mondays

okay...

and here are the
answers to your
"Five for Friday!"

1. One of the snippets, spoken en Francais, translates, roughly, to "There's always money in the Banana Stand." This is a key phrase from which critically-acclaimed, Craig-adored, cancelled, then revived, then cancelled again, then revived again, Fox sitcom?

-- Arrested Development

2. "There are 178 parent languages on our planet with over 1000 dialects...It's amazing we communicate at all." is a line/lyric from what incredibly obscure MTV-era, 80s song by Ebn/Ozn?

-- AEIOUandsometimesY
(youtube it--it's...interesting...)

3. In one of Gef's comments, he is most definitely all wet. Which one?

-- "Polo!"  (Marco Polo is a game you play with your eyes closed in a pool)

4. Inside the book, Gef needs to be in possession of which character's Staff/Talisman to be able to control and amplify his bi-location abilities?

-- Cuttle, the Aboriginal Shaman who can communicate with the Earth--Mother Gaia--through the use of his Totem.

5. In one of these snippets, Gef reveals to us that he can appear in not only two places at the same time, and two times at the same time, but also has found himself enveloped in songs. What song would Gef be in if he were...

a. "...down at Dino's Bar and Grill, the drink will flow and blood will spill and if the Boys wanna fight, you'd better let 'em."?

-- "The Boys are Back in Town"--Thin Lizzy

b. ...watching Mary dance across the porch while Roy Orbison was singing on the radio...?

-- "Thunder Road"--Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

c.  "...Nibblin' on sponge cake, watchin' the sun bake all those tourists covered with oil"?

-- "Margaritaville"--Jimmy Buffett

d. ...working for a time at a five and dime, his Boss was Mr. McGee...?

-- "Raspberry Beret"--Prince  

e. ...lookin' back on when he was a little nappy-headed boy...?

-- "I Wish"--Stevie Wonder

Don't think I could have got the answer to No. 2 if the quiz was open internet.

Yeah, that was pretty obscure, Brian--and in trivia circles would be considered very difficult. I usually try to keep 'em in the possible categories, but that one had to be. Sorry.
