  • Notes

    • RARE KILGALLEN MISTAKE: Dorothy, whose meticulous approach to game-playing is well-documented, made an unusual error, losing her place in the second game by citing a line of questioning from the first game. In his earlier questioning of the champagne salesman, Peter had asked if the contestant's product "had anything to do with a ladies' hairpiece." Over nine minutes later, while the following game with the ice bag maker was winding down, the panel was granted a conference, which led to this exchange:

      Bennett: "Something to do with hair?"
      Arlene: "Peter said something about hair."
      Peter: "No, I didn't say anything about hair."
      Dorothy: "You said 'did it have anything to do with a ladies' hairpiece.'"

      Dorothy's error was not caught. - obbor (2004)
