_ _ _ _ _

Lacy takes an early guess with MONOPOLY BOARD...incorrect. Sandra then rings in...

M O N O _ O _ Y

_ O _ E _

...and solves MONOPOLY MONEY for $2,000 in real money.

After an eco-friendly trip to the St. James' Club in Antigua worth $6,450 goes on the wheel, the first round category is Phrase. Sandra lets out a big scream when she lands on the Million Dollar Wedge; she then calls three T's to pick it up. Secondly, she calls an H for a $1,000 Seventh Generation gift package. A little later, she calls an S for the trip. After she next calls the N's, we have...

_ _ _ _ | W I T H

_ _ _ | N _ T _ _ _ _

I N _ _ _ _ I _ N T S

...she buys the A's, then calls the R's for $600, the D's for another $600 and buys the E's. She then calls the L's for another $900 and the Free Spin and we now have...

PERFECT ROUND

Advil PM sponsors tonight's Jackpot/Prize Puzzle Round; category is People. Lacy starts with a $550 T but then a dud of S. Midway in the round, Cody calls an M for the Wild Card. After Cody calls the L, the board reads...

DUDS: S (Lacy)

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: MB0239686

Tonight's Mystery Round is being sponsored by Alavert; category is Before & After. Cody immediately loses his Wild Card to a Bankrupt. A little later, Sandra loses the MDW and $1,300 to a Bankrupt of her own, so she uses her Free Spin. She later hits the Mystery Wedge next to Lose a Turn and calls an L. With only $150 in her bank, she takes the plunge...$10,000! But she next calls D for dud. Lacy then calls a $500 P, an $800 W...

Big Money Round: The hybrid car on offer this week is the Honda Civic. Cody spins the N in WIN and the category is Thing. Starting with:

_ _ L _

_ _ E S S

He calls C, D, H and O and gets...

_ _ L D

_ _ E S S

...he forgets the category, as he gives incorrect responses of BALD CHESS and GOLD CHESS. He doesn't make the correct WILD GUESS for the Honda.

Jeopardy!: Fred Beukema defends his title for the fourth time against:

John Pitzel (Lee's Summit, MO)- Accountant
Anne Reilly (Stowe, MA)- Stay-at-home mom

PERSONAL FOWLS
I'M LATIN INTOLERANT
THE END OF THE MARATHON (the race must be ID'ed in each correct response)

Early on, Beukema finds the Daily Double under the $600 Marathon clue with said amount; Pitzel leads with $800 while Reilly's $400 in the hole. The champ goes for $1,000 on this:

In Grant Park near Buckingham Fountain.

"What is the Chicago Marathon?"...he nearly triples his money to $1,600! He's at $2,800 by the time we reach the first break; the challengers now each have $600. At the end of the round...

Fred: $6,600
Anne: $3,400

DJ! Categories:

MILITARY ABBREV.
1980s MOVIE CHARACTERS
IF THEY'D TAUGHT AREOBICS INSTEAD (the teacher must be given in each correct response)
FIRST LADIES' RHYME TIME
FACE (all picture clues)
"THE" NATION

Beukema ends the first half of the round by finding the round's first DD under the $2,000 Aerobics clue with $9,400; he trails Pitzel for the lead by $1,200. Reilly has $3,800. His wager is the face value of the clue ($2,000). To take the lead back, but not by much:

All right, everybody got their workout clothes off? No pain, no gain here at my Indiana Univ. institute.

"Who is Bobby Knight?"...well, that's a lovely thought, but that's incorrect. It was Alfred Kinsey, so he's down to $7,400. Towards the end of the round, he's back in the lead at $11,400 as he finds all three of the night's DDs, with the last one being under the $1,200 "The" clue. Pitzel has $9,800 and Reilly has nine grand; this game hasn't been this tight all night. His final DD wager is $1,200 (again, face value of the clue).

In its native tongue, this nation is Al-Imarat Al-Arabiyah Al-Muttahidah.

"Who are the United Arab Emerates?"...is right to go to $12,600!

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $7,200
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $3,200
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $10,400

SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:

John: $9,800

CORYAT SCORES:

Fred: $14,200

FJ! CATEGORY (keep note of this people): Artists.

The 2 famous painters who share a March 30 birthday, one born in Spain in 1746, the other in Holland in 1853.

John Pitzel's response was "Who are Goya + Vemeer?"...Vemeer is incorrect. He loses nine grand as a result, dropping him to $800. Anne Reilly wrote down "Who are Goya and Van Gogh?"...she got 'em both to DOUBLE to $21,200! I'm not sure if the champ got this...







...and he didn't- he put down Rembrandt in place of Vemeer, so Reilly's the new champ and by losing $8,601, he's headed home with $71,401. Maybe we'll see him again.
