Frankly, my dear…it’s a new episode!
Shared surnames and classic movie quotes take center stage on this week’s competition, where competitors Kate, Lauren, and Molly are ready for their close-ups. In round one, they’ll call me Mister Tibbs as they identify the common surnames between notable characters and actors.
Then, I’ll be back to test their knowledge of quotes from the AFI’s “100 Years…100 Movie Quotes” list, one word at a time. And while only one winner can be declared, this whole episode looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

In season 4, episode 7 of Seinfeld, Jerry meets a Yoo-Hoo driver (Brian Doyle Murray) and agrees to meet his sterile-environment-requiring son Donald in upstate New York on his way to Susan's family cabin. Jerry gets separated from George and doesn't make it to Donald's house, so George and Susan play trivial pursuit with him to pass the time. After an altercation involving a mispring of the word "moors" as "moops," George breaks Donald's plastc divider, or "bubble."
