I'd argue if a couple of these are cliches, but there's no crying in JetPunk either. Fun quiz.

Haha - agreed. Seinfeldisms/TV lines are not cliches, no matter how well known.. In that case, the quiz should include, "To the moon, Alice," "You look mar-vel-ous!" and "Lucy, you've got some 'splaining to do." But still fun, thanks!

May I also point out dead men tell no truths, no laws, no stories, nobody, no facts and no news. Point being, literally any noun could go there.

I'm sorry, but as far as I know being "worse for wear" is a well known idiom, particularly used for drunkenness, but could just mean being ill or below par. I'm not aware that "no worse for wear" is a thing. (UK English)

It's deffo a thing. If you fall over and pick yourself up and someone asks if you're alright, you might say you were no worse for wear.

The cliché is honour among thieves and worse for wear, not no honour

Very common saying here - it's from pretentious nightclubs that only let people in if they follow a dress code. Horrible places.
