I suppose this was an easy FJ. I accidentally fast forwarded too far and saw the picture before reversing the direction. I knew the answer before I could hit the return button. I just played back the clue to be sure they got it right. It is possible that the "Governor of NY" might negbait someone who didn't know TR was a Gubernator.

So the doll's head made of porcelain. You figure they would've accepted china? BMSed it?
Anybody NOT get the lach trash on which Shakespeare play has the St. Crispin's Day speech?
Welcome back, El Penguino! I think china is OK unless you meant the country. Would you BMS to People's Republic of China, or to Republic of China? You have been gone a while
. I actually answered "ceramic", and bisque is a generic term for any underfired ceramic green body.
I'll trade you a "meson" for a "Henry V". No way I get there if you spot me Hank and a Roman numeral.
I thought the Physics glossary category was cute, but just went 3/5. After the first vibe from the first two clues, D for daughter was a stumper. I never really considered it an official physics term, but rather as a colloquial usage in the English language. I wonder if they use "sons" in other languages? I couldn't get past "decay". I was also stumped on T for thermonuclear, and kind of question it's value as a synonym. The "T" word is only used to describe bombs as common usage. It's just a fusion reaction otherwise. Of course meson was an easy get, even without the song TPH mentioned, but mostly due to the stamp collection that is the standard model.
