Bit Part Quiz

Testing really obscure knowledge of a TV show you know well.

Any player count
3 minutes per question
Requirements
  • A group who are all of fans of the same TV show
Television

Bit part quizes are for groups who know the TV show they're based upon inside out, as they put obscure knowledge of the show to the test.

Each question takes the form of a line from the show that was spoken by a guest actor - ideally someone who only appeared in one episode. Up to five points are then awarded to each player - one point for correctly guessing each of the four following things, and a bonus point for getting all four right:

  • The actor who spoke the line
  • Their character name in the show
  • The season number in which it occurred
  • The episode/storyline in which it occurred (the quizmaster can adjudicate on this one)

Example

The bit part quiz below is based on the show Friends.

  1. "It's like I want to take a mental picture of you all! Click!"
  2. "You know what would be incredible? If you guys died."
  3. "You wouldn't happen to have a very big fork?"
  4. "Quack-quack, quack-quack!"
  5. "I don't have any great ideas. I am eight."
  6. "I’m just a love machine"
  7. "And don't learn the words. Let the words learn you."
  8. "I don’t hear coconuts banging together."
  9. "Yeah but Jessica doesn't have an English accent."
  10. "Tartlets. Tartlets. Tartlets. The word has lost all meaning."
