The Bluff the Listener contestant noted that he was calling from his sister's bathroom and that lead to an interesting exchange with Peter and Paula.
Peter had a little bit of trouble with saying "harsher sanctions" during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, in which Paula answered the question in the same way that Peter's tongue-tied manner. Peter then said, "I don't know if I'm going to give you that point."
At the end of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, everyone was shocked that Tom Bodett beat Roxanne Roberts and I think Tom said something like "that never happens". In fact, Tom has outscored Roxanne three times in 2009. Each time, Roxanne had 14 points while Tom had 18 (2009-03-07), 15 (2009-08-08) and 16 (2009-10-10) points.

The audience led Nick Pearson to choose the wrong answer for the third question during the Not My Job round. After Carl said that Nick did not answer enough questions correctly to win, Peter had the audience say "I'm sorry" to Nick all at once.
In the usual Mo Rocca fashion, Mo spent about a minute trying to figure out an answer for one of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions and ended up answering it correctly.
