Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In which 1990 film did gangster Brian Hope respond "You call THIS going straight?" after his partner suggested they disguise themselves as women while trying to give up their life of crime?

Answer: Nuns on the Run

And what better disguise than hiding out in a convent, dressed as Sister Inviolata of the Immaculate Conception and Sister Euphemia of the Five Wounds? Robbie Coltrane and Eric Idle played the bank robbers who decided to steal money from the gang to start life anew but accidentally ended up in a convent while trying to make their escape.

It turned out to be a teacher training college for young women; when asked if they had experience, Coltrane responded "Of 18 year old girls? Yes, plenty".
2. In which film does the character Chi-Chi describe herself thus: "I'm the Latina Marilyn Monroe. I've got more legs than a bucket of chicken"?

Answer: To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar

"To Wong Foo" was first released in 1995, and was nominated for two Golden Globe Awards. Chi-Chi was played by John Leguizamo, and it also starred Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes as fellow Drag Queens Vida and Noxeema. The three are entered in a drag queen pageant in Hollywood, and the film tells the story of their road trip across the United States on their way to compete.
3. Senator Kevin Keeley had the line "No one will dance with me. I think it's this dress. I told them white would make me look fat" in which 1996 comedy remake?

Answer: The Birdcage

A remake of the classic 1978 film "La Cage aux Folles", "The Birdcage" featured Robin Williams and Nathan Lane as the parents of a young man engaged to the daughter of a conservative senator played by Gene Hackman. After their comic attempt at trying to portray themselves as a straight couple fell apart, Armand (Williams) and Albert (Lane) had to sneak Senator Keeley (Hackman) through their drag club, and they did so by dressing Keeley up as a drag queen.

When Keeley spotted his chauffeur and told the man to meet him in twenty minutes at a street corner, the chauffeur responded "Lady, not for a million dollars".
4. In which 1959 farce did Jerry gush to his friend Joe that he's engaged, and when Joe asked who the lucky girl was, Jerry responded "I am"?

Answer: Some Like it Hot

After musicians Jack Lemmon (Jerry) and Tony Curtis (Joe) witness a gangland killing, they hide out as Daphne and Josephine (respectively), musicians in an all-female orchestra. Daphne becomes the object of affection of millionaire Osgood, who asks Daphne to marry him. Daphne accepts, planning to get a settlement from Osgood once he realizes that Daphne is actually Jerry. Joe tries to convince Jerry to call the whole thing off, leaving Jerry to ask what he was supposed to do with Osgood's engagement present, a diamond bracelet.

After Joe realizes they are real diamonds, Jerry responds, "Of course they're real. What do you think? My fiancÚ is a bum?"
5. Which thriller had the lead character dispensing "homespun wisdom" such as "A hobby should pass the time, not fill it", "A boy's best friend is his mother" and "I don't set a fancy table, but the kitchen's awful homey"?

Answer: Psycho

The novel "Psycho" (1959) was written by Robert Bloch, and has been made into several film versions over the years. The quotes in question are from the iconic 1960 film, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates. Janet Leigh played a young woman who, having stolen a large sum of money from her employer, tried to hide out at the Bates Motel run by the schizophrenic Bates and his (deceased) mother.
6. After viewing himself as a woman in a mirror, Captain Henri Rochard said "I don't think I'll be called upon to defend my honor" in which 1949 WWII comedy?

Answer: I Was a Male War Bride

French Army officer Henri Rochard (Cary Grant) married American lieutenant Catherine Gates (Ann Sheridan) after a madcap romance in Germany, but the only way he could return with her to the United States was under the War Bride Act. Naval personnel refused to allow him onboard ship, claiming he wasn't a war bride.

After Rochard stormed off, claiming that he was "going someplace to change back into a man... [he was] tired of being [his] own wife", Gates convinced him to dress as an army nurse to get onboard the ship, and the disguise worked.
7. In which 1982 comedy does Michael explain his shopping excursion to his roommate Jeff: "Those women were like animals. I saw this beautiful handbag. I was afraid to fight for it... The woman that finally bought the handbag I know did time. Now I don't have a decent handbag"?

Answer: Tootsie

Actor Michael Dorsey (Dustin Hoffman) wasn't able to get a job as a man, so he tried being a woman and became an overnight success as Dorothy Michaels. He lamented to his roommate Jeff (Bill Murray) about the high cost of being a woman: "How does a woman keep herself attractive and not starve?" as he asked Jeff to pass him the cottage cheese. Being a woman did cause problems for Michael though; the actress he was interested in thought he was gay, and her father proposed to him.
8. "Women are insane! Who would do that more than once?" was Nick's exclamation after testing a wax strip on his leg in which 2000 comedy?

Answer: What Women Want

Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson) was a chauvinistic advertising executive who was bitter about losing a promotion to a woman. Needing to come up with advertising slogans for female products, Nick decided to try them out: waxing, putting on make-up and pantyhose.

He slipped while holding a hairdryer and fell into the bathtub, and the electric shock he received didn't kill him, but gave him the ability to hear what women were thinking. He used his new-found ability to his advantage at first, but ultimately, he used it to improve the relationships in his life.
9. In which 1993 film does the title character lose her mask of disguise and, after being offered a hand, reply "no dear, I don't need a hand...I need a face"?

Answer: Mrs Doubtfire

After an emotional divorce from his wife, Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams) is granted only limited visiting rights to his children. With the help of 'Uncle Frank and Aunt Jack', Daniel transforms into Mrs Doubtfire - a feisty Englishwoman with a 'muddled' accent - with the intention of filling the post of nanny for his children.

The charming Mrs Doubtfire creates an entire back-story of her life, including details about her late husband Winston. "He was fond of the drink", Mrs Doubtfire tells us. "It was the drink that killed him".

When asked if he was an alcoholic, Mrs Doubtfire corrects Miranda, saying "no, he was hit by a Guinness truck."
10. Which title character explained his fetish for cross-dressing with "I'm all man. I even fought in WWII. Of course, I was wearing women's undergarments under my uniform."?

Answer: Ed Wood

The 1994 biographical Tim Burton film about 1950s cross-dressing director Ed Wood (played by Johnny Depp) followed Wood's life from his beginning efforts in the film industry to the premiere of his film "Plan 9 from Outer Space", a film which regularly shows up on lists of the worst film ever made. Wood gained a cult following for his odd films, including "Glen or Glenda", a film in which Wood appeared in as a woman.

While Depp earned kudos for his campy performance as Wood, co-star Martin Landau won an Oscar for his role as Bela Lugosi.
