Where did the title Rubber Soul come from?

  

Whenever Cynthia and John would argue, she would say "Johnny, you rub my soul the wrong way" to end it. Then he mentioned it one day while working on the album; he said to George Martin "I rub her soul the wrong way, so she tells me."  And George said "THAT'S IT!"

Why was George and why was Paul deported from Germany in November 1960?

Brian Epstein.  It was his musical way of solidifying his hold on being the fifth Beatle.

 

What exotic instrument did George learn to play in early 1965, and use in songs by the Rubber Soul album?

It was a bagpipe, and he played it in the Rubber Soul version of Mull Of Kintyre . And later at his famous Concert For Edinburgh. Actually George was always jealous of Paul for his scottish sounding Name "McCartney".

They fear that George Martin would potentially ruin their 100-year streak of staying in the Billboard Top 100, which could be detrimental to their career.

When and why did the Beatles adopt a pet rock?

They were headed to Hamburg and needed a drummer a-hard-days-night-george-10

This date is widely considered the most important in Beatles' history.  What is it and why?

The first date John had with Yoko.  It is the most important, because if that doesn't happen, we would never hear and "appreciate" the Milk And Honey album song, O' Sanity

 

In what motion picture did John Lennon have a role without the rest of the Beatles?

The Big Lebowski, as pain in the arse Donnie who's asking Walter about I Am The Walrus because he's mixing up Lenin and Lennon (a genius meta joke). Nobody recognized John because he's been dead for almost as long as Paul McCartney and looked like Steve Buscemi by then.

 

Which motion picture and which role gave Ringo his major breakthrough as an actor?

Ringo played the evil Paws, known for beating his foes with drum sticks, in The Spy Who Loved Me. Unfortunately all of his scenes were lost at the bottom of the ocean during the underwater car scene.

The Beatles technically didn't play any, because Paul was killed in a car crash more than two years prior, and the part of McCartney has been played by a William Campbell Shears ever since...

What television show helped the Beatles explode in popularity in America?

 

(p.s., I was strongly tempted to say "All of them!")
