Official answers to Day 1 will be posted in a few minutes. Look for a spoiler box near the Answer form. Please don't peek until you've played that day. You can still play any past days until Sunday night/Monday morning and have the points count for the Weekly Winner race.

Also, we have our first guest writer today. Thanks to Peggles for today's top category. 30 points, and untold thanks, are headed your way.

by Peggles

2: Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner have played this archer from Sherwood Forest.

4: For it's second season, "Come On, Get Happy" replaced "When We're Singing" as the theme song to this series.

6: Last name of the Johnny Depp captain inspired by a ride at Disneyland.

8: In this John Grisham thriller, a reporter and a law student solve the murders of two Supreme Court justices.

10: The title of this Robert Redford movie about a CIA employee the agency is trying to kill refers to half of the period of time in the otherwise-similar James Grady novel.

PUT THEM IN PHYLUM

6: Tarantulas, brine shrimp, houseflies.

9: Geoduck, chambered nautilus, limpit.

12: Sea cucumbers, sea urchins, sand dollars.
