Lots of crazy things happen on this episode, which is appropriately aired on the eve of Halloween.

Third try: $19,570 (no new numbers right)

A sound effects gaffe occurs at the end of the game: The buzzer and losing horns play when Bob asks if the price is correct, and then just the buzzer when he checks to see if either of the remaining two numbers are correct.

GP5: Agree Hair Conditioner
GP6: Heet Plus Fuel System Protectant

First pick: Popcorn--$2.29, wins $10
Second pick: Conditioner--$3.19, game over...but then she wins $100 because one of the prices has already been revealed!

One of the GPs already has its price revealed at the beginning of the game: the toothpaste at $1.96.
