Bob: Would you like to see what you're gonna win ?
Vicky: No.
( the studio audience bursts with laughter )
Bob: You don't want to see what you're gonna win ? Why Not ?
Vicky: Because I'm not gonna get it.
Bob: Well, why not, Vicky ?

Bob: Vicky, you're making me unhappy too ! I want you know, let's show her her prize it's this one !

Coming back from commercial, Bob uncovered the reason on why Vicky was so nervous and so negative...
Bob: She told me something her husband said that might've influenced her, what was he said.
Vicky: You have two chances: slim and none.
( the studio audience bursts with laughter )
Bob: Slim and none, no wonder she was a little negative.

Actual price of Betty's showcase: $2,428
Difference: OVER

Actual price of Vicky's showcase: $2,168
Difference: $68

Vicky has won a total of $5,000 in prizes including a vacation in Tahiti and Bob takes her over to meet Janice and Anitra and then they follow Bob and Vicky over to the
TPiR Department Store to check out those prizes and full credit roll ( YAY ! ).

This is one of my favorite shows from the TPiR DVD collection, it might've been a winless show but it was fun to watch, mainly because of Vicky and her nervousness and the studio audience enjoyed her because everything she said, they responded with a laugh
and she kept me laughing and I was cheering right along with the studio audience when she won both showcases and I already knew she had both showcases before Bob even read the actual price because he was holding the price tag where you can see it on camera.

Full credit roll, what a treat !
I used to love seeing those because I enjoyed seeing the winning contestants with their families and friends, Bob, the models, Johnny O ( and Rod ), celebrating and listening to the theme a little bit longer.  Don't know why they stopped the full credit roll
to begin with, a split screen promoting these worthless primetime programs, not fun.

Fun show overall, despite it being a winless show, the double showcase win is made it fun !  :-D
"Say whatever you want to about me, my artwork, etc, I don't really care.
If you don't want me or even like me, then I'm DAMN sure am not gonna let myself want OR
like YOU !"

^ That's my message to all you haters and people who are negative when it comes to me.
