Once again, we are enjoying a Fun Day Sunday Quiz Game activity created by my frequent commenter and friend, Fabi! Brava Fabi! I enjoy our collaborations, not only because it is fun to collaborate, but someone else (Fabi) does the leg work on the research for this post (Ha!), and I get to focus on Richard Armitage images. Snap!
Fabi researched the Richard Armitage character quotes and I provided the graphics and formatting–and the grading scale below. Fabi really has a nice variety of RA characters included in this quiz game, as well as, she uses some non standard RA character quotes for you to see if you can identify their character. And I will freely admit, that I am glad that I had the answer key for some of the quotes. Ha!
I am also trying a new to me WordPress feature with this post–slideshow. I retrieved Richard Armitage character images closely related to the quotes–or actual scenes for them–that appear in random order in the slideshow as additional clues for you. And as always, a huge thank you and kudos to the RANet site of Richard Armitage career resources–that is designed and developed by Ali–for the images that I use here in this post. RANet may be found at: www.RichardArmitageNet.com
So, enjoy the RA Character Quotes Quiz Game and do let Fabi and I know how you think you’ve done in identifying the characters. I will give you a hint that two of the RA characters have two quotes each–so there are eight RA characters represented in the quiz game. The other characters included just have one quote each. The full answer key will be revealed at 6:00pm CST (Illinois time):
Q1) “Let’s just rest here for a while.” — Guy of Gisborne to Meg, Robin Hood season 3 episode 9
Q 2) “You’re kidding yourself, we both are.” — ) John Standring to Carol, Sparkhouse
Q 3) “You won’t know England in twenty years.” — Ricky Deeming, Inspector George Gently
Q 4) “Our only hope has vanished.” — Lucas North, Spooks season 7 episode 4
Q 5) “Take off one head, two more shall take its place.” — Heinz Kruger, Captain America: The First Avenger
Q 6) “Don’t do anything until you see me again.” — John Thornton to the police inspector, North & South
Q 7) “Stay there, don’t move your foot.” — John Porter to Gerry Baxter, Chris Ryan’s Strike Back episode 6
Q 8) “It’s so romantic round here when you get the juices flowing.” — Harry Kennedy to his sister Rosie, The Vicar of Dibley Christmas Special
Q 9) “Give me the code.” — Lucas North, Spooks season 7 episode 1
