Kristin's still in first place w/ $11,200 when she turns over a DD on the $1,600 1200s spot; she leads Dave by $2,200 & Jason by three grand. That lady risks her lead on this in the hopes that she'll go up to $16K:

"Who are the Hapsburgs?"...were right! W/ three clues left in Movies: The Line of the End ($800, $1,600 & $2K)...it's Dave who chooses the DD in the $1,600 box w/ $13,600 & trails Kristin for the lead by $4,200; Jason's a solid third at $9,800. Dave goes for $4K more now:
"I hope to see my friend & shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope."
"What is 'The Shawshank Redemption'?"...as you could tell by that smile, he's closed within $200 of the lead w/ $17,800!
