Arnold from Happy days...Arnold from Hey Arnold...Arnold from Whatchu Talkin' Bout Willis? Never came up with the Governor. But that wasn't really a catch phrase, which would entail saying it repeatedly. It was one line in a movie.

I kept typing Get Back and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work. Turns out, it wouldn't work because it was wrong.

Thank you for not including Nickelback...and I could only think of Arnold from the cartoon Key Arnold....never seen any terminator movies.

Since the question is phrased "What the empire did", the answer should be STRIKE back. Grammatically speaking.

Stuck back is just a silly answer to this question. The question would be improved if the required answer was "Strikes back", because that was the name of the film after all.

Would've gotten 20/20, but could only think of Montana being known as The Comeback Kid.

Is backstroke really an event? Shouldn't it be just a stroke or something?

"Antagonistic reaction to a trend" sounds so non-specific; "pushback" seems like a totally valid answer as well.

Maybe accept "Strike Back" for what the empire did? Struck back is awfully specific and the idea is the same

I eventually got it but spent a lot of time trying to get 'back in time' to work for Marty McFly. Yes, the movie title is the better answer but I couldn't get the Huey Lewis song out of my head.

The person who created the quiz last created a quiz in 2013. So it is likely he/she is gone so I doubt any of you are going see any changes. Strikes vs Struck - stupid. If we are really going to accept the past tense then the answer should be "lost".

Definitely should use a different QB than the Comeback Kid. I was stuck on his nickname and couldn't think of why it was wrong.

Never heard of Baby Back, given that this franchise doesn't exist in Australia.
