While James Greek is playing his first Winners' Board, I have good news. A few months ago, I reached out to former $ale Lot winner Mark DeCarlo. He said he'd be interested in playing. So, I'd like him to check in, please.
I had also attempted to reach Greg Hopkins, the first Jeopardy! champion, but he said he didn't want to play. So, we're looking for:
Mark DeCarlo James Greek [presuming he doesn't win the Lot] a third player (preferably a new one who hasn't played yet)
Greg: There's one Daily Double hidden in one of these categories.
[THINGS YOU DON'T DISCUSS AT PARTIES]
Things You Don't Discuss At Parties. Hmm, they'll be discussed today. That's followed by...
And Politics. Exactly. After that,
[YOUR MAMA DON'T DANCE...]
Your Mama Don't Dance.
[YOUR DADDY DON'T "ROCK" AND "ROLL"]
And Your Daddy Don't "Rock" and "Roll". "Rock" and "Roll" are in quotation marks. (I walk to my lectern) We drew numbers to see who would start. I drew a "4", here it is. (Greg holds up a card with the number "4" on it) Isn't that a lovely "4", Johnny?
(shot of Johnny at his booth)
Johnny: I wouldn't know, I've seen a lot of "4"s in my time.
Greg: Most of them walking down Hollywood and Vine. Alex, you get to start.
Alex: Let's go with "Sex" for $200.
Greg: And the answer is...
(we don't see the clue, because suddenly, Fall Out Boy appears on stage; for all intents and purposes, they are performing live, but the vocals match the studio version)
Fall Out Boy: (singing) I can move mountains I can work a miracle, work a miracle, oh oh oh I'll keep you like an oath "May nothing but death do us part..."
(The audience and Johnny start dancing in the aisles, and Greg senses he is losing control of his own show)
[Extended Version for Online/On-Demand]
(more dancing, even Alex, Elizabeth, and Uma are getting into it; Greg and Uma re-enact the dance scene from Pulp Fiction [well, not exactly, Uma's moves are closer to Pulp Fiction than Greg's])
Fall Out Boy: (singing) She wants to dance like Uma Thurman Bury me 'til I confess She wants to dance like Uma Thurman And I can’t get you out of my head
The stench, the stench of summer sex And CK eternity, oh, hell, yes Divide me down to the smallest I can be Put your, put your v-v-venom in me
I can move mountains I can work a miracle, work a miracle, oh oh oh I'll keep you like an oath "May nothing but death do us part..."
(We cut to Greg's bedroom, where the radio is blaring "Uma Thurman" by Fall Out Boy. Greg rips off his sleep mask and rolls over waking up.)
Greg: Ughhhhh... damn it! FRIDAY!
FRIDAY: (VO) Yes, boss? Good morning.
Greg: Friday, whose brilliant idea was it to wake me up at 6:30 with Fall Out Boy?
FRIDAY: (VO) You set the alarm for 6:30, I thought you might want something fresh and funky to wake up to. I didn't think AC/DC was your style. (beat) You look upset.
Greg: Yeah, I just had a great dream. I was hosting Jeopardy! and Alex Trebek was a contestant.
FRIDAY: (VO) It had to be a dream.
Greg: Don't I know it?

(the doors open, as I run through to cheers and applause)
Greg: Thank you! Thank you very much, Steve Anderson. Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, welcome once again to $ale of the Century. We have an audience this time, and everyone's been checked for symptoms. We're going to have temperature checks every commercial break. We have redesigned our studio, temporarily. Everybody is socially distant! It's wonderful. And tonight, one of these players will be going with us for two or three weeks of fun at EPCOT Center in beautiful Florida. And hoping to join us there is a man who's a fine champion, won a car on our last show. James Greek! (audience cheers)
Hiya, James. Welcome back. Now, we've had a big week. We gave away the Lot on Wednesday's show, a car yesterday, it's wonderful. Now, should you not win the Lot tonight, you'll be joining us at EPCOT. Have you ever been there? If so, what do you like about it?
Oh, well, I went to EPCOT in 2016, and..... I'm getting apprehensive looks from Disney executives in the audience. Here to introduce the challengers is one of the stars of Dynasty, Elizabeth Gillies!
(cheers and applause, along with a few NBC "yeah-whoos" as she walks out and joins me at my lectern)
Well, hello, Liz.
Liz: Hi, Greg.
Greg: So, how are things going on Dynasty?
Liz: Just great. Sam married a stripper named Scorpio. Carrington Atlantic went to Moldavia, Blake hired Adam as his protégé, but Adam vows to destroy Blake. He's going to do that by arranging an explosion at a Carrington Atlantic oil refinery.
Greg: Now why can't we have shows like that on this network? (audience laughs)
Liz: I really don't know.
Greg: Anyway, why don't you introduce our challengers?
Liz: I'd be glad to. First, he's a piano player from Okay, Oklahoma who won the KFOR Contestant Search. Please welcome Frank Jones. And he's a semi-professional poker player who lives in a nudist colony. From Paradise Lakes, Florida, here's Bob Loblaw.
(cheers and applause)
All right, let's meet our three players. Hiya, Bob. Now, you live in a nudist colony. I suppose you're wearing nothing but your face mask now. What's the hardest thing to do well in the nude?
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.
Jun 26, 2020 5:12:16 GMT -5
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.
