Deborah had a very good rehearsal on the signaling device, so her victory didn't surprise me. Jane really shined in this game, just couldn't quite pull the Final.

After the Double Jeopardy round, Alex had made a comment in taping about "never doing this category ever again. At least not with these contestants," referring to Her Top 40 Bands. I believe that didn't make the final cut?

On the Martha clue I went with Martha And The Muffins.

$600 was the only movie in Adjectives that I'd heard of before.

WLT Spaniards at $200?

That Chinese Zodiac category was stupid.

Scherzinger = Pussycat Dolls and Martha Davis = Motels were double NHOIs for me.

Lach Trash: Boxster, rabbit, Paramore.

Geneva = Switzerland = okay, that's a red cross, but what does that have to do with an organization? I got nothing. Seriously, brain, stop freaking doing that.

"What is ®?" was my admittedly bad guess. Like I figured it had to be a symbol you'd be able to easily write down as a response (so I ruled out things like "what are three people with a roof over their head?"), but Red Cross just didn't come to me, and just wound up putting ® to have something. Kind of a shame, since it's a symbol that you actually could easily write as an answer.

My brain went to the olive branch/dove first before switching to the red cross about 10 seconds into the FJ music.

They must have been generous on the pronunciation of Ghirardelli because the contestant didn't pronounce the r in it. And I thought I was the one who had blown it by pronouncing the r.
I've seen the Ghirardelli logo a bunch before (from eating their chocolates and visiting SF/other locations with their brand name) and never once have I noticed the 'r' before the 'd.' Good to know.

Is there a way to watch this episode? My DVR did not record Jeopardy Thursday evening so I missed it.

What was the $1000 clue for Quechua? I don't think I've heard of that word.
Was that lagniappe? I apparently have seen it before, since I knew how to spell it, but I didn't know what it meant.
I don't think I would have ever come up with it--even though I know the word--simply because I presumed it was a French word due to it's association with New Orleans.

I remembered what the word looked like from inputting this game: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5333

I was not able to work out the pronunciation in time though.

It is a French word, just derived from Quechua

"American French, from American Spanish la ñapa the lagniappe, from la + ñapa, yapa, from Quechua yapa something added"

Thanks. That's it. It shows up as a response in the archive 2 times and is mentioned a 3rd time.

According to Wikipedia Mark Twain called it "a word worth traveling to New Orleans to get." I guess I saved myself a trip.
I was stationed in central Louisiana in the mid-80s. The first time I heard the word was when clerk tossed an extra cookie or something into the bag and said, "Here's some lagniappe." When she saw the blank look on my face, she said, "That's the Cajun version of a baker's dozen." Got the answer from the clue and that experience, but always thought it was derived straight from French. Never heard of the connection to Quechua.

That's the trouble with Jeopardy. You can know the answer, and STILL learn something new.....
I'm not a defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I think very few people would clearly pronounce the r, especially because the syllables are said rapidly. It's a natural elision, and the show is not an elocution contest.
