    Talking Movie Trivia

    Okay, we've got history trivia, music trivia, the obvious next step is Movie Trivia!

    First question:

    In the film The World According to Garp, what song is playing during the opening sequence of baby Garp being tossed up and down in the air in slow motion?

    I am so ashamed!

    First off can't believe I didn't think of this and second, I don't know the answer!!!

    "The Triple Goddess as Maiden, Mother and Crone, is a relatively new concept which was made popular during the 20th century. Hekate is today most often equated to the Crone aspect of this triplicate archetypal image, but this idea of Hekate as Crone Goddess is one which would have been completely alien to the people of ancient Greece. The only possible explanation for the continued association today is that somehow the darker, scarier aspects of Hekate has been equated to wisdom in old age, which is, when you think about it rather ludicrous." -- Sorita D'Este.

    I knew it had to be a beatles song because of your reaction but I've never seen the movie.

    Yup, I think that is it. I was wavering between Grape NeHi and Dr Pepper, but I can "hear" him say Dr Pepper but not NeHi!

    Way to go, Wtchy! I was beginning to think my first question was going to go unanswered!

    Yeah, I can hear Forrest in my head saying 'I must've had me about 15 Dr. Peppers' - or something like that.

    I've never even heard of Grape NeHi ~ maybe it's an American-only drink?

    OK, who's got the next question?


    BTW, Mith ~ you have GOT to rent that movie!

    Actually, Grape Nehi is just something that hasn't been around in years. So sad

    In the movie The Professional, what does Natalie Portman's character do at the end to signify that she is finally home?

    Oh, it's been ages since I saw this movie (worth it just for Gary Oldman ). Is it when she brings the plant for the hitman's apartment?
