First, the random clangs and whoops play during the prize description, then two dings on the first bid, the clangers on the second, more clangs and whoops on the fourth bid, and delayed buzzes mixed in with the ding and whoops, leading Bob to wonder if either there's a rookie soundman or a raid has happened. Finally, a single buzz, followed by dings, tells Bob that all four players have in fact overbid. In the re-bid, the clangers sound again on the second bid.
