The car in money Game is a Firenza, the cheapest Oldsmobile! (Although at that price, it had to have been pretty nicely kitted out.)

"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?"
