Mrs. A: What's the name of that show again?
Me: Eastbound & Down
Mrs. A: That's a weird name, hard to remember
Me: Not if you've seen Smoky & the Bandit, "Eastbound & Down, loaded up and trucking, we're gonna do what they say can't be done" (yes I was singing this part. Pluto got up and went to lay down in the hallway).
Mrs. A: I never saw that movie. Wasn't the Bandit a chimp or something?
Me: uh, well, the Bandit was Burt Reynolds.
Mrs. A: So yes, then!
Which made me remember exactly why I'd married her lo these 14 years ago!
I offered that she might be thinking of "Every which way but loose" where Clint Eastwood drove around with Clyde the orangutan, but she said she was thinking of a TV show, then I came up with "BJ and the Bear" but I couldn't remember whether it had an ape or a monkey or even which title character was the simian.
