And with that, you've put the cell phone on your side of the board. You can keep it if you win this game. Bad rolls are now 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, and 11.
Robbie Rist, Betty White, or Ted McGinley: Who has been named "The Grim Reaper of Television" by TVTropes for their historical tendency to join shows after their first and strongest period of production was past?
Well, you rolled a 2. That's a bad roll, but it is a doubles, so you get to roll again. (the dice come back on the Alex Trebek Memorial Junior G-Man Magic Carpet) The dice have come across the Alex Trebek Memorial Junior G-Man Magic Carpet. Roll again.
Congratulations, James, you've won another $5,000 in cash, the second game in the match, and in a moment, you'll be playing the Big Numbers for a quarter of a million dollars. We'll get back to you in a moment.
Vahan, you had the Insurance Marker, and you just got one bad roll too many. I'm sorry we don't have anything for you. We do have some parting gifts for you, and I can tell you about some of them. First, MGM Resorts wants you and a guest to spend a week in a Stay Well room at the MGM Grand Resort and Casino, plus enjoy dinner at one of the fine restaurants and great seats at a David Copperfield show.
And, just for being here, you get a $2,500 shopping spree from Amazon.com, the world's largest marketplace, plus a 5-year subscription to Amazon Prime. Many thanks for being here. Do you have any thoughts before you go?
All right. Now, we're about to get to the Big Numbers, and when we come back...
Voice: (off-camera) Hold it! Hold it! Hold everything! (just then, a handsome man with greying black hair and perfect teeth joins Greg, some in the audience cheer)
Greg: And who are you?
Ted: I'm Ted McGinley. (he flashes his winning smile and makes finger-guns at the camera)
Greg: It's TV's Ted McGinley! (audience cheers) Ted, we were just talking about you, and how you've been called the "Grim Reaper of Television". You cancelled Happy Days.
Ted: That is not true, that is not true. I'll tell you what cancelled Happy Days. First off, Ron Howard left the show. He was the main character. The Fonz was asked to carry the show. There's only so much Fonzie you can stand, am I right? I am here to tell you that, in real life, Henry Winkler was a dyslexic Shakespearean nerd.
Greg: I thought every actor wanted to do Shakespeare.
Ted: That's not true, Greg. Anyways, Happy Days was on its last legs, especially when Joanie and Chachi left for a year or two.
Greg: That is true.
Ted: As far as Dynasty went, who could compete with Dallas? And Married... with Children? The show lasted six or so more years after I joined.
Greg: Right you are.
Ted: MeTV even did an article about me. As far as The Love Boat goes, practically every star in Hollywood had already guest starred on the show, and they had sailed to multiple continents.
Greg: But not Antarctica.
Ted: Who'd want to sail to Antarctica?
Greg: The Love Boat should have done it all the same. James, Vahan, do you have any questions for Mr. McGinley?
Ted: Not at all. We were born a year and a half apart on opposite ends of the country.
Greg: The More You Know. Now, Ted, if you and John C. McGinley were on the same show, what would happen?
Ted: I think the universe would implode.
Greg: I believe you're right. I'll take your word for it, anyway.
Ted: To answer your question, Vahan: Most of my stuff, I never really watch. However, I really did enjoy Happy Days when it started. And to work on a show like that, after being a fan, it was fantastic. I got to meet Marion Ross, who became my mentor and best friend. She took me under her wing, and that's something I'll always be grateful for. (audience cheers)
Greg: Now, Ted, enjoy the rest of the show, but when you get a chance, I'd like you to do us all a favor. There's this show on another network, you see, and it's hosted by an obnoxious guy from Cleveland who is phoning it in. He's been phoning it in for 14 years. Now, on occasion, they have a nighttime version with celebrities. I want you to be a celebrity on that show.
Ted: What's the name of the show?
Greg: The Price is Right at Night.
Ted: So, you want me to ruin that show?
Ted: Not making any promises, but I'll do my best. (all the Drew-haters in the audience cheer, Ted and I shake hands)
Greg: Thank you very much. Ted McGinley, everyone! (audience cheers) When we come back, James will take on the Big Numbers, so stay tuned!

Mandoli: If I'm supposed to get a third shot, then let me have it at the first chance I'm allowed to get it.

gameshowmaniac: now of course the "powers that be" are suggesting a 3rd shot.

Mandoli: Please don't duplicate threads or put something that's already in an AP thread in its own thread. Thank you.

dare2be: Just saw this latest discussion. My wife and son both had 2 days of fever of about 100 and body aches/fatigue on 2nd shot. I just had a little fatigue (felt like a cement mannequin), but no fever. Moderna back in April/May

wildjackmonroe: It's funny; I did all of this major house cleaning and stuff for the week early, expecting I'd be out of it for a couple days after my second vaccine shot, but I didn't have anything else but a sore arm like the first time.
Jul 24, 2021 19:49:52 GMT -5
gameshowmaniac: @mandoli someone I know had pain in the opposite arm that was jabbed. weird

gameshowmaniac: well the dating game killer has finally passed

rewindium: Sore arm and some fatigue but nothing like a fever or other major effects and didn’t have to take any pain relief. Glad to be added to the second dose statistic which today is 62% for my province
Jul 24, 2021 15:07:47 GMT -5
Mandoli: On another note, you might not. My brother didn't have any side effects of shot #2.
Jul 24, 2021 11:32:18 GMT -5
Mandoli: You'll feel it later, like this morning. I had a fever and slept in the day after my second. I begged work to not schedule me for the day after, knowing I wouldn't feel good.
Jul 24, 2021 10:59:23 GMT -5
rewindium: Got the second dose at a mass clinic earlier today, no side effects
