Food and Drink in Entertainment Trivia Questions

1. Comic strip character Andy Capp enjoys a brew at the local pub and usually comes home late, where he is confronted by his long-suffering wife. What is her name?

From Quiz
Short Arms but Deep Pockets

Answer: Flo

Poor Flo, in Andy Capp, this is what she has to put up with; a husband who doesn't have a job, has no motivation to get one, who cannot pay their rent yet, somehow, manages to find money for cigarettes and a drink at the pub. As stated, he is usually inebriated (with "usually" meaning seven days a week), he's overstayed his welcome at the pub, gotten into a fight and thrown in the cells or he's being fished out of one of the local canals by the local police. Flo, which is short for Florence (she was named after Florence Nightingale), lives constantly on the poverty line and it is not unusual for her to see their furniture repossessed. More than once she has clobbered her husband with a rolling pin. This generally occurred in the early years of the strip but has since been curtailed. The shoe does tend to shift to the other foot some times, because Flo enjoys her bingo and she too has managed to come home late to find her husband waiting at the door, arms folded and, impatiently, tapping his foot. "Andy Capp", created by Reg Smythe, has been appearing in the Daily Mirror since 1957.

2. "Fill my cup with Butterbeer," says a ginger-haired teenage wizard. It's a good thing Butterbeer has such a low alcohol content, because you suspect he and his friends look underage. Which magical book and film series do they come from?

From Quiz Fill My Cup

Answer: Harry Potter

The ginger wizard is, of course, Ron Weasley, and he and his fellow wizards will often have a drink or two of Butterbeer when visiting the village of Hogsmeade. Described as tasting like butterscotch, albeit less sickly, Butterbeer is served both hot and cold, in various pubs in the Potterverse such as the Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley, or the Three Broomsticks and the Hog's Head in Hogsmeade. House elves have been known to get drunk on it. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter serves Butterbeer; the real-life version is not alcoholic, and has a taste similar to cream soda. On 12th December 2012, the theme park gave away free glasses to celebrate the milestone of over 5 million glasses of Butterbeer being sold.

3. "Vodka martini, shaken, not stirred" is one of the most legendary movie catchphrases . Which impeccable dresser and secret agent man orders his drink with this phrase?

From Quiz Absinthe Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Answer: James Bond & Bond & 007

"Dry Vodka Martini, shaken, not stirred" is ordered in almost all the Bond movies by all the actors who have portrayed him. In "Casino Royale", at the casino scene with Le Chiffre, Bond orders a variation of the usual vodka martini, "Three measures of Gordon's; one of vodka; half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it over ice, and add a thin slice of lemon peel" which is named the "Vesper" after Vesper Lynd, the female character in both the book and movie. As much as he enjoys his martinis, James Bond has a fondness for other drinks, namely bourbon and "Bollinger" and "Dom Perignon" champagnes. In one rare occasion, he's seen drinking a beer with CIA man Felix Leiter.

4. There was a boy named James who had a giant fruit; what kind of fruit was it?

From Quiz Just Wolf This Down

Answer: peach

"James and the Giant Peach" was a 1961 children's story by Roald Dahl. It was about a boy living with two cruel aunts who was given a bag of crocodile tongues and, well, read the story if you like.

5. In the "Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword", what simply-named fruit allows Link to safely navigate the Fire Sanctuary by solidifying and cooling the lava?

From Quiz Fruity Entertainment

Answer: Water Fruit

When Link chops a water fruit, water falls from it and hardens the lava allowing Link to cross. Link also needs to do this to defeat the Magmanos enemies.

6. Eating what fruit earns the consumer 100 points in "Pac-Man" and "Ms. Pac-Man"?

From Quiz Say "CHEESE"

Answer: Cherry

"Pac-man" was conceived by a Japanese student when he was looking at a pizza from which two pieces had been removed. The Cherry appears in the first screen, the first fruit to be eaten. Eating the cherry gives 100 points towards the level completion.

7. Fans of the "Star Trek" Universe will be well aware that Klingons have some very strange delicacies. A Klingon favourite is a bowl of live serpent worms. What was this delightfully wriggly dish known as?

From Quiz A Smorgasbord of Entertainment

Answer: Gagh

Apparently, Gagh was a revolting tasting dish ate only for the delightful sensation of the worms squirming in the stomach. Funny lot the Klingons! Bregit lung, a dish of reptilian animals, was often accompanied by Grapok sauce which appears to be a Klingons version of HP sauce. Rokeg blood pie was one of Worf's favourite as a child ("TNG") and traditionally eaten on the Klingons Day of Honour.

8. The film "Chocolat" (2000) featured Johnny Depp and starred which French actress as the character Vianne Rocher?

From Quiz The Chocolate Soldier

Answer: Juliette Binoche

The film was based on a book written by Joanne Harris, and is about a young woman opening a chocolate shop in a French village. The mayor, played by Alfred Molina, sees the shop as immoral, especially as it opens during Lent. The film also featured Judi Dench and Leslie Caron, who starred in "Gigi" (1958). The other options are also well known French actresses.

9. What movie involves a friendly alien who enjoys eating Reeses Pieces?

From Quiz Candy in Entertainment

Answer: E.T.

"E.T." was directed by Steven Spielberg, and he noted it as one of his greatest movie achievements of all time. "E.T." was released in 1982, and again in 1985, with restored graphics, and yet again in 2002, with even better graphics! "E.T." has become known as the alien who loves Reeses Pieces. Reeses Pieces are a cross between the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and M & Ms. It is a ball of peanut butter filling with a hard candy coating over it. In 1982, "E.T." became the "most financially successful movie of its time," even beating out "Star Wars!"

10. Complete this iconic piece of advice from Homer Simpson to his son Bart; "Now, son, you don't want to drink beer. That's for daddies and kids with ___".

From Quiz Short Arms but Deep Pockets

Answer: Fake IDs

When Matt Groening introduced the world to Homer Simpson back in 1987, one would have been hard pressed to find another leading protagonist in an animated series with such a fondness for beer as Homer. It would take the introduction of another Groening creation, Bender from "Futurama" in 1999, and Peter Griffin ("Family Guy" 1999) before Homer had any serious competition in that department. As the balding, overweight patriarch of the Simpson family, Homer is lazy, at times incompetent, addicted to junk food and loves watching television. However, despite becoming a cultural icon and one of the most influential characters on television, I certainly wouldn't be keen on taking his advice, such as the pearl of wisdom above, dished out to his son Bart in the 1997 episode "The Springfield Files".

11. On the buffet you eye a dish made of ground beef, bread crumbs, and some chopped onions and peppers. Good comfort food. Grab a slice of it and realize this dish would do anything for love. But it won't do THAT. What is this dish?

From Quiz Entertainment Buffet: FITB Food Used As Titles

Answer: Meatloaf & Meat Loaf

Meatloaf, much more appetizing than the name inspires, has been around in history since the first millennium. It consists of some form of ground meat, often lamb in the recipe's infancy, now it is most commonly ground beef. Mix in some grain (bread crumbs, oatmeal, etc.) and some vegetables you have lying around, cook, and serve sliced with a little sauce on top. The singer born Marvin Aday, now known as Meat Loaf (space required) hit the charts the first time in the late 1970s. With his mega-album "Bat Out of Hell", he had hits of "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad" and Paradise By the Dashboard Light". He made a resurgence in 1993 with his album "Bat Out of Hell II", and the Billboard Number One song "I Would Do Anything For Love". He mainly stays in the spotlight with small acting gigs.

12. Watch out for that food flying around the room! Which "Flying" family might have served it to you?

From Quiz Just Wolf This Down

Answer: Burrito Brothers

One of the early country rock bands, the Flying Burrito Brothers became something of a haven for former Byrds members. Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons were the first two ex-Byrds in the group. Their first album "The Gilded Palace of Sin", though not a commercial success, is considered highly influential in the genre.

13. On "The Simpsons", what fruit tree is one of the symbols of Springfield and was infamously stolen by the rivaling town, Shelbyville?

From Quiz Fruity Entertainment

Answer: Lemon tree

The lemon tree featured prominently in the Season 6 episode "Lemon of Troy". According to Grandpa Simpson, the lemon was chosen because it was the sweetest fruit available at the time.

14. Ironically, the English version of ABBA's song "Honey Honey" was not released as a single in which country in 1974?

From Quiz Say "CHEESE"

Answer: United Kingdom

"Waterloo" was the song that won ABBA first place in the Eurovision contest that made them famous; "Honey Honey" was the second song on the "Waterloo" album. It was also the last song recorded by them in Swedish.

15. The story of 'Snow White' exists in various forms be it the original fairy tale, the Disney film or even video games. The story involves poison but which fruit is the poison's host?

From Quiz Best Left Uneaten

Answer: Apple

'Snow White', or in German 'Schneewittchen', is the world-famous fairytale penned by the Brothers Grimm. The story documents the hatred that a queen has for her stepdaughter (Snow White) due to her youthful beauty. The rather extreme result of her envy, especially for a piece of literature much loved by children, is multiple attempts at taking the young girl's life! The first attempt involved sending a huntsman into the woods but the huntsman found that he didn't have the heart to kill such a young girl and so refused to carry out the deed. The second was attempted death by bodice; the Queen, in disguise, visited Snow White at the dwarves' home and sold the girl a bodice. The Queen then proceeded to tighten it to such an extent that Snow White fainted and she was left there to die. The dwarves came to the rescue though and untied the bodice allowing Snow White to return to consciousness. The remaining two attempts at the life of Snow White made use of poison; firstly, the poison was applied to a comb which caused Snow White to faint when she brushed her hair, and secondly, the famous apple was laced with poison which, for a while at least, appeared to have finally finished the young girl off. Snow White did live happily ever after though!

16. Who wrote the scrumptiously titled novel "Chocolat"?

From Quiz A Smorgasbord of Entertainment

Answer: Joanne Harris

"Chocolat", a 1999 novel by Joanne Harris, is set in rural France and is about a single mother who moves into an old bakery and opens a chocolate shop. It's a touching and romantic book, which also looks at what happens when the unorthodox and the orthodox meet. In 2000, it was made into a film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp.

17. "Arise, Sir Loin of Beef!" Bugs Bunny utters this line in a cartoon parody from the late 1940s. What is the cartoon called?

From Quiz Steaks, Why'd It Have to Be Steaks?

Answer: Rabbit Hood

"Rabbit Hood" (1949) is a parody of "Robin Hood", and Bugs Bunny dubs the Sheriff of Nottingham "Sir Loin of Beef". After 'knighting' the sheriff, he whacks him with his scepter, and gives him several other names (each with a whack on the head to follow). Some of the names he gives him are "Earl of Cloves", "Essence of Myrrh", and "Milk of Magnesia".

18. The operetta 'The Chocolate Soldier' was written by Oscar Straus and used which George Bernard Shaw work as its inspiration?

From Quiz The Chocolate Soldier

Answer: Arms and the Man

All the options are plays written by Shaw. 'Arms and the Man' was written in 1894, 'Man and Superman' in 1902/3, 'Major Barbara' in 1905 and 'Pygmalion' in 1912/13. Shaw himself was not impressed by the operetta, describing it as 'a putrid opera bouffe' (comic opera) according to Wikipedia, and refusing to allow Franz LĂ©har the rights to setting 'Pygmalion' to music in 1921. That play was eventually adapted in 1956 after Shaw's death, famously becoming known as 'My Fair Lady'.

19. Mel Stuart directed this movie, starring Gene Wilder, about an entire world of candy creations. What is the name of this movie?

From Quiz Candy in Entertainment

Answer: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

"Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" was a 1971 movie based on a 1964 novel, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," by Roald Dahl. The catchphrase for the movie is "It's Scrumdidilyumptious!" Everything in the chocolate factory was made of some sort of candy. The grass was edible, the flowers were edible, a river was made of chocolate milk, and you could lick the wallpaper! Sounds like a dream come true for many candy and chocoholics!

20. In which 1978 film, starring John Belushi and Tom Hulce, does the Delta Tau Chi House throw an infamous toga party that leads to Dean Wormer revoking the fraternity's charter?

From Quiz Short Arms but Deep Pockets

Answer: Animal House

At the hastily convened court at which Dean Wormer revokes the fraternity's charter, Doug Neidermeyer testifies that there were "individual acts of perversion so profound and disgusting that decorum prohibits us listing them here". But was it really that bad... so a keg got thrown through a window, some ladies coats got thrown on the floor, John Belushi's "Bluto" commits an act of heroism by smashing a folk singer's guitar and everyone has a great time dancing to Otis Day & the Knights' rendition of "Shout". The most memorable scene during the course of the party was the late arrival of the grocery checkout cashier, Clorette DePasto (Sarah Holcomb), who immediately hooks up with Pinto (Tom Hulce), skulls a couple of beers because she has "a lot of catching up to do" and then passes out in the bedroom at the point where they (she and Pinto) were looking to take the relationship to the next step. It's at this point that Pinto has an hilarious fight with his conscience and then, does the right thing, and deposits the girl home in a shopping trolley.

21. "Fill my cup with Duff," says a fat yellow man with very little hair. "It's my favourite beer." He starts drooling. In which animated series is Duff the beer of choice?

From Quiz Fill My Cup

Answer: The Simpsons

The Duff drinker is Homer Simpson, the patriarch of the Simpson family and a regular at Moe's Tavern. Duff is so popular in the 'Simpsons' world that it even has its own theme park, complete with a Small World-inspired ride featuring a river of Duff (into which Lisa once fell by accident, and got very drunk). While several real life brands called 'Duff' exist, 'Simpsons' creator Matt Groening does not want to licence the Duff trademark in case it encourages children to drink. On the subject of drinks and 'The Simpsons', one episode centres around bartender Moe Szyslak claiming to have invented the 'Flaming Moe', a cocktail made up of various spirits, although it was actually Homer's idea. Homer gets his revenge by announcing to prospective buyers that the secret ingredient is Krusty the Clown's own brand cough syrup.

22. An interesting food to find on the buffet; little shaped shortbread cookies. You can see what the Marx Brothers would call them; they performed in a Broadway musical and a movie of the same title. What food items are these?

From Quiz Entertainment Buffet: FITB Food Used As Titles

Answer: Animal Crackers

Animal crackers have been around since the 19th century, originating in England. They were more commonly called animal biscuits in Britain. Shaped like circus animals, the most popular brand is made by Nabisco. "Animal Crackers", as far as entertainment is concerned, began as a Broadway show in 1928, and starred all four Marx brothers. It was later developed into a movie of the same title in 1930. It was their third and last stage show, as they focused all their talents on film after the Broadway run was over.

23. Ah, your grandmother made some Elixir Soup. She's the best! Just where would you find this soup?

From Quiz Just Wolf This Down

Elixir Soup was a potion in the video game "The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker". When the hero, Link, drank some his health and magic ability were restored, and it made his sword glow, too. Very cool!

24. Agatha Christie's famed Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot has a friend named Ariadne Oliver, who is a caricature of Christie herself. What fruit can Mrs. Oliver usually be found snacking on until she found a girl drowned in a tub of them?

From Quiz Fruity Entertainment

25. What 2009 film tells the story of a girl blogging her experiences as she tries cooking all the recipes in her heroine's first cookery book?

From Quiz Say "CHEESE"

Answer: Julie & Julia

Meryl Streep, in yet another of her superlative performances, plays Julia Child. Blogger Julie Powell, portrayed by Amy Adams, decides to cook her way through Julia's book in 365 days, blogging all the while. This sometimes funny, sometimes poignant movie depicts the part of Julia Childs' life as the wife of US diplomat in France.

26. What is the name of the comic book series which is set in a world where all bird meat is off the menu due to a severe and deadly outbreak of bird flu? I believe it is even illegal to masticate bird meat in this world!

From Quiz Best Left Uneaten

Answer: Chew

The first book in the comic book series 'Chew' was published in 2009 and it met such initial success that the franchise picked up the Eisner Award for Best New Series in 2009 and obtained a further Eisner Award in 2010, this time in the Best Continuing Series category. This is quite a big deal when it is considered that the Eisner Awards is often said to be the Academy Awards of the comic book industry. 'Chew', written by John Layman and illustrated by Rob Guillory, is set in the USA, a country suffering from the effects of bird flu to the extent that over twenty million people have died. The consequence of this is that the consumption of bird meats, such as chicken, turkey and, for the more adventurous, pigeon, is illegal. The enforcement of this law is down to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials such as the main character in this comic book series, Tony Chu.

27. The title of John Steinbeck novel, published in 1939, may have suggested he was writing about angry fruit...but which fruit?

From Quiz A Smorgasbord of Entertainment

Answer: "Grapes of Wrath"

It might have sounded as if he was writing about angry grapes but the book set in the "Great Depression" tells of a poor family who are forced to leave their Mid Western home in the hopes of finding a living in California. Published in 1939, the book won he "National Book Award" and the "Pulitzer Prize". The book was made into a film in 1940, directed by John Ford and starring Henry Fonda, and won two Oscars.

28. The World Chocolate Wonderland theme park, featuring chocolate models of the country's sites, opened in January 2010 in which Asian capital?

From Quiz The Chocolate Soldier

Answer: Beijing

The theme park is in Beijing, not far from the Bird's Nest stadium used for the Olympic Games in 2008. It includes models of the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Army and a BMW car, as well as clothing and porcelain all constructed from chocolate. The displays are in temperature controlled halls, and protected by glass, to prevent melting.

29. In what movie do we find Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans?

From Quiz Candy in Entertainment

Answer: Harry Potter movies

In 2004, the third installment, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," was released. Fourth in the series, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" was released in 2005.

30. Which video game warrior, whose franchise bears his name and is a homage to action heroes such as John Wayne and Arnold Schwarzenegger, has been known to use beer to reduce damage to himself?

From Quiz Short Arms but Deep Pockets

Answer: Duke Nukem

Duke first appeared in "Duke Nukem" (1992), a 2D platform game in which he defeats the evil Dr. Proton from taking over the world. Though he is not superhuman he manages to achieve incredible feats of strength and exploits of survival. He is a master of weaponry and is never seen without his Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. In "Duke Nukem Forever" (2001), a first-person shooter video game for Windows, OS X, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, he trades in his Portable Medkit for... cans of beer. The mind boggles here. One can and Duke is toasted. His vision immediately blurs, sounds grow deeper and there is a slowing in his movements. However, the pay off is that it makes him tougher and it reduces damage to his person by up to 75%. Note: The other characters, though famous in their own right, do not have their names in the franchise title. Dante is from the "Devil May Care" franchise, Marcus Fenix is from "Gears of War" and Nathan Drake is from "Unchartered".
