The show was recorded remotely. While Gina Brillon was answering questions during Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank, Mo Rocca not-so-quietly muttered answers either a little too late or it wasn't the correct answer. Peter Sagal told Mo that if Mo was going to mutter an answer that it should be the correct one.
