Nice show.
The most fun moment was when the girls and the studio audience all sang "Happy Birthday" to Bob, who turned 60 back then and the show was taped on December 12, 1983.

Holly was on temporary leave at this point and not sure who was the girl who stood in for Holly on this show.
I thought it was either Janice Baker of Jim Perry's version of "Card Sharks" or Lacey Pemberton of Bob Eubanks' version of "Card Sharks", not really sure, probably not neither.

One only pricing game played for a Car and an Airplane offered in the showcase, how often does that happen ?

I thought the first showcase was really funny and kinda cute in a way, I liked the bumble bee costume worn by Janice in the showcase, that one was my favorite.
"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.
