Personally, I think it's straight across, 1-2-3, bikes-computer-chair. OTOH, my mind is mostly gone from lack of sleep lately, so take that as you will...

An inauspcious start—both to the episode and to my daily prognostication. ^^;;;

Presumably Kimberly Griffin is no relation to Peter... S&P would frown on that were it to be the case. ;^)

I'd have a difficult time believing $5,983 for Uruguay, so it's gotta be one of the other two options. Flip a coin, take your pick... just make sure Flipping is involved, if you know what I mean.

  1. I think "Check-Out" for a car was our little price to pay for the win on "Stack the Deck" yesterday.

    1. I disagree; Check-Out has a quite favorable record overall lately, and I certainly proved it was winnable this time with my own efforts. If anything, it was Gas Money that should've fit the "little price to pay" description.

    2. But, it's usually hard, whenever a car's on the line.
