: : After reading in Irving Fein's biography that Jack Benny once appeared on the $64,000 Question TV show, I could imagine if Jack were still alive that he might try the same routine with Regis on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and quit after just winning one hundred dollars and Regis going crazy wondering why he wants to quit after only winning one question. It would be VERY funny indeed!

You reminded me of an episode of Jack's where he
and Don talk about what Jack did on Wednesday nights....Jack
tells Don that he would attend a program where they
would give away prizes to audience members if their
names where called out. Jack said the first time
his name was called out, he didn't make it up to
the stage on time, and the second time his name
was called out, he was disqualified for wearing
roller skates! Don asked Jack what he missed out
on.....Jack said a case of Minute Tapioca!!! So
you're right, if Jack was willing to go rolling
down the isle for a case of minute tapioca, he
certainly would have stopped after winning $100
on Who Wants to be a Millionaire!

Cheers!
