"Back Up" ? That's new on me and I've been an Actor's Equity member for over 30 years. Understudy, Cover, Stand-In, Swing... all of those are used to refer to someone in an understudy situation, I've been paid extra a number of times to be a "Swing" (which is understudying more than one role in a given show) but never have I heard "back up". What country of the world is that expression used in? UK? Canada? Australia? Its not at all familiar here in the USA - is "Back Up" a sports term? (In which case, "understudy" as an equivalent is not at all appropriate).

I've heard "alternate", as well, in dance.

back up is the person behind the starting player in sports just as the understudy is to the starting cast member. if you don't see the familiarity then that speaks volumes to the american education system

Wouldn't the alternative to "on the rocks" be "neat"? Straight up is alcohol with no mixers. I suppose that is nitpicky, in't it?

The most accurate answer would simply be "up" which means chilled with no ice, with or without mixers. "Neat" means straight from the bottle, no mixers, no ice, etc. For example, a drink like a manhattan is commonly ordered either up or on the rocks, never neat because 1) it's a cocktail and 2) room temperature manhattans are gross.

"Straight up" is kind of vague and can probably mean either depending on the order

Yes he did, in Star Trek IV. Exact line is "Scotty, beam me up", which contains within it the phrase "Beam me up".

Never heard the rubber hose one. Is that popular in certain locales?

my least favourite of all the "contains" quizes. (and looking at the scores I might not be the only one) I dont mind doing badly on quizzes at all. But I think the quality of the questions might be better. And before people start saying well make your own quiz then. That is irrelevant. I might or might not. It wouldnt change this quiz. And no it is not disrespectfull to the quizmaker either. I think he makes many great ones, some easy some hard, this one in my opinion is just below the usual standard.

Couldn't "split-up" also be the end of a relationship?

Nice quiz thanks. I've never heard of the answer for the apartment clue. In the UK we call this a duplex, which coincidentally also contains the word 'up'. I realise duplex has a different meaning in the US
