Game Recap for Show #7380, 2016-10-14

CONTESTANTS
Jerry Castro, a retired police captain from College Point, New York
Keely Walker, a manager of scientific writing from Glendora, California
Susan Cole, a legislative librarian from Bowie, Maryland (whose 2-day cash winnings total $39,000)

OPENING REMARKS
Alex: Hey, Johnny. And thank you, ladies and gentlemen. I think about a week ago, a little over a week ago, we said good-bye to a 12-time champion, a very talented young man named Seth Wilson. Since then, we've had difficulty getting repeat champions. Players will win one, maybe two games--as is the case with our returning champion today, Susan--but so far, nobody's been able to win more than two. Let's see if Susan can turn that around today at the expense of Keely and Jerry. Good luck. Here we go. And now we find out what the categories are...

SCORES AT THE FIRST BREAK
Susan: $2,200
Keely: $1,600
Jerry: -$800

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Jerry Castro is a retired police captain from New York, but not the regular police force, the transit police force.

Jerry: That's right.

Alex: Do you recall a contestant on our show, a great champion named Frank Spangenberg?

Jerry: I sure do. He was in the Transit P.D.

Alex: Yeah, he brought a lot of glory to you guys.

Jerry: Yes.

Alex: Now, how many years did you serve?

Jerry: Well, I did 30 years or 30 and a half years, and then the department was merged into the NYPD in April 1, 1995.

Alex: One of the great films about 30 years ago was The Taking of Pelham 123, which was all about the transit police.

Jerry: Yes.

Alex: Yeah, wonderful movie.




Alex: Keely Walker from Glendora, California. A manager of scientific writing. What does that mean?

Keely: So, I work at a comprehensive cancer center in the local area, and I help our scientific--um, our scientists to write grant proposals to a variety of funding agencies to help cure cancer.

Alex: Good. Good having you with us today.




Alex: Susan Cole, a legislative librarian. She's our champion. And you were once very knowledgeable about antique plaster.

Susan: Yes.

Alex: Did you study abroad at some archeological sites? What would--

Susan: Oh, that would be fun. No, the job--at my last job, I was a librarian for a historically informed performing arts center, and so they were doing research into the acoustic qualities of historic plaster versus modern plaster. So, I got to do a lot of research into how it was made and lime and, um--

Alex: Was the old plaster acoustically preferable to the new plaster?

Susan: Yes, if I remember correctly, um, it has a better bounce for the sound and modern gypsum plaster tends to absorb it. I'm sure there are people yelling at their TVs right now because I've gotten it wrong.

[Laughter]

Susan: But I think that's what it was.

Alex: Okay. No, hey, we're learning something new on Jeopardy! every day.

Susan: Maybe there'll be a clue.

Alex: Absolutely, yes!

(Alex: There's one more clue. We didn't close it out. Do you want to go back to it?)

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
19th CENTURY LITERATURE

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Four-fifths for first place. Shore's Conjecture.
Susan: Wager $14,201 to cover Keely. If you feel like using Shoretegy, try wagering $11,401.
Keely: Your score is within 4/5ths of Susan's, so wager between $401 (venusian) and $11,599 (martian), beating Susan's maximum safe bet of the difference between your scores while still covering against a doubled score on Jerry's part.
Jerry: There's no way you can cover a rational wager by Keely, but if Keely decides for some reason to wager everything, you can eke out a win on a Triple Stumper if you wager no more than $1,000.

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
This character says, "Let me then tow to pieces, while still chasing thee, though tied to thee"

FINAL SCORES
Jerry: $1,400 - $1,400 = $0 (Who was Melville) (3rd place)
Keely: $14,400 - $5,000 = $9,400 (Who is Mr Frankenstein?) (2nd place)
Susan: $14,600 + $14,200 = $28,800 (Who is Captain Ahab?) (39001-day champion: $28,800)
(Alex: "For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee.")

Dang it..would have loved to see Jerry do better. Too bad he never got a hang of the buzzer. Would have thought the program breaks might have helped him with training etc., but didn't seem like it.

So strange that FJ music seems to take forever if you know the answer and contrarily seems to go too fast when you don't know the answer.

Keely: OK - I see Susan offer a tie yesterday, she might offer today too. Therefore, I will not try an all-in bet.
Didn't matter in the end.

I was with contestants on that Harry-Potter in J and Singer in DJ ....they were tough.

Not sure at all why Susan keeps offering a tie. Surely she knows they aren't a thing any more, yes?

No guess for FJ.

I ran the Harry Potter category (well, minus the $200 clue, which for all we know may have been super tough), but I suppose it was a very "you either know it or you don't" category. I was surprised the contestant kept going back to that category, though.

Why on earth did she keep going back to that Harry Potter category. 3/4 here, no idea who Filch is anymore.

To the last, I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart, I stab at thee; for hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee. Super-instaget.

Once again the champ offers a tie, but no all-in wager to go with it (not that it would've mattered). It's like she knows we want to see a tiebreaker, and she's teasing us :lol:

Alex's time machine was off as The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974) was way more than 30 years ago. He's right about it being a good movie, though. The Denzel/Travolta remake? Not so much.

Susan was appropriately dressed for today's FJ! clue.
SpoilerShow
Image
I solved the clue in between instaget and five seconds and from there I made sure it was the character that was wanted. No difference for Jerry giving the author instead as it seemed quite obvious early on that he was going to be leaving with $1000.

Keely trailed narrowly even though she played all the DDs and hit two of them correctly. Missing the FJ! clue makes it easier to come in second with no regrets. It looked like the portion of her FJ! response that Keely crossed out was "Me", but it's hard to be certain as perhaps it could have been an "Mc?" Or perhaps "Ma" and she almost joined Jerry in guessing an author?

Nice close to the week for Susan to earn the honor of playing on another taping day.

Ran Coins, all but idiosyncracy in Double Y'ed.

Was there an LTaM? We just seemed to abruptly run out of time in both rounds.

I got all but Argus Filch in the Harry Potter clues.

"Opposite of urban" at $1,200 was way too easy.

Ran 6 Syllable.

Lach Trash: 49th Parallel.

I was so hung up on "tow to pieces" and "tied to thee" to even hazard a guess. Even when Alex said that "Melville" was on the right track, that still didn't prime the pump for me.

$24200 Coryat

WAG Heathcliff for FJ!, never read Moby Dick. Should.

NHO Nile Rogers

LT: Sirius Black, Malfoy, Filch (couldn't see SEVERUS SNAPE for the life of me), Environmental protection, 49th Parallel

Had "pickle" instead of "asparagus" on the basis of pickle spears. Considered asparagus afterwards, but alas.

WAG Vidalia on the Hawaiian onion variety.

This is Keely checking in.

For some reason the Harry Potter category was surprisingly tough for us. I kept going back to it because I'm big Harry Potter fan and kept thinking the next one would be obvious, but my brain just wasn't unscrambling those letters.

Re: Final Jeopardy - that was the start of "Mr." I got fixated on European lit and couldn't shift my thinking.

I had a great time, but can no longer listen to "Fortunate Son" on the radio.

When the clue first popped up, I first thought "that sounds a lot like Khan at the end of Star Trek II... vengeance + tow + chase... yeah, that's it." Makes me a bit more frustrated that I lost a 5/5 week on a gettable Monday clue.

For Hate's Sake I spit my last breath at Thee! KHANNNNNNNNNN! LOL Instaget. HEY; L@@K: GALLEON... again! Precalled!! :P

Tough boards. 37R. LT: Severus Snape, Sirius Black, John Fogerty (CCR) "I ain't no Fortunate Son... It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son!"; 49th Parallel.

Precalling TPH: "WLT to Hamlet from Uncle?!" > Uncle Claudius. Killed his bro (Hamlet Sr) and shacked up with Ham Jr's Mom, his sister-in-law, Gertrude. Like Greek tragedy, only Danish. :o

I hadn't noticed/remembered she offered tie in the previous game. I think I just missed it in everything that was happening in between games. It's a lot easier to play at home than on stage!

Welcome and thank you for the clarification on your FJ! clue response. I have changed it in the summary post above.

This was the first question in Ken Jennings's Tuesday Trivia set from Sept. 27:

1. What rock frontman published his memoir, Fortunate Son, last fall?

I felt bad hearing Keely give the answer of 'Seger' for Fortunate Son. I had just made the exact same mistake on the earlier clue about Natural Woman. Although I knew that the song was written by Carole King, I figured it was more associated with Aretha Franklin.

And, although I am a huge fan of John Fogerty and Creedence, I first heard Fortunate Son by Bob Seger.

Welcome Keely. Stick around. I think you'll like it here.

Oh, and I also guessed Frankenstein's monster for FJ killing my chance at my first 5/5 in a long long time. Once Alex said that "Melville [was] close", I zeroed in and shouted "Ahab!"

Brian
...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

John Fogerty was a piece of cake for me, but that was my only get in that category. I jumped the gun with Aretha Franklin on the Carole King clue.
I felt the bottom clue was way too obscure for regular Jeopardy! Recognized the song titles refeference and knew the artist but no way I'm coming up with the singer or song writer.

My theory on that is she wants to be the first to participate in a tie-breaker since the rule change. She probably figures having the notoriety on her resume is worth the risk of losing a game she would have otherwise won. I look for her to go all in if she finishes a future DJ in a close second.

I knew that it was "the lead singer of Creedence Clearwater Revival", but I just had a mental block and couldn't access the name. Same thing with the other DD. I knew "Oh, not Macbeth, the other one that kind of has a similar name".
