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 ____ keen / "That hurts!"
2 Fitting together like Russian dolls / Children's card game in which it takes, like, forever for one player to get all the cards
3 America's ____ Top Model / "O Canada", for one
4 Pleasure vehicle of sorts / "Don't ____ the small stuff!"
5 Croc cousin / Dr. ____ and The Electric Mayhem (Muppets band)
6 Something boring / In one's birthday suit
7 Attendant / Musical 2016 animated film
8 Mr. Philbin / Host
9 Mathematician Pascal / Cain's victim
10 Speaks / Actress Falco
