"Jeopardy!" 7/3

PLAYERS:
Leslie Page (Woonsocket, RI)- Public library director
Leo Velazquez (Orange, CA)- Theme park ride operator
CHAMP: Matt Samberg (whose two-day cash winnings total $44,601 & will get into Tournament of Champions contention w/ a win tonight)

First Category Menu:

WORDS WITH FRIENDS
FACE THE NATION (map clues)
LETTER-HEADS (each correct response will start w/ a letter & be followed by a word)
DOUBLE DOUBLE E
CLASSIC ALBUMS
ON THE TURNTABLE

At the break w/ $3,600, Matt's exactly $1 shy of moving into Lock Game Territory, because Leslie's at $1,800; Leo only has two bills to start. The $800 Words W/ Friends mean a Daily Double for Matt w/ $4,400. He has a $2K lead over Leslie & wagers $1,900 of it:

He said of his dad's influence when he ran for governor in 1994 "I've inherited 100% of his enemies & only 50% of his friends."


"Who is George W. Bush?"...he might've been inept while as President, but that Bush's the right political person to move into LGT w/ $6,300. Once time runs out before we can get to the $600 & $800 On the Turntable answers or the final Double Double E, Matt ups his $6,300 by a C-note, Leslie's only improved to $2,600 & Leo will have to start Double J! because he has a negative $400.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH:
$2,400
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,400
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $4,800

POETIC VERBS
THEY DIED WITH THEIR BOOZE ON
SEE "INSIDE" FOR DETAILS
ANGRY BIRDS
TRANSPORATION
THIS IS SPORTS SENATOR

Two clues into this round on They Died W/ Their Booze On, Leslie picks off one of the board's DDs & risks half her $3K on this piece of information:

He died in Babylon in 323 B.C., a few days after a long drinking bout & a few months after declaring himself a god.


"Who was Alexander the Great?"...she's back in the thick of it to the tune of $4.5K. Leo then gets "Inside" its $2K box at the right time, because he's got the final DD of the match w/ $2,400. But he's got a ways to go, because Matt's leading Leslie $11,300-$8,900. Leo settles for the face value regarding this:

Referring to Interstate 495, this three-word term describes isolated politicians.


"What is inside the beltway?"...exactly to nearly double to $4,400. The time's up signal sounds before the following are shown:
 
Poetic Verbs: $1,200-$2K

This is Sports Senator: $400 & $800

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

Banks After Two Rounds:

Matt: $12,100
Leo: $8,400
Leslie: $8,100

CORYAT SCORES:

Matt: $11K
Leo: $8,400

Leslie: $7,400

FINAL J! TOPIC:
1950s Movies.


"The Man on Lincoln's Nose" was a working title for this '59 film.

Leslie put "'What is 'North by Northwest'?"...given her occupation, she's unsurprisingly correct & instead of her suggested $301-$700 range, she wagered all but a Benjamin to stop at $16,100. Leo didn't look happy towards the end of the think music...because $7,401's NOT enough to put him in the lead, even though he also got it right. Did he just cost himself the title...NO- Matt's $16,801 richer, making his three-game winnings $61,402.


EPISODE RATING: 7
