Treasury (did not recognize Kennedy in the picture)
Dvorak (can't keep him, Chopin, and Liszt straight)
Gulf of Mexico (nothing about the clue, including the correct response, was familiar; I wanted to have something and the only other idea I had was the Panama Canal)

Have seen the movie The Fugitive, but none of any TV version.

Couldn't come up with any reasonable guesses on Monday or Friday. Men in Black on Thursday.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I know there's a Lake Nicaragua, but that doesn't help much when I think of every Central American country except Nicaragua.

Have seen The Fugitive movie, more than once, but don’t think I ever saw the TV show.

Did not recognize the volcanoes, but they led me to think of them being located in a lake, which helped.

Seen The Fugitive movie, not one episode of the show.

I walked into the room too late to hear the Monday FJ question read, and at first glance I thought they were showing JFK.

I wanted to post a sepia-tone snapshot here in honor of the Tues FJ. My LEGO TR posed on horseback outside La Castaneda in Las Vegas, NM, the site of that 1899 reunion, but I don't think I have the skill to get it out of my phone's photo gallery. :roll: Oh, well!

Got lucky on Fri...wrote the correct response, then thought...Wait, is there such a thing? I know there's a Lake Managua, I must be thinking of that... But I had nothing better, so I stuck with it... :D
"The Fugitive" was a favorite in my household growing up. We were glued to the screen for the last episode when the series was resolved. So were a huge slice of other viewers - the highest rated TV series episode up to that time. The movie? Ehhh...Doubt I would have remembered that TLJ won the Oscar if it wasn't for the TV hint.

8/8 second week in a row! I didn’t know the volcanoes in Lake Nicaragua but I know The Rolling Stones played a benefit concert in 1973 or so after an eruption ruined Managua. I think I’ll do well this coming week unless they ask about really recent music or some awful CW tv show.

The first to were pretty quick gets. The rest of the FJs were not going to happen.

Extra clues? Lit, lit, and the history of Eastern European geography? Not a chance for me.

The CW has some good shows. The ones with illusionists or the improv specialists. For the regular line-up I hear you although I enjoy Riverdale.

For the music here's two that could appear: "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran and "Wait" by Maroon 5

I usually don't participate in this thread, though I do check it out, but I need to chime in to extol the virtues of The Fugitive, both the original series and the movie. I'm with Davey in that the show was must watch family viewing back in the early 60s and, yes, we're both showing our age. I have the two part finale on dvd and I do watch every few years. Still beats almost all of the stuff on network tv these days, though I have to admit there's a lot of brilliant stuff elsewhere. As for the movie, I love it! Not one of my personal "ten best" but certainly one of my ten "most enjoyable". Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones and the rest of the ensemble (Gerard's whole team and those idiot Chicago cops) are terrific! I just may stay up late and watch again.
As for the scoring, I had a very good week, getting all the FJs with ease and missing only the third extra. Would that it be so always!

Need to get better at Central America; it comes up a lot.

Saw “The Fugitive” movie on its theatrical release; did not see the TV series in first run (before my time) but have seen a few episodes in syndication.

Was shocked at the stand-and-stare for “Henry V”; maybe Shakespeare’s most famous passage after Hamlet’s “To be or not to be” soliloquy. Maybe the “St. Crispin’s Day” clue threw them off?

I recognized that it was a Kennedy, and then "this cabinet department" made me realize it was RFK, but I was looking for a department that filled "Secretary of ______" so I was doomed to miss.

This is the first time I can recall hearing of the "St. Crispin's Day" speech, and am willing to contend that "Is this a dagger which I see before me," "All the world's a stage," and "Has not a Jew eyes" are more famous than it.

I didn't realize how close I was to my first ever 5/5.

I'm getting better, anyway. I knew that there was a pavlov for polish composer, but I couldn't pull it. I was trying for a polish sounding name.
