Movie or TV show you always watch when it comes on screen, no matter what: It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
If you could travel back in time, what period would you go to?

Favorite fictional librarian? None of them.
Favorite fictional detective? Ross Macdonald's hardboiled LA detective Lew Archer.
Favorite Austen character? Catherine Morland from Northanger Abbey, because she's Jane Austen's most comic heroine and most misguided.
