Originally the first word in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show"'s theme song is "How," as in "How will you make it on your own?"

9/13 my mind went totally blank on some of these and I know that I know them. Didn't know the Friends theme but Laverne and Shirley tripped me up.

actually the 1st word in L & S is ONE.....because they count their steps.

Technically the first word in the Laverne & Shirley theme song is One because it starts out with them arm in arm saying One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight & then Schlemiel.

7/13; I was batting .500 on this one. I remember the refrains better than I do the first words.

I got all 13 but L&S almost tripped me up. I have listened to the real single many times and since "One" was not a choice I figured they were referring to the single which does begin with "We're"

11/13. Missed "Friends" and "Fresh Prince" because I never watched them.

Actually the Laverne and Shirley opening could be a bit of a trick. The girls count to 8 then say schlemiel with with a beat in the background. Some could argue that is the beginning of the song. And they would have a point. Plus it does sound a little like a lyric.
Have you listened to the Cyndi Grecco single? Schlemiel...." is not heard at all. So, the answer is correct.

Schlemiel is a yiddish word meaning the klutz who dumps soup on a person. Schmauzel is the yiddish word meaning the poor soul who gets the soup poured on.

13/13! A message to Stephanie: Looks like Metv agrees with me about the first word in the L&S theme. Also, a technical fowl on 12: It's "How" in the first season and "Who" in the last 6!
Technical foul on your "technical fowl." You used the wrong spelling. F-o-w-l, refers to any type of game bird: rooster, chicken, turkey, duck, etc. F-o-u-l means to make a mistake.
Ok Stephanie,you got me! As i've said before, if spellcheck doesn't catch it, I'll miss it!
