Saturday Nine: As Long As We Got Each Other (1986)

Saturday, June 17, 2017
This week's Saturday Nine:

  1. This is the theme from the 1980s sitcom, Growing Pains. Alan Thicke played Dr. Jason Seaver, one of TVs popular dads. Who is your favourite TV dad? Keith Mars from Veronica Mars.

  2. Joanna Kearns, who played Jason's wife, reports that she teased her costar by calling him, "Al," a nickname he hated. Is there someone in your life that you enjoy needling? My friend Chelsea. She does or says such ridiculous things sometimes that it's hard not to mock her constantly.

  3. For most of the series, the Seaver children each represented a "type." The oldest, Mike, was the trouble maker. The daughter, Carol, was the brainiac. Young Ben could be very high maintenance. Which of the Seaver kids were you most like when you were growing up? Probably Carol. I wasn't really a trouble maker when I was a kid. I was actually pretty introverted up until high school. I just liked art and music and kinda kept to myself.

  4. In the song, BJ Thomas sings about being "the luckiest dreamer who never quit dreaming." If you could have any dream come true this Saturday, what would you wish for? To somehow win, find, or inherit millions of dollars so I could travel the world, own a home, open up my own makeup studio or start a makeup line, and make sure my family is set for life.

  5. When he mans the grill, Sam's father proudly wears the "Kiss the Chef" she gave him for Father's Day years ago. Tell us about a gift you gave someone that was a hit. I bought my friend Ronsee a Jack Spade card holder last year for his birthday 'cause he lost his wallet years ago and never replaced it. He's used it everyday since I gave it to him.

  6. Sam's dad takes his grilling very seriously and jealously guards his special marinade recipe. Do you have a secret you haven't even shared with family members? No, 'cause that would mean that I actually cook.

  7. He recommends using a grill basket when barbecuing vegetables so you don't have to worry about them falling through the grill. Share one of your culinary tips with us. Butter the bread for sandwiches. It always tastes better.

  8. Sam's father hates it when she swears. What's the last curse word you used? Probably "fuck."

  9. Sam's father satisfies his afternoon sugar craving with an almost endless stream of Butter Rum Lifesavers. When you crave a snack, do you usually want something sweet or salty? Salty. The only time I really care for sweets is after a salty meal.
