  1. For anyone who hasn't seen 'Smokey and the Bandit II', the doctor was talking about Charlotte the elephant.
  2. Once again you've missed out a lot of the quote and you've also attributed some of the lines to the wrong people. Can you either make your quotes accurate or make it clear that you're paraphrasing? The scene, which takes place just after Cledus (and the audience) first see the Trans Am, actually plays out like this: Snowman: Now, you know them Smokeys they got them CBs in the car now? You know that? Bandit: I know that, I know that, I haven't worked that out yet, but I'm thinkin' about it. Snowman: Hey. Bandit: You got an idea? Snowman: I got an idea. Bandit: Yeah? Snowman: Why don't we do this? If I say go to channel 21, forget it. We ain't goin' to 21, we're goin' to 19. Bandit: 21 is 19? Snowman: 21 is 19. And if I say go to channel six, forget it. We go to three. Bandit: I don't go to six, I go to three? Snowman: You go to three. Bandit: Perfect. Snowman: And if I say go to channel two, we gonna go to channel one. Bandit: Two is one. Snowman: See, that'll confuse everybody. Bandit: That'll confuse 'em. On the other hand, if we stayed on the odd channels, switched every time and started in the basement, that'd work, too, ha?. That'd do it, too, wouldn't it? Snowman: Well, yeah, yeah, that'd work too, I guess. Bandit: Let's haul ass. Snowman: OK.
  3. Despite Boss having a driver since 'One Armed Bandits', this is the first time he's named. Shortly after this line, Boss is standing in front of a sign advertising the "Hazzard County Fair Mon Oct 30 - Sat Nov 11". Those days/dates line up to a 1978 calendar, nearly a year before this episode aired, but I suppose that makes more sense than setting it a couple of weeks in the future.
  4. Gardai (the police) are still waiting to question a man admitted to hospital a couple of days ago with what might be self-inflicted wounds. Another man was arrested and questioned soon after the attack, but despite Gardai releasing him and saying he's no longer a suspect, he was named on social media and had to go into hiding! The incident may have brought people together, but it's not going to lead to unification. Brexit has added extra complications to the trade relationships between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and also between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.
  5. Yesterday afternoon, along with some friends, I attended a vigil for a young teacher, 23-year-old Ashling Murphy, who was murdered last week. Her death seems to have united not only Ireland, but also Irish communities around the world, with vigils being held in far away places such as New York. It was a moving occasion with a short circular walk led by local politicians and council members followed by a couple of brief speeches and a song from a local choir. Luckily, we had a beautiful, crisp winter's day with hardly a cloud in the sky. I haven't seen any official figures for attendance, but I'd says that a few hundred people turned up.
  6. Skipper, you seem to have missed a few lines and combined two scenes. The first scene is when Carrie is changing out of her wedding dress: Bandit: Last time I saw legs like that they had a message tied to 'em. Carrie: What do you mean? These are great little legs. I'm a professional. Bandit: Well, in that case, you shouldn't be dressed in white. Carrie: Dancer. Bandit: Oh. Well, cowboys love fat calves. Carrie: They're not fat. Bandit: They're bigger than mine. Carrie: Do we really wanna talk about legs? Bandit: Well, one of us does. The second scene is about 30 minutes later, just after Carrie meets Snowman. Carrie: You know, I was on Broadway once. Bandit: Really? Carrie: For almost 12 minutes. Bandit: Oh. Carrie: The show closed the first night.
  7. Thanks for asking, Roger. The incision scars have nearly healed and the shoulder pain finally seems to have gone. I guess that means that the worst is over.
  8. I finished 9 days of isolation yesterday. I got a positive antigen test on New Year's Day and so did a friend who I was with the day before. Unfortunately, probably partly due to the holidays, it took just over a week to get a PCR test (my friend somehow got theirs a couple of days earlier). The negative result came back last night, so I've finally started 2022 a week late! The most annoying thing is that halfway through last week the brand of antigen test that gave me a positive result was withdrawn from shops amid reports of false positives. In the end, I probably never had Covid, but you can't be too careful.
  9. I don't think they know yet. The article I read said "The sheriff’s office confirmed that no cause of death had been determined, saying in a statement there were no signs of foul play or drug use."
  10. Over here, NRA means the National Roads Authority. I believe it means something different to you.
  11. Tractor Lamborghini had a successful tractor business when he bought two Ferraris (circa early '60s). Soon afterwards he went back to Ferrari to suggest improvements, and was basically told to get lost, so he decided to build his own sports cars. I occasionally see new Lamborghini tractors, but they're far from the most popular make over here.
