Special Sub-Topic: My Ship is Better Than Your Ship!
|If you were discussing ships with a "Glee" fan and they bring up "Quick", they would be referencing the relationship of which two characters?|
Quinn and Puck. At the start of the series, Quinn, the head cheerleader, and Finn, the quarterback of the school football team, were happily dating. However, another football player, Puck, got Quinn drunk and pregnant at a party so Quinn and Finn broke it off. "Quick" ultimately decided to give the baby up for adoption and broke off their relationship.
|Dr. Cal Lightman and his partner, Dr. Gillian Foster, were best friends and business partners. Some believed, however, that there was more to their relationship than meets the eye. Cal and Gillian were thus morphed into "Callian". To what television show am I referring?|
Lie To Me. Dr. Cal Lightman and Dr. Gillian Foster formed the Lightman Group: the business of solving crimes and mysteries by reading emotions on people's faces. Cal and Gillian, however, were inseparable even at the start of season one, and Cal's daughter Emily pointed out on several occasions the chemistry between the two. While Cal admitted to Emily his love for Gillian in the season three finale, the show was cancelled before Cal and Gillian could begin a relationship.
|Partners Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson were good friends that sacrificed victims, time, and money to save one another's lives. Some fans believed that true love was the underlying reason. Elliot and Olivia shippers generally call them "E/O" or "Elliot/Olivia." What branch of the "Law and Order" franchise did Elliot and Olivia belong to?|
Law and Order SVU. "Law and Order SVU" began in 1999 as the first spinoff of the series "Law and Order". Elliot was introduced as married with four children at the beginning of the series. When Elliot and his wife, Kathy, separated in the sixth season, many fans believed it was time that Elliot and Olivia started dating. But, Elliot and Kathy later reconciled. At the end of the twelfth season, actor Chris Meloni (Elliot) left the show to pursue his acting career elsewhere, effectively ending any chance of "E/O" ever becoming a couple.
|Dr. House from the hit series "House M.D." has had his share of flings and things in his time. While the "Hameron" ship emerged early, many fans felt that House and Dr. Cameron did not belong together. The "Huddy" ship came about soon afterwards. This ship name refers to House and what other doctor?|
Cuddy. Dr. Cuddy is the Dean of Medicine at Princeton Plainsboro and Dr. House's boss. By season three, House has his eyes set on Cuddy and it's clear that she cares for him as well. The two become a "will they, won't they" relationship until the end of season six, when Cuddy declares her love for House. "Huddy" date in the first half of season 7, before breaking it off in the episode "Bombshell."
|In the online internet community, Buffy is often shipped with Angel; generally, the ship name for Angel and Buffy is Bangel. But if someone were to declare themselves a "Spuffy" fan, that means they ship Buffy with whom?|
Spike. While Spike is Buffy's enemy when he first guest stars on the series, he later forms an alliance with her after Angel pursues Spike's love interest, Drusilla. However, after Drusilla dumps Spike for allying with Buffy, he chooses to stay and fight alongside Buffy, eventually falling in love with her. While Spike was later killed in the series, that hasn't stopped "Spuffy" fans from remaining attached to the couple.
|If I were to mention that after watching Kate and Rick on television I became a die hard "Caskett" fan, then I would be referring to what ABC series? |
Castle. When Castle and Beckett first meet, there is an immediate antagonism. Castle, a novelist, tags along with Beckett's NYPD team in the hopes of gaining research for his books (much to Beckett's chagrin). However, the two soon grow close and Castle's daughter, Alexis, looks up to Beckett as a friend and mother figure. In the season three finale, Castle finally admits his feelings for Beckett after she is injured.
|Whether "Jam" will develop an "office" romance becomes a question very early on in the series "The Office." Which two characters am I referring to?|
Jim and Pam. When "The Office" begins its first season, Pam is engaged to her high school sweetheart, Roy, but Jim makes it clear that he is interested in her anyway. However, she refuses to see him as anything else than a friend until the end of season three when her relationship with Roy ends for good. In season four, Jim and Pam begin dating and later marry and start a family together.
|BB, Semperance, and B/B are all nicknames for what couple from the series "Bones"?|
Booth and Bones. Temperance Brennan (also known as Bones) clashes a bit, at first, with FBI agent Seeley Booth, but the two soon begin to get along well and develop a friendship. The friendship, however, turns into romantic love and while Bones denies her feelings at first, she comes to terms with them in the sixth season. In the sixth season, Booth and Bones find out that they are expecting a child together.
|Agent Leroy Gibbs has bad luck in the relationship department. Some say that he makes a good match with his colleague Abby and call themselves "Gabby" shippers. Yet others feel that he worked best with NCIS Director Jenny Shepard and call Gibbs and Jenny "Jibbs". What show am I referring to?|
NCIS. Jenny Shepard and Agent Gibbs had a past relationship while both worked in Europe, but broke it off before Gibbs returned to the United States. When Jenny was appointed as the new NCIS Director, their true feelings for one another were revealed again. She was killed in season five of the series, but fans continued to ship their relationship anyway.
|While most couples are shipped male/female, some fans ship male/male or female/female couples. This is called slash. Which of the following television couples is a slash couple?|
