Once again, we rock out to the tune of "Holiday" by Madonna during the closing credits (Dian and Kathleen really get into the dancin' groove).

Definitely a fun show, lots of exciting moments.
The classic clips is always a plus especially the Patricia Bernard in the Bathroom moment, I still laugh til it hurt whenever I see that clip.

Make Your Move was extremely easy, the Car is what basically gave the whole thing away but that was exciting to see and another intreseting factor was the same car music ("The Bean Stalker") was used for both cars in both games.

At that point, Safe Crackers and Switcheroo were still using there original thinking music cues and I think the thinking music cues were changed around about a year after this.

Seeing the Train Depot showcase w/ all four girls participating is a plus and "Chatanooga Choo Choo" (also used on the 1987 record breaking show) was the cue used and I'm not sure how many different cues were there for the train depot back then because I'm hearing there were at least two other cues used from time to time but "Chatanooga Choo Choo" was the best one to me.

Everyone associated w/ "TPiR" back then had plenty to celebrate.
Bob and Janice have worked side by side together for the then 20 years, Dian celebrated then 16 years, Holly was around for then 15 years, Rod entered his then 6th year on the show, and Kathleen was there for then 10 months as she celebrated her one year Anniversary in December of that year.

For that entire week during the closing credit scrolls, "Holiday" by Madonna (three episodes) and "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang (two episodes) were used to help ring in the then 20th year of CBS, which was very exciting because both songs are fun to listen and dance to.

Fun Show Overall !
"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.
