Jeopardy! recap for Fri. Sept. 28 – Today’s contestants are:
– Barbara, an executive assistant from Georgia, is part of the “Giant Squids” trivia team;
– Andrew, an environmental lawyer from Washington, D.C., hit the road on his bike after the bar exam; and
– Evelyn, a family physician from Ontario, will be getting Johnny’s autograph on one of his old records. Evelyn is a two-day champ with winnings of $52,402.
Andrew shook off some early incorrect guesses to take the lead on DD1 and held the advantage into FJ with $12,800 vs. $9,800 for Barbara and $4.600 for Evelyn.
DD1 – 20TH CENTURY DECADES – Prince Charles weds Diana (Andrew won $1,800 on a true DD.)
DD2 – GO FOR THE GOLD – The last time Olympic gold medals were made of solid gold was in 1912 at the games in this Scandinavian city (Andrew lost $2,000)
DD3 – MY WIFE – Pompeia, who married him in 67 B.C. & must be above suspicion (Evelyn lost $2,000 – this was the last clue of DJ with Evelyn at $6,600 vs. $12,800 for Andrew and $9,800 for Barbara. Unless she hated the category, this was a clear situation to wager for the lead.)
FJ – CLASSIC FILMS – In this ’70s Oscar-winning film, the title character’s 1st words are “Why did you go to the police? Why didn’t you come to me first?”
As if the FJ clue wasn’t easy enough, Alex’s impression was a dead giveaway, so everyone was correct. Andrew added $6,801 to win with $19.601.
No harm no foul: Everyone took an incorrect guess on the state capital described as “another day in paradise, 82 degrees and sunny”, Honolulu. Somehow, I don’t think the responses of Sacramento and Tallahassee fit the general description of “paradise”.
DD1 – What is the 80s?
DD2 – What is Stockholm?
DD3 – Who was Julius Caesar?
FJ – What is “The Godfather”?
