Micah: Why is your face covered with food?
Mickey: Because I was doing what my mother told me to do.
Micah: What did she tell you to do?
Mickey: To shut my mouth and eat my dinner. emoticon

What wood was used to make Harry Potter’s magic wand? How about Voldemort’s wand?

Harry’s wand was made of holly; Voldemort’s was made of yew. Both had a phoenix-feather core—from the same phoenix.

Mork from Ork

In 1978, Happy Days creator Garry Marshall asked his young son Scott, who didn’t watched his dad’s show, what would make him tune in. Scott didn’t like sitcoms, but he loved Star Wars. So he answered, “If it had a space alien in it.” Marshall ordered his staff to write an episode about an alien. After auditioning more than 20 people, he gave Robin Williams the part when he sat on a chair upside down. Mork, and Williams, then got their own show, Mork & Mindy, which ran for four seasons. (Nanu, nanu!)


British actor with most hours logged on American TV: Angela Lansbury.

“I am satisfied there is nothing to be done but to make the best of what cannot be helped, to act with reason oneself and with a good conscience. And though that will not give all the joys some people wish for, yet it will make one very quiet.”

—SARAH CHURCHILL, Duchess of Marlborough, 17th-century British aristocrat

A volunteer from the Red Cross knocked on the door of the richest lawyer in town. She said to him, “Our research shows that you make seven million dollars a year but don’t give a penny to charity. Wouldn’t you like to make a generous donation?”
The wealthy lawyer replied, “Did you know that my mother is dying after a long illness and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?”
Embarrassed, the Red Cross worker mumbled, “Um, no …”
But the lawyer kept going: “Or that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?”
The Red Cross worker tearfully tried to apologize, but the man interrupted her again: “Or that my sister’s husband died suddenly, leaving her penniless with three children?”
The humiliated Red Cross worker cried, “I had no idea!”
The rich lawyer continued, “So if I don’t give any money to them, why should I give any to you?”

How many amendments to the U.S. Constitution were proposed in the Bill of Rights passed by Congress in 1789?

12. The first two proposed—dealing with the number and apportionment of the House of Representatives, and Congressional pay raises—failed to be ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures. The remaining 10 were ratified and became the Bill of Rights.

TUBE QUIZ

We’ve mashed together the scenarios of two shows. Can you guess their blended titles?

1. California teenagers (Ben McKenzie, Adam Brody, Rachel Bilson) fall in and out of love with one another as they attend concerts by indie rock bands … and use advanced forensics equipment to solve heinous crimes in Miami.

2. Groucho Marx tells jokes, improvises, and quizzes two contestants for cash prizes … which they need to raise their two teenagers, Becca (Kellie Martin), a sensitive nerd, and Corky (Chris Burke), a boy with Down syndrome.

3. A tame, 600-pound black bear is brought in from the wild to live among humans, where he befriends a little boy (Clint Howard) and…an idealistic, handsome young surgeon (Vince Edwards) at County General Hospital.


ANSWERS:
1. The O.C. + CSI Miami = The OCSI Miami
2. You Bet Your Life + Life Goes On = You Bet Your Life Goes On
3. Gentle Ben + Ben Casey = Gentle Ben Casey



First drama canceled by a network and revived on cable: The Paper Chase (CBS to Showtime, 1983).

(I loved The Paper Chase while it was on the network. Didn't have cable, so I couldn't watch it after it was canceled)

Michelle came home from an afternoon with her boyfriend looking very unhappy. Her mother asked her what was wrong. “Arnold asked me to marry him,” Michelle replied.
“Congratulations! But why do you look so upset?” her mother asked.
“Because he also told me that he’s an atheist. He doesn’t even believe in Hell!” said Michelle.
Her mother hugged her and said, “That’s all right, honey. I think you should marry him, and between the two of us, we’ll show him how wrong he is.”

"We have more people employed in this country than ever before. Sure, unemployment is up but more people are looking for work than ever before."

To focus world attention on the threat of global warming, in what unusual setting did the president of the Republic of Maldives hold a cabinet meeting?

Underwater in a lagoon, with everyone attending the 2009 meeting wearing frogman suits. Some environmentalists believe rising seas caused by climate change could put the 1,192-island Indian Ocean archipelago—the lowest-lying nation in the world —underwater by the end of this century.

A SHOW IS BORN

Leave It to Beaver (1957–63)

In 1956, the prolific radio and TV writing team of Joe Connelly and Bob Mosher (with 1,200 episode credits to their names) set out to create a family sitcom that looked at life from the point of view of the kids, unlike the parent-based Father Knows Best or Ozzie and Harriet. They drew from stories of Connelly’s sons and wrote a pilot called “It’s a Small World.” It aired in April 1957 on CBS’s anthology show, Heinz Studio ’57. Series regulars Jerry Mathers (Theodore “Beaver” Cleaver) and Barbara Billingsley (June Cleaver) starred, but different actors played brother Wally and father Ward. (Wise-guy neighbor Eddie Haskell was played by future Spinal Tap member and Simpsons voice actor Harry Shearer.) When CBS picked up the show, they named it Wally and the Beaver, until sponsors required a change to Leave It to Beaver because they feared viewers might think it was a nature program.

Smallville was originally conceived as a Batman series, Gotham, about young Bruce Wayne.
