Ridiculous Board Games: Live from Birmingham (winner!)

Update #3: We have a winner!

A lot of you were close. But it took 596 comments before Joe Maz finally guessed the right quote. I'll be in touch about your free t-shirt.
"A,B,C. A: Always. B: Be. C: Closing. Always be closing. ALWAYS BE CLOSING."

If you're OK with coarse language and yelling, here's that classic Glengarry Glen Ross scene on YouTube.

I do have a few more t-shirts to give away. Office Hours are almost over, so let's give free shirts to the first three people to ask politely via IM. Again, my screen name is flossyjason. Talk soon.


Update #1:

Nobody has even guessed the movie the secret quote is from. Here's your first hint: the movie was released after 1990. By the way, every time we give a hint, everybody gets all four of their guesses back.

Update #2:

One person in the 400s got the right movie. The right actor. The right scene, even. But not the quote.

I like spending time in new cities. So much to explore, from new radio stations (though we've listened almost exclusively to the Dodge Avenger's Sirius Satellite) to unfamiliar local banks (though it seems like Wachovia owns everything down here).

Well, at least the whiteboard in the mental_floss Birmingham office is new and exciting. So let's play another round of our favorite ridiculous t-shirt giveaway. Today's topic: movie quotes.

Once again, the rules:
1) This is a complete game of chance, the equivalent of saying "We chose a number between 1 and 1,000,000. Guess." But simply drawing a number would get repetitive. So today I've written a movie quote on the board. Your job is to decide which one.

2) You may guess four times, but all four guesses must be in separate comments.

3) Along with one of your guesses, tell us which t-shirt you'd like if you win (browse our store).

4) Comments don't appear on the site until we moderate them. But we'll be able to tell who was the first successful guesser.

If nobody's guessed correctly by tonight, I'll give a few hints. (And if you're still lost, here's a previous installment.) Best of luck!

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.


Barnes & Noble's special edition Mister Rogers Funko Pop!

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
