The last stand for a few elements of the show are featured here...and there is no Dian on this episode. Also, Rod is seen in a multi-colored jacket, which he would do before switching over to sequined ones for the remainder of his career.

First Four: Delmar, Nancy, Bettye, Keith

IUFB 1: Exercise Equipment
Delmar: $2500
Nancy: $1150
Bettye: $1200
Keith: $1250*
ARP: $1695

PG1: Money Game--Played for a Toyota Truck
First pick: 75 (front of truck)
Second pick: 39 (Wins $39)
Third pick: 41 (Wins $80)
Fourth pick: 58 (back of truck)

Second Calldown: Allen

IUFB 2: Sofa (Winner also receives supply of light bulbs)
Allen: $750
Delmar: $850
Nancy: $1100
Bettye: $1101*
ARP: $1129

PG2: Most Expensive--Played for a Grandfather Clock, Motorcycle and Hutch
Bettye picks #1
Price of #2: $1949
Price of #3: $910

Third Calldown: Gary

IUFB 3: 2 Guitars

GP1: Handi-Wipes
GP2: Hershey's Syrup

GP4: Beer Nuts
GP5: Margarine

First purchase: 6 Stove Tops ($1.39 x 6 =$8.34)

Yes, even with the original $6.75-$7 range, there were wipeouts on Grocery Game. I think this is an even bigger problem with the current $20-$21 range, which will be implemented less than 11 months afterwards.

Nancy: .25+.85=OVER
Bettye: .35+.60=.95
Keith: .55+.15=.70
Bettye is going to the Showcase!

The ticket plug is still done before the first SCSD, there are still pink dollar signs on the Big Wheel, and Dig We Must ends both SCSDs, none of which will be the case a year from now. However, the third element will return during the midway part of Season 37, the show's second with Drew as host, and the Big Wheel will have two large silver Pricedown dollar signs on it; it'll even use a background similar to the 1979-88 design to complement said dollar signs during its short "Purple Wheel" phase.

Fourth Calldown: John

IUFB 4: Cellular Telephone
John: $3000
Gary: $750
Allen: $2000

As evidenced by today's closing, Bob's sign-off does not include the spay/neuter part on each episode, but this will soon change, and continue well into the Drew era.
