  • Notes

    • THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES - Appearing are the first three contestants on the first episode of February 2, 1950. Next, early clips are shown of each panelist. We see a clip of a hesitant Steve Allen on his first show, and a remarkably sharp Arlene Francis. Arlene once wrote that she was very involved in the development of WML with Goodson and Todman. Next, an unemployment claims clerk comes on and plays a game. After that, John Charles Daly himself signs in as the mystery guest. Arlene is absolutely convinced it's Mark and Bill, but Bennett "smells eight rats" and senses foolishness afoot. Bennett wisely lets the questioning cycle once more before nailing John. Finally, Mark Goodson and Bill Todman, proud to have been a part of the longest running primetime game show ever, join the panel to say goodbye. - Robair (Robert Mackey 2004)
