** ''Price'' finally began to modernize its production upon the arrival of Drew Carey; an entirely new set was built (which still maintained a similar layout to the original, however), and flat-panel displays began to appear within new and refurbished games (such as Any Number, Plinko, Bonus Game, and Grand Game), along with the current Contestants' Row and Showcase podia. However, these moves have afflicted ''Price'' with a SchizoTech vibe, given that these modern, computerized props are still being used alongside those which use the aforementioned trilons and eggcrates.

However, these moves have afflicted ''Price'' with a SchizoTech vibe, given that these modern, computerized props are still being used alongside those which use the aforementioned trilons and eggcrates. Much like the Barker era, Drew's set has also gone through progressive upgrades to add an increasing amount of monitors and lighting effects, still being used alongside older props that are likely 20-30 years old.

** April 4, 2005: A contestant playing Flip Flop hit the price reveal button ''without actually changing the price''. Barker, after declaring that "I'm going home" and calling the contestant a "troublemaker", ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QezIBLK5WHg gave him the prize anyway.]]'' When this happened ''again'' in the Drew Carey era- albeit after the contestant had made their choice and pushed the button without delay, the button was relocated out of direct view to avoid anymore mishaps.

** February 28, 1992 (unproven): A contestant playing Three Strikes for a Porsche had two chips left (the number and the third Strike) and allegedly very nearly pulled the Strike out of the bag...but suddenly dunked it back in and pulled out the number. Despite it never being proven that she cheated, Three Strikes + wasn't played for the rest of Season 20 and the Strike discs became white with red X's for a brief time.

Despite it never being proven that she cheated, Three Strikes + wasn't played for the rest of Season 20 and the Strike discs became white with red X's for a brief time. The rules were later revised to feature three discs instead of one to discourage further attempts to avoid cheating.
