3. Lawrence
4. Lord
5. Manning
6. Maxwell
7. Obediah
8. Petrovich

9. Dr. Miguelito Quixote Loveless, of course.

12. Wiggett -- T Wiggett Jones, of course!


I could run off to the epguide and look the others up, but nah - what's the fun in that?

On #4 I suspect this isn't someone's middle name. I seem to remember someone being introduced - possibly in Tottering Tontine - as 'So-and-so Lord Such-and-such', making 'Lord' a title, not a name. (I'm thinking of Henry Darrow's character.) The way a title like 'Lord' or 'Sir' is spoken in an introduction has to do with what the actual title is (i.e. Lord Boswell) and whether the person holds that title or is a relative of the title holder. For example, Lord Peter Whimsey of the detective book series is the younger brother of the title holder, so his older brother is 'So-and-so, Lord Whimsey', while Peter is 'Lord Peter'.

Then again, maybe this has nothing to do with the quiz question, eh? But I wanted to put in my two cents' worth. I think I know a couple of the others, but I'll have to check the DVD's at lunch.

I believe the word you're searching for K, is Ghost TNOT Flaming Ghost. Dang, I can't believe I forgot that one

Silver: On #4 I suspect this isn't someone's middle name.

Nope; it really is. To quote Dr. Loveless, "Of course it's loaded. You know I wouldn't play a dirty trick like that on you."

Well, as I said, I realized that the whole title thing might not come into the question. But at least I got to show off a little bit, right?

#8: This is Ivan Petrovich Kalinkovich, from the widely-despised Miguelito's Revenge.

#3: Liston Lawrence Day from TNOT Man-Eating House.

#6: John Maxwell Avery from TNOT Casual Killers? That's just a guess, as we're going off the top of our heads...excellent quiz!

One more...

#10: Ulysses Simpson Grant.

For a while, my mind was stuck on Daniel Simpson Day (aka D-Day) from National Lampoon's "Animal House"! Sometimes, the pop culture sponge soaks up a little too much...

can I go for a Henry pinfeather with a bit of historical background? Ulysses Simpson Grant was born Hiram Ulysses Grant but someone screwed up when enrolling him in West Point and thought his first name was Ulysses and his middle name was Simpson, his mother's maiden name

(can't believe I missed that one too! Good Job Charlie Tobin!)

(I must be getting soft with the Winter Olympics on... as soon as they're over I can spend more time with my tapes again )

Right on, Red! Amazing how something like an enrollment error could change a big piece of American history! I'd say the Pinfeather is due you!

I love it when everybody chimes in for the quiz. Excellent job, Westers.

lleroy, sassy, KMills, couldron, and Redhead enjoy a five-way tie for the Henrietta for correct answers to ## 1, 7, 9, 11, and 12.

Sgt. Tobin has pinned to his tunic the Anabella of Merit for single-handedly handling ## 3, 6, 8, and 10. We salute you, sir.

And Silver receives a special Henry her charming way of showing off!

Oh—the rest:

Curtis Langley Dodd ("The Night of the Vicious Valentine," Act I);
General Titus Lord Baldwin ("The Arrow," Act 1 and tag);
Captain Horatio Manning Philo ("The Deadly Bubble," Act II).

See you guys tomorrow.

my best friend wants to go bobsledding at one of the old Olympic sites I forget where, New York state maybe? I can do the rollercoasters but waterslides and bob-sledding I still have yet to get over my fear of (rollercoasters at least have restraints!! {I used to work at Nitro at Six Flags Great Adventure})
