BABY, I THINK

TO MAKE IT

Daily Double: $1000 City Folk. Justin's in the middle between $2000 for Brooks and $3600 for Patrick. "I got in trouble for this before, but fortune favors the bold. Let's make this a True Daily Double." The clue for all or nothing... last name of the first Democratic President elected after the Civil War. "Who is Johnson?" No, it was Grover Cleveland, dropping him back to zero.

At the end of Jeopardy!... Justin is starting to crack.

LAST LINES

Daily Double #1: $800 Poetic Last Lines. Brooks trails by $2000, but he has the leader Patrick covered. He bets that much on this: "Poems are made by fools like me", Joyce Kilmer justly wrote, "but only God can" do this. "What is make a tree?" CORRECT FOR THE TIE and $6600!

Daily Double #2: $1200 Works of Art. Patrick only bets $1000 of his $9400, wanting to keep his stash for the final wager. The clue: like a Rodin work, a carving by Brancusi of 2 lovers embracing is called this. ... No idea. It was "The Kiss", leaving him with $8400.

At the end of Double Jeopardy!...

$8,600 $11,400 $8,400
Brooks Justin Patrick

Justin only has to bet $4600 to overtake a double-up on Brooks' end. BUT HE MUST BE CORRECT. Otherwise, it's all about Patrick and Brooks betting against each other.

Final Jeopardy! category: THE 1960s

 

ON NOMINATING THIS MAN IN 1967, LBJ SAID "IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO, THE RIGHT TIME TO DO IT, THE RIGHT MAN & THE RIGHT PLACE"

 

Correct response: who was Thurgood Marshall?

Patrick's response: who is T. Marshall? CORRECT. Wager: $8311. Total: $16,711.
Brooks' response: who is Fortas? WRONG. Wager will not matter.
Justin's response: who was Robert Kennedy? WRONG. Wager will not matter.

It was Justin's game to lose... and he lost it. His loss...
