When in doubt while playing Pyramid, go with Home Alone. The 90s pop culture revival taking place now will surely help you with upping the points. And when you’re an industry insider, (like Girls‘ Lena Dunham) it’s pretty much your guide to a guaranteed gold—or at least a tie.
Last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Lena Dunham partnered up with Hannibal‘s Hugh Dancy for an intense game of Pyramid, while the opposing team featured a hugely competitive Jimmy Fallon and Questlove.
The game started off with Lena choosing the series of phrases first—and she picked well. Home Alone was the title of a roundup of 90s movies, including Forrest Gump and Toy Story. The domination duo passed things to Jimmy who unfortunately chose a category dedicated to words that don’t rhyme with…. anything. Cute, right? But after another round from each team (including one where the majorly swoon-y Hugh Dancy gave clues) things evened out.
