Notes
On the 2006-02-25 show, Paula called Adam Felber "the Ken Jennings of the panel...". Well, in this case, Ken Jennings is now the Ken Jennings of the panel... at least in terms of actually being Ken Jennings. Peter noted that it was Ken Jennings's first time on the show, which is true in that it is Ken's first time being a panelist; but, Ken Jennings has been on the two twice as a Not My Job guest on 2006-02-25 and 2006-10-07. Deepak Chopra + Oprah Winfrey = Oprah Chopra. In the edited version of the show, it seemed that Amy had six Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions and answered five of them correctly Amy's sixth correct answer was probably edited out. Another case in which all three panelists had six correct answers.
