Notes
During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Roy Blount Jr. was asked which science fiction series did Gene Roddenberry create and Majel Barrett was in, Roy answered "Star Wars" in which Peter said that the answer was correct. In fact, the correct answer is Star Trek, which Carl corrected when stating Roy's score. Peter then asked if Carl was a dork, to which Carl sheepishly replied, "I guess?".
