Lori’s Childhood Trivia: Schoolhouse Rock

September 24, 2008

in Lori's Childhood Trivia

Shakin’ it up for Round 8. Instead of a contest, let’s have a collaboration.

I’ve thrown out a clue: Schoolhouse Rock. Now y’all give me lines. One per comment, and one comment per day, please.

No googling! Let’s see how deeply we can milk our memories for lines from Schoolhouse Rock.

Shall we see if we can get to 20?

By entering a line in a comment, you are eligible to grab the LCT button and add it to your bloggy bling. You can either copy the image and link to this hyperlink, or get the code here.

Now. How long will it take for Lolly and her adverbs to get here?

(Rounds 1-7 and assorted memories can be found here.)
