"Take a look at me now, there's just an
There's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now, there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds,
____ ___ ____ ____ ____ ____"
Tonight on the party, two contestants
have faced devastating odds and overcome them... Now they're going to
come back on the stage, putting their bad luck behind them for a shot at
the million, and "it's a chance I've gotta take"
First up from Detroit Rock City, it's
SHARI WILSON! She's a single divorced woman with $110 in her checking
account, but she'd like to add a million for her daughter. Can she do it
tonight? Here's her board...
BOB SEGER BREAK UP SONGS
PARTY SONG 1960s
First up for $2500, it's going to be...
- "You've Made Me So Happy" - Blood,
Sweat & Tears
- "What's New Pussycat?" - Tom Jones
She goes with "What's New Pussycat". She
What's new pussycat, whoa whoa whoa

... "Yes I do". She locks in the lyrics
for $2500. Next we go classic for...
- "Give a Little Bit" - Supertramp
- "Light My Fire" - The Doors
She wants to light up. She needs three
words to do it...
You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the... WHAT?
"Night on fire"... is good again for
$5000! Next for $10,000... Bob Seger...
- "Against the Wind"
Her mother loves "Against the Wind".
She's going with that. We're looking for four words...
It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Caught like a wildfire out of control
'Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove
And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then
Against the wind
We were.... WHAT WERE WE DOING?
"Runnin' against the wind". That sounds
right, but she calls for a backup. After we pay the bills, she plays her
karaoke buddy Eric. He agrees with Shari's guess. She uses the Two
Words... First and last... We get "Runnin' ____ ____ wind"... She
finally goes with her gut... and her gut is right!
Next is for guaranteed money. We go to
- "Because of You" - Kelly Clarkson
- "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" - Chicago
Rather than go with Rickey's close
personal friend... we go to "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is".
Six words gets you $25,000.
As I was walking down the street one day
A man came up to me and asked me what the time was that was on my watch,
And I said
Does anybody really know what time it is
Does anybody really care... ANYBODY?
"If not I can't imagine why". She uses
the Three Lines...
A: They say time is gonna fly
B: You know I gotta wonder why
C: If so I can't imagine why
She locks in C... and she's got $25,000!
To double, we go to R&B.
- "There'll Be Sad Songs" - Billy Ocean
- "You Send Me" - Sam Cooke
She goes with Mr. Sam Cooke. We need to
send her seven words.
Darling you send me
Honest you do, honest you do
Honest you do, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
At first I thought it was infatuation
But woo, it's lasted so long
Now I find myself wanting... to WHAT?
"To marry you and take you home." That is
a beautiful sentiment, but will she lock it in? She does... She has
Now... for $100,000... Let's party
- "Let's Groove" - Earth, Wind & Fire
- "I Got You (I Feel Good)" - James Brown
She feels good... She feel 10 words?
I feel good, I knew that I would now
So good, so good, I got you
Whoa! I feel nice, like sugar and spice
I feel nice, like... WHAT?
"Sugar and spice, so nice, so nice,
'cause I got". She's missing a word... She has no backups... She doesn't
know how to change that up, so she's going to walk with the $50,000. No
shame in her game. Correct: Sugar and spice, so nice, so nice, I got
Next up to play is MICHELLE GRAMALDO from
San Diego. She's playing for a new home to replace her old one that was

her friends who helped her rebuild. Now let's help her get to a million
dollars. The board...

Starting with "Don't Stop Believin'".
We're looking for three words...
Just a small town girl, livin' in a
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere
A singer in a smokey room
The smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on
Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searchin'... where?
"Through the night" It's that one word that's bugging her. Husband Greg
and boss Tom... will have to sit on their hands while she uses the 2
Words. She ends up with "in ___ night" "In the night" sounds lockable...
and she does for $2500.
Love Songs next, please...
- "Never Gonna Let You Go" - Sergio
- "How Much I Feel" - Ambrosia
She feels like Ambrosia. Does she feel
like $5000? She better feel three words.
That's how much I feel
Feel for you, baby

How much I live I live for your loving...
"That's how much" is right for $5000.
Moving right along to Disco.

- "Hot Stuff" - Donna Summer
Ten large is "Hot Stuff". Three words.
Three audience members joining...
Sitting here, eatin' my heart out waitin'

Gotta have some hot stuff

- "Jenny Take a Ride" - Mitch Ryder & The
- "People Are Strange" - The Doors
She's gonna do something strange for a
People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down
When you're strange...
"People look all the same.." Obviously
she's blanking, so she goes with 3 Lines.
A: Faces come out of the rain
B: People stay out in the rain
C: People don't think that you're sane
She locks in A... and with all her
friends in tow she's... RIGHT!
For $50,000, we're going to rock it out.
- "Come Sail Away" - Styx
- "Get Off My Cloud" - The Rolling Stones
She's... sailing away...... Set an open
course for seven words and $50,000.
I'm sailing away, set an open course for
the virgin sea
On board, Imp the captain, so climb aboard
Well search for tomorrow on every shore
And I'll try... TO DO WHAT?
And... completely blanked. She uses her 1
Backup with Tom. He says "oh lord, I'll try to carry on". He knows this.
She goes with it..... GOT IT!
Next for $100,000... R&B.
- "Nothing From Nothing" - Billy Preston
- "Save the Best For Last" - Vanessa Williams
We're saving the best for last... Nine
words... for $100,000.
Sometimes the snow comes down in June
Sometimes the sun goes round the moon
I see the passion in your eyes
Sometimes its all a big surprise
cause there was a time when all I did was wish
You'd tell me this was love
It's not the way I hoped or how I planned
But somehow its enough
And now were standing... WHERE?
"Face to face, isn't this world a crazy
place" She won't feel bad if she's wrong... She doesn't have to. She's
But can she win $200,000? Poppin' it
- "Beat It" - Michael Jackson
- "Roll To Me" - Del Amitri
"Beat Iiiiiiit!" This is for Michael, ten
words are for Michelle...
They told him don't you ever come around
Don't wanna see your face, you better disappear
The fire's in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it! Just beat it!
Just beat it! (beat it! ) Beat it! (beat it!)
No one wants to be defeated
Show them how funky and strong... HOW STRONG
"You're just right, you don't know the
words so it..." Out of lyrics-lines... out of luck. She decides to throw
in the towel, but $100,000 is one hell of a block party! Correct: "is
your fight, it doesn't matter who's wrong or right".
Next time, we round out the season with
one more shot at a million. Until then, remember, it's not what you know
about it, it's what you sing about it. Take us out, Rickey.
