Re: TD 435 - Narrowing Nine (Q1-Q4 revealed)

we never learned Gilligan's first name, but according to a book by producer Sherwood Schwartz, he and Bob Denver agreed that if one were needed, it would be Willie.

Re: TD 435 - Narrowing Nine (Q1-Q2 revealed)

I did not intend for defunct or relocated teams to be used, but leaving out "current" meant a poorly pinned clue and led me to accept Expos. I am too lazy to list all of the other possible answers that I did not plan to accept and that nobody used. In that case I demand a Singleton because when I s...

I wonder if that's the first time "come out of the closet" has ever been said on the show? I knew disassociative was a word but I thought the neg was because they were going for the name of the condition which is dissociative. I forgot the category and said catharsis. Damn it!

I agree that that $400 bet on The Daily Double showed that the male contestant did not show up to play. He should take his consolation prize and get an Amtrak All-America pass. I was surprised at that Phyllis Diller bomb and also that the other two contestants didn't rebound. Notice that it got an "...

I got Luther's 95 Theses right away and then skipped forward wondering if it would be a triple stumper. It would have been awful if Alex had been the only one to get that right and then blew it because of her lousy wager. I don't get it. Both her opponents finished below her pre-FJ total, so there ...

One for cheezguyty: What is the percentage of shows with 3 women contestants?
Since April 28, 2004, 77 out of 2,844 regular episodes (2.7%) have had three female contestants. Here's the breakdown by season:

She's from Chicago, and 312 is the area code of Chicago. 1-(312) was meant to be a shoutout to her home city.

I suspect that contestant Alex is a ham radio operator, because her unusual bet of 1312, which host Alex even called unusual, left her with $88 after missing the extremely easy answer of Buenos Aires. 8 8 is the ham radio code for love and kisses, an especially affectionate way of signing off.

Why has nobody commented on Julie's wag on st. Thomas ruining the possibility of a win for her? Before that clue she was at 8400 and after Beth got that wrong she was at 16800. 1) Beth was never going to ring in from a lock position. 2) As mentioned above, of course Julie has to ring in.

Also, I think you wouldn't see penguins at the south pole. It's too far inland and too cold (even for penguins). they tend to live on the perimeter of Antarctica and even there they have to huddle together for warmth.
