Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, November 16, 2021

Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Movie Quotes) for Tuesday, November 16, 2021 (Season 38, Game 47):

This 3-word phrase was the protagonist’s second line of dialogue in a 1962 movie, the first in a 25-film series

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s contestants:

Rebecca Clark, an administrative assistant & theatre director from Santa Cruz, California
Rebecca Clark on Jeopardy!
Michael Guarnieri, a film critic & conflicts analyst from Louisville, Kentucky
Michael Guarnieri on Jeopardy!
Andrew He, a software developer from San Francisco, California (4-day total: $137,502)
Andrew He on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Andrew He goes for his all-important 5th win today after surviving a big scare yesterday from Molly Karol. Interestingly, only 23 players in the 37-plus-year history of the show have won $150,000 (or $75,000 pre-doubled) over their first five games; Andrew is only $12,498 from joining that list.

PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

  1. I’ve only seen the Bond movies with Sean Connery in them.

  2. That’s an easy FJ

  3. Thomas Hoisington | November 16, 2021 at 10:26 am |

    Just the fact of a series of movies that long narrows the possibilities pretty darn quickly.

  4. I’m guessing a film critical like Michael will smile when he sees the category. Sometimes things just fall your way.

  5. Bond James bond. I have seen and heard this phrase uttered many times by various bond actors like Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. Very easy final jeopardy.

  6. Somewhere Molly is thinking, “why didn’t they have that final jeopardy one game earlier”

  7. Andrew’s topping $150k in 5 games is a big deal; checked and saw Matt Amodio “only” had $147,800 in 5. If memory serves correct, the last two previous over $150k in 5 were also the last two TOC winners, Sam Kavanaugh and James Holzhauer!

    • Another unprecedented and amazing accomplishment is Andrew is now the 4th TOC qualifier out of the last 8 champions.

    • Incidentally, the runner-up in the last TOC (Jennifer Quail) just missed the $150k mark, with $149,500!

  8. James Bond’s first line is “I admire your courage, miss.” Not quite so iconic.

    The next ToC is shaping up to be a classic. I hope John Focht doesn’t get squeezed out.

  9. Do you think Andrew was joking with his answer?

  10. Brad (not Rutter) | November 16, 2021 at 5:02 pm |

    Andrew is beating some solid challengers. Agree that next ToC will be a doozy. Andrew would be a nightmare opponent for Matt with his true daily doubles.

  11. $1337 bet lol

  12. Fun fact: Patrick McGoohan was first offered the Bond role, but turned it down and recommended his colleague Sean Connery. This line of dialogue is a direct allusion to McGoohan’s self-intro in Season 1 of “Danger Man”: “My name is Drake. John Drake.”

  13. Todd mcdonald | November 16, 2021 at 7:01 pm |

    I had a hard time deciding between Bond. James Bond. and Shaken, Not Stirred since they’re both 3 word phrases from James Bond

  14. Jacqueline Guy | November 16, 2021 at 7:37 pm |

    There is no « chat chapeauté » story in French! I believe they meant « le chat botté » which is
    « Puss and boots »

  15. Ronnie Gambardella | November 16, 2021 at 9:33 pm |

    Tough DD for Michael. He might have won. I also would have crashed and burned on that one as I was thinking “96 Theses”instead of 95

  16. The clue was not right. Not all 25 Bond movies had that line. Only 24. Quantum of Solace did not have it.
