Designing Women S4 E23 Extra Sugar - The Return of Southern Trivia

Updated: Jul 3, 2023

Let’s get ready to rumbbbbble! It’s time y’all, trivia time. In one corner, we have Nikki, calm, cool, collected. In the other, Salina, nervous, sweaty, and all over the place. Much like Highlander, there can be only one (or many if you count the people shouting the answer at their devices).


The winner will grab victory. The not winner will buy both of us brunch. And let’s get real, when bacon is involved, everyone's winning on some level. Play along with us: it’ll be fun.


Come on y’all, let’s get into it!




 

Transcript

Speaker A: Hey, Nikki.

Speaker A: Hey, Salina.

Speaker A: And hello everyone and welcome to this week's edition of Extra Sugar.

Speaker A: Hey, y'all.

Speaker A: This week we're going to do something we haven't done in quite some time.

Speaker A: What are we going to do, Salina?

Speaker A: You're going to pretend like you don't.

Speaker A: Yes.

Speaker A: It's important the people rely on me to be surprised.

Speaker A: Okay, good job.

Speaker A: Then we're going to break out the Southern trivia, which I don't think we've done in more than a year.

Speaker A: It's been a long time since I beat you in trivia.

Speaker A: It has been a while since you beat me in trivia.

Speaker A: Always sheer luck.

Speaker A: I like to end my weekend I like to both start and end my weekend by doing something to really just take a jab at my self esteem.

Speaker A: Feels good.

Speaker A: Yeah.

Speaker A: That way I both end the week and start the week on a low note and then it can only go up from there.

Speaker A: Yeah, that's it.

Speaker A: So I think this is going to go great.

Speaker A: Excellent.

Speaker A: Do believe that I've also been tasked with some steaks S-T-A-K-E-S which could also be steaks S-T-E-A-K-S.

Speaker A: It could depend.

Speaker A: I think we decided separately, even though you didn't know this was happening, that we were going to try and do some serious steaks this time.

Speaker A: I know that like cold hard cash.

Speaker A: I really didn't know this.

Speaker A: Okay, look, we're surprising you, but not really cold, hard cash because that's ridiculous.

Speaker A: But maybe something that translates to cash.

Speaker A: I was thinking about it and just based on the string of episodes we've had, this time the winner oh, sorry.

Speaker A: The loser either cooks or buys the other one breakfast or brunch.

Speaker A: It's so funny.

Speaker A: Did you write this down somewhere?

Speaker A: Is it lodged in my brain?

Speaker A: I don't think I did.

Speaker A: Because I was thinking this morning brunch would be a fun, but I feel like you did that for me today, but like, wrong.

Speaker A: No, it was delicious.

Speaker A: Buttery.

Speaker A: Yeah, I like that.

Speaker A: Yeah.

Speaker A: And we can get out of the house, one of us, if we have to.

Speaker A: Yeah, well, if we make it, we won't get out of the house.

Speaker A: Oh, right.

Speaker A: I guess I could throw it out in the street.

Speaker A: You know, I'm already assuming I'm losing, so just go ahead and be thinking about what kind of breakfast or brunch you might want.

Speaker A: Well, it's a real hit to my self esteem when I lose to you because you're so self effacing that I'm getting confident and then I lose and it all falls apart.

Speaker A: No, you'll win.

Speaker A: It's all good.

Speaker A: Breakfast or brunch.

Speaker A: The other one makes or buys.

Speaker A: Did you say or buy?

Speaker A: Yeah.

Speaker A: Do you want to make a decision on that now or should we just make a decision in the moment?

Speaker A: Let's make a decision in the moment when it feels right.

Speaker A: Just so you know, I'm leaning towards out.

Speaker A: Yeah.

Speaker A: So we get to experience something new.

Speaker A: That's right.

Speaker A: If we have and you've already had my brunch, so I've already done that to you very full.

Speaker A: I've done that.

Speaker A: Yeah, it was good.

Speaker A: Okay, so we also invite everyone else to play along.

Speaker A: Try out your hand at trivia.

Speaker A: That means, nikki, you have to answer slower.

Speaker A: Oh, okay.

Speaker A: Sorry.

Speaker A: One of us could probably answer faster, but I get all caught up.

Speaker A: Are you ready to play?

Speaker A: I'm ready.

Speaker A: Do we need to do like, an ink stink poop?

Speaker A: Fart out.

Speaker A: No, it's okay.

Speaker A: That's all right.

Speaker A: So who's going to go first then?

Speaker A: You can go first.

Speaker A: I'll ask of you first.

Speaker A: Oh, okay.

Speaker A: Is that okay?

Speaker A: Of course.

Speaker A: Okay, we have four categories.

Speaker A: Yes.

Speaker A: Do you want to play where we can just pick our category?

Speaker A: I just say whatever card you have on top first and we'll just go down the line.

Speaker A: Minor spread out in a row.

Speaker A: We're going to do start from reading sports and Culture.

Speaker A: That's perfect.

Speaker A: In 1912, the Girl Scouts were founded by Juliet Gordon Lowe.

Speaker A: In what city?

Speaker A: Savannah, Georgia.

Speaker A: That is incorrect.

Speaker A: Just kidding.

Speaker A: It's correct.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: It's correct.

Speaker A: I think last time we played like this was for the TV movie, a trivia one that we did, but we tried to do it without the ABCDE.

Speaker A: But we can read.

Speaker A: But we can't.

Speaker A: We can.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: Yeah, I don't think it has to be that hard.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: All right.

Speaker A: One for Salina.

Speaker A: That sounds good.

Speaker A: Okay, who's keeping count?

Speaker A: I can write it down.

Speaker A: George.

Speaker A: George class.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: Sorry.

Speaker A: I would, but I don't have a pen.

Speaker A: Salina, one, nikki, zero.

Speaker A: Do you want to because you haven't gone yet.

Speaker A: Do you want to pick your category or do you want me to just pick one for you?

Speaker A: Just pick one for me.

Speaker A: All right.

Speaker A: So sports and Culture was on top.

Speaker A: Sure.

Speaker A: It was just trying to be you.

Speaker A: All right.

Speaker A: Her face looks confused.

Speaker A: It's going to be a hard one because I'm not sure this is one we've had or not before.

Speaker A: We may have.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: What carnivorous plant is native to the wetlands of North Carolina?

Speaker A: We already had that one.

Speaker A: Okay, see, I thought we did.

Speaker A: Thank you for please.

Speaker A: Thank you for your honesty.

Speaker A: Should we do something where we hold all these ones that we've done to the side?

Speaker A: So just grab another.

Speaker A: Sports and culture.

Speaker A: You all like this.

Speaker A: It's real organic.

Speaker A: You know, it feels like you're right here in the middle.

Speaker A: They're in the room with us.

Speaker A: In the room.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: I don't think we've had this one.

Speaker A: I pulled it straight from the middle.

Speaker A: So if we did, that would be so nice that you say that, because this one is middleton place outside Charleston, South Carolina is known to explode into a riot of what?

Speaker A: Wintertime blooms.

Speaker A: Hold on.

Speaker A: I'm going to guess.

Speaker A: Can I get to guess?

Speaker A: And then if I'm not confident, then I can hear all of them.

Speaker A: Absolutely.

Speaker A: Queen settius.

Speaker A: Now I want to hear them all.

Speaker A: Okay, so it's A, camellias, b, daffodils, c, hydranges, or D, snowbells.

Speaker A: Oh, good Lord.

Speaker A: Middleton, South Carolina.

Speaker A: Wintertime blooms.

Speaker A: Wintertime blooms outside of Charleston.

Speaker A: I want to say daffodils.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: But I'm going to say camellias instead.

Speaker A: You're correct.

Speaker A: I think you changed it.

Speaker A: That is a good thing.

Speaker A: Good thing.

Speaker A: You changed.

Speaker A: Well, what I was waffling on is the Daffodil place here near us.

Speaker A: It's daffodils, right?

Speaker A: Let me tell you something, Nikki.

Speaker A: I thought snowbells were snowballs, so I may not be the one to ask.

Speaker A: So we have that place, the farm, just the staffodils.

Speaker A: Yeah.

Speaker A: Gibbs.

Speaker A: Gibbs Garden.

Speaker A: Thank you.

Speaker A: They do daffodils, and that's on the verge of spring and winter when those start coming out.

Speaker A: That's where I got confused.

Speaker A: Sure.

Speaker A: All right, we're going to do literature and ought.

Speaker A: Okay, next.

Speaker A: Probably ready to prove that I don't read.

Speaker A: Go on.

Speaker A: We've done this one before.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: The Ward brothers were all accomplished brothers.

Speaker A: Get out of here.

Speaker A: Decoys.

Speaker A: Is that the answer?

Speaker A: Decoys?

Speaker A: That's correct.

Speaker A: Okay, that's really going to do something to somebody's ears.

Speaker A: I think this is a good one.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: James Dickey.

Speaker A: Sorry, I know him.

Speaker A: I know him.

Speaker A: James Dickey was a National Book Award winner and poet, but he is perhaps most known for writing the novel that inspired what, 1972 film Deliverance?

Speaker A: Good job.

Speaker A: And you know why?

Speaker A: Because we've covered that right here on this podcast.

Speaker A: I call that full circle, is what I call that.

Speaker A: How about that?

Speaker A: Well done.

Speaker A: I wouldn't have gotten nukes.

Speaker A: Oh, I guess we're playing the game I was ready to probably play.

Speaker A: Yeah.

Speaker A: I was like, you know what, let's just wrap it up.

Speaker A: Just call it.

Speaker A: You won't get this reference, but I'll just be George and I'll just walk out.

Speaker A: Like, you just got to end on top.

Speaker A: I don't get that reference.

Speaker A: Yeah, I got it.

Speaker A: Enough context clues to know it was Seinfeld.

Speaker A: All right, here's what we're going to do.

Speaker A: We're going to travel in places for you this time.

Speaker A: We're going to check and see if you've had this one before.

Speaker A: I must have pulled from the side that we had already.

Speaker A: No, I don't think we had this one, but you'll tell me.

Speaker A: Okay, I'll tell you.

Speaker A: Okay, so the frying pan.

Speaker A: This is in quotes, okay.

Speaker A: Frying pan, a hulking steel structure off the coast of North Carolina, now operates as a research center and bed and breakfast in a space that was formerly a what a oh, do you want to take a full guess?

Speaker A: The frying pan.

Speaker A: Frying pan.

Speaker A: No.

Speaker A: That's interesting.

Speaker A: Okay, so a Coast Guard light tower.

Speaker A: This feels familiar to me.

Speaker A: You know what's hard, though?

Speaker A: We Google so much stuff for this.

Speaker A: True.

Speaker A: Who knows?

Speaker A: Who knows?

Speaker A: I don't remember this one.

Speaker A: If somebody is such a good listener that they do and we are unintentionally cheating right now, they can call us out.

Speaker A: Okay, that's true.

Speaker A: And then we'll just buy each other brunch.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: So it's a the Coast Guard light tower.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: B, cruise ship, c, oil rig, d, desert island Coast Guard thing.

Speaker A: Yeah.

Speaker A: You're so good at this.

Speaker A: Desert island was not going to be it, but it could have been an oil rig.

Speaker A: I thought about oil rig, but I don't know that.

Speaker A: North Carolina is known for its oil.

Speaker A: Right.

Speaker A: And why would it be shaped like a frying pan?

Speaker A: Because that's circular, right?

Speaker A: Yeah.

Speaker A: Anyways, I still think you're good at it.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: All right, thank you.

Speaker A: I'm scared.

Speaker A: This next one.

Speaker A: I'm going to save that one for last.

Speaker A: I'm going to do travel in places.

Speaker A: I don't want to be afraid anymore.

Speaker A: Okay, go on.

Speaker A: What spot in North Carolina was made famous by Orville and Wilbur Wright when they took off from here on their first flights?

Speaker A: I think we did have this one.

Speaker A: Did we have it?

Speaker A: This is one of those things.

Speaker A: Dude.

Speaker A: We have it.

Speaker A: Did we learn it in school?

Speaker A: It's kitty hawk.

Speaker A: I did know that one, but also we did it.

Speaker A: Okay, let's try another one.

Speaker A: And if it's too hard, we'll just give you credit for that one because that could have been real nice.

Speaker A: That could have just been learning in school, too.

Speaker A: It's hard to know.

Speaker A: I'm pretty sure we had that one, which I want to say, can we get some kind of Medal of Honor for this memory?

Speaker A: Iron clad memory that we're showing off right now?

Speaker A: Which of these is not a Southern state capital?

Speaker A: Jackson, Pensacola, Columbia or Nashville?

Speaker A: Pensacola.

Speaker A: That is correct.

Speaker A: Well done.

Speaker A: What happens if we tie?

Speaker A: What do you say we just go to brunch?

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: You know what we haven't done this year?

Speaker A: Or season?

Speaker A: An activity.

Speaker A: We haven't had our activity at our scheduled fun.

Speaker A: And let me tell you something, I don't even know how to have fun until it's scheduled.

Speaker A: What's the word?

Speaker A: Spontaneous scheduled fun?

Speaker A: Yeah, spontaneous scheduled fun.

Speaker A: Oh, that's so crazy.

Speaker A: Okay, next category is literature and arts.

Speaker A: I think we may have had this one, but I'm going to say it.

Speaker A: Let's just see.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: All right.

Speaker A: We may have an ironclad memory, but we have p*** poor planning if this doesn't make for good listening, is what it is.

Speaker A: We're doing the best we can.

Speaker A: I mean, I'm having a good time.

Speaker A: My wound is geography.

Speaker A: It is also my anchorage.

Speaker A: My port of call is the opening line.

Speaker A: Of what?

Speaker A: Pat Conroy novel.

Speaker A: Oh, we've definitely had this before.

Speaker A: You want to call it, though?

Speaker A: Do I want to say which one it is?

Speaker A: I mean, I don't remember.

Speaker A: You'd have to give me the answers.

Speaker A: Okay, so it's the Great Santini, the Prince of Tides.

Speaker A: That one.

Speaker A: No, keep it.

Speaker A: Night in the garden of good and evil Or Charleston walks.

Speaker A: The Prince of Tides.

Speaker A: That's right.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: I gave you a new one here just in case.

Speaker A: Thank you, ma'am.

Speaker A: You're welcome.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: Legend has it that this blues guitarist sold his soul to the devil in 1964 at the crossroads of US 61 and US.

Speaker A: 49 in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

Speaker A: My goodness.

Speaker A: Would you like the answers on yes, please.

Speaker A: How is your blue?

Speaker A: Like BB.

Speaker A: King is probably the extent of what I know.

Speaker A: So A, Robert Johnson, B, Mississippi, John Hurt, c, Eddie James Son House Jr.

Speaker A: And that's S-O-N.

Speaker A: Or D Aaron Thabo T bone Walker, which I'm really hoping I'm getting that pronunciation.

Speaker A: It's T-H-I-B-T it's tebow, probably.

Speaker A: Or Tebow.

Speaker A: Yeah, big fan.

Speaker A: Sorry, Mr.

Speaker A: Tebow.

Speaker A: Oh, this is embarrassing.

Speaker A: I'm going to go with B.

Speaker A: I'm sorry.

Speaker A: Dang it.

Speaker A: There's no way.

Speaker A: But I like that one, though, because that sounds more like a blues name.

Speaker A: Robert Johnson.

Speaker A: Is it Robert Johnson?

Speaker A: Yeah.

Speaker A: Gosh darn it.

Speaker A: Sorry, Robbie, I don't like your name.

Speaker A: Your name is lovely.

Speaker A: It's not very bluesy sounding.

Speaker A: Okay, your last one then is food and drink.

Speaker A: Your last one.

Speaker A: This is almost unfair.

Speaker A: Okay, this is unfair.

Speaker A: But you know what's really unfair?

Speaker A: What's?

Speaker A: That I'm such a screw up that I'll probably get it wrong.

Speaker A: If you get this wrong, Salina, I would personally slap you.

Speaker A: It was the first thing that came to mind.

Speaker A: I was like, I will.

Speaker A: I would just gut you like a fish.

Speaker A: Still buy you brunch.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: Cafe Dumont in New Orleans French Quarter is famous for what?

Speaker A: Sweet treat?

Speaker A: Beignets.

Speaker A: I hate you so much.

Speaker A: I'm so sorry.

Speaker A: What were the other options?

Speaker A: Garbage, cookies, cookies, gumbo, rock candy and beignets.

Speaker A: Okay, so I have another food and drink out already in case.

Speaker A: I mean, it doesn't matter now.

Speaker A: I can't win.

Speaker A: I've lost.

Speaker A: You got all four of yours, right?

Speaker A: Because, you know, I got the blues guitarist, which was totally fair.

Speaker A: And you got beignets in New Orleans.

Speaker A: That's cool.

Speaker A: It's cool.

Speaker A: I was fine.

Speaker A: Nikki's not going to talk to me for a week.

Speaker A: Okay.

Speaker A: We could do double or nothing with an extra one.

Speaker A: That's fine.

Speaker A: I know how to walk away.

Speaker A: Let's find out how badly I lose Dub.

Speaker A: The oldest soul food restaurant in the world, the Florida Avenue Grill, is located where?

Speaker A: This sounds like trick.

Speaker A: Okay, it's not going to be in Florida.

Speaker A: It's going to be in like, Appalachicola.

Speaker A: A miami, Florida B, Harlem, New York.

Speaker A: C.

Speaker A: Clarksdale, Tennessee d washington, DC.

Speaker A: Before you answer, would you like me to repeat the question?

Speaker A: Yes, please.

Speaker A: Dubbed the oldest soul food restaurant in the world, in the world, the Florida Avenue Grill is located where would you like to google?

Speaker A: Yes, please.

Speaker A: I'm going to say something controversial.

Speaker A: Yeah, I want to guess.

Speaker A: Washington, DC.

Speaker A: You are correct.

Speaker A: Sorry, guys.

Speaker A: All right, so I only lost by one, which oh, darn it, now I've looked at it.

Speaker A: All right, so I owe Salina brunch somewhere.

Speaker A: So in addition to purchasing the brunch.

Speaker A: I also, I guess, then have to figure out when and where we're going to go.

Speaker A: I'm happy you don't have to pay for it or pick out the place.

Speaker A: I mean, you could just go out to brunch.

Speaker A: That was our agreement, was that I would pay for it.

Speaker A: All right, so brunch it is.

Speaker A: Is there a time limit?

Speaker A: Like when it has to happen?

Speaker A: I mean, could it be next year?

Speaker A: In the calendar?

Speaker A: Year will be nice.

Speaker A: Darn it.

Speaker A: Okay, all right.

Speaker A: Maybe the summer too limiting.

Speaker A: Maybe there are only so many weekends in the year.

Speaker A: All right, we'll figure it out.

Speaker A: We'll figure it out.

Speaker A: I owe you brunch.

Speaker A: That'll be fun.

Speaker A: It'll be a fine, spontaneous, planned vacation trip thing.

Speaker A: Excursion.

Speaker A: That's fun.

Speaker A: Salina.

Speaker A: Well done, Miami.

Speaker A: Go.

Speaker A: I'll be back for blood next time.

Speaker A: Very afraid.

Speaker A: And you think I'm kidding, but I'm not.

Speaker A: So you all know the drill.
