  Jose's looking for some weekend cash against...
Jose Garriga
Washington, DC
communications specialist
Natalie Kistner
Plano, TX
director of business development
Richmond Curtiss
Palm Springs, CA
location coordinator

Jose starts with $200 How Innovative!, finding the Daily Double under $600 UN International Years. He only bets $500 on this: 2004, commemorating the struggle against this & its abolition, which sadly still hasn't happened. "What is slavery?" Right for $2700! He ends up with $7700 at the half to Natalie's $4600. Richmond has $3000 and the first go in Double Jeopardy!...

... with $1200 "UT". Jose finds the first Daily Double under $1600 Historical Fiction. He fronts $2100 on this: "That Fateful Lightning" is "a novel of" this Civil War general looking back on his life while he's dying of cancer. "Who is Grant?" RIGHT for $15,000! Richmond finds the other under $1600 Geographic Nicknames. He bets $5000 on this: mountain range that forms "the backbone of Italy". "What are the Appenies?" Missing an n. It was the Appenines, leaving him with $2000, where he ends the round. Natalie has $11,000 to Jose's $19,800.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "Authors & Filmmakers": this author had a bitter feud with Michael Moore over the title of a 2004 documentary. Correct response: who is Ray Bradbury?

This one seems like a softball for a Friday... and yet the challengers miss it. Jose wins another $22,001, giving him $38,402 for two.

Congratulations. We've reached the end of the week. That means we get to see Alissa Hodges, Larae Frers, Jesse Mitchell & Shelle Zechar bid on a set of Ariva jewelry in the TPIR Jewelry Box. Shelle gets the $1300 jewelry and a shot at a really BIG shiny shiny... a 2015 JAGUAR XF in 3 Strikes. The numbers: 1, 2, 3, 5, 7. She gets the 1 on the fourth swing....


... then strike 1 on the sixth... and strike 2 on the 11th. The 1-2 pitch... is strike three. The car was $52,731.

Alissa hopes to recover from that with a $799 pair of digital cameras. $500 for a perfect bid is a pretty good start. But how about a Sea-Doo in Double Prices. It's either $9008 or $6084. She goes with $6084... YES!

Nicholas Potts gets a $1398 pair of patio heaters. Next up, some more outdoor fun with a patio sofa group with projector & screen, all by hitting the Bullseye. Texas Pete hot sauce is first. He goes with three. Each one... $2.19. Three... $6.57. Maruchan ramen. He takes three. Each one... $1.79. Three... $5.37. Finally, Pictsweet edamame. He takes three yet again. Each one... $2.79. Three... $8.37. So Nicholas here was just shooting for the target. He's got a better than fair chance of finding the hidden bull. Where are you, bully? You're... fueled by ramen! Nicholas breaks a tie in the Showcase Showdown by beating the other two.

Larae kicks off the second half of play with a $1807 Galaxy phone with service. Now to try for a recumbent exercycle, a sauna, and a 2015 Nissan Juke in Master Key. She gets one key from an $86 bread maker. That key opens... the sauna.

Sarah Clark goes down and up thanks to this week's PLoW, valued at $2435. She'll show off her look in Cancun (6n @ the Beach Palace) If she wins Pick-a-Number. The board: $_202. The numbers of great importance: 6, 7, 9. She picks 6... and gets picked. It was the 7.

Finally, Jesse has one last shot at a set of cookware. The price: $600. Winner... Aamyie Ecker. She'll get paddleboards, a grill, a dishwasher, and an HDTV on a $7000 Shopping Spree. She picks the paddleboards... $2300. Grill... $3495. She's $1205 away from a win. She goes with the dishwasher... $1449! Aamyie's also a winner at the Showdown.

First up in the Showcase, Rachel's minding your matters with a dining room with dinnerware & stemware, an iMac, and a trip to China (6n @ Shanghai). Top winner Nicholas passes, and Aamyie bids $22,000. Nicholas hits the links with golf clubs for him & her, a golf trip to South Carolina (5n @ The Kiawah Island Golf Resort), and a 2015 VW Golf. He bids $22,000 as well. So it's a matter of who's got the lower-priced Showcase (without going under). Aamiye's Showcase... $29,979. Nicholas's Showcase... $26,798! Nicholas wins it! He takes home $36,490.

  Andy Blackett (Somerville, MA) goes into this episode with $33,600 through 9 questions, and with ATA remaining.

He gets $10,000 from the 10th, bringing his total up to $43,600 as he enters Classic Millionaire...

The first line of what Shakespeare play is simply, "Who's there?"
A: King Lear
B: Macbeth
C: Hamlet
D: Romeo and Juliet

Andy has read all of those except A. He doesn't remember this, though, so he asks the audience. 39% say B, while C and D are tied at 23% each. Andy was leaning towards B, remembering that that play opened in a cave with some witches. He decides to go with B... but it's C! Well, at least he gets $25,000 for his efforts!

Christopher Keogh (Danbury, CT)
(+1): His fiancée, Mandy

He jumps the 5th, leaping over $3,000. For the 6th, he asks the audience as well as his Plus One, and their help nets him $100. He has $38,100 when he sees this...

In U.S. News & World Report's 2014 rankings of the Top 10 national universities, there were two colleges from each of which two states?
A: New Jersey & Ohio
B: Texas & Michigan
C: Massachusetts & California
D: Maryland & North Carolina

Christopher considers which colleges are in each state, and he ends up leaning towards C. However, he decides to walk with $19,050! As for the answer, it is indeed C.
