Commemorative Speech[]

“Last Week, we lost the creator and the original host of Let’s Make a Deal, Mr. Monty Hall. Now we all know that Monty was a great host, but he was a great man as well in every single sense of the word. He was a philanthropist who raised hundreds of millions of dollars for charities, and even more important than his charitable work, he was a family man, he loved his family. Monty made everyone feel special and he was an inspiration to people that he would meet on the street, he was an inspiration to myself and everyone here on the set of Let’s Make a Deal. He would come by, he would visit us, we’d laugh, and it was absolute magic. He absolutely loved the show, this show which he created 54 years ago. So today, we are celebrating his memory with this episode and we are going to do, what we know what Monty would want us to do. We’re gonna have fun, we’re gonna make deals, and we’re gonna change lives. Monty we’re gonna celebrate your legacy, and this show is for you, thank you!” - Wayne Brady, (at the start of the Let’s Make a Deal Episode dated October 5, 2017)
