9. I think it later became...."I'd rather die than quit". (some cigarette, can't remember which one)
10. gonna guess Michigan with it's Upper Peninsula
16. Is Martha who you are going after
20. He called a black player a monkey (or made a comment about running like a monkey or something like that), though I don't know if he was "fired" for that, or just quit later on. Don't think he ever admitted to it being racial or apologized.

1..Made for a conspicuous addition to retail.

7..Early in the show, Monica Potter was a regular.

Someone must have sprinkled moondust over me. I created a test where you score 23?

7..A guy named Auchincloss was part of a successful TV law firm show(?). Upink wants to know if you mean Auberjonois. If yes, her answer is Boston Legal.

Finishing...

1..NCor & VAUC come in all out of breath with CASH REGISTER.

2..NCor again with Packard.

3..VTC identifies Rolfing.

4..It is Menes, which NCor typed.

5..Geordi sounds correct to me with Mayan.

6..NCor and Ed4 are aboard the EUROSTAR.

7..UPink takes off the duncecap I am wearing. I gave you the wrong guy. The show is Boston Legal.

8..Geordi provides Stan & Ollie, Laurel & Hardy.

9..VTC starts a bunch with the ad for Tareyton Cigarettes.

10..It's Minny...ha ha. VTC, JRRRJ & Mr. Upink are all laughing.

11..Grebe works, Codger is one of 4.

12..The Bridges, Lloyd, Beau & Jeff; VTC leads 3.

13..When I type underlining blanks, I am always faithful to the number of letters missing. Thus STATIONS trumps SIGN.
JRRRJ is one of 5.

Yes, there are always more.

The rest...

14..Rarely would I not credit a poster just for leaving off a final "s", but this is one of those cases.
Since "St. John" is in another province, to be correct you need to have "St. John's" (well, I accept
the lack of an apostrophe). LOSERS!

15..VAUC & NCor with Mike Hammer.

16..OK, because of St John's and this one, you did not really score 23, but 21. I neglected to provide a hint.
Here it comes: "Ask Dustin about her."

17..VAUC has Wm. Rhenquist. The other was Lewis Powell, Yup, also dead.

18..Seven say VTC & JR.

19..Several of you with GYPSY WOMAN. I single out VAUC, just 'cause he gave the Impressions.

20..Howard referred to a black player as "that little monkey". He expained that that was a family endearment,
in that he referred warmly to his grandchildren that way. He was fired. Meyers and 4 others have
a rough memory.

21..That sad case, Neville Chamberlain, I say with hindsight. Geordi plus 3.

22..VTC is in a foursome with Hearts.

23..Ed4 with another hard one--the marathon.

24..Only geordi completes the line--"working".

25..First feature length animation rightly says JR.

Like Bryan Adams says, "Everything I do, I do it for you".
