RAY: What makes me so sure I can guess at least one of them on the first try? I think I'd preface this by saying this is for the kids in the audience.
TOM: Kids, huh?
RAY: Well, I think so.
TOM: Kids are supposed to know this?
RAY: Well, if it hadn't been Monroe, if Monroe hadn't been one of the three--he was the fifth guy--
RAY: That's the guy he's guessing.
RAY: If he hadn't been...
TOM: Why would you have to say that?
RAY: Why would you say three of the first five? The thing would have said three of the first four. Monroe must be one of them. Otherwise...
RAY: No, well, nothing!
TOM: Well, he could be!
RAY: Well, you could have said three of the first 20!
RAY: Well, that would have been pretty stupid, wouldn't it?
TOM: Well, sure. But three of the first five--you could have said that just to obfuscate!
RAY: I know...
TOM: Well, it would be true!
RAY: No, he says he read it someplace. And wherever he read it would have said three of the first four if Monroe weren't among them.
TOM: Yeah, you're right.
RAY: Of course. Don't try to cloud the issue!
TOM: Yeah. He read it somewhere. If he read it somewhere...but if I were trying to trick you…
RAY: As you always are.
TOM: I mean, that would be a great way to trick you! I could have said three of the first seven. And you would have picked number seven, and you would have been wrong!
RAY: No, maybe...
TOM: Because it was Monroe!
RAY: Maybe he died on the Fourth of July too.
TOM: Is it true?
RAY: I have no idea. Did you check this, Catherine? You didn't check it.
TOM: I don't believe...
RAY: Mayer, did you check it? No. Berman, did you check it? No. Rogers? No.
TOM: Dennis? No.
RAY: It's probably alright with this. It's all right--we'll get more mail. Do we have a winner?
TOM: It doesn't matter because we have a winner anyway. The winner this week is April Ralph. I got confused because I thought it said Ralph in April. The winner this week is April Ralph from League City--what is this?--Texas.
