I keep thinking about it and I wish that Pat's last episode had been a retrospective interspersed with memories and his send off. Vanna's words to Pat on Thursday's episode seemed like the right point at which to leave the show itself behind. Even though we had three great contestants, Friday's main game felt rushed and in some ways incomplete because it was so rushed (nice to give everyone $5k to make up for it, though).

Pat's final speech, while poignant, was derivative of Walter Cronkite's goodbye to CBS Evening News (not that it detracted from it; just something I noticed). I was surprised they didn't have Pat hand off to Ryan there since he's been announced as the host for the better part of the season.

I loved the final bit with Pat and Vanna together where we couldn't hear them talking but could tell Vanna was feeling quite overcome. After working with someone for as long as they've been working together, I'd be pretty moved, too.

The "00000" is a fascinating detail - I'll have to ask Wubb/ComeOnDown98 what he thinks about that, as he knows how eggcrates work.

How long has this been rumored? Do we have anyone around in these circles who saw it when aired? (Maybe I'm quoting someone who did here, but I need coffee.)

The flashing five zeroes? That's not a "rumor" - I saw it when it happened.

Wasn't it more on the Jackpot primetime playing this season, too?

Go to for more info in general.
Fare thee well, Pat Sajak...
May the Power protect you, and best wishes in retirement.

Aside from that truly amazing DSW,

How often do we see That’s Too Much and More or Less in a lineup together? I never noticed before there’s a slight conflict in that they are both giving fake prices for a car and the contestant has to make a decision about it.

All the focus has been on the fabulous DSW bid, which is deserved. But, as a result, the hilarious awkward winning reveal in Squeeze Play is getting overlooked.
Fair point.... weird that the prop didn't work today, but it's hardly the first time it's happened. I wonder if Drew's recent please say hi, stagehand routine is messing things up.

Thanks for that one! With what's been going on lately (including my parents having to make a lot more hospital appointment trips lately and wanting me along for the road trip), I need a break from recaps. Feel free to resume at any time.

People continuing to be dwelling on what happened years ago is rather amusing. There’s way too much trying to read into things without a rational basis.

Um, what? It was an acquisition. They should have precisely what they bought. And how on earth does that have anything to do with enjoyment of a game show?
