They couldn't think of a better way to put that "Jeopardy!" Wardrobe to good use. How is the family? We're good. You know, we're hanging in there. Reporter: Alex trebek's son Matt says he, his mom and sister are still figuring out how to be a family of three. After trebek's passing in November.

The wardrobe at "Jeopardy!" Consisted of close to 300 dress shirts, hundreds of ties. The "Jeopardy!" Wardrobe of suits was around 20 at the studio, is that right? I think probably, probably about that, when you think they shoot, you know, five shows a day throughout the week they need to constantly need to make different combinations, so they had a large wardrobe. No "A.T." Stitched on the inside. Nothing. They're good suits. You described your dad's style to me. He was pretty dapper when he would dress up and very clean and definitely has his own particular taste in the way he would -- I remember when I was growing up, he would dress me in suits, our style was different. Reporter: This this sfur of a moment speech during one of his final shows that trebek implored all Americans to give back and take care of one another. We're trying to build a gentler, Kinder society. If we pitch in a little bit we'll get there. This fits into what he believed and you know passing along kindness to others. It's nice to see it still continues. One of his last acts his memoir that came out months before he passed, all the proceeds. All the money goes to charity. Matt kept one tie, a tie that his mom gave to his dad. Such a beautiful family. Thank you. T.J.
