After the listener contestant chose Maeve Higgin's Bluff the Listener story, Peter Sagal stated that the listener was "the first person ever to choose one of Maeve's stories". Maeve's Bluff the Listener story was chosen 6 times over her previous 17 regular show appearances.

Maeve answered her fourth Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "iPads. iPods. iPhones". Although Peter and Bill will only allow the first response as the answer, Peter allowed Maeve's eventual answer of iPhones and she got points for it.
