Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In which 1942 movie did Rick Blaine utter the immortal words "of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine" while listening to Sam play the piano?

Answer: Casablanca

"Casablanca" (1942) starred Humphrey Bogart as Rick Blaine, a nightclub and gambling den owner in Morocco. In one of cinema's most famous scenes, Rick's former lover, Ilsa (played by Ingrid Bergman) enters his club one night with her husband, just as house pianist Sam is playing the piano and Rick is sipping on his gin.

Six different lines from the movie were included in the American Film Institute's 2011 "100 years... 100 Movie Quotes" list. The line, "of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine" was included at number 67.
2. The first time British secret agent James Bond drank a martini on screen in "Dr No" (1962), he didn't ask for it himself. What did the waiter say when he first presented him with the drink?

Answer: "One medium dry vodka martini mixed like you said, sir, but not stirred."

Although Ian Fleming's fictional spy James Bond is well known for his love of martinis (a cocktail made with gin or vodka and vermouth), his first vocalised order for one was not until "Goldfinger" in 1962, when he requested a "Martini. Shaken not stirred". in "Dr No (1962), it was in fact a waiter who told us Bond's most famous drinks order.

In almost every "Bond" film, James Bond has drunk at least one martini. Famously, in "Spectre" (2015), he attempted to order the drink but was informed that he was at a health club which did not serve alcohol.
3. In the 1992 classic movie "Silence of the Lambs", Hannibal Lecter reminisces abut eating the liver of a census taker with some fava beans and what Italian wine?

Answer: Chianti

The line "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti." is one of the most famous movie quotes of all time. Hannibal Lecter makes the revelation to FBI trainee Clarice Starling when he first meets her - presumably in the hope of spooking her.

In a somewhat ironic twist, since the movie (and the book on which it was based) were released, it has been discovered by scientists that red wine contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors, which have been shown to be effective in treating people with personality disorders - just like Hannibal Lecter.
4. In which 2004 movie starring Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church did a main protagonist, Miles, state categorically that "if anyone orders Merlot I'm leaving"?

Answer: Sideways

"Sideways" (2004) follows two unsuccessful men in their mid-forties who take a week-long wine tasting tour before one of them gets married. It is based on a 2004 novel of the same name by Rex Pickett.

The film has been controversial in wine-lover circles as it frequently praises Pinot Noir and denigrates Merlot. Miles' refusal to drink Merlot in this famous quote comes as Jack tries to tempt his depressed, wine-snob friend to be more sociable and join him for a glass of wine. Unfortunately, Miles' condition is that no Merlot be served.
5. In the 1980 movie "The Shining", what did the main character, Jack Torrance, say he would give his soul for a glass of?

Answer: Beer

Based on Stephen King's 1977 novel of the same name, horror-movie "The Shining" (1980) is a story of an aspiring writer, who accepts a position as caretaker of a hotel during the off-season and takes his wife and psychically gifted son with him.

As main protagonist Jack Torrance starts to go slowly mad throughout his time in the hotel, he is pictured stating "God, I'd give anything for a drink. I'd give my goddamned soul for just a glass of beer", before opening his eyes and seeing a ghostly bartender appear right before him.
6. In which 1964 movie musical did Colonel Pickering inform Professor Higgins that "at a time like this, it's positively indecent that you don't need a glass of port" just before their protégé is presented at the embassy ball?

Answer: My Fair Lady

Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1913 stage play "Pygmalion", "My Fair Lady" is the story of a cockney flower girl who is educated in etiquette and speech by a linguistics professor for a challenge.

Although the musical was first performed on the stage in 1956 and starred Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison in its opening cast, Audrey Hepburn was cast as Eliza Dolittle in the movie version, alongside Rex Harrison who reprised his role as Professor Higgins. Wilfred Hyde-White played Colonel Pickering, an acquaintance staying with Professor Higgins and watching his attempts with interest.

Just before the embassy ball, where Eliza is to be presented for the first time with her new manners and accent, Colonel Pickering is noticeably nervous and berates Professor Higgins for not also needing a glass of port to steady his nerves.
7. In which 1988 movie with a drink-themed name did barman Brian recite a poem called the "Last Barman" in which he referred to several drinks, including a "a sex on the beach", "the schnapps made from peach", "the velvet hammer", "the Alabama slammer", "the pink squirrel" and "the three-toed sloth"?

Answer: Cocktail

"Cocktail" (1988) is a romantic comedy starring Tom Cruise as Brian Flanagan, a business student who works in a bar to make ends meet and eventually ends up buying his own bar.

The full poem recited by Flanagan whilst he's working at the bar is as follows:
"I am the last barman poet
I see America drinking the fabulous cocktails I make
Americans getting stinky on something I stir or shake
The sex on the beach, the schnapps made from peach
The velvet hammer, The Alabama slammer.
I make things with juice and froth
The pink squirrel, the three-toed sloth.
I make drinks so sweet and snazzy
The iced tea, the kamakazi
The orgasm, The death spasm
The Singapore sling, the dingaling.
America you've just been devoted to every flavor I got
But if you want to got loaded
Why don't you just order a shot?
Bar is open. "
8. Back to British secret agent James Bond... in "Goldfinger" (1964), he declared that "some things just aren't done, such as drinking Dom Perignon '53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit". What does Bond go on to liken this travesty to?

Answer: "Listening to the Beatles without earmuffs"

At the time of "Goldfinger's" release in 1964, the Beatles were at the height of their fame. However, they represented a youth culture at that time which would not have been consistent with James Bond and his suave, adult appeal.

Bond makes his declaration as to the required temperature of Dom Perignon to Jill Masterson, right before being knocked out by Goldfinger's Korean manservant Oddjob. He later awakens to find that Jill has been covered in gold and "skin suffocated".

Dom Perignon is one of the world's best loved luxury champagne brands. The 1953 vintage comes from a particularly healthy harvest and, according to the Dom Perignon company, is best served at a lower temperature than other champagnes which are usually recommended to be served at between 47 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit in order to preserve the integrity of the taste buds.
9. In Quentin Tarantino's 2009 war movie, "Inglorious Basterds", Lt Archie Hicox declared that "there's a special rung in hell reserved for people who waste good...". What drink?

Answer: Scotch

Michael Fassbender, playing Lt Archie Hicox, said the line "there's a special rung in hell reserved for people who waste good scotch" whilst drinking 33 year old Highland Scottish whiskey in the 2009 film "Inglorious Basterds". The storyline focuses on two plots to assassinate the leaders of Nazi Germany during World War II, and its title is based on a 1978 'spaghetti war' film of the same name.

After being caught out in his German disguise, Hicox refuses to waste his scotch and says his famous line right before entering a shootout in which he is one of the last survivors.
10. In which 1961 movie did George Peppard's character inform Audrey Hepburn's character that "I don't think I've ever drunk champagne before breakfast before. With breakfast on several occasions, but never before, before"?

Answer: Breakfast at Tiffany's

"Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) is the story of a New York socialite named Holly Golightly (played by Audrey Hepburn) and the romance she finds with a man named Paul Varjack (played by George Peppard) when he moves into her apartment building. The movie is based on Truman Capote's 1958 novella of the same name.

Drinking champagne before breakfast is just the first of many things that the pair do when they later agree to spend the day doing things they've never done before.
