I knew he'd let it go too far... ugh. This is not shaping up to be a good day at the races.

  • Gold Bond Ultimate Healing lotion
  • Febreze fabric refresher

Hi

Juice
Pain relief

...and I probably am now, looking at that juice price. Let us see.

And the first half is at least somewhat salvaged with a win in a fairly easy setup (despite my own botching thereof).

Earlier in the show, we had an Isaac... and now we've got an Abraham making an appearance in the row. A bit backwards, perhaps, for Bible scholars, but you just gotta think there's a Jacob coming sooner rather than later.

Ah, it never goes away, does it?

With Elyse having pressed her luck too far, it's Althea who gets to play Safe Crackers:
Trip to Belize (6n, Portofino Beach Resort, daily breakfast, ½d snorkeling excursion; $4,896; AL)

WIN!

And again with the bizarre trip prices! On Tuesday we saw a five-day London trip go for under six grand, yesterday we had six days in N'awlins go for more, and now we've got an island getaway to Belize valued at far less than either of those! At least this time the price of the trip wasn't relevant to gameplay, but still, sheesh!

This setup was a total coin-flip, as Safe Crackers usually is anymore. Not much to say here.

About what I figured when I saw it come out, but I just never know anymore.

...Nope, no Jacob. That would've been cool, though

NOPE
(Car: $20,634; Barbecue grill: $519)

At least she was somewhat logical for that last call, since the first digit of the grill was rather unlikely to be either 2 or 4... but that random Piggy Bank can be a killer sometimes. Meh.
