Question: Applejack quote


Haven't seen this movie in years. Hoping someone could help me out.

Just looking for a quote from this movie. On the quiz show, somebody asks a question, and the response is "applejack". Then Dexter starts spouting off "Applejack, [blah, blah, blah] ..." (info. he inadvertently got from the computer, chronicling the "bad guy's" shady deals.)

Does anybody know the series of stuff he spouts off?

Thanks!

Well, if I remember correctly, he said it like this!

(two beeps)
Dexter: APPLEJACK, CHISOLM CITY SOCIAL CLUB 1-3-7-FEB-2-9, ANIMALS: 7-4-0, TABLES: 6-0-0, AMUSEMENTS: 5-0-0!
(two beeps)
Dexter: APPLEJACK, POMPEY PALACE 1-3-8-FEB-2-9, ANIMALS: 7-4-0!
(two beeps)
Dexter: APPLEJACK, CHARLIE PLACE...

After that Richard Schuyler kind of shook him out of it and the moderator said, "Are you allright, Mr. Reilly?" And Dexter said, "Yeah, sure...what was I talking about?"

And that's it of that scene, unless you include the parts that came before the part where A.J. Arno's (the bad guy played by Cesar Romero) on the phone and says to long distance "What? No, I don't know the area code!"

Apple Jack is a form of harder apple cider that is alcholic. That is the origin of the term.

When Dexter Reilly had that shock not only did he become a computer genius, and knew alot of things stored in it. However he also had other things installed in him too that is, Listings of Applejack, which were illegal bookie and gambling operations owned by AJ Arno and Cookie and they make their money from gambling that people lose at in horse races and more. That was recently stored in it before the computer was donated to Medfield College and before Dexter got the shock and info from the computer got transfered to Dexters Brain.

Plus since this took place in 1969, PC computers didn't exist yet like what many people have. Only very large big ones were around then. Like the one called ERIC that was on I Dream of Jeannie in which Tony and Roger used to get Jeannies birthday after feeding it information. PC computers didn't come in until around 1976 when the first Apple and Radio Shack came out. Yes Radio Shacks had different computers of their own until 1985 when the Tandy 1000 was the first IBM compatable. Same time as old Kaypro Atari and Commodore 64 came out.

Always put a spoiler alert notice on 45-year-old movies.
