The listener contestant for the first Who's Carl This Time? round was a bit picky with how "Salisbury" is pronounced. The same listener was a bit miffed that she had to say "Slobodan Milosevic", stating that it "doesn't roll off of the Southern tongue". She did say it properly nonetheless. Paula Poundstone thought that Andrew Jackson was on the $10 instead of the $20.
The listener contestant for the Bluff the Listener round is the co-owner of Portland's Three Square Grill and Picklopolis.
When the listener contestant for the Who's Carl This Time? round couldn't figure out the answer to a question about Condoleezza Rice and asked for a hint, Mo Rocca sang "Blank-a-roni, the Secretary of State" (in tune of "Rice-a-Roni, A San Francisco Treat!"). Huge kudos to @Ojoya for tracking this one down for me!
During the Listener Limerick Challenge round when Peter was discussing the soccer/football matches between Muslims and LGBTs, Mo sang "everybody fatwah" to the tune of "Everybody Dance Now".
