Okay.
If I assume that you don't count the note from the "Lady of the Lake", which is pretty funny :=3 , because Gen. Blither has the note when the strip "opens", the count could either be 4 or 6.<P>The fourth is when Arthur gets the clipboard, which has notes on what to do, from the counselor in the summer camp story arc.<P>Now, here is where it may get confusing. Are you counting the two notes to "self".
They are:
1. Arthur while holding the Black Knight's helmet and him commenting on wearing armor during a lightening storm
and
2. Lady Drewdrop after getting "flamed" by a startled dragon. She comments about startling a sleeping dragon.<P>

Aziraphale's responses, [and mine[/b]
68. When Arthur climbs out of the hole.
<B>I was thinking of something a bit more "social"</B>
71. Arthur, when she changes size.
<B>That's one example, but not the only one</B>
72. When he tells the Black Knight to let him do all the talking.
<B>That's one example, but not the only one</B>
77. Col. Thunder, and Col. Beowulf
<B>There are more.</B>
79. Arthur: 1
Scott: 12
<B>Right track, but read the question carefully!</B>
83. That's not a question, that's a statement!
<B>Apologies, fixed it. It now says:
83. Mopsy can be provoked into attacking. When does this happen?
</B><P>92. Mopsy, right about now.
<B>I'll take it -- point for you.</B><P>101. Lady Dewdrop with Lt. Bristle, and Col. Beowulf with Mopsy
<B>But wait, there's more!</B><P>108. When ever she raises her hand.
<B>But wait, there's more!</B><P>112. When he incerates the Black Knight?
<B>This is a trick question. Notice anything unusual about it?</B><P>115. When Col. Beowulf smashes the bulldozer through the wall at the bitty-burger construction site.
<B>The expression 'fourth wall' refers to the "front wall" of the comic strip, between the characters and the audience -- the expression "breaking the fourth wall" refers to characters interacting with the apparent knowledge that they <I>are</I> characters, or actors, in a comic strip. For example, interacting with the audience, or in the case of comic strips, interacting with or referring to the author. <P>I've addressed "looking at the audience" elsewhere, but there is at least one occasion where something more significant happens...</B><P>117. "I wanna go home!"
[b]Scott appears in more than one strip, so he's not a "one shot". Even so, I was thinking of something a little more eloquent. <P>Hamlet's "To be, or not to be..." speech is an example of a soliloquy, a speech that, while ostensibly to oneself, is really to get a point across to the audience.<P><P>------------------

86. I'd say Agatha, but she's got three horns... The Dark Lord, perhaps?
<B>The Dark Lord it is, and we'll neatly bypass the distinction between horns and antlers -- unless the Gneech has a bone to pick with me on this.{g}</B><P>109. December 13, when Blither orders a dozen... somethings that go BOOM.
<B>Nope.</B><P>49. When wishing good luck to Col. Beowulf and Mopsy, as they hurried back to Arcadia, he says, "Good... um... luck." So, the answer is '... um...'
<B>That's not what I was thinking of, and it's only that 'um' isn't really a word that lets me get out of this.{g}</B><P>59. When the Queen puts on whiskers and big floppy ears.
<B>Yes. There are other occasions, but they are all smaller and less obvious -- drawing antennae when the entire character is very small is problematic. Your point.</B>
69. (Embarassing question, annoyed responses)(October 4, 1998)(April 13, 1999)(October 12, 2001)
<B>Great, I like it</B><P>85. November 5 & 8, 1998<P>87. I counted 4 different signs.
<B>Yes you did. But I didn't.{g}</B><P>91. October 25, 1998
<B>Yes. There's one other occasion, if anyone spots that I'll give them a point as well.<P>Pooka..? Pookas..? Out of curiosity, what is the correct way to pluralize pooka?
[b]Well, The Gneech would be the final authority of course. However, as Pooka is derived from old Irish/Scottish folklore ("phouka, phoukas"), and is not a Latin-derived word, standard pluralization seems to work. So, "pookas" should be fine. I see many references this way in literature.</B><P>Speaking of which, where did Literature go?<P>

<B>Hard to fault your logic. {g}</B><P>And from now on, I'll post the questions as well as the answers. Sorry for any and all confusion.
<B>Okay. I will pick up only the "different" answers from your previous post.</B><P>71. Who looks up to Mopsy?
Arthur, Col. Beowulf, Gnorman, the Delivery Gnome, and Uncle Matthew.
<B>Yes, but I am specifically looking for instances not just based on the normal difference in height between characters. Everone on your list is good, except for the delivery gnome who's a short critter compared to Mopsy's normal "faerie-relating" height. So, there's at least one more out there.<P>A hint -- there is a connection to The Visit to my office...</B><P>77. What characters appear in multiple panels with moustaches?
<B>Col. Thunder, Col. Beowulf, the Captain at Fort Knox, Cunstruction Guy Burt, Counselor Larry, Mark's Father, and Blither.</B>
<B>Yep! Hard work, this was -- abd your point.</B><P>79. How many does a character repeat

<B>105. When do rodents appear in the story?<P>At the very beginning, when Col. Beowulf is caught in the mousetrap, and when Lt. Bristle shows Lady Dewdrop how they train cats.</B><P>Hamsters are rodents, right? So, also when we see Beowulf's war-hamster.
But I'm sure this is some vile trick question and there's actually a mouse craftily hidden in every panel of the strip between 12/12/99 and 3/14/00 or something.<P><P>------------------

I'm reposting my last two answers because I don't think they've been... uh, answered.<P>107. When should we have known that Jenny would be a continuing character?<P>Either when the archive page on <A HREF="http://www.gneech.com" TARGET=_blank>www.gneech.com</A> had an excerpt from a book about Arthur saying that Jenny's influence on Arthur's future could not be understated (or something like that), or when someone on this forum noted that Jennifer=Guinivere?<P>114. How many times is the Colonel captured?<P>Once in a bag by Goblins, once by the guards at Fort Knox, and once by the Gnomeco trap during summer camp. That's all I remember. WAIT... which "the Colonel?" I don't believe Colonel Thunder has ever been captured. Nor has Colonel Sanders, not that he or his fast food franchise have ever appeared in NeverNever...
Or maybe this is a sappy trick question and Mopsy metaphorically "captured" Beowulf!
I'll get one of these right one of these days.<P>

either that or when she is shown Arcadia and the way to get there.<P>BTW, is why is someone asking for directions to Arcadia like a certain song? :=3<P>------------------
