Maggie uses "How Green Was My Valley" as part of her morning green room spiel ("It's Alex's favorite movie, he cries every time he sees it.") For the life of me, though, I can't remember what rule she's discussing that she uses it as an example. Perhaps another of the recent contestants will know.

Wild guess: Just because your reply is already a question doesn't mean it is by default a question for their "correct response" purposes.

ooh, i should really know this, since i've heard the spiel five times in the past three months. "it's about welsh coal miners, but it was filmed in malibu. i didn't feel so bad for them once i found that out." but i can't remember the context either. it's not about an answer that's already a question, because that's actually not part of the spiel. i *think* it's about what to do if your pen stops working during FJ—you've already written "what is how green was my" and then you just use the marker and finish on the green card before the think music ends.

I think you're exactly right, Joon. Thanks!
