Welcome to the Labor Day weekend edition of The Puzzle Corner. We'll try not to strain your brain too hard.

This is the debut of a BRAND NEW GAME! A famous quote is repeated below, or is it?
All you have to do is say whether or not the quote is accurate. Ready?

From the 1977 movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind:
"We are ready on the dark side of the moon. Play the five notes."

We haven't played this is quite a while, but the rules remain the same.
Two separate things have been combined to create a new item. Can you figure out what it is, based upon the clue below?

Celebrations of life on a daytime soap opera?

We'll reveal all next weekend. Meanwhile, let's take a look inside THE ANSWERS BOX and reveal the results from our Linda Ronstadt quiz from the August 24, 2013 Puzzle Corner.
