PhillyVoice's 'Quotes of the Week' quiz

How much do you remember from the week that just was?

Quizzes Quotes Of The Week
Quotes Quiz II Lovingly crafted Photoshop/Brian Hickey

Several subjects of this week's Quotes Quiz can be found herein.

Welcome to PhillyVoice’s second weekly quiz about quotes that appeared in our stories during the past week. Fun and educational times lay ahead!

The quotes come from a wide array of topics, so if you’re looking to get a leg up on the competition (in a contest for which the prize is personal pride), keep reading stories from the worlds of news, entertainment and sports.

The answers are tucked at the bottom of each post (with the context available via hyperlink). We will know – and tell everybody – if you scrolled down and illicitly claimed you went 10 for 10. Real talk. 

Away we go!
