  • It's Match Game - how can it be bad? Not as good as the original, but still an entertaining episode.

  • Quotes (2)

    • Lance: (answering his question from the first round) I can imagine what Kathy is thinking right now, but uh, I'm gonna go with the majority, I'm gonna say "bathing." Ricki: (thinking Lance's answer is horrible) Bathing. Kathy: (scoldingly) Lance.

    • Lance: I'm just happy to be here because, I mean, I like these celebrities more than the old celebrities on Match Game, so uh... Betty White: (sarcastically) Thanks a lot.

    Notes (1)

    • The Viewer Giveaway question for this episode was: The top answer to the Super-Match question WATCH YOUR _____ was... 1: Step 2: Language 3: Weight The correct answer was #1. *Note: "Audience-Match" is incorrectly labeled as "Super-Match"

    Trivia (5)

    • The bonus round, Super Match, is incorrectly referred to as Audience Match, and the Audience Match segment of the Super Match is incorrectly referred to as Super Match, while the Head-to-Head Match retains its true name.

    • The montage clips didn't show the original version of Match Game that aired in the 60's, nor did it show either of the 90's versions of the show. The clips only showed the most popular incarnation of the show with host Gene Rayburn and the regular panelists Richard Dawson, Brett Somers, and Charles Nelson Reilly.

    • At the beginning of the third round, after Kathy had already matched five of six of the panelists, Ricki failed to mention that Kathy only had to match the remaining panelist (Betty White), and some of the other panelists must have been unfamiliar with Match Game rules as they could be seen writing down an answer before Ricki finally mentioned that Kathy only had to match Betty.

    • After a commercial break Ricki announces that the chance for viewers to win the viewer giveaway prize is coming up and that they should have their cell phones ready, but the giveaway question had already been announced before the same commercial break.

    • For almost every round, Ricki tells the stars to get their pencils and get ready to write down their answer, but they're actually markers.
