On 16 April 2009, two years after his retirement from hosting the show and passing the torch to Drew Carey, Bob Barker made a special guest appearance and returned to the stage during the Showcase Showdown portion of the show, in order to help promote his recent autobiography "Priceless Memories". The prizes of both showcases contained a theme on places where one could read his book.
A fortune in fabulous prizes may go to these people today if they know when The Price is Right. Sandy Florinar, stand up. Paul Levine, stand up. Connie Dunnall, stand up. Myra Carter, stand up; and all four of you, come on down. You're the first ...

If a contestant won the right to a bonus spin in a Showcase Showdown (spinning the large wheel), Bob Barker always warned the contestant that the wheel had to make at least one revolution during the bonus spin or "it doesn't count and you don't get to spin again."
