Episode 3.4 - Cornell in the House
September 26

Yale... Columbia... Yale again.... All have tried... All have failed. But will Cornell go where no Ivy Leaguer has gone before... to the Million Dollar Question? Time to find out.

Our new student tonight is a Cornell graduate from Belleview Elementary in Denver, PHILLIP TORRES. He's brought with him Peri, a cockroach. He majored in entomology, and Peri will be functioning as a good luck charm.

In the crowd tonight is the Cornell Alumni Association. On the board...

Everyone in the class has it right with... zero!

Here to help with the milestone is Jenna.

3rd Grade US Geography $50,000   COPY SAVE
Pennsylvania borders which Great Lake?

Jenna is in. "I didn't even know it bordered a Great Lake." Phillip goes with Lake Erie. He hopes to get saved. He doesn't have to. It's Lake Erie. The class was wrong. The WHOLE class was wrong.

Two classmates remain. Next up to help is Olivia.

4th Grade English $100,000   COPY SAVE
Which sentence contains a transitive verb?
a) The class ended early.
b) The teacher found his notes.
c) The students excelled.

A transitive verb refers to a non-subject noun. That's according to Phillip. He goes with B. A transitive verb needs a direct object to complete its meaning... so it IS B!

The mouth of the Indus River is in what country?

"Indus" sounds like India, but it's probably not right. "Kids, you shouldn't do this at home, but I'm dropping out of school." He would've said India... but it was Pakistan. But at least he's won more than any other Ivy Leaguer before him.

DROP OUT: $100,000

According to the color wheel, what color is complementary to orange?

Ralph COPIES Olivia's answer. Primary colors are red, yellow, and blue. Secondary colors are orange, green, and purple. The complementary is the primary color which is NOT included. So in this case, it would be BLUE. That's right, and that's what Olivia needs to have written...

Olivia said... RED. Game over.
