    • We hear the first "breadbox" reference during the questioning of the final contestant who sells manhole covers:

      Steve: (using the first version of the famous question "Is it bigger than a breadbox?" that would become forever associated with him and the program) It's a product, I take it then, that you would use outside of the home, huh? Don't know how that came to me all of a sudden. Is it a large product, if you want to accept as a norm, something the size of a breadbox, let's say?
      John: Yes, if a breadbox is your norm, it's a large product, yes.
      Arlene: Wanna show us your breadbox, Steve?
