Doug stares at the question in thought. Then, he asks a question which quells what might have been another controversy:

Doug: "Is that facing to the right as I look at the coin, or facing to the president's right as if he were looking at me?"
Reege: "As you're looking at the president. He's looking this way (turns right) to your right."

Doug has a feeling he knows the answer, but he doesn't seem sure enough to go out on the limb.

"How nervous does my wife look right about now?"

Doug is going to Ask the Audience.

A. Half Dollar - 18%B. Quarter - 17%

C. Nickel - 10%D. Penny - 55%

The Audience favors Penny, but for the first time in the two weeks, every choice has gotten at least 10% of the vote. Even worse, Penny wasn't Doug's first instinct. So, he's going to call his friend Jim. Here's the transcript:

    Jim: "I think it's the Nickel, Doug."
    Doug: "OK."
    Jim: "You said looking to the right, correct?"
    Doug: "Yeah. I'm looking at the coin, and he's facing to the right. He is facing to my right."
    Jim: "Uh, that's the Nickel, Doug."
    Doug: "OK."(Time's Up)

Now Doug is in real trouble. The Audience said Penny. His friend said Nickel. And all this time, he thought it was the Quarter.

Reege: "Mozart sounds pretty easy now, doesn't it?"
Doug: "Oh yeah!"

Doug decides to use his last remaining Lifeline - the 50:50.
