PARTS OF SPEECH $800: Ahoy! Surrender your vessel or be boarded by Pirate Pete!: Ahoy
Caroline’s neg being reversed was one I saw coming, so she was sad (Aw!) then happy (Hurray!)

Rats! I’m down to 33% on the FJ! clues as I went for the one alphabetically first. Unlike yesterday I expect some company on my miss. Nice job by the gentlemen to make the clue go 66%.

I had plenty of time to run through the shuttle names and I should have done that as it’s possible I could have recalled the right one because of these previous clues:
SpoilerShow
#7411, aired 2016-11-28 WHERE IS IT? $200: The Challenger Deep: this ocean
#7008, aired 2015-02-18 OCEANOGRAPHY $2000: This deepest part of the Mariana Trench is named for the British survey ship that pinpointed the location in 1951
#6647, aired 2013-07-09 NEW INVENTIONS $2000: Able to withstand great pressure, the Deepsea Challenger submarine took this man down 7 miles in March 2012
#5809, aired 2009-12-10 U CAN'T TOUCH THIS $800: Touching the bottom of the Challenger Deep in this trench SW of Guam? Nuh uh--it's 35,840 feet below the surface
#4421, aired 2003-11-24 THE SEVEN "C"s $2000: 36,198' down in the Marianas Trench, the deepest point on Earth is named this "Deep" after the ship that located it
The wildcards are looking to go high with 21599, 19999, 12399 and 6600 with two games to go. Josie & Sheldon from Monday got the bad news at the earliest possible point.

I only knew this FJ because I remember a similar question coming up on WWTBAM a long time ago.

You do. I didn't have a way to tease it out so Atlantis=ocean location made more sense than anything else.

I didn't know it and I eventually teased out an incorrect response. Seems like that happened to a few of us.

I saw no way to figure out Mary Todd Lincoln, "beginning", Civil War, or Wonder Woman in the top boxes.

However, I ran the Music category.

Didn't even know what to guess on FJ! The clue wasn't making any sense to me.

Went with Columbia on the grounds that it sounded more like a place name than Challenger or Discovery or Enterprise. If I'd remembered there was an Atlantis, I'd have upgraded my wrong response. Simply didn't have the requisite knowledge to put this one together. It'll be interesting to see how this polls. I'd suspect low but two of the three contestants got it right.

As opposed to the sole solve on Monday for what struck me as an easy FJ.

The First Ladies clue mentioned "Union Army" camps and hospitals, so it was basically asking who was First Lady during the Civil War (a good thing to know). The Blue Book clue mentioned The Blue and the Gray, a well-known '80s miniseries set during the Civil War. As for Wonder Woman....er, go watch Wonder Woman. It's a good movie.

I knew FJ cold....at some point in the past. Totally forgot it since then, so I was stuck running through the list of space shuttles. Discovery, no...Endeavour, doesn't sound right...Challenger, right! Challenger Deep. If I had thought of Atlantis first, I probably would've stuck with it :/

"Blue and the Gray" could be any war for all I know. Seems like a very faint TOM.

The terms they used for Wonder Woman also seemed relatively obscure. I know of the invisible plane and Lasso of Truth, but not the things mentioned in the clue.

Blue and gray were the uniform colors of the Union and Confederacy, respectively. Just like the British were called redcoats in the American Revolution. So that's where that comes from.

and the streak of consecutive final jeopardy correct responses ends at 15...had never heard the name for the deepest part of the mariana trench...but since there was a space shuttle called atlantis and atlantis is associated with water, that was my guess

Yeah, but he asked you how many you (or any of us, really) could name. 98% of those are very obscure and no more than a few have flared up in pop culture recently.
