Instructions: Guess the words defined by the cryptic clues (answers vary in length from three to ten letters, and four are capitalized) then enter them in the grid one after another in the same order as their clues, starting in the upper left corner. Across words that don't end at the right continue on the next row, and down words that don't end at the bottom continue in the next column. Six down words won't fit in the grid unless one of their letters is placed outside it; those six letters form a word. Besides that, eight across words and eight down words won't fit in the grid unless one of their letters is omitted altogether. Those sixteen letters, taken in order as they occur in across and down words, spell a four-word phrase related to the outlying word.
