Famous Last Lines Quiz


Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

A few years ago I probably would have been able to figure out more of them. Unfortunately, now I only know the obvious. Three is "A Tale of Two Cities" and the next (may be) The Wizard of Oz". I guess the Internet would have told me the rest, but I did not want to cheat.

I gave it more thought and the only character in a book that I know who has the name Jem, is Scout's brother in "To Kill a Mockingbird". How could I not get that right away? It is my favorite book. I will blame it on the late hour I am writing this.

Hi Arleen. Thanks for your answers. For the moment my lips are sealed. You probably could Google all of the answers - that's how kids do their homework these days but, as you say, that would be cheating!

How odd that last lines seem so much harder to remember than first lines. I could only get no.3 without googling, and Arleen has already provided the answer to that one.

I have 'A Tale of two Cities', The Wizard of Oz' and 'Frankenstein' the others elude me. I too have just posted a game, feel free to go and join in *grins*.

Joanne: The funny thing is that when you learn the answers they seem so obvious!

bazza said...

AC: I couldn't possibly comment about the correctness of your answers. By the way, are you saying "I'm so glad to be home again!" is Frankenstein? :-)

David said...

Hi bazza,
Long time no comment! 1) is definitely "To Kill a Mockingbird". 2) I don't know, but I'll have a guess at Carson McCullers' "The Heart is a Lonely Humter". 3) is definitely "A Tale of Two Cities". 4) is, I think, "The Wizard of Oz". 5) is definitely "Frankenstein". And 6) I don't know, but I'll have a crazy guess at Peter Benchley's "Jaws".
Wow, that was fun, bazza!
Anyway, I hope you and yours are all well and ok.
Very Best Wishes,

Hi David: Yes we are getting nearer with some intelligent guesswork but no cigar yet!

John said...

Hi Bazza! Being a stupid, illiterate fool I only have an answer for number 3, being 'A tale of two cities'! However, I wish to point out the terrible grammar in number one, 'waked up'! Only an American would write such bad English! ;)

bazza said...

You're right John, number one is American but they have their own rules. Maybe its time for another of my American versus British English posts!

1. To Kill a Mockingbird
2. The Catcher in the Rye
3. A Tale of Two Cities
4. (Don't know for sure. Maybe Wizard of Oz.)
5. Frankenstein
6. (I don't know. Jaws?)

bazza said...

Very impressive Sherry! I will give the complete answers in a couple of days.

bazza said...

OK here are the answers:
1) To Kill a Mockingbird
2) The Catcher in the Rye
3) A Tale of Two Cities
4) The Wizard of Oz
5) Frankenstein
6) Lord of the Flies

So: First Prize (a bucket of kudos) goes to Sherry! Well done everyone.

Sherry Ellis said...

I should've known, Lord of the Flies! I'm pretty proud of myself for getting most of these. I guess my high school English teachers did their jobs!

bazza said...

Yes they did well. Congratulations!
