No-brainer this time, for me anyway; TVs more often than not end in -99 or -00. Leave 'em be.

Hi-Lo for a car:
2013 Honda Fit (AT, 1.5L, vehicle stability assist; $16,225; RR)

This gives me a chance to wonder about something. Naturally, we see this all the time -- "normal" Pricing Games being occasionally played for cars. But what about the inverse of that? Would you, as a fan, like to see the show use some of the lesser-played car games for standard prizes, reverting them to their old four-digit rules in the process? I mean games such as Dice Game, Pathfinder, maybe even Card Game if we ever get it back on active duty. Do you think something like that might work? Let me know your opinion in the comments.

Anyway, onward and upward:
  • Pine Bros. Softish throat drops
  • Rockstar energy drink (4pk)
  • Land O Lakes mild cheddar cheese
  • Francesco Rinaldi pasta sauce
  • Unisom SleepTabs sleep aid
  • Aspercreme pain relieving creme

Gut instinct says the Rockstar, the Unisom, and the Aspercreme -- the latter even though it's getting to be a trap in games like this.

Only, I would've gone with the throat drops as my backup in case the Asperceme didn't pan out. >_< I forgot how expensive brand-name cheese can be.

If ever there was a time for this show to play the card that's never been played (and have the price be the first possibility in line), this would be it at $6,159. However, I'm going to go with $6,249 as my pick. I just think Mike's still in lowball mode when it comes to trips.

...Um... did Margaret just do the V-behind-the-head gag on Drew? ^^;;

(Punch #2: $1,000)

Remember the Fudge Rule for this game -- finishing up with $10,000 counts as a win in my book, even if it's on a bailout.

Kirk is a Marine, and I have no issues with any Marine. (A lesson I learned the hard way, many years ago...) But, Marine or no, he's still staring down the barrel of an exile to Leftover Island. Can he turn it around?

So far, so good. Unless he completely bobbles the thousands digit and thinks that's actually a $27,000 car, we're good for a minimum of two more chances at it.

Just keep whittling down the odds... all it does is get easier. To illustrate, we've managed to improve the odds in two turns from a nasty 719-1 against to a comparatively player-friendly 23-1 against.
