    Episode 3
    The original deal-maker himself, Monty Hall, make a cameo appearance for the third episode. He dealed with a contestant who, in 1976, lost a show-record three cars in one episode! More on that later. The recurring deal this time, played several times throughout the show, had current dealer Billy Bush asking contestants to choose from two envelopes, one which held either $100 and a prize or $500; the other one containing an amount that had either one less or one more zero in it. Whatever envelope the contestant chose, Billy first revealed the one having the $100 and prize or $500 and asked if they wanted to trade the "sure thing" for the unknown. Whatever the contestant chose, they got. The first time, Kimberly (dressed as a gypsy) chose the blue envelope, which had $500 in it. She traded for Billy's taupe envelope and won $5,000! * Deal 1 -- In this deal, Billy announced that he would pay a contestant a certain amount per pound for the item concealed behind the audience box; or they could take what was behind the curtain, the only clue given being that it weight a certain amount. The deal went thusly: -- Chris (dressed like he was dancing at a discotecque) was offered $5 per pound for the mystery item in the audience box, or a 1,000-pound prize behind the curtain. Chris chooses the curtain. The audience box reveals Vance dressed as a 320-pound sumo wrestler, meaning Chris gave up $1,600 ... for a rowboat that had run aground (along with some seaweed). -- Fred (a cowboy) could take $10 per pound for the mystery audience box item or the curtain concealing a 2,000-pound item. Fred follows Chris' lead and takes the curtain, giving up not one but two sumo wrestlers (Vance and some other actor) whose combined weight was said to be 660 pounds. Instead of $6,600, Fred went away with an SUV ... a squished utility vehicle! --Lauren (dressed like she could have auditioned for "That 70s Show") tries to salvage this deal, where she could take a curtain whose prize paid off at $20 per pound, or the audience gift box which had 75 pounds. Alas, Lauren also chooses the curtain. She passes up 75 pounds (as in UK pounds), which translated into a trip to England (worth $4,350). Lauren was stuck with 12 pounds of fish, worth $240 (meaning she fared a little better, but not much). * Deal 2 -- Jason (an Elvis impersonator) and Sebastian (drressed a la the Austrailian outback) in a football-themed deal. The deal was controlled by the contestant who came closer to guessing how many cross-stictches there were in a regulation NFL football. Sebastian correctly guessed there were fewer than 12 cross-stitches (Jason's guess); there are eight. Sebastian could take a Dominos ham and pineapple pizza (with a prize concealed beneath it) or pass it to Jason and take the curtain. Sebastian gives the pizza to Jason and opts for the curtain. Jason can keep the pizza and the unknown prize or take a sure $700. Jason takes the $700, only to pass up a trip to Hawaii (worth $3,640). Sebastian, meanwhile, wins a recliner and 42-inch flat-screen plasma color TV (worth $7,150). But, as we well know by now, this deal ain't over yet! A pre-taped video of Jerry Rice (of the Super Bowl runners-up Oakland Raiders) offers Sebastian a chance to pass up the TV and recliner for "a behind-the-scenes NFL football experience." Sebastian declines and keeps his TV and recliner, and wisely so ... all he would have won is a one-day spot on the Raiders' scrimmage squad (ergo, a tackling dummy). Perhaps that prize would be good for a dyed-in-the-wool NFL fantasy camp participant (and the NFL would have had to pay Sebastian as well), but given the foul mood the Raiders are likely still in, Sebastian made the right move! * Recurring deal time again, where this time, a pretty girl named Angie (dressed in a colorful turtleneck and a scarf, perhaps as a skiier) chooses the green envelope. Billy reveals his to contain the $500, and Angie can trade or keep hers. She keeps hers and wins just $50. * Deal 3 -- Kel and Niki (a recently married couple, she's dressed as a portable TV, he's portraying a remote control) could win a 2003 BMW Mini Cooper 2 dr. coupe (worth $23,325). The couple participate in a memory-type game where -- to win the car and the prizes -- they had to guess, in reverse order, six prizes introduced by Dr. Gadget. Those prizes, in the introduced order, are: -- Electric toothbrush ($50) -- Web TV ($3,495) -- George Foreman roaster ($120) -- Juiceman smoothie machine ($299) -- Ultra-convection oven (approx. $250, value was unstated) -- $1,000 cash. Kel must guess the prizes, and Niki decides if they will continue (each time risking their accumulated winnings) or stop; an incorrect guess stops the game and bankrupts the couple. Kel does well for the first two, but then fumbles the car and prizes away when he blurts out the Web TV (at first he struggled to even make a guess, and only afterward did he know he had guessed wrong). The couple get to keep the $1,000 as a consolation gift, however. * Deal 4 -- Kayte (a majorette, and yes, that's the right spelling) can win a $17,000-plus prize package by playing a "Spin the Bottle"-type game. The prizes include: -- A trip to China ($3,250). -- Gateway computer and one-year AOL service ($2,600) -- Snowboards ($4,000) -- Maid Service for a Year ($5,200; Vance dressed as a maid) -- Outdoor pool table ($3,200; Vance models said item) -- Mystery cash. Kayte spins the "bottle" (which serves as the pointer on the roulette wheel); whereever the bottle lands, that's what she wins. But each time she lands on a space, that prize is removed and a "zonk" space appears. Meaning, on subsequent spins, she faces increased odds that she could land on a "zonk" space, thus losing everything she had won to that point. Her run goes thusly: -- Spin 1: Lands on the snowboards. Continues -- Spin 2: Lands on pool table. Continues. -- Spin 3: Lands on "zonk," ending the game. As a consolation, Kayte can spin again; if it lands on Mystery Cash, she wins the unknown amount. By God, she does and wins $5,000! * Deal 5 -- The highlight deal of the night. To promote the deal, Billy shows a 1976 clip of LMaD contestant Karen Hollingshead, who passed up three new cars in one show (all Chevrolets -- a Vega Estate wagon, a Camaro sport coupe and a Chevette hatchback) en route to a measley (by comparison) $800. Karen (now of Columbus, Ohio) is re-introduced to the crowd; like in 1976, she's dressed as a cop. Also introduced: original Deal host Monty Hall! Monty offers Karen $800 or one of two curtains (Nos. 1 and 3). She takes Curtain No. 3, giving up $800 and ... would you believe it ... a 2003 Madza 6 sedan (worth $22,325). Billy doubles over in laughter as Karen LOSES HER FOURTH CAR on LMaD. But guess what? Karen sticks with Curtain No. 3 (passing up a last chance $800) for ... you'll never guess ... L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D Keep scrolling ... L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D Boy, is this good or what ... L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D Scroll just little ways further (I tell you, you'll never believe it) L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D L M A D drumroll please ... L M A D L M A D L M A D A WRECKED 1976 CHEVROLET CAMARO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Billy has fallen down laughing by this point. Alas, Karen's a great sport and Monty lets her keep the $800, plus gives her an extra $500 for $1,300 total! A great deal, to be sure. * The final recurring deal is played, where Ace (a sailor) takes the envelope containing $100 and a slip of paper representing a Gateway computer). He can keep it or take Billy's envelope containing either $1 or $10,000. Ace trades ... himself into $10,000! * Big Deal of the Night, worth $51,099. Ace (soon to be married; his fiancee was with him) keeps his $10,000. Sebastian and Kimberly trade their prizes in to go for the Big Deal. Sebastian chooses Door 1, Kimberly chooses Door 3. Nobody takes Door 2, which conceals a trip to Ireland and cash, worth $20,760. Kimberly trades into a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer and a 13-karat diamond and gold ring (from ShopNBC.com) worth $11,399. Meaning Sebastian wins the Big Deal!!! He takes home a Vespa motor scooter, trips to Italy and Germany, a 2003 Mercedes C230 coupe and $7,500 gas credit ... all worth $51,099!!!moreless

    Episode 2
    * Deal 1 -- In the opening deal, Bush chose a man named Steven (LNU), who had a hard-boiled egg in his possession. Steven was offered an eventual $1,500 for the egg, or he could take what was behind the curtain. Steven chose the curtain, which concealed a Honda personal watercraft worth $10,800. * Deal 2 -- Two unknowns (prize or cash). Bush chose Brian, David and Robin (a pretty blonde dressed as a housemaid). The deal went thusly: -- Brian could take either the curtain (which contained "land transportation") or an envelope containing an unannounced sum of cash. Brian took the envelope, which contained $2,500. Behind the curtain ... Vance (wearing a sombrero) riding a donkey! Vance: "Does this hat make my ass look big?" -- David was offered either sea transportation or an envelope containing an unannounces sum of cash. He passed up $150 for luggage and a Caribbean cruise worth $8,970. -- Robin was offered a curtain concealing either one of the two previous prizes or an envelope containing one of the two cash amounts. Robin did not fare as well as Brian or David; she chose the curtain which concealed the donkey. Yup, she should have taken the envelope which had $2,500 inside! * Deal 3 -- Jonathan was asked to throw a ball, and would be paid $10 for each 1 m.p.h. he could throw it. Or, he could take the unknown item inside the box (which had something to do with the nightlife). Poor Jonathan would have been a loser either way -- he badly misthrew the ball (it hit the top of the large screen and riccocheted into the studio), and the box had a cage full of bats. * Deal 4 -- Newlyweds Paul and Ashley could win a 2003 Jeep Wrangler SE (worth $19,875) if they correctly chose which purse held the keys to the Jeep. We're introduced to Ellie, a chimp wearing a green turtleneck sweater and a black hat. Billy puts the keys inside Ellie's pocketbook, and Ellie is taken backstage. Then, Ellie comes out ... uh, which one is Ellie? Three chimps, identically dressed and each bearing a pocketbook, come out; it was up to Paul and Ashley to decide which Ellie had the pocketbook with the keys. They chose the center chimp. After Billy reveals the contents of the right chimp's pocketbook (a photo of Vance inside) came the moment of truth -- and the center chimp's pocketbook had ... the keys! Paul and Ashley won. The left chimp's pocketbook, BTW, held a banana inside. * Deal 5 -- Vincent (dressed like a nerd and definitely playing the part) is given an ATM card and invited to the LMaD ATM machine. He can continue to withdraw cash, stopping at any time or risking his winnings on the chance that a red "BUST" slip would come out, bankrupting the contestant. The deal went thusly: --Draw 1: $500. Continues. --Draw 2: $800 (total $1,300). Continues. --Draw 3: $20 (total $1,320). Continues. --Draw 4: $100 (total $1,420). Continues. --Draw 5: $1,000 (total $2,420). Continues. --Draw 6: $50 (total $2,470). At this point, Vincent (who has gone "ca-ching!" every time Billy pushes the ATM button to reveal the next cash prize) is offered the chance to quit with his winnings, spend it on an unknown hidden behind the curtain or continue drawing from the ATM. That should have been a clue to Vincent, but he wanted to go back to the ATM (guess he liked saying "ca-ching!"). There was no more money this time; just the "BUST" slip. Vincent passed up a 50-inch color plasma flat screen TV worth $13,000. At least Vince was a good sport, and one of the great players. --Deal 6: Wearing money. David, Danny and Orin are invited to play. In turn, Vance and two of the models come out wearing trenchcoats concealing various clothing items with dollar bills attached. Each model showed a bill that gave a clue. The deal went thusly. -- Orin can choose the brunette female model's "money" attire or the curtain; the model showed a $1 bill. Orin chose the curtain and won a home theater system (a color TV, a DVD player and an MP3 player) worth $2,000. The model's dress was made of 600 $1 bills, good for $600. -- David could choose Vance's cash attire (he showed a $10 bill) or the home theater system. David chose Vance's clothing, and won $6,000 as a result (a tank top made of 600 $10 bills). -- Danny could take the home theater system or the sexy blonde model's clothing. She showed a $20 bill. Danny preferred sex appeal and that was a bad thing this time; she wore a bikini with three $20 bills attached, good for $60. * Deal 7 -- Roderick and Masherri (sp.?) participate in a pitcher's duel with Pittsburgh Pirates pitching gem Matt Hurges. Masherri had to guess who would throw faster -- Hurges with his off hand, or her husband Roderick, with a correct guess worth $2,500. Roderick threw 42 m.p.h. (not that bad), while Matt threw 29 m.p.h. Masherri chose Hurges; too bad. * Deal 8 -- Aaron played a Fear Factor-type game. Aaron (dressed as a Hawaiian and sounding very nasally) was shown three prizes -- a notebook computer, a trip to Las Vegas and a new car ... the 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle). Aaron -- who was escorted to a table with six holes (two per prize) -- had to decide whether the correct price for each prize was higher or lower than the announced value. Then, he had to stick his hand in the appropriate hole, and whatever he pulled out would announce whether he won that prize. He could quit at any time or risk it on the chance he had guessed incorrectly with the next prize. The deal went as such: --Computer (announced at $799) -- He guessed higher. If correct, he'd pull out a computer mouse; if not, he'd stick his hand in a cage containing live mice. He was correct. --Las Vegas (announced at $2,600) -- He guessed lower. If correct, he'd pull out dice; if not, he would stick his hand in a cage containing snakes. He guessed right. --Car (announced at $19,790) -- He guessed lower. If correct, he'd pull out the keys; if not, a bunch of larvae would be swarming all over his hand. Not this time; he pulled out the keys and won everything! * The Big Deal of the Night was worth $50,992. Steven and David gave back their prizes to go for the Big Deal. Steven chooses Door 2, while David goes for Door 1. --Door 3 (which nobody chose) concealed an Elvis Presley prize package -- Elvis memorabilia; a trip to Memphis, Tenn. (and touring the various sites, including Graceland); and a mint-condition pink 1959 Cadillac Coupe DeVille hardtop sedan. Total value: $23,461. -- Door 2 -- Steven won a trip to Jamacia, a Bushnel optical gift package (a telescope, binoculars, night vision binoculars and a range finder) and $2,500 cash. Total value: $10,539 (so he went down a couple hundred dollars, but Steven wasn't complaining). -- Door 1 -- David went home with the Big Deal. His package included a 30-pc. cookware set; a new General Electric kitchen (with a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, a gas range with overhead microwave oven, a wall oven, a dishwasher and trash compactor); and a European vacation (where he could take cooking lessons). With an additional $11,000 spending money, the total value of the deal was worth $50,992!moreless

    Episode 1
    Deal 1 -- Three female contestants were paired with one of three men, each wearing a different outfit (a Scottish kilt, a toga and a grass skirt). Host Bush asked offered each contestant, in turn, $500 in exchange for an unknown item (said to have something to do with the unannounced prize) concealed beneath each costume (i.e., below the waist). The contestant having to grope for said item. Two of the prizes -- beneath the kilt and toga -- were zonks, while the grass skirt led to a trip to Hawaii. • Deal 2 -- A blank check game, where the contestant was presented a $5 check and had four unrevealed spaces (containing either a zero, which could increase the value of the check up to $50,000). The contestant could quit at any time or risk their accumulated winnings that the next space uncovered was an X, which ends the deal and all winnings forfeited. At $5,000, Bush offered the contestant a chance to spend his winnings on a curtain. After the contestant quit with $5,000, he was shown the Chrysler PT Cruiser that was behind the curtain. BTW, the last uncovered space on the check was an X. • Deal 3 -- Five contestants were each given one share of Dealco stock, whose initial value was $500 and fluctuated during the show. The first update indicated the stock rose in value to $800. Each individual contestant could quit at any point and take the cash value of their stock, or hold on to it on the chance that the stock's value would decrease. Update later. • Deal 4 -- A group of five contestants (all college co-eds) were given a chance to win a trip for 10 to Jamacia (worth $26,600) by correctly lining up the prices of five grocery items in ascending order of price. Each contestant represented one product. The group got four of the items correct, but the last item was out of place, so they lost out on the trip (and an $2,500 offer to cancel the deal before the last reveal), but they won $500 for playing the deal. • Stock update -- The value of the stock went down to $400. • Deal 5 -- A contestant was shown a box of candy and asked if he wanted to keep it or pass it to the next player. One contestant won a pair of electric scooters worth $7,800, while the cash amount was eventually announced at $2,900. Yes, there were zonks in this deal as well. • Deal 6 -- Two married couples played. Three women each claimed to be fluent in a foreign language; the couples each could pick one. The first woman revealed she was from a nearby bar, while the other two women represented trips to Finland and the Fiji Islands. The Finland trip was won, while the other couple took a $900 cash buyout before the reveal. • Stock Update -- Worth $1,500 at the close of trading, which each contestant received. All five contestants eventually gave up their winnings on a curtain, which concealed a car that was about to be junked. • Big Deal of the Night -- worth $56,800 (wow!!!). The $5,000 winner (dressed as a pimp) and the woman who won the electric scooters elected to play. The least-expensive deal (a trip to New York and other prizes worth about $8,000) went unclaimed, while the woman won an Aspen skiing trip and other goodies worth more than $26,000. The Big Deal winner took home a plasma color TV, jewelry from Overstock.com and a BMW Z3 roadster.moreless
