Bob also reveals the price of the candy as $1.69, meaning that if William had kept the mouthwash on the first try, he would've won. It also means that the other $1.39 GP would have to be the antacid.

I think Bob remarks that the prices had never been as high in 5PT as they were in this playing. Id like to throw in that the Cimarron was a uniquely unimpressive, low-end Cadillac.
"Atinale el precio" moment: Contestant Laila has jumped into Marco's arms and taken his microphone.

Laila: "How much do I weigh? Give me your bid."
Marco: "Er...without going over?"
