OPHIRA EISENBERG, HOST:
And now to end this for once and all, and I mean for this week anyways. Let's bring back our winners from our previous game. We have Olivia Bumgardner from Who's That Girl.
EISENBERG: Andy Cohen from War, Oy, What's It Good For. Liz Kash Stroppel from Character Voices, Mark Kujawski from Crisp Game Arenas and Kiki Turner from Pop Goes the Answer.
EISENBERG: I'm going to turn to our puzzle guru John Chaneski to take us out.
JOHN CHANESKI: Our final game is called Article Adjective Noun. It's a classic template for a book, movie and play title. Start with an article like "the" or "an," throw in an adjective and end with a noun.
In this round, we'll give you the name of an author, playwright or director then a noun. You give the adjective that completes a famous title by that person. For example, if we said F. Scott Fitzgerald's Gatsby, you would say great.
CHANESKI: That was pretty good, as in "The Great Gatsby." Now, we're playing this spelling bee style, so one wrong answer and you're out. You'll only have a few seconds to give us an answer. The last person standing is our grand winner. Here we go. Olivia, Nathaniel Hawthorn's letter.
