"Jeopardy!" 7/4

CONTESTI:
Jennifer Emmett (Freemont, CA)- Executive assistant
Ron King (Camarilla, CA)- Web designer
CHAMP: Matt Samberg (whose three-day cash winnings total $61,402)

How Many of These Have to Do W/ Today?:

ROYAL DYNASTIES
LONG RUNS IN PRIME TIME ($800's about "What's My Line?")
THE BEST OF DEAR ABBY
SEAPORTS
ANCHORS AWEIGH
"FUL" STEAM AHEAD

I guess just one, at least for this round. Ron's in Lock Game Territory at the first series of commercials w/ $3,600; he leads Matt by $2,600 & Jennifer by three grand. Jennifer chooses the Daily Double regarding the $800 Seaport w/ six clues to go in the round after this one. She has $1,200, half of Matt's second-place score; Ron's still sitting pretty at $6,200. She wagers 2/3 of her $1,200.

21 miles from Dover, this French seaport's closer to England than any other city in Mainland Europe.


"What is Calais?"...you pronounce it the same way as Colbie Cailliat's last name & Jennifer's correct for a $2K total, but that's cut in half immediately following an incorrect response on its $1K answer...& eventually drops back to $0 at round's end. Meanwhile, Ron now has a $4K lead.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS:
$1K Seaport
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $4,400
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $5,400

Offered in Double J!:

PEOPLE WITH BRADY KID NAMES
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARCHAEOLOGY
SPIRITUALS
ISN'T IT AN "-ISM"?

TITLE CHARACTERS
HALLEY'S CATEGORY

The $1,600 spot for Halley's Category sends a Video DD at Ron w/ $11,800. He's currently $1K in LGT, because Matt has $5,400 in his current bank & Jennifer's standing on $2,800. Ron risks $3K on the following from Kelly:

In 1677, Edmond Halley observed one of these rare astronomical events: the passage of a planet across The Sun's bright disc. In his case, it was Mercury.


 "What is an eclipse?"...also the name of Mitsubishi's veteran sports coupe, that's incorrect, so he's out of LGT for the time being & down to $8,800. Correct: What is a transit? But he can redeem himself w/ the other one in the middle of Title Characters; he has $10,400 & is only $200 behind the champ, while Jennifer's hanging in there at $3,600. To put another $2K in Ron's kitty & put him back in first place:

In a 17th Century French comedy, mankind hater Alceste.


"Who is...Pirandello?"...no, that was called a misanthrope. Left behind due to time are the $1,600 & $2K Spirituals, plus the last clue from People W/ Brady Kid Names. Incidentally, on the last played clue this round, Ron got penalized $1,200 because he failed to phrase his response of "When the Saints Go Marching In" properly (Spirituals); that's the second night in a row that's happened.

DJ! LACH TRASH (all unattempted):
$1,200

Heading into the Final:
Matt: $13,400
Ron: $7,200
Jennifer: $6,800

CORYAT SCORES:

Matt: $13,400
Ron: $12,200
Jennifer: $6,800

FJ! CATEGORY:
Nuclear Nations.


On May 18, 1974, this country tested its first nuclear device, nicknamed "Smiling Buddha".

Jennifer's gonna have to go big or fly back to where she came from. Her final query was "What is China?"...BUSTED. Ron instead thought "What is India?"...that's the correct country to end the night w/ $13,601. Matt agreed w/...Jenny, so he leaves w/ $63,402 & Ron's the victor.


EPISODE RATING: 6
