The listener contestant for the Bluff the Listener segment disliked Spirit Airlines and initially chose Maeve Higgins' story to Peter Sagal's disbelief. After Peter asked the listener if she wanted to stick with Maeve's story, she said "It can't be Spirit" and chose Roy Blount Jr.'s story; which, was the correct story.
Maeve answered her third Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "Dollars" and Peter enthusiastically accepted the answer as being close enough to "inflation". Peter also enthusiastically accepted Maeve's answer of "baseball" for her fourth Lightning question as being close enough to "Cy Young Award".
When Peter asked Bill Kurtis how Roy did answering the Lightning questions, Bill said, "Roy is the champion this week" without stating how many questions Roy answered correctly or the Roy's total score. Roy's scoring is based on the questions that made it into the edited version of the show, in which Roy answered five correct and two incorrect.
