This time, we have $693 from geniusinmath...

DING!

...$649 from tpir04...

DING!

...$699 from 123123123...

DING!

...and $599 from Archviler.

DING!



I don't hear any buzzer this time, so let me tell you what the actual retail price is. It's $650, and tpir04 wins!

DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING!

(Walking 2007)

(cheers and applause)

You were just $1 away from a perfect bid, but here you are, tpir04, up on stage with a chance to win this!



GEORGE: It's a new car! (Manuela models it in Door #3) (MDS Car Cue) (cheers and applause) It's the 2019 Honda Civic LX Sedan. Features a 2.0-liter engine, six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. This is the Honda Civic!

Thanks, Manuela! Ready to give this car away, Rachel?

RACHEL: Yes, you know I am! Good luck, tpir04!



The game is called Gridlock! You see all those cars bunched up in the slow lane? Your objective is to get two of them into the fast lane, which is one of the first three, and one of the last three. Those cars represent the possible numbers in the price of the car, and you must pick the right car from each group. You can make one mistake and keep on playing, but a second mistake will end the game right then and there. Let's start with this white car, which has the first number in the price of the car.

DING!

It's 2. Now one of the blue cars has the next two numbers in the price. Do you believe that it's 29, 52 or 76?

My favorite game. Oh joy. I just HAD to pick this IUFB to win, didn't I?  :roll:

For what it's worth, I'll say 29.

Very well then, you're going with 29. Let's drop that into the fast lane...

(turn signal clicks)



...and bring them up. $22,900, is that right?

DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING!

(car engine revs)

(applause)



Yes, you got the first three numbers in the price, so you have two chances to find the last two, which are among these three orange cars. Are they 34, 61 or 79?

To save time, I'll give both guesses: 61, then 34, in that order.

Well, since you gave both guesses at the same time, I'll check 61 first. Drop it into the fast lane.

(turn signal clicks)



Bring them up, and you have a price of $22,961; is that right?

BUZZ!

(tires squeal)

No, but you get a second chance, and with that second chance, your next guess is 34. Let's drop that into the fast lane...

(turn signal clicks)



...and bring them up. Now you must be right this time, or no car for you. $22,934, are you a winner?

BUZZ!/Losing Horns

(tires squeal)



Oh no, it was $22,979. But you won't have to wait any longer, because we're going to spin the wheel next.

(applause)

We'll have the first Showcase Showdown after these messages.

Welcome back to The Price is Right! We have our three spinners ready to spin the famous Big Wheel. If you get one dollar in one spin or a combination of two spins, you get $1,000 and a Bonus Spin. If the Bonus Spin lands on one of the two green sections, you win $10,000 more, but if it lands on the dollar, then you win $25,000 more for a total of $26,000! And the one of you three who is nearest to a dollar without going over will be in the Showcase at the end of the show.

SPINNING ORDER:
tpir04 ($650)
wpghi5 ($1,099)
tpiradam ($6,197)

The spinning procedures are the same as the last time: Each of you will give me three numbers from 1 to 20: two for your regular spins, and one for the Bonus Spin or Spin-Off if you should get it. Also tell me your minimum stopping score. Good luck to all three of you!
