18:48 The cue used for Showcase #2 was part of the same package that also includes the classic Race Game and Switcheroo cues.

Don't miss the mini-blooper at the end of Lucky Seven, and that was quite some drama there during the final one bid!

By this point, the opening title animation consisting of four zoom outs that would be used until the 1985 part of Season 13 had been used by this point, even though you can see a hint of the old style on the final zoom. Another episode that aired ten days before this also features a rough form of this animation, but does feature a couple of zoom-ins, indicating that the transition from the previous rapid zoom ins/outs wasn't quite fully settled down yet. Speaking of Lucky Seven, the stripes behind the numbers have been removed by this point, moving that up by seven months.

I love the Lucky 7 blooper, because it never makes the highlight reels, and also because of how it goes apparently unnoticed by Bob as they cut to commercial.

What happened, in small font for people who donīt want to be spoiled: After Lucky 7 ends in a loss and Bob is throwing to commercial, the remaining door tries to open to show the last number. After getting stuck several times, it begins to open very slowly, and the number behind the door begins to fall out just as the camera pans away from it.
"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?"
