Second, D & L call up two FP E’s, two $900 T’s, two R’s for the gift tag, a $650 H, and four I’s, followed by a $900 G, a $500 N, a FP dud of A (the only bad vowel of this puzzle), and the BANKRUPT near $2,500 to forfeit $5,600 cash & GT. The Birds then dig up a $1,600 pair of D’s…

D & L lead off w/ a $500 T, two $800 R’s, an E, two $700 S’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to toss aside $3,250. Second, the Birds get into trouble w/ the one near TD. The Ramondettas make it three in a row w/ the MDW’s left side. As we start fresh again w/ the sisters, they uncover two $800 N’s, a $650 P, but the sole dud vowel of A fails them for the second round in a row.
