Liz Lemon is actually from White Haven PA and technically Gatsby is from North Dakota, he did change his though.

And did they ever actually confirm that Gatsby was a bootlegger? I thought his past was shrouded in mystery, and that bootlegging was just one of the theories that the women at the first party were talking about.

It is also strongly implied by Nick's conversation with Meyer Wolfsheim, but it is never stated directly.

On the show, just the once, but I believe it is implied in the Joey spinoff that they do make it work this time: "All my friends are married and having kids" or something similar.

Was expecting Jerry Seinfeld to be an answer, but then realized that he's not fictional. At least Kramer was included. Quintessential TV show set in NYC (IMHO).

The youthful age makeup of the quiz taker demographic is well reflected in "Lucy" being under 50%.

She's up to 57% now, but that's still a lot lower than I'd expect, especially with "lovable" in the clue.

Clean sounds very different than clane. Clain claine clayn clayne, with mc or mac in front would be (slightly) understandable, but not McClean

Bonus: If you don’t know which TMNT wields the nunchucks and just start guessing, you’ll get “Don Draper” while trying “Donatello”. (Allowing first names only is very generous!)

Yeah, Ross and Rachel were only married once. They got together multiple times, and maybe it's implied that they'll end up getting married again, but just the once on the show.

I thought Jay Gatsby lived in the fictional town of "West Egg" or something like that.
