  • Notes

    • FLIP REPORT: John flipped the remaining cards for the second contestant at four down. The panel had figured out the association with cows, but was given time for little else. This game was a trick that was played on the panel, because this contestant had previously appeared on the show. However, it was obvious that "no bells" went off in the minds of the panel members, because they were thoroughly bamboozled by this fun trick. In the final game, John flipped the remaining cards for the final pair of contestants at five down. At the outset of this game, he had warned the panel that they had only a minute to guess the occupation. Due to such a short amount of questioning time, the panel never came close on this one. - agent_0042 (2008)

      BAD PUN ALERT: During the "wild guess" segment of the first game with Ruth Ezekiel, the dentist from Bombay, India, Bennett guessed, "I think Miss Ezekiel has been taking Gandhi from babies." This was a play on words of the phrase "taking candy from babies." Instead, Bennett made a reference to Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), who was a political and spiritual leader of India. To make matters worse, Bennett's pronunciation of "Gandhi" as "Gandy" caused it to rhyme with "candy." - Suzanne (2008)

      SAY CHEESE: While John Daly is standing at the sign-in board and greeting Ruth Ezekiel, immediately after John says the word "trip," a bright camera flash can be seen illuminating the two. Possibly, somewhere in the CBS photograph archives exists a still photo of John Daly and Ruth Ezekiel. - Suzanne (2008)
