LOOGAROO LAMENTS: If I were in David's shoes, I too would have asked the audience. I didn't pay much attention to the store Monica bought the dress from; I was too busy demanding that Clinton be thrown out on his ear. : )

David picks B...

and confirms that it's his final answer.

But unfortunately, he missed it. It was A. Pakistan.
So, David leaves with $1000.

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: I'd have gotten snagged on this question as well. I knew it was in southern Asia, but didn't know exactly where. If the Philippines had come up as well, I'd have been in real trouble.
