Baffled Zachary Quinto plays rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock

Zachary Quinto obviously isn't a fan of those uber-geeks from The Big Bang Theory, as evidenced by his confusion when an interviewer challenged him to a game of "rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock"—but luckily, the actor proved to be a fast learner.

Quinto, while on a press tour for his movie Margin Call, was challenged to play the game, which was introduced on an episode of The Big Bang Theory. The rules, for those of you who might be in the same boat as Quinto and have never seen the show, take off on the traditional rock-paper-scissors and are as follows:

Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.

So how did Spock ... um, Quinto ... do?

So what else did you expect?
