After performing a series of very expensive tests on his patient, a doctor went into the exam room to report the results. “I’m sorry, Mr. Johnson,” he said. “It looks like you have only six months to live.”
“But, Doctor, I don’t have insurance!” gasped Mr. Johnson. “I can’t work enough hours to earn enough to pay you in only six months!”
“Okay, okay, don’t panic,” the doctor replied. “Let’s say nine months, then.”

What was the original title of the 1961 Academy Award–winning song “Moon River”?

“Blue River.” The name was changed when lyricist Johnny Mercer realized another songwriter had already used the title. Written by Mercer with composer Henry Mancini for the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, “Moon River” won the Oscar for Best Original Song.

What the heck happened to Felicity (1998–2002)?

For its first three seasons, Felicity was a light drama about a college student caught in a love triangle. Then, at the end of season four, Felicity convinces a Wiccan friend to cast a spell on her to send her back in time to right a romantic wrong. (Really.) Felicity’s scenes took place in the past, while the rest of the characters continued on in the present. Viewers were perplexed by the tangled mess of conflicting parallel timelines and their central character’s already-complicated love life. How was the mess resolved? In the final episode, Felicity wakes up in a bed surrounded by her concerned friends—the writers had resorted to the old “it was all just a dream” ploy.
