J!:

Marnie Cox (Astoria, NY)- Attorney
Mike Lally (Ada, MI)- Food safety inspector
CHAMPION: Joel Pool (whose one-day cash winnings total $16,700)

One of tonight's first six categories is named after a Memorial Day weekend tradition:
THE INDIANAPOLIS 500
INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
WRITER'S DICTIONARY
IN PERE-LACHAISE CEMETERY
GIVE ME A PRIZE!
"IFY" ANSWER CORRECTLY

Mike's in the early lead w/ $2,800 & leads Joel by Marnie's third-place score of $1K. There's just enough time for the $1K In Pere-Lachaise Cemetery clue holding the Daily Double to be played by Marnie w/ $3,600; she's $1,200 over Mike for second & is $1,800 off the lead. She settles for making this a $600 answer:

This novelist's Magnum Opus is literally translated "In Search of Lost Time".

"Who is (Marcel) Proust?"...correct for a final total in this J! Round of $4,200.
  
SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $400 (Writer's Dictionary)
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,800
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $3,200

On Tap in Double J!:
THE COMMONWEALTH OF NATIONS
FROM THE SANSKRIT
YOUR DAY IN "C"OURT
NATIVE AMERICANS BY TRIBE
BEFORE & AFTER GOES TO THE MOVIES
EYE Q (in honor of Healthy Vision Month)

In the center of Before & After Goes to the Movies is Marnie's second DD opportunity of the game w/ $8,200; Mike's down to $1,600 & Joel has a $900 lead over Marnie. Here's her clue for another two thou & the lead:

Mia Farrow taking a pregnant pause in a horror pic segues into Tina Fey's ticking biological clock in a '08 comedy.

"What is 'Rosemary's Baby Mama'?"...exactly to send her to first (at least for now) at $10,200; however, she replies incorrectly on its next clue worth $1,600. Mike selects the other one of the round behind the middle Native Americans By Tribe answer w/ $2,400; he's just hanging in there, as Joel barely leads Marnie, $16,600-$15,800. Mike makes this worth a grand:

Osceola

"What is a Cree?"...NOT ACCEPTABLE for Seminole or Creek & that concludes the round, so its last two clues go unshown.

DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $3,600

Banks After DJ!:
Joel: $16,600
Mike: $1,400
Marnie: $15,800

CORYAT SCORES:

Marnie: $15,400

FJ! SUBJECT: 1957.

On Sept. 5, Dwight Einsenhower told this state's governor that "The federal constitution will be upheld by me by every legal means".

Mike Lally had "What is Arkansas?"...$799 added to his score. Marnie Cox...loses $13K w/ MS & she drops to $2,800; she wagered for a possible tie should Mike have successfully gone for it all & everyone else on this panel missed it. Well...Joel Pool's right anyway to remain champion w/ a $31,700 victory! Two-night total: $48,400.
