The Puzzler


RAY: Both the Ferrari and a Renault were featured performers in a movie that we've all heard of, and most have perhaps seen.

TOM: Almost everyone has seen it. Even Catherine Patootie Ray, who is a mere child, thinks that this is one of the greatest movies ever made, and she's right.

RAY: It is. It was a war time movie.

TOM: It was.

RAY: And it took place in Africa.

TOM: Yes, it did.

RAY: And the name of the movie is Casablanca.

TOM: Yes.

RAY: And the Renault and the Ferrari are not in fact cars.

TOM: No.

RAY: They are Louie Renault, who was the police captain of Casablanca.

TOM: Yeah.

RAY: And the owner of the blue parrot I believe, Monsieur Ferrari.

TOM: Whooo, see actually, I thought when I saw the movie the other night that Peter Lorre's name in the movie was Bugatti.

RAY: No, that was Bullfeathers.

TOM: And I thought there were three famous cars, a Ferrari, a Renault, and a Bugatti. But it turns out that his name was not Bugatti but Ugardi.

RAY: No, Johnson I think.

TOM: Or Johnson, yeah.

RAY: Hey, who's our winner Tommy?

TOM: The winner is Kelly McCormack from Knoxville, Tennessee.
