B - they end in "land"
C - they start with "New"
D - they end in "City"

Kyle names San Francisco, San Diego, & San Antonio. Only New York City starts with "new" and he can't think of any that end in "land" or "City". Kyle decides to ask Bill.
Ask the smartest person results:
Bill says "that's a stumper". He says that "San" is mostly the west coast and the southwest. He can't think of too many cities that end in "land". He thinks it's either C or D. If he had to choose, he'd pick C. Kyle asks how confident Bill is - he replies 80%.
Kyle says he hates to do this since it's a free guess but he's going to use another lifeline and ask Jimmy.
Ask the host results:
Jimmy says that they should be Los Angeles is #2, Chicago is #3, and San Francisco and Philadelphia are #4 & #5. He thinks Houston and Dallas would be among the top 20 also. He knows that Phoenix and Denver are on the list as well. He names New York City and possibly Oklahoma City. Kyle mentions San Jose as the possible fourth. Jimmy then mentions Kansas City but says that San Jose is larger.
Kyle makes A his final answer.
Answer: A (they start with "San")

Phone-a-friend results:
Kyle reads the question and answers, leaving 13 seconds. Danny says he has no idea but if he had to guess he would say "black ale".
Kyle was thinking the same thing but for no particular reason. He has no desire to risk the money he has won and decides to walk away. He would have said A.
Answer: C (DNA)
