*** OP here: I knew about Drew's original intentions, but by "stay during his tenure", did Drew mean he would make sure everyone else would say it as well, as long as he was still hosting the show in the long run? Or are the guest hosts still allowed to sign off however they want, but just decide to take it up on their own merit?

***** In gameplay terms, bidding $420 is the exact same effect as bidding $1. Maybe a slightly better bid if anyone is unskilled enough to bid below that amount afterwards. Still tired though.

* Switcheroo is probably the most poorly-played game on the show. The idea is to price the small items correctly, so as to determine the arbitrary fourth digit of the car by process of elimination. Players always guess the car digit first. And they play way too fast; 30 seconds is plenty of time to think about and place each block. If you take your time and try to price the small items correctly, the game's actually pretty winnable.

** It was Drew Carey's choice to continue saing it. When Bob appeared for his 90th birthday, he told the audience that Drew's first comment to him when they met was that the spay and neuter message was going to stay during his tenure.

* Has the "spay and neuter your pets" thing become so ingrained in the show that it would be heretically out of place for a guest host (such as an April Fool's Day host or Ricki Lake's ''Gameshow Marathon'' one-off) to ''not'' mention it at the end? Unlike Bob Barker, neither Drew Carey nor the guest hosts ever seem to exhibit a strong passion in animal ethics/population control/etc. outside of the show, so tradition or not, it seems ''much more'' tacked on, almost like a contractual obligation, when someone aside from Barker (or even Carey) mentions it.

* It's in the Bag seems to have a high volume of contestants who choke at the $4,000 payoff and back out of the game. The $1,000 is usually a gimme as the cheapest and most obvious grocery item, then the $2,000 mark follows in the opposite direction with the most expensive item. But from there, it just seems random and contestants settle with what they've got.

** There was one early 90's episode in which the top winner specifically stated that she passed a car showcase to the other contestant because she had already won a car and the other player just missed winning one in her own game. Her generosity was rewarded when the second showcase turned out to be the more expensive of the two ( a trip, a hottub and a camper).

*** On a related note, someone actually did that. He was a gynecologist who won with that bid, which was another aspect of getting the joke, and it was when the DrewCarey era began, and we all know his rep for dirty jokes and contagious laugh. Link all of that together, and everyone in the world watching the clip on YouTube probably got the joke.

** Sometimes games are like that. ''The Price Is Right'' already isn't exactly a game of skill and hard knowledge, anyway.
