Grand Game was EVIL!!!!   I had the olive oil and the toothpaste as the over products.   UGH.    Poor Dakota.   Yeah I too picked the mayo as well.

This has to be the first time they showed George's reaction to the loss.   He couldn't believe it either!

« Last post by mechamind on Yesterday at 11:59:54 PM »
Episode Number: 3994D (02/12/1981)
Airdate: February 12, 1981
Barker's Beauties: Janice, Dian, Holly

Here it comes! Television’s most exciting hour of fantastic prizes! The fabulous, 60-minute Price Is Right!

HOUR POWER!

First Four: Red, Green, Blue, Orange
Microphone Handoff: Janice



1st IUFB - A new sailboat: AMFL Court Sunfish sailboat with fiberglass hull, withstands the elements better, a boat that can be carried on the cartop (Holly)

Also going to the winner is a supply of Pepsodent toothpaste (Holly)

|DONNA|ROSALIE|HARRIET|VALERIE|
|$625|$650|$900|$651|

Actual Retail Price: $1,095!

Harriet is a high school teacher in San Fernando Valley. Why isn't she in school? She's playing hooky. Bob justifies that she's on business...if she wins her pricing game. :oldlol:

Harriet is playing Range Game for a baker's rack, with open top of wrought iron and brass, a counter of solid hardwood that's a large serving area, a curtain base that's an ample space for china (Dian)

The price is between $4600 and $5200.

Harriet stops the range at $4669-$4819. She slammed the button so hard that Bob can only imagine if a kid in her class got her mad.

The actual price is... $4815!

Harriet wins the baker's rack!

By the way, she's clear. They won't be mad, because she won. :P



The next calldown, Douglas, looks like no other we've seen. His shirt says "Big Mean & Ugly" (his nickname "Ox Baker" on the back), and he's bald with a beard and angry looking eyebrows. He's a professional wrestler, and he's probably thrown countless guys out of the ring. He also beats them up when he doesn't win. If he loses here, Bob wants him to pick up the producer and throw him clear through the wall. 8-O

2nd IUFB - A new wall clock: Hamilton Watch Company Regulator clock fashioned of solid oak, featuring 8-day keywind with Westminster chimes (Janice on the Turntable)

|Donna|Rosalie|DOUGLAS|Valerie|

With "the best two looking men" on the stage right now, "Ox" is playing Poker Game for a range, a wicker desk and chair, a stereo, and a Franklin fireplace:
1: Atlanta early American style Franklin fireplace with energy-saving glass door, made of solid cast iron (Dian)
2: Tappan self-cleaning Convectionair gas range designed to save energy, featuring automatic pilotless ignition, automatic digital clock to start and stop the oven automatically (Dian)
3: Aaron Brothers Art Marts handmade desk and chair in white wicker (Holly)
4: Morse Electro Pilot audio tower system with AM-FM stereo tuner, integrated amplifier, record changer, cassette recorder, plus speakers (Holly)

Before we play, Bob asks if "Ox" has wrestled in Springfield, Missouri. Several times, at Shrine Mosque! When Bob was in Drury College, he ran the concessions there when they had wrestling matches! Bob might have seen him there when he was younger. Bob's not so sure about that...

Douglas must build a winning Poker hand with two prizes.

Actual Retail Price: $1,100!

Rosalie is playing Hole in One for a new van: Chevrolet Camp Van Trans 4 with standard equipment, includes power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, auxiliary gas tank, cruise control, power window, heavy-duty shocks, and California emission, a prize worth $14,132 (Dian).

The grocery products are:
1. Box of 8 Crayola Markers
2. Can of Jolly Time popping corn
3. Johnson Wax Complete For All Furniture
4. Can of Campbell's Vegetable Soup (Family Size)
5. Perfect Nails for beautiful nails

Janice accidentally revealed the wax price before Bob got a chance to ask for it. She quickly tried to close it, but the buzzer sounded. Janice got too excited. :rollold:

Rosalie will putt from the fourth line.

Bob gives an inspiration putt... just strong enough, but curving slightly left.

Rosalie putts... to the right, and not quite strong enough to reach the hole.

We have to mark a loss this time. Rosalie will be back for the Showcase Showdown after the break.



Bob acknowledges how much mail he gets from people telling him what he keeps doing wrong when he misses the putt. But those people didn't have to do it on national television, did they?

Valerie is playing Barker's Bargain Bar for trips to New York and Hawaii:

Bob was talking with the audience about how they watch every day, or how they drove 3,000 miles to be on the show. Reginald said he drove 4,000 miles from Chicago, though he clarifies it was actually 3,000. He miscalculated.

5th IUFB - A bar globe: Corella bar table imported from Italy, makes beverages available around the world, with plenty of storage space, and easy to move from place to place (Dian)

Story time:

I went to Friday’s 11:30 show with some friends. We all had noticeable bright orange shirts.

We’ve had variable luck getting into second tapings, but George announced towards the end of the 11:30 show they had spots available for the 2PM show. We didn’t know how many. Right after George drew the final ball for the door prize, we all got up and powerwalked to the exit trying to beat the crowd.

At the end of the 2PM taping, George called us out. “Everybody stay seated, we have one more prize to give away—yeah, that means you in the orange! Thinking we didn’t see you leave early?”

George draws a numbered ball from the hopper. The number belongs to one of the people who was called as a contestant, who is currently backstage. George says, “oh that’s no fun, it has to be somebody who wasn’t called down today,” and draws another ball.

It is me, in the orange.

Do I endorse powerwalking to the door as a strategy? No. Was it really really really funny that immediately after George called us out we got rewarded for doing so? Yes.

Nobody from the 8:00 or 11:45 tapings will be admitted into the 2:30 tapings. The third taping of the day may reuse some prizes from the first two tapings. We were told by Standards and Practices that it would be a fairness issue for people who had seen the prizes so recently to compete against people who were seeing them for the first time. This seems to be standard operating procedure going forward this season.

Just to update gamesurf's pinned thread, since it has been asked in two other places: the 8AM taping is now the  xlx"forbidden"xlx taping. It is what the 2:30 taping was in Season 52. If you go to the 8AM taping, you will not be able to attend either of the later tapings.

We now resume regularly scheduled programming.

What gamesurf is saying is that if you attend the 8 AM show, you can't attend either of the later shows. This is because what they now do is reuse some prizes from the 8 AM show at the 11:30 AM show, and reuse other prizes from the 8 AM show at the 2:30 PM show. But there's no significant (or perhaps even any) overlap between the prizes used for the 11:30 AM and the 2:30 PM shows, so you can attend both of those if space is available.

Thanks.  I added ticket for the 1130 on Tuesday.  Monday and Wednesday I have 8am...no way to do the late show on Wed due to flight home time.  Easiest solutioin is just to COME ON DOWN on Monday!!!!

Yes.  Roger used to take games out of the rotation for a couple months just for the sake of not playing them for a couple of months.

Ah, I didn't know that. Thank you.

Two reasons:

1. If you're not called the first time you go but are called the second time, you may remember prices from the first taping.
2. Even if you're not called at all, if you're vocal enough, you can help contestants on stage with that extra knowledge. As an extreme example, see the episode with the perfect bid on the showcase.

I'm sorry if I'm misunderstanding, but why does recycling prizes forbid you from attending a taping later in the day? You're not trying to be a contestant both times.
