It's interesting to hear Bob say that the prize at the end of the Golden Road was always at least $10,000, rather than hyping up how much the prize is ("It's worth more than xx thousand dollars!"). I wonder if the show initially stuck any five-digit prize at the end, but only around 1984 or so did they really start offering really expensive prizes at the end, like how it's done today.
Blank Check was absolutely hilarious, I loved how Bob wandered around the stage and showed disdain for the very high check amount.
Also, when I'm watching these older episodes, The Feud has to be one of the best car cues the show ever had.
It's rare to see someone win more than $300 in Money Game, so given the buying power of that amount in 1983, that's a decent chunk of change. However, it's heartbreaking to see a "La Cheapa"/Front 'N Back combo trip up a contestant.
I loved how Holly presented that comeback written on the drawing desk during Trader Bob. That's how you do a joke well on the show, rather than senseless gags with no context or reason like in, say, Season 37.
Clarence probably has the award for most unlikely big winner in the show's history. I loved how Bob recapped on his gameplay during the show at the end before signing off.
