It is quite difficult to guess exactly the words you want for your answers. For example, I tried "a bad start" for off on the wrong foot and the answer was bad start. Likewise, I tried joke for tongue in cheek, and the answer was humor. The ones that had "never" for an answer, I tried other negative words or phrases and didn't guess the right one. I think you need to accept more variations of your answers.

Still needs more alternatives. Exaggerated, (for over the top) full speed, speed, accelerating,(for pedal to the metal) gibberish, jargon, (for mumbojumbo) silly, panicing (for the chicken), joking (Tongue in cheek)... I loved the Twilight one though! And isn't the lemon in buying a lemon a used car that doesn't work? Or then I got it wrong which is possible. Gave up at a certain point after having tried five or six different things for the "pedal to the metal".

I've added your answers. Gibberish already worked though. Hopefully this makes it better.

Anything with 'car' in it will now work for 'lemon'!

Interesting quiz, although I agree that there are a lot of possible additional answers. I tried "all" as well as "entirety" for whole nine yards, and "get rid of" for eighty-six.
