Final Jeopardy! Round responses

SHIPS
(Alex: All 3 players wrote down their responses immediately, and that means probably that you all got it right; and so strategy and wagering will determine the champion.)
...
(Alex [after reading Anne's response]: What were you writing?)
(Anne: I started to write HMS, and I was afraid it wasn't right; so I thought I'd better stick with "Beagle".)
(Alex: That's fine, the Beagle is right. And if you wagered enough, you will remain champion. [wager revealed] The bet was $4,201 and that takes you up to $10,801 and you remain champion with a 2-day total of $12,400. Congratulations to you. We'll see you tomorrow as we wrap up the week right here on Jeopardy!. Do join us then, won't you? So long.)
