Famous Pop-Culture Dartmouth references

<p>Just another ploy to keep the posts coming (stolen from the Brown board)! Can anyone think of famous Dartmouth references?</p>

<p>Here's three:</p>

<p>The Simpsons: Homer's beer song...he says "Drinking like a Dartmouth boy"</p>

<p>Can't Hardly Wait: The main character (Preston?) is going to Dartmouth.</p>

<p>She's All That: Freddy Prinze's character is headed to Dartmouth...</p>

<p>A River Runs Through It: One of the brothers goes to Dartmouth.</p>

<p>President Bartlett from The West Wing is a former Dartmouth professor (and nobel laureate)</p>

<p>oh, and Tina Fey once made a reference to meeting up with Dartmouth alums to eat flan on SNL</p>

<p>In the movie "The Skulls," Dartmouth's boathouse is pawned off as Yale's (or a Yale-like school's). </p>

<p>Of course, Animal House, based on the experiences of Chris Miller '63.</p>

<p>In Tom Wolfe's latest "I am Charlotte Simmons," he mentions a book written by Dartmouth professor Michael Gazzaniga '61.</p>

<p>Any book on the 10th Mountain Division (I believe it's the 10th) from WWII will feature Dartmouth and Dartmouth alums prominently, as many of its alums served in the "ski corps."</p>

<p>Michael Corleone and his wife are Dartmouth '42.</p>

<p>In another Simpsons episode, the one where Moe is in the bartender contest, Duffman mentions that one of the competitions is redeemable for credit at Dartmouth.</p>

<p>Slipper, River Runs Through It was written by a D guy...autobiographic, I believe.</p>

<p>That would be Norman Maclean '24</p>

<p>The Gatekeepers, written by a D alum</p>

<p>Red Leaves, fiction novel set at Dartmouth.</p>

<p>I can't believe that no one else has said this...either that or I am just really pathetic.</p>

<p>A character on Dawson's Creek (Andi?)was trying to get into Dartmouth.</p>

<p>i think some character or other in The V Club by Kate Brian was trying to get into Dartmouth. (if you haven't read that book, you absolutely should. it is fantastic, hilarious, and extremely realistic. DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT THE INNER FLAP SUMMARY SAYS. just trust me. the book is great for girls AND boys)</p>

<p>Xanatos- how was Corleone's wife a '42? it was all male...</p>

<p>You'll have to ask Francis Ford Coppola.</p>

<p>Sofia Coppola is wayyyy hot. Sadly, her college pop culture reference is to Yale (Charlotte from Lost in Translation was a philosophy major).</p>

<p>I can't really think of any, but I didn't know about many colleges until last year, and my pop culture cross-reference hasn't been that extensive since then.</p>

<p>No....Andi was trying to get into HARVARD</p>

<p>goodbye columbus ..richard benjamins character pawns off two annoying guests at a party by intoducing brown meet dartmouth</p>

<p>I think she was supposed to be a Hanover townie.</p>
