"Kojak" Interestingly, his ability always to find a parking space exactly where he needed to be became an idiom: "kojaking" a parking space.

Moishe, Lawrence, Shmuel, and Jerry

George

Ok, let's see.

4 Jewish names. One is Lawrence- or "Larry" for short.

If I trimmed "Moishe" down, I might get "Moe".

"Shmuel" might be changed to "Shep".

So, I might have Moe, Larry, Shep, and Shep's replacement(s), Curly.

That would make any 3 of them "THE THREE STOOGES."

I'm not clear what your point is then. I don't think I'm much older than anyone here. I thought the whole point of this game was to stir memories ,and realize-'oh yeah-I do remember that show !' I'm

it was Combat-on Tuesdays before McHales Navy on ABC.I don't have a fresh show handy at the moment, and off for the day. anyone may jump in.

I'm glad someone else had heard of it. He could have dropped the name and I still wouldn't have gotten close.

Correct, except it's "Shemp," not "Shep." (In fact, "Shep" might be a clue to another show...)

I forget what show I watched recently, maybe "Psych," where a hospital page announcement called for "Dr. Fine, Dr. Besser, Dr. DeRita" instead of the old Stooges line "Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard." A cute in-joke with a wink to Curly's replacements, Joe Besser and "Curly Joe" DeRita. But I digress.

You're up!

"The Munsters"?

George

It was "The Munsters."

Grandpa made the car after Herman lost the family car in a street race,

to race and win the family car back.

It was Grandpa's coffin, of course.

If you watch the Rob Zombie video, you'll see a copy of the family car in it.

Your turn.

This one was in syndication about a decade ago, so it may not be that well-known. I liked it, though!

Capt. Dylan Hunt resurrects the Systems Commonwealth with the help of the smokin' hot avatar of his spaceship and a bunch of mercenaries, including a Nietzschean and a Magog.

Let's see - it's got to be Sci-Fi, a series probably more than ten years old, not Star Trek in any of it's incarnations -

So, I'll take a stab in the dark and say Andromeda?

That's correct, but I wonder how you guessed that. If you had seen the show, it wouldn't have been a "stab in the dark."

Incidentally, one of my favorite TV lines comes from the show, when Capt. Hunt has to confront his one-time ally, the Nietzschean, Tyr Anasazi, who is trying to become all-powerful. Says Tyr, "At the end of the universe, there will only be three things: the cockroaches, Tyr Ansazi, and Dylan Hunt, desperately trying to save the cockroaches!" :lol:

You surmise correctly, I haven't seen the show. However, I have seen commercials and a friend of mine was into sci-fi,

so I searched my memory and that's the only, and I mean only, thing I could come up with. So, I went for it,

and never expected to have guessed correctly.

Or maybe, I'm just psychic. :evildenk:

:lol: Hannibal's reply usually was, "Just drink your milk, B.A." You would think that even Sgt. Baracus would eventually figure out his milk was drugged!

George

A few times, he worked it out.

Once, he threw away the milk, and just ate his sandwich. And passed out because the SANDWICH was drugged.

Another time, he insisted Murdock swap glasses with him. They both drank, and Murdock fell down.

BA laughed about it, then collapsed. Murdock just got up at that point.

And one time he wasn't drugged- they hypnotized him.

"Murphy Brown"

Dan Quayle suggested that an unwed mother was not the best of role models.

PS for anyone who didn't get my previous post, since neither WW nor I actually gave the title: "The A-Team"

The "Prefab Four"
