Here are the questions, with answers below. Try and match them yourself, then listen to the audio (as soon as its up) for the answers!

1.) Quote: "I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it."

2.) Quote: "I had a colonoscopy once, and they let me watch it on TV. It was more entertaining than ___."

3.) Quote: "This movie doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels."
