1 Fargo
2 The Big Lebowski. Dude.
3 Hooper? Was there something called Hooper, or is that just crazy talk? If that's right, then the ad is lame, and that's probably why I never saw it. But I don't think it's right, because you would have deleted the text.
4 I can't recall, but I think it involved crime. In the woods. And everyone saw it but me. It was called, um, Joey Romano.
5 Barton Fink. You just can't have too many heads rolling around in a movie about writer's block.

I'm afraid no puncuation marks for my trophy case this week, alack.

I actaully remembered it was Monday this morning, so checked out the quiz, then put off answering it all day because it is just humiliating. I really and truly only know one of these - the first: Fargo. If I'd gotten than wrong, Rex would have had my guts for garters. And I think I actually saw the second one.
I just noticed your ClustrMap (really, that one "e" was too much for them?). When we go to New Zealand this summer (winter) I'll be sure to check in so you get another red dot. Don't you wonder who that is in ... I can't quite tell on that tiny map ... Ethiopia?
Next time I'll just answer the quiz, I promise.

5. Barton Fink

Which gives us a whopping six (6) Exclamation Points to pass out tonight.

Chance's 5th MQEQ moves him into undisputed second on the MQ Leaderboard; Phinea's 4th moves him into a tie for third.

Mhwitt takes his 3rd MQ Exclamation Point, and Karin her second.

Finally, we lost two Monday Quiz virgins this week. Dan scored his first Exclamation Point ever, and Dr. Kenneth Noisewater brings home his first bling of any kind in L&TM5K Quiz competition. Well done, gentlemen.
