Notes
Anthony Anderson chose "A" for the second Not My Job question and the audience yelled out "B". Anthony stuck with his answer of "A", which was not correct. "B" was the correct answer. After Peter Sagal read Aida Rodriguez's first Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, someone yelled out "budget" and Aida answered with "budget". After Peter Sagal read Adam Burke's first Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, it sounded like Aida whispered, out loud, "tax". Adam answered with "tax returns".

During the second panel round, Alonzo Bodden answered his question with "jet pack" and Peter Sagal said "I'm gonna give it to you, it's a jet pack". Hilarity ensued. When reading Hari Kondabolu's fifth Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, Peter Sagal said "CloudFire" instead of "CloudFlare".
