Transcript: Nortel Stock, Trivia Game, Thom's Movies | Oct 27, 2000

(Music plays)

The opening sequence shows a wooden table with a small-lit candle as several
words fly by: Nutrition, medicine, prevention, treatment, and health. Fast clips
show different sets of hands performing activities on the table such as pulling
petals from a daisy, drawing a big red heart, tuning a violin, flipping through
the pages of a book, cooking, and pouring a glass of red wine. In animation, the
title appears inside the shape of a house: “More to life.”

Maureen Taylor sits in a studio with yellow walls and a small TV set in the
background, which reads “More to life.”

Maureen is in her late thirties, with wavy brown hair in a bob. She's wearing a
black and white blazer over a orange blouse.

Maureen says WELCOME TO
MORE TO LIFE.
I'M MAUREEN TAYLOR.
IN A FEW MINUTES, WE'LL BE
TESTING YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF
TRIVIA WITH OUR OWN GAME
SHOW, WHO WANTS TO WIN A
MORE TO LIFE MUG.
AND MOVIE BUFF THOM ERNST
WILL BE HERE TO RECOMMEND
SOME SCARY HALLOWEEN FLICKS.
BUT, FIRST, IT'S BEEN A
BIT OF A NIGHTMARE DOWN AT
THE TSE THIS WEEK.
AS YOU'VE PROBABLY HEARD, THE
TORONTO STOCK EXCHANGE WENT
INTO FREE FALL ON WEDNESDAY
DROPPING MORE THAN 800 POINTS.
THE BIGGEST POINT
LOSS IN ITS HISTORY.
NOW MUCH OF THIS WAS DRIVEN
BY INVESTORS DUMPING
NORTEL STOCKS.
THE STOCK IS BOUNCING BACK A
LITTLE BIT, BUT IF YOU'VE GOT
MUTUAL FUNDS, RRSPs OR A
PENSION PLAN, CHANCES ARE
YOU'VE LOST SOME MONEY.
TO EXPLAIN THE DROP AND THE
SPINOFF EFFECTS FOR ALL OF US,
I'M JOINED BY ANDREW BELL.
HE'S AN INVESTMENT REPORTER
WITH THE GLOBE AND MAIL.
HI, ANDREW.

Andrew is in his forties and has short brown hair and is clean-shaven. He wears
a black blazer with a white button up shirt.

The caption appears and reads “Andrew Bell. Investment Reporter Globe and Mail.”

Andrew says HEY, HI.

Maureen says WHY DID NORTEL DROP?
WHY WERE THEY DUMPING IT?

Andrew says WELL, PEOPLE HAVE BECOME
OBSESSED WITH NORTEL.
THEY BID IT UP TO ABOUT
100 TIMES ITS EARNINGS.
PEOPLE HAD DECIDED
IT COULD DO NO WRONG.
JOHN ROTH WAS WORSHIPPED.
NOW EVERYBODY HATES HIM.
AND, ESSENTIALLY, IT WAS THEIR
LACK OF CANDOR AND FRANKNESS
WITH THE MARKET.
IT'S NOT THAT THEY WERE TRYING
TO MISLEAD ANYONE, BUT THEY
ARE NOTORIOUS FOR NOT REALLY
REVEALING WHAT ITEMS, WHAT
PRODUCTS ARE SELLING WELL.
SO THEY UNLEASHED AN
UNPLEASANT SURPRISE ON
TUESDAY EVENING.

Maureen says WHAT WAS THAT
UNPLEASANT SURPRISE?

Andrew says BASICALLY, THAT FIBRE OPTIC
SALES ARE NOT GROWING AS FAST
AS EVERYBODY HAD HOPED.
AND THE REVENUE IS NOT GROWING
AS FAST AS EVERYBODY HAD HOPED.
AS YOU KNOW, EVERYBODY IS
FRUSTRATED WITH THE SLOWNESS
OF THE INTERNET.
I'M SURE YOU ARE.
EVERYBODY IS FRUSTRATED WITH
THE SLOWNESS OF BANK MACHINES.
WE'RE TOTALLY IN A
BANDWIDTH CRISIS.
SO NORTEL MAKES SYSTEMS
THAT WILL SPEED THAT UP.
SO THERE IS INCREDIBLE DEMAND
FOR THEIR PRODUCT, BUT IT HAD
BETTER BE INCREDIBLE WITH THE
PRICE THIS STOCK IS TRADING AT.

Maureen says SO YOU'VE JUST DONE TWO
THINGS, YOU'VE HELPED
EXPLAINED WHAT IT IS NORTEL
MAKES, WHICH IS GREAT.
BUT LET'S KEY IN
ON WHAT YOU SAID.
REVENUES AREN'T GROWING
AS FAST AS EXPECTED.
THEY'RE STILL GROWING.

Andrew says YES, THEY ARE
STILL GROWING, YES.
BUT WE'RE LOOKING AT, I MEAN,
WE HAVE TO LOOK AT PAST ERAS
WHEN STOCKS CLIMBED
TO VERY HIGH PRICES.
SAY THE NOTORIOUS '60s, THE
NIFTY '50 OR THE '60s, STOCKS
WENT TO ABOUT 40 TIMES
EARNINGS, AND THAT WAS
CONSIDERED RIDICULOUS, AND
IT WAS A LEGEND FOR YEARS.
BUT WE'VE SEEN NORTEL THIS
SUMMER, TRADING AT ABOUT
100 TIMES EARNINGS.
SO THAT'S UNPRECEDENTED.
ESPECIALLY FOR A COMPANY THAT,
AT ITS PEAK, WAS WORTH WANT A
QUARTER OF A TRILLION DOLLARS.

Maureen says NOW, I DIDN'T PICK UP THE
PHONE AFTER TUESDAY NIGHT
AND CALL MY BROKER
AND SAY “DUMP NORTEL.”
WHO WERE THOSE GUYS ON THE
FLOOR OF THE TSE AND FLYING
TO NEW YORK TO SELL?

Andrew says WELL, THE PROS
WERE GETTING OUT.
BECAUSE, BASICALLY, WHAT WE
HAVE IS IT'S THE DAWN OF
THE MOMO INVESTOR.
MOMO IS KIND OF BABY
TALK FOR MOMENTUM.
PEOPLE WANT TO JUMP ON A
STOCK WHILE IT'S GOING UP.
FORGET BUYING CHEAP STOCKS,
THAT'S OUT THE WINDOW.
THE FASHION THESE DAYS IS JUMP
ON SOMETHING THAT'S GOING UP,
AND HOPE IT GOES HIGHER.
THE MAGIC, THE THRILL
IS GONE WITH NORTEL NOW.
TUESDAY NIGHT, PEOPLE WERE
JUST SAYING, GOOD-BYE.

Maureen says THEY WERE.
AND WILL THEY BUY BACK
IN NOW THAT IT'S SO LOW?
WELL, SO LOW.

Andrew says THERE ARE TWO
THINGS ABOUT THAT.
PEOPLE DON'T BUY
VALUE STORIES ANYMORE.
PEOPLE DON'T CARE.
I MEAN, YOU SEE A COMPANY LIKE
HUDSON BAY COMPANY BUMPING
ALONG THE BOTTOM.
EVEN A VERY WELL-RUN COMPANY
LIKE IBM, IT'S DOING OKAY NOW,
BUT FOR A LONG TIME, IT'S A
MAGNIFICENT COMPANY, IT'S THE
WORLD'S BIGGEST COMPUTER
COMPANY, NOBODY WANTED
TO KNOW ABOUT IT.
COMPAQ, WONDERFULLY RUN
COMPANIES, NOBODY WANTS TO
KNOW ABOUT THEIR STOCKS.
PEOPLE JUST WANT THINGS
THAT ARE GOING UP --
AND GOING UP EXPONENTIALLY.
SO WILL THEY GO
BACK INTO NORTEL?
YEAH, SURE, THEY MAY GO BACK
INTO NORTEL, BUT IT'LL NEVER
GO BACK TO THE
GO-GO CRAZY DAYS.

Maureen says SO WHERE DO YOU THINK NORTEL
STOCK WILL BE IN A YEAR?
WELL, I'M GOING TO MAKE MY
PREDICTION BECAUSE I THINK
THAT'S WHAT I'M ON FOR.
NORTEL SHARES, LAST TIME I
LOOKED, THAT WAS AROUND LUNCH
TIME TODAY, THEY WERE
AROUND 71 BUCKS IN TORONTO.
I WOULD SAY THEY'LL BE ABOUT
50 BUCKS IN A YEAR'S TIME.
IT'S GOING DOWN.

Maureen says ITS STILL, IT HASN'T FALLEN AS
MUCH AS IT'S GOING TO.

Andrew says NO, I DON'T THINK SO BECAUSE
THERE'S AN AWFUL LOT OF ANGER
OUT THERE WITH NORTEL
AND THEIR ARROGANCE.
AND I THINK THAT'S
FAIR ENOUGH TO SAY.

Maureen says AND THAT'S JOHN ROTH
THE CEO, RESPONSIBLE?
HE'S A VERY
WELL-RESPECTED GUY.
HE MADE ONE MAGNIFICENT CALL,
AND I'D BE GLAD TO TALK
ABOUT THAT.

Maureen says QUICKLY, WHAT WAS THAT?

Andrew says HE JUMPED INTO A
TECHNOLOGY CALLED OC 192.
AND ESSENTIALLY, HE'S
A ONE-TRICK PONY.
THAT'S THE THING HE GOT RIGHT.
OC 192 IS FOR SENDING LIGHT
SIGNALS ON FIBRE OPTIC LINES
AT UNPRECEDENTED SPEEDS,
10 GIGABYTES A SECOND.
AND HE WAS THE ONE
THAT JUMPED INTO THAT.
LUCENT, WHICH IS AMERICA'S
NORTEL, GOT THAT WRONG.
THEY JUST FIRED THEIR BOSS.

Maureen says UH!

Andrew says BUT ROTH ANTICIPATED WE
WOULD BE FRUSTRATED WITH THE
SLOWNESS OF THE INTERNET,
THE WORLDWIDE WAIT.
AND HE REALIZED HE SHOULD
INVEST IN THIS FIBRE TECHNOLOGY.
BUT HE MADE THAT ONE CALL.
HE DOESN'T WALK ON WATER.
BASICALLY, NORTEL, UNTIL VERY
RECENTLY, WAS JUST A BORING
COMPANY THAT SOLD BORING
TELEPHONE SWITCHES.
AND UNLESS HE CAN KEEP THIS
FIBRE THING COMING, UNLESS HE
CAN COME UP WITH A NEW TRICK,
NORTEL'S REALLY GOING DOWN FAST.

Maureen says WELL, HE'S GOT WHOEVER
DECIDES WHICH STOCKS WILL BE
PART OF THE TSE 300 CONVINCED.
BECAUSE IT MAKES UP,
WHAT, 30 PERCENT?

Andrew says YEAH, IT PEAKED OUT
AT ABOUT 32 PERCENT.
AND THEN EVEN THEN THE NEWER,
FLASHIER, SP 60 STOCK INDEX
IN TORONTO, WHICH IS MEANT TO
REPLACE THE BORING OLD 300,
IT GOT UP TO 42 PERCENT.
SO IT'S 42 PERCENT
OF OUR MARKET.

Maureen says ISN'T THAT TOO MUCH?

Andrew says WELL, WHAT CAN THEY DO?
I MEAN, THIS IS WHAT
THE COMPANY IS WORTH.
IT'S WORTH QUARTER OF A
TRILLION DOLLARS U.S.
IT'S SUPER SUCCESSFUL.
THAT'S WHAT IT IS.
THAT'S WHAT THE
STOCK IS OUT THERE.
THEY HAVE TO MAKE THE INDEX
REFLECT THE VALUE OF COMPANIES.
THEY CAN'T SORT OF SAY, WELL,
I THINK NORTEL, IT'S OVER-

Maureen says YEAH.

Andrew says BECAUSE THEN THEY START MESSING
AROUND AND PICKING STOCKS.

Maureen says WELL, WHAT ABOUT THE
AVERAGE INVESTOR?
HAVE WE LOST MONEY?

Andrew says WELL, WE HAVE, BUT IT
AIN'T A DISASTER.
WE LOOKED AT THE AVERAGE
CANADIAN EQUITY FUND DURING
THE WEEK.
AND BY LAW, THEY CAN'T
GO ABOVE 10 PERCENT.
AND THERE ARE A FEW
MECHANISTIC THINGS THERE WHERE
MAYBE THEY COULD, BUT BASICALLY
THE LIMIT IS THEY COULDN'T
PUT MORE THAN 10 PERCENT
OF THEIR MONEY INTO NORTEL.
AND WE FOUND THE TYPICAL FUND
MANAGER OUT THERE HAD PUT
ABOUT 9 PERCENT OF HIS OR
HER ASSETS INTO NORTEL.
SO THE THING, NORTEL HAS LOST
ABOUT A THIRD OF ITS VALUE
THIS WEEK.
ROUGHLY, IT WAS 103 BUCKS
THERE LAST FRIDAY, IT'S 71
NOW, SO YOU'VE TAKEN A 3
PERCENT HIT ON YOUR MUTUAL
FUND BECAUSE OF THIS THING.
NOW, THERE HAS BEEN COLLATERAL
DAMAGE, AS THEY USED TO SAY
IN VIETNAM, OBVIOUSLY, OTHER
TECH COMPANIES THAT SELL TO
NORTEL HAVE BEEN HURT.
SO THE TSE HAS COME DOWN.
BUT IT'S NOT A DISASTER
FOR MUTUAL FUNDS.

Maureen says WHAT IF YOU HAD ONE OF THOSE
MUTUAL FUNDS THAT TRACKS
THE TSE?

Andrew says AH, THE INDEX FUNDS, AS
PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PREDICTING.
AND IT'S VERY
INTERESTING, YEAH.
AN INDEX FUND HAS NOW BECOME A
CRAZY, GO-GO MOMENTUM STOCK,
A CANADIAN INDEX FUND.
AND WHAT CAN YOU SAY.
THAT'S THE THING
WITH INDEX FUNDS.
THEY'RE WONDERFUL,
THEY'RE JUST PASSIVE.
IT'S LIKE, YOU
DON'T TRY TO GUESS.
YOU JUST BUY.
NOW, HAVING SAID THAT,
NORTEL COULD TREBLE AGAIN.
IT DID GO UP ABOUT SIX FOLD,
OR STILL HAS, SINCE 1998.
IT WAS TRADING ABOUT 12 BUCKS
ADJUSTED FOR STOCK SPLITS AND
STUFF IN LATE '98.
IT'S 72 DOLLARS
TODAY, 71 DOLLARS.
IT'S GONE UP SIX FOLD.
IT COULD GO UP ANOTHER SIX
FOLD AGAIN, IN WHICH CASE THE
INDEX FUNDS WILL
LOOK WONDERFUL.
BUT RIGHT NOW, THEY
LOOK LIKE HOBOS.

Maureen says WHAT'S THE MESSAGE HERE THEN
FOR THE PERSON WHO REALLY IS
INVESTING IN MUTUAL FUNDS AS
PART OF THEIR RETIREMENT OR
THEIR RESP FOR THEIR KID?

Andrew says WELL, PROBABLY
HOLD AN INDEX FUND.
YOU SHOULD HAVE
AN INDEX FUND.
YOU SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST SOME
OF YOUR MONEY IN AN INDEX FUND.
THEY'RE CHEAP, THEY
TRACK THE MARKET,
AND THEY OWN THE WINNERS.
AND YOU WANT THE
OWN THE WINNERS.
THE WINNERS GET TO
DOMINATE THE MARKET.
BUT ALSO, OWN A COUPLE OF FUNDS
THAT DON'T FOLLOW THAT STYLE.
OWN A COUPLE OF TRIMARKS,
OWN AN IVY CANADIAN.
I'M NOT HERE, SORRY, TO
SHILL FUNDS, BUT OWN BORING
COMPANIES, BORING MUTUAL FUND
COMPANIES THAT DON'T LIKE TECH.
THEY'VE DONE TERRIBLY
OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS
BUT, EVENTUALLY,
THEY'LL HAVE THEIR DAY.

Maureen says AND IS THERE AN ARGUMENT
HERE FOR CHANGING, AGAIN,
THE FOREIGN CONTENT
RULES FOR RRSPS?

Andrew says WELL... IT GETS INTO A
BIG VALUE JUDGMENT THERE.
I MEAN, PEOPLE ARE GETTING
A VERY RICH TAX BREAK BY
INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS,
SHOULD THEY HAVE TO KEEP IT
IN CANADA.
NOW, ACADEMICS PAID BY THE
INVESTMENT INDUSTRY HAVE
ARGUED THAT, ACTUALLY, THE
FOREIGN CONTENT LIMIT DOESN'T
BENEFIT CANADIAN COMPANIES.
YOU SHOULD PROBABLY GET YOUR
MONEY OUTSIDE OF CANADA,
UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE, AS YOU
KNOW, WE'RE ONLY 3 PERCENT OF
THE WORLD MARKET.
AND WE ARE JUST QUITE
A NARROW MARKET.
WE'RE JUST A VERY
SMALL MARKET.
YOU SHOULD PROBABLY HAVE A
GOOD BIT OF YOUR MONEY IN
EUROPE AND AMERICA.

Maureen says NOW, ON A SIDE ISSUE, THE
COMPUTERS AT THE TSE JUST BLEW
IT AT NOON ON WEDNESDAY.
COULDN'T HANDLE ALL
OF THIS TRADING.

Andrew says YEAH, IT'S UNFORTUNATE,
BUT THEY HAD NO CHOICE.
I MEAN, THEY HAD TO
MAINTAIN A FAIR MARKET.
AND WE ARE HEARING A LOT OF
HORROR STORIES, NOT THE TSE's
FAULT, OF BROKERS MAKING A
KILLING ARBITRAGING THE TWO.
BASICALLY, TAKING ADVANTAGE
OF THE DELAYS IN THE
TRADING SYSTEMS.
MEANWHILE, THE PUBLIC CAN'T
GET THROUGH TO TRADE THEIR
STOCKS, THEY CAN'T GET
THROUGH TO THEIR BROKER.
SO THERE'S PROBABLY
A LOT OF ANGER.
AND THIS PROBABLY WILL SEND
MORE MONEY INTO INDEX FUNDS
BECAUSE THESE INDEX
FUNDS DON'T USE BROKERS.

Maureen says BUT DOES THE TTC -- TSC,
SORRY, ITSELF HAVE TO WORK OUT
THESE GLITCHES IN
THEIR COMPUTERS?

Andrew says YEAH.
IT'S TURNED INTO A BIT OF
A FINGER POINTING EXERCISE
RIGHT NOW.
IT'S VERY MESSY POLITICALLY.
THE BROKERS HAVE NOT INVESTED
AS MUCH AS THEY SHOULD HAVE
IN COMPUTER SYSTEMS.
AND THE IRONY WITH THE TSE IS
THAT THE OLD STEAM POWERED
CAT SYSTEM, THE OLD ONE
THAT'S BEEN AROUND FOR ABOUT
15 YEARS, THAT'S
WORKING JUST FINE.
IT'S THE NEWER SOFTWARE
THAT'S NOT WORKING.

Maureen says ALL RIGHT.
AND JUST FINALLY, THERE'S
A CREDIBILITY ISSUE HERE.
JOHN ROTH IS GOING TO KEEP
PREDICTING EARNINGS AND
REVENUES AND PROFITS.
ARE WE GOING TO
LISTEN ANYMORE?

Andrew says WELL, IT'S NOT SO MUCH HIS
PREDICTIONS ARE THE PROBLEM.
I MEAN, HE HASN'T BEEN HUNG UP
ON THAT, BUT HE'S JUST BEEN
VERY, VERY RETICENT ABOUT
WHAT TYPES OF BUSINESS ARE
DOING WELL.
YOU SEE, THE ONLY REALLY
EXCITING THING ABOUT NORTEL,
BETWEEN YOU AND
ME, IS FIBRE OPTICS.
NOW, MAYBE WIRELESS, THEY'RE
INVESTING HEAVILY IN THAT.
THAT'S THE WIRELESS INTERNET,
SO YOU'LL BE ABLE TO WALK
AROUND, ACCESS THE INTERNET
FROM YOUR CELLPHONE.

Maureen says YES.

Andrew says BUT OTHERWISE, THEY'RE A
FAIRLY DREARY COMPANY.
THEY'RE SELLING STUFF INTO
TELEPHONE COMPANIES --
ERICSSON ARE THERE, NOKIA
ARE THERE, LUCENT ARE THERE.
THAT'S A FAIRLY BORING
COMMODITY BUSINESS.
SO HE WASN'T BREAKING OUT HOW
HIS FIBRE OPTIC REVENUE WAS.
HE WASN'T SEPARATING IT OUT
FROM THE REST OF THE COMPANY.
THAT'S WHAT INVESTORS
WANT TO KNOW ABOUT.
THEY'VE COME UNDER
A LOT OF PRESSURE.
THEY ARE IMPROVING THEIR
DISCLOSURE THIS WEEK.

Maureen says WONDERFUL.
THANK YOU FOR EXPLAINING THIS.

Andrew says THANKS, MAUREEN.
Maureen says THAT IS ANDREW BELL.
HE IS AN INVESTMENT REPORTER

Jennifer and Kevin look through notebooks in an office.

Jennifer says I THINK YOU'LL FIND
AVIATION IS QUITE A BUG.
FOR THOSE OF US WHO LOVE TO
FLY, AND FOR THOSE OF US WHO
ARE PILOTS AT HEART, AVIATION
IS JUST A WAY OF LIFE.
WELL, I'M ONE OF THE PILOTS
ON STAFF HERE AT THE COMPANY,
AS WELL AS THE PRESIDENT
OF THE COMPANY.
I SHARE A PRESIDENTIAL ROLE
WITH MY PARTNER, KEVIN SMITH.
AND WE RUN THE HELICOPTER
COMPANY, WHICH IS TORONTO'S
ONLY CHOPPER COMPANY
DEDICATED TO TOURISM.

A helicopter is pushed onto the tarmac.

Jennifer says OUR CLIENT BASE HERE AT THE
HELICOPTER COMPANY IS QUITE A
WIDE VARIETY OF PEOPLE WHO
COME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
SOME OF THEM ARE ON BUSINESS
TRIPS, SOME OF THEM ARE ON
LEISURE TRIPS.
EVERYONE IS COMING
FOR THE SAME REASON.
THEY'RE ALL COMING TO SEE THE
BEAUTIFUL CITY AND TO FLY IN
A CHOPPER WITH US.
A HELICOPTER PILOT STARTS BY
TRAINING FOR THE COMMERCIAL
PROGRAM, OR COMMERCIAL TICKET,
AND IT ENTAILS 100 HOURS
MINIMUM OF COCKPIT EXPERIENCE,
AND THEN FINAL EXAMINATIONS
AND WRITTEN EXAMINATIONS.
AND FROM THERE,
THE JOURNEY BEGINS.

A helicopter takes off and an aerial view of downtown Toronto is shown.

Jennifer says IT'S AN EXPENSIVE
UNDERTAKING, I HAVE TO ADMIT.
IT'S EASILY 35,000 DOLLARS-40,000 DOLLARS TO
JUST GET YOUR FIRST 100-HOUR
TICKET AND LICENSE AT HAND.
BUT WELL WORTH IT.
MY ADVICE TO ANYONE WHO WANTS
TO BECOME A COMMERCIAL,
FULL-TIME CAREER HELICOPTER
PILOT IS TO REALLY SAVE YOUR
MONEY BECAUSE IT COSTS QUITE
A BIT JUST TO GET STARTED.
AND TO KEEP YOURSELF
FOCUSSED ON YOUR GOAL
BECAUSE IT'S A GREAT CAREER.
FOR THE TIME BEING, I AM
INDEED THE ONLY FEMALE
HELICOPTER PILOT OPERATING
HERE IN DOWNTOWN TORONTO,
THAT'S TRUE.
BUT YOU KNOW, IT
DOESN'T REALLY MATTER.
IT'S BEEN AN ADVANTAGE AT
TIMES, BUT IT'S NEVER BEEN
A PROBLEM.
IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT
WOMEN KNOW THEY CAN DO WHATEVER
THEY WANT WITH THEIR LIVES.

A slate appears and it reads “Produced by Sound Venture Productions. In
association with TV Ontario and the Canada. Youth Employment Strategy.”


A blue slate appears and reads “Job matters” and above that www.tvo.org. And a
small white box shows an interchange of a hammer, computer, wrench, and police

the pages of a book, cooking, and pouring a glass of red wine. In animation, the

reappears in the studio.

Maureen says OKAY, WHATEVER.
NOW, LIVE FROM A BASEMENT
STUDIO SOMEWHERE IN TORONTO,
IT'S WHO WANTS TO WIN
A MORE TO LIFE MUG.
AS YOU CAN SEE, WE DON'T
HAVE THE FANCY REGIS PHILBIN,
LIGHTS GOING DOWN AND THE
MUSIC AND EVERYTHING,
BUT WE DO HAVE A LOT OF
THESE MUGS TO GIVE AWAY.
AND WE DO HAVE SOMEBODY
WHO KNOWS SOMETHING ABOUT
WRITING QUESTIONS.
DAN DILKS IS A
FREELANCE WRITER.
HE'S A TRIVIA WONK SUPREME.
HE ACTUALLY WAS THE HEAD
WRITER ON THE CANADIAN VERSION
OF WHO WANTS TO
BE A MILLIONAIRE.
PRETTY OFFICIAL, EH?
SO YOU CAN BE A CONTESTANT
ON OUR SHOW, AT LEAST.
WE'RE GOING TO
TAKE YOUR CALLS.
AND WE'VE GOT SOME QUESTIONS
HERE, A WHOLE PILE OF THEM
TO GIVE YOU.
AND IF YOU GET IT RIGHT,
THIS IS WHAT YOU GET.

A caption appears on the screen that shows two numbers.

Maureen says SO GIVE US A CALL IN TORONTO AT (416) 484-2727 IF YOUR CALLING LONG
DISTANCE ITS FREE DIAL 1-888-411-1234
CAN'T DO THIS ON
THE INTERNET TODAY.
SO IF YOU WANT TO
WIN, YOU HAVE TO DIAL.
MAIN PRIZE, OF
COURSE, IS THAT MUG.
BUT TWO OTHER LUCKY PEOPLE
WILL WIN A COPY OF
CANADIAN HISTORY FOR DUMMIES.
AND I'D SHOW IT TO YOU, BUT I
LEFT IT ON A TABLE OVER THERE.
CANADIAN HISTORY
FOR DUMMIES.
WE'LL BE STARTING THE
CONTEST IN JUST A MOMENT,
BUT FIRST, DAN,
WELCOME, HELLO.

Dan is in his thirties and has short buzzed brown hair and is clean-shaven. He
wears a long sleeved green shirt.

Dan says THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.
WHY DO YOU KNOW SO MUCH
USELESS INFORMATION?

The caption changes to “Dan Dilks. Trivia Expert.”

Dan says UM...
WHY DO I KNOW IT?
I DON'T KNOW.
I JUST GLEAN THINGS.
I PICK THINGS UP.
FUNNY ENOUGH, A LOT OF THE
PLACES I PICK THINGS UP ARE
ACTUALLY TELEVISION SHOWS.

Maureen says YOU WATCH A LOT OF TV?

Dan says I DO.
YEAH, I DON'T WATCH AS MUCH
AS I DID, BUT AS A KID,
THAT'S ALL I DID.
AND IT'S AMAZING WHAT I
LEARNED FROM BUGS BUNNY
THAT IS ACTUALLY TRUE.
THOSE KIND OF THINGS.
IT'S AMAZING WHAT YOU CAN
LEARN FROM THOSE KIND OF THINGS.
AND, YOU KNOW, ALL THOSE
SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK THINGS THEY
USED TO DO.
I JUST HAVE A LOT OF REALLY
USELESS INFORMATION IN MY
HEAD, I REALLY DO.

Maureen says HOW DID YOU COME TO BE THE
HEAD WRITER ON THE CANADIAN
VERSION ON THE SHOW?

Dan says WELL, I WORKED ON A COUPLE OF
OTHER GAME SHOWS IN THE PAST.
SO I CALLED, WHEN I FOUND OUT
THEY WERE DOING IT, I CALLED
ED ROBINSON AT CTV BECAUSE I
FOUND OUT HE WAS IN CHARGE OF
IT, AND I SAID,
ED, I'M THE GUY.

Maureen says I'M YOUR GUY.

Dan says THEN I INTERVIEWED FOR
IT, AND I GOT THE JOB.

Maureen says IF YOU CAN WRITE THE
QUESTIONS, DOES THAT MEAN
YOU'D MAKE A GOOD CONTESTANT?

Dan says NOT NECESSARILY.

Maureen says NO?

Dan says NO, I MEAN THE THING WITH
CONTESTANTS IS YOU HAVE TO BE
ABLE TO THINK QUICKLY.
AND I'M NOT SURE I CAN THINK
AS QUICKLY AS YOU NEED TO.
ESPECIALLY ON MILLIONAIRE,
WHERE THE FIRST QUESTION IS
WHAT THEY CALL THE FAST FINGER
QUESTION, WHERE YOU HAVE TO
ORDER EVERYTHING.

Maureen says OH YEA.

Dan says THAT'S VERY DIFFICULT TO DO.
AND IN FACT, THE PHONE WAS
THE WAY PEOPLE QUALIFIED.
SO YOU HAD TO CALL IN ON THE
TELEPHONE AND YOU QUALIFIED BY
DOING THE ORDERING
QUESTIONS ON THE PHONE.
AND I FOUND THAT EXCESSIVELY
DIFFICULT TO DO.
I PROBABLY NEVER WOULD
HAVE BEEN ABLE TO QUALIFY.
IT'S JUST -- I DON'T
PLAY VIDEO GAMES.
AND PEOPLE WHO DO DO MUCH
BETTER AT IT THAN I WOULD.

Maureen says YOU KNOW, WHEN WE WATCHED
THAT VERSION, I THOUGHT SOME
OF THE QUESTIONS
WERE REALLY TOUGH.
AND I RECALLED THERE WAS A
SKIT, I THINK IT WAS ON CBC
RADIO, AND THEY WERE DOING THE
CANADIAN VERSION OF
WHO WANTS TO BE,AND THE GUYS LISTENING
TO THE QUESTION, YOU DON'T
HAVE A MILLION
DOLLARS, DO YOU?
LIKE I WONDERED, DID THEY TELL
YOU TO MAKE THEM SO TOUGH
THAT THEY WOULDN'T HAVE
TO GIVE A MILLION AWAY?

Dan says AH, OH, NO, NO,-

Maureen says NO?

Dan says THEY DIDN'T TELL US TO DO THAT.
THERE'S A COUPLE
OF THINGS IN THERE.
WHEN YOU DO A SHOW LIKE THAT,
YOU HAVE TO SORT OF FIGURE
OUT WHAT THE KNOWLEDGE BASE
IS OF THE CONTESTANTS YOU GET.
NOW, WE ONLY DID TWO SHOWS,
AND WE DID THEM BACK-TO-BACK.
SO WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY SORT OF
LENGTH OF TIME TO SAY, OKAY,
WHAT DO WE THINK THE
KNOWLEDGE IS OF THE PEOPLE?
WE THOUGHT WE HAD A GOOD,
BROAD IDEA OF WHAT IT WAS.
I THINK SOME OF THE QUESTIONS
WERE HARDER THAN THEY SHOULD
HAVE BEEN.
BUT THE OTHER THING ABOUT IT
IS IT'S THE LEVEL THAT YOU
PLAY THEM AT.
AND ON MILLIONAIRE,
OF COURSE,-
Maureen says MOVE UP.
Dan says THEY GO FROM EASY TO
VERY DIFFICULT.
AND THERE WERE A NUMBER OF
CASES ALONG THE WAY WHERE
QUESTIONS ORIGINALLY, WE SAID
WE SHOULD PLAY THEM HIGHER,
BUT THEY WERE CHANGED
ALONG THE WAY.
BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THINGS
HAPPEN, AND PEOPLE THINK, NO,
I THINK THAT'S A LOT EASIER,
AND THAT KIND OF THING.

Maureen says WELL, WE'VE GOT QUESTIONS, I
DON'T KNOW WHETHER THEY GET
HARDER AS WE GO ALONG THIS
AFTERNOON, BUT I THINK YOU'LL
STRUGGLE WITH SOME, AND
OTHERS YOU'LL FIND EASY.
I HOPE YOU'LL PLAY ALONG WITH
US FOR WHO WANTS TO WIN A
MORE TO LIFE MUG.
MY GUEST IS DAN DILKS.
HE WAS THE HEAD WRITER ON
THE CANADIAN VERSION OF
WHO WANTS TO BE
A MILLIONAIRE.
HERE ARE THE NUMBERS
IF YOU'D LIKE TO PLAY(416)484-2727. LONG DISTANCE 1-888-4111-1234.
WHAT ARE THE OTHER RULES?
WE DON'T HAVE ANY LIFELINES,
MAYBE DAN WILL BE YOUR
LIFELINE, IF HE CAN
GIVE YOU A LITTLE HINT.
AND WE'RE GOING TO DO IT THE
WAY WE USUALLY DO IT ON
MORE TO LIFE.
WE'LL HAVE A QUESTION, IF THE
FIRST CALLER DOESN'T GET IT,
WE'LL GO ON TO ANOTHER TWO
CALLERS WITH THE SAME QUESTION.
IF NOBODY GETS IT AFTER THREE,
WE GIVE OUT THE ANSWER,
AND THEN WE'LL MOVE ON
TO A NEW QUESTION.
OKAY, SOUND GOOD?
I HAVE ONE FOR YOU JUST
BEFORE WE GO TO CALLERS.
THIS IS ONE FOR YOU TO
TRY, IF I CAN FIND IT.

Dan says OKAY.

Maureen says WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING IS NOT A CHARACTER ON POLKADOT SHORTS?

Dan says OH NO.

Maureen says A BEAR, A FIDDLE,
MARIGOLD OR POLKAROO.

Dan says IT'S GOT TO BE A FIDDLE.

Maureen says THAT'S RIGHT.
DID YOU WATCH POLKA
DOT DOOR AS A KID?
YOU CAN KEEP THAT MUG ON
THE TABLE IN FRONT OF YOU.

Dan says THAT WAS A REASONING
QUESTION FOR ME.
BECAUSE I KNEW THE THREE
I COULD REASON OUT.

Maureen says BUT WHY DID YOU KNOW THEM?
THE BEAR AND MARIGOLD.

Dan says I GUESS I HAVE SEEN
POLKA DOT DOOR
ABSOLUTELY.

Maureen says YOU HAVE SEEN. ABSOLUTELY.

Dan says I HAVE TO SAY THAT.

Maureen says YEAH, OR YOU'RE
NOT COMING BACK.
ALRIGHT MARY IS IN MISSISSAUGA.
HI, MARY.

Mary says HI.

Maureen says ALL RIGHT, YOU'RE
OUR FIRST CONTESTANT.
ARE YOU READY
FOR THE QUESTION?

Mary says OKAY.

Maureen says OKAY.
IN WHAT TYPE OF BUILDING IS
ICE HOCKEY NORMALLY PLAYED?
AN ARENA, A STADIUM, A
VELODROME OR A CRACKER FACTORY?

Mary says AN ARENA.

Maureen says THAT'S YOUR FINAL
ANSWER AND IT'S RIGHT.
VERY GOOD.
THAT WASN'T THAT
HARD, WAS IT?

Mary says NO, IT WASN'T.

Maureen says YOU'RE JUST LUCKY
YOU GOT THROUGH FIRST.
CONGRATULATIONS.

Mary says THANKS.

Maureen says OKAY, BYE.
MARY WINS A MORE
TO LIFEMUG.
THAT WAS EASY.

Dan says THAT'S HOW YOU'RE
SUPPOSED TO START.
SO THE LITTLE KIDS WATCHING
THE SHOW AT HOME WITH THEIR
PARENTS WILL ALSO BE
ABLE TO ANSWER THEM.

Maureen says WHAT DO YOU DO
IN A VELODROME?

Dan says I THINK THAT'S FOR THE-

Maureen says FOR THE BICYCLE?

Dan says YEAH.

Maureen says THAT'S ALL YOU
DO IN A VELODROME.

Dan says I THINK SO.I THINK THAT'S ALL
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO.

Maureen says SUPPOSED TO DO.ALL RIGHT, LET'S GO
TO STEVE IN TORONTO.
HI, STEVE.

Steve says HELLO.
HI, DAN.
HI, PAMELA.

Maureen says SHE'S NOT HERE.

Steve says YOU'RE DOING A GREAT JOB.
YOU'RE DOING A BETTER JOB.

Maureen says I'M WEARING MY REGIS
PHILBIN SUIT TODAY, THOUGH.
ALRIGHT ARE YOU READY?

Steve says GO AHEAD.

Maureen says OKAY, THE ACRONYM
ESP STANDS FOR WHAT?

Steve says EXTRASENSORY PERCEPTION.

Maureen says OKAY, YOU'RE REALLY BRIGHT,
AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN WAIT FOR
YOUR FOUR CHOICES.
THAT'S GOOD.
EXTRASENSORY PERCEPTION.
THAT'S RIGHT.
SOME OF THE OTHER ONES WE HAD
WERE EAT SUPPER PROMPTLY AND
ELIMINATE SMOKING PARLOURS.
THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I SEE
THEY TRY TO DO ON MILLIONAIRE,
IS HAVE AT LEAST ONE
THAT'S SORT OF GOOFY.

Dan says YEAH, IN THE EARLY QUESTIONS,
THE IDEA IS TO HAVE ONE OF
THE ANSWERS THAT'S SORT OF
A GOOFY, SUPPOSED TO BE
AMUSING QUESTION.
I'M NEVER SURE WHETHER
IT'S AMUSING OR NOT.

Maureen says YEA YOU KNOW, SO THEY ARE MOSTLY AMUSING.SO STEVE WINS A MUG, AS
WELL.
CONGRATULATIONS, STEVE.
WHEN YOU'RE RESEARCHING
THOUGH, THOSE QUESTIONS, AND
YOU HAVE TO COME UP WITH THE
FOUR ANSWERS, WHERE DO YOU TRY
TO GO WITH THE FOUR ANSWERS?
ONE'S RIGHT, ARE THE OTHER
THREE SUPPOSED TO BE, WELL,
YEAH, COULD HAVE
BEEN THAT ONE.

Dan says YEAH.
I MEAN, IT DEPENDS ON THE
QUESTION, THE LEVEL, AND THAT
KIND OF THING.
BUT A LOT OF IT IS YOU'RE
SUPPOSED TO TRY AND FIND
ANSWERS THAT
COULD BE POSSIBLE.
SO THAT'S THE IDEA, IS TO
REALLY -- SO IF SOMEBODY DOES
GET THE ANSWER, THEY
HAVE TO KNOW THE ANSWER.
THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE ON
MILLIONAIRE THAN ON MANY
GAME SHOWS.
THERE'S A BIG DIFFERENCE.

Maureen says WHY IS IT?

Dan says WELL BECAUSE ON MOST GAME
SHOWS, THEY LEAD YOU
TO AN ANSWER.
LIKE ON JEOPARDY,FOR INSTANCE, THEY WILL WRITE THE
QUESTION IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT
WILL SAY -- I CAN'T EVEN THINK
OF IT, BUT THEY WILL GIVE YOU
HINTS IN THE QUESTION, AND
THEN YOU COME UP
WITH THE ANSWER.
WHEREAS IN MILLIONAIRE,
THERE'S NO HINTS REALLY.
IT'S JUST A QUESTION, WHICH
IS A FLAT OUT QUESTION,
HERE'S THE QUESTION.
AND IT DOESN'T OFTEN HAVE A
LOT OF QUALIFIERS IN IT THAT
WOULD LEAD YOU TO THE ANSWER.

Maureen says ALTHOUGH, HAVING THE
MULTIPLE CHOICE-

Dan says THAT DOES HELP. THAT ABSOLUTELY DOES.


Maureen says AS ALEX TREBEK POINTS OUT.
LIFE ISN'T ABOUT
MULTIPLE CHOICE.

Dan says ABSOLUTELY, ABSOLUTELY. AND THAT DOES HELP.
AND THAT'S WHAT SHOULD
LEAD YOU TO THE ANSWER.
BY LOOKING AT THE OTHER
ANSWERS, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO
SAY, AS IN YOUR QUESTION YOU
GAVE ME, YOU KNOW, THE FOUR
ANSWERS, THE ONE THAT DOESN'T
BELONG IS THE ONE ANSWER.
SO IT SHOULD DO IT THAT WAY.

Maureen says ALL RIGHT.
LET'S SEE IF OUR NEXT
CONTESTANT, DANIEL,
KNOWS THIS ANSWER.
HI, DANIEL.

Daniel says HI.

Maureen says HI.
DANIEL, HERE'S YOUR
QUESTION, OKAY?

Daniel says OKAY.

Maureen says WHO IS CURRENTLY ONTARIO'S
LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR.

Daniel says SORRY, CAN YOU
REPEAT THE QUESTION?

Maureen says YES.
THE QUESTION IS WHO IS
CURRENTLY ONTARIO'S
LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR.
HERE ARE YOUR FOUR CHOICES:
MIKE HARRIS, HILARY WESTON,
LINCOLN ALEXANDER,
OR POLKAROO?

Daniel says CAN I USE A LIFELINE?
WELL, IT WOULD BE DAN.
DAN, DO YOU HAVE ANY...?

Dan says WELL, THE HINT I
WOULD GIVE HIM IS...
HMM...

Maureen says WE COULD DO 50-50 ON THIS.

Dan says THERE YOU GO.
DO 50-50.

Maureen says SO WE'LL TAKE OUT MIKE
HARRIS AND POLKAROO.
SO IS IT HILARY WESTON
OR LINCOLN ALEXANDER?

Daniel says IT WOULD BE HILARY WESTON.

Maureen says THAT'S RIGHT.
NOW, WHAT WAS CONFUSING
YOU AT THE BEGINNING?

Daniel says BECAUSE ONE OF THE MAN'S
NAME, I JUST DON'T KNOW
WHO THAT MAN WAS.

Maureen says LINCOLN ALEXANDER.

Daniel says YEAH.
HE WAS THE PREVIOUS
LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR.

Daniel says I'M FROM QUEBEC, SO...

Maureen says OH, WELL, THAT'S
ALL RIGHT.
YOU WIN AMORE TO
LIFE MUG ANYWAY.
THANKS FOR PLAYING, DANIEL.
OKAY, BYE-BYE.
WE'VE GOT LUCILLE
IN THUNDER BAY.
SHOULD WE JUST KEEP GOING
AND GO WITH LUCILLE?
HI, LUCILLE.

Lucille says HI.
HI, YOU READY?

Lucille says YEAH.

Maureen says OKAY.
BUILDING PLANS ARE NORMALLY
DRAWN UP AS WHAT, BROWN --
EXCUSE ME, BROWN PRINTS,
BLUEPRINTS, GREEN PRINTS,
OR FOOTPRINTS?

Lucille says IT'S BLUEPRINTS.

Maureen says THAT'S RIGHT.
THAT'S A 100 DOLLAR QUESTION,
ISN'T IT, KIND OF?

Lucille says IT WAS AN EASY
ONE, THANK GOODNESS.

Maureen says NORMALLY, ON THIS SHOW, WHEN
WE DO SOME HISTORY, AND WE'LL
GET INTO HISTORY,
THAT'S TOUGH FOR PEOPLE.

Dan says RIGHT.

Maureen says THAT IS TOUGH.
ARE YOU A STUDENT
OF CANADIAN HISTORY?
DID YOU ENJOY
CANADIAN HISTORY?

Dan says YEAH, I DID.
ACTUALLY, THAT'S ONE OF THE
SUBJECTS I KNOW REALLY WELL.
HISTORY IN GENERAL, BUT
CANADIAN HISTORY, YEAH,
REALLY WELL.
IT'S ONE OF MY -- IT
JUST ALWAYS HAS BEEN.
IT WAS AN INTEREST WHEN I WAS
A KID FROM THE EARLIEST TIMES.
I ACTUALLY USED TO READ NOVELS
ABOUT SAMUEL CHAMPLAIN.

Maureen says THAT IS STRANGE.

Dan says STRANGE AND SHOULDN'T HAPPEN.

Maureen says I KNOW IT'S PLUGGING ANOTHER
NETWORK, BUT WHAT DO YOU
THINK OF THE CBC'S,
A PEOPLE'S HISTORY.
HAVE YOU SEEN ANY
EPISODES SO FAR?

Dan says I SAW ABOUT TEN
MINUTES OF IT.

Maureen says YOU DIDN'T LIKE IT?

Dan says I FOUND IT -- I MEAN, I
THINK IT'LL GET BETTER.
NO, IT'S VERY
EARNEST, I WOULD SAY.

Maureen says WELL, YEAH.

Dan says I MEAN, IT'LL BE FINE.
I THINK IT'LL BE FINE.

Maureen says AS YOU SAID TO ME BEFORE THE
SHOW WENT ON, YOU CAN GET
INTO A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH
CERTAIN STUDENTS OF CANADIAN
HISTORY BY TAKING
A CERTAIN STAND.
I GET THE IMPRESSION THEY ARE
TRYING TO DO THIS WITH AS
LITTLE TROUBLE AS POSSIBLE.

Dan says YEAH, I THINK THEY ARE.
I THINK THEY ARE REALLY TRYING
TO COVER ALL THE BASES, AND
BE VERY POLITICALLY CORRECT,
AND ALL THAT KIND OF STUFF.

Maureen says VERY SENSITIVE
TO THINGS, YEAH.
ALL RIGHT, LET'S GO
TO LAURIE IN FENWICK.
HI, LAURIE.

Laurie says HELLO.

Maureen says READY FOR YOUR QUESTION?

Laurie says YES.

Maureen says WE MIGHT FINALLY
GET SOMEBODY ON ONE.
WHAT TV HOST IS FAMOUS FOR
THE PHRASE “KEEP YOUR STICK
ON THE ICE”?
IS IT DON CHERRY, TOM GREEN,
RED FISHER, OR RED GREEN?

Laurie says RED GREEN.

Maureen says YEAH.
DO YOU WATCH
THE RED GREEN SHOW?

Laurie says MY SON LOVES
THE RED GREEN SHOW.
Maureen says OKAY, SO YOU'RE
RIGHT IN THERE.
KEEP YOUR STICK ON THE ICE.
I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT RED
FISHER OR DON CHERRY.

Dan says THAT'S ONE OF THOSE QUESTIONS
YOU ALWAYS WONDER ABOUT
BECAUSE IT'S A TV QUESTION,
AND, YOU KNOW, I MEAN,
RED GREEN IS FAIRLY WELL KNOWN
IN CANADA, BUT I THINK IT
APPEALS TO MEN MORE
THAN IT DOES WOMEN.

Maureen says RIGHT.

Dan says SO YOU DON'T EVER QUITE KNOW
HOW SOMEBODY IS GOING TO DO
ON A QUESTION LIKE THAT.

Maureen says LAURIE'S LUCKY SHE JUST
HAPPENS TO BE WATCHING ALONG
WITH HER SON.
ALL RIGHT, LAURIE,
MORE TOLIFE
MUG COMING TO YOU.
IT'S A GOOD THING WE
HAVE A LOT OF THEM.
RUBY IS IN BRAMPTON.
HI, RUBY.

Ruby says HI.

Maureen says HI, HOW ARE YOU?

Ruby says I'M JUST FINE, THANK YOU.
HOW ARE YOU?

Maureen says FINE, THANKS.
OKAY, BIT OF RECENT HISTORY
HERE WITH YOUR QUESTION, OKAY?
WHAT DID A PROTESTOR ATTACK
CANADIAN ALLIANCE PARTY
LEADER STOCKWELL DAY
WITH ON OCTOBER 5th, 2000?
WAS IT A BANANA CREAM PIE,
CHOCOLATE MILK, VANILLA ICE
CREAM, OR PINK COTTON CANDY?

Ruby says IT WAS CHOCOLATE MILK.

Maureen says THAT'S RIGHT.
DID YOU SEE THAT
ON TELEVISION?

Ruby says YES.

Maureen says ON THE NEWS?

Ruby says YES.
HE TOOK IT WELL,
DIDN'T YOU THINK?

Ruby says HE DID.

Maureen says HE DID.
THANKS VERY MUCH.

Dan says WE HAD A SIMILAR QUESTION TO
THAT ON THE CANADIAN VERSION
OF MILLIONAIRE,WHICH WAS ABOUT JEAN CHRETIEN BEING
HIT BY THE PIE.
I SAW THAT ONE.
AND CTV APPARENTLY GOT A LOT
OF COMPLAINTS FROM PEOPLE
ABOUT US USING THAT QUESTION.

Maureen says BECAUSE YOU'RE PROMOTING...?

Dan says I THINK SOME OF THE
COMPLAINTS SEEMED TO BE ABOUT
THE FACT THE PRIME MINISTER
HAS A CERTAIN STATURE,
AND WE SHOULDN'T BE
MAKING FUN OF HIM.
I DIDN'T THINK WE WERE
MAKING FUN OF HIM.
I THOUGHT THE QUESTION WAS
WRITTEN IN SUCH A WAY,
IT WAS A CURRENT EVENTS
KIND OF QUESTION.

Maureen says IT WAS A TOUGH QUESTION.DO YOU REMEMBER THE
QUESTION AND THE FOUR.
CAN YOU TELL THE PEOPLE?

Dan says THE QUESTION WAS WHAT WAS
WRITTEN ON THE BOTTOM OF THE
PIE THAT WAS THROWN AT
THE PRIME MINISTER
IN CHARLOTTETOWN?
AND I THINK THE CHOICES
WERE PRIME MINISTER PIE...
OH, I CAN'T REMEMBER.

Maureen says ASSOCIATION.
SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

Dan says SOMETHING LIKE THAT.PIE MINISTER.

Maureen says IT WASN'T PRINCE EDWARD PIE?
Dan says AND PRINCE EDWARD PIE
OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

Maureen says YEA, AND THE ANSWER WAS?

Dan says PIE MINISTER.

Maureen says PIE MINISTER.
AND THAT WAS WRITTEN ON
THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE?

Dan says IT WAS.
AND THE REASON WE USED IT WAS
BECAUSE IT WAS IN THE PICTURE
THAT WAS ON THE FRONT
OF ALL THE NEWSPAPERS.
IT WAS RIGHT THERE.
IT WAS RIGHT THERE.
IT SAID PIE MINISTER.
SO THAT'S WHY WE THOUGHT
IT WAS A GOOD QUESTION.

Maureen says PRETTY OBSERVANT.

Dan says IT'S NOT AN EASY QUESTION.
YOU HAVE TO KNOW
SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Maureen says YEAH, IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, AND
YOU MOSTLY READ HEADLINES,
YOU WOULD HAVE MISSED
THAT BIT OF INFORMATION.
OKAY, BOJOHN IS IN HAMILTON.
HI, BOJOHN.

Bojohn says HI.
HOW ARE YOU?

Maureen says FINE, THANKS.

Bojohn says I WATCH YOUR SHOW EVERY DAY.
IT'S A GREAT SHOW.

Maureen says THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I HOPE YOU WIN.
HERE'S YOUR QUESTION.
WHAT HERO OF LITERATURE, COMIC
BOOKS AND MOVIES WAS FAMOUS
FOR WEARING A LOIN CLOTH?
WAS IT BUCK ROGERS, SUPERMAN,
TARZAN, OR THE LONE RANGER?

Bojohn says THAT'S A LITTLE BIT TOUGH.
CAN I GET SOME HELP?

Maureen says OKAY, DO YOU KNOW
WHAT A LOIN CLOTH IS?

Bojohn says I'M NOT REALLY SURE.

Maureen says OKAY.
DAN, HELP HIM OUT WITH
THE LOIN CLOTH THING.

Dan says WELL, A LOIN CLOTH IS
BASICALLY LIKE A TOWEL.
IT'S VERY SKIMPY.
YOU WEAR IT AROUND YOUR WAIST.

Maureen says YES.
TO COVER CERTAIN
AREAS OF MALE ANATOMY.

Dan says THERE YOU GO.

Maureen says OKAY, SO GIVEN THE LOIN CLOTH
COVERS CERTAIN AREAS OF MALE
ANATOMY, WHICH OF THOSE GUYS
DO YOU THINK WOULD WEAR ONE?

Bojohn I THINK ,I'M JUST GUESSING.
I DON'T KNOW HOW
GOOD I'M GOING TO DO.
TARZAN?

Maureen says THAT'S RIGHT.
Bojohn says IS IT RIGHT?
Maureen says YEA.

Bojohn says DO I WIN ANYTHING?

Maureen says OH YEAH, YOU WIN A MUG.

Bojohn says OH, DID I?
OH, THANKS.

Maureen says YOU WIN A MUG.
AND YOU MIGHT GO IN
THE DRAW FOR THE BOOK.
THE BOOK ON CANADIAN HISTORY,
THAT'S OVER THERE,
THAT I CAN'T SHOW YOU.
OKAY?
SO WE'LL PUT YOU
IN THERE, BOJOHN.
THANKS A LOT.

Bojohn says OKAY, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Maureen says ALL RIGHTY, BYE-BYE.
WERE YOU A BIG FAN OF
COMIC BOOKS AS A KID, TOO?

Dan says NO.
YOU DIDN'T READ COMIC BOOKS?
I REALLY DIDN'T READ -- I
MEAN, I CAN REMEMBER READING
ARCHIE COMICS A LITTLE
BIT, BUT NOT REALLY, NO.
I HAVE TO SAY, TV IS WHERE
I SPENT MOST OF MY LIFE.

Maureen says SO YOU MUST HAVE WATCHED
BUCK ROGERS, LONE RANGER,
SUPERMAN, ALL THAT
KIND OF STUFF?

Dan says YEAH, ALL THOSE
KIND OF THINGS, SURE.

Maureen says ALL RIGHT.
WE'VE GOT ANOTHER CONTESTANT
ON THE LINE FROM LONDON.
IT'S MIKE.
HI, MIKE.

Mike says HI.

Maureen says HI, YOU READY TO PLAY?

Mike says YEAH.

Maureen says DO YOU LIKE SPORTS?

Mike says UM... NAH.
BETTER ON HISTORICAL
PERSONALITIES,
BUT GO AHEAD, WHATEVER.

Maureen says WELL -- OH YEAH, I DO, I DO.
OKAY, ALL RIGHT, HERE YOU GO.
IT'S A LITTLE HARDER, BUT...
WHO DEVISED THE CALENDAR THAT
IS IN OFFICIAL USE BY THE
ONTARIO GOVERNMENT TODAY?
WAS IT NICOLAUS COPERNICUS,
JULIUS CAESAR, POPE GREGORY
XIII, OR SAINT MIKE THE PC?

Mike says I'M HAVING A PROBLEM
WITH MY PHONE, I GUESS.
CAN YOU RUN THROUGH
THOSE AGAIN?

Maureen says OKAY.
YOU HEARD THE
QUESTION, THOUGH?
THE CALENDAR THAT IS IN
OFFICIAL USE BY THE ONTARIO
GOVERNMENT TODAY, WAS
IT DEVISED BY NICOLAUS
COPERNICUS, JULIUS CAESAR,
POPE GREGORY XIII,
OR St. MIKE THE PC?

Mike says OKAY, POPE GREGORY. POPE GREGORY XIII.

Maureen says POPE GREGORY XIII?
AND WHY DO YOU THINK IT WAS
HIM AND NOT JULIUS CAESAR?

Mike says BECAUSE I SEE REFERENCES ALL
THE TIME TO THE GREGORIAN --
WAIT A MINUTE, I'M THINKING
OF GREGORIAN CHANT.
OH, MY GOD, I'M GOING OVER- I'AM CROSSING
OVER INTO MUSIC.

Maureen says I'VE CONFUSED YOU.

Dan says STICK WITH YOUR FIRST ANSWER.

Maureen says IS THAT SMART TO DO, DAN?

Dan says YES.
NEVER SECOND GUESS YOURSELF.

Maureen says IS THAT RIGHT?

Dan says I WOULD SAY.

Maureen says OKAY, MIKE, IS YOUR FINAL
ANSWER POPE GREGORY THEN?

Mike says NO, JULIUS CAESAR.

Maureen says ALRGHT IT'S WRONG.
SO WE'LL HAVE TO BRING IT
TO A NEXT CALLER, OKAY MIKE?

Mike says OKAY.

Maureen says ALL RIGHT.
YOU WATCH AND SEE.
SORRY, WHO WAS THAT, CATHY?
RODEL IS NEXT.
HI, RODEL.

Rodel says HI.
DID YOU HEAR THE QUESTION?
DO YOU WANT IT AGAIN?

Rodel says NO, I HEARD THE QUESTION.

Maureen says OKAY, WHAT'S THE ANSWER?

Rodel says POPE GREGORY?

Maureen says YEAH, THAT IS THE ANSWER.
POOR MIKE.

Dan says I GAVE HIM IT, TOO.
I TOLD HIM TO STICK
WITH HIS ANSWER.

Maureen says YOU SAID STICK WITH
YOUR FIRST INSTINCT.
DID YOU KNOW THAT, RODEL, WHEN
YOU HEARD IT THE FIRST TIME?

ROdel says NO, I KIND OF GOT
IT FROM THE WAY...NO KIDDING.

Maureen says NO KIDDING.
I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING -- IS
THERE A GREGORIAN CALENDAR?
GREGORIAN CALENDAR.
THAT'S THE CALENDAR THE
CURRENT ONE WE USE IS BASED ON,
THE GREGORIAN CALENDAR.
IT HAS SOME MODIFICATIONS
TO IT, BUT IT'S THE
GREGORIAN CALENDAR.
BEFORE THAT, THE JULIAN
CALENDAR WAS USED, WHICH WAS
DEVISED BY JULIUS CAESAR.

Maureen says BUT WHY DID WE, IN THE
QUESTION SAY -- I WONDER WHY
WE PUT THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT
BECAUSE SURELY EVERYBODY USES
THIS CALENDAR.

Dan says WELL KNOW, IF WE WERE TO SAY, THE
CALENDAR THAT'S IN CURRENT
USE TODAY, WELL, THERE
ARE LOTS OF CALENDARS.
THE JEWISH CALENDAR IS
STILL IN USE, BUT IT'S NOT
NECESSARILY IN USE
IN A BUSINESS SENSE.

Maureen says EVERYWHERE.

Dan says SO THE QUALIFYER HAS TO- WE HAVE TO REALLY PEG THAT
QUESTION, AND SAY, WHAT IS IT
WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.
THAT'S WHERE YOU CAN GET INTO
TROUBLE WITH THESE THINGS.

Maureen says AND COPERNICUS, DOESN'T HE
HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH MATH?

Dan says COPERNICUS, HE WAS AN
ASTRONOMER AND SCIENTIST.

Maureen says THERE YOU GO.
WELL, MIKE WANTED HISTORY,
SO I GAVE IT TO HIM.
ALL RIGHT, RODEL, YOU WIN
THE MORE TO LIFE MUG.
CONGRATULATIONS.
NITEN IS IN TORONTO.
HELLO.

Niten says HELLO.
ARE YOU ALL SET
FOR YOUR QUESTION?

Niten YES I AM.
ACTUALLY, BEFORE THAT, CAN
I JUST MAKE A REALLY QUICK
COMMENT ON THE CANADIAN
MILLIONAIRE SHOW?

Maureen says YEAH.

Niten says I JUST FELT BECAUSE THE
AMERICAN MEDIA HAD SUCH LARGE
INFLUENCE ON CANADIANS, THAT
THE AMERICAN VERSION WAS JUST
A LOT EASIER.
I JUST THOUGHT THE CANADIAN
VERSION WAS VERY DIFFICULT
COMPARED TO THE AMERICAN ONE.

Dan says I DON'T DISAGREE WITH YOU.
WE HAD THESE CONVERSATIONS,
ESPECIALLY AFTER THE SHOW,
THAT BECAUSE WE HAD 50 PERCENT
CANADIAN CONTENT, I ALWAYS
FELT THAT WAS A LITTLE MUCH.
SHOWS I'D WORKED ON BEFORE
WE HAD DONE SORT OF
30 PERCENT CANADIAN.
BUT THAT WAS THE
CALL CTV WANTED.
THEY WANTED A REAL CANADIAN
VERSION OF THE SHOW, AND IT
DOES MAKE IT A LITTLE
BIT MORE DIFFICULT.
I THINK THAT'S TRUE.

Maureen says MIKE, SORRY, NITEN, DO YOU
FIND WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING ALONG
WITH REGIS THAT YOU GET
FAIRLY FAR IN THE MONEY?

Niten says OH, DEFINITELY.
I ALWAYS MAKE IT
PAST THE 32,000.

Maureen says YEAH, YOU DO?
AND I THINK THE CANADIAN
ONE, DID ANYONE WIN PAST --
I THINK ONE PERSON WON 64.

Dan says 64, YEAH, THAT WAS THE
MOST THAT SOMEBODY WON.
YEAH, I MEAN --

Maureen says WHICH IS 32 AMERICAN, RIGHT?
[laughing]
ISN'T THAT HOW IT WORKS?

Dan says SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

Maureen says DO YOU THINK -- YOU WERE
THERE FROM THE INCEPTION, DO
YOU REALLY THINK THEY THOUGHT
THEY WERE GOING TO HAVE TO
GIVE AWAY A MILLION DOLLARS?
I GUESS THEY HAD IT SET ASIDE.

Dan says I WASN'T IN ON THOSE
CONVERSATIONS, SO I CAN'T-

Maureen says YOUR NOT REALLY UP THERE.

Dan says REALLY SAY.
I HOPED THAT WE WOULD.
I REALLY DID. AND I KNOW ALL THE PEOPLE THAT
WORKED AS WRITERS ON THE SHOW
AND RESEARCHERS, WE REALLY
HOPED SOMEBODY WOULD WIN A
MILLION DOLLARS.
THAT WOULD, YOU KNOW HAVE REALLY MADE
US HAPPY IF SOMEBODY HAD.
IT DIDN'T TURN OUT THAT WAY.

Maureen says WELL, NITEN, LET'S SEE
IF YOU KNOW THIS ONE.
READY?

Niten says OKAY.

Maureen says WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING
CITIES HAS NEVER HAD A
CANADIAN FOOTBALL
LEAGUE FRANCHISE?
OKAY, ONE OF THE FOLLOWING
CITIES NEVER HAD A CANADIAN
FOOTBALL LEAGUE FRANCHISE.
WAS IT HALIFAX, SHREVEPORT,
SAN ANTONIO OR SACRAMENTO?

Niten says ARE THEY CANADIAN CITIES?

Maureen says I DIDN'T SAY THEY
WERE CANADIAN CITIES.
WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING CITIES,
BUT THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE
WAS CANADIAN.

Dan says YEAH, THE CANADIAN FOOTBALL
LEAGUE EXPANDED INTO THE
UNITED STATES FOR A WHILE,
SO THAT'S WHY YOU'VE GOT
AMERICAN CITIES IN HERE.

Niten says SEE, THERE YOU GO.
NOW WHO ACTUALLY WATCHES CFL?
[laughing]

Niten says OKAY, I'D HAVE TO SAY --
STEVE PAIKIN FOR ONE.
I THINK I'M GUESSING HERE.
I'LL SAY SHREVEPORT.

Maureen says SHREVEPORT?
SORRY, THAT'S WRONG, NITEN.
THANKS FOR PLAYING, THOUGH.

Niten says OKAY, THANKS.

Maureen says JIM IS NEXT.
HE'S IN OSHAWA.
I'LL GIVE HIM THE
SAME QUESTION.
HI, JIM.
HI, HOW ARE YOU?

Jim says FINE, THANKS.

Maureen says WHICH OF THOSE CITIES
NEVER HAD A CFL FRANCHISE?

Jim says I'VE GOT TO HEAR THEM AGAIN.
I REALLY DON'T KNOW THOUGH.

Maureen says OKAY, HALIFAX, SHREVEPORT,
SAN ANTONIO, OR SACRAMENTO?
WE KNOW IT'S NOT SHREVEPORT
BECAUSE THAT WAS NITEN'S
ANSWER, AND IT'S WRONG.

Jim says I'LL SAY SAN ANTONIO.

Maureen says THAT'S WRONG, TOO.

Jim says OKAY.

Maureen says SORRY.

Jim says THAT'S OKAY.

Maureen says OKAY, BYE, JIM.
I THOUGHT THIS WAS GOING
TO BE A HARD QUESTION.
THIS IS A TOUGHIE, VERY GOOD.
I ONLY HAPPEN TO KNOW THIS
BECAUSE AT THE TIME THEY
EXPANDED INTO THE STATES I
WAS DOING A LOT OF SHOWS
AROUND THIS.
IT WAS A BIG TOPIC.

Dan says ABSOLUTELY.

Maureen says THERE WAS A LOT OF DISCUSSION
ABOUT WHETHER THEY SHOULD.
OKAY, BRIAN'S IN CHATHAM.
HI, BRIAN.

Brian says HOW ARE YOU DOING?

Maureen says FINE, THANKS.
WE'RE BASICALLY DOWN TO
HALIFAX AND SACRAMENTO.

Brian says AND IT'S FOR WHAT, FOOTBALL?

Maureen says FOOTBALL.
ONE OF THOSE CITIES NEVER
HAD A CFL LEAGUE FRANCHISE.
WHICH ONE WAS IT?

Brian says OH, GOOD QUESTION.
I NEVER FOLLOW FOOTBALL.
I WOULD HAVE TO SAY HALIFAX.

Maureen says THAT WOULD BE RIGHT, BRIAN.
THAT WOULD BE RIGHT.
FOUR CITIES, THREE ARE
AMERICAN, ONE'S CANADIAN,
THE THREE AMERICAN
CITIES HAD A CFL.

Dan says HAD A CFL AND THAT CANADIAN ONE DIDN'T.
IT'S SORT OF AN
INTERESTING QUESTION.
IT IS ACTUALLY AN INTERESTING
PIECE OF INFORMATION, THAT
HALIFAX WOULDN'T HAVE HAD ONE.

Maureen says SO THAT WAS VERY TRICKY FOR
PEOPLE WHO DON'T FOLLOW CFL.
ALRIGHT, BRIAN,
CONGRATULATIONS.
WE'LL BE SENDING YOU
THE MORE TO LIFE MUG.
THANKS FOR PLAYING.
NEXT IS KEVIN ANNE, DID
YOU SAY, IN KITCHENER?
HI.
Kevin says HELLO.

Maureen says HI.
HOW ARE YOU?

Kevin says FINE, THANK YOU.

Maureen says ALL RIGHT, ARE
YOU READY FOR THIS?

Kevin says I HOPE SO.

Maureen says THIS IS SORT OF RECENT
POP CULTURE QUESTION.
WHAT CAR MANUFACTURER USES
THE ADVERTISING SLOGAN, ZOOM,
ZOOM, ZOOM, OR ZOOM, ZOOM,
ZOOM, AS MY KIDS WOULD SAY.
IS IT FORD, NISSAN,
MAZDA OR BMW?

Kevin says NISSAN.

Maureen says SORRY, THAT'S NOT RIGHT.
SORRY.

Kevin says OKAY.

Maureen says THANKS FOR PLAYING, THOUGH.
OKAY.
THIS IS PLAYING ALL OVER MOVIE
THEATRES AS WELL AS --

Dan says IT'S ALL OVER TV.

Maureen says AND THE SONG IS BIG NOW.
MY KIDS ARE TRYING TO DOWNLOAD
IT OFF MP3 OR SOMETHING.

Dan says REALLY?

Maureen says YEAH.
DAN IN WELLINGTON IS NEXT.
HI, DAN.

Dan from Wellington says HI.

Maureen says THE ADVERTISING SLOGAN,
ZOOM, ZOOM, ZOOM, WHICH CAR
MANUFACTURER USES THAT?
FORD, MAZDA, OR BMW?
Dan from Wellington says MAZDA.

Maureen says IT IS MAZDA.
CONGRATULATIONS.
YOU'VE SEEN THE COMMERCIAL?

Dan from Wellingon says YES, I HAVE.

Maureen says CAN'T MISS IT, EH?
Dan from Wellington says THAT'S RIGHT.

Maureen says THE TRICK IS NOT JUST TO SEE
THE COMMERCIAL, BUT TO NOTICE
WHAT KIND OF CAR
THEY'RE SELLING.

Dan says EXACTLY, EXACTLY.

Maureen says I'M NOT SURE I WOULD HAVE
KNOWN RIGHT OFF THE BAT.
I KNEW IT WAS AN
EXPENSIVE KIND OF CAR.

Dan says YEAH, WE HAD A SIMILAR
QUESTION TO THAT, I THINK,
IN THE MILLIONAIRE,
WHEN WE DID THE SHOW.

Maureen says I REMEMBER THAT.

Dan says AND IT HAD TO DO WITH DRIVERS
WANTED, I THINK, WAS THE ONE.
AND IT'S VOLKSWAGEN.

Maureen says ITS VOLKSWAGEN.

Dan says I HEARD THE SLOGAN, BUT WHEN
SOMEBODY WROTE THE QUESTION,
I WAS LIKE, I DON'T
REMEMBER WHO IT IS.

Maureen says THE ONLY REASON I KNEW THAT
WAS I'D SEEN IT IN A MAGAZINE
JUST THAT DAY.
OTHERWISE, YOU KNOW?

Dan says IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS.
COMMERCIALS, I LOOK AT
COMMERCIALS AND I DON'T EVEN
NOTICE WHAT THEY'RE SELLING.

Maureen says THEY DON'T WANT US
TO SAY THAT, YOU KNOW?

Dan says I KNOW THEY DON'T.
BUT THAT'S TRUE.

Maureen says YEAH.
ALL RIGHT, THANKS
VERY MUCH, DAN.
WE'LL BE SENDING YOU
A MORE TO LIFE MUG.
AND WE'LL MOVE ON
TO BETTY IN ORILLIA.
HI, BETTY.

Betty says HI.

Maureen says HI YOU ALL SET?

Betty says I HOPE SO.

Maureen says OKAY, THIS ONE IS
ABOUT TV, AS WELL.
WHO PORTRAYS PRESIDENT
BARTLETT ON THE EMMY-WINNING
TELEVISION DRAMA,
THE WEST WING?
IS IT BILL PULLMAN, ROB LOWE,
JOHN MAHONEY, OR MARTIN SHEEN?

Betty says OH, GOSH.
I THINK MARTIN SHEEN.

Maureen says IS THAT YOUR FINAL ANSWER?

Betty says YES.

Maureen says YES, IT IS MARTIN SHEEN.

Betty says OH, MY GOODNESS,
I GOT IT RIGHT.

Maureen says I HAVE ONE FOR DAN, OKAY?
JUST HANG ON.
AND WHAT NEUROLOGICAL
CONDITION DOES HE SUFFER FROM
ON THE PROGRAM?
NOT MARTIN SHEEN, BUT
PRESIDENT BARTLETT?

Dan says OH, THAT'S A GOOD ONE.

Maureen says IS IT -- I'LL GIVE
YOU SOME CHOICES.
DOES HE HAVE PARKINSON'S
DISEASE, DOES HE HAVE
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS --?

Dan says MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

Maureen says THAT'S RIGHT.
I WAS GOING TO SAY ARTHRITIS.

Dan says I'M SORRY.
I KNEW THAT AS SOON AS YOU --
I WATCH THE SHOW RELIGIOUSLY,
BUT I COULDN'T EXACTLY
REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS
UNTIL YOU SAID IT.
Maureen says IT WAS A COUPLE OF EPISODES
THEY DEALT WITH IT, AND
THEN THAT'S IT.
ALL RIGHT, BETTY, WE'LL BE
SENDING YOU A
MORE TO LIFE
MUG, CONGRATULATIONS.
WE'RE MOVING RIGHT ALONG HERE.
JUDY IS NEXT.
HI, JUDY.
YOU THERE, JUDY?

Judy says YES, I AM.

Maureen says OKAY.
MOVING ON TO PAGE THREE.
JUDY, WHAT ONTARIO CITY
WAS CREATED IN 1970 BY THE
AMALGAMATION OF THE CITIES OF
FORT WILLIAM AND PORT ARTHUR?
WAS IT WINDSOR, NORTH BAY,
SUDBURY, OR THUNDER BAY?

Judy says THUNDER BAY?

Maureen says IS THAT YOUR FINAL ANSWER?

Judy says IT'S A GUESS, YES.

Maureen says IT'S A GOOD GUESS.
IT'S RIGHT.
IT'S RIGHT.
WHY DID THEY DO THAT?
DO YOU KNOW ANY
HISTORY ON THIS ONE?

Dan says I HAVE NO IDEA
WHY THEY DID IT.
THAT'S A REALLY
GOOD QUESTION.
I DON'T KNOW.
THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS,
THIS IS INTERESTING ABOUT THIS
QUESTION IS THIS IS A
VERY REGIONAL QUESTION.
VERY ONTARIO SORT OF BASED,
EVEN REGIONAL WITHIN ONTARIO.

Maureen says YEA.

Dan says AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE
THINGS WE LEARNED WHEN WE DID
MILLIONAIRE WAS REGIONAL
QUESTIONS BECAME MUCH MORE
DIFFICULT THAN WE
THOUGHT THEY WERE.
WE HAD A NUMBER OF THEM.
DIGBY CHICKEN WAS A
REALLY GOOD EXAMPLE.

Maureen says THAT WAS HARD.

Dan says OGOPOGO WAS ANOTHER ONE
PEOPLE REALLY HAD TROUBLE WITH.
AND THAT WAS SOMETHING -- THE
AMERICANS DON'T DEAL WITH
THAT SO MUCH.
THE REGIONAL THING ISN'T
AS BIG A DEAL FOR THEM.
BUT, IN CANADA, IT SEEMS
TO BE A BIG PROBLEM.
THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS
WE LEARNED DOING THE SHOW.

Maureen says SO PROBABLY THIS QUESTION
ABOUT THE AMALGAMATION OF
FORT WILLIAM AND PORT ARTHUR
WOULDN'T HAVE MADE IT ON TO
THE NETWORK SHOW.

Dan says IT MIGHT HAVE, BUT AFTER
HAVING DONE THE QUESTIONS AND
THE SHOW NOW, I WOULD PLAY
IT HIGHER THAN I MIGHT HAVE
ORIGINALLY JUST BECAUSE
IT'S VERY REGIONAL.

Maureen says MAYBE THE 32,000 LEVEL
OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

Dan says MAYBE UP THERE IN THAT RANGE.
JUST BECAUSE I THINK IT
IS A REGIONAL QUESTION.
AND PEOPLE IN B.C. PROBABLY
HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE.

Maureen says THIS IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS,
I KNOW THAT ANSWER, AND I DON'T
KNOW WHY I KNOW THAT BECAUSE
I'M FROM SOUTHERN ONTARIO.
I DON'T KNOW WHY I KNOW THAT.

Dan says IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS
YOU JUST SORT OF --

Maureen says EITHER YOU PICKED IT
UP, OR YOU DIDN'T.
VERY GOOD THOUGH.
JUDY'S GOT A
MORE TO LIFE
MUG COMING, AND WE'LL GO
TO BETTY IN OSHAWA.
HI, BETTY.

Betty says HELLO.

Maureen says HI.
HERE'S YOUR QUESTION.
WHO ARE THE HOSTS OF THE
WILDLIFE TELEVISION SHOW
ZOBOOMAFOO?

Dan says THAT'S RIGHT.
IT AIRS ON TVO.

Maureen says I KNEW IT DID, BUT I NEVER
KNEW HOW TO PRONOUNCE IT.
IS IT SHARON, LOIS AND BRAM,
CHRIS AND MARTIN KRATT,
LIZ AND LOIS SMITH, OR
CURLY, LARRY AND MOE?

Betty says CHRIS AND HIS BROTHER.

Maureen says OTHERWISE KNOWN
AS, YEAH.
HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT?

Betty says I'VE ACTUALLY WATCHED IT.
DO YOU HAVE KIDS
WHO WATCH IT?

Betty says NO, I'M A GRANDMOTHER.

Maureen says YOU'RE A GRANDMOTHER.

Dan says IT'S A GREAT SHOW.

Maureen says IT'S NOT JUST A KIDS' SHOW?

Dan says I THINK THAT'S HOW IT'S
MARKETED, BUT I THINK IT'S
A GREAT SHOW.
I WATCH IT ALL THE TIME.

Maureen says I THINK OF
KRATTS'CREATURES
AND STUFF. THEY'RE GREAT, THOSE GUYS.

Dan says ABSOLUTELY.

Maureen says MY SON WATCHES IT, AND WANTS
TO KNOW HOW HE GETS A JOB LIKE
THAT, HOSTING A TV SHOW WITH A
BUNCH OF ANIMALS CLIMBING
ALL OVER HIM.
YOU'D LIKE THAT, TOO.
ALL RIGHT, BETTY, YOU
GET A MORE TO LIFE
MUG.THANKS VERY MUCH.
SHANE, I THINK WE SAID?
SHANE IS NEXT.
HI, SHANE.

Shane says HI.

Maureen says HI, HOW ARE YOU?

Shane says GOOD.

Maureen says OKAY, GOT A CANADIAN
LIT QUESTION FOR YOU.

Shane says OKAY.

Maureen says WHAT MARGARET ATWOOD NOVEL
WAS MADE INTO A SCIENCE
FICTION FILM IN 1990
STARRING ROBERT DUVALL?
WAS IT SURFING, BODILY
HARM, THE HANDMAID'S TALE,
OR LIFE BEFORE MAN?

Shane says WHAT WAS THE SECOND ONE?

Maureen says I SAID SURFING,
SURFACING.BODILY HARM
IS THE SECOND ONE.
THE HANDMAID'S TALE,
AND LIFE BEFORE MAN.

Shane says BODILY HARM.

Maureen says SORRY, THAT'S WRONG.
SORRY, SHANE.

Shane says THAT'S OKAY.

Maureen says ALL RIGHT, THANKS
FOR PLAYING.

Shane says THANK YOU.

Maureen says BYE-BYE.
CHRIS IS IN TORONTO.
HI, CHRIS.

Chris says HI.

Maureen says WE'LL GIVE THAT ONE TO YOU.
WHICH MARGARET ATWOOD NOVEL
MADE INTO A SCIENCE FICTION
FILM STARRING ROBERT
DUVALL IN 1990.

Chris says GEE, IT'S A BODY PART,
THE FOOTMAID'S...
THE HANDMAID'S --

Maureen says YOU'RE PLAYING
WITH US THERE.
HANDMAID'S TALE,RIGHT.
DID YOU SEE THE MOVIE?

Chris says YEAH, I LOVED IT.

Maureen says YEAH, I DID, TOO.
DID YOU READ THE BOOK?

Chris says NO, I DIDN'T, BUT
THE MOVIE WAS GREAT.

Maureen says ARE YOU A MARGARET ATWOOD
FAN AS A MATTER OF COURSE?

Chris says NOT REALLY, I READ
DIFFERENT BOOKS.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
DO YOU READ CAN LIT?

Dan says OH, YEAH.
I READ ALL SORTS OF THINGS.
I'M NOT A BIG MARGARET ATWOOD
FAN, AND I DIDN'T SEE THIS
MOVIE OR READ THE BOOK,
BUT I DID KNOW THAT.

Maureen says OKAY.
ALL RIGHT, CONGRATULATIONS,
CHRIS, THANKS FOR PLAYING.
SEND YOU A MUG.
AND LET'S GET ED
IN THUNDER BAY.
HI, ED.

Ed says HI.

Maureen says ED, YOU PROBABLY KNOW WHY
THEY AMALGAMATED THOSE TWO
CITIES AND MADE THUNDER BAY?

Ed says WELL, THEY'RE REALLY CLOSE.

Maureen says OH, THEY'RE REALLY CLOSE.

Ed says LIKE, IT'S ONE BIG CITY.

Maureen says THAT'S WHAT THEY SAID
ABOUT TORONTO HERE.
WELL, THEY'RE
ALL REALLY CLOSE.
OKAY, ED, HERE'S
YOUR QUESTION.
WHAT WAS ONTARIO KNOWN AS JUST
PRIOR TO CONFEDERATION IN 1867?
WAS ONTARIO KNOWN AS UPPER
CANADA, LOWER CANADA, CANADA
EAST, OR CANADA WEST?

Ed says UPPER CANADA.

Maureen says I WANT TO READ THE QUESTION
AGAIN BECAUSE I HAVE TO BE
REALLY SPECIFIC HERE.
WHAT WAS ONTARIO KNOWN AS JUST
PRIOR TO CONFEDERATION IN 1867?

Ed says UPPER AND LOWER CANADA.

Maureen says SO YOU SAY UPPER CANADA?

Ed says YES.

Maureen says FINAL ANSWER?

Ed says YES.

Maureen says SORRY, NO.
NOT ACCORDING TO
MY RESEARCH HERE.
THANKS FOR PLAYING, ED.
LET'S GO TO ELSIE.
HI, ELSIE.

Elsie says HELLO.

Maureen says I WOULD HAVE
SAID UPPER CANADA.
ELSIE, IS IT LOWER CANADA,
CANADA EAST, OR CANADA WEST?

Elsie says I WOULD SAY CANADA EAST?

Maureen says ONTARIO WAS KNOWN
AS CANADA EAST?

Elsie says MM-MMM.

Maureen says SORRY, THAT'S
WRONG, TOO, ELSIE.

Elsie says OH OK.

Maureen says SORRY, BYE.
GARY IN LONDON.
HI, GARY.

Gary says HI.

Maureen says IF YOU DON'T GET IT, THEN
WE JUST SAY THE ANSWER.
WAS IT, WE'RE DOWN TO CANADA
WEST AND LOWER CANADA.
THOSE ARE THE TWO THAT
HAVEN'T BEEN CHOSEN.

Gary says I GUESS IT WOULD
BE CANADA WEST?

Maureen says YEAH.
WHY, DAN?

Dan says WELL, IT WAS AT ONE POINT
UPPER AND LOWER CANADA.
ACTUALLY, WHAT IS ONTARIO
AND QUEBEC, UPPER AND LOWER
CANADA WERE MADE INTO THE
UNITED PROVINCE OF CANADA,
CANADA WEST AND CANADA EAST.
AND THEY HAD A PARLIAMENT.
THEY EACH HAD EQUAL NUMBER OF
MEMBERS REPRESENTED IN THEIR
PARLIAMENT AT THE TIME.

Maureen says SO THE CLUE IS JUST
BEFORE CONFEDERATION.
THAT'S RIGHT.
WE'RE ALL OUT OF TIME.
I WANT TO THANK
EVERYBODY WHO PLAYED.
AND CONGRATULATIONS
ON WINNING THE MUGS.
AND THANK YOU FOR
PLAYING ALONG.
IT WAS FUN.

Dan says YEAH, THANKS FOR HAVING ME.
DAN DILKS IS HEAD WRITER
FOR THE CANADIAN VERSION OF
WHO WANTS TO BE
A MILLIONAIRE.
IF YOU'D LIKE TO BOOST
YOUR TRIVIA QUOTIENT,
YOU CAN CHECK OUT: CANADIAN HISTORY FOR DUMMIES.

The Canadian History for Dummies book in yellow appears on screen on a table. It
has a man holding a Canadian flag.

Maureen says IT'S PUBLISHED BY CDG BOOKS.
AND WE'RE GOING TO GIVE COPIES
OF THAT OUT TO LAURIE,
AND ANNE BRIAN IN CHATHAM,
CONGRATULATIONS.
BUT STAY WITH US.
AFTER A SHORT BREAK, WE'LL BE
BACK WITH SOME SCARY MOVIES.

A screen appears and has the symbol tvo in a black box and tvo.org is spelled
below.

The Female Narrator says YOU'RE WATCHING
TELEVISION THAT MATTERS.

A fast clip shows clips of movies of cinema internacinale: people walking on the
subway, a train on the train tracks, and a Muslim marriage. A caption appears
and it reads “Cinema International. Fridays 9pm on tfo.”

The Narrator continues IF YOU ENJOY TVO SUNDAY NIGHT
AT THE CINEMA, YOU'LL LOVE
CINEMA INTERNATIONAL.
SEEN ON TV ONTARIO'S FRENCH
NETWORK, TFO, EVERY FRIDAY
NIGHT AT NINE.
THIS SERIES IS A MUST FOR
VIEWERS WITH A PASSION FOR
FILM AND THE FRENCH LANGUAGE.

A screen shows Monday at 7pm on Vista: a fast clip shows a submarine emerging
from the ocean. Then the clip shows in the inside of the submarine and people
working in the command center.

The Male Narrator says WATCH:
MONDAY AT 7 ON
VISTA THE
MOST COMPLEX FIGHTING SHIP
EVER BUILT, THE AMERICAN
NAVY'S SEA WOLF.
WITH ADVANCED WEAPONRY AND
NEW TACTICAL CAPABILITY AND
COMMUNICATIONS, IT OFFERS THE
NAVY A NUCLEAR POWERED ATTACK
SUBMARINE THAT RUNS QUIETER
AND FASTER THAN ANY OTHER SHIP.
NEW WATER AND AIR PURIFIERS
ALLOW IT TO REMAIN
SUBMERGED INDEFINITELY.

The screen changes to a view of the submarine in the ocean and below the caption
reads “Vista. 7pm. Monday. Tvo.”

The Narrator says THE SEA WOLF THE NEXT
GENERATION OF SUBMARINES,
MONDAY ON VISTA.

A blue screen appears and reads “Job matters.” and above that www.tvo.org. And a
small white box shows an interchange of a hammer, computer, wrench, and police
cap.

A clip shows a man putting on an all white pantsuit with his face covered as
well and gloves.

Marc says 30 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD, OUR
ENTIRE SOCIETY IS GOING TO BE
FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGED
BY BIOTECHNOLOGY.
MY NAME IS MARC D'ANJOU.
I'M THE BIOPROCESS ENGINEER
AT PRO GENESIS IN MONTREAL.
BIOTECHNOLOGY IS THE
APPLICATION OF FINDINGS IN
LIFE SCIENCE TO PRODUCE
USEFUL, SELLABLE PRODUCTS.

Marc is seen on a bike with a helmet and a cyclist shirt. Marc is in his
thirties and is clean-shaven and has brown hair.

A clip shows Marc wearing a white lab coat in a laboratory and then gesturing to
a white board with drawings, and then lastly Marc puts on gloves and inspects
vaccines that are in syringes.

Marc says WHAT FASCINATES ME ABOUT MY
JOB, I THINK, IS WORKING WITH
LIVING SYSTEMS, TRYING TO
APPLY SOME MORE TRADITIONAL
ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES TO A
LIVING SYSTEM AND GETTING
THEM TO DO WHAT YOU WANT.
MY JOB IS PRINCIPALLY FOCUSSED
ON RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT,
WHERE WE'RE TRYING TO
MAKE USEFUL PRODUCTS.
IN THE CASE OF PRO GENESIS,
WHAT WE'RE DOING IS WE'RE
MAKING VACCINES FOR THE
AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY FOR FISH.
SO AS AN ENGINEER, I SORT
OF TAKE THE BASIC SCIENCE
CONCEPTS THAT ARE DISCOVERED
BY OTHER MEMBERS OF OUR TEAM,
AND TRY TO PUT THEM TOGETHER
INTO A MORE USEFUL,
PRACTICAL APPLICATION.
THE OTHER ASPECT OF MY
WORK IS THE MAINTENANCE AND
CALIBRATION OF SOME OF THE
SPECIALIZED EQUIPMENT WE USE
IN THE MANUFACTURING
PROCESS OF THESE VACCINES.

With gloves Marc places the vaccines into tubes and then tube holders. Then he
puts a drop on a slide and inspects it under a microscope.

Marc says I THINK THE PEOPLE WHO
ADAPT WELL TO WORKING IN
BIO TECHNOLOGY, THEY
TEND TO BE PATIENT.
YOUR SCHEDULE ALWAYS HAS TO
BE DETERMINED BY THE CELLS.
CELLS DON'T GO
HOME AT 5 O'CLOCK.
THE JOB OPPORTUNITIES IN LIFE
SCIENCES IN BIOTECHNOLOGY ARE,
THERE IS A LOT OF THEM.
IT'S A REAL GROWTH INDUSTRY,
AND THERE IS A LACK OF
QUALIFIED PEOPLE.
THE REALLY KEY PART
FOR THE JOB IS HAVING
THE ACADEMIC BACKGROUND.
THE LAB EXPERIENCE YOU GET IN
A UNIVERSITY UNDERGRAD AND
MASTERS PROGRAM IS ESSENTIAL,
AND JUST GIVING YOU THE BASIC
KNOWLEDGE TO BE ABLE
TO CARRY THE WORK OUT.
LIFE IS INHERENTLY
UNPREDICTABLE, AND TRYING TO
BE ABLE TO HARNESS IT AND MAKE
IT DO SOMETHING USEFUL FOR YOU
IS REALLY,
REALLY FASCINATING.

A blue screen appears and reads “Job matters.” and above that www.tvo.org. And a
small white box shows an interchange of a hammer, computer, wrench, and police
cap.

A screen appears and has the symbol tvo in a black box and tvo.org is spelled
below.

Maureen returns to the studio and she has a flashlight shining on her face and
the studio is in the dark.

Maureen says IT'S ALMOST HALLOWEEN, OOH,
AND IT'S TIME FOR SCARY MOVIES,
OOH.
AND WE'RE GOING TO HEAR
ABOUT SOME SCARY MOVIES
THIS AFTERNOON.
OOH.
ENOUGH OF THAT.
PUT THE LIGHTS ON, AND
WELCOME THOM, HOW ARE YOU?

Tom is in his forties and has brown hair and he wears a blue cardigan sweater

Tom says WELL, I'M A
LITTLE NERVOUS NOW.
THAT WAS SCARY.

Maureen says PEOPLE ARE GOING,
LADY, YOU ARE SCARY.
I KNOW YOU'RE A
REAL HORROR FAN.
YOU LOVE THE GENRE.
WE'RE GOING TO
WATCH SOME CLIPS.
ARE THESE TOO SCARY FOR KIDS
WHO MIGHT BE WATCHING THIS
AFTERNOON, THE CLIPS?

Tom says THE CLIPS, MAYBE NOT,
BUT THE MOVIES, YES.

Maureen says OKAY.
DON'T LET YOUR KIDS WATCH
THESE MOVIES, BUT THE CLIPS
WE'RE GOING TO SHOW
AREN'T TOO BAD.
WHAT IS JUST OUT THIS WEEKEND?
BECAUSE HOLLYWOOD ALWAYS WAITS
FOR HALLOWEEN TO RELEASE
A FEW THINGS.

The caption changes to “Thom Ernst. Movie Buff.”

Tom says BLAIR WITCH, BOOK OF SHADOWS,
WHICH IS BLAIR WITCH 2.
THAT'S OUT JUST IN TIME.
I THINK IT'S BEING
RELEASED TODAY.
AND THE EXORCIST,THOUGH GOT RELEASED EARLIER, IS
STILL LINGERING AROUND
FOR THE HALLOWEEN AUDIENCES.

Maureen says THE ONE THAT'S GETTING A LOT
OF HYPE IS BLAIR WITCH 2,
ALTHOUGH THE REVIEWS
TODAY ARE SO-SO.
SHOULD WE WATCH A CLIP
FIRST, THEN WE'LL FIND OUT
WHAT YOU THOUGHT.

Thom says PERFECT.

Maureen says OKAY.
I HOPE WE HAVE THAT
CLIP LINED UP.
HERE IS BLAIR WITCH 2.
[mumbling]

A clip plays of the movie and a girl is rocking back and forth as another one
kneels right beside her.

Girl 1 is dressed in goth makeup and has dark black hair and a collar necklace.
Girl 2 has long wavy red hair and wears a skirt and a tank top. They both sit in
a circle of candles.

Girl 1 says ERICA?

Girl 1 says ERICA!

Girl 2 says WE BROUGHT SOMETHING
BACK WITH US.

Girl 1 says WHAT ARE YOU
TALKING ABOUT?

Girl 2 says I CAN SENSE IT.
LIKE SOMEONE'S
CHOKING ME
AND SQUEEZING THE
AIR OUT OF ME.

Girl 1 says LOOK, YOU'RE
JUST TIRED, OKAY?
YOU'RE JUST TIRED.
WE ARE ALL JUST
REALLY TIRED.
THAT IS IT.

Girl 2 says LET ME SHOW
YOU SOMETHING.

Girl 1 says ERICA, I'VE GOT
THE SAME THING, OKAY?
IT'S NOTHING.
IT'S LIKE POISON
OAK OR SOMETHING.

Girl 2 says IT'S HIM.
THEY'RE GROWING.

Maureen says LOOKS MORE LIKE AN EPISODE
OF BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
THAN --

Thom says THAT'S A GOOD COMPARISON.
THE ACTING IN THIS
ISN'T UP TO PAR.
AND THE MOVIE DEFINITELY
DOES NOT HAVE WHAT
THE BLAIR WITCH
HAD.IN MY OPINION, I LOVED
THE BLAIR WITCH.
DOESN'T HAVE THE
SAME INTENSITY.
HOWEVER, THE CAMERA DOES
STAY STILL FOR LONGER
PERIODS OF TIME.
AND THAT MAY BE A RELIEF
TO A LOT OF PEOPLE.
BUT WHAT SEEMS TO BE -- IF
THIS CONTINUES, WHAT SEEMS TO
BE ONE OF THE MARKS OF
THE BLAIR WITCH IS THAT
THEY HAVE GREAT ENDINGS.

Maureen says OH.

Thom says THEY HAVE SHOCKER ENDINGS.
AND THIS HAS A SHOCKING
ENDING THAT STAYED WITH ME.
I WENT WITH A FRIEND.
AND THEY WERE TALKING
ABOUT IT THIS MORNING
AS A MATTER OF FACT.
AND I'LL ALSO POINT OUT, AS WE
WERE LEAVING THE THEATRE, AND
I WAS WONDERING I WAS SORT OF GAUGING THE
AUDIENCE REACTION, A LOT OF
PEOPLE WERE TALKING TO THEIR
SPOUSES OR PARTNERS GOING,
DO YOU THINK THEY'LL BE OKAY?
DO YOU... SO THERE WAS STILL
THAT LITTLE BIT OF FEAR.

Maureen says SO THERE'S SOMETHING OF A REALISM OKAY.

Dan says ALTHOUGH I DON'T THINK THAT
WAS APPARENT BY THE PARTICULAR
CLIP WE SHOWED, BUT THERE
IS AN ODDITY THAT HAPPENS.
IT'S WORTH STAYING THROUGH.
ALTHOUGH I DON'T THINK YOU'RE
GOING TO LIKE IT AS MUCH AS
THE BLAIR WITCH.

Maureen says OKAY, SO THAT'S
BLAIR WITCH 2.
THE OTHER THING YOU MENTIONED
THAT'S OUT IS
THE EXORCIST.
SO WHY DON'T WE TAKE A LOOK AT
A CLIP FROM THE EXORCIST.

A clip of the exorcist begins.

The clip begins with an upstairs hallway with one white door at the end. The
door opens and a woman screams, a bed moves, and then a cross appears, people
are seen praying on pray mats, a Ouija board moves, and then
There is a lot of wind and plates are smashed against a window.

Male Voice says WHAT AN EXCELLENT
DAY FOR AN EXORCISM.

Woman 1 screams AHHH!

Child screams MOTHER!

Woman screams AAAH!
Male Voice says DO YOU KNOW
WHAT SHE DID?
[glass smashing]

Maureen says NOW, THAT'S NOT ONE SCENE.
THAT'S SORT OF A COMPILATION
OF THE GREATEST HITS.

Thom says BUT THAT'S SCARY STUFF.

Maureen says IT WAS WHEN IT
WAS FIRST RELEASED.

Thom says DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN IT WAS
FIRST RELEASED THAT THEY HAD
POLICEMEN AT THE DOOR MAKING
SURE YOU WERE OF AGE?

Maureen says YEAH, IT WAS A HUGE DEAL.

Thom says A HUGE DEAL AND I THINK IT STILL
WORKS AS A HORROR FILM.
IT'S STILL INTELLIGENT.
IT'S STILL, WELL, IT'S THE
SAME, THE WAY IT WAS SHOT BACK
THEN STILL WORKS TODAY.
AGAIN, TWO 16-YEAR-OLD,
17-YEAR-OLD YOUNG LADIES
WERE SITTING BEHIND US.
THEY WERE CHATTING
AT THE BEGINNING.
THEY'RE QUIET DURING THE
MIDDLE, AND THEY WERE
WHIMPERING BY THE END.

Maureen says IS THAT RIGHT?

Thom says OH, I LOVED IT.

Maureen says OKAY, GOOD.
NOW, IN VIDEO, WE WERE TALKING
OF BLAIR WITCH 1 AND 2,
YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING
ALONG THAT THEME.
SOMEONE'S MADE A
SPOOF OUT OF IT.

Thom holds up the cover of a spoof of Blair Witch 1 and 2 which has a face on it
from the angle of a camera taking a selfie shot.

Thom says SOMEONE HAS MADE A
TERRIBLE SPOOF OUT OF IT.
IT'S CALLED A BOGUS
WITCH PROJECT.
WHICH REALLY SHOULD BE GOOD.
IT SHOULD BE A FUNNY MOVIE.
Maureen says LOOK AT THE PICTURE
ON THE FRONT.

Thom says ABSOLUTELY.
AM I HOLDING THIS PROPERLY?
ARE WE GETTING THAT?

Maureen says YEAH, THAT'S GOOD.

Thom says IT'S BEING TOUTED AS
A PAULY SHORE MOVIE,
WHICH IS SCARY ENOUGH.
BUT HE IS REALLY ONLY IN IT
FOR THREE OR FOUR MINUTES.
IT'S A COLLECTION OF AMATEUR
FILMMAKERS WHO MAKE SPOOFS,
LIKE TEN, MAYBE 3-MINUTE SPOOFS
OF THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT
SO YOU'RE GETTING THE SAME
THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER
AGAIN WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE.

Maureen says ALL RIGHT.
JUST IN OUR FINAL MINUTE,
WHAT DO YOU HAVE ON
SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE
MOVIES SATURDAY?

Thom says OUR THEME IS SCARY MOVIES.
WE'RE TALKING TO VINCENT
PRICE, ROGER CORMAN,
ALL SORTS OF GREAT PEOPLE.
AND WE'RE SHOWING TWO REALLY
EXCEPTIONAL ROGER CORMAN
PICTURES THAT WERE B PICTURES
AT THE TIME, AND NOW HAVE
SORT OF GAINED A REAL CULT
STANDING, BOTH THE RAVEN
AND THE PENDULUM.

Maureen says WITH VINCENT PRICE
IN BOTH OF THEM.

Thom says BOTH WITH VINCENT PRICE.
ONE IS VERY COMEDIC,
AND ONE IS VERY GOTHIC.

Maureen says OKAY, SO THAT'S ON SNAM
THIS SATURDAY NIGHT.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN.

Thom says AND TO YOU, TOO.

Maureen says ALL RIGHT.
THAT'S THOM ERNST.
YOU CAN FIND HIS SCARY MOVIE
REVIEWS ON OUR WEBSITE: WWW.TVO.ORG/MORETOLIFE AND JUST FOLLOW THE LINKS.

A screen appears under the title “More To Life.” It reads
“www.tvo.org/moretolife.”
