Both Loudon Wainwright III and his son, Rufus Wainwright (who was the Not My Job guest for the 2009-11-14 show), answered two Not My Job questions correctly.
In the edited version of the show, Mike Birbiglia's Lightning Fill in the Black round only included six questions, with four answered correctly. During Adam Felber's round, he coasted after answering four questions correctly, leading to a three-way tie.
Richard Lewis interrupted Peter Sagal several times when Peter was trying to read his introduction, which lead to hilarity. Also, while Richard Lewis was on the phone, his breathing into the phone was quite noticeable and that lead to a bit of laughing and a good amount of bantering.
Bill Kurtis accepted Brian Babylon's answer of "atmosphere" for a Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question which had the appropriate answer of "ozone layer". The edited version of the show only included six Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions for Brian, in which he answered two correctly. The third answer would have been for one of the two questions that got edited out.
I got a chance to go to the show in Seattle. I participated in the audience's chanting of "Luuuuuuke" when Luke Burbank was introduced or mentioned.
Due to the pending results of the Scottish independence vote as of taping, they recorded two versions of the first Who's Bill This Time? question, one version for each potential outcome in case the vote when the other direction.
There was a lot of jokes and references made during the taping surrounding the understanding of what makes up the United Kingdom, which was started by Paula's mention of not understanding what the United Kingdom is. Some of those jokes and references were cut out in the edited version of the show.
Edited out of the show was a joke that Paula Poundstone made about naming a front-facing fanny pack a "dicky pack".
