Bill Kurtis almost said the full answer for the third limerick, but stopped himself after saying the first part of the word. The listener did have the correct answer and Bill took the credit for the third limerick when he announced how many the listener got correct.
At the end of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Bill Kurtis stated that it was the first time that the round ended in a three-way tie under his watch. In fact, there have previously been two shows that ended with panelists being in a three-way tie with Bill Kurtis as scorekeeper (2012-08-18, which Paula Poundstone was one of the panelists, and 2014-09-06).
Peter Sagal pronunciation of their (WBEZ's) CFO's last name, Nguyen, during the credits was actually pretty darn close to the proper pronunciation for once.
During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Faith Salie provided an answer of "Katie Perry songs" for her second question of the round. Initially, Peter and Bill didn't give her a point, but did so after Faith listed the other songs that were in fact used and Peter was corrected.
In the edited version of the show, Faith was asked five of the eight questions and her fifth correct answer would have come from one of the three questions that were cut out.
