Want to sell us on an upgrade over the T-800 cyborg we currently own? Let's see one catch a bullet with its teeth. That was how Kate (Claire Danes) discovered that the T-850 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) was a cybernetic organism. How did the viewer discover that the T-X (Kristanna Loken) could alter its appearance at will?

Pulp Fiction
(1) The opening scene in the diner included some dialogue that defined the meaning of the word. (2) No, it wasn't (3) The size of the clothes was the only noticeable difference. (4) The contents glimmered whenever the case was opened so it was probably some type of gold, but our favorite theory is the one that makes a case for Marsellus' soul.

(5) 6 + 6 + 6 = 18 which was the number of piercings that Jody (Rosanna Arquette) had. (6) Vincent (7) The Douglas Sirk steak that Vincent ordered. (8) He probably felt that Marsellus was the lesser of the two (three) evils. (9) Leave town and never come back.


Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
She enlarged her breasts when she was pulled over for speeding. Forget the T-850, we'll take one of those.
 
Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

Full quiz available in Volume 1 of Lights, Camera, Trivia
2. When we first saw Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson), they were on their way to Brett's (Frank Whaley) apartment to take care of some unfinished business. Was the nature of that business discussed during their initial conversation?

3. The suits that were worn by Vincent and Jules were nearly identical but not indistinguishable. In what way did they differ?

4. The contents of the briefcase were never revealed, but one thing is certain, it wasn't cash. What makes us say that?

5. The briefcase had a three-number combination that seemed easy enough to remember. What we want you to do is to add those numbers together. You should come up with a two-digit number that references a character in the film. Tell us who and how it would
apply to that person.

6. The song Son of a Preacher Man included a line ("Being good isn't always easy") that could have applied to any character in the film. Who was onscreen when those lyrics were heard?

7. At least a half-dozen films were referenced in the story - some so obscure it wouldn't be fair to test you on them (Charley Varrick to name one). If Quentin Tarantino asked Roger Avary to come up with a scene that referenced the restaurant scene from When Harry Met Sally, he could have written it in like this… Jules has stopped by Jackrabbit Slims to deliver some urgent news. While he's explaining why it couldn't wait until the following morning, a waiter that's dressed like Zorro comes over to the table to ask Vincent and Mia (Uma Thurman) if they'd like anything else. Before either one can answer, Jules
remarks, "I'll have what he's having." What would he have been referring to if he said that?

8. This next question probably falls under the category of, Your guess is as good as ours, but it needs to be asked. Butch (Bruce Willis) would have killed Marcellus (Ving Rhames), or vice versa, if it weren't for Maynard's (Duane Whitaker) intervention. So, why did he risk his life to save him after he escaped?

9. Marsellus told Butch that he'd spare his life for saving his, but there were two conditions - he didn't want him saying a word to anyone about what happened in the pawn shop. He also had to agree to do what?
The word "Pulp" was defined in the film's prologue as "A magazine or book containing lurid subject matter and being characteristically printed on rough, unfinished paper." What scene first defined the meaning of the word "Lurid"?
Quentin Tarantino, 1994
