Paula Poundstone's bluff included a mention of Peter "Segal" of "Wait Wait... Why Do I Care?" and studies.

For the Paula's last question of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Paula answered "dog and dead", though the correct answer was "cat and dead". With some pressure, Bill Kurtis accepted Paula's answer. For one of Tom Bodett's Lightning round questions, Tom answered with "Pfiffer" while the correct answer was "Pfizer". Peter Sagal said it was close enough and accepted the answer.
