Great episode once again, one that I've seen a number of times.

I don't know if the 20-30-40 secret strategy for Cliffhangers was in use at this point, but it wouldn't have worked on this episode's playing. Consider:

$20 guess on a $40 prize 20 steps.
$30 guess on a $29 prize 1 step, stop at 21.
$40 guess on a $32 prize 8 steps and a loss.

As it was, Debra had some good fortune on her guess for the smoke alarm, but her guess on the second item (the waffler) basically was the game. She played well, but this was in essence a tough playing.
