Oz in Jeopardy!

Oz and related clues on Jeopardy! have been pretty scarce this season — until a few weeks ago, when it went crazy, with six clues over two weeks. So, I'm going to see if I can get caught up in time for the new year. I seem to be having some technical issues that may cause problems (or at least non-screengrabbed clues), however.

So, let's jump in with the game for December 9, the one that opened the floodgates. In the Jeopardy! round category You Probably Think This Song Is About You (which came after You're So Vague, of course), the $800 clue was about Peter Gabriel writing "In Your Eyes" about Rosanna Arquette. Then, for $1000:

Craig, the defending champion, rang in first and correctly responded, "What is Toto?" And since I have done this in the past whenever Toto songs come up:
So Rosanna Arquette inspired not only two songs, but two consecutive Jeoprady! clues. Oh, and Craig went on to win the match and defend his title.

The next day, on the December 10th show, the second category in the Double Jeopardy! round was:

This was all about domed stadiums. I almost didn't include this one here, because it's a very slight Oz link, and the phrase "There's no place like home" predates The Movie. But the other Oz clues that week made me reconsider.

But we'll just have to leave that on a cliffhanger! More clues coming up later this week!
