JEOPARDY! ROUND: Which Document
Came First?, Musical Settings, Bible Briefs, 4-Letter "V"ords, I'd
Like To Thank, The Economy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences
Harris begins with $200 The Economy of
Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Tony finds the Daily Double under
$800 Musical Settings. He bets $1000 on this: the Cook County Jail
in the 1920s is the setting for much of this show. "What is
'Chicago'?" RIGHT for $2000! He is tied with Harris for the leads
with $4800. Susan's $4400 gives her command of the board to
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Oprah's Book Club Classics, War of the Words,
Food & Drink Science, Margaret Me, Saints & Their Cities, '90s
... with $400 '90s Music. Tony
finds the first Daily Double under $2000 War of the Words. Tony
bets $1600 on this: this old-timey term for hand-to-hand combat
starts with a hand ready to strike a blow. "What is fisticuffs?"
RIGHT for $16,400! He could complete the Triple Double with $800
Oprah's Book Club Classics. He puts three on this: in 2004 Oprah
reached back to this 19th century classic about an adulterous
Russian wife. "What is 'Anna Karenina'?" RIGHT for $19,800! He
ends with $21,000 to $12,800 for Susan. Harris is on $9200 and
what started as a close thing is no longer.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "French Monarchs": his reign was
interrupted for "100 Dyas" in the 19th Century before he was
restored & reigned for 9 years more. Correct response:
who was Louis XVIII?
came to town and Louis XVIII went down. Harris was the only one to
get it right to pull out the win with another $16,700, giving him
$39,700 for two!

Chill", by watching Dwayne Johnson, we were sorting the weekend
pile. Tonight's #HashtagWars, because of the whole Brexit thing, #VisitBritainBecause.
We're all knotted up at 700.

Tonight's Live Challenge is I'll Fight for YOU! None of the law

as The Orlando Firm. Create your own low-budget law-firm
commercial. Mike gets the 1000.
