Wheel of Poker

[Studio Audience] {Shouting in unison} “Wheel… of… Poker!”

[TV Announcer] “Ladies and gentlemen, Prince Manhattan and Donna Doubletree.”

[PM] “Welcome to Wheel of Poker…! So glad you could all join us today. Everyone leaves a winner on Wheel, not like in a poker tournament.”

[PM] “Our first toss-up is a Phrase. It’s worth $1,000. Buzz in as soon as you know the answer.”1

[PM] “Peter Kent from Joliet, Illinois. You’ve won the thousand bucks! I hear that your father used to have an interesting job.”

[PK] “You may know of Joliet Prison from its role in The Blues Brothers movie or as the set for Prison Break. Well, my dad used to be a warden there. He would threaten to lock me up there if I misbehaved. Made sure I knew that I could steal pots, but I better not steal pot.”

[PM] “Next, Clark Stark from Menlo Park. At least your parents have a sense of humor.”

[CS] “We named our brown dog Bark and our black cat Dark, but they wouldn’t let me have a shark. By the way, the town is actually called Edison, New Jersey, but I attended Menlo Park Elementary School and shopped at Menlo Park Mall.”

[PM] “And Tony Parker from Parker, Texas. Are your parents friends with Clark’s? No relation to the basketball player, I presume.”

[TP] “No genetic relationship, but we we were born on the same exact day.”

[PM] “Do you get a lot of phone calls and mail for him?”

[TP] “Very little; most people probably try to contact him through the Spurs, and Parker is a suburb of Dallas, almost 300 miles from San Antonio. I wouldn’t mind accidentally getting one of his paychecks.”

[PM] “Okay, time for the second toss-up, a Quote to decide who’s going to win $2,000 and start the first round.”
