PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, on to our final game, Lightning Fill In The Blank. Each of our players now has 60 seconds in which to answer as many fill in the blank questions as he or she can, each correct answer now worth two points. Carl, can you give us the scores?

CARL KASELL: Adam Felber has the lead, Peter. He has four points, Kyrie O'Connor has three; Paula Poundstone, two.

SAGAL: All right. Well, Paula, you are sadly in third place so you will start.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Boy, we haven't heard those words ever before.
