Click on the sentence and drag past the end of the sentence. It took me a couple of minutes to figure it out, too.

Totally cool! I didn't know you could hide answers that way!

On the other hand, I did horribly on this! I'm not good with the movie ones, because I don't watch a lot of romance movies... I watch horror. :) I read romance. ;)

Cool questions! Wish I coulda been there!
