Trivia Rewind – Midweek TV Quotes – Friends Don’t Lie

Debi Jenkins 0:04
Hey there Trivia Rewind listeners. I’m Debi Jenkins, your host. It’s bonus episode time. Our last few bonus episodes have been about movie quotes. This week it’s all about television quotes. You’ll learn some fun facts about the actors who said the famous lines that we will discuss. I had fun doing all the research and now it’s your turn to have fun playing Trivia Rewind. Here’s how it works. I’ll read you five quotes from TV shows. Then I’ll go back and give you the answers and fun facts. When the episode is over, I’d love it if you’d go to Apple podcasts and write a positive review about Trivia Rewind. Are you ready to play?

Debi Jenkins 0:53
Here’s quote one. “Friends don’t lie.”

Debi Jenkins 0:59
Quote two. “Winter is coming.”

Debi Jenkins 1:04
Quote three. “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.”

Debi Jenkins 1:11
Quote four. “No soup for you.”

Debi Jenkins 1:16
And quote five. “Rut roh!”

Debi Jenkins 1:21
Those are the five quotes. Let’s go back and I’ll give you the answers and fun facts. Quote one. “Friends don’t lie.” This quote is said by the character Eleven on the show Stranger Things. Eleven is played by British actress Millie Bobby Brown. First of all, can you believe she’s only 16 years old. She was born in Spain, but her nationality is British. Millie Bobby Brown is deaf in one ear after being born with hearing loss. Her role as Eleven on Stranger Things was a huge springboard for her acting career. This breakout role earned her Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. When she took on the role, she didn’t realize she was going to have to shave her head but she went right along with it. Not only did she have to shave her head, she had her first kiss on the show when she had to kiss her co-star Finn Wolfhard. At the young age of 16 she already has her own production company, her own skincare line and she is the youngest person to ever be appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. She’s definitely on her way up.

Debi Jenkins 2:44
Quote two. “Winter is coming.” This quote comes from this series Game of Thrones. “Winter is coming” is the motto of house Stark. The first time this line was used was by Ned Stark, the head of house Stark. This role was played by English actor Sean Bean. Before Game of Thrones, Sean Bean was widely recognized for his role as Boromir on the Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. Bean has been married five times, has three kids and is even a grandfather. Sean Bean should not be confused with the quirky character Mr. Bean played by Rowan Atkinson. If you think that’s a ridiculous thing to say, it has actually happened multiple times when he’s received fan mail meant for the other Bean. And who would have guessed that this tough guy is afraid of flying. Supposedly during the filming of The Fellowship of the Ring, he would hike to their shooting location instead of going by helicopter with the rest of the actors. And he was in full costume when he made the hike.

Debi Jenkins 3:56
Quote three. “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.” This line comes from the show Friday Night Lights. Coach Eric Taylor says this line. Eric Taylor is played by actor Kyle Chandler. Unlike most shows, Friday Night Lights was filmed on location. The only thing made for the show was the locker room. All five seasons were filmed in the Austin, Texas area. Peter Berg the executive producer required that the show be filmed in Texas. It has been reported that the actors never rehearsed their roles. They just went for it. The producers wanted the acting to be authentic. Actor Kyle Chandler and his family must have liked Texas because they left their Los Angeles home and bought 33 acres in Dripping Springs, Texas, where he’s even been a volunteer firefighter.

Debi Jenkins 4:53
Quote four. “No soup for you.” Well, this line comes from the sitcom Seinfeld, and it is said by the Soup Nazi. Actor Larry Thomas played the Soup Nazi on the popular show. The character was inspired by a real life soup vendor in New York City. Supposedly the vendor made it known that he was quite offended, saying the whole Soup Nazi thing ruined his life and he demanded an apology. However, something good did come out of the Soup Nazi character. Actor Larry Thomas has used his celebrity status to help homeless shelters and soup kitchens. Larry Thomas was nominated for an Emmy Award for his guest performance on the show.

Debi Jenkins 5:40
Quote five. “Rut Roh!” This quote was actually heard on two different shows. The very first show was The Jetsons and the second show was Scooby Doo. On The Jetsons it was said by the dog Astro. On Scooby Doo, it was said by Scooby himself. Both Astro and Scooby were Great Danes. Don Messick was the voice actor for both Astro and Scooby. Astro from 1962 to 1963, and Scooby from 1969 to 1996. Over the years, he voiced many characters in over 100 programs. When he was a young teenager, he taught himself the art of ventriloquism where he learned to do many of his voices. In 1944 when drafted into the Army, he took along his ventriloquist dummy and entertained the troops.

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
Well, that’s it for this week’s episode. Ten questions aren’t enough to cover all the great sports movies ever made. I’ll do another episode on sports movies in the future.

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  
And with that we close out this Midweek Movie Quotes bonus episode of Trivia Rewind. I hope you had fun and learned something new.

SPOILER ALERT! Trivia Rewind – 1970s TV Show Trivia

Debi Jenkins  0:04  
Hello Trivia Rewind listeners. This is Debi Jenkins your host. Let’s go back to the groovy decade of the 1970s, shag carpet. If you grew up in this decade, you’ll remember having to wait until Saturday morning for cartoons to come on. And speaking of the TV, we didn’t have a remote. We were the remote. This meant we had to get up and turn the dial ourselves. We also had to adjust the antenna to get the show to come in clearer. Times have sure changed. But some of the TV shows that came out of that decade are unforgettable. And that’s what we’re talking about this week on Trivia Rewind. 

Debi Jenkins  0:50  
Here’s a quick review of how Trivia Rewind works. First, I’ll read you 10 questions. Then I’ll go back and review the questions and give you the answers as well as a few fun facts about each show. Are you ready? Let’s play Trivia Rewind. 

Debi Jenkins  1:09  
Question one. The TV show All In The Family discussed many controversial topics and character Archie Bunker was always at odds with his son-in-law nicknamed what?

Debi Jenkins  1:22  
 Question two.  In the 1972 series, The Waltons, what famous line from the show is said in the sequence that closes out each episode?

Debi Jenkins  1:37  
Question three. On what television series does John Ritter play the character Jack Tripper? 

Debi Jenkins  1:47  
Question four. The long running series Little House on the Prairie was centered around what family? 

Debi Jenkins  1:58  
Question five. In the sitcom The Jeffersons, what kind of successful business was George Jefferson the owner of?

Debi Jenkins  2:11  
Question six. In what war was the television series MASH set? 

Debi Jenkins  2:20  
Question  seven. On the popular series Happy Days first telecast in 1974, what is the popular three word catchphrase that the character Fonzie would often say? 

Debi Jenkins  2:36  
Question eight. On the show Facts of Life, what is the name of the house mother at the Eastland School, an all girls boarding school? 

Debi Jenkins  2:49  
Question nine. On the show The Brady Bunch, what is the name of the family’s dog? 

Debi Jenkins  3:00  
Question 10. What spin off from Happy Days featured two roommates that worked as bottle cappers in the Shotz Brewery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin?

Debi Jenkins  3:14  
 Well, those are the questions. Let’s go back and I’ll give you the answers and fun facts. Question one. The TV show All in the Family discussed many controversial topics and character Archie Bunker was always at odds with his son-in-law nicknamed what? The nickname of his son-in-law was Meathead. Many consider All in the Family to be one of the greatest television shows of all time. Did you know that it was the first major American TV series to be taped in front of a live studio audience? Canned laughter was never used in this show. It was all the real thing. And here’s a history making event worth making noise about. All in the Family had the first audible toilet flush on TV. Before this show, the first time a toilet was even seen on TV was on Leave it to Beaver in 1957. 

Debi Jenkins  4:16  
Question two. In the 1972 series The Waltons, what famous line from the show is said in the sequence that closes out each episode? Well, the answer is, “Goodnight John Boy” and it was said by Elizabeth Walton, the sister of John Boy. After her line everyone else in the family was told goodnight but for some reason the goodnight John Boy is the only one that stuck. If you grew up in the 70s I’d be surprised if your family didn’t use that line at least once. I know ours did, more than once. Here’s a fun fact about The Waltons. A replica of The Walton house has remained on the Warner Brothers lot in Burbank, California. The exterior was used as the pre-renovated Dragonfly Inn on the show Gilmore Girls. 

Debi Jenkins  5:14  
Question three. On what television series does John Ritter play the character Jack Tripper? Well, that show was Three’s Company. This show ran for eight seasons. John Ritter was the only cast member to be in every single episode. Actor Billy Crystal tried out for the role of Jack Tripper. In the 1970s Three’s Company was considered a controversial show. It fell into a category called “jiggle television.” 

Debi Jenkins  5:49  
Question four.  The long running series Little House on the Prairie was centered around what family?  Well, that was the Ingalls family. In season one, the Ingalls family included Charles, Caroline, Mary, Laura and Carrie. A few other family members were added as the seasons went on. While the show looked real pure from your TV set, things going on behind the scenes were quite the opposite. There was a lot of drinking on the set. It was not uncommon for Michael Landon to be drinking vodka throughout the day. In her autobiography, Melissa Gilbert talks about Michael Landon and the crew abusing alcohol. Did you know that actor Jason Bateman was in 21 episodes of Little House on the Prairie. He played the character James. He was adopted by the Ingalls family after his parents were killed in a wagon accident. Today Jason Bateman is really pretty well known for his show Ozark which is on Netflix. 

Debi Jenkins  6:56  
Question five. In the sitcom, The Jeffersons, what kind of successful business was George Jefferson the owner of? Well, he owned a chain of dry cleaning stores. Here’s a fun fact. The Jeffersons is one of the longest running sitcoms with 11 seasons. Unfortunately, it was abruptly canceled and the lead actor Sherman Hemsley found out about the cancellation by reading about it in the newspaper. Real classy CBS. Actress Isabelle Sanford set records by being the first African American actress to win an Emmy Award in the category of Best Actress in a Comedy Series. 

Debi Jenkins  7:43  
Question six. In what war was the television series MASH set? That was the Korean War. While laugh tracks were all the rage back then, they agreed not to use a laugh track in the scenes that were set in the operating room. Probably a smart idea. Usually there isn’t much laughing going on in a surgical hospital in the middle of a war zone. MASH wasn’t the only time you’d see Alan Alda in the role of doctor.  In 1999, he was in five episodes of the hit show ER, playing Dr. Gabriel Lawrence. MASH was nominated for an amazing 100 plus Emmy Awards over its 11 year run. 

Debi Jenkins  8:31  
Question seven. On the popular series Happy Days, first telecast in 1974, what is the popular three word catchphrase that the character Fonzie would often say? It was “sit on it.” Happy Days ran for 11 seasons and was one of ABCs longest running primetime programs in the ABC network’s history. Seven shows spun off of Happy Days. They were Laverne and Shirley, Blanksy’s Beauties, Mork and Mindy, Out of the Blue, Joanie Loves Chachi, and then two animated series, The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang, and Laverne and Shirley with the Fonz. 

Debi Jenkins  9:16  
Question eight. On the show Facts of Life, what is the name of the house mother at the Eastland School, an all girls boarding school? Her name was Mrs. Garrett, and she was played by actress Charlotte Rae. Did you know that the Facts of Life was a spinoff from the Diff’rent Strokes television series. Mrs. Garrett was the housekeeper for the Drummond family on that series. One of the people that wrote the theme song for the series was actor Alan Thicke. You’ll remember him as Jason Seaver on Growing Pains.

Debi Jenkins  9:52  
Question nine. On the show The Brady Bunch, what is the name of the family’s dog? The dog’s name was Tiger. If you watched the pilot episode, you may have noticed the girls had a pet cat named Fluffy. Fluffy never appeared in any other episodes. The Brady Bunch was never nominated for any awards during its run, even though it seems like it was such a popular show and it is still watched today. Recently, the Brady kids reunited for an HGTV show called A Very Brady Renovation. They came together to renovate the actual house that was used for exterior shots in the 1970s Brady Bunch series. This HGTV series was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in the Outstanding Structured Reality Program category. 

Debi Jenkins  10:48  
And question 10. What spin off from Happy Days featured two roommates that worked as bottle cappers in the Shotz brewery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin? The answer is Laverne and Shirley. The actors that portrayed Laverne and Shirley were Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams. Here’s a fun fact. Penny Marshall’s brother is Gary Marshall, a creator and executive producer of the series. In 2013, the two actresses were reunited on the Nickelodeon show Sam and Cat. It had been 30 years since they were in a scripted show together and this show rekindled their friendship. 

Debi Jenkins  11:33  
Well, those were our 10 trivia questions about just a few of the great shows from the 1970s. The next time you hear a toilet flush, maybe you’ll think about the All in the Family series.

SPOILER ALERT! Trivia Rewind – 1980s TV Show Trivia

[00:00:00]Debi Jenkins: [00:00:00] Hello Trivia Rewind listeners, Debi here. This week, we are going back to the 1980s. There are so many great television series that aired during the eighties, and we’ll talk about ten this week. One of the shows we’ll talk about was listed as the top television show of all time by TV Guide. And during this decade one actor was given the Guinness Book of World’s Records title of The Most Watched Man on Television of all Time. So let’s rewind a few decades and see what you remember. Here’s a quick review of how Trivia Rewind works.  I’ll read you 10 questions, then I’ll go back and review the questions and give you the answers as well as a few fun facts about each show. Are you ready? Let’s play. 

[00:00:54] Question one. Which 1986 TV series featured an alien from the [00:01:00] planet Melmac?  Question two.  The series Chips was about two California motorcycle cops who were partners. What were their names? Question three.  What 1982 series featured an artificially intelligent black car named KITT and what was KITT an acronym for?  Question four. In season two of Full House, what is the name of the morning show that character Danny Tanner co-hosts? Question five. In the series Cheers, what is the name of the character that sits in the same seat at the bar every day. And when he enters the bar, what does everyone say?

[00:01:51] Question six. In the series, Family Ties, what is the name of the [00:02:00] character played by Michael J.  Fox? Question seven.  In  the show, Growing Pains,  what is the name of Mike’s honors student sister? Question eight. In the sitcom Family Matters. what is the name of the Winslow’s nerdy neighbor? Question nine. The long running sitcom Seinfeld is described as a show about what?

[00:02:32] And for a bonus question, what is the name of Jerry’s neighbor with the trademark hairdo? And question 10. In the hit comedy, The Golden Girls, what were the names of the four characters that shared a house in Miami? And for an extra question, what dessert did those girls love to eat?

[00:02:59] Well, [00:03:00] those are our 10 questions. Let’s go back and review and I’ll give you the answers and fun facts. Question one. Which 1986 TV series featured an alien from the planet Melmac? That was ALF and ALF is the acronym for Alien Life Form. Here’s a fun fact.  In early episodes of the series you see ALF drinking alcohol. Well, NBC put the brakes on that because they wanted the show to be more family friendly.

[00:03:32] And here’s a cool fact. All of the episode titles are song titles, such as Wild Thing, and Come Fly with Me. How fun to be the person that got to pick a song title for each of the nearly 100 episodes of the series.

[00:03:48]Question two.  The series CHiPS was about to California motorcycle cops who were partners. What were their names?

[00:03:57] Well, their names were Ponch [00:04:00] and John. Ponch had the reputation of being a troublemaker and John was more straight-laced. During the filming of the series there was a lot of tension between the two actors. Their names were Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox. In season five, Erik Estrada, the actor that played Ponch, he went on strike over a monetary dispute and he was temporarily replaced by Bruce Jenner. In an ABC news interview

[00:04:27] Erik Estrada said that Ponch and John never drew their guns on the show. Why? Because of the time of day it was on. Many families watch TV during this time slot. When the show started, Erik Estrada had never written a motorcycle before. And here’s a hard fact to stomach. Erik Estrada turned 71 years old in 2020.

[00:04:53] Question three. What 1982 series featured an artificially intelligent black [00:05:00] car named KITT and what was KITT an acronym for? That show was Knight Rider. And KITT stands for Knight Industries Two Thousand. Here’s something you probably have no idea about .The Guinness Book of World ‘s Records gave star David Hasselhoff  the honor of being named The Most Watched Man on Television of all time. His two most popular roles were on Knight Rider and Baywatch.

[00:05:29] And speaking of KITT, KITT was a modified 1982 Pontiac Trans am. I bet you didn’t know that the voice of KITT was provided by actor William Daniels who played Mr. Feeney on Boy Meets World. I thought that was a pretty cool fact.

[00:05:48] Question four. In season two of Full House, what is the name of the morning show that character Danny Tanner co-hosts? The answer is Wake [00:06:00] Up San Francisco and his co-host was Rebecca Donaldson. Here’s a fun fact. The family’s dog in this series named Comet,  well, that was also Buddy in the original Air Bud movie.  And John Stamos, the actor who played Uncle Jesse, well, he has performed on tour with the Beach Boys. He can even be seen in their Kokomo music video.

[00:06:25] Question five. In the series Cheers, what is the name of the character that sits in the same seat at the bar every day? And when he enters the bar, what does everyone say? Well, that character is Norm Peterson played by actor George Wendt. Whenever he would enter the bar, everyone would yell “Norm!” Well, almost everyone. The barmaid Diane would call him Norman. Did you know that Norm is actually his middle name. His official first name was [00:07:00] Hillary, the same name of his grandfather. Have you ever wondered if Norm was drinking real beer? Well in a Fox News article, it mentions that he wasn’t drinking real beer, but instead something called Near Beer. It did have 3% alcohol.

[00:07:18]Well, not everything starts off on a high note.  The first week that Cheers debuted, it came in last in the Nielsen ratings. Because of this, the series was almost cancelled. It ended up running from 1982 to 1993 and in its last season, it placed first in the ratings and everyone knew its name. Ted Danson, the actor that played Sam Malone actually went to bartending school to prepare for his role as bartender in the show. The show’s creators did their part too. They visited bars to listen to conversations of bar patrons. Some of that dialogue was [00:08:00] actually used in the show’s scripts.

[00:08:03] Question six. In the series, Family Ties, what is the name of the character played by Michael J. Fox? The character’s name is Alex P Keaton.  In the series Alex was a staunch Republican while his parents were liberal ex-hippies.  For  his role Michael J. Fox won three Emmy awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Speaking of Alex, Matthew Broderick could have had the role of Alex, but he didn’t want to move to California. Family Ties was so popular that President Ronald Reagan once said that it was his favorite show. Maybe it had something to do with Alex being a Reagan Republican.

[00:08:50] Question seven. In the show Growing Pains, what is the name of Mike’s honors student sister? Well, her name is [00:09:00] Carol and she was played by actress Tracey Gold. Here’s a fun fact. Tracey Gold and Kirk Cameron, the actor that played Mike, had actually worked together once before.  They were in a McDonald’s commercial and in the commercial, they played brother and sister.

[00:09:18] Speaking of brother and sister, you probably already know this, but Kirk Cameron is the real life brother to Full House actress, Candace Cameron. The theme song titled As Long As We Got Each Other was so popular that in 1989, it made it to number seven on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

[00:09:41] And here’s kind of a gross fun fact. In an ABC interview, Alan Thicke, the actor who played Mike’s father. Well, he said that before each episode, the cast had a ritual where they’d stick their chewed up piece of gum in a pile. By the end of the series, that pile of gum [00:10:00] weighed 11 pounds. Now that is gross.

[00:10:03]Question eight. In the sitcom Family Matters, what is the name of the Winslow’s nerdy neighbor? Well, his name was Urkel and he was played by actor Jaleel White. The nerdy Urkel was cast to be a one-time character, but as you know, he ended up with a full time role on the series. The popularity of the character caused some division on the set between Jaleel White and the other cast members. Did you know that Family Matters was a spinoff from the series  Perfect Strangers?

[00:10:38] Question nine.  The long running sitcom Seinfeld is described as a show about what? And for a bonus question, what is the name of Jerry’s neighbor with the trademark hair? Well, Seinfeld is described as a show about nothing and Jerry’s neighbor is [00:11:00] Cosmo Kramer played by actor Michael Richards.

[00:11:03] Here are a few fun facts about the show. When Steven Spielberg was in Poland filming Schindler’s List, he would watch episodes of Seinfeld to help pull him out of the depression he often felt. And remember the episode with the puffy pirate shirt? Well, Jerry Seinfeld donated that shirt to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. Seinfeld was ranked by TV guide as the best TV show of all time.

[00:11:35] And question 10 . In the hit comedy The Golden Girls, what were the names of the four characters that shared a house in Miami? And for a bonus question, what dessert did they love to eat? Well, these were the four Golden Girls. They were Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia, and they loved cheesecake.

[00:12:00] [00:12:00] Well, how’s this for souvenirs. The actress Rue McClanahan who played Blanche, well, she supposedly got to keep all of the outfits that she wore on the show. It was reported that she had a clause in her contract allowing her to do so. Well lucky her. And speaking of that cheesecake, during the filming of the series, the ladies ate over 100 cheesecakes. In real life, actress Bea Arthur, she’s the one that played Dorothy,  she actually hated cheesecake. So that was no treat for her.

[00:12:35] Well, those are our trivia questions for this week. I hope you enjoyed going back to the eighties. There are so many more shows from the eighties that we can do trivia about. So we’ll do some more on another episode sometime soon.

“Houston, We Have a Problem”

This week on Trivia Rewind, I introduced a new weekly episode series I will be doing. It’s called Midweek Movie/TV Quotes. I’ll give you five famous movie or TV quotes and you’ll have to guess which movie or TV series it came from. After I give you the answers, I’ll give you fun facts!

And here’s a new extra cool feature. I want YOU to call in to the Trivia Rewind listener hotline and leave your favorite movie quote.  I may use your audio recording in one of our future bonus episodes.  All you have to do is call (323) 364-7019.  Leave your first name and read your movie quote. Then give us the answer.  

Below you’ll find an example question from our first episode. Then at the end, get the full transcript from this episode.

WHAT MOVIE IS THIS QUOTE FROM?

“Houston, we have a problem.”

ANSWER:

Apollo 13 – In the film you will hear actor Tom Hanks say the line.  Watch the clip on YouTube.

FUN FACT:

This popular quote is actually not quite the correct quote from the actual Apollo 13 mission.  Astronaut Jack Swigert first says “Okay, Houston, we’ve had a problem here” and then when NASA asks them to repeat, astronaut Jim Lovell says “Ah, Houston, we’ve had a problem.”   The screenwriter made the change because the original verb tense wasn’t as dramatic. I recently watched the movie version and the actual event’s NASA recording on YouTube. The movie WAS more dramatic. But that would have been the acting and the score. Watch a short video from NASA about the actual event and hear the recording as it happened.

Here is the transcript from this episode.

Debi Jenkins: [00:00:00]

Debi Jenkins: [00:00:03] Hey Trivia Rewind listeners. This is Debi Jenkins your host. It’s the middle of the week and time for a bonus episode. This segment is called Midweek Movie Quotes. It’ll be a fun shorter version of my weekly episodes and centered around quotes that you know from movies. I’m going to read you five quotes and then I’ll go back and give you the answers and tell you may be a fact or two about each movie. And here’s a new extra cool feature. I want you to call into the Trivia Rewind listener hotline and leave your favorite movie quote. I may use your recording in one of our future bonus episodes. All you have to do is call 3 2 3 3 6 4 7 0 1 9. Leave your first name and read your movie quote and answer. You can also find that phone number on triviarewind.com.

Debi Jenkins: [00:01:06] Are you ready to play? Here’s quote number one. Houston we have a problem.

Debi Jenkins: [00:01:15] Quote number two. My precious.

Debi Jenkins: [00:01:20] Quote number three. I Feel the need, the need for speed.

Debi Jenkins: [00:01:27] Quote number four. I see dead people.

Debi Jenkins: [00:01:32] And quote number five.Carpe diem seize the day boys. Make your lives extraordinary.

Debi Jenkins: [00:01:40] Were those too easy? Well let’s go back and find out.

Debi Jenkins: [00:01:44] Quote One. Houston we have a problem. That is from the movie Apollo 13. In the film you will hear actor Tom Hanks say the line. This popular quote is actually not quite the correct quote from the actual Apollo 13 mission. Astronaut Jack Swigert first says, “OK Houston, we’ve had a problem here.” And then when NASA asks them to repeat, astronaut Jim Lovell says, “Ah Houston, we’ve had a problem.” Well the screenwriter made the change because the original verb tense wasn’t as dramatic. And I say I’d have to agree because I recently went to YouTube and watched this part from the movie and I watched the NASA recording. The movie definitely was more dramatic but that would probably have to do with the acting and the dramatic score that went along with it.

Debi Jenkins: [00:02:40] Here’s quote number two. My precious. Well that was from the Lord of the Rings Two Towers movie and the character Gollum says this line. He uses it when referring to the ring. This ring sure caused a lot of problems so I don’t know why Gollum thinks it’s so precious. It is next to impossible to damage. The only way you can destroy that ring would be to throw it into the volcanic pit at Mt. Doom, the place where the ring had been forged.

Debi Jenkins: [00:03:13] Quote three. I feel the need, the need for speed. Well this quote comes from Tom Cruise’s character Maverick in the hit movie Top Gun. I don’t know about you but I was sure looking forward to the new Top Gun movie that was set to be released this summer. Covid put that one on the back burner and we’ll have to wait until 2021. Did you know that actor Matthew Modine actually turned down the role for Maverick in Top Gun? In a New York Magazine article Modine said he turned it down because he didn’t agree with the film’s politics.

Debi Jenkins: [00:03:50] Quote four. I see dead people. This line was said by the character Cole in the movie The Sixth Sense. Cole was played by actor Haley Joel Osment. Osment was nominated for an Oscar for his role in this movie. It was a big breakout role for Haley Joel Osment. He was the second youngest performer to receive an Oscar nomination for a supporting actor role.

Debi Jenkins: [00:04:16] And quote five. Carpe diem. Seize the day boys. Make your lives extraordinary. That line was said by Robin Williams’ character John Keating in Dead Poets Society. Most of Robin Williams’ roles before this were of a comedic nature. This was one of his first more serious roles. He was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for his role in Dead Poets Society. And supposedly, he improvised about 15 percent of his dialogue which should surprise no one.

Debi Jenkins: [00:04:49] Well that’s it for our bonus episode Midweek Movie Quotes. I hope you had fun while waiting for the next Trivia Rewind episode to come out in just a few days.

Hey trivia fans. This week we are talking Pixar Animation and their blockbuster movies.

Debi Jenkins 2:52
of Barley’s van?

Debi Jenkins 2:55
Well, those

Debi Jenkins 2:56
are your questions. Let’s go back and review and I’ll give you the answers and fun facts.

Debi Jenkins 3:05
Question one. In the 2001 comedy

Debi Jenkins 3:08
Monsters Inc., what is the name of the city where Sully and Mike Wazowski live? And for a bonus question, what does Sully call the little girl he befriends in the movie? The answer is Monstropolis and Sully calls the little girl Boo. Here’s a fun fact, Boo’s real name was never said in the movie, but you can see what her name is when she shows Sully a crayon drawing. The name written on the drawing is Mary. The little girl who was the voice of Boo was actually named Mary.

Debi Jenkins 3:43
Question two.

Debi Jenkins 3:45
In the 1995 movie Toy Story, what is the name of the restaurant that Andy and his family go to? And which toy does Andy take with him? The name of the restaurant is Pizza Planet and the toy Andy takes with him is Woody. Speaking of Pizza Planet, did you know that Pixar has put the Pizza Planet truck in all of their films since Toy Story? Next time you watch a Pixar movie, look for the truck because it will be in there. And here’s something you may not have known. Toy Story was the very first computer animated feature film and the first animated film to be nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar. Question three. In the 2003 movie Finding Nemo, what is the name of Nemo’s over-protective father? His name was Marlin. Here’s a sad fact. Nemo’s mom Cora was the first female Pixar character to die. That was definitely a sad scene in the movie. On a happier note, Finding Nemo won an Academy Award for Best Animated Film. Question four. In the 2015 Pixar film Inside Out, how many emotions were personified inside of the character Riley’s head, and huge bonus points if you can name them all. The answer is five. They were joy, sadness, anger, fear, and disgust. When this was shown at the Cannes Film Festival, it received an eight minute standing ovation. That is unbelievable. Inside Out won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Between those two things the emotion of joy must have appeared among the Pixar people. Question five. In the 2004 movie, The Incredibles, what was the name of the youngest child in The Incredibles’ family? His name was Jack Jack. Here’s an interesting fact. This was Pixar’s first film to be rated PG. And the incredible brought home another Oscar for Pixar with a Best Animated Feature Film win. Question six. In the 2006 Pixar movie Cars, what was the name of the old rundown desert town where Lightning McQueen found himself? The answer is Radiator Springs. Paul Newman voice the character of Doc Hudson. This was Newman’s last feature film before his death in 2008. And this was the first Pixar film to be released on Blu Ray. Questions seven. In the 2007 film Ratatouille, what is the famous motto of Chef Gusteau? Gusteau’s famous motto was Anyone Can Cook. If you look at a Ratatouille movie poster you will notice the name is also spelled phonetically. Pixar was worried that people, well mainly children would not know how to pronounce the word. And I don’t think I ever noticed that on the posters so I’m going to have to look up a poster online. Question eight. In the 2009 movie Up, what is the name of the place that Ellie and Carl save up money to visit one day? That place is Paradise Falls. Sadly, as an old man, Carl does eventually buy tickets to go to Paradise Falls, but Ellie dies before they can go. And here’s another fun fact. Did you notice that the tree where Carl and Ellie go picnicking is the same tree from the Bug’s Life movie? I love how Pixar continues to incorporate things like this into their movies. It makes me really want to pay attention the next time I watch a Pixar film. Up won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Question nine. In the 2017 Pixar film Coco, what is it that the character Miguel dreams of becoming but his family strictly forbids? And for a bonus question, what kind of business does Miguel’s family have? Here’s your answer. Miguel wants to become a musician. Well, Miguel’s grandmother and her child were abandoned after her husband left him to pursue a musical career. And that’s why music was banned by his family. And the other answer is his family are shoemakers. And a fun fact. In the movie, you’ll see three pinatas that just happen to be characters from two other Pixar movies. They are Woody and Buzz from Toy Story and Mike Wazowski from Monster’s Inc. You’ll have to watch that movie and look for those three pinatas.

Debi Jenkins 8:47
Question 10.

Debi Jenkins 8:49
In the 2020 hit Onward,

Debi Jenkins 8:51
what is the name of Barley’s van?

Debi Jenkins 8:55
The name of the van is Guenivere.

Debi Jenkins 8:58
And if you’d like to see a cool walk around video of Guenivere, I found a video on YouTube and I’m going to list it on our Twitter page. Here’s a not so fun fact, the Covid-19 pandemic hit just a couple of weeks after the release of Onward. In its second week at theatres, the ticket sales plummeted a whopping 73%. Due to this, Disney released it digitally early and that’s how many of us got to see the movie. Well, those are our trivia questions from today. I know I learned some new things about Pixar movies and I’ll be watching them closer next time.
