Nope. Or is that a cryptic way of saying you found the answer?

Yes. Congratulations!

Can you get the rest of the clues, and decode the quotation itself?

The coveted bonanova Gold Star will be the prize.

Solved clues are edited in red. The main clue is bold.

Still to be decoded is the speaker and the text of the quotation: FF?.

-----------------

  1. Do you sense a Scandinavian odor?
    [Something is rotten in Denmark]

     
  2. It either begins in 'and' or else __ __
     
  3. moe: one final question, sir?
    what would you say is the difference between involvement and commitment?

    joe: certainly. Let me just say this about that:
    to make Ham and eggs, the chicken is involved, while the pig is committed.

     
  4. upon a few bits of text was cast a spell.
     
  5. The quote is English, actually, and, although quite well known, the answer might require some calculation.
     
  6. tragically, There are more things in the clues than are dreamt of in your answers.
    [Mimics a line spoken to Horatio in a famous tragedy].
