Transcript 12/13/2020 - Amanda Sheehan (carryover)

#1 Post by BBTranscriptTeam » Sun Dec 20, 2020 7:18 pm

Amanda Sheehan
registered ICU nurse

Amanda's "smartest person" is her dad, Bob. If she wins the $1 million she wants to move out of state and open a pug ranch. It would be like a pug petting zoo; dogs are very theraputic. Jimmy suggests she could call it "Hug a Pug".

$4000: Designed to simulate the hot, barren environment of Mars, the Hawai'i Space Exploration Analog and Simulation is an isolated habitat located where?
A - top of a waterfall
B - edge of a glacier
C - side of a volcano
D - bottom of a lake

Amanda thinks it's C and her dad agrees with her.
Answer: C (side of a volcano)
$8000: "Ghost Protocol," "Rogue Nation" and "Fallout" are the subtitles of three films in what action-packed movie franchise?
A - Planet of the Apes
B - Die Hard
C - Terminator
D - Mission: Impossible

Amanda knows that her father is a big MI fan.
Answer: D (Mission: Impossible)
$16,000: The original draft of what John Steinbeck novel had to be rewritten after much of it was eaten by his dog Toby?
A - On The Road
B - Of Mice and Men
C - The Sun Also Rises
D - Brave New World

Amanda names the authors of A, C, and D and says she used to work at Barnes & Noble. Her dad says it's one of Steinbeck's best.
Answer: B (Of Mice and Men)
$32,000: According to a 2020 ranking by Forbes magazine, what pro sports team's "Lambeau loyalists" are the country's most passionate sports fans?
A - Green Bay Packers
B - Boston Red Sox
C - Pittsburgh Steelers
D - Golden State Warriors

Amanda has no idea but her dad says he believes that the Packers play at Lambeau Field. He's 90% positive.
Answer: A (Green Bay Packers)
Amanda now has to decide if she wants to keep her dad by exchanging him for another lifeline. She swaps out the 50:50.

$64,000: When "Rough and Rowdy Ways" debuted at #2 on the charts, who became the first singer to have a Top 40 album in every decade from the 1960s to the 2020s?
A - Willie Nelson
B - Cher
C - Bob Dylan
D - Barbra Streisand

Amanda is more familiar with contemporary music while her dad is more familiar with classic music.
Ask the smartest person results:
Bob is uncertain about it but his first inclination is Willie Nelson because he's been around a long time. His other choice would be Cher. He leans more toward Willie Nelson, and is 60-70% sure.
Amanda hopes that she will know the later questions and decides to ask the host.
Ask the host results:
Jimmy says he may make this a little more murky, although he's certain it isn't Cher or Streisand. Amanda says that Dylan is still alive and making music. Jimmy knows Willie Nelson and he's pretty laid back, not rowdy. Jimmy thinks it's Dylan. He's not 100% certain, however. He thinks he'd know if Willie Nelson had put out an album with that title.
Amanda goes with Jimmy's answer.
Answer: C (Bob Dylan)
commercial break

$125,000: At the end of "Toy Story 4," Woody decides to leave Bonnie's home and start a new life with what toy?
A - Mr. Potato Head
B - Bo Peep
C - Gabby Gabby
D - Forky

This is on her Disney+ queue but instead of watching it she watched Frozen 2 for "about the eighth time". She knows that Woody was in love with Bo Peep for all the movies but she's seen so many memes about him and Forky. Her phone-a-friend, Nathan, won't know this (earlier she mentioned that he was an aerospace engineer). She says that the heartbeat background isn't helping - it's symptomatic bradycardia, not a healthy heartbeat. She's not usually a risk-taker but she's going to make an educated guess.
Amanda answers D (Forky)
Answer: B (Bo Peep)
commercial break
