Molly locates PARIS, FRANCE for the tripler.
Round 1: HEADLINE
Her first moves are a $550 R, three E’s, but then the LaT. Second, Kyle calls up a $700 H, a T for the $10K Slots wedge, A, and two I’s, after which come a $500 D, two O’s to clean out the vowels, S and three N’s for $10K more, but then a MAJOR DUD of F for flunk to likely throw away $20,950. Laura then puts up triple B’s and two L’s at $700 apiece…
B O B / D _ L A N
_ I N S / T H E
N O B E L / _ R I _ E
…she solves “BOB DYLAN WINS THE NOBEL PRIZE” for the early lead by $500.

SOLE LaT: Molly
Crossword/Mystery Round: GOLF ______
Kyle’s road to redemption begins w/ a $7K T pair, four E’s, a $600 N, two U’s and an I, after which come a P for the WC and an M on the MW near $650 before he obviously declines (that’s probably the BANKRUPT one). But he then gets into trouble w/ the MDW’s left side to have $8,350 and the WC torn up to pieces. Laura then inserts a $650 B, the last vowel of O, a $700 L and a $500 R. Grid…
(T) / (_)(O)(U)(R)(_)(E)
(E) / (L)
/ / (B)
…she scores a $1,600 birdie w/ COURSE, EQUIPMENT and CLUB, giving her $5,100 now.
SOLE BANKRUPT: Kyle
PP/Express Round: PHRASE
Laura leads off w/ two N’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600, A, but then the sole bad vowel of O. Second for Molly are an $1,800 G pair, two I’s, an S for the Bicycle gift tag, four E’s, four T’s at add $2,600, a U, and a $2,700 H trio. We have…
G E T T I N G
T H E _ E / I S
H A _ _ / T H E / _ U N
…according to her, GETTING THERE IS HALF THE FUN, and she’s won $7,850 plus a trip to that Sandals La Source in GRENADA worth $50 less than the money amount she won that round.
SOLE DUD: O (Laura)
Kyle: BAD SHAPE/Laura: $5,100/Molly: $18,650 cash & Grenada
