May i have a Word pounce 0001
Pounce is an episode of May I Have a Word where Emily correctly defined the word.


After the clips are shown in Round 1, Emily breaks out into laughter over how cute Huggy is when he pounces on people. She then buzzes in to define the word, but asks that Huggy pounce on something first. Beau acts annoyed, but Huggy ends up pouncing on his head. Emily then defines pounce as "to spring on something or someone suddenly."

Emily answers the bonus round question correctly, selecting #1, which shows Huggy pouncing.
