RAY: Hi, we're back. You're listening to Car Talk with us, Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, and we're here to discuss cars, car repair, and of course the new puzzler.
TOM: I can hardly wait.
RAY: Well, I wouldn't attach that much weight to this. All right.
TOM: America sits by their radios week after week waiting.
RAY: And you don't know how that weighs heavily on my mind.
TOM: I do. I do.
RAY: When every week I have to come up with a quasi-acceptable puzzler.
TOM: I know. That's right.
RAY: Something that will challenge the seven Americans that listen to our show.
TOM: It's an awesome responsibility.
RAY: It is. I can't do it anymore.
TOM: Especially when there is one, as you say this one is quasi-automotive, and someone comes in saying yes, master. Yeah, go for it man! Go! Go!.
RAY: I'll have to phrase it correctly. In what famous movie were a Ferrari and a Renault both featured?
TOM: A Ferrari and a Renault. Feature roles, featured roles, yeah.
RAY: I might add these weren't just passing scenes. I mean these were featured.
TOM: Yeah, there weren't just like drive-ons.
TOM: Exactly. These were featured prominently.
RAY: In many scenes. Almost every scene of the movie, one or the other was in it.
TOM: A Renault and a Ferrari. Excellent.
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.
RAY: And the Renault and the Ferrari are not in fact cars.
RAY: They are Louie Renault, who was the police captain of Casablanca.
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.
