Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The Dean is delivering the grade results to House Delta, looks up and sees the inebriated Flounder and advises him "0.2... Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son" in which 1978 film?

Answer: Animal House

The Delta House is the worst on campus and Dean Wormer is looking for any opportunity to get rid of them. Their grade scores are the start of his ammunition, but his ultimate plan is "Secret Double Probation". Dean Vernon Wormer is played by the late John Vernon and his abovenamed victim, Kent "Flounder" Dorfman by the late Stephen Furst. Directed by John Landis the film also starred John Belushi and Donald Sutherland.

2. In which classic holiday movie did Aunt Bethany get a little confused about what she was being asked, and respond with: "Grace? She passed away 30 years ago!"?

Answer: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Asking Aunt Bethany to 'say grace' for the meal, the family waited patiently while what's wanted was explained to her. In the end, the family joined with Aunt Bethany in a hearty rendition of the U.S. 'Pledge of Allegiance' and the feast began!

In this 1989 movie, "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation", Clark Griswold, (played by Chevy Chase) tried to create the perfect family Christmas get-together. However, he was frustrated by his not-so-perfect family, and a sequence of mishaps mar the occasion.

The question was cooked up by Phoenix Rising member VegemiteKid.
3. "...Chief, you're about as big as a [...] mountain!" This is a famous movie quote which not only illustrates the movie but the book it came from, and yet highlights the difference between the book and movie. From which multi-award winning movie from the 70s did this defining line come?

Answer: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1975) is a movie based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Ken Kesey. Both book and movie were critically acclaimed with the movie one of only three movies in the twentieth century to have won the Academy Award Big Five (Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Movie and Best Screenplay). Whilst the themes remain similar between book and movie, there are some important differences. In the book Chief Bromden is the narrator who watches the antics of Randle McMurphey's battles against the orderliness and authority of Nurse Ratched, whereas in the movie, Chief Bromden is a secondary (but still important character), who is presumed to be mute and deaf. So when the Chief speaks two-thirds into the movie ("Hmmm, Juicy Fruit") we the audience are taken by surprise.

In 1993, the United States Library of Congress deemed the movie "culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant" and selected this important movie for preservation.

1nn1 saw this movie as a teenager in 1975. It was his favourite movie then and still is today. Hence the tribute by way of a Fun Trivia question.
4. Just beyond a midden in the Misty Mountains, a wretched creature fawns over a prized possession, "It came to me. My own. My love. My own. My precious." In which film was this line spoken?

Answer: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

"The Fellowship of the Ring" is the first installment in Peter Jackson's high fantasy film trilogy based on the novels by J.R.R. Tolkien. The story revolves around the formation of a fellowship of nine, who start out on an epic journey to return the One Ring to Mordor, where it must be destroyed.

The scene described in the question plays out in film's opening. As is only later divulged in "The Return of the King", Gollum, or Smeagol as he was then called, was at first sight enchanted by the Ring of Power. The Ring had only just been recovered from a riverbed by his relative, Deagol, after being lost for two and a half thousand years. Smeagol was so ensnared that he snuffed the life out of Deagol to claim ownership. Gollum would henceforth refer to the Ring as his Precious.

This question was conjured up by Phoenix Rising member JCSon.
5. Chief Gillespie (Rod Steiger) attempts to belittle his new partner (Sidney Poitier) by attacking his name (Virgil) and his dark skin and then asks him what they call him back in Philadelphia. "They call me MR TIBBS!" is the classic retort he receives in which 1967 film?

Answer: In the Heat of the Night

Poitier plays Detective Virgil Tibbs - a stranger in town, a black man and, worse, a man whose station is higher than the police chief's in Sparta, Mississippi. Steiger's bigoted Chief Gillespie's dislike of Tibbs is palpable and he's just been put in his place by Tibbs when he looks to take the above cheap shot at him. Tibbs seems to rise to a greater height and puffs his chest out as if to fill the room when he delivers his pointed reply.

Set in a small Mississippi town where the townsfolk seem to have a deep hatred and mistrust of anyone who is an outsider, a black detective and the white local police chief must (grudgingly) work together to solve a rather unusual murder. Directed by Norman Jewison the film would win five Oscars including the coveted Best Picture. "They call me MISTER TIBBS" was listed as number 16 on the American Film Institute's 100 Years...100 Movie Quotes. In 1970 it would also become the name of the sequel to this picture.

6. Which movie features the following quote: "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die"?

Answer: The Princess Bride

Mandy Patinkin played Inigo Montoya, a man obsessed with avenging the death of his father at the hands of a man with six fingers on one hand. The villain turns out to be Count Rugen, who Montoya fights and kills while saying the above line over and over again.

"The Princess Bride" tells the story of Buttercup and Westley, two star-crossed lovers who overcome great odds to wind up together. Although only a modest success at the time, it has grown in popularity and critical acclaim as time has passed.

7. The Quote: "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn't exist" The Character: Roger Kint The Actor: Kevin Spacey What was the movie?

Answer: The Usual Suspects

In "The Usual Suspects" (1995) a boat has been destroyed and all the criminals on board are dead... except one, Roger "Verbal" Kint. The key to solving this mystery lies with him. And so begins the interrogation of Kint who proceeds to weave a convincing though twisted and convoluted story that you, the viewer, marvel at. Well have you have been deceived? Kint uses the above line when he introduces the Keyser Soze into his story, an almost mythical underworld figure that is akin to the boogeyman, a figure that parents may invoke upon their children should they misbehave. But who is this Keyser Soze? Is it Kint? Is it Kobayashi? As the interrogator Dave Kujan says; "Convince me, and tell every last detail.

8. In which movie can the following line in a courtroom scene be heard? "Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passing."

Answer: To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)

In "To Kill A Mockingbird", Jean Louise's father Atticus Finch is a lawyer who defends a black man wrongly accused of rape. As Mr Finch leaves the courtroom after losing the case, Reverend Sykes in the audience prompts Jean Louise (Scout) to stand up as a mark of respect for her father who did his best to see that justice prevailed.

9. In which movie did an apparently somewhat less youthful protagonist rejoin, "It's not the years, honey. It's the mileage."?

Answer: Raiders of the Lost Ark

"Raiders of the Lost Ark", released in 1981, was the first film in the "Indiana Jones" franchise. Set in 1936, Harrison Ford played Dr. Jones, an archeologist hired to find the Ark of the Covenant before it ended up in the hands of the Nazis. When his love interest Marion Ravenwood says, "You're not the man I knew ten years ago", Indiana Jones responds as only Indiana Jones can. "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was a huge commercial and critical success. It was the highest grossing film of 1981, and went on to win 5 Academy Awards.

10. "Open the pod bay doors, HAL." "I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that." And there is the essence of a 1968 science fiction movie. What was the title of this movie?

Answer: 2001: A Space Odyssey

"2001 A Space Odyssey" (1968) was one of the world's most visually spectacular movies when it was released. The screenplay was written by Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, based on Clarke's short story "The Sentinel" (1948). Clarke released a novel of the same name after the movie was released. The story is minimal: A monolith is discovered in pre-historic times and another on the moon in contemporary time. The monolith has a role in the evolutionary practices on Earth. A race is on to find the third monolith near Jupiter. However, only the anthropomorphic computer HAL knows the real mission with the five astronauts mere pawns in the process. The crux comes when the computer will not let the last astronaut back into the spacecraft as the computer fears he (it) will be shut down by Bowman.
This was a visually spectacular movie (remember this was the sixties) known for its minimalist dialogue, its lack of stars and a classical music score. In 2010, it was named the greatest film of all time by one leading video movie journal.

1nn1 saw this movie for the first time as a teenager in 1978. It was his second favourite movie then and still is today.
