Helen Hong answered her 8th Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "thongs". Peter Sagal accepted the answer, as the correct answer was "wearing only their underwear".
For Maeve Higgin's third Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, she answered "weather" which Peter Sagal accepted. The correct answer was "high temperatures". For Maeve's fourth Lightning question, Bobcat Goldthwait helped her by whispering "BTS" but Maeve thought he was whispering "PTS". Bobcat whispered "BTS" a little clearer, which Maeve gave as her answer.
