One Drink

  • One team is all women
  • One or more of the players do a musical number
  • Richard threatens the audience when a joke falls flat
  • A female contestant consistently refuses to let Richard kiss her on the lips (you should play this as a sort of post-Fast Money bonus drinking round, after he's done kissing everyone. Keep track during the show.
    • Alternately, you can sip every time Richard doesn't get a kiss on the lips because of an intentional dodge)
  • The second Fast Money speech is "Once you've stopped laughing, give me 20 seconds on the clock."
  • A male contestant requests a kiss from Richard
  • Howard Felsher is mentioned in any context
  • Fast Money is won on the 10th reveal
  • Richard knows Fast Money is about to be won, so ushers in the point value with a cry ("BAM!", "Yabba dabba doo!", etc.), or hides with the contestant behind the question card
  • Richard makes a stock German joke ("Herr Dryer", "Herr Stylist", etc.)
  • Richard makes a Card Sharks joke

Three drinks

  • Richard mentions Match Game in any context (79-85)
  • Richard gets an extravagant gift that is clearly either hundreds of dollars in value, or required dozens of hours to make by hand.

  • A team hits the winnings limit
  • One player wins Fast Money by themselves (downgrade to 2 drinks during celeb weeks)

Drain the bottle
