$4,400 + DD3/FJ.

Surprised he missed the DD, I wasn't sure myself but if in doubt, Stein seemed the obvious guess.

No chance from the fourth podium for me. A pathetic $4600 in positive trash, brought down to $3800 by deducting my miss with "original manuscript". You'd think a flightless bird would be up on his oxymorons. Alex Switzky saved me from an even lower 4th podium score by making two wrong guesses before I could--Indy 500 and appendix.

At least I got Madeline, unlike the contestants. And unlike Alex Trebek, I pronounced the name correctly.
Spoiler
Rhymes with "shine" in the Bemelmans book. I also know that Madeline isn't an orphan and Miss Clavel isn't a nun.

$9800-$1200 for saying Matilda instead of Madeline.

So, $8600 plus DD3 plus FJ.

Measly $3200.

Took the first clue for me to grok the tree gimmick, otherwise probably would have had maple if it came later.
Outlander would have been a DD get.

I clammed on correct responses for As You Like It, bank, and maple, and didn't know Petty or Outlander. Alex S. took my incorrect responses of Indianapolis 500 and draft, and I was able to rebound with the correct response on the former. I initially said "Shahrir Square" but corrected myself to Tahrir before Alex T. said it, so I'm going to count it even though on stage it would have been one of those situations where I immediately realized my mistake after being ruled wrong. I have $11,800 with that, $7,800 without it. Either way, since the DD came after the thymus TS that I got, I hereby lay claim to it, assume I bet to take the lead from Kevin, and win by getting it and FJ right.
