    Name that character 2/6/13 edition



    No clues. And no fair cheating. Winner gets a whirlwind 10 day all expenses paid trip to Terre Haute, IN (with accomodations provided by Super 8!) and a one year supply of Rice-a-Roni (the San Francisco treat)
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Wow, that was amazing. Your tickets to Terre Haute and Rice-a-Roni are both in the mail. Thanks for playing.


    Round 2. That was too easy. This is a super hard one!

    Not really -

    Actor, Character, Movie Title, Year
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Astounding!
    Round 3:
    Okay this one is much much harder and because of that the prize will be much greater - a week in Schenectady at the Motel 6 and a lifetime supply of pork rinds!

    I don't know where you are going to find the time to vacation at both Terre Haute and Schenectady (with your pork rinds and Rice-a-Roni in hand), but you are correct once again!

    You are amazing! Stupendous! A savant! Sadly, we're running a little low on prizes at the moment. I'm sure you won't mind sharing a room with otterpop in Terre Haute. I bet he'd be willing to share some of his pork rinds too.

    My inner Star Wars geek coming out, but you're are partially wrong! Yes the character is right, but Akbar is a Mon Calamari (yes squid), Bothans are some furry troll looking creature.

    It's been a while since I saw the flick, but he was either a Brigadier or Major General.

    I'll leave the greatness of round 7 to somebody else.
