Apparently November is the month of getting naughty. Two of our favorite Chos, John and Margaret, have stepped back into the spotlight with "A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas," which opened Nov. 4, and "Cho Dependent," which screens Saturday at the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, respectively. This wacky duo make for some pretty crazy interviews -- so crazy, in fact, that we're not sure you'll be able to tell the difference. See if you can match the quotes below to the Cho who said them.

If you've seen any of Margaret Cho's stand-up, you know that she LOVES talking about her mother. Like, obsession level. On her 2001 tour, “I'm The One That I Want,” she details a message her mom left on her answering machine. “ARE YOU GAY?? ARE YOU GAY?? ... If you don't pick up the phone ... that mean you gay. Only gay ... screen call.” (This misses a lot in the translation; you really need to see the facial expressions.) Twelve years later, the 44-year-old Cho (who's married and bisexual, by the way)

Milwaukee Ave. For more info, go to reelingfilmfestival.org...

We get duel love stories in the next "Once Upon A Time. " Airing at 7 p.m. Feb. 19 on ABC, "What Happened to Frederick" finds David (Josh Dallas) being forced to decide between Kathryn (Anastasia Griffith) and Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin). He finally agrees to tell Kathryn about his affair with Mary Margaret, but an earlier promo for the episode shows Regina (Lana Parrilla) telling Kathryn the news. They're could be some slapping and hair-pulling in Storybrooke, folks. And also some flirting.

If you can get over your giggling at the fairytale premise of ABC's"Once Upon a Time"(7 p.m. Sunday, ABC; 2.5 stars out of 4), you're probably going to delight in the new drama from the writers of "Lost. " That's a big "if. " Here's the idea: Characters from a fairytale world that includes Snow White, Prince Charming, Seven Dwarfs, Gepetto, Jiminy Cricket and Rumpelstiltskin have been magically transported by the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) to modern Storybrooke, Maine, without memory of their original identities.

Something tells me Nucky Thompson's shocking move in the Season 2 finale of "Boardwalk Empire" will come back to haunt him. A new teaser for the HBO drama's third season (spoiler alert!) replays in super slo-mo Nucky (Steve Buscemi) gunning down his one-time protege Jimmy Darmody (Michael Pitt), who betrayed his former mentor in a political coup. It's dark and moody, which suggests Nucky will feel the reprecussions of the murder for a long time to come. The most revealing part of the clip shows Nucky looking over Darmody's body,...
