Alex: Allison Totura is a research microbiologist. Now, there was a movie called Outbreak
many years ago, and that influenced you in your career choice, right?
Allison: Oh, yeah, absolutely. So they showed it to us in health class. I would say maybe about 8th grade. I questioned the educational nature of Outbreak
in health class, but I kinda saw these guys working on viruses in the suits, and I thought, "Well, that seems like an interesting career option," and that's what I do now.
Alex: All right.
Alex: Hobie Barnes, the hills are alive with the sound of you, because you get involved in a Sound of Music
--what is it, a sing-a-long?
Hobie: The sing-a-long to the Hollywood Bowl, Alex.
Alex: Really? Every year?
Hobie: For the last five years, yes. 'Cause I was living in New York, but we moved back just to come basically for that.
Alex: Now are you a member of the audience, or are you performing onstage?
Hobie: The audience, but we're singing all in the audience together, and it's kind of almost a magical experience with, you know, there are certain moments where "Edelweiss" and everybody gets out their cellphone and the glow and white light is pretty neat.
Alex: Okay, good.
Alex: Justin Bender is our champion, ladies and gentlemen. He collects bobbleheads, but not just ordinary bobbleheads--bad bobbleheads.
Alex: What's the difference?
Justin: So bobbleheads sort of exploded over the last, you know, 10, 15 years, and in a rush to get 'em all out, there are a lot that just don't look anything like the person they're supposed to represent, or other ones for players who are just gonna be gone in two weeks.
Justin: So those are the sort of bobbleheads I'm interested in.
Alex: Those are the bad ones that will become collector items down the road.
Justin: I'm not necessarily interested in that.
Justin: But we'll see. We'll see.
Alex: You never know. All right.JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
