He had C and L confused, but still figured it out. It's a pity he didn't hold off on his ATA because the answer came to him just before the results came up.

I would have used my ATA here because I didn't remember the ending of Schindler's List and I've never seen Inglorious Basterds.

Something weird happened with the telecast of this episode in Atlanta. The $10K and $20K questions were excised. The commercial break after the $7K question lasted 8 minutes (16 commercials). Then it resumed with the $30K episode.

Maybe the local station lost the feed and just had to fill the time.

I wasn't familiar with this term, so I looked it up. The first 5 or 6 hits called it an "evening stroll" with no mention of a meal. One site, Fodors, even said this is a PRE-meal stroll.
