Hillary Daw is the fastest!

Hillary is a music professor at Kennesaw State University. She specializes in opera.

For $100:
1. What army bugle call is used to wake up the troops?

A. TapsB. Charge
C. ReveilleD. Feelings

Hillary chooses C...

And yes, that's her final answer.

It's a good one; she's just won $100!

For $200:
2. Which of the following animals has been clocked at a land speed of 70 MPH?

A. CheetahB. Greyhound
C. RabbitD. Snail on Caffeine

Hillary chooses A...

And it's her final answer.

Another right answer! $200.

For $300:
3. What substance, used to stiffen shirt collars, is also found in some foods?

A. FiberB. Glucose
C. StarchD. Viagra

Reege: "I'm sorry! I don't write them!"

Hillary chooses C...

Yes, that's her final answer.

She's right again! $300.

For $500:
4. What was the name of King Arthur's sword?

A. ExcelsiorB. Excalibur
C. ExtemporaD. Eczema
Hillary picks B...

And that's her final answer.

She's correct! Up to $500.

For a guaranteed $1000:
5. What kind of vehicle is a "trawler?"

A. TrainB. Boat
C. CarD. Airplane

Hillary thinks she knows the answer, but to be sure, she'll Ask the Audience.

A. Train - 13%B. Boat - 75%

C. Car - 9%D. Airplane - 3%
Now she's even more worried, because the crowd favorite, B, was not her first choice.
But she's going to bite the bullet and pick B.

Hesitantly, she declares that's her final answer.

And the audience comes through again! Hillary is guaranteed $1,000!

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: I wouldn't have needed the lifeline. I remember that "trawling" is a fishing term, meaning you just leave a special lure on the line as the boat travels slowly, fooling fish into thinking the bait is alive. Thus, I knew it was B.

For $2000:
6. Which of following poker hands does not beat a "full house"?

A. Four of a KindB. Royal Flush
C. Straight FlushD. Three of a Kind

Again, Hillary is struggling. All this time, I'm cursing at the TV. As Hillary vocally mulls over the final part of the question, she decides a 50:50 is in order.


C. Straight FlushD. Three of a Kind

Hillary: "Love the 50:50."
Suddenly confident, she picks D...

and confirms that it's her final answer.

And she's right! Up to $2000!

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: Hillary, you idiot! If you knew what a Full House is (Three of a Kind plus a Pair) you'd know that D was the right answer. Lifeline #2, wasted.

For $4000:
7. Which TV series featured the wedding of real-life couple Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker?

A. Hill Street BluesB. LA Law
C. The PracticeD. St. Elsewhere

Hillary knows this one. (Wow, that's a shock.) She picks B...

Yes, that's her final answer.

Didn't need help for this one! $4000!

For $8000:
8. What is the capital of Iraq?

A. TehranB. Basra
C. BaghdadD. Riyadh

Hillary is again struggling. She decides to use her last Lifeline to call Tim Hite, Jr, her brother. Here is the transcript of the call (after Hillary reads the question and choices)

    Tim: "I think it's Baghdad."
    Hillary: "Timmy, it's kind of important..."
    (audience laughs)
    Tim: "I think it's C., Baghdad."
    Hillary: "Iraq. I-R-A-Q."
    Tim: "Excuse me?"
    Hillary: "I-R-A-Q." (Time's up)

Well, all three Lifelines are gone. So she's going to trust her brother and say C...

Which is her final answer.

After a small pause, Regis tells her...

that she's won $8000!

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: Yet another answer I knew without the Lifeline. Hillary, I don't care if you're only a music professor at Kennesaw State. You're still a professor, dammit! You gotta know SOMETHING besides what show Eickenberry and Tucker got married!!


Between shows, Hillary and her son had talked over their strategy. With no Lifelines left, her son advises her to play it safe. Will she? Here's the $16,000 question to find out:

For $16,000:
9. What famous novel features a character named Boo Radley?

A. The Color PurpleB. Catcher in the Rye
C. Gone with the WindD. To Kill a Mockingbird

Hillary knows this one, and that makes her happy. She picks D...

And says that's her final answer.

After a longer pause, Regis tells her...

She's right again!! Hillary sings her delight!

For a guaranteed $32,000:
10. Which of the following is not guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment?

A. Right to Bear ArmsB. Right to Assemble
C. Freedom of SpeechD. Freedom of the Press

Hillary knows that the history professors at Kennesaw State are "looking down their noses" at her. She is stumped. Even worse, she's already used up her Lifelines. So, Hillary does the only recourse that's really available to her: Take her son's advice. She stops with $16,000.

The correct answer was A. Right to bear arms.

LOOGAROO LAMENTS: This cements it - this woman stumbled her way on to the show. Anyone who's ever taken a Poli Sci or Government class should know the Constitution. Even if she didn't know the exact answer, she still could have done it by process of elimination. Had I have been in hot seat, I'd be pulling a Van Gundy. (Making it to the $32K plateau keeping all of my Lifelines intact.)
