Jaw dropping moment...never heard of the Qing dynasty. I put the letter Q and just started guessing vowels after it (assuming it wasn't followed with 'U'). Qa, Qe, and Qo looked stupid, so i tried Qi...that didn't work, so I added an 'N.' Qin sounded pretty good...but still didn't work. It needed to sound more..."Chinese-y." So i hit 'G' and to my shock...it was right. This was so lame, but there wasn't anyone around to see it and I had to brag a bit.

I thought about 55 days at peking; Charlton Heston's *amazing* performance. "A soldier's pay buys a soldier's woman!"

If you want to some some mega old school racism, thats your movie. Most of the characters are Chinese but none of the actors are.

Carry: Same here. Just substituted "Q" for the "M". "Q", "M" and "W" seem to pop up frequently in Chinese, but didn't think that a "W" would be followed by an "i"..

Qualaquin should be accepted for the anti-malarial drug. It's the brand name one. (I have lots of pharmacist friends)

It's spelled correctly.

If there were an O instead of an A at the end of the word, that would be referencing the physical building of the legislative body rather than the city.

British word for "line". What am I thinking? When actors forget their lines, do the British say "Queue"?

The British word for 'line' is 'line'. Maybe the clue should say 'line of people'?

I'm British and I've never seen the word 'line' in my life. We are taught that the shortest distance between two points is a straight queue, and you should be patient while you wait in that queue.

What I gain on the Harry Potter questions I always lose on the Simpsons and Family Guy questions. Perhaps I should broaden my cultural horizons and watch an episode of those.

Sep 16, 2015
You certainly would be broadening your cultural horizons if you did so. By watching Family Guy I learned there is a kind of clam which is strangely pronounced "co-hog". The Simpsons mayor is named after Fred the producer of a thousand classic Tom & Jerry cartoons.

I've heard quahog pronounced "kwah-hog" more often than "co-hog" but I think both are acceptable. The clam whose pronunciation really throws me off is geoduck - "gooey-duck".

It's coh-hog. Kwan-Hog is not acceptable in Rhode Island or Southeast Massachusetts.

You could do a lot worse than watching those two programmes. They are are both clever, well-observed comedy with a commentary on various aspects of family and societal life. And they are also stupid and make you laugh.

Bush's VP threw me off for a few seconds until I thought of Bush, sr. Then it was really weird, because for some reason it takes Quayle, but not Dan Quayle. Guess he's not allowed to have a first name since it doesn't start with a Q.

Sure Quayle isn't more than a footnote in history. But this is a trivia site after all. Look up the word trivia. And... it's Q... not all the letters can be winners.

The second part is a joke, for those of you without a sense of humor. Yes, I'm aware there are other more noteworthy answers out there that start with Q. Please refer to the first half of my comment above.
