While reading the second question of the second Panel Round, Peter Sagal said "Australia" instead of "Antarctica". He would later say "Antarctica" while explaining the story. During the Listener Limerick Challenge, the panel assisted the listener contestant by saying "Shhh!" for the first limerick, meowing for the second, and whistling "Jingle Bells" for the third.
