#1 Post by BBTranscriptTeam » Wed Nov 11, 2020 2:08 pm

Juie Bowen

Julie played Claire Dunphy for 11 years on "Modern Family" and stars opposite Adam Sandler in the Netflix movie "Hubie Halloween". She says that she is going to "crap out" at the $500 question. She watched endless episodes of Millionaire but realized that none of those questions would ever come up, so she watched some Jeopardy! She's playing for Baby2Baby, a charity in Los Angeles that distributes diapers and gently-used clothing to those in need. Julie asks if anyone has won the $1 million. Jimmy says no celebrity has ever done so. Julie asks if the questions for celebrities are easier; Jimmy replies that on Celebrity Jeopardy! the questions are easier. The "smartest person" Julie knows is Jason Ubaldi, the only person who would volunteer to do it. He says that in his defense he thought he was going to be the phone-a-friend. Jimmy says that that role is harder. Jason is a comedy writer.

Ask the host results
Jimmy says he's good with 80s music trivia. He says, weirdly, he watched B last week. Nicolas Cage is in it, and Sean Penn as well. Judge Reinhold was in it, and after naming some of the roles, he comes up with Forest Whittaker and he and Julie debate if he won an Oscar. They discuss Robin Williams, then come back to Whittaker, naming the movie he was in ("Last King of Scotland"). They go through the others and eliminate them one a time. She finally decides to make B her final answer.
Spoiler
Answer: B (Fast Times at Ridgemont High)
THE HORN!!!

Julie will return next week, going for $250,000.

Answer: B (Fast Times at Ridgemont High)
I'd have to call upon a lifeline for this one because I couldn't decide between A and B. That probably means that the 50:50 won't help me. I'd have traded "ask the host" for "smartest person" and call on that lifeline.

Julie and Jimmy discuss if questions for celebrities are easier - if the ones she got are any indication, the answer is yes.
"Elen sila lumenn omentielvo...A star shines on the hour of our meeting."
