Drew Carey had a bit of fun with saying that he was a soccer fan while Peter Sagal was not. This is in reference to the several times that Peter has mocked soccer, the World Cup and during the Not My Job segment with Steven Cohen on 2006-05-27. Drew is also a co-owner of the MLS team Seattle Sounders FC.

Drew Carey had Tom Bodett do the "We'll leave your head on for you" a la Motel 6 ads. Tom then said, "Deep Six Morgue Hotel: We'll leave your head on for you".

All three panelists each answered six Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correctly. The last two times this has happened was 2009-09-12 and 2012-04-14.
