Josh: and for that, i'll be joining the singles club with Curtis Franks
trying to redeem myself for a new girlfriend
Chico: Could be worse.
Gordon: Would you or James ever go on the show in the chair?
James: No. I'd probably be the most boring player ever.
Josh: Well, the short answer is no...the long answer ultimately ends
with no too
Chico: This is the longest opening spiel EVER.
Gordon: We get a nice long intro - which means we're looking at a short
exit this evening. Its on in 5...4....3....2....
James: That opening seems to be about 30 minutes or so
Gordon: I notice via The Futon Critic, that this episode is actually
Episode 112 - which means that we're still in season one.
Chico: Really, now.
Chico: Could it be that it's airing out of order?
Gordon: Or it could be that after seeing the first few episodes and
knowing that there could be a strike looming, that FoX saved some in
James: Fox generally doesn't have much summer programming outside of
Dance and Hell's Kitchen that succeeds...doesn't hurt to air fresh
episodes of MOT now.
Chico: And now that the threat is somewhat averted... we're just having
fun at someone else's expense. :-)
Gordon: We see a replay of Aurora going nova on Curtis

Gordon: Christina says that sometimes she enjoyed her old job...
When you were a flight
attendant, did you deliberately bump someone with a beverage cart?
Chico: She says she did.
Gordon: She says that if you get on her bad side, she'll do it, so the
answer is True.
Chico: Don't mess with her. TRUE.
Gordon: The family all chuckles.
Chico: Of course.
Gordon: She says she loves to shop...
Have you ever taken a joy ride
in a stolen car?
Chico: She says yes. TRUE.

Jewish nun. Heh.
Gordon: She says she's the type of girl that usually gets what she
Have you ever dressed
provocatively for a job interview because you knew the interviewee
was a man?
Gordon: She says yes, because guys are
Gordon: Quite honestly, if I knew I could dress a certain way to get a
job, I'd do it. Maybe not a dress though...
Have you ever stolen
medication out of someone's cabinet and used it for recreational
Gordon: She says...no.

Chico: Another one?
James: Suspected DUI suspect being chased around SoCal
Josh: It's me.
Gordon: OJ Yawn. We're back on the show, and Christina says...yes.
Chico: bow bow chicka bow bow
Gordon: It's deemed true., and Christina has $10,000. She can quit - or
keep going for $25,000.
Chico: Next tier of questions is "going to take a different tone". That
means "get ready for liftoff."
Gordon: Christina says she's outgoing and confident...
Chico: LEVEL 2: the blue level.
Have you ever cancelled plans
to go out because you felt insecure about your weight?

'awwws' from the audience.

Gordon: Which you can eat after you go to Hooters

boyfriend of cheating on you?
Gordon: She says yes, quite
Gordon: She says that most men do cheat - and looks at her father, who
promptly looks down at the floor. Uh-oh...
Chico: Meanwhile, her friend Joe can be trusted.
Gordon: She knows Joe for 14-15 years.
Have you ever been sexually
attracted to your friend Joe?
Chico: I betcha she says yes.
Don: Wouldn't surprise me.
Gordon: She's been with him for 15 years. you'd have to think that there
had to be a moment of lust somewhere
Chico: Commercial Break Time.
James: And the car chase ends...guy gave up without a struggle
Chico: Wow. That's rare
Josh: Well, they offered me stuff.
James: Traffic reporter was the funniest part of the chase...He mocked
the driver for riding in the carpool lane, and complimented him for "not
Chico: That's "clip show" material there. World's Greatest Videos and
what not? Back to the Joe for a moment..
Gordon: She says yes and Joe just nods his head up and down
Chico: TRUE. Much to the surprise of no one.
Gordon: Mark asks if Joe feels the same and he says yes quite quickly
Chico: Now to the $25,000 Moment of Truth.
Gordon: Joe plays the guitar - and she says that he's great. Joe will be
asking question #11.
Do you think I have what it
takes to make it as a professional musician?

can continue to go for $100,000.
Chico: Dad says "Do what you gotta do."

but Christina says to let's go for it. Four from $100,000.
Chico: LEVEL 3: The teal level
Gordon: Christina says the divorce was hard for her.
Chico: Uh oh. This can only end one way
Gordon: I think we know where this is going...
Do you think your father made
the right choice when he left your mother?
Gordon: Christina says that she thinks
everyone in her family knows the answer - and she says the answer is no.
Gordon: I think she is going to have no problems venting out some anger.
John adds that 'everyone includes him', He says that he knows he didn't
want to hit the button. Since everyone knows that dad has 'probably'
cheated, this may be easier for her to get through these questions than
the last set.
Do you blame your father for
ruining your childhood?
Chico: Break music!
Don: Oh, boy...
Chico: "It's an ending so emotional, it could tear this family apart!!!"
Which means... It won't. If they're anything like my family, they know
this stuff already.
Gordon: It certainly seemed like they knew this stuff. I think the real
question is would Christina be willing to throw dad under the bus for
$100,000, and so far, she seems like she will have no trouble doing it.
Chico: Fresh meat is being accepted at fox.com/truth. Back to the show.
Gordon: Neither family member is going near the button, which means they
know the answer - 'Yes'
Chico: She says... yes. TRUE
Gordon: She said that it was a hard time and he made some bad decisions,
so there was some feelings of blame.
Chico: She wants to keep going.
Gordon: Mark reminds her that she knows where this is going. She wants
to go on. She says that generally, they have a great relationship...
Do you believe your father is
Gordon: Robin is not going anywhere near
the button - almost thinking that dad needs to hear this. Christina
Gordon: 1 away from $100,000
Chico: $100,000 Moment of Truth...
Gordon: She admits the questions were hard
Chico: The questions are only hard if the answers are.
Gordon: For $100,000....
Would you be happy to marry a
man who is just like your father?
Gordon: VERY easy answer - but how hard
is it to say 'no' on TV?
Chico: No... no break music.
Gordon: Break music! (boogies to break music) And we get - the long and
winding recap. Let's see...9 minutes left....lots of break time...I'm
guessing a yes and a quit at $100,000.
Gordon: She says no...and I figured that's an easy 100 G's
Gordon: And it is
Chico: He admits that he's got some imperfections. How diplomatic.
Gordon: John says that's nobody's perfect, and he has some
imperfections, and he adds that it's understandable that everyone's
looking for the perfect person - and he hopes Christina finds it.
Gordon: Mark says he thinks she can go as far as she wants. 3 away from
Chico: I have a feeling she's going to say "good night" .
Gordon: She says 'good night'.
Chico: But she does so with $100,000.
Gordon: She takes the money. She leaves to meet her family. And we're
done. For everyone, this is Gordon Pepper, saying Game Over - and spread
