The Trebek courtship of Houston McLovin continues. First cool-guy Alex takes an implicit shot at the Jeopardy! writers, confirming with Tom that the pun-filled question was not funny. Then Alex openly invites Tom to join him in living in LA, where it's prime for "seismic studies," then looks Tom in the eyes. As if the entendre wasn't clear enough, Tom's rebuff -- "But then I would have to live here" -- leaves Alex visibly defeated. Hey, I tried, his body slumps toward the camera.
