Monday Trivia and a Logical Question

Amy had to work tonight, and though I was tired after working a turnaround closing shift Sunday and opening today, I went out to play today with our church small group.

We were in 6th place at the midpoint, and leading by 3 points at the end of regulation. We bid 0 on the final bonus and won 2nd place by 1 point. A team with 46 got all 15 and passed us for first.

The final bonus was this - According to the newly updated top 100 American films of all time (as ranked by the American Film Institute), two actors (male) each appear in 6 movies on the list. Name either of these two actors. Most of our team thought we had to name both, so we bet 0, had they known it was one fo the two we would have bet and won with Robert Deniro. The other answer was Jimmy Stewart. I have not looked for the AFI list, but I imagine the Deniro films are Godfather II, Cape Fear, Goodfellas, Raging Bull, and Taxi Driver. We discussed Stewart and had Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Rearr Window, and It's a Wonderful Life.

The fun question (which I got right for us) was on music videos. Name the top 10 song by Wham, for which the video was the first music video by a Western band to be shot in China.

Now for my general logical question, regarding French toast.

If you go to Paris and order toast, do they bring you the bread dipped in egg and grilled, or do they bring you toasted bread with butter and fruit spreads? If it's not the egg stuff, what do you call or request each one?
