"Episode 11" - March 6

Last week, bigger money meant bigger deals. A few players capitalized on that to walk home with almost a million dollars. Now we're back to regular money, but that doesn't mean it's less exciting.

Let's see how exciting this gets with our first contestant... Patrick Meritato. Lucky fist pound, and we're ready to start. Patrick, who goes by the nickname "Monty", is a regional manager for a beverage company from Nanuet, NY. 

You know how this works... Twenty-six women control 26 cases. Each one holds the following...

6 TO OPEN

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

The values were placed by a third-party. Only that third-party knows what value is where. Monty starts by picking a case... In this case, it's Tamara's #8. That is his case unless he wants to sell it. But first... he must open six cases. Whatever is in those cases isn't in his...

Case 12 (Jill) PENNY CASE off the bat!
Case 16 (Kim) $1
Case 10 (Patricia) $400,000
Case 11 (Katie) $25

I think Howie's fist is broken by now.

Case 9 (Marisa) $500
Case 22 (Jenelle) $10

A lot of big money left on the board. But here's one character that doesn't want Monty to go home with any of it.... The Banker. He will make cash offers to buy back Monty's case throughout the game. His first...

BANK OFFER
$25,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

If Monty brushes this deal off, he will have to open five more cases before the next offer. If he takes the deal, then $25,000 is his. Deal or No Deal? "You tell the banker to call back when he gets serious... NO DEAL!"

Five to go...

Case 13 (Leyla) $75
Case 5 (Ursula) Ohhh...

$750,000

Case 6 (Megan) $300
Case 4 (Lindsey) Lindsey: "I'm gonna try to keep it going."

Nice try, but $200,000 is not "keeping it going."

Case 3 (Lisa) $500,000

Three big amounts go off this time... The banker calculates... and while he's doing that, he mocks Monty... The phone continues to ring into the commercial. Afterwards, the banker, who doesn't like to be kept waiting, offers this, a little lower than previously offered...

BANK OFFER
$15,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

With Monty is his team, wife Teresa, mom Jenny, brother Nunzio (yes, THAT Nunzio), and best friend Michael Bowen. They all say that if he takes the deal, he'll walk back to New York... No deal it is... Four to open...

Case 21 (Tameka) She opens... She closes... She opens again...

$1,000,000

In his last 5 picks, Monty has knocked off the top 3 amounts.

Case 23 (Aubrie) $400
Case 25 (Sonia) $750
Case 18 (Alike) Fakeout...

$5

Still a lot of money in play. The banker offers some more to go home...

BANK OFFER
$21,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000

$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

"Take a walk, banker!" No deal for Monty! Three to open...

Case 17 (Donna) $300,000
Case 15 (Kasie) Turn it around.... There it is...

$1,000

Case 24 (Nancy) $10,000

But that's okay. There's still $100,000 in play. The banker says that he was expecting more of a challenge...

BANK OFFER
$13,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

Our boy Monty rejects this one, too... Two to open.

Case 26 (Lindsay) $50
Case 1 (Claudia) Another fakeout...

$200

Good opens this time. Here's the banker...

BANK OFFER
$30,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000

$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

There is a one in six chance that he has $100,000. "He came here to push the envelope, and $30,000 ain't gonna do it, Howie," says Nunzio. After a break, Monty tells the banker to take a walk. "No deal." One to open.

Case 19 (Anya) And there goes the envelope...

$100,000

The bank calls in without delay.

BANK OFFER
$16,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000

$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

"Tell him to come down here and make the offer." No deal. One case to open.

Case 14 (Mylinda) $75,000

It's going from bad to worse. The banker is lowballing again...

BANK OFFER
$12,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000

$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

"That's one night in New York City." No deal. One to open.

Case 2 (Stacey) We take a break... We get after the break... "Monty, it's your lucky day!"

$100

For the first time in the history of this show in America, the left side of the board is clear! That's going to drive the bank offer way up... Well, as high as it can get given the circumstances... After Monty and Nunzio share in a man hug and Nunzio almost gives Howie the business, the bank offer does indeed go higher...

BANK OFFER
$24,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

"There's 50 on the board. Push it, Pat." No deal! One to open.

Case 20 (Ingrid) $5,000!

The bank makes his final offer...

BANK OFFER
$38,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000

$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000

$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

If he says no deal, he goes home with what's in his case. "No deal." That's it, then... He just turned down $38,000 for what's in his case... Or would he like to switch cases? "You go with your first call." He doesn't switch, which means he's ending up with...

$25,000

Patrick's Case
8

Sara indeed had $50,000.

But we still have time to play another game. The values are switched and the board is reset... Let's play again with Kim Woods, a medical insurance biller married 21 years. And she's excited. That's good. Let's play! She chooses 21, presumably for her 21 years of marriage. And like that, Kristin's case is now Kim's case.

?

Kim's Case
21

Six to open...

Case 10 (Anya) $300
Case 26 (Lindsey) $100
Case 12 (Jill) $1,000
Case 9 (Patricia) $10
Case 18 (Alike) $500,000
