I knew the premise, couldn't remember the name. Return To Me is some David Duchovny movie, isn't it?

Question #3 for Slackmo:

Partially due to licensing issues, the title song of this 1993 movie was not included in the film, but there is a scene in school where Slater discusses John Bonham's drum solos with one of his friends, saying "you couldn't handle that shit on strong acid!"

correct

Question #4 for Music Saves:

Following in the footsteps of Pretty in Pink, what 1998 teen comedy takes its name from an underappreciated indie rock track, in this case a single from the 1987 album Pleased to Meet Me?

i have a funny (incorrect) response to this Q
"the ladies have been checking me out lately.... could it be the 10 push-ups i've been cranking out every other Sunday? - Perhaps!" -Scrubs


Some people are a lot like slinkys... kinda useless, not really good for anything -but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs

"After much thought into this, I have finally come to a conclusion as to why the ‘Meet the Spartans’ commercial is so funny:

It is an interesting choice to have Sanjaya sing ‘I’m not gay,’ as his final words on earth. As he is plummeting into a seemingly bottomless pit, he does not say ‘dear god no,’ ‘I love you mom,’ or even simply ‘argh.’ He instead takes the moment to reaffirm to the world, in spite of their doubts, that he is not a homosexual. Not only that, but he continues to sing, despite falling to his certain death. The distinct lack of plausibility of this situation is what produces giggles from our mouth. It is the antithesis to the belief that ‘it’s funny because it is true.’

correct Question #5 to Slackmo. He can win with a correct answer. What 1989 drama / thriller was not only named after a doo-wop hit from 30 years earlier, but includes it as a key plot point in the movie, serving as the killer's musical trademark?

Sea of Love is correct.

Slackmo wins, 3-1, and after the day's rocky start, becomes our first player to advance to the 3rd round.

OK, if Slackmo gets this, fair enough, good game, but if he's wrong, I have to Time Out for a minute and help the wife with groceries, or she'll kill me. :rolleyes: EDIT: GOOD GAME!!!

OK, Question #1 for Mad Clown: What is the name of the underground-dwelling woman who briefly kidnaps Sayid, spears the Other known as "Henry," and generally shows up every now and then to try to freak people out? (either first or last name acceptable)
