Today is

"Episode 17" - March 24

Last time, Janie Colosso decided to just have fun with the banker after decimating the right-hand column, leaving with $750. We now pick up with case 21 and the owner, Brett "Kurtzy" Kurtz, as he is about to open up case 12...

?

Brett's Case
21

Get the power move going... Jill.... Open the case.

Case 12 (Jill) $5,000

Brett still has his lucky handkerchief. Let's see what the banker says about that...

BANK OFFER
$52,000

 

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

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

"No big success comes without risk, baby. No deal!" the wife says... With an 80% chance that Brett is sitting on less than $300. Then he goes into this romantic spiel about garbage whatchamacallit salad fruit cup. Brett says... "The really great can make you believe that you can become great. That woman makes me believe!" No deal.

One to open... The wife says 5. Sarah says avoid.

Case 7 (Sara) $300

And there's the banker...

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

Maurie still feels good, but let's ask Sarah. She says "deal". What's $76,000? "It's a lot of trips to Fiji." Everyone says Deal.... Except Brett. No deal. Howie's like "WTF, mate?" "You may have just made a huge mistake. But we'll find out... After the break.'

One to open... Joe-Joe says stay away from 23.

Case 5 (Ursula) Ursula says that she's very nervous...

Howie gives her the power "from behind"...

BOOM. $300,000

And there are two audience members either laughing or getting ready to laugh. Maurie runs over to give her fallen hero a hug, at which point we say... "Awwwwwwwwwwwbarf." The banker, with his corncob pipe in hand, says...

Brett's Case

He found it. Aubrie had $10. But still, he had a great time. Let's shuffle up and play again. Next on tap is... Lisa Fournier! Lisa is 34, originally from Lowell, MA, now living in Pelham, NH as an RN. She wants to take the children on a vacation. She reveals a fortune cookie: "A star of riches is shining upon you."

We'll see. Pick a case, please. "My daughter's birthday, number 9."
