Says like most couples on WWTBAM, they have a game plan (such as a strategy as how to play the game and what to do with the money). In their case, he makes the money and she does what needs to be done with it.



All lifelines are still available.

C. I Love Lucy D. The Dick Van Dyke Show (Otto please leave that title alone!)

$4000- Because of its shape, which of these comfy chairs is sometimes referred to as a "dish chair"?

I heard that person say China D. It looked like Greg didn't hear that and it looked like Meredith did not want to say she heard it as well. I wonder if it had to do with them being on speaker phone and the 'rule' against that.

How could I hear it and they didn't?

Wasn't some version of this a $250K or $500K question on PTBAM? That would have been back when construction first started, so it wouldn't have been in the news as much.

I clearly heard China at the last second of the phone call. Too bad Greg didn't catch that. He'd have $16,000 (and possibly the 50:50).

Nihil obstat® from me.

$2K-Papasan chair is the only one I've never heard of. Use Spock's Rule and go with it.

Otherwise, an easy stack for me.

When I was on the show elwing and I discussed a lot of things, but how to play the game wasn't one of them. All she told me was "don't guess".

OK, time to ATA. I can eliminate two of them (A and D) but the 50/50 would probably leave the two I don't know.

It was a very exciting race.

OK, so he didn't really know. But why didn't he go with his PAF?
