Eddie worked through this quite well - but terms like "first cousin" and "cousin once removed" can be tricky - I'm not sure they mean the same thing in different parts of the country.

Never heard of this web series, and the only HBO show I know about is Westworld. I'll ATA.

The Islamic calendar is also a lunar calendar but they don't factor in leap years, which is why Ramadan moves through the calendar year.

In a leap year, the month of Adar is replaced with two months, Adar Alef and Adar Bet. I'd call Adar Bet the leap month. If you die during Adar in a regular year, your relatives observe your Yahrzeit in leap years during Adar Alef, not Adar Bet.

I just saw this episode in L.A. It's not really relevant to Millionaire, but +1 Jonathan Dinerstein was part of the team (which included three Jeopardy champions) who split $600,000 on the last episode of "Million Dollar Mind Game" in 2011.

5K: Haven't seen any of the movies. Never heard character's name. ATA

20K: Not the Ashkenazi pronunciation. But contestant got it anyway, based on knowing Jewish calendar is lunar.

30K: I'd go for 31% or 20%. 50/50, then worry. +1

Cameron was a himself, played by Alan Ruck. I recently noticed him in a few episodes of "The Catch" and thought he hadn't done much since FBDO. I just looked up his IMDB credits and, holy crap, he's been very busy for a long time!
