In the edited version of the show, Amy Dickinson was asked six questions during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round and had answered five of them correctly. The sixth correct answer would have come from one of the two questions that were left out.

During Roy Blount Jr.'s Lightning round, he was given the clue of "Unforgettable" for the answer of Natalie Cole. Amy had fun with it and said "Forgettable" in a sing-songy manner.
