...or is the easy part over?

Personally, I would go with 1 next, just because I know it's not gonna be in the shuffleboard price nor the first digit in the Piggy Bank, meaning it has to be either a dime or the last digit in the car. That's better odds than just about anything else on the board, including the zero (which is very likely to be the last digit in the shuffleboard).

Called it.

A 3 or 4 would now be Angela's best bet; the shuffleboard game is now a mortal lock to be $680, so we can forget the 6 altogether, and we know the 1's not gonna be the first digit in the Piggy Bank either. Depending on where the 3 or 4 appear, this could be the Any Number equivalent of a "bunt" that gives her the game... but we'll see.

...And that was the result we didn't want to see. Now it really is a coin-toss between 3 and 1.

If it were me, I'd gamble on the 1, but as we all know, it's not me, so...

Barker's Bargain Bar Carey's Closeout Corner Bargain Game continues our trend of Golden Oldies in the first half:
  1. Samsung 64" plasma HDTV (RR)
  2. Kymco MXU300 ATV (CB)

Based on the prices I see, my gut says the TV is the way to go here (it's probably $2,600 vs. $3,699 or so for the ATV).

It's In the Bag:
  • Hefty zipper bags (13)
  • Kraft Parmesan & Romano grated cheese
  • Rosarita refried beans
  • Mennen Speed Stick deodorant
  • Allegra allergy tablets (30)
  • ArmorAll protectant wipes

After the two obvious ones (refried beans $1.49, allergy relief $18.70) it gets extremely tricky, though based on past experience with deodorant in this game I'm tempted to put the Speed Stick in the $5.19 bag against my better instinct (which would gravitate more towards $2.99).

Showcases: Edith top winner, Donna runner-up.

1. George Gray's Pantomime Quiz (For All You Afficionadoes of Golden Age TV)
  • Ashley 8pc living room group (RR)
  • 6pc board game set
    • Includes: Monopoly, Scrabble, Pictionary, Cranium, Family Charades Compendium, and "one of Drew's favorites," Settlers of Catan

See, now Rachel has to guess what prize George is trying to act out... and after incorrectly guessing "a turkey on a skateboard," she comes up with...
  • KHS 21-speed mens' bicycle (RR)

Lastly, George channels the spirit of Bert Convy and goes Win, Lose, or Draw-style (or I guess it should actually be Pictionary) for the last prize, which despite looking more like the Quaker Oats guy's hat, is of course actually...
  • 2014 Toyota Corolla LE (1.8L, ACVT, backup camera, Bluetooth; CB)

Edith passes; Donna bids $30,000.
(My bid: $26,279)

2. Dancing With the Showcases, with Today's Very Special Guest Star, Cheryl Burke
  • Trip to San Francisco, CA (6n, Marriott San Francisco Marquis)
    • Cable car tour of historic sites
  • Trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina (7n, Palmero Tower)
    • Daily breakfast
    • 1 dinner
    • Private tango lesson for 2
    • Live dinner show
  • 2014 Nissan Versa S+ (1.6L, ACVT; RR)
Edith listens to the Peanut Gallery, most of whom think (with justification) that Donna has gone over, and bids $1.
