J!: First in the Teachers Tournament semis: Lisa, Kathryn & Justin. Light 'em up, Kevin:

SCHOOL OF ROCK (all picture clues)

Justin's in Lock Game Territory just like that w/ $6K at the first timeout, which is five times Kathryn's early score; Lisa's $800 in the hole, though. Or Go Home's the last remaining topic, where the Daily Double's buried it appears, it's hidden behind the $1K answer for Lisa's potential benefit w/ $3,800; Kathryn's at $2K & Justin's still comfortably in front w/ $7,400. Lisa makes a wager of $1,800. Springwood Estate in this NY town (also named for a film production company), if you're our 32nd President (or his ghost).

"Who is FDR?" is definitely wrong; it's Hyde Park.

LACH TRASH (all attempted): $1,400 (the $600 TS under Or Go Home was a correct response reversal)

On Tap for Double J!:

TV SPIN-OFFS ("project ACCESSORY" is the subject of its first clue!)
THIS IS...A "JEOPARDY!" CATEGORY (Johnny announces the title & the quote for each clue, starting w/ "This is..."!)

Kathryn finds a DD two clues in under the $800 Black History answer & wagers her whole $2,400 on this:

A vessel called this historic ship "...of Liberia" left the U.S. in Feb. 1820 carrying free blacks back to Africa.

"Who is Amistad?"...sorry, it was The Mayflower. W/ only the $2K U.S. Place Names clue left after this, Lisa picks off the other DD of this round of play behind its $1,200 clue w/ $8K; Justin's all but in the finals w/ $18,200 & Kathryn's a goner w/ $400. Lisa makes a respectable $3K gamble, so this is to keep her in this game:

The name of this suburb of Washington, D.C. (& a former computer software company) is from the Hebrew for "house of grace".

"What is Bethesda?" right to keep this game interesting w/ her 11 grand!



Justin: $18,200
Kathryn: $2,800
Lisa: $11K
