4.  Explanation: Order of speaking lines in Shakespeare plays.

King Lear: Kent 1, Cordelia 6, Regan 7
Twelfth Night: Valentine 3, Viola 4, Andrew 8
Hamlet: Francisco 2, Polonius 9

Leaving the speaker #5 in Hamlet, who is King Claudius.

6.  I knew I was on the right track, but I was hungry and I had to go to lunch. So I took an educated guess.

7.  I would kindly ask Score Bard not to post anything right before I am scheduled to go out to eat.

Of course, with Subjective it doesn't matter. I think we should just give For The Turnstiles the 400 points by default.

He's writing like Tennyson while some of us are writing like Rod McKuen.

8.  Tennyson wrote limericks? I much prefer the puzzle categories, but was about 5 minutes too late on this one. I was impressed by how many of these names were also the last names of baseball players. (Is there a scene in Hamlet where Francisco throws a throne?)
