Ashley: "You're gonna miss this / You're gonna want this back / You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast / These are some good times /
So take a good look around / You may not know it now / But you're gonna miss this" Horribly offkey, but she is correct and in the driver's seat.

Patrick needs this...

- 1990, Garth Brooks, "The Thunder Rolls"

Patrick: "Thunder rolls, the thunder"... And Ashley outlasts the guys to win!

Can she seal the deal, though? Seven songs, each one worth $500. Get five before you get three strikes, and you're $10,000 richer.
