“Which Will You Choose is back!” said the announcer, as the show returned from the commercial break. “Thank you for watching our special Halloween episode, brought to you by our special sponsor, Frank ‘n’ Stein’s new monster sandwiches, which come with three times the meat and toppings. Now, let’s join Roger as he tries to make his choice.”
The camera panned over to Roger sitting on a stool on one side of the stage. On the other side of the stage, three women dressed as witches sat on stools, their heads lowered meekly and their hands clasped tightly in their laps in nervous anticipation.
“Now, then, Roger,” said the show’s host as he walked up to the middle of the stage and faced the young man. “You’ve had your chance to question the three contestants and you’ve had some time to think over their responses. The time has finally come to make your decision. Now tell us who the lucky winner of a date with you will be. Which witch will you choose?”
Roger looked from one witch to the next as the studio audience waited with bated breath for his answer. The three contestants each wrung their hands nervously as they awaited his answer.
“I choose…” Roger finally said, dragging his answer out and increasing the tension in the air. “I choose….witch number 3!”
Joyful music played and black and orange confetti fell from the ceiling. Witch number 3 jumped up from her stool and shook hands with the other two contestants, then walked over to join Roger and the host at center stage while the other two witches applauded her.
As Roger and his date shook hands in greeting the host congratulated them and wished them luck on their date, then ended the episode by facing the camera and saying, “Well, that’s our show for today. Thank you all for watching, and happy Halloween!”
