When the sun goes down, Ben goes to work. Time for another trip through the streets of Manhattan... at night.

First up... A threesome... And the Handsome Cash Cab.

Tiger... Panther... Puma... and Cheetah are good for $550. The other: Jaguar. They sweep the $100s for a perfect game and $850. But will they take it or go for double on the Video Bonus?

They're going for it!

VIDEO BONUS: As this ant takes a breather on a wide expanse of leaf, we can examine that its body consists of the head, the abdomen, and the articulated area in between. Meaning "breast-plate" in Greek, what is the middle segment of its body called?

Next, a couple of dudes...

Passengers: Tommy & Mitchell
Destination: Maritime Hotel.
Blocks: 32.

First question...

They think about "stallion"... and that's a breed of "STUD".

$100: Founded by Benny Binyon, what Las Vegas casino hosted the World Series of Poker for 30 years?

They go with Golden Nugget... but it was the Golden Nugget. Strike two. The good news is that they have $350 in time for...

$200: While the larger claw of the lobster is called "the crusher", the punier one shares its name with what carpenter's tool?

Street Shoutout at the destination, so this is all for nothing... Fifteen seconds and they can't come up with nothing. Is it the hammer? NO! Sorry. At least you're here. It was the pincer.

Ben gets dinner, and starts the second half with...

John sweeps the first tier for $200. He needs a Street Shout on this..

VIDEO BONUS: When not out for a leisurely stroll, this African variety of antelope is able to leap 30 feet in a single bound. Borrowed from Zulu and co-opted by GM, what is the name of this graceful cousin of the gazelle?
