If Jeopardy! Wanted to Portray a More Stereoptypical Italian, It Would Have Had to Track Down The Situation!
from 1/31/11...a classic
Johnny Marigliano, a pizza maker originally from Brooklyn, New York
Jean Dupon, a college chemistry instructor from San Carlos, California
Eureka Nutt, a paralegal from Canoga Park, California (whose 1-day cash winnings total $18,801)
Alex: Thanks, Johnny. Thank you all very much and welcome to our show. Johnny, a medium with pepperoni and sausage after the show, please.
Johnny (the contestant): You want it to stay or to go?
Alex: To go. You and Jean have to watch out for Eureka. She knows how to play the game.
Alex: Johnny's people are working on that pizza. Johnny Marigliano, originally from Brooklyn, New York, and you had an incident with a celebrity, and you didn't recognize him at the very beginning.
Johnny: Not right away. I was crossing 6th Avenue, and this big guy almost hits me on a bicycle.
Johnny: I was about to say, "Oh, what are you doin'?" And it turned out, it was Tony Soprano.
Alex: James Gandolfini.
Johnny: James Gandolfini, yeah, not the actual, so--
Alex: Fellow Italian.
Johnny: Hey, yeah.
Alex: Did you get to talk to him at all? No?
Johnny: No, he gave me this little smile, and I got a little starstruck.
Alex: Okay, good for you.
Alex: And, eureka, before I ask you to make your wager, we have a change in score to announce, , and it will benefit johnny, because we failed to put "for the common man" in quotation marks. "Tantara," your response, is acceptable.
