Most of us occasionally do WINDOW-SHOPPING, and Pat has the answer for control.
Round 1: SONG LYRICS
A $650 L gets her started, followed by buys of four E’s and an A, but then the BANKRUPT near $2,500 to lose the $150 remainder. Second, Yoni calls up four T’s for $3,200, two $700 H’s, two I’s, five O’s, and a $650 R, but the other normal BANKRUPT takes away $4,750. Third in line, Jenn gets the WC w/ two G’s, the last vowel of U, a $1K pair of S’s, but then the same BANKRUPT Pat got to forfeit $1,750 and her WC. Pat then SPINGLES for the $550 B…

…she exactly recites “I’VE GOT THE BRAINS, YOU’VE GOT THE LOOKS” (from the Pet Shop Boys’ “Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)”) for a $2K lead over the other lady.
BANKRUPTS: 3 (whole gang)
Mystery Round: SAME LETTER
Yoni picks up the 1/2 CAR near $900 right away w/ a T, but loses his turn just as quick w/ an R. Jenn secondly finds a $550 S, an L for the $10K Slots wedge, three A’s, the SL Bonus of three $650 M’s, an E, and four O’s before she picks off four N’s and obviously declines for what’s under the MW near LaT (I think that’s the BANKRUPT one). After a $500 G, she buys the other two vowels and…
M A G N I _ I _ E N T
M A L I _ U

…solves MAGNIFICENT MALIBU MANSION for $17,650.
SOLE DUD: R (Yoni)
Yoni: NIL/Jenn: $18,650/Pat: $3K
PP/Express Round: PHRASE
Big leader Jenn spins up two $550S’s, five $650 T’s, two I’s, a $700 H, A and E singles, but the R fails somebody again. Pat follows w/ a $700 P and an $800 M before we see…
