_ _ I N A T O _ N

…he solves CHINATOWN for the house minimum, and I don’t recall seeing a R6 on back-to-back episodes.

$100K Bonus Round
Denise needs to get the envelope from the * wedge.

Category: THINGS
I have a couple of ideas for this biggie…

_ _ S _ _
_ _ _ L _ _ _ _ _ T _ _ N S

PCMI gives her…

_ _ S I C

    once again, R6 playing episode, but yeah, LAT victim for 1/2 car and QU- victim for BR.

    ep.rating : 6

    next week, matt's $91K+ payoff from 2014 boxing day.(though didn't $32K payoff from BR, too bad isn't same day from next week)

    history repeats itself again from next week? I hope so.
