On a standard piano there are 36 of these sharps & flats.

Buzzy sees DD #1 on the $1600 part of The Body Human & $10,800 is currently in his pot for tonight’s game; Austin’s in 2nd w/ nine large & Alan’s dwindled to $4800. Buzzy will gamble the whole kit & kaboodle & this is his answer:

The hip’s this type of joint, meaning that a rounded surface of one bone moves within the depression of another bone.

“What is a ball & socket joint?”- on the mark! This ToC’s last DD is found by…Alan w/ the $2K Eponym; $10,400 is what he has now at his disposal to Buzzy’s $23,200. Alan also goes for broke:

These slips of the tongue that bear a man’s name include “It is now kisstomary to cuss the bride”.

“What’s a Freudian slip?”…WE’RE BOTH WRONG! It’s instead a spoonerism. The BoT go off on the $400 answers for World Theater, 5 Exes & 4 O’s.

“What is a nun fun run?”…good enough. He steps on the $1600 “Mat” to be greeted w/ DD #2 & his current first-place score’s $12,800, followed by Alan (six large) & Buzzy ($3400). $4800 on the line for Austin.

Olive you should know that this capital of the Greek Department of Messenia is a major fruit market.

This Thomas Keneally bestseller was orig. published w/ Ark as the 2nd word in the title.

“What is Schindler’s List?”…right work. This man shortly finds DD #2 using the 2K Baltic Beliefs & maybe he can run away w/ it by betting a big chunk of his 21,200; Pranjal stands at 12,600. Four large is what Alan risks this answer coming from Jimmy in Bornholm Island, Denmark:

“Of the few round churches in northern Europe, four are here on Denmark’s island of Bornholm, leading some to theorize a visit from this religious order of knights, whose churches were all round.”

“What are the Teutonic Knights?”…sorry- who were the Templars?

Edgar Degas did many works using this medium whose name was also used for subdued shades of color.

“What is pastel?”- correct. Buzzy also chooses DD #2 in the leftover 800 answer within the Widows of the Bible; he’s still in front of Jason 17,800-15,400 as Lisa’s hoping for a miracle w/ 2K. Buzzy bets the 2K.
