OPHIRA EISENBERG, HOST:

Now, we're going to crown this week's grand champion. Let's bring back Emily, Mary, Craig and Caitlin to play our Ask Me One More final round.

(APPLAUSE)

EISENBERG: Our puzzle guru Greg Pliska will take us out with this final round titled Wardrobe Of Games.

GREG PLISKA: For this final round, every answer will contain an article of clothing or wardrobe accessory. So if I said, colorful wasps sometimes mistaken for bees, you would answer, yellow jackets - jackets being an article of clothing. Now, we're playing this spelling bee-style, so one wrong answer, and you're out. You'll only have a few answers to give us an answer. And the last person standing will be our ASK ME ANOTHER grand winner. And for your prize, you will receive the special "Veep" commemorative coins that Anna Chlumsky gives to the crew at the end of each season. Now, remember, every answer will contain an article of clothing or wardrobe accessory. Ready?

EMILY LANGOWITZ: Yeah.

PLISKA: All right, let's begin. Emily, Chelsea Clinton rescued this feline who became a resident of the White House.

LANGOWITZ: Boots?

PLISKA: No, I'm sorry. That's not correct.

Mary, do you know the answer?

MARY CASS: Socks.

PLISKA: Socks is correct.

Emily, thank you so much, sorry to see you go.

(APPLAUSE)

PLISKA: All right, Craig, '80s sitcom about ex-hippies, Steven and Elyse Keaton, raising their children during the Reagan era?

CRAIG RISINGER: "Family Ties."

PLISKA: That's correct.

(APPLAUSE)

PLISKA: Caitlin, the common name for the bone in the leg known as the patella.

CAITLIN MILLAT: The bone of shirts.

(LAUGHTER)

PLISKA: No, I'm sorry. That's not correct.

MILLAT: So close.

PLISKA: Mary, do you know what bone in the leg is known as the patella?

CASS: The shoe bone?

PLISKA: No, I'm afraid that's not it.

Craig, do you know the bone in the leg?

RISINGER: The kneecap?

PLISKA: Kneecap is correct. Craig, you are our winner.

(APPLAUSE)

EISENBERG: That was a crazy final round. Congratulations, Craig. You're our ASK ME ANOTHER big winner. Enjoy your grand prize.
