"Back Up" ? That's new on me and I've been an Actor's Equity member for over 30 years. Understudy, Cover, Stand-In, Swing... all of those are used to refer to someone in an understudy situation, I've been paid extra a number of times to be a "Swing" (which is understudying more than one role in a given show) but never have I heard "back up". What country of the world is that expression used in? UK? Canada? Australia? Its not at all familiar here in the USA - is "Back Up" a sports term? (In which case, "understudy" as an equivalent is not at all appropriate).

Though it's rarely used, an understudy in sports is a backup. I have actually heard a sports backup (second string) referred to as an "understudy" before. Difficult clue, but not completely lacking. Although I, too, missed it.

back up is the person behind the starting player in sports just as the understudy is to the starting cast member. if you don't see the familiarity then that speaks volumes to the american education system

Wouldn't the alternative to "on the rocks" be "neat"? Straight up is alcohol with no mixers. I suppose that is nitpicky, in't it?

Yes he did, in Star Trek IV. Exact line is "Scotty, beam me up", which contains within it the phrase "Beam me up".

I thought the lines was "Scotty, beam us up." But, I very well could be wrong.

@kitshef's got the right of it. In the scene he is intending to beam up alone.

my least favourite of all the "contains" quizes. (and looking at the scores I might not be the only one) I dont mind doing badly on quizzes at all. But I think the quality of the questions might be better. And before people start saying well make your own quiz then. That is irrelevant. I might or might not. It wouldnt change this quiz. And no it is not disrespectfull to the quizmaker either. I think he makes many great ones, some easy some hard, this one in my opinion is just below the usual standard.
