  • Notes

    • REVIEW: This was a pretty fun night for the panel. Most of the fun was provided by guest panelist Tom Poston, who really seemed to enjoy his appearances on the show. At one humorous point, Tom feigned disgust and actually started walking off the stage in frustration. The camera followed him for a few seconds and we saw a rare shot of one of the CBS cameras. Of course, Tom quickly ended his joke and returned to his seat. In spite of Tom's jokes, it was also a fairly successful night, especially for Mr. and Mrs. Gabel. Unfortunately, things didn't start off so well when the panel failed to correctly identify the personal assistant of the Duchess of Windsor. Things did get better and the fun picked up as the panel tried to figure out what was so special about the diving act that the pretty contestant from Florida performed. However, Arlene, with a little help from the audience, eventually figured out that the contestant dove from 40 feet in the air on back of a horse into about 12 feet of water. However, John (aka General Jack) must have felt sorry for her as he flipped over all the cards. In the mystery guest round, after Dorothy opened the door by determining that the guests were dancers, it was Martin's turn to make a correct guess as he correctly identified the husband and wife dance team of Gower and Marge Champion. And that pretty much ended a pretty fun night. - Sargebri (2005)

      BRITISH ROYALTY SECRETS: The official reason for Edward III's abdication of the British throne was his marriage to divorcée Wallis Warfield Simpson. However, several years later it was speculated that another reason for his abdication might have centered around his political leanings. One rumor that came out several years after his death was that he was a Nazi sympathizer and that because of this, he was asked to step down rather than cause even further embarrassment for the crown. - Sargebri (2005)

      EARLY REDNECK JOKE!!! During the questioning of the Champions, guest panelist Tom Poston asked if they were related and married to each other. When asked why he asked such a question, Tom said, "They do it down home!" - Sargebri (2005)
