My bf always asks if I'm okay, and it's frustrating.

I don't like being asked on such a regular basis (five times or more a day) if I'm okay. I just want to go about my normal activities and feel my normal range of emotions without having to be self-conscious about it. I know he means well, but I feel like if I'm not always smiling and outwardly placid -- like if I'm trying to find something in the house or concentrating intently on writing an email -- then something is wrong, the kind of wrong that I suddenly have to open up and talk about to placate his need to know if I'm okay. 98 percent of the time, I am fine. I'm not a naturally perky person, and I'm a bit introverted so my inner life is important to me. I've mentioned all this to him several times. How do I get him to stop?

Obscure "12 Angry Men" question

There's a scene in the 1957 film version of 12 Angry Men where Juror No. 7 starts whistling and No. 2. tells him to knock it off. 7 replies, "Okay, okay, okay, killer...yeah." (At 56:50 here.) The way he says it, it seems like Jack Warden is impersonating someone, but I have no idea who. Any ideas? Or, if it's not an impersonation, why the clear change of voice from that character?

Can't place an SNL sketch and it is driving me crazy!

My husband and I are driving ourselves insane and I've come back to AskMeFi after a hiatus because only the hive mind can help. [more inside]
