From Quiz "Fargo": You're Darn Tootin'!

There's a place in town called the Blue Ox Inn, but the statue at Brainerd's border depicts a giant Paul Bunyan, complete with his axe resting on his shoulder.

4. In the second scene when Wade is watching TV in the Lundegaard's home, he is watching an ice hockey game. Jerry asks him what he's watching, and Wade responds with the name of the team that is playing, which is what team?

From Quiz I.Emma Movielover's 'Fargo' Quiz!

Answer: Gophers & Gopher

Jerry: 'Whatcha watchin' there?' Wade: 'Gophers!'

5. Jerry Lundegaard and his wife Jean have a son. What is his name?

From Quiz "Fargo": You're Darn Tootin'!

Answer: Scotty

Scotty seems to be completely disrespectful of his parents until his mother's kidnapping. (One has to wonder what happens to him after the end of the film -- his mother and grandfather are dead, and his father is on his way to prison!)

6. Jean asked Scotty if he knew what the word ___________ meant.

From Quiz I.Emma Movielover's 'Fargo' Quiz!

Answer: disparity

Jean: 'You're not a C student! Yet you're gettin' C grades. It's that disparity there that concerns your dad and me. Do you know what a disparity is?' Scotty: 'Yeah!' Jean: 'Well, okay! That's why we don't want you goin' out for hockey.'

7. A very pregnant Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand) is shown eating quite a few hearty meals in this film. Which fast food chain's cuisine do we NOT see her sampling?

From Quiz "Fargo": You're Darn Tootin'!

Answer: McDonald's

Scotty Lundegaard runs off to McDonald's at one point, but we never see Marge eat anything from the Golden Arches. Her husband Norm brings her an Arby's lunch early on, and later in the film, we see her ordering food at the Hardee's drive-through.

8. How much is the finder's fee that Wade would be willing to pay Jerry?

From Quiz I.Emma Movielover's 'Fargo' Quiz!

Answer: 10 percent

Jerry: 'Finder's fee's, what, ten percent? Heck, that's not gonna do it for me! I need the principle!' Stan: 'Jerry, we're not gonna just give you 750,000 dollars!'

9. At one point in the film, Carl Showalter (Steve Buscemi) brings a hired escort to see a live concert. Who is the featured performer?

From Quiz "Fargo": You're Darn Tootin'!

Answer: Jose Feliciano

Carl seems to be a fan of Feliciano, who appears as himself in this scene. The hired escort doesn't look too impressed.

10. Marge's pregnancy is probably about how far along?

From Quiz I.Emma Movielover's 'Fargo' Quiz!

Answer: Seven months

At the end of the movie, Marge and Norm say 'Two more months', obviously about how long until the baby arrives. Since a human's gestation period is nine months, she must be about seven months along.

11. At which hotel chain does Marge Gunderson stay during the bulk of her investigation?

From Quiz "Fargo": You're Darn Tootin'!

Answer: Radisson

Marge seems pleased with the Radisson, as does her creepy friend Mike from high school, who praises the hotel bar by saying, "Well, it's a Radisson, so you know it's gonna be good."

12. At the start of the movie, Jerry meets with Carl and Gaear at a bar in Fargo, North Dakota. What is the bar called?

From Quiz I.Emma Movielover's 'Fargo' Quiz!

Answer: King of Clubs

13. Jerry originally tells Carl Showalter that he and his partner will receive $40,000 for their part in the kidnapping. How much money is Carl actually handed at the pick-up that results in his being shot in the face?

From Quiz "Fargo": You're Darn Tootin'!

Answer: $1,000,000

Wade Gustafson, Jerry's father-in-law, brings one million dollars to the drop-off. After killing Wade and grabbing the bag of money, Carl extracts $80,000 to show his partner, but buries the rest in the snow along a desolate highway, ostensibly so he can go back later and grab the remaining $920,000 for himself. I think it's pretty clear that no one will ever find that money...and not just because the guy who buried it is dead by the end of the film.

14. When Marge catches Gaear trying to dispose of Carl's body, which body part of Carl's is sticking up out of the woodchipper?

From Quiz I.Emma Movielover's 'Fargo' Quiz!

Answer: Leg, foot

15. One of the paintings submitted by Marge's husband Norm wins a contest. Norm's painting of what animal will be appearing on the three-cent stamp in the near future, according to Norm's own dialogue?

From Quiz "Fargo": You're Darn Tootin'!

Answer: a duck

Specifically, it's Norm's painting of a mallard duck that wins the honor.

16. Wade didn't approve of Jerry and Jean letting Scotty go where after supper?

From Quiz I.Emma Movielover's 'Fargo' Quiz!

Answer: McDonald's

Wade: 'He just ate, didn't finish. He's goin' to McDonald's instead of finishing here.' Jean: 'He sees his friends there-- it's okay.' Wade: ''Okay', McDonald's. What do you think they do there? They don't drink milkshakes, I assure you.' Jean: 'It's okay, dad.'

17. All told, how many people are killed in this film?

From Quiz "Fargo": You're Darn Tootin'!

Answer: 7 & seven

Carl's partner, Gaeor Grimsrud, kills the state trooper, and then the two innocent spectators in Brainerd. That's three. Carl kills Wade, and then the parking lot attendant on his way out. That makes five. When Carl gets back to the hideout, he learns that Grimsrud has killed Jeanie Lundegaard. That's six. Finally, Grimsrud kills Carl, dismembers him, and grinds up as much of him as he can in the wood chipper. That's a total of seven murders.

18. At the supper table, while discussing a deal in Wayzata that Jerry had apparently brought up earlier with Wade, the two men have a misunderstanding over a double meaning of a phrase. What is this phrase?

From Quiz I.Emma Movielover's 'Fargo' Quiz!

Answer: A lot

Jerry: 'Wade, have ya had a chance to think about, um, that deal I's talkin' about, those forty acres there in Wayzata?' Wade: 'Ya told me about it.' Jerry: 'Yeah, you said you'd hafta think about it. I understand it's a lot of money-- ' Wade: 'It's a heck of a lot. What'd you say you were gonna put there?' Jerry: 'A lot. It's a--' Wade: 'I know it's a lot.' Jerry: 'I mean a parking lot.' Wade: 'Huh, well, 750,000 is 'a lot'.'

19. According to the film's final lines of dialogue, how much longer will it be before Marge Gunderson gives birth?

Both Marge and her husband Norm wistfully say "Two more months" at the very end of the film.

From Quiz I.Emma Movielover's 'Fargo' Quiz!

Answer: Marge Gunderson

Frances McDormand is the wife of Joel Coen. (The other Coen brother is Ethan.)
