Atoncé rhymes with Beyoncé

April 21, 2013

KATHERINE: So, wait, what is 30-down again?

M: “Immediately,” six letters. But none of these really make sense there–

KATHERINE: Atoncé? AH-TONZ? AH-TON-SAY? I guarantee I’m not pronouncing this word right.

M: Yeah, I don’t know.

KATHERINE: Is that a music word? Atoncé? What’s 29-across?

M: Author of a famous comedy, five letters.

KATHERINE: Dante.

M: Oh, right.

KATHERINE: Well, atoncé would fit then.

M: Yes, it would.

KATHERINE: I still don’t know–

KATHERINE: AT ONCE. OH MAN.

[Three-minute laugh break.]

M: Atoncé!

KATHERINE: Fra-gee-lay!

M: That must be Italian!
