Buffy Trivia: Special Anniversary Edition Answers
1. Who arrives late for Joyce's funeral? Angel ("Forever," Angel arrives after sundown because, y'know, vampire.)

2. According to Spike, what does he love more than Harmony? Syphilis ("The Harsh Light of Day," Harmony accuses Spike, "You love that tunnel more than me," to which Spike replies, "I love syphilis more than you.")

3. Name one of the two episodes in which the Grr Argh Monster sings. (Bonus point for naming both.) "Once More With Feeling," "Storyteller" (In OMWF, the monster sings Grr Argh and in "Storyteller" he sings "We are as gods!")

4. What weapon of Buffy's delivers "flying fatality"? Crossbow ("Angel," Buffy: "Goodbye stakes, hello flying fatality.")

5. Complete the lyric: "Going through the motions, losing all my drive. I can't even see, if this is really me and . . . I just want to be alive." (I decided to give a half point for people who answered with the sentiment of the quote. Many people answered with the exact wording, so I didn't feel it was appropriate to give full credit.)

6. Who prefers to think of himself as the Scooby Gang's "guestage"? Andrew ("Get it Done," when one of the Potentials asks about the hostage, Andrew replies that he "prefer[s] the term guestage.")

7. What do two women say to Angel before killing him? "Close your eyes." ("Becoming, Part 2," Darla says it before biting him, and Buffy says it before shoving a sword through his gut.)

8. Who first remembers Ben transforming into Glory? Spike ("The Weight of the World," someone commented that Spike never forgets, but that also means he remembers it first.)

9. What are Spike's dying words before being burned "alive"? "I want to see how it ends." (I decided to give a half point for people who answered with the sentiment of the quote. Many people answered with the exact wording, so I didn't feel it was appropriate to give full credit.) (mistressrenet deserves a sarcasm point for replying, "This hurts like a motherfucker." Heh)

10. Name one of the two Joss Whedon "hat tricks" who appeared in Season 3. (Bonus point for naming both actors.) Carlos Jacott (Ken), Andy Umberger (D'Hoffryn) (Carlos Jacott appeared in "Anne" and Andy Umberger appeared in "Dopplegangland." Jonathan M. Woodward and Jeff Ricketts are the other 2 hat tricks, but did not appear in Season 3.)

11. What is the only known cure for the poison the Killer of the Dead? the blood of a Slayer ("Graduation Day," the Killer of the Dead is the name of the poison Faith used on Angel.)

12. In what episode is the BtVS theme song played during the episode? "Prophecy Girl" (After Buffy is revived, she, Xander, and Angel march into the school to Nerf Herder.)

13. What medical problem was killing Buffy's friend Billy Fordham? brain tumor, or cancer ("Lie to Me," Ford specifically says "brain tumor.")

14. According to Angelus, what could we live without to know some kind of peace? Passion ("Passion," the question is probably a bit poorly worded since Angelus actually says, "If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But then we would be hollow.")

15. What is the name of the "extinct" vampire dueling cult that reappears when Wesley arrives in Sunnydale? El Eliminati ("Bad Girls," I put this question in specifically because I couldn't remember the name the other day.)

16–20. Fill in the missing words:
Can't even (16) shout
Can't even (17) cry
The (18) gentlemen are coming by
Looking in windows
Knocking on (19) doors
They need to take (20) seven
And they might take yours.
("Hush")

Bonus: If there's a party in Xander's eye socket, who is invited? Everyone (The quote is, "Party in my eye socket and everyone's invited!") (Someone answered "Willow" and another person answer "Giles," but since they're part of everyone, I gave credit for those answers.)

Thanks again for playing. I might be convinced to restart Buffy Trivia if I can get some help. Would anyone be interested?

I'd have to see how many people are interested in helping, because I wouldn't want to impede too much on their ability to play. But I could use help with pretty much everything including:

~writing questions
~typing posts
~loging answers
~tracking points
~making awards

If a few people helped, I'd have them trade off so they could still play. If only one person helped, I'd probably focus on writing questions and just get their help with typing posts, tracking points, and making awrds.

Possibly I'd get a helper to run those side games I sometimes do.

Well, the admin stuff is stuff I could handle! I don't think I'd be much help at writing questions, since I don't have the depth of knowledge that you have, but I could definitely do the other stuff. Possibly even making awards, now that I have photoshop, but I'm not as good with the graphics stuff as I'd like to be. Keep me posted on what you decide to do.

I could really use a person to help generate questions, but if you would be willing to do some of the admin stuff that would help. Once I have my spreadsheet set up, it's pretty easy, but then I have to track across the five rounds and if I have any special awards, I have to track that (I skipped that for this last time).

mirankos wants to continue to make awards, but if she ever can't...

Subtext?

I have a book filled with Buffy questions, so I could possibly help with the generating of questions.

Thank you for the offer. I prefer for the questions to be original creations based on watching the show or from behind-the-scenes information. I have reference books that I use to fact check, but I stay away from pre-written questions.
