The winner of the first annual Quote Contest is Lisa Everts ’92 with a whopping 95 points. Thanks to everyone who entered. We’d like to clarify some commonly asked questions. First off, we accepted only what our parents would call LPs as answers for albums. So if a song first appeared on a demo or an EP, we still took its first appearance on a full length as our answer. Also, questions about the form of question 15 arose, as nearly as we can tell, because the shooting script differs from the final film.
