  • Notes

    • TWO MORE SHOPPING DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!! This was the final show before Christmas and the panel probably wished they had taken the night off. In the first game, the panel was totally stumped by the friendly gondolier from Venice. Bennett probably would have guessed his line after asking about transportation, but he got a "no" when he specifically asked about trains, planes and automobiles. In the second game, they really were put through the wringer with the chicken vaccinator. They did get relatively close when they figured out he had something to do with chickens, but they never nailed it down. However, Bennett would agree, they did give it a good "shot." They redeemed themselves in the mystery guest round when they correctly identified the prodigal son Steve Allen and his lovely wife, "I've Got a Secret" panelist Jayne Meadows. Unfortunately, in the final game, the panel ran out of time so the female pawnbroker won the full prize by default. - Sargebri (2005)
