"Wingin' it"

The Puzzler


TOM: It means you're doing it without any preparation.

RAY: Right. And, it turns out that actors who don't know their lines go on stage and rely on people in the wings to feed them their lines. They are, in other words, winging it.

Because we don't have any lines, we're not wingin' it.

TOM: I don't know what we're doing but it ain't wingin' it.

RAY: Who's our winner?

TOM: The winner is Jim Baldwin from Plymouth, Indiana.
