Steve Rotfeld Productions is one of the companies best known for filming these & Eric figures out they're SPORTS BLOOPERS for the doubler.

R4: TV Quote

He gets the $5K S at the end of the first of two lines (& second of four words) out of the gate (if this ends up being the last round of the game & he solves w/ exactly that much in his bank, we go to Sudden Death), and three E's & a $15K H trio later, we hear the Speed-Up Bell...

...& he can't come w/ anything else at the buzzer besides the second word. After seeing he only lost the $30K because of a stinky pair of KHAKI SHORTS, he departs w/ 33,550 bucks in his pockets.

TPiRecap

J!:

Kathy Wright (Seattle)- Bookseller
Eddie Nwabuoku (originally from NYC)- Web developer
CHAMPION: Aaron Cappocchi (whose two-day cash winnings total $56,101)

IMPORTANT NOTE: There was a discrepancy on last night's Final Jeopardy! clue, so even though it didn't affect the outcome of the game, Aaron was credited w/ a correct response & thus actually won $27,301 last night.

Tonight's Base Topics, For Real:
AMBROSE-IA
SHAKESPEARE'S WOMEN
20TH CENTURY FOX TV
GOING POSTAL
ABBREVIATIONS AFTER YOUR NAME
GRIME FIGHTERS

Behind the last Grime Fighter for Kathy is the Daily Double w/ her at $2,800; both guys have $1K apiece so far. She risks her $1,800 lead on this answer:

This household cleaner's website says it "...didn't get its name from the area code where it was developed".

"What is Formula 409?" is good for a new score of $4,600. She has made it to the $5K level at the break & leads Aaron by three G's & Eddie by four.

LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $2,800

Scores After J! Round:
Aaron: $4,400

Eddie: $2,200
Kathy: $9K (she's still barely in Lock Game Territory)

New Dozen Subjects:
DRINKS
APPS
THE MAINE COURSE
"SIDE" DISHES
MIXED GREENS
WHAT'S FOR DESERT? (this is a kinda-themed restaurant menu board)

Aaron chomps up a DD in the center of the "Side" Dishes w/ $8,400 & he's within reach of Kathy's $16,200; Eddie's $14K behind her at this time. The champ makes a $6K gamble:

This comic strip's Genesis was in a series of animal cartoons called "Nature's Way", first published in 1979.

"What is 'The Far Side'?"...he's not on it now in a good way, because he's zoomed to $14,400! W/ only What's For Desert? & about a minute left on the timer, Kathy goes DD Hunting starting in the middle...but Aaron's $1,600 pick right after that gives him that opportunity! He has $20,400 in his Tues. bank & is only $600 off her lead; Eddie only has the six bills. Aaron goes for...just $1,200 more & a slight lead on this:

The name of this desert in the south of Israel is Hebrew for "south".

Good thing he risked little, since he can't think of the Negev.  Time runs out before we can see either the $400 or $800 clue there.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $800 (Mixed Greens)
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $8K
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $8,800

Heading into the Final:
Aaron: $19,200

Eddie: $600- MATHEMATICALLY ELIMINATED
Kathy: $21K

CORYAT SCORES:
Aaron: $15,600
Eddie: $600
Kathy: $20,200


FJ! CATEGORY: Authors.

His multi-novel series is based on Robert Browning's poem Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Game.

EDDIE:
Response: "Who is JRR Tolkein?"
BUST

At least Aaron Cappocchi has "Who is Stephen King?", which is absolutely right to add just $1,999 for a final total of $21,199...but he's going home w/ $58,101 while Kathy's also "Wright" to win $38,398!
