It's Totally an '80s Movie Quiz!

Okay, so maybe you dopes dear people will do better with movie trivia. And, I'm sorry if you don't like trivia in general, but I'm taking off for the long weekend so this is all I have to offer you. I expect to have plenty of emails upon my return.

I tried to make this easier than the music quiz, but the basic set-up is essentially the same. The quiz is broken into three parts: quote ID, scene ID, and general trivia. The rules are also the same: (1) No Googling, Yahooing, using a lifeline, or whatever else lousy cheaters do to get the answers, and (2) Do not answer the questions in the comments section. Even if you only know one or two, you still may not e-blurt them out in the comments section, thus ruining the game for everyone else, Dale. I mean, Mathdude. Um, I mean, no one in particular. Email all answers to me via this magical link.

Okay, ready? Action! (I know, I know...that's so lame.)

Part I: Quotes - Identify the movie that belongs to each quote.
(1 pt each)

1. "Uh, Dick? Excuse me. Rich? Will milk be made available to us?"

2. "Suck my fat one, you cheap dime store hood."

3. "He's an idiot. Comes from upbringing. His parents are probably idiots too."

4. "Son, you got a panty on your head."

5. "You are the vulgarian, you fuck."

Part II: Scenes

Identify the movie that corresponds to each still frame.

(1 pt each)

Part III: General Trivia
(1 pt each, unless otherwise specified)

1. In Better Off Dead, how much did Lane owe the paperboy? (Note: This is what's known as a "gimme." I will endlessly, publicly mock anyone who does not know this.)

2. According to Raymond Babbitt, which airline never had a crash?

3. Originally created as Cheech and Chong Join the Army, the script was rewritten to become this 1981 comedy. Name it.

4. In 1985, The Color Purple received 11 Oscar nominations. How many did it win?

a. 0
b. 1
c. 5
d. 8
e. 11

5. Which of these actors was not considered for the role of Ferris Bueller?

a. Johnny Depp
b. Emilio Estevez
c. Tom Cruise
d. Michael J. Fox
e. Robert Downey, Jr.

6. What are the first names (or nicknames) of the seven main greasers in The Outsiders? (Note: It's all or nothing, kids. You have to know all seven to get the point!)

7. Which three musicians played The Three Most Important People in the World in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure?

8. This oft-forgotten 1984 flick, which starred Chris Penn and Eric Stoltz, was considered a sequel to Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Name it. (Bonus point: Who sang the theme song?)

9. Who taught John Travolta how to do the two-step for Urban Cowboy?

10. What was Chuck's apartment number in Night Shift? (This question isn't as random as it seems. If you love this movie like I do, you'll understand.)

More work? Did you not realize that I am now a lazy unemployed bastard?

I already know I'm going to flame out on this test. I don't think we've ever been in the same aisle at the video store.

My head hurts - must have an 80's hangover!

Good work.

1. In Better Off Dead, how much did Lane owe the paperboy? (Note: This is what's known as a "gimme." I will endlessly, publicly mock anyone who does not know this.)

Let the endless public mocking commence, because I have absolutely no idea nor have I even ever seen that frickin' movie.

I hate you. I hate you and the dumb horse this trivia quiz rode in on. *arms crossed*

Mathdude said...

These are too hard, Beckeye. You need a few more "easy" ones if you want to hold our attention.

Falwless - $2! I want my $2! Dogpile on Falwless, boys!

SkylersDad said...

Can you dumb it down just a tad more, perhaps to "who is buried in Grant's tomb" level?

Moxie said...

I've never seen Better Off Dead either. So move over, Falwless. Coach has benched both of us for the season.

Kristi Mantoni said...

I can answer two and that's it. Boy, I think smoked too much during the 80's.

Dr Zibbs said...

Are you able to produce this in print form and mail it to me?

genn6 said...

Great. I know movies way less than music. There's no chance..

Coaster Punchman said...

Ok, I know some of these but I'm not 100% sure about any of the pictures except for one!

Coaster Punchman said...

I've never seen B.O.D. but I still knew that answer! What does this define me as?

Coaster Punchman said...

And the Ferris Bueller thing is really going to bug me so you should tell us the answer.

words words words said...

Hey, who wins? I'm dying to find out how close I came to almost winning.

This is what I think: Better Off Dead (film)


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
