Another weekend is upon us, and you know what that means puzzle fans! But between Thanksgiving and the pressure to "Buy, BUY, BUY!" coming from retailers, I thought it best to take it a little easy on everyone this go around.
So can you name the TV show these famous opening lines came from?

01. "You unlock this door with the key of imagination."
02. "He awoke to find himself trapped in the past."
03. "But in that darkness, fate moves its huge hand."
04. "We travel through time to help history along."
05. "To seek out new life and new civilizations."

Tune in next weekend and find out if you're right. Meanwhile, let's peek into THE ANSWERS BOX and see the results from November 20's Puzzle Corner.

According to the song (and I played the track on the Songs You Know By Heart CD THREE times to confirm this), Jimmy Buffet is "not too particular, not too precise" but a Cheeseburger in Paradise includes: bun, "a huge hunk of meat" cooked medium rare, onion slice, lettuce, tomatoes, mustard AND Heinz 57 sauce; served with french fried potatoes, a kosher dill pickle, and a cold draft beer.

From the letters in the word THANKSGIVING, one can spell: a, ah, an, as, at, gain(s), giant(s), gait, gas, giving, gnat(s), hag(s), has, hat(s), having, Hi (and acceptable short form of Hello), his, hit(s), I, in, inn(s), is, isn't (the contraction of is not), it, its, it's (short for it is), king(s), kin, kit(s), knight(s), knit(s), nay, night(s), sag, saint, sat, sin, sink, sit, sink, tan(s), tank(s), than, thank(s), thin(s), think(s), this, 'Tis, vain, AND visit.
