EPISODE #6065: SHOPPING SPREE

$1K Tossup: PHRASE

_ _ _ H / _ R
_ _ E D _ T ?

Wendy rightly asks “CASH OR CREDIT?”. These three are here to end the wk. on a good note…

Wendy Romagnoli: Girl Scouts leader and a Fanilow (Barry Manilow, of course) from Oceanside, CA
Erik Bryant: preschool karate instructor from L.A. (orig. from Nashville)
Ashley Phalin: hygienist from Woodbridge, VA

$2K Tossup: AROUND THE HOUSE

_ _ A M _ _ G N E
_ _ _ _ S _ _

Ashley is not sure w/ her guess of CHAMPAGNE GLASSES, but that’s correct.

FEATURED SS: Cooking.com

Round 1: THINGS

Her opening letters are a $900 S, a TD R, a $900 N, and two A’s before she BANKRUPTS next to TD to lose $4,050. Second, Wendy calls up two L’s for $1,300, a $900 D, a $650 Y, and an O, followed by a $900 W, but then the sole dud vowel of I. Third, Erik grabs the WC w/ a T, buys the last vowel of U, lights up a $600 H and gets the Zappos gift tag w/ a J. But after a $600 C is the other normal BANKRUPT to take away $2,950 cash & GT plus his WC. After Ashley’s $700 M and a LaT landing…

C L O T H E S
J E W E L R Y
A N D / M A _ E U _

…Wendy can buy some CLOTHES, JEWELRY AND MAKEUP w/ another $3,250.

SOLE DUD: I (Wendy)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (everybody else)

Erik: $0/Ashley: $2K/Wendy: $4,250

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Wendy first FPs a dud vowel of E and loses her turn w/ the T. Second, Erik puts up a $900 R, and buys the twin A’s, I, and double O’s to clean out the vowels. Following a $1K pair of L’s, he can’t pick up the 1/2 CAR near the pink $900 w/ C. Ashley next picks off a $500 F, a $900 D, a TD W, and double Z’s for $1,800 more…

…there isn’t a book titled “PINBALL WIZARD OF OZ”, but she scores another $6,700.

DUDS: E (Wendy), T (Wendy), C (Erik)

Erik: NOTHING/Ashley: $8,700/Wendy: $4,250

PP/Express Round: EVENT

Trying to make a comeback, Erik leads off w/ a $900 R, four E’s and an I, a $500 H, two T’s for that MDW, and four A’s, then come three N’s for the same 1/2 CAR, the other two vowel singles, two S’s for $1,300, a $700 V, and two $650 C’s (he just missed on getting the other 1/2 CAR)…

…he just won his first $4,950 and THE PERFECT SUN-AND-SEA VACATION from hotwire to the Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort in ARUBA.

Ashley makes it to the M of AMERICA’S.

Category: PHRASE
Decent head start…

_ _ E T _ _
_ _ S T _ _ E

CMPU should do it (and make Kara from Monday’s show unhappy)…

P _ E T _ C
_ U S T _ C E

and we have a 4-1 wk.! I sure hope this win is an example of POETIC JUSTICE if the $100K is in her envelope…

not at all — that damned $32K has appeared all wk. long, so she has to settle for an all-cash total of $43,700.
