TOM: I'll figure out the answer. Give me the first letter.
RAY: The first letter is S.
TOM: Uh S, yeah.
RAY: This is no time to be thinking about it, you should have been thinking about it all last week.
TOM: All right, I give up.
RAY: And the second letter is C, and the third letter is E, the fourth is N, and the fifth is T. SCENT.
TOM: Oh, it's good.
RAY: And you wind up with the word, sent, S-E-N-T.
TOM: Scent or sent.
RAY: Or C-E-N-T. Pretty good, eh? Who's our winner?
TOM: The winner this week is Claude Lowry from Greenwood, Indiana, and for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Claude is going to get a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at Car Talk.com, where he can get our CD chock full of calls about mothers and cars. The collection is called, "Maternal Combustion," and it's yours Claude, for being this week's puzzler winner. Congratulations, buddy.
