Carl is an accounta - excuse me, Auditor, whose great ambition to be a screenwriter. Hopefully he'll win enough money to devote more time to his writing.

For $100:
1. Which of the following is NOT a character in the movie "The Wizard of Oz"?

A. GlindaB. Scarecrow

For $200:
2. The French word "chapeau" means what in English?

A. HatB. Horse
C. CastleD. Surrender

Carl is pretty sure it's A, but he took Spanish in school rather than French, so he'll have to Ask the Audience.

A. Hat - 84%B. Horse - 5%

C. Castle - 9%D. Surrender - 2%

The audience convinced him - Carl picks A...

Which is his final answer.

And that audience is on fire!

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: What is it with those writers and French? So far, there's been 3 questions about French words or phrases; only one Spanish question (El Dorado), and none for any other language. What about German or Italian?

For $300:
3. Which of the following is a song by the Beatles?

A. Raspberry BeretB. Strawberry Fields Forever
C. Blueerry HillD. Cherry. Cherry

One answer is standing out for Carl, and that's B...

Which he says is his final answer.

Dief can breathe a sigh of relief; he's right!

For $500:
4. On what day of the week is the federal holiday known as Memorial Day observed?

A. ThursdayB. Saturday
C. MondayD. Sunday

Carl goes with C...

Yes, that's his final answer.

5. In a poem by Edgar Allan Poe, what creature is "gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door"?

A. The RavenB. The Crow
C. The GhostD. The Bat

Carl says it's A...

And that's his final answer.

Quoth the raven, "Nevermore... will you leave the studio with less than $1000!"

For $2000:
6. What is the name of the dwarf trees cultivated in Japan?

A. BungakuB. Shinto
C. GinzaD. Bonsai

Wax on, wax off; he's right!

For $4000:
7. What is the capital of Florida?

A. TallahasseeB. Orlando
C. MiamiD. Tampa

Carl harkens back to his 8th grade social studies classes. He picks A...

And says that's his final answer.

Of course he's right!

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: Yet again, a question that anyone could figure out is on the middle level. I bet Robby Roseman is backstage screaming at himself now.

For $8000:
8. Who directed the movie "Goodfellas"?

A. Francis Ford CoppollaB. Barry Levinson
C. Martin ScorseseD. Quentin Tarantino

What a coinky-dink - that's his favorite director! Carl goes for C...

He's been getting a lot of movie questions tonight, and this one is right!

For $16,000:
9. What historic document begins, "When in the course of human events..."?

A. Declaration of IndependenceB. The Consitiution

Carl quickly declares it's B...

Yes, that's his answer.

Carl had two lifelines left...

But he didn't use them...

But that's because he didn't need them!
Carl's just guaranteed himself $32,000!

For $64,000:
11. In the "Peanuts" comic strip, what is the name of Linus and Lucy's little brother?

A. RerunB. Benny
C. Pig PenD. Max

The only character he recognizes from the strip is Pig Pen... and Rerun is from "What's Happening!" He'll try a 50:50.

A. Rerun OUT


Well, it's good thing he didn't commit to Pig Pen. He's pretty sure it's Max. He selects D...

But wait, he hasn't committed to a final answer yet. He's going to call his friend Bob first, just to be super-duper sure. Here's the transcript, after the question and choices (and after Bob repeats the question and choices back):

    Bob: ".......................I think that, uh, I would say Max. But, uh, I'm not sure."
    Carl: "I would too. I've got the 'What's Happening!' thing going on here..."
    Bob: "Yeah, but Rerun's--" (Time's up)

Looks like his friend agrees with him. Carl picks D...

And NOW that's his final answer.

If you read Peanuts regularly...

You know that Max is...

Not a character. It was A. Rerun. It might be in "What's Happening!", but it's in "Peanuts" too.
So, Carl Park says goodbye with $32,000.

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: This was kinda tough, but still I think this is a better mid-level question than high-level. As for Carl, well, when he sat at the podium during the 900 number graphics, he looked none too pleased with himself. Actually, he was pretty stoic the entire game. Maybe he should try out for Jeopardy!...

WINNINGS TO DATE: $461,000, at least.

It's halftime! Let's check out the stats so far...
