Burton: (VO) Previously on $ale of the Century....
Greg: In total, this number could be worth $1,481,309. Bob has been controlling his breathing for the last three minutes, and the whole audience has been on pins and needles. Minnie..... what is behind.... #14?
[The Cash Jackpot Sign comes back down along with a deluge of balloons and confetti, Minnie hands Bob the "Grundy Cash Suitcase"]
Greg: Bob Verini, you are leaving us with a grand total of....
$1,509,701 in cash and prizes.
Steve: (VO) $ale of the Century stars Greg..... $ale of the Century stars Greg.....Palmer. This is Stev.. WHO STARTED THE FIRE???
[After Steve signs off and Greg's credit disappears from the screen, there's a technical malfunction, as somehow, the car is now on fire. Bob V., Minnie, and Greg quickly vacate as Greg wonders what's going on.]
[We immediately cut to Billy Joel at his piano, surrounded by Steve and several Disney characters from the audience (in this case, Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Max Goof, Brer Fox, Nick Wilde, Jake the kangaroo rat, Elsa, Baymax, Kylo Ren, C-3PO, Powerline, Pain, Panic, Dr. Facilier, Evil Queen, Maleficent and Black Widow). None of them seem to be concerned with the fire. Greg quickly calls the fire department and arms himself with a fire extinguisher, but it's no good. The fire spreads to the rest of the set, as Greg looks on in horror. And soon, the fire hits the gas tank of the car, as the car explodes. The entire studio explodes as fire engulfs the screen.]
[Greg wakes up upset, rips off his sleep mask, and turns on the lamp. He wakes to find he's in his bedroom at home. He also notices there's someone else in his bed. He nudges awake this mystery person, who gets up. It's Bob Newhart.]
(The next morning....)
(We fade in at the former Stark Mansion, now belonging to the new Iron Man.)
Greg: (VO) If you're wondering whose mansion this is, it's mine. Tony left it to me when he killed himself saving the world. It's one of the things he fixed with that finger snap. The next morning went on as usual, until....
(We go inside Greg's kitchen, where we find Bob Newhart making breakfast, trying to figure out Tony's extremely advanced, $18,000 coffee machine.)
Bob: Oh, good, good morning. How do you work this thing?
Greg: (VO) I discovered that some of what had happened the night before wasn't a dream at all. Bob Newhart was in my kitchen.
FRIDAY [voiced by Kerry Condon]: (VO) Yes, boss?
Greg: What is a 70s comedy icon doing in my kitchen?
FRIDAY: (VO) After he used the facilities, he went into another bedroom and went back to sleep. I figured you didn't want me to kick him out. I mean, look at him. (Bob accidentally shoots out some milk) A 90-year-old man trying so hard to stay relevant.
Greg: I have an idea.
(After breakfast, Bob is dressed in a rather conservative suit he borrowed from Tony Stark's wardrobe. He and Greg are both outside.)
Greg: Now, Bob, how did you get here?
Bob: Well, I'm, not really sure, to be quite honest.
Greg: (to himself) Maybe it's Loki pulling tricks on me. (to FRIDAY) Friday, do you have Mr. Newhart's address?
FRIDAY: (VO) I certainly do.
Bob: Who said that? (Bob looks around for the voice)
Greg: That's FRIDAY, the Female Replacement Intelligent Digital Assistant Youth. She's my assistant, my girl Friday as it were. (Bob politely chuckles) Anyway, we've got to get you home. So, we're going to send you back to your address in an Iron Man suit. You're going to be.... "Iron Bob".
Bob: Did, did you say, "Fly"? (Bob looks rather uncomfortable with the idea)
Greg: I can't drive you home. I don't have a car.
Bob: I could always call an Uber, or, or something.
Greg: Nah, don't worry, you'll be fine. Friday, prepare the miniature arc reactor. (a drone flies out and hands the arc reactor to Greg, who approaches Bob and attaches the reactor to Bob's suit) Activate suit Mark 85. (Greg steps back as the components of Iron Man Armor MK LXXXV click together as the rest of the suit forms; now, Bob is Iron Man; he looks at himself, we look inside the Heads-Up Display)
Bob: Whoa.... I am Iron Man.
(back outside) Greg: That's right. Now, relax and leave the flying to Friday. Friday, take him home. (And suddenly, Bob blasts off and starts flying back to Beverly Hills) Well, there he goes. As for me... I believe it's time for me to fly! (Greg activates his bracelet, then stretches out his hand and arm as he activates his brain synapses and the armor forms around him, the 1996 Iron Man theme plays as the armor forms and he blasts off)

(the doors open and the two of us walk out, arm in arm, to the host's lectern)
Greg: Eat your heart out, Bob Goen. Thank you, thank you. Welcome to $ale of the Century, it's Thursday, and as you've noticed, my co-host tonight is Vanna White.
Vanna: I'm smiling on the outside, but on the inside, I'm dead right now. (audience laughs)
Greg: And why's that, Vanna?
Vanna: (a bit pissed off) The only reason I decided to take this gig was because it wasn't my usual job. But your producer and announcer decided to ham it up and break out his Charlie O'Donnell impression. I've seen this show enough to know that you're going to have me turning things. I know you guys are just trying to make me feel at home, but....
Greg: You know what, I like it. I've never seen you this pissed off before at anyone, and it shows a new human emotion. We are peeling back the onion that is Vanna White. Go ahead and punch Steve in the arm. (So, Vanna walks over, and starts punching Steve in the arm)
Steve: OW! OW! OW! What'd I do?
Greg: Apparently, a bad Charlie O impression, Sir Ham Hock of Havarti. Now, Vanna, while you're busy punching Steve in the arm, let me explain to the audience what's going on here. On our last show, Bob Verini, he of Jeopardy! fame, won the Lot on his very first night. Over $1.5 million in cash and prizes.
Vanna: And I still say Jeopardy! could use a good hostess!
Greg: (to Vanna) The only problem is, you can't reach that high. (audience laughs, to audience) We're all delighted for Bob and will see him tonight in primetime in a special one-hour $uper $ale which will have him face off against Marc Enyedy. That means we have three new contestants. (to Vanna) Are you done, Vanna?
(Vanna lays one more good punch to Steve's arm, then rejoins me) Vanna: Yes, for now.
Greg: Note to self, don't get on Vanna White's bad side. Anyway, would you please introduce the challengers?
Vanna: Oh, this is too much. (trying to keep it together, bursting out laughing at this point) First, he's a 7th grader whose best subjects are PE and Computers, and one of the youngest contestants we've ever had on the show. From Livingston, New Jersey, please welcome Danny Margulis. Next, he's an unemployed person whose interests include pretty girls. From Elba, Alabama, James Greek. And finally, he's a cleaner whose hobbies include couponing and game shows. From Heritage, North Carolina, here's Ben Hernandez. (audience cheers)
Greg: Well, I'm glad somebody here has a sense of humor. At least you're not so dead inside anymore. You know, Vanna, most game show hostesses aspire to be you. (Vanna just nods) Anyway, hiya, Ben. Ben Hernandez, from Heritage, North Carolina. Won our WRAL contestant search. Your hobbies include couponing. What's the most you've ever gotten for the least amount of money?
Welcome to Game Show Paradise. Keep the posts at a PG rating. NO SPOILERS. Thanks, and enjoy your stay!
gameshowmaniac: this year has been pure feces

jean74: Can't believe this year has flown by fast? Really a lot has happened. All years must go by fast and before you know it they end asap.
Jun 28, 2020 7:14:22 GMT -5
phimat37: Yes, basically thats what I meant to say. But that's well said, I agree.
Jun 26, 2020 15:23:19 GMT -5
Mandoli: Can we all agree that political talk doesn't even belong on the forum PERIOD? Talk about what the forum topic is about, and let's not verbally shit on people.
Jun 26, 2020 15:18:38 GMT -5
phimat37: I don't care what you are when you come here, just keep the politics out of it. There are probably dozens of political message boards and social media groups out there. This is a game show message board and the shout box should be fun and friendly.
Jun 26, 2020 10:52:22 GMT -5
phimat37: Yeah, um, I want whats best for the country and the world too. (Just look at my Twitter feed) A shout box on a game show message board is not the place to do it. Political discussion just asks for trouble. Take to PM or social media if you want to debate
Jun 26, 2020 10:49:33 GMT -5
aaaa: And I'm a Dumb White Boy.

palmer7: Just putting this out here, I'm a Republican.
Jun 25, 2020 23:48:13 GMT -5
Mandoli: If I have to clean up after a fight with potential name calling, do you think I'm going to be happy?
Jun 25, 2020 20:55:02 GMT -5
S_SweepFan3: I'm sorry for wanting the best for this country and this world.
Jun 25, 2020 18:49:40 GMT -5
Mandoli: I agree with phimat37. No politics talk. We're not here to talk about which party is better.
Jun 11, 2020 12:03:52 GMT -5
aaaa: Trump had no involvement in the production of Trump Card in 1990, it was just taped at his casino, the former Trump Castle in Atlantic City. Fiedler and Berlin were the producers, with Bill Carruthers directing at least some episodes.
Jun 10, 2020 14:07:44 GMT -5
phimat37: Maybe you'll see a Biden ad on GSN as well. But I think we should keep the shout box as nonpolitical as possible.
Jun 10, 2020 12:52:24 GMT -5
phimat37: It's not that GSN is "supporting" him. I've seen sports channels run his ads in the past, even the "mainstream" news channels like CNN and MSNBC run them, or at least I've seen them on MSNBC. They have a decision not to air them as we've seen
Jun 10, 2020 12:51:43 GMT -5
S_SweepFan3: I'm really disappointed that GSN keeps airing Donald Trump ads. Why are they supporting this poor excuse for a human being? This country needs to move on from Trump, especially given everything that's happened with him as president.

ppaulson93: The firework game I'm thinking of wasn't FizGig. I have no idea what it could've been! I know I always used to call it "pyroteknica" but I think I was joking and that wasn't likely wasn't the real name. Thanks for the help though!
May 27, 2020 13:59:44 GMT -5
phimat37: Clicked on the link for FizGig, that takes me back lol

Mandoli: Happy Memorial Day! It's a little different this year, because of social distancing. I know, do the best you can under these circumstances.
May 25, 2020 12:53:31 GMT -5
palmer7: Bob, please go to the thread.
