It does say "Curtiss III" on his name tag, and name tags are what I go by, so... Also, we're back to the tapings where Drew's voice was a bit dodgy.

Leslie has one of those "Keep Calm and Fill-In-The-Blank" T-shirts; in her case, "Win the Showcase." I wonder how "calm" she'll keep when she looks down and realizes she's standing on a little green $... Yep, it's Pay the Rent:

  • Ace self-adhering elastic bandage (2" width)
  • Monster energy drink (16 oz)
  • Orville Redenbacher's Salty & Sweet Kettle Korn microwave popcorn (3-82.3g bags)
  • Campbell's condensed chicken noodle soup (10¾ oz... George: "Drew, this would be perfect for you right now...")
  • Wonderful pistachios (8 oz)
  • Puffs Plus facial tissues (124 ct)

My Arrangement:
Mailbox: Bandage
1st Floor: Popcorn + Soup
2nd Floor: Tissues + Energy drink
Attic: Pistachios

...Mind you, I'm not confident about that... this is actually really tough, and finding the most expensive item on the table isn't the slam-dunk it normally is. Let's just see how much Leslie can get away with here...

(GOS pitches, RR catches... it's Opening Day, why not?)

Soup
99¢

$1,000

Tissues

Win $5,000
Energy drink

Pistachios
$5.49
$10,000
$7.48

Bandage
$6.99

$100,000
$6.99

Solution #1:
Mailbox: Tissues = $3.29
1st Floor: Popcorn ($3.99) + Energy drink ($1.99) = $5.98
2nd Floor: Pistachios ($5.49) + Soup (99¢) = $6.48
Attic: Bandage = $6.99

Solution #2:
Mailbox: Popcorn = $3.99
1st Floor: Tissues ($3.29) + Energy drink ($1.99) = $5.28
2nd Floor: Pistachios ($5.49) + Soup (99¢) = $6.48
Attic: Bandage = $6.99

How I Did:
Mailbox: Bandage = $6.99
1st Floor: Popcorn ($3.99) + Soup (99¢) = $4.98
2nd Floor: Tissues ($3.29) + Energy drink ($1.99) = $5.28
Attic: Pistachios = $5.49

As I said, a tough setup. >_< I swear, I thought the bandage was only about three bucks or so. And it hurts because Leslie could've actually had the ten grand, which I was a bit iffy on.

  1. $21,960 was also the price of the Sonata Manuela accidentally gave away in Five Price Tags on this past Thursday's episode.
