Quote Quiz Answers

Thank you to everyone who participated in our latest game!  Hopefully it wasn't too difficult to identify the speakers and the episodes-- though I must say most of you did remarkably well.  Perhaps we need to up the ante.  :D  (We apologize if anyone found any aspects of the game discouraging or too hard; however, when scoring people's answers we need to stick to the rules we laid out in the original game post for the sake of fairness.  Thus, we will only count an answer as fully correct if it identifies both the speaker of the quote and the episode in which the line is spoken.  Thanks for understanding!)
