I 100% agree on the BMS for "Hepburn" and "clerk" - I let out an audible gasp each time. Alex said "Katharine Hepburn" fluidly, as if it couldn't be anyone else. Perhaps they fixed it in post to remove the ambiguity for home viewers? If they're gonna accept that, they have to accept my response of "Bronte" to the "Name the third Bronte sister" clue. Oddly enough, out loud I said clerk for "clerk to the SCOTUS", but I'm 100% I would have been able to BMS myself to the right response anyway. I might have gone "clerk", "court clerk", "Supreme Court clerk" - do they let you BMS twice?
Hepburn should have, but I disagree on clerk since you were spotted 'Justice' in the clue. If you clerk for a justice in the US, you're a SCOTUS clerk (or too obscure to be asked about on J! "Ooh, sorry, she was the first Justice of the Peace court clerk.")
I’ll buy that. Plus the category was U.S. Government, so that narrowed it considerably.

I believe the only time I've seen "phial" was in the Lord of the Rings (phial of Galadriel).

In context, I thought "Bronte" would not have been enough, "clerk" was enough, and "Hepburn" should have been BMSed.

I knew exactly what FJ! was going for, but my brain wouldn't produce it. "Frederick the Great of..."

"Phial" seems to the British spelling. I remember it being used in several Sherlock Holmes tales, and there's a Lord Darcy short story where it's part of the title in "The Ipswitch Phial" (even though author Randall Garrett is American).
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I sat in the gallery for an evening of the impeachment trial, so I certainly wasn't going to miss the 'managers' question.
