As per Sparknotes,

Episode #5 is “The Lotus Eaters”. Episode #17 is “Ithaca”.

This really would have been a better Final Jeopardy last Thursday, what with June 16th being known now as “Bloomsday” (all of the book’s action, of course, takes place on June 16, 1904).

While I haven’t read the book myself, I definitely remember Megan Barnes taunting Steve Bahnaman on Season 1 of “500 Questions”, after Steve missed a question regarding the book’s final word (That word, by the way: “Yes!”)
