WORDY WEDNESDAY #120
PENT WORDS 24
This puzzle was written for patron M. Sean Molley, who supports me at the $5+ level on Patreon and is therefore entitled to one bonus puzzle every month. One solver of this bonus puzzle is randomly picked to suggest one word or phrase for me to incorporate into a puzzle. His July 2016 suggestion is used here.
In this puzzle, you must divide the grid into pentominoes (regions containing five cells each), and write a letter in each cell. The rows, reading from left to right, will contain the words hinted at by the ACROSS clues. The letters in the pentominoes, in reading order (left to right starting with the top row), will form the words hinted at by the PENTOMINOES clues; these clues are presented in no particular order. (In the example, the rows spell PLANT, SHARE, and BITES, and the pentominoes spell the words PLANS, TREES, and HABIT.) Use the ACROSS answers to determine where the pentominoes are.

ACROSS (two answers per row):
1 An official language of Fiji / Starts a poker pot
2 Rigoletto, among others / Musical with the song "Memory"
3 Going on a tirade / Female sibling, briefly
4 Puts to sleep / Finish writing a lowercase letter i
5 Props for certain dancers / Option in a 2016 referendum
6 Option in a 2016 referendum / Word preceding "effect" or "bet"
7 Having few words / Salt
8 Where Budapest is located / Peppermint Patty, to Marcie
9 City where the headquarters of Armani are located / Home ____ (1990 film)
10 With hands on hips / Book after Joel

PENTOMINOES:
* HALF OF THE FINAL ANSWER
* THE OTHER HALF OF THE FINAL ANSWER
* Unable to move
* Burn
* “Don't try to ____ the river.” (Deepak Chopra quote)
* Roman goddess of the hunt
* Famous Michelangelo sculpture
