote comes from the 1946 Classic, It’s a Wonderful Life. Little Zuzu Bailey says this to her father at the end of the movie when a bell on the Christmas tree rings. Young Actress Carolyn Grimes play the role of Zuzu Bailey, daughter to Jimmy Stewart’s character, George. Here’s an interesting little fact. The movie was nominated for five Academy Awards. It won a Technical Achievement award at the Oscars for the development of a new method of simulating falling snow on Motion Picture sets. Well, I guess someone had to know how to do it. And we thank the special effects team at RKO for their award winning achievement. 

Debi Jenkins  3:26  
Quote four. “I do wish we could chat longer, but I’m having an old friend for dinner.” Well, I sure wouldn’t want to be the guest of that dinner party because that movie quote comes from the thriller, The Silence of the Lambs. The character Hannibal Lecter, played by Anthony Hopkins says this line to Clarice Starling played by actress Jodie Foster. This movie really cleaned it up at the Academy Awards. It took home five Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay. In the year 2003 the American Film Institute gave the character Hannibal Lecter the honor of being named the greatest villain in American cinema.

Debi Jenkins  4:17  
And quote five. “I am serious and don’t call me Shirley” Well this line comes from the movie Airplane and it said by Dr. Rumack portrayed by actor Leslie Nielsen. Leslie Nielsen saw a boost in his career after this movie. Actor Leslie Nielsen was born in Canada, and even enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force. After the movie airplane, his roles took a turn towards slapstick comedy. Even in death, Leslie Nielsen left a bit of humor. On his tombstone are the words “Let Er Rip”  a reference to his favorite practical joke, a portable hand-controlled fart machine. 

Debi Jenkins  5:03
