Winner gets my undying respect and admiration for an uninterrupted seventeen minutes.

Should have put that in in the first place.


But just between you and me, you're right!

6. Oooh! That's a GREAT guess, but no!
At least, not as far as I'm aware. I checked an online transcript of the dialogue, and the phrase doesn't appear to appear there!

10. I remember that scene
"Kal-El, my son. Always remember to tip your grocery clerks, or they're liable to lick the produce."

Very moving!

My time of day is the dark time a couple of deals before dawn
When the street belongs to the cop
And the janitor with a mop
And the grocery clerks are all gone.

--Sky Masterson


I totally respect you until 10:53pm ET.
