  • Quotes

    • Ray Combs: You need 105 points. If 105 people said milk, out of a survey of 100 people , this show is illegal, and we're all going to be on a documentary in 20 years.

    • Ray Combs: (in 1998, on succeeding Richard Dawson as host) People say those are big shoes to fill. I don't have to wear his shoes. I've got my own.

    • Ray Combs: I'm real excited about being on CBS and hosting this show. I have been studying all of the great CBS shows. I think I'm prepared, so if you're ready, let's have the first item up for bids.

    • Ray Combs: You know, I've done this show for six years, and this could be the first time that I had a person that actually got no points, and I think it's a damn fine way to go out. I thought I was a loser until you walked up here; you made me feel like a man.

    • Ray Combs: Never get into an argument with a schizophrenic person and say, "Who do you think you are?"

    Ray Combs seemed to be like a really nice guy and it is a shame that he left us way, way, too soon. Suicide isn't the answers as I found out the hard way. And that you hurt a lot of people in the process when you commit suicide. Ray left behind his ex-wife and six children, plus fans of the show that were devestated about this news of his untimely death. He called me one night back when I was in junior high school. I thought that this was a joke. But my mom got me up and I was half-asleep. I remember that night to this very day. Praying and thoughts still with his family! RIP Ray!moreless
