This one may have a slightly harder meta than the others, though some might find it a bit derivative of another puzzle from somewhere else.

:green: x9 and the meta is essentially correct, though the solution is a tad more elegant.

Correct. And the arrangement of the numbered scenes matches the title: A noun is a person, place or thing. For example, PROFESSOR (Amanda) PLUM(mer) in the CONSERVATORY with the REVOLVER. Oh, and especially well done for recognizing that I was looking for Arsenio HALL rather than a church.


BTW, non-FWers literally take days to figure these out, even when I give multiple clues.

We've been trained by the best.

Spoiler for A little, slightly related, bit of sldawgs trivia, in the style of IMDb Trivia
In that scene in Coming To America, Eddie Murphy's character is named Randy Watson. I have an uncle named Randy Watson.
