Do Not Argue

I woke up this morning singing the theme song to “Good Times”. Don’t ask me why (Kevin probably planted it in my head while I was sleeping). What followed was a rather lengthy discussion of 70’s and 80’s TV theme songs.
Kev: “You don’t even know the words to “Good Times”.
Me: “I do, too!”
Here is where I proceeded to sing pretty much the whole song. Mind you, I never watched it. Not once.
Kev: “Okay. Name one character on “Good Times”.
Me: “Ummmmm….Rerun? Shirley?”
Kev; “That would be “What’s Happening”.
Me: “Oh.”
Then the topic wound its way back to theme songs.
Kev: “What’s the first word in “The Jeffersons” theme song?”
Me: (with absolutely no hesitation) “Well.”
Kev: “No it’s not! Hahahahahhahahaha!!! Got ya! It’s “fish”!
Me:” No, it’s “well”.
At which point, I, once again, sang the entire song.
Kev: “No! It’s “fish”! “Fish don’t fry in the kitchen! Beans don’t burn on the grill!”
Me: “No no no!!! That’s the bridge!”
Needless to say, we had to go look it up on the internet, but, of course, I was right.
Kev: “Okay, Miss Smartypants. What’s the first word to “Sanford and Sons”?
Me: “Trick question. There are no words to the “Sanford and Sons” theme. It pretty much sounds like creepy porn music”.
Kev: “Curses! Foiled again!”
Keep in mind, this conversation took place entirely before I had consumed any caffeine. I’m pretty sure my neighbors heard me bleating out “Good Times”. Where does this crap come from? The human brain is a remarkable thing. Come to think of it, I know all the words to “The Love Boat”, “Facts of Life”, “Growing Pains”, and I can still recite the entire intro to “Fantasy Island” (and, for bonus points, I can sing the theme to “Scarecrow and Mrs. King” and “Moonlighting” {thanks, Al Jarreau, for that fine piece of music}).
The point is this: Don’t argue with me on 80’s TV. I will dominate every time. Oh, and never go up against a Sicilian when death is on the line.

    1) Never watched Magnum P.I. He was too hairy.
    2)Brandon. And please, at least make it a little challenging.
    3) Rhonda (okay, this one gave me some trouble. But I got it!)
    4) Jack’s Bistro. Again, too easy. (But what was his wife’s name, what did she do for a living, and what was the spin-off?)
    5) This is a trick question, and it gave me some trouble. I admit, I used Wikipedia for this one, and here’s your answer: It’s not. It was adapted from a movie.
    6) Melville’s. And come on! I own the Cheers trivia game.
    7) Abraham. After Abraham Lincoln. And he slept in the top bunk. Arnold, not the fish.
