So is the Dylan quote correct or not?

It didn't sound right to me. I love Dylan's work, but I don't have encyclopedic knowledge of him either. It was the only Q that I even hesitated on, and I guessed "Anyone who says Trust Me", that sounds a lot more insightful than an age or what you wear - more 'Dylan-esque', IMO.

If so, I scored a 21 for detecting the wrong one! It's tough to google a negative. But my googling did not come up with anything credible to attribute it to him.

It's definitely not Dylan. When I lost that bar bet the guy was carrying around a newspaper article as proof. It was from back in the 60s (this was the late 70s) and it had the comment and the attribution. I don't remember the paper, probably some SF paper. But it was convincing enough that I bought his beer for the rest of the night.

20 without even trying (but don't ask me what I had for dinner yesterday).

#10 is from the wizard of oz.



And what did Maynard always say when he appeared out of nowhere?

And what word described the reason that Zelda and Dobie were going to fall in love (starts with "pro")?

"Work!" Or was it "You rang?"

I'm stumped on that one, but I do recall that the actress that played Zelda later admitted to being a lesbian. Thalia Menninger (character) played by Tuesday Weld , however, played straight and was straight in real life.

How did you figure that, since their answer to #11 appears to be wrong?

"You rang!" was the one I was thinking of. He'd say "Work?!" if anyone mentioned the word "work."

And the Zelda word was "Propinquity."

"Over 30" was the best choice, even if wrong.

One of the secrets to multiple guess choice tests is the process of elimination.

The answer was right, it was just the question that was wrong.

My memories of the Dobie Gillis show are mostly vague, with a few specifics stuck in my head. Can't recall if I saw it 'live' or the re-runs. I did have the impression it was pretty creative - Dobie giving his viewpoint directly to the audience as he sits by "The Thinker", not your typical sit-com in some ways. I remembered the beatnik and his name, and the 'you rang?' and 'Daddy-O', and that his Dad was a Grocer...


Anyway, a bit of googling and I found a few episodes here:

TV4u - Your source for online classic television

Hmmm, so the cute girl was Tuesday Weld - didn't know that. I think it holds up pretty well, guy wants girl, girl wants guy with money (or the ability to make money in this one clip). And Warren Beaty as the rich kid - didn't know that either, but then again they were not famous back then.

Interesting, the actress playing Dobie Gillis' mom is one of the patients in the Bob Newhart show.

17 - but I'm only 40 and lots of those were before my time! Good thing the grandparents made me watch their TV with the old stuff on re-runs in the 70's!
