2nd Showcase: Priceless Rescue Team

this is a funny showcase where the rescue team (the girls dressed as the Keystone Cops), try to rescue a lady (Johnny in drag) from the balcony of a burning building. the scene is set to the original Switcheroo music

The team first tries to get the lady to jump onto a rug:

-Area Rug by Janis imports

The lady says no because the carpet is too hard, so the team brings in a daybed:

-Daybed by Sunshine brass

But the lady turns it down, saying the bed is too small, so the team brings in a spa:

-Thermasol Spa

Once again the lady turns them down because she's afraid of water, so the team brings in its last resource, their mini truck!

-Toyota 4X4 pickup

The lady is saved!

Linda bids $12000


$12000 (Linda)
($17858) ARP

$5900 (Denise)
($5921) ARP
$21  [color=00CC00]DSW!![/color]

Denise's total: $26569

"This is Johnny Olson speaking for The Price Is Right, a Mark Goodson/Bill Todman production!"

My estimate for broadcast is late October 1983 because this was a couple of weeks before the Home Viewer Christmas showcase (which was always shown in November) was shown, and in addition this was about a week before the Walk of Fame premiere, which according this site's FAQ, was in the first week of November.

Just one question I can think of right now:  Is Take Two yellow by this point?

The Contestants Row bids marked as "dumb" would only be dumb if they followed the others and were $1 under any of them. The $800 bid in the third one-bid, for example, gives a $20 cushion between Cynthia and Linda, and the price could very well have been within that cushion. (It obviously wasn't, but that's the chance taken.)
