Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. If all three sets of these numbers are not equal, which is the greatest? Is it the number of times "Goodfellas" character Jimmy Conway shoots Billy Batts in the movie's opening scene, the number of bullets "Pulp Fiction" informant Marvin takes in the face compliments of killer Vincent Vega or the number of shots Michael Corleone uses in "The Godfather" to dispose of Virgil Sollozzo and Capt. Mark McCluskey in the famous restaurant scene?

Answer: "Goodfellas"' Jimmy Conway shoots the most.

Yes. It's true. Jimmy Conway (played by Robert DeNiro) popped his victim four times in that classic opening scene. Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) was more efficient. He needed only three shots to take care of his two rivals while poor Marvin (Phil LaMarr) was the unlucky recipient of one accidental (but very direct) shot from Vincent Vega. (John Travolta)
2. These three sets of numbers are either all equal or only two of the three match each other. What do you know about character Joe Friday's badge number on "Dragnet", sitcom character Roseanne Connor's Delaware Street address on "Roseanne" and baseball great Babe Ruth's career homerun total?

Actor Jack Webb portrayed Sgt. Joe Friday for over 30 years. "Dragnet" began its run on radio and transitioned to the tube in 1952. The Babe began his career as a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox before being traded to the New York Yankees in 1919 where he blossomed into one of the greatest sluggers in history. Actress Roseanne Barr created the character of Roseanne Conner and starred with the rest of her dysfunctional sitcom family on ABC from 1988 through 1997. All three shared the number 714. The Connors resided at 714 Delaware Street.

The Babe belted 714 career homers and Sgt. Friday was issued badge 714 by the Los Angeles Police Department. "This is the city..."
3. If these three sets of numbers are not all equal, which is the greatest? Is it the number of bean-eating cowboys doing their 'business' around the campfire in the famous scene from "Blazing Saddles", the number of states in the U.S. in 1874 (the year in which the comedy movie is set), or the number of Academy Award© nominations the movie received?

Answer: The number of states in 1874 is greatest.

This should have been an easy one. The union consisted of 37 states in 1874 when Harvey Korman's character Hedley Lamarr and his henchmen terrorized the lovely town of Rock Ridge in Blazing Saddles. Fortunately, when it comes to air-quality concerns, the number of cowboys sitting around the campfire totaled "only" 11. For her portrayal of temptress Lily Von Shtupp, actress Madeline Kahn earned an Academy Award© nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category.

Her nomination was one of only three bestowed to the movie.
4. If these three sets of numbers are not equal, which is the greatest? Is it Doc Brown's Riverside Drive address in "Back to the Future", the address of the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. or the year the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock?

When Marty McFly goes back to November 5, 1955, he seeks out and finds the Doc living at 1640 Riverside Drive. Although there is some dispute to the exact date and time, the standard version of Pilgrim history has them arriving at Plymouth Rock in 1620. The President of the United States resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
5. Here's a TV address comparison: If these three sets of numbers are not equal, which is the greatest? Is it Archie Bunker's address on "All in the Family", Howard Cunningham's address on "Happy Days" or Drew Carey's address on his "Drew Carey" show?

"All in the Family" and "Happy Days" had longer runs and arguably are more highly regarded in television lore than the "Drew Carey Show" but this time, Drew is the winner. Drew's street address is 720 Sedgewick. Archie comes in second place. He ruled his world from 704 Hauser Street. Howard, Marion, Richie, Joanie and don't forget the Fonz in the garage apartment lived at 565 N. Clinton Drive in Milwaukee, WI.
6. If these three sets of numbers are not equal, which is the greatest? Is it the number of watts per day Jack Nicholson's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" character Randle McMurphy boasted he had been receiving in daily electric shock treatments, the model number of HAL, the antagonistic computer in Arthur C. Clarke's "2001: A Space Odyssey" or the age of the 'Old Man' in the comedy bit created by Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner?

Answer: Randle McMurphy's wattage is greatest.

Jack wins this one. As McMurphy, he joked that because he had been receiving 10,000 watts per day that his next girlfriend was "...gonna light up like a pinball machine and pay off in silver dollars!" In second place, the model number of troublesome computer, voiced by Canadian actor Douglas Rain, was the HAL 9000.

The third place number in this group is the 'Old Man', who was 2000 years of age back in the '60s, which I guess puts him around 2050 now.
7. If these three sets of numbers are not equal, which is the greatest? Is it the number of sentences in President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, the height of the rim (in feet) in the National Basketball Association or the number that rates Bo Derek's character Jenny Hanley in the 1979 movie of the same name?

Yes. They're all equal. Honest Abe used only ten sentences in his great speech. In the movie "10", character George Webber (Dudley Moore) gave his top rating to the "most beautiful girl I've ever seen" and the regulation height of the rim is ten feet.
8. If these three sets of numbers are not equal, which is the greatest? Is the greatest number the death benefit value of George Bailey's (Jimmy Stewart) life insurance policy in the movie "It's a Wonderful Life", the number of leagues author Jules Verne sends character Captain Nemo under the sea in his famous 1870 novel or the number of career rushing yards gained by the Detroit Lion's all-time great running back Barry Sanders?

Answer: Captain Nemo's number is greatest.

We figured you to know that Captain Nemo's submarine, the Nautilus, was 20,000 leagues under the sea but did you know that George's policy was for \$15,000.00 or that Sanders rushed for 15,269 yards? Didn't think so. For what it's worth, pun intended, if we adjust the buying power of \$15k in 1946 to current times, George's policy would be worth approximately \$175,000.00.

But too bad if you did believe that George's number was greatest because there is no adjusting for inflation here. Sorry! The official greatest number belongs to Captain Nemo. :)
9. Here's Johnny! Actually, just a question about TV's late night king, Johnny Carson. If these three sets of numbers are not equal, which is the greatest? Is it the number of times Johnny hosted the Academy Awards©, the number times he was married or the number of Emmy Awards© his show won in the 'Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Program' category?

It's a close battle for the top spot with Johnny's Academy Award© hosting gigs edging out the number of times he said, "I do", five to four. He hosted the ceremony from 1979-1982 and then again in 1984. Thankfully, he was compensated handsomely for his work as it allowed him to afford his alimony payments. Published reports state that the settlement in the divorce from his third wife, Joanna Holland, alone cost him over \$20 million dollars! Even though Johnny was the King of Late Night, his "Tonight Show" won the Emmy© for 'Outstanding Show' only once. (1992)
10. If these three sets of numbers are not equal, which is the greatest? The Boston Red Sox jersey number of fictitious "Cheers" character Sam Malone (Ted Danson), the Boston Red Sox jersey number of actual Major Leaguer Jim Lonborg or the number of candles on the cake in the 1959 pop hit song by the Crests?

Yes, they're all the same. The Crests sold over one-million copies and earned a Gold Record for their 1959 hit, "16 Candles". The number 16 was also the jersey number on the backs of both ballplayers. On the "Cheers" set, the photo of Sam on display in the bar is an actual photo of Lonborg in action. Lonborg, who played with Boston between 1965-1971, also pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers and the Philadelphia Phillies.

He finished his 15-year career with a win-loss record of 157-137.
