"Episode 23" - April 11

Last time, Hans Hartlaben caved after the Banker offered $44,000 and a pony for his daughter. The contents of his case... $200,000. Now he faces the challenge of a real-life banker in Tia Robertson. When we last left, she was in Round 4, awaiting the result of her final open. Could she be a millionaire-in-waiting?

To recall, these are her briefcase and board...

Husband Kevin says no deal. The crowd says no deal. Tia says no deal. Her mom says... "Oh my Lord have mercy! A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush!"

Two to open.

Case 20 (Marisa) $50,000

That's good..

Case 26 (Lindsay C) $5,000!

There's now a one-in-six chance of being a millionaire, and a 50/50 shot at having six figures. Here's what the Banker's calculator says...

  $ 25,000
  $ 75,000
  $ 100,000
  $ 200,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000

Mom says "Deal". Kevin says that $230,000 will be better. "One more case." That's what happens if Tia says no deal...

Deal or no deal?

"You know what? That's my baby. No deal."

One to open.

Case 25 (Sonia) "Please don't make me tackle my husband."

Tia isn't looking. She's looking at bald dude in the audience.

$25,000!

The banker phone rings...

  $ 25,000
  $ 75,000
  $ 100,000
  $ 200,000

Kevin says that this is Tia's call. "What kind of help is THAT?!" Deal or no deal? Now the audience is mixed... "DEAL!" Deal for $211,000!

But what would've happened? Megan has $100,000. The offer after? $340,000. Anya had $500. The offer after? $468,000. Julee had $75,000. The offer after? $660,000. Case 5 has...

$200,000

Tia's Case

A good deal. That's called timing.

Next up to the Dealer Podium... MARY COYLE! She's got eight children, who're all here, and 14 grandchildren, who're watching from Ontario, home of Howie. She's celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary at Deal or No Deal.

We're all shuffled, as Mary calls on Kasie to deliver the package... Case #13. "This is usually a large number." Someone's been talking to Klaussie... :)

Case 18 (Julee) "Five dollars, please."

$50

Case 4 (Lindsay S) Last time, Penny Case...

This time... $100,000.

So what does the banker offer after the break? Well, first off, the models take five, as they get a half-day. In their place? Members of the Coyle family.

No one sits in for the Banker, though. That's probably why he's so cranky.

BANK OFFER
$88,000

 

$ .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

That can send them to Ireland many times over, but the million is still in play, as are two more of the big seven. She can't knock them all out next round. Deal or no deal?

"(plays Charge) No deal!" Two to go.

Case 22 (Mary's son John) $5
Case 20 (Mary's son Tony) $75,000

The million is still in play, which means the bank offer is going up. With a 50/50 shot at six figures, and a 1-in 6 at a million...

BANK OFFER
$127,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 200,000
$ 25 $ 500,000
$ 300 $ 1,000,000

Would you sell a potential million-dollar case for a tenth of that amount? To Mary, that's a lot of money... "No deal!"

One to go. "Pick your least favorite kid!"

Case 21 (Mary's #2 son Jeff) $500,000

The good news, still $1 million in play. The bad news... Mary wants to speak to the Banker herself. I bet he's saying something like "What kind of game is this? Give me Howie or else!"

BANK OFFER
$119,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 200,000
$ 25 $ 500,000
$ 300 $ 1,000,000

Went down a little. She's got a 40 percent chance of opening a small amount. She's got a 40 percent chance of opening a big one. She's got her husband saying "Deal."

Deal? Or No Deal?

Mary says... Deal for $119,000! But what would've happened if she continued? Howie opens up $1 million... In Mary's case...

$200,000

Mary's Case
13

A bum deal, but still, that's up there, Mary. Kasie reveals the other amounts as we're left to say congrats and happy anniversary to Mary Coyle.

Next time, Miss USA hopefuls give the models a much-needed day off. See you then!
