STEVE HARVEY: If Captain Hook was moonlighting as a handyman, he might replace his hook with what tool?

BRUCE SMITH: A hammer.


STEVE HARVEY: Try again.


STEVE HARVEY: Tell me the age a kid is too old to sleep with a teddy-- what the [BLEEP] did he say?

- And even though he liked to share a laugh with contestants, occasionally, he was the one causing the laughs.

ALEX TREBEK: Jessica Rabbit, you're going to wrap up the week with us having earned $46,598.

ALEX TREBEK: This is Alex "Re-bek" saying goodbye until tomorrow.
