Dan, Taylor, and Dave dance around to a jaunty acoustic guitar, percussion, and melodica tune. The music stops, and so do they. They all shout “DAN!” They dance again before pausing to shout “DAVE!” Once more before shouting “TAYLOR!” If that gets you in the mood for Bluey-inspired pop culture trivia, you’re in luck! Monty, Levi, and Diedra find some very cute Bluey mash-ups in round one, but also some kind of weird ones let’s not talk about it. Instead, we’ll get very meta in round two when we see if our players can identify times on TV where an actor slyly referenced their previous onscreen work. Honestly, we wish Dan would do this more on our show by coyly dropping in direct quotes from his political TV appearances into the score updates. Will he do it? Obviously no. Taylor tried to have round three this week be a game of keepy-uppy, but his request was denied in lieu of a regular old lightning round. Sigh.

I like a boy who doesn't repeat. My inner monologue is often quite animated. You might mistake me for an Italian pop star, and my brother is someone you could wipe your feet on. Who am I?
Lizzie McGuire has a longtime crush on Ethan Craft, who notably skips the 'repeat' step when washing his hair. Lizzie's inner-monologue is always delivered in cutaways by a cartoon version of her. In The Lizzie McGuire Movie, Lizzie looks exactly like (and stands in for) Italian pop star Isabella, who is also played by Hillary Duff. Her younger brother is named Matt.
