They're perfect for the parent who wants to send a message to their kids that they can't just bring home a bunch of dirty laundry from college!
I stare at LiteBulb88 from the podium and slowly shake my head.

I need to hire more effective security. :-x

My expression then lightens up a bit.

That's not what the coin slot is for. It's because this is a tribute to 1972. I thought that was obvious. It's not like I'm a college student who brings a lot of laundry when I head back home; no sir!  :P

I sigh.

tpir04? Just... just pick already.

I then point to LiteBulb88

And security? Escort this hooligan out of my studio.  :P

Just my two cents...

I am literally laughing soooo hard right now. This game is hilarious! Ever seen a guy have a laugh attack on the turntable? Well, now you have.

Lower, please!

...Oh, I'm sorry, you wanted lower. Let's see...

*   HIGHER
      $158
*

*

The buzz sound reverberates through the studio.

No! Yeesh, that's not a good start. Because if that panel has the bonus, you've already lost. ...But we don't know that, so let's play on! What's next?

*   HIGHER
      $158
*   LINENS
       $95
*

*
Linens, eh? Alright, let's hear about those, George!

Amber brings out a podium with...



George: This reversible Kaleidoscope Twin XL 5-piece bedding comforter set from Aeropostale features a psychedelic, colorful pattern and includes a comforter, standard pillow sham, flat sheet, fitted sheet, and standard pillowcase to light up any bedroom!

Ooooh, very fancy.  :-D The wrong price is $95. Is it higher or lower than that?  :-)

tpir04 wants lower. Even though it didn't work the first time. Will it work for this prize?

*

*   LOWER
       $60
*

*

It will! That's more like it! What's the next prize?

*

*   LOWER
       $60
*   ENCYCLOPEDIA
         $190
*

An encyclopedia set. George, tell us about that... insightful prize!

James, with glasses on, wheels up the encyclopedia set up on a podium.



George: From The World Book Encyclopedia, this 2017 Discovery encyclopedia set features 13 volumes, over 1,000 new and revised articles, and a collection of maps to help you know the most about the world's knowledge!

Mmmmm. Yes. Quite. :-D The wrong price is $190. Is the actual price higher or lower than that?  :-)

Finally going higher, eh? Let's see if it works...

*

*   LOWER
       $60
*   HIGHER
       $234
*

It does! My goodness, you're coming back strong! We've got one more item to go. Let's see what it is...

*

*   LOWER
       $60
*   HIGHER
       $234
*   CURLER
        $30

A curler? Wonder what that is. In any case, let's find out! George?  :-)



George: From Conair, this 1.5" 2-in-1 Curling Hot Air Brush features dual voltage, 1" natural nylon bristles, an aluminum barrel, and 3-position switch!

Oh. That's what a 'curler' is. Fair enough.  :-D So, for the final time: the incorrect price is $30. Is it actually higher or lower?

Let's go for three! Is it higher?

*

*   LOWER
       $60
*   HIGHER
       $234
*   LOWER
        $20

Another loud buzz sounds out across the studio, followed by the audience groaning.

...Uh oh. So now you only have a 50/50 shot of getting the bonus. But hey, it could still be under the linens or the encyclopedia! Let's find out right... now!




...






...I said now.  :P

*   BONUS

*   LOWER
       $60
*   HIGHER
       $234
*


The audience groans.

Awwwwww man! It was all the way back up at the typewriter! tpir04... I'm so sorry. But you do get the sewing machine, linens, and encyclopedia set, so that's not too bad! And you may end up in the showcase later on! Thank you so much for playing and for being a great contestant.  :-)

I shake tpir04's hand, and we go our separate ways for now.

We are 0 for 2, but there's still time to turn it all around! Stay tuned for more, everyone!

Once again, we cut to HeadOn. Apply directly to the forehead. Apply dir-

Aw, phooey. Well, I can patch up my bedsheets with the sewing machine, all while reading about it in the encyclopedia! Works for me.  :P

Unfortunately... we are 0 for 2 at this point. But the show must go on, and there's an empty space in the yellow and/or orange podium. Can you fill that up for me?

George: I sure can, Shock! Hag; no, I mean, the actual user associating with that name... come on down! You're the next contestant on The Price is Right!

Eyyyyy, it's my old brony friend! Good times, good times. Great to see you once again! I can only give you one chance to bid this time, so I hope you'll be able to make good use of it! Now then, what's the next item up for bids?

The turntable revolves to reveal Amber modeling...

George: It's a new dishwasher!



This Stainless Steel GE Profile 24" Dishwasher comes with a hard food disposer, only 42 decibels of sound, 140 water jets, easy-touch, adjustable upper rack with 2 stem safe shelves, 7 wash cycles, and a hidden electronic control panel with an LCD display!

...Only 42 decibels? That's still loud. You'd think they'd be able to get better at sound reduction at this point. Ah well, this is a 1972 tribute, so whatever.  :P

Hag, you're up first for the... moderately soft dishwasher!  :-D
