Notes

Another instance in which the Bagnoli surname was used in Mo's bluff. Peter pronounced the name of the "Kokomo" Indiana Indian tribe differently than Mo Rocca used in his bluff as "KOH-koh-mo", instead of "Kuh-koh-MO". Mo was extremely quick to correct Peter.

The audience tried to help out Michele with the second Not My Job question by yelling out "C", which Michele chose. Both the audience and Michele were wrong, the correct answer was "B".

During the second panel round, Mo asked, kind of forcibly, "Well, how the heck does it work?" when discussing about 3D pizza printers. This lead to a nice bit of laughter from Adam. Mo also made a really good/bad pun by saying "it's a place for you can Czech (check) each other out", as the city of Prague is in the Czech Republic.

The listener contestant went into another voice when completing the first Listener Limerick. Hilarity ensued.

When Bill Kurtis was about to say how many questions Adam needs to answer correctly to win, Mo said "Oh God, please lose...". Adam laughed and said something like "That's so wrong(?)" After answering six correct, Adam said that he was rooting for Mo, then Faith.
