SAST Quiz #14 ANSWERS & RESULTS [In reply to] Can't Post

*Ro races in, breathless* What, me late? A quizmistress is never late! A big thanks to all 29 of you who played along last week in Quiz #14! Average score was about a 3.4, so a bit better than mediocre! Question #2 is the one that stumped you the most, but I bet it’s one you’ll remember now: I do hope that line is in the movie! As always, do let me know if you have any comments or questions (complaints, though, and I’ll send you off to the Wet Fish Department).

Answers

1. What is in the casket carried by the old man who accompanies Bard and the Elvenking when they go to parley with Thorin?

“ ‘What of the Arkenstone of Thrain?’ said he, and at the same moment the old man opened the casket and held aloft the jewel.”

2. Fill in the blanks (three words missing): “ ‘You all seem in league!’ said Thorin dropping Bilbo on top of the wall. ‘Never again will I have dealings with any wizard or his friends. What have you to say, you descendant of rats?’ ”

3. What are Thorin and Company wearing when they burst forth out of the gate of Erebor to join the battle?

“Hood and cloak were gone; they were in shining armour, and red light leapt from their eyes.”

4. With whom does Bilbo take his stand during the battle?

“He had taken his stand on Ravenhill among the Elves…”

5. What does Bilbo see coming at the end of the chapter, just before he his smote heavily on the head with a stone?

“ ‘The Eagles! The Eagles!’ he shouted. ‘The Eagles are coming!’ ”

Invisible Extra Credit (thanks for the giggles and chortles!) to: Aragalen the Green; Arandiel; Ataahua; batik; Darkstone; dernwyn; elaen32; Elberbeth; Eruwestial37; grammaboodawg; Maciliel; Nira; ryouko; SirDennisC; Ziggy Stardust

Double IEC to: Angharad73 (fantastic hair answers, as usual); Brethil for the ME Jeopardy theme (and Thranduil); Eowyn of Penns Woods – our Knitter Extraordinaire!; Lissuin for the Star Trek theme, complete with pictures; Riven Delve – bribery gets you everywhere; sador for tying this quiz to yet another song – well done! (though *glares sternly* you’re in serious danger of losing all IEC with those marine cuts comments Wink); and Silverlode, in particular for the insults if The Hobbit were filmed by different directors (scruffy looking nerfherders, indeed. I’ve ALWAYS wondered what a nerf looks like).

**********

Elberbeth: Your “String, or nothing!” answer to #3? ROFL!!! Yes, that would be a close second to the Carrock Galen Bathing Scene.

sador: We get more rain in winter, usually, and get more big nasty storms straight out of Antarctica in winter (just finished with one of those), but that’s not to say we can’t get monsoons and Antarctic storms any time of year!
