Notes
Another uncommon instance in which all three panelists answered six Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correctly. The last occurance seems to have occurred during the 2010-06-04 show, then the 2009-09-12 show before that. While some might consider this devilish, but the proper instance would be the panelists that go first and last each get six questions correct and the other panelist only gets one correct. Why? Search for "616" on this site.

Notes
In the second panelist round in which a discussion about daddy baby showers lead to Mo Rocca saying that having a Hula dancer in the same room as a mother giving birth would be a relaxing agent. Luke Burbank came back asking if that would be something that would be blogged on "MoRoccaTheWorldsWorstObstetrician.net". Guess what, I have registered that domain and it now redirects to this site. :)
