When former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell's (R) corruption trial began a few weeks ago, we published a quiz that asked you to tell whether the unbelievable scenarios we described were fictitious, or details that would be unpacked in great detail in a courthouse in Richmond, Va.. You did not do so well; the average score was 5/11.

It has only become more fascinating since. (And you should be reading our liveblog 24/7 to keep up with it.) Since the first quiz, many more things have been said that wouldn't feel out of place in a '90s romantic comedy. We dare you to try to tell the difference.

Is this line of dialogue from the Bob McDonnell trial or Hugh Grant romantic comedy? Click to find out. 

Telling the difference between Hugh Grant and Bob McDonnell is a quiz for another day.
