VTR: Sept. 25 (taped before last week’s shows)

$1K Tossup: SONG TITLE

_ _ / Y _ _ / _ E _ R
_ _ _ _ / _ / _ _ _ R ?

Amy solves “DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR?” by the Harry Simeone choir. Tonight’s contesti from left to right…

Amy Lustig: loan officer for a large mortgage co. who also bowls from Santa Clarita, CA

Round 1: QUOTATION

She leads off w/ three S’s for $1,800, eight E’s, three T’s for another $1,800, triple H’s for $2,100, but then the first dud of the week in O (and it’s the only bad vowel of the puzzle). Second, Kyndall calls up three R’s for $1,800, buys three I’s, but then BANKRUPTs near $650 to lose the $1,550 remainder. Third, Henry finds four N’s for $2K, four L’s for $2,600 more, and a $600 C before the same BANKRUPT strikes him to the tune of $5,200…

T H E / C H I L _ R E N
_ E R E / N E S T L E _
_ L L / S N _ _ / I N
T H E I R / _ E _ S

…and Amy correctly recites “THE CHILDREN WERE NESTLED ALL SNUG IN THEIR BEDS” (from “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”) for that same amount Henry just lost.

SOLE DUD: O (Amy)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (opposition)

Amy: $8,200/Others: $0 each

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Kyndall gets to work and locates a $550 T, two L’s for $1,300, five E’s, a single O, and two R’s for the DICK’S gift tag before calling two S’s while on the MW near LaT. She risks $3,350 cash & GT…ZERO. Over to Henry who puts up a $900 G, two $600 N’s, a $500 V, and the remaining vowels that isn’t U. Following a $600 H and a K for the 1/2 CAR near the pink $600…

    I have only one word to describe that crash by Henry – DANG. Well, I wasn't so surprised – he just didn't seem sure.

    Anyway, good job by him and Amy.

    My rating: 7
