I got 10/13. I like anything that Harvey and Tim do together. They just go together like Laurel and Hardy.

9 of 13 This quizz was tougher than I thought it would be. However it did remind me of why I love novocaine.

8/13 Guessing the right answers was like pulling teeth! Maybe I had too much Novacaine on the brain.

Conway also did a version of this same sketch in one of theatrical movies. I don't offhand recall which one, though.

Was it "They Went That-A-Way and That-A-Way?" He did a dentist bit in that movie.
CaptainDunsel geatornez82 19 months ago
Yes! That's the one. I only saw part of it while channel-surfing, so I didn't know the title. But a quick look at IMDB confirmed it. Appreciate your backfilling my memory!
