Hey, howierules,

Always try to bring up things that made the show you're recapping unique- funny host/contestant dialogue, odd clothing, quirky behavior, strange prizes...if someone said something quotable or reacted to something in an unusual way, we want to know about it! For Kennedy recaps, it would also be good to mention anything Tom did that Bob probably wouldn't do. General thoughts and opinions about the show always help, too. Even though we're not supposed to criticize contestants too harshly around here, after 20 or 30 years, I'd consider their statute of limitations up.
This episode didn't give you much to work with, but if there's a skit showcase, give all the details of what happens in the skit, how the prizes get mentioned, and any funny lines that come up. A lot of the recaps here are sorely lacking on those kinds of details.
Keep 'em coming! We don't get enough retro recaps around here.
"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?"

Here's a few unique moments from this episode:

In the first four contestants intro, Johnny Olson accidentally called Lorraine "Lori," yet Lorraine still "came on down" to Contestants' Row as normal.

Right before Karen was about to win Pick-A-Pair, Tom accidentally said, "If this [the shampoo] is $1.57, you're on your way to Scotland, young man," but it was obvious that Tom should have said, "young lady." (This mistake was not mentioned on-air.)

Johnny Olson was seen on-camera during the contestant calldown before IUFB #3.

After the 2nd showcase was presented, Tom & Robert have this bit of conversation:
Tom: Robert, we found out that you had a birthday a few days ago, and you dropped a remark a moment ago, you said, "The guys at the station will never believe this." What station are you talking about?
Robert: The fire department.
Tom: Oh, you work for the fire department?
Robert: Yes, downtown.
Tom: I haven't asked you this, Robert, but are you a married man?
Robert: No, sir.
Tom: You're not. Did you concentrate on those prizes just now?
Robert: Yes, I did.
Tom: Well, now that you have done that, would you like to give us a bid, Robert?

Then, after the last commercial break, Tom & Karen have this bit of conversation:
Tom: We just found out that Robert is a fireman, and the guys in the audience said, "Well, what about Karen? We want to know about Karen." So, Karen, are you a married lady or not?
Karen: No, I'm single.
Tom: Uh-huh. What do you do for a living?
Karen: I'm a sales rep for a company that makes parchestry street sweepers.
Tom: Is that an office job or are you out on the field?
Karen: A little of both, really.
Tom: All right.

Yeah, there was some time to kill after the pricing games were done. Anyway, I thought this was a great episode with likeable contestants (especially Karen, I was glad to see her win the showcase). Hopefully, I'll be able to do another one in the future when time permits.
