10K: Well, I knew he wasn't in Twins.

I would not have gotten "sully" in a zillion years.

30K: Color in cats is on the X chromosome. Black is a color, orange is a color, white is the absence of color. So males, which only have 1 X, can't be tricolors. Tell that to my male cat, orange-&-white stripes with a few black spots.

I don't know why, statistically, there should be more orange males than females. Because tricolor females cut into the "solid black or orange" count I guess, for females.

At any rate, I know A, C, & D aren't true.


50K: No idea. Was AMC around? Contestant thought Barnes & Noble wasn't; I'd say that's wrong. +1 & probably 50/50.

I couldn't figure out what C was, but I knew that D was "Twins" and Tom Hanks wasn't in that movie. Turns out "C" was "Sully".

In the film Southside With You, they went to a movie and bought ice cream, but I don't remember the brands. So I'd either try to remember when they kissed or use 50/50.
