Oz in Jeopardy!

Due to some technical hitches with my computer, and a very busy workload, I've missed posting the past few Oz-related clues from Jeopardy! here. But that's going to change now. I'm going to try to go back and find them and post them here. I won't be able to take a screen grab like I've done in the past, but I can still give you a sense of what it looked like. So here's the most recent one, earlier this week, on February 25. In the first round, one of the categories — this was some really crative thinking — is Non-Memorable Movie Quotes. These are not the famous lines that a movie is known for, but some of the more common and pedestrian ones. Sure enough, the very first clue, for $200:

(1939) RAY BOLGER:
"OH, NO!"

Jorge, the returning champion, was the first to ring in, and gave the correct response of, "What is The Wizard of Oz?" You can see a recap of the entire game here at the J-Archive.
