Alex Trebek: I hate my job. The answer was “mustard”. Mustard is made from mustardseeds. Mr. Reynolds, it’s still your board.

Burt Reynolds: Yeah well, why don’t you give me, ah.. why don’tcha give me Ape Tit for $200.

Alex Trebek: It’s not “Ape Tit.” It’s A Petit.. [ shakes head ] ..never mind! Let’s justgo to “Animal Sounds” for $600. This is the sound a doggy makes. [ Connery buzzes in ] Mr. Connery.

Alex Trebek: No.

Burt Reynolds: That was a funny dog, Scooby Doo. He drove around in a van and, ah,solved mysteries.

Sean Connery: Ah, ruff. Just the way your mother likes it Trebek!

Alex Trebek: Come on, that’s way out of line, but.. [ Reynolds walks up to Trebek wearing a large hat ] Mr. Reynolds, what are you doing?

Burt Reynolds: Ha-ha! Yeah, I found this backstage, an over-sized hat. It’s funny.

Alex Trebek: No, it’s not!

Burt Reynolds: Sure it is. It’s funny. It’s funny because it’s ah, bigger than, ah.. [ clears throat ] ..you know, a normal hat.

Alex Trebek: Uh, I see that. Get back to your podium.

Burt Reynolds: [ laughs ] Take a look at that!

Alex Trebek: Yeah, I see it. Go back to your podium. [ Reynolds goes back to his podium ] It’s not funny. What’s going on? Okay, let’s just move on to FinalJeopardy. And the category is.. you know what? I tell you what, just write a number. Any number, any number and you win. [ music starts ] We’ll accept anynumber, any number at all.. a one, or a two, or a three, or how about a four? It’s that simple, I know you can do this.

Burt Reynolds: Yeah, don’t bother, I didn’t write anything.

Alex Trebek: Good work, all right. Finally, Mr. Connery.. the category was Numbers,and you wrote.. [ shows his screen ] ..a letter V. Well, I tell you what, my friend -V is a Roman numeral, so despite your best efforts, you answered correctly. Let’s see what you wagered.. [ wager is revealed to use the V as part of a K in”Suck it Trebek” ] “Suck it Trebek”. [ Connery laughs wildly ] That’s all the timewe have. Good night, my..
