First off, a correction to Mr. Jennings: Peter is portrayed by the strings; the flute is the bird.

1. What action might be accompanied by a Mexican saying "bueno," a Spaniard saying "diga," or an Italian saying "pronto"? Hmm.... something soccer (football)-related?

2. What kind of undifferentiated plant tissue can be apical, lateral, or intercalary? The only thing I can think of is cellulose.

3. Despite today's Apple-Google rivalry, two Google-owned properties were default pre-installed apps on the original iPhone. Name either. Pretty sure YouTube is one.

4. The album name and cover of the Minutemen's Double Nickels on the Dime, with Mike Watt driving exactly 55 miles per hour, was a jab at a 1984 hit by what rocker? Must be Sammy Hagar.

5. The "classical period" of what ancient civilization revolved around the rivalry between the cities of Tikal and Calakmul? Mayan?

6. The Basic Educational Opportunity Grants rolled out by the U.S. government in 1965 were named for what Rhode Island senator? Pell?

7. What unusual distinction is shared by these world capitals, listed in this order? Astana, Podgorica, Bishkek, Harare, Maputo, Malabo, Banjul, N'Djamena, Bandar Seri Begawan, Kinshasa, Bujumbura, Santo Domingo, Dushanbe, Jakarta, Ashgabat, Oslo.
No idea.

ETA: Ooh, I like UEL's answer for #1.
