Episode 3.17
June 5

"One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do...
Two can be as bad as one,
It's the loneliest number ____ ____ _____ _____."

We're playing twins on tonight's show, "since the number one" has yet to yield a $1 million winner.

The twins are from Orlando, and they're names are MIKE & MATT LANDIS. Playing alongside them are Mike's friend Dave and Matt's friend Glenn.

The big board...

MOTOWN    1970s
    R & B

We start with the $2500 song, and it's in ... Pop.

- "Faithfully" - Journey
- "Kiss Me" - Sixpence None the Richer

They play "Faithfully"...Three words. Let's start the journey!

Highway run
Into the midnight sun
Wheels go round and round
You're on my mind
Restless hearts
Sleep alone tonight
Sendin' all my love
Along the wire

They say that the road
Ain't no place to start a family
Right down the line

It's been you and me
And lovin' a music man
Ain't always what its supposed to be
Oh girl you stand by me
I'm... WHAT?

"Forever yours faithfully..." That works for $2500!

For $5000, they're going to feel the power.

- "18 and Life" - Skid Row
- "I Want to Know What Love Is" - Foreigner

Four words in "18 and Life" gets you 5000.

Ricky was a young boy, He had a heart of stone.
Lived 9 to 5 and worked his fingers to the bone.
Just barely got out of school, came from the edge of town.
Fought like a switchblade so no one could take him down.
He had no money, oooh no good at home.
He walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone
And now it's
18 and life You got it
18 and life you know
Your crime is time and it's 18... STOP!

"... and life to go". The twins lock it in for $5000!

Now let's go for double in the family.

- "Top of the World" - The Carpenters
- "Jump" - The Pointer Sisters

They want to go to the Top of the World. Three words, and they'll be there.

Such a feelin's comin' over me
There is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I wont be surprised if its a dream
Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen
I'm on the top of the world lookin'... WHERE?

"Down on creation." THAT's $10,000!

Now let's go for guaranteed money. Before we do, we get a performance from former Man at Work Colin Hay of "Who Can It Be Now". Now we're going to the 70s...

- "Bang a Gong" - T.Rex
- "Right Back Where We Started From" - Maxine Nightingale

Six words for "Bang a Gong"... Let's get it on!

Well you're dirty and sweet
Clad in Black
Don't look back
And I love you
You're dirty and sweet oh yea.
Well you're slim and you're weak
You got the teeth
Of the Hydra upon you.
You're ... WHAT?

"Dirty sweet and you're my girl." This is for the safe money...  YES!

Now to double THAT. We're going to Motown!

- "Stop! In the Name of Love" - Diana Ross & The Supremes
- "Ain't No Woman (Like the One I've Got)" - The Four Tops

We're going to STOP! ... in the name of love. Six words...

Stop! in the name of love
Before you break my heart

Baby, baby
I'm aware of where you go
Each time you leave my door
I watch you walk down the street
Knowing your other love you'll meet
But this time before you run to her
Leaving me alone and hurt
(think it over) after I've been good to you
(think it over)... THINK...

All that comes out is "Stop in the name of love". Obviously that's not it. They decide to use the 3 Lines.

a) "After all that we've been through"
b) "After I've been sweet to you"
c) "After I was there for you"

Still no idea, so we go to the 2 Words. They go with #2 and #6, leaving them with... ____ I've ____ ____ ____ you. That leaves them with B... and $50,000.

Next up, I wanna rock! For $100,000.

- "Hello, I Love You" - The Doors
- "Peace of Mind" - Boston

They want to love you. Love nine words, and you can love up on $100,000.

Hello, I love you
Won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you
Let me jump in your game
Hello, I love you
Won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you
Let me jump in your game
She's walking down the street
Blind to every eye she meets
Do you think you'll be the... BE WHO?

"Guy to make the queen of angels sigh?" Oh, sigh... That's $100,000!

Next, we're going to salute the Rocket Man.

- "Tiny Dancer"
- "Little Jeannie"

So they think they can dance... We'll see. Ten words for $200,000.

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand
Jesus freaks out in the street
Handing tickets out for God
Turning... STICKY?

"... Back... she just laughs..." Missing six more words. Time for a backup. Glenn finishes up with "The boulevard is not that bad." That's worth $200,000.

Next, something... for the ladies. It's Girls, Girls, Girls.

- "Use Ta Be My Girl" - The O'Jays
- "She's a Beauty" - The Tubes

They're beauty-ful... What would be even more beautiful are 10 words for $350,000.

Step right up and don't be shy,
because you will not believe your eyes.
She's right here behind the glass
and you're gonna like her,
'cause she's got class.
You can look inside another world.
You get to talk to a pretty girl. ... PRETTY...

"She's everything you dream about, but don't fall in love." She's a beauty for $350,000!

Only one thing left on the board, and it's R&B for half a mill...

- "Part-Time Lover" - Stevie Wonder
- "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough" - Michael Jackson

They go with Part-Time Lover for part-time millions...

Call up, ring once, hang up the phone
To let me know you made it home
Don't want nothing to be wrong with part-time lover
If she's with me I'll blink the lights
To let you know tonight's the night
For me and you my part-time lover
We are undercover... FREEZE!

After thinking over "Passion on the run, chasing love up against the sun", they decide that they're going to walk with the $350,000. That's what, $175,000 a piece. But would they have had it? The chorus...

We are undercover PASSION ON THE RUN,

They sure would've.

But next week is another story. Be back for that. Until then, remember that it's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it. Take us out, Colin Hay.
