What TV show is this an episode of? A woman, one of the show's main characters, is in the women's bathroom at her job. She tells a co-worker that they're the only women in this part of the building, so this bathroom is like their own private one. She is offended when the co-worker still uses one of those paper toilet seat liners. It turns out that the co-worker thinks she is promiscuous, and prefers not to sit directly on the same toilet seat as her. I saw this in the early 2000s or late 90s.

When I was in the third grade I remember watching a Halloween movie. The year was 1993 and I remember very little from the movie. I remember these kids going to another boys house, but he is being taken away in an ambulance, I think he was sick or something. The kids find a creepy old house and a ghost boy climbs up a tree and takes a pumpkin. I remember a man takes them through Halloween traditions in the past. Does anyone know what this movie was called?
There was a short cartoon I saw in the early 80s where every time the guy used a figure of speech, it would happen literally: I combed the beach (with an actual comb); I put my foot in my mouth (literally); She had a lot of little ones (tiny numeral 1s).
What was this science fiction movie from the early 80s or earlier? An earth man is undergoing a procedure by aliens (or future people) to make him super intelligent. I just remember the aliens chanting 'Think about the brain...think about the brain...' over and over again.
What was this science fiction show or movie I saw in the early 80s? There was this eclectic group of aliens, including, strangely, an earth cowboy. Some of the group were identical aliens who did everything exactly the same. When the cowboy offered an alien a hot dog, they all began chewing, and reciting the ingredients ("and artificial flavoring").
I need help with the title of a book my teacher read to my class in 5th grade, circa 1995. The only details I remember were it taking place in either the North or South Pole, and the main character killed a polar bear by shooting it in the head.
Trying to remember what product or service this 1990's infomercial was for. It started (in narration form) with a man about to board a plane in Chicago who then stops, changes his mind and walks away from getting on the plane - then the plane goes down in flames. Next was about a prediction from a woman that had to do with crying children in another part of the world. I forgot the rest of the commercial but does anyone remember it or remember what this was advertising for?
When any movies are shown on television, why are non offensive lines dubbed with another line? Ex. In the movie *batteries not included, Carlos says to Frank, "You kill my head, man." When the movie appeared on TV, the line was changed to, You make me sick, man."
I remember this moment from an '80s or '90s TV show. A woman tells another woman "Early is on time, on time is late, and late is unheard of." Then she walks away. I seem to remember that one or both women were black. Does anyone know what show it was?
I don't know what year this movie was made but I only seem to remember the ending of the movie. I remember a family staying at a house in the country, and they are all woken up one night and taken to a room downstairs. I remember a man comes in and some others follow. Then they take out some guns, and they all start shooting at the family members. I remember there was lots of blood in the scene as well especially on the wall behind them. The movie ends after but I want to know what this was from.
I remember seeing in the early 1970's a children's movie about a young boy who befriends a lion and his owner, an old man. In the story, a serial killer is murdering construction workers and throwing their bodies off a cliff. At the end of the movie, the lion has the serial killer trapped between two large rocks, the lion lunges, and the serial killer falls to his death off the cliff. Yes, it was a children's movie! Anybody know of it?
Looking for a comedy show sometime in the mid 80's. It was a family show and one scene I remember was a girl in the family who was sick, so they decide to make her some chicken soup. Instead of making her eat the soup out of a bowl, they have the soup in a huge metal pot. They put a towel over her head and stuck her head in the pot, so she could breathe in the smell in hopes of making her better. When asked how she feels, she says that she feels her face is melting off. Not Charles In Charge.
Looking for a video game for the PS4. The game takes place in outer space where a woman is trapped in a space station looking for survivors. She has the help of an AI built into the station. Eventually, she discovers that the space station is orbiting Saturn even though it shouldn't. When she asks the AI how she ended up near Saturn, he responds that he took her there although he doesn't know why.
I saw part of this movie and can't remember the title. A quiet, "pushover"-type man works at a bank inside a grocery store. He meets another guy who is a "wild and crazy" type. Possibly a past friend who he ran into again. There is a scene in which they are on a boat. The song "Sun Daze" by Florida-Georgia Line is playing. So this movie was made after 2014, when that song was released. Thank you.
What movie does an underage kid go to buy alcohol and is asked how old he is, and he holds up a $50 dollar bill and says "Fifty"?
Looking for something I saw on TV - set in the Wild west but might have been intended as a parody. Townspeople plead with a black man (played by Robert Townsend I think), a sort of man with no name type character to help them against a villain. The townspeople don't have much money, so they offer him a crack at "the town virgin"; the man insists on seeing a picture of her to decide if she's attractive enough (he asks, "She a dog? Let me see a picture.").
A few years ago I caught part of a TV show, and it was spoofing the end of Goodfellas - complete with the second movement of "Layla" by Derek and the Dominos - only it was using the California Raisins as characters. I specifically remember one of the raisins being shot, and it had purple blood. Anyone know what this was from?
I recently - in the last month or two - saw an advertisement for this TV show or movie. The plot involves bank technology failing. Everyone's credit and debit cards are basically useless.
What film is it where two people are fighting in a mostly black corridor over an automatic weapon, and it fires, making a semicircle of orange over their heads, illuminating the scene?
I remember watching a movie when I was younger around 1996 and a boy has a learning disability, and he becomes friends with a blind lady who is black. He tries to read but can't because the words look funny to him, so she teaches him Braille. I remember the old lady later dies and the boy becomes so upset that he runs away and finds his grandmother and stays with her until he feels ready to return home to his single mom. I think actress Della Reese was in it. What was this movie called?
