  • Notes

    • FLIP REPORT: It was a good night for the panel, but it was also a good night for flipping cards, though none of the contestants were actually awarded the full prize of $50. John flipped three cards for the first contestant after Dorothy guessed his line at four down. John felt that Mr. Zold should get something extra for "answering with conviction." For the second contestant, John flipped three cards at four down. Steve had identified her line after Bennett made a joking comment that perhaps the second contestant wrestled with the first contestant. The "WML?" producers were, of course, playing a little joke on the panel, but the panel had the last laugh once Bennett opened the door for Steve to correctly identify her line. Finally, John flipped six cards for the final contestant when her line was guessed at one down. Arlene had suggested a possible association with pretzels during her wild guess and Dorothy came up with the line, following some prompting from Arlene. - agent_0042 (2008)
