Here's one I've been wondering lately: When car plugs were truncated around 34 in the time crunch, what was actually included in "standard equipment"?
Roger Dobkowitz's Seven Commandments of The Price Is Right:
1. Tape and edit the show as if it were live.
2. Never tell the contestant what to do.
3. Size matters. (The bigger the prize, the better the prize and the bigger the reaction.)
4. All prizes are good.
5. Never do anything on the show that would embarrass a parent with a kid watching.
6. Never put on a prize that would make the show look cheap.
7. Itís the game, stupid! (Itís about the game.)

Whatever you'd get with the car if you purchased the least expensive build that came with no options. Naturally, it varied from model to model -- for example, if a given model of car only came with automatic transmission, then that was part of "standard equipment." But if the car could be purchased with either manual or automatic transmission, then manual would be the "standard."
