    Default Stump the Fanatic

    Loosely inspired by this youtube video, I give you Stump the Fanatic.

    Rules of the Game:

    There is one and only one 'fanatic' at a time. The goal is to ask a question of the fanatic in his or her chosen subject-field which the fanatic cannot answer, or to which (s)he gives a wrong answer (i.e. to "stump" the fanatic). The poster who does so becomes the next fanatic.

    The fanatic sets the parameters for potential questions when he or she first becomes the fanatic. A fanatic can choose anything within the world of entertainment -- TV shows, movies, books, plays, poetry, music, sports...basically anything that has an audience of some sort (but don't pick something too esoteric or no one else will be able to play, and that won't be very fun).

    The fanatic on the hot seat is honor-bound to only use his or her memory of the subject, and to not use the internet or other sources to answer the questions. After all, if you have to use Google then you really can't claim to be a true fanatic, can you?

    Questioners -- don't ask questions which you cannot answer (though you can use Google or whatever as much as you want), or which have no definite, single correct answer. In other words, don't ask what was in the author's mind when he wrote X, or ask questions that require subjective evaluations. Just factual question, please. Also, please only ask one question per post (or one question with several parts).

    Acceptable answers: since this is all from memory (assuming you are honorable), exact spelling and exact quotations are not required. So if the fanatic remembers "D'hoffryn" as 'Dahoffrin' or anything that is recognizable as the correct answer, then that answer is acceptable. If the fanatic gives an answer that you believe is wrong, provide proof that it is wrong (i.e. links, citations, etc).

    I'll start. My chosen field in which I claim expertise is the so-called 'Whedonverse' -- i.e. the TV shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. This does not include the comic books, the movie, any novelizations, or anything else that was not actually on screen as part of those two shows. As an added restriction, I don't pay close attention to credits, so don't ask any questions about who wrote or directed given episodes, or who the assistant to the set manager was in episode 3 of season 1, or whatever. In other words, just ask questions about details of the story and characters, please.

    As an incentive, I will be giving rep to whoever can stump me (and I invite everyone who participates to do so as well)...

    In the final episode when Buffy, Xander, and Willow are wandering off talking about shopping, Giles turns round and says "The Earth is doomed!" Which character said this same line at the end of another episode?

    Uh, that's not a very...generous..question. With what little you've given me I'm going to go with the basement of his parent's house, the "dank hole" as it was otherwise known.

    For a moment there I had no idea what you were talking about...but then I remembered there was like this whole other season before season 2 of Buffy.

    Was it ants?

    Yes my question was a bit too vague, let me look up the specifics.

    Episode is "The Dark Age" near the beginning

    BUFFY
    I'm on a beach. Not an American
    beach -- one of those island beaches
    where the water is way too blue.
    It's just before sunset, I'm lying on
    a towel and Gavin Rossdale is
    massaging my feet.

    WILLOW
    That's good. Uh, i'm in Florence,
    Italy. I've rented a scooter which
    is parked outside. I'm in a little
    restaurant having ziti and there's no
    more tables so they have to seat this
    guy with me and it's John Cusack.

    BUFFY
    Very impressive. An eye for detail.

    WILLOW
    (excited)
    'Cause, with the ziti.

    [XANDER joins them.]

    XANDER
    What are you guys up to?

    BUFFY
    Just having a quick game of "Anywhere
    But Here."

    XANDER
    *******************

    WILLOW
    You never come up with anything new.

    One of my friends managed to get this right when asked it as a Buffy tivia question although the moderator didn't expect anybody to know it. Let's see if you do :P

    Jesus Christ that's obscure Nightson. I seem to remember that it was the water park or the water slides or something, with some girl who's name I can't remember. Is that close enough?

    I'm not an entomologist. Take a look at this screencapture that I just took:

    One looks like an ant to me, and the other could have been a queen ant or a different species for all I know.

    :mmmhuh: Alright, I'll let you off that one. (And not at all because I'm expert at nothing, oh no)

    What's Faith's surname?

    All right, then I'm going to say that her last name was never mentioned on either Angel or Buffy.

    That's close enough for me. Amy Yip at the water park is the full answer (Which coincidentally I remembered as being Amy Tan )
