In the first panel round, Peter started to ask Amy her question, Amy resistantly replied with "No!". This is reminiscent of Julia Sweeney's yelling of "No!" when she was asked a panel question about sports on the 2009-10-31 show.

During Amy's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, not soon after Peter finished asking one of the questions, the audience started yelling the answer, "alcohol". This lead to Peter responding with "Come on!". Amy did get a bell ding for answering with "alcohol(?)".

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a way in which Patrick Swayze's legacy still guides us, Not My Job about Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be next for rats after they've been cleared of causing the plague?
During the second panel round, Adam Felber enthusiastically and confidently answered "selfie!" for his answer. So much so, that it stunned Peter Sagal and yelled out "Yes!", which caused Bill Kurtis to ring the bell (even though it was not the correct answer) and Adam responding with "What?!?".

All three panelists were tied with three points each at the beginning of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round.
