These Are Totally the Answers to the '80s Movie Quiz!

So, I thought the turnout for the music quiz was bad. Only 10 brave souls bothered to take the movie quiz. I guess some people (*cough*Falwless*cough*) just couldn't spare any precious porn-surfing time.

Proving that she's not a neo-maxi zoom dweebie is Kat, who takes top honors with her score of 15 out of 21 points! For that, Kat, I tip my hat...and I give you this major award.

Coming in at 2nd place with 13 points is Ria, and all tied up at 3rd place with 12 points each are Malcolm and Jon. Each runner up gets a free subscription to my blog and this framed photo of John Kapelos.

And now...the answers!

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?"
The Breakfast Club

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

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

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

5. "You are the vulgarian, you fuck."
A Fish Called Wanda

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.)
A: $2.00!!!!

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

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

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!)
A: Darrel (Darry), Sodapop, Ponyboy, Dallas (Dally), Johnny, Keith (Two-Bit), and Steve

7. Which three musicians played The Three Most Important People in the World in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure?
A: Clarence Clemons (The E Street Band), Fee Waybill (The Tubes), and Martha Davis (The Motels)
Jon was the only one to get this question right, although I should give half a point to Kat for at least knowing who they all were, even if she didn't know all of their names. Then again, Kat really doesn't need any extra points.

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?)
A: The Wild Life; Bananarama

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

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.)
A: 4K
No one got this right, as I kind of expected. I do think it's funny though that Tony Alva remembered that the late Vincent Schiavelli played the guy who delivered Chuck's sandwich and smeared mustard on his door frame. Surprising then, that he didn't remember Vincent stomping down the hall, then yelling, "Where the fuck is 4K??" When Chuck says, "What?" he replies, "Excuse me, I didn't know you wuz deaf...4K!!!" For some reason, I love that part of the movie. I actually applied for a job once with a company called 4K Entertainment and I was praying to God that I would get hired just so I could say that line every day. It would have never gotten old. Alas, it wasn't in the stars.

I was gonna play - then I thought, "Na", give someone else a chance to feel like a winner.

Way to go Kat!

I only got, like, 2 right in each section (or maybe only one in that last section). This just proves I am way younger and more fabulous than everyone else.

Congrats, Kat!

I clearly need to be stripped of my "Movie Expert" title.

wow! Thanks BeckEye - I've always longed for a Major Award! Mind power, I tell you.

I have displayed it proudly in my front window - you should see what it looks like from out here! "It's indescribably beautiful - like the Fourth of July!"

Knot said...

Wow ... that was cool.


Tony Alva said...

4K!!! Damn. Shoulda had that. I saw poor Vincent Schiavelli playing the ghost of the subway system in the lame Demi Moore Patrick Swayz flick 'Ghost'. His best roll was in "One Flew Over The Cookoo's Nest" in which he asks nurse Rachett, "So are you saying it's crazy to want to be alone?"

I should have had the Wierd Science photo too. One of the best scenes in that masterpiece, "What's this boy talkin 'bout the telephone, somebody 'splain it to'em..."

I'm sort of turned on Jon did so well.



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.
