Quote(s) of the Day 2: Overboard

Dean Proffitt: You know what your problem is? You are so goddamn bored, you have to invent things to bitch about! You don’t have a single thing to do on this earth except for your hair! The closet was fine, you just needed something to fill up your useless, nail-polishing, toe-polishing, rich bitch, sun-tanning days!


Annie: Tell me something about my life, Dean, something not horrible.

Dean Proffitt: Well uh… yeah, there was that time you were working at Burger Boy, and this kid started choking on a French fry, and everybody in the place panicked, including me, except you, you knew exactly what to do. You ran over to the kid and you gave him that Heimlech, you know,

[grunts]

Dean Proffitt: and puh! The kid puked up the fry and they named you Burger Boy employee of the month. They put your picture above the cash register and everything.

Last Question: Which singer performed the vocals for ‘The Love Boat’ from 1977 to 1985?

A. Jack Jones

He performed “The Love Boat” theme, and then recorded a disco version of the song for his 1979 album Nobody Does it Better. Since 1980, Jones has recorded only a handful of albums.

Here is the opening theme of The Love Boat:
