Oz in Jeopardy!

I told you this was a busy week! The third semifinal in the 2018 Teachers Tournament featured no Oz clues, and it was won by Larry. So for the two-game finale, we have Steve, Larry, and Claire duking it out for bragging rights and a whole bunch of money. So, in the first match, on May 17, 2018, the Double Jeopardy! round had the category The Month of May, with this clue for $1600:

Larry signaled first and correctly responded, "What is emerald?" He went on to handily win the first match—but they were only halfway through! In the second match, the game for May 18, 2018, again in the Double Jeopardy! round there were two linked categories, Are You There God? and It's Me, Margaret. In the latter category, the $1200 clue read:
Again, Larry rang in first, and again he responded correctly, this time with, "Who is Margaret Hamilton?" Again, Larry went on to a convincing win, and so he won the whole tournament, $100,000, and a spot in the next Tournament of Champions. Not bad!
