Well... everything looks normal today. Perhaps because that date falls on a Sunday this year, we won't get any weirdness this year... well, above and beyond the usual weirdness that goes on during a typical episode, I mean.

That's the good news. The bad news, she's not winning that car. You know it, I know it, and most importantly, Mike Richards knows it. (Prediction: She puts the 7 down for that tens digit, and it's actually a 2.)

Braden's bid is more forgiveable than it seems; it appears he misheard Douglas's bid as "eleven-fifty," and didn't catch the "nine" on the end.

He almost stopped on $17,480, but decided to go one more. This was more painful than usual, considering he actually seemed to have some idea of how this most evil-by-design of car games is supposed to work.

Arrrgh! I did exactly the same thing; that size can of Red Bull actually does go for about $2.69 around here, and margarine usually isn't that cheap unless it's a store brand. I thought she'd nailed it.

Last chance for Braden to avoid the buzzards, and the last chance for all of us to avoid tomato-juice baths... needless to say, we need a turnaround quickly!

Well, at least one thing's going right... two perfectos in a row, making a total of four on the week. Not bad!

Unfortunately, Lisa Marie now finds herself in a must-win situation. She must win Squeeze Play to stave off the impending fumigation:

Not that this was especially difficult... but then again, so was Most Expen$ive (at least if you pay attention to recurring brands). But who cares, we warded off the skunk, and sometimes that's all that matters!

Interesting to note: Jameil's bidding display now has a subtle "shadow" effect on the numbers, but Lisa Marie's does not. Probably just a glitch one way or the other.
