Did she see the movie?

Category: Title Movie Characters
Clue: In 1984, in the first of the films featuring this character, he only has 21 lines, for a total of 133 words.

One contestant wrote nothing (which I would have done). The next wrote the correct answer - the Terminator - at which I kicked myself.

The champion, who couldn't be caught and whose hefty wager wasn't enough to make her lose, wrote ... Indiana Jones.

Indiana Jones? 133 words? 133 thousand maybe. Indy's chatty and the movie's long. Wow.

I don't know if she thought it was right or was just flailing around for a movie franchise named for a character that started in 1984 - which, by the way, was not Indiana Jones on either count; the first film was in 1981 and it was named Raiders of the Lost Ark, not Indiana Jones and ..., which came with the release of the VHS box set - but that one would never have crossed my mind, though I might have stumbled on the exact year of its release. 21 lines... I think he has more that 21 lines in the Amazon bit at the beginning of the movie!

We both drew a blank on the Final Jeopardy clue, too. Of course, we're not movie-goers by nature.
