I would have gotten this one right but for the wrong reason. I was thinking of Spiro Agnew's resignation.

And here's where I might have gone home. I've never seen the movie but for some reason thought Bradley Whitford was the right answer. I hope I might have had sense enough to use a lifeline, though.

A bowling lane is 60' long, so doing some off the cuff math...100x60 is 6000, 16x60=960, so that gives us 6960. 2 miles would be over 10,000 feet, and 2/3 mile is around 3600, so it has to be B.
