Fourteen clues in this crossword have gone time-tripping. Each is a three-part phrase like “hook, ______, and sinker.” The first word is in the past — embedded in the previous clue; the final word is in the future, embedded in the next clue. Remove the interlopers to read those clues, then bring the two words back to the “present” to find the answer to the missing clue.
