Jason on DD3 had the dreaded “wortter” (or “lettord”?) error (not to be confused with the “lettable” for letters vs. syllables) that can afflict both viewers & contestants as he seemed to process DD3 as needing a 7-letter response when it was 7 words.

Jason Downer kind of lived up to his name as after that miss he asked Alex, “You want me to continue?”

The FJ! clue had nothing to give me hesitation from locking in the correct title from the get-go. That is terrific that all three players got it right and Catherine is some champ getting exactly 23201 for each victory.

I’ll leave “radiant” and “humble” for someone else to use in their comments.

Thank goodness Rebecca did not write Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm for her response as Maine works, but 1903 is almost 50 years off.

Now we know Nick’s opponent: viewtopic.php?p=273306#p273306

Good final question. My grandfather is from Maine (so I knew that Charlotte's Web's inspiration was in Maine), and my grandmother loved Charlotte's Web, so this was an instaget. 2/2

Briefly distracted by Maine but quickly switched to looking for a kids’ book set on a farm with emphasis on a barn and was home free.

For some reason, I thought that Charlotte's Web was set in Britain.

I'm getting too dumb to play along anymore. I have no idea where the Danube is.

1952 + farm = ... Um. Date seemed not far back enough for Charlotte's Web. Babe was a book but I'm pretty sure it was British. Uh... ... ... nah, I got nothing, this is gonna be another stumper, I know it...

The contestants handled what I thought was a hard board very well. All three had some good gets, and I felt bad for Jason after he uncovered 2 tough DDs in the DJ round. But I did think that the Singing in the Rain DD was grossly overvalued.

Instant get FJ. I guess that makes 2 kiddie lit FJs in the span of a week?

trash: Rhine, "Now is the winter of our discontent", Veep, Strauss.
FJ: Didn't we just have a children's lit clue last Friday?
Thought first of Babe, but figured that was too recent, remembered Charlotte's Web.

Wasn't Singing in the Rain negged once? Sounded like what she said. I'd check the Archive, but it keeps erroring on me.

The Archive shows the correct response with Singin' while more ears than 2 have heard "Singing" according to a quick spin around message boards.

That of course leads to Gangsta's/Gangster's brought up again.

Singing was accepted in this game: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=4126

My 7-year old daughter just solved her first-ever FJ! It's one of her favorite books and movies. I had to help her parse the clue by asking her what book takes place in a barn in Maine, and she solved it before the end of the music!

Black Beauty here. With the clue as written, I can't imagine me ever getting to Charlotte's Web.

Later addendums:
Shrek got a guffaw out of me (LL)
The World According to Garp got a full bellied laugh; I saw that movie for the first time Saturday.

I was distracted by Maine for a bit, and the only Maine-set thing for kids I could think of was Pete's Dragon, which isn't even a novel. But I kept racking my brain, and somehow pulled up the correct response for a farm-based children's classic novel from mid-century.

Just this morning, I was getting after my daughter to pick up some clutter in her room, including a copy of Charlotte's Web. She mentioned that she was lukewarm about it and thereby crushed my soul. Later on, we had a laugh when FJ came up.

I read Charlotte's Web back in the day, but I have no recollection of it taking place in Maine. My response was Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (which I never read); right church, wrong pew decade.

Worst error today was "This is the winter of our discontent". Oy.

I'm ashamed to post a possible explanation without replaying and looking up the exact clue, but IIRC, I was prepared for them just to take an answer of "Singing" based on the clue. I don't think it was pinned to the movie title proper and I might have answered just "singing" and take the chance for a BMS.

Now I can't remember the clue with the "Wow" in it, but when Catherine answered it, I said "Wow" spontaneously without realizing the humorous coincidence.

Some great YEKIOYD gets and a couple of silly TS's. Classical music - no guessing allowed.

I cycled through Animal Farm/ Charlotte's Web and decided the former was not a Children's book. Then pondered "Babe" but never knew it as a book and thought it must be more contemporary. I don't even know the Charlotte's Web story or characters, but locked it in as a popular FJ! topic. After a box of shame week, starting out with a double.
