More information about Final Jeopardy:

According to Open Source Shakespeare, the word “moon” was used in 23 different speeches in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, compared to only 10 in Love’s Labour’s Lost and the 8 in The Taming of the Shrew. “Moonlight” occurs in 5 speeches A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1 apiece for The Merchant of Venice and The Taming of the Shrew.)

    With Kate and Petruchio’s “moon and sun” back-and-forth in The Taming of the Shrew, I would’ve gotten hooked on this play and never come around to the right answer.

  2. Tori is 1/2 in Final Jeopardy!, not 0/2.

  3. I remember some years back when someone missed that title because they answered What is “A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream”
