Rush: Please excuse the tired fingers not to mention BRAIN, tonight!

Rush: yes, Mike.

Matt1: Congrats to her!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Maybe she can learn to play the bagpipes while she’s there…

Rush: The family has a home in N. Ireland and Brooklyn.

Dona: That would be Scottland

Rush: maybe she can!

Rush: 🙂

Mike n Rachel in DC: No, Irish do bagpipes too…they’re all over the place!

Dona: I didn’t know that

Dona: Thank you Mike.

Dona: I thought they were all in Scottland.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Not sure if they’ve permeated Northern Ireland yet…

Rush: Dona, I am also not too familiar with the irish bagpiping!

Dona: I’ve never been to Ireland or Scottland but I would love to go someday.

Rush: Possibly I will at some point, who knows?

mda19083: mike – thanks for the chan quiz – I know it must have taken great effort to put it together – I enjoyed it immensely

RickET has joined this room

Matt1: Hello Rick!

Rush: Rick! WELCOME!

RickET: Hello all!

Rush: Yes, to Mike’s quiz!

Matt1: My text in lagging here tonight, hmmmm

Mike n Rachel in DC: You’re very welcome…there are more parts if folks are interested!

Rush: He DID indeed put a lot of work into it!

Matt1: Well done Mike, thnx!

Rush: MORE to come!

Mike n Rachel in DC: It was my “I don’t want to work on music stuff this summer” project. :-)

Rush: AH!

Matt1: We’ll give you an “A”

Mike n Rachel in DC: And Rachel helped proofread and make sure the questions made sense

Rush: It has given us a shared summer experience!

Matt1: or 4.0

mda19083: mike – i am definitely interested – i fared well – 34 out of 36

Dona: I was poking around on the website Rush and saw the book and ordered it. I love the pictures.

Mike n Rachel in DC 

Rush: YAY…MDA!!!

Rush: Master sleuth!

Dona: You did great Mike.

Mike n Rachel in DC: MDA = Most Worthy Successor! Great!

Rush: Yes!

mda19083: TYSM!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Thanks, Dona. It was a labor of love and I’m glad it’s given folks some enjoyment!

Rush: Well, Hawaii Steve has offered some diverse extras for this evening!

Dona: I’m going to study more before the next one.

Matt1: Can’t wait!

Rush: he was able to find a few things that at least vaguely relate to our movie for tonight, “The Chinese Cat”!

Rush: The first is a cartoon about a taxicab family, in honor of Birmingham Brown’s own taxicab that plays a part in tonight’s film!

Matt1: Fun!

Rush: I liked the idea of showing a vintage cartoon, as those were always a part of the movie-going experience “back in the day”!

Rush: 19:10….

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Raymond Edward Someone?

Rush: This is a reference to the “Lights Out” radio show!

Matt1: Stale bread

Godwinshelley2: sounded like the clerk on the radio

mda19083: a prize inside every loaf

Rich Maine: Cracker jack bread

Rush: Maybe the clerk doubled as the voice!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: I’m gonna tell my friends i have a lotta bread in my freezer (which i do: Dave’s Bread usually $6.99, periodically on sale at $4.99, & i always get 6 loaves then); i will watch my friends to see who kills me, or Foxx.

Rush: Foggy room!

Rush: A bit of bread for that bread…

Rush: Must be excellent.

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Did Yellow Cab have some kind of deal with Hollywood back in the day? An early iteration of Product Placement?

Rich Maine: A coming for your loaves!

Rush: Maybe, Angel!

Rush: Or…more likely, Monogram hired a car in order to use it in the movie!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Rush, we’re not an economist OR a biologist. Mere humble defective.

Rush: maybe they received a discount due to the “plug.”

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: This guy’s ready to get the wheels kicked out from under him.

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Rush, ya think?

Rush: Expert is merely man who make quick decision – and is sometimes right.

Rich Maine: I am an expert

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Sidney looking kinda gray here.

Godwinshelley2: Is Mom still around?

Rush: BIG money!!!

Rush: “Silence is golden.”

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: I can’t unsee the pricipal Poop’s glove.; Now all the hands look naked. Eeeew!

Rush: “If mind not too small…”

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: And here’s tonight’s panel!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: What’s a matta you? Why you looka so sad?

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Ah, shuduppa you mom!

mda19083: housekeeper did a poor job dusting

Rush: Ouch! Pop is pretty blunt tonight!

Rush: BUT…the smile comes through!

Godwinshelley2: He’s still mad about #3 playing hookie

Rush: YES!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: If all 14 Chan offspring (or limbs) spring off another 14, 1960s Chan Family Reunion would need 196 seats just for the third generation.

Rush: (tick-tick-tick…)

Mike n Rachel in DC: no one will find this bomb here on the seat

Matt1: tic-toc

Dona: Is he carring a bowling ball?

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: MY wretched work gets a regular price “adjustment”. WE use abacus.

Mike n Rachel in DC: cha-ching!

Rush: CC best call the Yellow Cab Company about the car!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Next big gem should be called The Baseball Diamond.

Rush: 🙂

Rich Maine: Diamonds

Rush: (boing!)

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Rush, CC needs to call CHRYSLER, order a Sky-View!

Mike n Rachel in DC: kitty need litter box

mda19083: aha

Rush: Yes, Angel!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Hello Kitty!

Rush: :0

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Not a Sky-View. Gonna have to wait till post-war, now.

Mike n Rachel in DC: back to fog music

Rich Maine: Why is a fun house here?

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Anybody ever hear an OTR item (Inner Sanctum or some such) called “Death Across The Board”, where the usual madman is offing people in relation to a diabolical (natch) chess game on his diabolical secret chess board?

Rush: We will soon see, Rich!

mda19083: everyone loves the fun house

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Have a Chesterfield.

Rush: 🙂

mda19083: LSMFT

Rush: “ABC”

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: DUFFY’s TAVERN had a backward “S”, but the “N” was ol’school.

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Chan is the Voice of Experience.

Rush: Once you have large family, all other troubles mean nothing.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Charlie = cupid. AGAIN

Mike n Rachel in DC: I wonder how many children he has been responsible for beyond his 14?

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: TYSM

Rush

Rush: The chase!

Dona: I love all the old cars

Rush: Chase music…

Rush: Me too, Dona!

Rush: CLASSIC!

Dona: YES

Godwinshelley2: Like that exciting “walking to the cab/building” music

Rush: Pride in design back then!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Can you shout any louder, BB?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, GS. Monogram needs to up their “exciting music” game.

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: GS, we liked the cab music too! Very excessive!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Time to rent a few tunes from 20th C Fox

Matt1: <tin can>

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Would a series of performances by the leader of Twisted Sister be called The Dee Tour?

Rush: 🙂

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Her scarf was scarfed from a Christmas wreath.’

Hounder: Hi M n r

Rich Maine: Fun house is best fun here

Rush: Moral: “Never carry the world’s largest diamond with you into a diamond smuggling gang’s hideout!”

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Lionel Hampton woulda done this REAL good!

Rush: Well, Lionel was well-“trained.”

Rush: This is the point where CC does something we will hear about later.

Rich Maine: Military secret?

Hounder: Now my computer decided to update. Ugg

Rush: Not exactly…

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: Rush: with REAL GLYCERIN VIBRAFOAM!

Da Hep Cats, Angel & Foxx: baC wolleY

Rush: BB’s “friend.”

Rich Maine: P,uck his eyebrows

Mike n Rachel in DC: The dreaded “eyebrow plucking torture” Phil!

Rush: Diamond-holding tweezers.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Idiots

Hounder: It wouldn’t connect to wifi so I was going to reboot. Now I have ablue screen that says ‘getting windows ready don’t turn off yourcomputer.’ And it’s taking a long time. Sigh.

Phil: Forget the eyebrows – go for the nose.

Dona: hrry

Dona: hurry

Rush: The gimmicks in this Monogram: The secret compartments and the gang’s number system.
