Alex: Thank you, Johnny. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. I must tell you that I was a little worried for Cindy at the beginning of the Double Jeopardy! round on yesterday's program. Not only was she in the red, but she trailed her two challenges by over $6,000. But she persevered. She kept coming up with the correct responses. She was right in Final Jeopardy!, picked up over $18,000, and today, is here to defend against Julia and Colleen. Ladies, good luck. Let's go to work.

Alex: Colleen Cooper is a writer from here in southern California who is an avid community gardener, but I want to know how you met your boyfriend.
Colleen: Um, well, we actually met at a wake for a cat.
Alex: They hold wakes for cats or dogs?
Colleen: Our friend Dan does, apparently. It was a very good cat.
Alex: And so you two met there and you've stayed together ever since.
Alex: Do you have a cat?
Colleen: I do. I actually have three.
Alex: Oh, three. They're fun, aren't they?
Alex: They're great.
Alex: Julia Kite, policy and research director from New York, who is a self-described "professional thorn" in the side of...
Julia: Anybody who's standing in the way of safer streets in New York City.
Alex: Which means--who are these people? What are they--
Julia: Um, well, what my organization I work for does is we advocate for better facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. And we're part of a program called Vision Zero, which is aiming to make sure that no more people have to die on the streets of New York. And it's a combination of engineering, enforcement, and education, so we campaign for things like redesigning streets that we know are dangerous.
Alex: How about banning cars?
Julia: Maybe someday.
Alex: I'm sorry I planted that in your mind.
Alex: Cindy Stowell is our champion. In grad school, you were part of a lab group obsessed, I hear, with food eating contests?
Alex: Now, was this kind of thing led by women or by men? Because I tend to think that that stuff is what guys do.
Cindy: Yeah, I kind of got roped along with it. It wasn't my idea.
Alex: Okay. Okay. Thank you very much.TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
