Mo Rocca was in great form for the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, particularly after Peter asked Bill Kurtis if Mo did well enough to win. Bill Kurtis simply answered, "No." At which, Mo said that Bill should have built up the suspense and then said Carl would normally have said, though in a semi-whiny manner: "He needed five correct answers, but he only had four. So, the winner this week is Jessi Klein."
During the first panel round, Faith Salie said "We'll turn the light off for you" as a twist on the Motel 6 tagline: "We'll leave the light on for you"; which, was coined by Tom Bodett.
All three of the choices for the third Not My Job question were correct.
Six of the eight Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions asked to Paula Poundstone made it into the edited version of the show. Of those six questions, Paula answered four correct and two incorrect. Bill Kurtis said that Paula answered five correct; which, means that the fifth one would have been one of the two questions that were edited out.
