You got 10 out of 10 - Did you cook up something good on this quiz or were your answers a little underdone? Pleasantly suprised by my score as I am not a huge fan. But these are running gags so if you see them only a few times they tend to stick with you.

10 of 10. Not everybody's favorite, and not every episode is a knee-slapper, but GA is one of my all-time faves.

9 out of 10! Just forget what was playing when Oliver gave one of his speeches.
Never figured out why he always wore the suit if he wanted to be the "American Farmer"
