$7,524 is the only thing that makes sense to me, since I don't believe even Mike could find a trip to Singapore for less than six grand these days.

Yeah, I knew that last digit was 7 of course. But if Tracy hadn't done the deer-in-the-headlights she might've had at least one more chance, which is the most frustrating thing about this loss. I thought we'd finally gotten over that...

Audrey provides us with our first Row Bypass of the new season.

  • Kool-Aid Bursts drink bottles
  • "Pardon me, do you have any" Grey Poupon dijon mustard

The flea collar was definitely trouble waiting to happen. But then, that's probably why this was a car-game setup.

Could've gone either way really, but $3,495 was juuuust a bit too high for a 3D TV in my estimation. At least we went out on a high note!

Okay, hands up, everyone who feared the worst when Jason's overbid was revealed first. I know I did; the summer make-goods and their four consecutive DOBs are still far too fresh in my mind. But all's well that ends well!
