Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Dennis Guilder. Dennis says this when he arrives at Arnie's house on New Year's Eve. Dennis's father offers to take Dennis home, but, with Arnie standing there, says, "No, Arnie'll bring me home... if that rustbucket will start that is."
"Oh-oh, watch what you call my car," Arnie said. "She's very sensitive."
"Is she?" Dennis asked.
"She is," Arnie said, smiling.
Dennis turned his head and called, "Sorry, Christine."
Jimmy Sykes. This is one of my favorite lines in the book. What Jimmy doesn't realize as he says this is that Arnie was in Philadelphia when he saw Christine leave. Which means, no one was behind the wheel of Christine as Jimmy saw her go out.
Rudolph Junkins. Junkins says this after Arnie correctly guesses why he has come to see him.
Leigh Cabot. She enthusiastically says this after Dennis says (jokingly) that he would use a bazooka on Christine if she came around Leigh's place.
Arnie Cunningham. Arnie says this after learning that Christine had been the name Roland LeBay had always called his car.
Taos. After Arnie and Regina died in an automobile accident, Leigh and Dennis only dated for about two years before going their separate ways. Leigh's last name became Ackerman and she moved to Taos, New Mexico. Her husband was an IBM customer service rep who drove a Honda Civic. Dennis remained single and taught at Norton Junior High.
A tanker. Dennis had called a man named Johnny Pomberton who rented Petunia to Dennis. Her job had been to pump out septic systems. Petunia was hot pink in color and had once been a GM product. Dennis' idea was to bring Petunia to Darnell's to where he hoped Christine would come. He would then use Petunia to batter Christine to death.
Jimmy Sykes. Jimmy Sykes had been another assistant of Will Darnell who had looked up to Arnie. He was a bit slow, so Darnell had preferred to use Arnie to run errands rather than Jimmy.
Kentucky Fried Chicken. After seeing the two in Dennis's Duster, Arnie ran and got into Christine. Dennis got out of his car to try to talk with Arnie, but almost got run over by Christine as Arnie tore out of the parking lot.
Colombians. Over beers, Arnie told Dennis that Will had said that the Southern Mob was bad, but that the Colombians were worse. Later, when Arnie took Dennis home in Christine after midnight, Dennis had a horrible experience, including a trip through time and conversation with Roland LeBay's corpse.
Richard McCandless. During their conversation, Richard McCandless told Dennis about an incident he and his friends had had with Christine and Roland LeBay.
A Christmas Carol. When the movie had ended, Will had decided to have a brandy before going to bed to help him sleep. He had been on his way to the kitchen when he heard Christine honking outside. (And of course, "The Santa Clause" had not even been made yet so Darnell couldn't have been watching it.)
|After Buddy's death, the detective working on the case visited Arnie. He told Arnie that he knew that a red car had been involved in both murders (the other murder being Moochie Welch's). The police had found traces of red paint on a broken barrier where Buddy and co. had died and also traces of red paint embedded in Moochie Welch. The police sent the traces to Washington to determine the shade of red. What shade of red were both traces?||SK's Ultimate Car of Evil: "Christine"
Autumn Red. When Junkins told Arnie this, Arnie said that Christine *was* Autumn Red, but she was a custom job. He then went on to say that Ford and Chevrolet offered Autumn Red cars in the early '60s and in the mid-fifties, Ramblers were also available in that shade.
Junkins. Rudolph Junkins talked to Arnie on at least two occasions in Darnell's garage. His partner was a man named Rick Mercer.
Squantic Hills State Park. Christine chased them down in Squantic Hills State Park, which was closed for the winter. Bobby Stanton was the first to die. He had not been in any way involved in the destruction of Christine. Bobby was just a freshman at the time and had just been along for the ride with Buddy and Richie on Tuesday, December 12.
Barry Gottfried . Before he saved Leigh's life while she choked, he told her that he got bad vibes from Christine. He was claustrophobic and told Leigh that he got an extreme case of claustrophobia in the Plymouth.
Choking on a McDonald's hamburger. Leigh Cabot choked on a hamburger while in Christine. This was the same way that Roland LeBay's daughter Rita died. If it hadn't been for the hitchhiker she and Arnie had picked up earlier who performed the Heimlich Maneuver on her, Leigh *would* have died. While Leigh choked, she saw that the dashboard lights had become eyes and knew that Christine was alive.
WDIL. Sometimes, no matter what station the dial was turned to, all Christine would pick up was WDIL, the oldies station.
Moochie Welch. Moochie Welch was murdered on the Thursday after Thanksgiving, the last day of November.
|There were five boys who were in on the plan to trash Christine. Buddy Repperton, Don Vandenberg, Moochie Welch, and Richie Trelawney were four of them. Who was the fifth?||SK's Ultimate Car of Evil: "Christine"
Sandy Galton. While Sandy Galton didn't actually damage Christine personally, he knew about the plan and allowed Buddy and his other friends destroy Arnie's car. After Christine was wrecked, he left the state in his Mustang.
|After LeBay's funeral, Dennis met George LeBay, the younger brother of Roland. At their meeting, George told Dennis a bit of background information on his older brother, Rollie. Dennis is surprised to discover that Roland LeBay had had a wife and child. Rita was the name of his wife- true or false?||SK's Ultimate Car of Evil: "Christine"
f. Rita was the name of Roland LeBay's daughter. She choked to death on the side of a road at the age of six. George LeBay told Dennis that he believed his brother had tried to help Rita, but later in the book, George said that he also believed that Roland had let Rita die. Veronica was the actual name of Rollie LeBay's wife. She committed suicide six months after her daughter's death in her husband's '58 Plymouth Fury, Christine.
Marcia. Marcia lived in Colorado and did not attend her brother's funeral.
Porsche. Michael Cunningham owned a Porsche while his wife, Regina, owned a Volvo.
71 years old. Dennis Guilder, Arnie's Cunningham's friend who was with Arnie when he bought the Plymouth, calculated Roland LeBay's age from dates that LeBay had told the boys to figure out why old man was selling his car. At the age of seventy in Pennsylvania, people had to take an eye exam to renew their driver's license. Dennis speculated that LeBay had either taken the test and failed or was afraid of failure. Either way, Dennis thought that was why the Plymouth was being sold.
Texas Driver. There will be another few quizzes following this one. They will be smaller quizzes rather than 25 questions each. Hope you enjoyed this quiz, let me know if you did.
sex. Christine came to her after the dream. There are several hints at it not being a dream, and then Leigh falls asleep and then wakes up. She thought it was a dream though.
Give me Libertyville or give me death. A little catchy wordplay won't hurt anyone apparently. I guess it is sorta funny.
Johnathan Richmond and the Modern Lovers. "First I walked past the Stop and Shop,
Then I drove past the Stop and Shop,
I liked that much better when I drove past the Stop and Shop,
'Cause I had the radio on." --Johnathan Richmond and the Modern Lovers
a big dollar bill flying away. Michael came out to Arnie when he couldn't take the argument anymore and told him that his mother was going through the change in her life. He told him that it really symbolized Arnie's first step away from them, which is why Regina doesn't like Christine.
3. His right was broken in one place, his left in two. He was lucky he wasn't paralyzed for life.
Yes. They got together so fast that he couldn't think of any other explanation. Everyone else didn't think that because Arnie had, until getting Christine, a horrid looking face of pimples.
