The WEATHER FORECAST in my area is actually pretty cold, but Bobby’s two for two so far.
Round 1: LIVING THINGS
All Bobby here — he calls up a $1,200 pair of S’s, E and A singles, four I’s to round out the vowels, and four N’s to add $2K.
S I N _ I N _
N I _ _ T I N _ A _ E S
I wish he went one more for those G’s, but he gets SINGING NIGHTINGALES for $3,150 and $6,150 overall — PR.
Mystery Round: TITLE
Natalie gets that MDW right away w/ S and says a T on the MW near LaT before she obviously turns it down (it actually would’ve been good). After she buys two I’s and an A, she picks up the WC w/ two L’s and goes for a quick solve…
I T ‘ S / A

…the holiday movie “IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE” is worth $1,500 and PR #2.
PP/Express Round: PEOPLE
Lynette’s up first w/ an $1,100 N pair, a single A, but then the LaT. Second, Bobby takes four S’s for $2,800, buys three E’s and an O, but the BANKRUPT near $3,500 steals his remaining $2,300. Third, Natalie puts up a $55 D, but the sole dud vowel of I stops her. After Lynnette flunks out w/ T…
S _ _ _ E _ S / A N D
S N O _ _ E _ E _ S
…Bobby will see some SURFERS AND SNORKELERS on his trip to the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort in OAHU worth $7,848.

$3K Tossup: PHRASE
A / N I _ _ / C _ _ _ K
O F / C _ A _ G E
Bobby can’t do it and Lynnette also has a brain fart.
A / N I C E / C H _ N K
O F / C _ A _ G E
Natalie triples her money, and that’s A NICE CHUNK OF CHANGE.
Round 4: WAYD?
Next from her mouth are a $550 N, a $500 G, two obvious I’s, double A’s, and a single E, before the R ends her turn. Second for Lynnette are an $800 L, a $700 F, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to hand over $1,500. After Bobby LaTs out, Natalie puts up a single O, a $1,300 pair of B’s, two U’s, a FP Y, and a $1K pair of T’s before we finally show you…
