Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Carla Goldsmith, Frannie's mother, died long before the superflu came along.

Answer: movie

In the book there is that horrible scene where Frannie's mother treats Frannie very badly when she learns of Frannie's pregnancy. She is conveniently dead before the opening credits in the movie. In a sidenote concerning Frannie's pregnancy, while it was an important aspect of Frannie's character in both the book and the movie, it isn't mentioned until hour three of the miniseries.

It seemed to just come out of left field.
2. Frannie keeps a diary detailing the days after the superflu.

Answer: book

This diary causes much grief later on when Harold finds and reads it.
3. The Kid wreaks havoc as he makes his way towards Las Vegas.

Answer: book

Unfortunately for him, he met a rather untimely and gruesome death in the book. And, just as unfortunate an event in the movie, he never made it in.
4. After the superflu decimated the numbers of New York, Larry fled the city with Nadine.

Answer: movie

He met up with her at the park after the monster-shouter had died on the steps. In the book he met up with the older socialite, Rita, and they left together. Rita met an untimely death when she overdosed on pills.
5. Teddy Weizak was killed by the bomb that also killed Nick and Sue Stern.

Answer: book

In the book, Teddy did indeed die a horrible death. However in the miniseries, Teddy (who coincidentally was played by Stephen King) lived through to the end.
6. In both the book and the movie, Frannie's pre-superflu boyfriend was named Phillip.

Answer: false

In both the book and the movie, poetic Jess was Frannie's boyfriend.
7. We never actually get to meet Jess, Frannie only mentions him.

Answer: movie

In the movie, Frannie only mentions him when she is talking to her father.
8. ONLY in the novel, Tom and Nick hide out in a cellar to wait out a tornado.

Answer: true

This scary little episode never made it into the movie.
9. Stu is from Arnette, Texas.

Answer: both the book and the movie

Stu, the first main character we meet, is from the little town of Arnette, Texas in both the book and the movie.
10. Stu and Frannie name their newborn girl Abagail.

Answer: movie

In the book Frannie has a boy who they name Peter, after Frannie's father. In the movie, the child is now a girl, and they name her after Mother Abagail. Though biologically the baby wasn't Stu's he considered it his.
