[ERRATUM: Othniel Charles Marsh, who named the dinosaur in 1891, never gave an etymology for the name, but it may come from the Greek toreo, making it the "perforated lizard" after the holes in its frill, rather than from the Latin taurus, making it the "bull lizard" as given in the clue.]

Final Jeopardy! Round responses

HISTORIC NAMES
[Paul looks up toward the judges a few seconds before the timpani and holds his light pen up. The "Think!" music ends. He mutters something indistinct.]
(Alex: Didn't write?)
(Paul: I can't get it to write.)
(Alex: Wr--write it on the card in front of you, please.)
[Paul writes his response using the marker and paper card.]
...
(Alex: [Revealing Paul's response] Now hold your card up and show me what you wrote down.)
[Paul holds up response card, his hands shaking.]
(Alex: You came up with the correct response, did you risk enough? Stop shaking!)
(Paul: I'm sorry! [Laughs])
[The reveal of Paul's electronic tablet response is "Who is [squiggle that looks like a lowercase "a", then misshapen "L", "A", and a letter that could be either another "A" or an "F" with a vertical stroke next to it]".]
(Alex: Your wager--$7,401. That means you finish with $32,001, and you are the new Jeopardy! champion!)
[Because Paul was given extra time to write his response, Tom was also brought back in the next game as a co-champion.]
