Tidbits: The name plaques are back, they've been missing for several episodes.
Congratulations, Arlene! She was awarded an Honorary Doctorate Degree (Doctor of Humanities) from the American International College in Springfield, MA. Not to be outdone, John Daly mentioned that he too was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from them! John and Arlene referred to each other as "Doctor" tonight!
Deerfield Academy was also mentioned again, as Arlene's son (Peter Gabel) and Bennett's son (Jonathan Cerf) graduated yesterday.
During the goodbyes, Dorothy's comment to John, "10022 to you too" is in reference to the new zip code in the address of CBS which John reads on each episode. He tells viewers how to write in to become a possible contestant. In his 1978 WML book, Gil Fates stated that very few contestants were culled from the viewer write-ins. - Suzanne (2004)
