Alex Trebek, noted eater of six pot brownies, was reading for the category "Music & Literature Before & After" when he gave the following clue: "A song by Coolio from 'Dangerous Minds' goes back in time to become a 1667 John Milton classic." Contestants were required to combine the names of works of music and literature from different time periods. Contestant Nick Spicher responded, looking very proud of himself indeed, with the following: "What is Gangster's Paradise Lost." Trebek awarded him the points, and we all pretended it wasn't weird to hear him say that. Spicher now led the pack with $11,200.
But moments later, Trebek interrupted the game to reveal that the judges had reviewed the answer. It was, in fact, incorrect, by one syllable. "You said 'Gangster's' instead of 'Gangsta's' on that song by Coolio," Trebek explained. "We take $3,200 away from you so you are now in second place."
