Which of the following episode titles is correctly written, as shown at the start of the episode itself?
- The Lawndale Files
- Speed Trapped
- The Road Worrier
- Dye! Dye! My Darling!
- That was Then, This is Dumb
- Aunt Nauseum
- Through a Lens, Darkly
- Café Disaffecto
. . . none of them are correct. All answers above contain at least one spelling or punctuation error each. The following is how each title actually appears at the start of the corresponding episode. (I checked every one only moments ago.)
- The Lawndale File (no plural for "File")
- Speedtrapped (one word)
- Road Worrier (no "The")
- Dye! Dye! My Darling (no exclamation mark)
- That Was Then, This is Dumb (capitalized "W" but not, for some reason, capitalized "i" —which is an error!)
- Aunt Nauseam ("-am," not "-um")
- Through A Lens Darkly (no comma, "A" is capitalized though it shouldn't be)
- Cafe Disaffecto (no accent mark)
And, yeah, this quiz is very obsessive-compulsive (I don't like calling it "anal"), but that's what editing is all about. It is interesting just how many different ways I have seen these titles written by fans. I've screwed them up, too, so I'm no better. It pays to check the facts, and check them often, even if you are POSITIVE you have it right. I do this all the time (screw up, I mean). Don't do like I do.
- The Lawndale Manifesto, by Smileyfax (Part 1): Now, this is one meeting I've never heard of before. MOAR PLZ!!!!
- Avenging, by Lorenzo Sauchelli (Part 13): The turtle sniffed the air. "I think we're not in Kansas anymore."
- Falling Into College 63: Broken Star, by Richard Lobinske (Part 4): Daria closed her phone and slipped it back into her pocket. It's going to happen one way or the other, so I'd better make it happen under the best terms I can get and I better do it now.
