The Geek Files: "Moonlighting"

Pusher is on assignment this week, so we're presenting one of her classic columns from the past. Yup, that's right- it's a rerun. Dig it.

Back in sixth grade I dug "Moonlighting". I mean, hard. I bought Bruce Willis everything - posters, magazines, even two copies of his album! You know, just in case.

One Tuesday, Tracy Farrer challenged my knowledge of the show. To test me she would develop a quiz based on that night's episode. My mom wouldn't let me use the VCR to record a show I was going to watch anyway (bitch!) so I had to really concentrate that night.

Tracy passed the folded paper right under Mr. Veglia's nose the next morning and I took the test. Question #1 - What was the 5th sentence that David Addison said? What!? My answer - "Hey Stinky, you missed a spot." And I was right. And I knew I was right.

Because I am a TV geek.

Pusher's "The Geek Files: Memoirs of a TV Addict" appears every Monday.

2 other geekspeak:

  • You bought two copies of Bruce WIllis' albums?!?! You've convinced me... you're a geek. A geek on wheels. Mega-geek. Geek on juice.

  • Hi Pusher, Writing from a Turkish keyboard and the strange foreign letters are driving me crazy. So I will be brief. Kudos to your articles. Impressive , ingenious, and admirable not only from me but your sisters as well. I don't want to let on that I date one of your sisters. So please forgive my anonymity. True tv geekiness would be if you knew the stars of old shows like Rawhide, Bat Masterson, Wild Bill Hickok, the Rifleman, and Sugarfoot. That is just westerns this time. Next time, I can expand the trivia theme to non westerns. Don't look now if you want to guess answers. Clint Eastwood, Gene Barry,Guy Madıson, Chuck Connors, and Wıll Hutchins. OK Looking forward to meeting you again and keep in shape. Bye.
