TV fun time!


Several of my blog buddies have had movie quote quizzes over the past few weeks, and I always enjoy this type of trivia. I've decided to join the fun by having a TV quote quiz. Below are 16 quotes from TV shows. If you know any of these put in a comment and I will give credit to the first person who gets a show right until all the quotes have been identified. I will identify any quotes that have not been claimed by Sunday.

Best of luck.

Added hints on Friday!

Oh am I that hopeless?

Sheesh, the maths are one thing but this?

I think maybe O is PeeWee Herman. Maybe.

Feeling vulnerable and afraid, I slink away.

I didn't think that Pee Wee's Playhouse would be the first to go, but you nailed it, Fran.

Some others are easy, at least I think they are. Others may go unidentified.

Splotchy said...

I definitely have seen/heard [b] before, and I know [e] from somewhere as well. It's killing me that I can't think of [b].

I'm going to take a little bit of a guess with [h] -- WKRP in Cincinnati?

Padre Mickey said...

I believe the line about Vic Hitler was from Hill Street Blues.

Padre Mickey said...

Also, after some reflection, I believe that [b] is from Los Simpsons.

Tara Mobley said...

C is from Firefly.

Karla said...

A is the Wire?

E is Buffy.

J is Babylon 5.

K is The Mary Tyler Moore Show (The Death of Chuckles).

P is The Chappelle Show.

Matty Boy said...

Every entry so far has been correct. All have been updated.

Karla, a is Ziggy talking to the duck.

Matty Boy said...

I have added a little extra cluey goodness to m, both to make it reachable and to make the quote accurate, to the best of my recollection.

Padre Mickey said...

Yeah, that made it MUCH easier: Fawlty Towers.

Karla said...

Zig!

G is Dah Tick!

Matty Boy said...

Extra hinty goodness added on Friday.

jolie said...

I'm going to guess that L - that kim novak had some big breasts - is from seinfeld.

pretty sure hatcher guest starred.

Matty Boy said...
