Calling All Homophones

In this week's on-air puzzle, each definition or clue contains a missing word. That word is a homophone of the word that answers the clue. For example: If the clue is "have (blank) doubt" the missing word would be "no," completing the phrase "have no doubt." "No" and "know" are the homophones.
