Quizmasters Lee and Marc are joined by Luc and Andrew to ask, suss and answer each other’s favorite trivia questions of the week.
- MONDEGREENS – “Hey smilin’ strange / you’re looking happily deranged” Purposefully left a mystery by songwriter Mark Mulcahy, what is the third line to the first verse of “Hey Sandy”, the theme song of the 90’s coming of age sitcom Pet and Pete, confirmed in a 2012 Reddit AMA by actor Danny Tamberelli, who played Little Pete Wrigley the show?

- LEXICON – What Latin phrase translates to “occasion of war”, and describes an event used to justify war?
- AGRICULTURE – In what country is most of the world’s coffee produced?
Missed Corrections and KnowNotes
- Stephen Webster says : In episode 74, the question was asked “what 3 action movies did future state governors of California and Minnesota costar in” The final movie, Batman and Robin would be incorrect to me, based on the wording of the question. A cameo as a guard does not rise to the level of “costar” which could be misleading I would use the phrase “appeared in”, just to be safe. This might be a nitpick, but if a team at my local trivia missed the question do to this phrasing, there definitely would be complaints.
- Rachael supports Marc, saying ‘Spy Kids 2’ as an answer is sufficient.
- Elyse wants us to know the lyric “Rita Hayworth gave good face” is from Vogue and not Express Yourself.

- NBA – In what city were the NBA’s Grizzlies located in for six years before moving to Memphis?
- COLORS THAT END IN URPLE – What ancient Mediteranean civilization got its ancient Greek name from the purple cloth exported from the region?
