PCQOTD : 8-16-06

"Go right to the source and ask the horse. He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse."

Erudites (both share the same Connection to the Plebian):
"We'll hitchhike, bus or yellow cab it!"
"It was always burning since the world's been turning."

Okay, those were hard. Here's an easier one:

"It's the peanut butter picky people pick."

P: "Mr Ed" theme

E1: "The Muppet Movie"
E2: "We Didn't Start The Fire" by Billy Joel

All three have spoken word segments!

Ted said...

Very correct identifications, and remarkably swift!

A different Connection, though...

Ben Moser said...

C1: Miss Piggy, Mr. Ed
C2: Running gags. For example the "Lost? Have you tried hari krishna?" in the Muppet movie and Richard Nixon counts as a running gag in We Didn't Start the Fire.

SE: Peter Pan peanut butter

SEC: Peanut butter was how they got Ed to "talk."

Ben has indeed nailed the SE and the SEC (although we're still waiting on the results of his ACC and Big 10 scores.)

The main Connection has still to be identified. It's a hard one. I'd give a hint at this point, but I don't want to steer you in the wrong direction. Get it on your own.

"We Didn't Start The Fire" has the line "Joe McCarthy, Richard Nixon, Studebaker, television
North Korea, South Korea, Marilyn Monroe."

During the song "Movin' Right Along" from "The Muppet Movie", Kermit and Fozzie are driving a Studebaker.

The "Mister Ed" show was sponsored by Studebaker.
