Reese’s story was about being a bourbon enthusiast including having tried Pappy Van Winkle’s while none of the players got the French royal house clue.

If Christine sang any more of her SHOWS BOATS $1000 response that probably would have cost the show money and she might have had to redo her response.

The FJ! clue had me go right to the correct author and from there the correct response. My pen was down and I was done although during think time I considered OMAM with George & Lennie could not fit.

Kyle was the only player with 2/2 on big clues to complete a very nice fourth victory. He’s the top 4x champ and can pass Rachel Lindgren & Gilbert Collins with a win tomorrow to go from 8th on the tracker up to 6th.

Compan"ee"s gave me my first 5/5 of the season. Woo!

NHO "salad spinner" or "hippy dippy".

I wonder if they would have accepted "Allison Moorer" on the Kid Rock/"Picture" clue?

3/5 in my wheelhouse of animals. Whiffed with cavy for pika and otter for sea cow.

I knew it was a Steinbeck novel. After a few misfires, I managed to get the right title just before the key change.

I can't see any reason why not. Maybe a reversal if it wasn't on the card. (I said Moorer and counted it right, at any rate.)

What I think of when I hear "hippy-dippy":
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.

I considered Of Mice and Men, realized it didn't work, and ended up going with Absalom, Absalom!
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

That is a really good guess. Absalom did kill his (half-)brother. Well, he sent hired goons to do it, but that wouldn't make the clue not apply.

Unless someone comes up with something better, I'm naming this the best possible wrong guess for this clue.

Totally lost for an answer, I said, "Exodus." I knew it was probably wrong, but it was an answer for the sake of an answer.

A pika, when reached for comment on their mention as a clue, replied, "EEEEEP!"

DD2, you're getting your ass kicked, lucky enough to find a middle row DD, and you meekly wager $1k? Less than the value of the clue? Frustrating to watch.

DD3, you're getting your ass kicked, really lucky to find a 2nd row DD, and you wager it all to give yourself a chance! Nicely done!

In the end, the sole FJ solve made it all moot.

I only came up with Jude the Obscure because a comedian has a podcast where he reads the book in its entirety while going on tangents.

34 right.

Lettuce Begin (2), A Bit O' Brit Lit (4), Show Boats (3), Compan"ee"s (2), Regional Vocabulary (2), State Songs (3)
Specific General History (4), Mammals (2), Rhyming Terms Starting With "H" (2), Stripes on the Flag (4), Just for Reference (3), Reinstate Songs (3)

Lach Trash: dust storm, George Patton, House of Bourbon, The Supremes; Daily Double: John "Black Jack" Pershing

I didn't know any of the plot of East of Eden; it was just the first Biblical sounding book from that time that I could think of.

My familiarity with the James Dean movie led me to the correct FJ response.

25,800 coryat.

Biblical fratricide + 1950s novel = East of Eden. Instaget.

Whenever I see a mention of Steller's Sea Cow, my mind always goes here:
I would prefer not to.

I have never read East of Eden and know nothing of its plot. I've never read Absalom, Absalom either, but it's the first (and only) thing I thought of so I went with that.
Teems with quiet fun.
