fill in an "f" - The devil may carry.
fill in a "d" - Probably has glasses.
fill in a "c" - Popped at the party.
fill in a "w" - A lot of this went into the first 3.

    $\begingroup$ Boy, I learned a lesson on this one... When you know an answer, don't get caught up making references to Danny Phantom, even if it is season-appropriate, because seeing three answers roll in kinda makes it irrelevant. Nice puzzle, though. I'll have to start using the term pitchdork. $\endgroup$ – raisinghellyer Oct 30 '15 at 19:08
