Gordon: We are back, and if
you showed up late, you missed Mark Cuban, Jen
C., and other stuff that you'd have to go into the
spoiler's section to read.
Chico: I'll give you a hint... Puppies.
Gordon: Speaking of which - Chico, what puppy do we have
Chico: Aside from unreal world antics, there were a lot
of figures flying
about this week, leading us to our first happy-fun
segment: Number Please.
Basically, I throw out a number, and Gordon tries and
correlate it with something.
Gordon: Let's do it.
Chico: Alrighty... First number. 1. This one's pretty
easy if you were paying
Gordon: The amount of Mark Cuban episodes I have to
painfully sit through
until the Benefactor is finally put out of it's misery?
Chico: True, but there's something more... and the
answer... is here:
Gordon: That...is...true pain.
Chico: What could go down as the worst Showcase loss in
Gordon: Even more painful than Mark Cuban's show.
Chico: Build a bridge and get over it, Gordon, it's
Gordon: It's not over - it will never be over because I
still have to see him
on TV on every Dallas Maverick televised game.
Chico: You don't have to watch THOSE games.
Gordon: Actually, because the Nets are in a fire sale
season and the Knicks
still look like a 6th or 7th seeded team. I may. There's
no ice hockey either
this year. Anyone for college hoops? Or the next
Chico: Okay, move on... next number... 2.
Gordon: 2.... the number of team reshufflings there have
been on Mark Burnett
Chico: Yep. Also the number of Rubertes on Family Feud
with the last name
Ruberte. Team captain Hernan is a Santiago... AND the
number of Street Smarts
shows caught by the Congress that aired this week.
Gordon: Actually - 3.
Chico: Oh, sorry.
Gordon: 2 TV Tapings, 3 shows in each taping - 6 shows.
But you could have
gone to 4 tapings, if...well, I'm just cluttering up the
Chico: Yes you are.
Gordon: OK - while I'm cleaning up my clutter,
let's get to the next number...
Chico: 896.... 97... 98... 99....
Gordon: Let's see...counting up the seconds - that would
be 15 minutes of
Chico: Actually... You're wrong. Not this week,
Gordon: Well, that's still 15 minutes. What does the
Chico: It's actually apparently the temperature at which
the circuitry of the
Magic Number window burns... A player this week stopped
the window at 896...
and it kept going.
Gordon: Well, it's supposed to be a MAGIC window, isn't
Chico: Not THAT magic. Like it was on magic mushrooms.
Drugs are bad, mmkay?
Gordon: The neon lights...the magic numbers...in between
prizes....wheeeeeeee *snaps out of it* - I assume that
the window was trying to tell the
contestant that the number was too low?
Chico: Well, we'll never know, since the prices were
never revealed. Bob
ended up giving the player the two prizes.
Gordon: So it magically gave the prizes out to the
contestant? See it IS a
Chico: Okay, next... 1999.
Gordon: The year that Game Show Newsnet started, of
Chico: Yes, true. It's also the year that Alexia Henke
won Miss Goth New
York... Five years before her Millionaire appearance.
Unfortunately, she got some
wrong information, and ended up with $1000.
Gordon: But $1,000 I'm sure gets some nice goth
Chico: Well, she won't need them any time soon. She grew
Gordon: Come on., Who couldn't use extra streaks and
Chico: I think someone needs a makeover! :-)
Gordon: If you try to put the spiked heels on me, I'll
Chico: Aww, come on. Don't knock it 'til you tried it.
Gordon: I'll take your word for it.
Chico: Okay, couple more numbers for you... but first, a
bit of a
Chico: Now this show, We Love to Interrupt, is "taped"
two days in advance of
release on any typical day.
Chico: That said... the next number... 23.
Gordon: The day that this show is being taped?
Chico: Think harder..
Gordon: Michael Jordan is the guest for the next
Chico: The number of days until the Amazing Race
Gordon: Ahhhh. You're counting the days, eh?
Chico: Aren't you?
Gordon: Well, I am anticipating the debut of the new
Chico: I'll take that as a yes.
Gordon: Yes, It's marked on the calendar.
Chico: And finally, 37,245,119.
Gordon: I'm batting almost a perfect thousand here. I
have no idea.
Chico: Number of times I cursed the mortal soul of Scott
Stone during any
given Shop 'Til You Drop broadcast. Just picture it.
Orgasmic screams over... get
this... a trip to New York.
Gordon: Well we have screams here when people travel to
New York - they
usually happen when traveling thee subway systems alone
past 2am or when seeing
your restaurant and hotel bill.
Chico: That's scary. I've been there. Trust me.
Gordon: Right in time for Halloween week. We'll spook
you some more material
when we come back, as we find out who everyone's daddy
is. Who's your daddy,
Chico: Carlos Ricardo Alexander. Yours?
Gordon: Allan Pepper. We'll see other people's daddies
after this break.
