Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which of these loving couples did William Shakespeare NOT write about?

Answer: Elizabeth and Darcy

Elizabeth and Darcy, of course, are the main characters in Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" (1813). All the other couples are Shakespearean creations. Rosalind and Orlando appear in "As You Like", Beatrice and Benedick in "Much Ado About Nothing", and Oberon and Titania in "A Midsummer Night's Dream".
2. In the "Bridget Jones" film series, the heroine has relationships with three men. Which one does she end up marrying?

Answer: Mark

At the end of the third film, "Bridget Jones' Baby" (2016), Bridget (Renée Zellweger) finally marries her on-and-off beau, human rights lawyer Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), who also turns out to be the father of her baby. Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) and Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey) are the other men with whom she has more or less meaningful relationships in the three movies of the series, based on Helen Fielding's novels.
3. What is the name of the prince in disguise (famous for his aria "Nessun dorma") who melts the cold heart of the princess Turandot in Giacomo Puccini's eponymous opera?

Answer: Calaf

"Turandot" (premiered in 1926) was Puccini's final work, and was completed by Franco Alfano after the composer's sudden death in 1924. The opera in three acts is almost entirely based on Carlo Gozzi's play of the same name (1762), based in turn on a medieval Persian tale.

The beautiful but cold-hearted Chinese princess Turandot asks three riddles to each of her many suitors: the wrong answer results in death. The exiled prince Calaf (who has fallen in love with the princess at his first sight of her) solves the riddle, but then - faced with Turandot's reluctance - asks her to find out his name in exchange for her freedom.

When the princess finally realizes that she has also fallen in love with the mysterious stranger, Calaf reveals his name, bravely facing death.

A happy ending ensues.
4. Which endearing couple manages to enjoy a short marriage and produce a child before dying in the final volume of the "Harry Potter" series?

Answer: Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks

Remus and Tonks get married some time between the end of the series' sixth volume, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince", and the beginning of the seventh, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". Though Remus is a werewolf (therefore shunned by the wizarding community) and much older than Tonks, she convinces him to marry her.

The two have a child, Teddy, born during the Second Wizarding War, but are both killed during the Battle of Hogwarts. Teddy is brought up by his grandmother, Andromeda, but is to all intents and purposes adopted into the Potter family.
5. Inspired by Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers, "Romeo and Juliet" is a lovely song that has become a classic. What famous English band recorded it in 1980?

Answer: Dire Straits

Written by guitarist/frontman Mark Knopfler, "Romeo and Juliet" was originally included in Dire Straits' very successful third studio album, "Making Movies" (1980); it was then released as a single in January of the following year. The song describes a situation in which "Romeo" has been abandoned by his "Juliet", who has found fame and fortune away from their old neighbourhood.
6. In the popular soap opera "Dallas", Bobby Ewing, younger brother to the villainous JR, marries the daughter of a long-standing rival of his father. What is the lady's name?

Answer: Pamela Barnes

The relationship between Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) and his wife Pamela (Victoria Principal) has often been compared to "Romeo and Juliet", on account of the feud between their families. The first episode of the soap opera, aired on April 2, 1978, and titled "Digger's Daughter", introduced Pamela as Bobby's newly married bride, and showed the Ewings' attempts to break up the couple.

The story of the feud between the Ewing and Barnes families was told in the TV movie "Dallas: The Early Years" (1986).
7. In which animated Walt Disney movie would you find an odd but very sweet couple named Duchess and Thomas O'Malley?

Answer: The Aristocats

Released in 1970, "The Aristocats" was the 20th animated feature film produced by Walt Disney Studios. It tells the story of mother cat Duchess and her three kittens, Marie, Berlioz and Toulouse, and their meeting with alley cat Thomas O'Malley, who saves them from the clutches of the evil Edgar, their mistress' English butler.

The movie has become famous for its jazz-inspired soundtrack, particularly the song "Ev'rybody Wants to Be a Cat".
8. In Homer's "Iliad", Hector, the greatest Trojan hero, has a wife whom he loves very deeply. What is her name?

Answer: Andromache

The meeting of Andromache and Hector in Book 6 Homer's "Iliad" is one of the most poignant episodes of the poem. Born in Thebes, Andromache married Hector, the firstborn son of Priam, King of Troy, and his wife Hecuba, after the death of both her parents and her brother.

The two enjoyed a happy marriage, crowned by the birth of a son, Astyanax. After Hector's death in a duel with Achilles, and Astyanax's subsequent death at the hands of Neoptolemus (Achilles' son), Andromache found herself utterly alone.

In Euripides' tragedy "The Trojan Women", we learn that, when Troy fell, she was taken by Neoptolemus as a concubine, and nearly assassinated by the latter's wife, Hermione. However, when her captor died, Andromache married Helenus, one of Hector's brothers and a fellow slave, and lived to a ripe old age.
9. What animated TV series character has an occasionally spendthrift wife by the name of Wilma?

Answer: Fred Flintstone

In Hanna-Barbera's 1960s series "The Flintstones" (the first of its kind to be broadcast on primetime American TV), Wilma Flintstone's catchphrase is "Da-da-da duh da-da CHARGE IT!". However, she often provides a level-headed foil to her husband's impulsive behaviour. Wilma was played by Elizabeth Perkins in the 1994 film based on the series.

The remaining options are all Hanna-Barbera characters.
10. Backwoodsman Adam marries a young woman named Millie because of the quality of her cooking, but eventually the two fall in love. In what musical film does this happen?

Answer: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

In Stanley Donen's 1954 movie "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers", Adam Pontipee - the eldest of the titular seven brothers - was played by Howard Keel, and his bride Milly by Jane Powell. Though their first meeting and subsequent marriage are rather unromantic (to say the least), the ending is very sweet, as husband and wife realize they have come to genuinely love each other in spite of their differences and the trouble caused by Adam's unruly siblings in their own quest for love.
