So I can assume that Clock Game now sits upon Bullseye's base?
Any closer and Bob gives it away.

That's a negative.  Bullseye's base was much less wide than Clock Game's.

That might have been the single easiest playing of Bonus Game ever!

And double Garffs, even in 1972!

Holy...you know, GSN ran this episode.  Can somebody check it and see if that first fake for Bonus Game is right?  That really looks like it could be a mistake in the records.

Yup, that $12 was a fake for $55.
Roger Dobkowitz's Seven Commandments of The Price Is Right:
1. Tape and edit the show as if it were live.
2. Never tell the contestant what to do.
3. Size matters. (The bigger the prize, the better the prize and the bigger the reaction.)
4. All prizes are good.
5. Never do anything on the show that would embarrass a parent with a kid watching.
6. Never put on a prize that would make the show look cheap.
7. Itís the game, stupid! (Itís about the game.)
