BIG NEWS guys! Large Marge Sent Us has just hit 50 episodes and The Sweeties couldn't be more proud! In honor of such an amazing milestone, we thought it was time to trot out the movie that Sweetie deems responsible for shaping her childhood.... THE GOONIES. Is there a better movie out there that captures 12 year old hijinks involving: a one eyed pirate, an Italian crime family, and a deformed possibly 40 year old with an unfortunate nickname? And no, this isn't the plot of The Godfather. We laughed, we cried, we argued about whether One Eyed Willy's boody, I mean booby traps would have ever really worked, the truth behind Sloth's deformities, clarify a list of Chunk's bullshit stories, and come up with an idea for a prequel which involves the life of Chester Copperpot (also our next Team Trivia name btw) and how he came to an unfortunate end (or did he???) searching for all that rich stuff. BONUS, we talk to the one, the only Hayley Nickerson (Sweetie's bff) about her love for The Goonies and make her prove if she's really a Goonie with a short quiz. Thanks to our amazing listeners for helping us get to Episode 5-0! We love ya!
