The Thursday Quiz LXII

The Thursday Quiz!

This season, the Thursday Quiz is a sequence game. Arrange the ten items in the proper sequence!

------------
Happy Thanksgiving! This week's Thursday Quiz will be live through at least mid-day Saturday!
------------

Remember always the Fundamental Rules of the Thursday Quiz:
1. The Thursday Quiz is a POP quiz. No research, Googling, Wikiing, or use of reference books. Violators will lose their internet privileges. All of them. Permanently.
2. As long as you made it this far, you might as well play. It's not all about winning, you know. It's about using your knowledge and reason and making an educated guess. C'mon! It'll be fun!

Amazingly, I have seen six of these movies! That's unprecedented for me!

That means nothing for how many of them I can get right, of course, but anyhow.

And I just realized that I misremembered one of them--wrong title to the wrong movie. Dang. But I won't change my answer anyhow. The good news is, it won't matter!

Happy Thanksgiving, 5000s et al!

Here I spent hours studying the relative caloric values of stuffing, turkey, and cranberry sauce, being SURE the quiz would be about food.

You had to be perfect this week to go home with a prize!

The TQLXII Gold Star is the long-awaited return to the highest step on the winner's podium for Rex Parker. His third Gold Star is his first since TQVIII. With three consecutive Star-winning entries, Rex continues to consolidate his position atop the all-time leaderboard.

It's a big week for Boo, who takes the TQLXII Silver Star -- her first Silver and her tenth overall. In so doing, she becomes the latest Quiz legend to complete a set of all four Star colors!

Welcome Annie to the winner's circle! She takes the Blue, her first Star. She is the 45th human to place in the Thursday Quiz!

Finally, Karin is back with a Green Star, her third and her twelfth Star overall!

Special mention to those who only had two adjoining items reversed: Andrea, Cartophiliac, Jenners, la gringissima, MJ, Sandy, and Kadonkadonk!

Well done, all.
