Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. As the movie starts, what time and day does the radio DJ announce that it is in Chicago, Illinois, home to the Griswolds?

Answer: 4:22, Thursday

We hear these elements while Chevy Chase is driving his SUV coming home from work.
2. Which actor or actress receives 3rd billing in the opening credits?

Answer: Randy Quaid

Randy Quaid recreates his Cousin Eddie role for the third time in the series, and he arguably steals the spotlight from all of the other players in this movie. Probably because Cousin Eddie has a plate in his head.
3. As Clark Griswold is absent-mindedly driving through his neighborhood, leafing through his Vegas brochure, what hotel is featured on the front cover of the brochure?

Answer: The Mirage

This is appropriate as The Mirage is the hotel/casino where the Griswolds begin their stay in Las Vegas.
4. What is the opening music for "Vegas Vacation"---it is the song that Clark excitedly, if not poorly, sings while swerving around in his SUV?

Answer: "Good Vibrations" by The Beach Boys

Chevy Chase's quick version of this feel-good 60s song is hardly classic, but it is funny.
5. Clark's job revolves around food preservatives. How old then are the cookies that Clark gleefully distributes to his family?

Answer: 4 years old

They are not only 4 years old, they are chocolate chip, as Clark's son exclaims.
6. What is the number on Clark's daughter's grey jersey as she eats, and then subsequently spits out her old cookie?

Answer: 66

The daughter, Audrey, is played by newcomer Marisol Nichols.
7. At the kitchen table where Clark works to convince his family that Las Vegas is a place to take the family vacation, what fruit is NOT seen in the centerpiece basket?

Answer: Lemons

You also see white grapes and peaches in the wicker basket in front of Russ and Audrey.
8. When Russ rhetorically and cheerfully asks if there is "legalized prostitution" in Las Vegas, what is his father's response?

Answer: "Not within the city limits, Russ."

While Clark correctly informs him that prostitution is illegal within the city limits, the broader legal truth is that prostitution is illegal within the whole county (Clark) where Las Vegas is the seat.
9. As Clark persuades his family to visit Las Vegas which reason does he NOT give his family to join him in Vegas?

Answer: "There's all-you-can-eat buffets."

While it is true that there are dozens of all-you-can-eat buffets, this not one of the highlights that Clark uses here.
10. In this 'Vacation' movie it is seldom used, but what is the affectionate nickname that Ellen has for her husband, Clark?

Answer: Sparky

She says this just after Clark announces he would like to re-marry Ellen in Las Vegas..."if she'll have me".
11. For which wedding anniversary does Clark say he could use Russ as his best man?

Answer: 20th

Ellen suggests using Audrey, their daughter, for a bridesmaid. To which Clark asks, "Audrey who?"
12. As Ellen is reading from her in-flight magazine in the airplane to Las Vegas, what product advertisement is clearly seen on the back cover of her magazine?

Answer: Marlboro Lights

She is busy reading this Esquire magazine until Clark brings up the subject of joining the "Mile-High" club with her.
13. What romantic song plays in the background as Ellen and Clark start to become amorous in the airplane's small (too-small) latrine?

Answer: The Girl from Ipanema

The song was arranged by Stan Getz and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
14. What color dye is seen on Clark's right hand and Ellen's left foot as a result of her foot getting stuck in an airplane toilet while turbulence interrupted their amorous activities?

Answer: Blue

The blue dye is seen clearly on their light-colored clothes while they are walking through McCarran Airport after their landing, and again as they check into their hotel, The Mirage.
15. As the children rib their parents about the failed mile-high-sex attempt, what book shop is seen in the background of the airport?

Answer: Waterstone's Booksellers

If you pay close attention, as the Griswolds exit Gate 6 at McCarran Airport, you can see the Waterstone retail store in the backdrop. While this is happening, Audrey suggests that they (her parents) visit a bathroom inside the airport.
16. As the Griswold limo enters the Las Vegas Strip, what are the names of the first four casino hotel marquees that are shown in all their neon glitter?

Answer: Caesars Palace, Stratosphere, Treasure Island, and Tropicana

Old disco music from the 70s plays in the background as Clark drops down his limo window and gazes for the first time on the Las Vegas strip.
17. As Ellen opens her jaws longingly at the sight of seeing her icon Wayne Newton in lights, what are the dates that he is appearing at the MGM Grand?

Answer: June 27-July 3

This was filmed while Wayne Newton was still working for the MGM Grand. Mr. Las Vegas now has his own multi-million dollar theatre and works nearly 8 shows per week at the Stardust Hotel Casino. What would be cool to know---if there is a diehard Newton fan that could somehow find out---is whether those were the actual dates that he played in the year the film was shot, 1996.
18. How much is the dinner buffet at the Round Table Buffet at the Excalibur Hotel as is advertised on the giant marquee?

Answer: $5.99

The breakfast is $3.99, the lunch is $4.99, and the dinner is $5.99. Those were the rates back in 1996---they are of course higher now, although for an all-you-can-eat buffet, the prices are still reasonable.
19. What color are the marquee letters that boldly tell Ellen that Wayne Newton is appearing at the MGM Grand?

Answer: Green

Green to match the rather luminous green of one of the world's largest hotels. MGM must have gotten a special deal on all that neon green glass.
20. Which of the Griswolds accidentally shuts the limo sunroof while Audrey is standing up through it?

Answer: Clark

As you might predict, the clumsy Clark is responsible for closing the roof in on her stomach. Ellen looks at the long red mark and says "don't worry, it won't leave a permanent line."
21. As the limo makes its way up and down the Las Vegas Strip, which Hotel does NOT flash by in the lengthy Strip montage?

Answer: Mandalay Bay

The easy answer is here for two reasons. First, because no image of Mandalay Bay is ever shown in the movie, and second, because construction on that hotel didn't even begin until 2 years after the film was shot.
22. What is the name of the actress, and former cast member of television's "Saturday Night Live", who plays the Front Desk receptionist that checks the Griswolds into the Mirage Hotel?

Answer: Julia Sweeney

Sweeney was on "SNL" for years, making famous, or infamous, her portrayal of the gender-ambiguous Pat.
23. How much money does Clark put into the first slot machine he plays?

Answer: $5

He believes that they always put the machines "that pay off the most right in the front." Well, this time he was right---he doubled his money.
24. When Wayne Newton first spots Ellen Griswold across a crowded casino floor, he can't help but stare. As he gawks and smirks at Mrs. Griswold, what color suit is Mr. Las Vegas wearing?

Answer: Black

Black, all black, except for a hint of grey around his cuffs and on his handkerchief.
25. When Clark sits down to his first table game, he buys into it by asking for how much in chips?

Answer: $200

And the dealer, played by Wallace Shawn, reemphasizes, "Changing two-hundred!"
