TEN-HUT! Time to go all bootcamp on your brain with this quiz-only episode. Are you a cake person or a pie person? Sweeten your day with Karen's quiz on dessert flavors and wacky names. Sprint across the finish line with Colin's music segment "Cut to the Chase!" and see if you can identify some of the most iconic movie chase scene scores. Chris prepared us a (very, very hard) literary author pseudonym test as well as a reprise of GIRL vs. BOYS. Think you know your nursery rhymes? Then see how high you can score on Dana's Mother Goose challenge.

ALSO: "Call the Doctor" and country anagrams.

RUNTIME: 48 minutes 43 seconds

I loved Colin's "Cut to the Chase" quiz! I am also a sucker for 80's movies and have seen all of Colin's examples many times over. Other great ones include:

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
Beverly Hills Cop

and of course Jaws

Is 1000 "Blueys" a "KBluey?" Because I am 100% behind that idea.
