The Naked Gun

Question: What song is playing when Frank accidentally activates the player piano?

Chosen answer: "I'm Into Something Good." It's the second song listed in the music credits, and if you don't read all the credits you miss a good part of the gags in the movie.

"I'm Into Something Good" is played during the scenes where Frank is going out with Jane. The song the person is asking about is this song. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wn-MlISDsNs.

Answer: The opening song during the credits is the theme song from the 1982 TV series "Police Squad!" The Naked Gun movies are based on the short lived TV series.

Question: Why does the snitch at the pier claim that Nordburg was a dirty cop?

Dangar

Answer: Because Nordberg was working undercover in Ludwig's organization; not knowing this, the snitch would only see him working with Ludwig's crew, and would thus believe he was dirty.

Question: I am watching "The Naked Gun" on the IFC Network, and during one of the commercials they asked a trivia question about the movie that I never saw answered. The question was, "Which famous comedian contributed a scene or gag for the movie", and the choices were Mel Brooks, Steve Martin, and one other name that I do not remember. Does anyone know the answer to this question? I can not find any information about it anywhere. Thank you.

Hawk

Chosen answer: Mel Brooks. When Frank is undercover as the ump, one of the batters hits Frank in the face with the bat. This was a suggestion Brooks had made.

Question: What were Frank and Ed eating in the car before Frank went into Ludwig's office, and what parts were they throwing out the window (which got piled up outside Frank's door)?

Answer: Red pistachios. Which are regular pistachios that have been dyed red, so that eating a lot of them would stain your fingers and mouth, especially once your fingers got wet.

Factual error: At the onset of the baseball game, take a look at the Angel's catcher as Mariner Jay Johnstone steps up to bat. You will see he is wearing just a standard baseball hat under his catcher's helmet. MLB rules requires some form of certified (protective inside and out) plastic helmet for catchers, and thus this would not be allowed. (01:07:35)

More quotes from The Naked Gun

Trivia: The baseball blooper reel shows a ballplayer's head coming off when he crashes into a fence. This scene is a tribute to a quote from San Diego Padres announcer Jerry Coleman: "Winfield goes back to the wall. He hits his head on the wall - and it rolls off! It's rolling all the way back to second base! This is a terrible thing for the Padres."
