SCTV – High Q

An Alex Trebek-clone quizzes high school youngsters in this SCTV skit. This is diverse than the “Night School High Q” that can be discovered elsewhere on YouTube. As an aside, I have been crazy about Catherine O’Hara for several years and her portrayal of Margaret Meehan in this skit was one of the 1st times I saw her. I predict that you, too, will fall under Margaret Meehan’s spell!

    This is more like “In the Know” on PBS
    “Well that’s what I meant”
    “Well you didn’t say that!”
    The way she says
    “the Beatles”
    Hahahahaha!

    @devtrev I think it was just a smart alec made up name that a high school student might give .. but it isnt funny if you have to explain it .. like I just did ..

    I love how John Candy’s character is named Peter Townsend for absolutely no reason – and it’s spelled wrong to boot. Genius.

    A $250 college scholarship? That wouldn’t pay for half your books for one semester. RIP John Candy.

  14. miniredsatan says:

  15. fredhetz says:

    @miniredsatan, you should know that I wish to marry Margaret Meehan. When the wedding takes place, you will be invited.

  16. miniredsatan says:

    margaret meehan is GOD!! henry miller?? victor hugo? hahahahaha…..oh, 30 years old and still CLASSIC!

  17. fredhetz says:

    @logancody05, you’re exactly right. Levy has always gotten the most out of his face, including his eyes.

  18. logancody05 says:

    Watch it again, and if you haven’t already done so, concentrate on Eugene Levy’s eyes. They’re extremely expressive, and bring home the full array of emotions that Alex is experiencing.

    @GlobalPunditOrg, I thrive on minutiae, especially when it concerns Catherine O’Hara! Thank you.

  24. GlobalPunditOrg says:

    @fredhetz the name of the ‘character’ O’Hara played was also the actual name of her mother – & the school she went to!…minutiae, but hey!…
