Alex: Libby Nelson is a journalist from Missouri, and each year, when she was younger, my daughter used to go out and sell Girl Scout cookies, and I still buy them. Not from her, though. But you have a connection there that I didn't know about.
Libby: Y--my picture is on the shortbread cookie box. Um, it was--
Alex: I love shortbread cookies!
Libby: It was taken when I was 12, um, and it's still on there, and I actually used to be on the lemon pastry cremes, but they cropped me out when they redesigned it a couple of years ago.
Alex: Okay. Do you get a royalty? Because I know they sell a lot of those cookies each year.
Libby: I wish.
Alex: Yeah. All right.
Alex: Sergio Llorian from New York. A lot of people get calls to be on Jeopardy!
when they're at the office or at home, but you were in a rather unique situation when you got our call.
Sergio: Yeah, I actually missed the call because I was plummeting to the earth. I had decided to go, uh, skydiving that day, and soon as I landed, I checked my messages and... there was the call.
Alex: So you were skydiving in Hawaii...
Sergio: Yep. I was skydiving in Hawaii, and, uh, the call came in while I was... midair.
Alex: Do any of the skydiving trips in Hawaii take place over water, where you will land in water, or are they all set up so that you're gonna land on land?
Sergio: I-I mean, I can only speak to the one I did, and I landed on land.
Alex: Okay. It's a good place to land.
Alex: Matt--Matt Douma, our champion, has a Big Ten championship ring, and yet, two days ago, he intimated that he wasn't a very good football player, so how did you get a Big Ten championship ring?
Matt: Well, I'm not, uh, maybe the greatest player, but when I was an undergrad at the University of Michigan, I was a student athletic trainer for the football team for a season. We won the Big Ten and went to the Rose Bowl.
Alex: Still have the ring, huh?
Matt: I do.
Alex: Makes you feel proud. All right.
Matt: It does.
Alex: And you should feel proud of the way you've performed on our show as champ, and you're in command right now, so go again.JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
