Sajak: I know which ruined a game more—the DH.
SI: How do you compare Sample to Vanna as a cohost?
Sajak: It's hard to find Billy a gown he won't trip on.
SI: Wheel of Fortune has been the top-rated syndicated show for 19 seasons. Is it the Yankees of game shows?
Sajak: Yes, except if I break down, our bullpen's thin. If the Yankees lose a part, they can buy a replacement.
SI: Who's a better manager—Merv Griffin, who hired you, or Joe Torre?
Sajak: Merv is an owner and a manager, so you'd have to fuse Torre and George Steinbrenner. That is an operation I don't want to be in the room for.
SI: Which is the more dangerous duo: Maddux and Glavine, or Pat and Vanna?
Sajak: Well, Pat and Vanna have more personality.
SI: Finally, can you give me any lovely parting gifts?
