Quiz Description

The television show Archer, which is about to begin its seventh season, is rife with allusions, both well-known and obscure. In this quiz, I ask about twelve of them. Although you won't need to have watched the show to get these, it certainly won't hurt!

Several of the prompts are taken directly from the script; I've replaced the allusion with [*]. In some cases, I've provided additional information to help you zero in on the correct answer.
