The one I missed was this one: >:(
18.    What job did Scorpio once hold?
  A)    Janitor at Kezar Stadium
  B)    Seller of game programs at Kezar Stadium
  C)    Groundskeeper at Kezar Stadium
  D)    School bus inspector

I answered C Groundskeeper.   I quickly corrected it.

I thought he did both.  

The kid question was resolved by skipping the DVD to that part in the movie and simply counting them.

For the kid question, I played by mind. I knew 5 was too litte but 9 seemed like too many becuase the bus wasn't that crowded. So it was a choice between 7 or 8, so I decided to go with 7. 50/50 chance, but I got.

Either way congrats again D'Amb  8), and let us know when your prize arrives!!  :)

The "kid question" is actually answered in a line of dialogue ... the same one that answers the "school question." It's in the phone call from Scorpio that the Mayor takes in his office ...

Quote
MAYOR: This is the Mayor.

SCORPIO: I've got seven kids from the Park Street School.

Oh, that's right.  It's right after that the Mayor says something but the editors forgot to put that in.  My way worked as well too... ;)

Well done D!
Yeah the amount of Kids, I went by Scorpios line in the film, rather than trying to picture the scene in my head..

The one that I thought would stump everyone was this:

20.    What did Scorpio ask for at the liquor store?
  A)    Fifth of Seagram's
  B)    Fifth of Jack Daniels
  C)    Fifth of Smirnoff
  D)    Fifth of Gordon's

But mostly everyone got it.  Misty even got it on the second guess, which was good for Misty as far as the guessing went (poor girl seemed to guess wrong a few times for every question she didn't know. :( )

This one turned out to be a stumper for a few:

7.    Steve, the hospital intern, and Harry grew up together.  What part of town were they from?
  A)    Potrero Hill
  B)    The Richmond District
  C)    The Fillmore District
  D)    Taraval Hill

 ;D sadly, Matt is right. there were 4 questions I really didnt know, and I always guessed the 3 wrongs before the right. But it was fun
 Congrats again d'Amb!!

What's cool is that I have a 8X10 Glossy of Clint pointing the .44 mag from Sudden Impact.  It will go nicely next to that one.  Although the .44 mag one isn't signed by the man his self.  It's truly a keepsake.  Thanks again Matt... :D
