* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uK8ZLAmliA "Admiral (Blank)" incident]].
** It starts off innocuously enough with Brett being the contestant's first selection: Admiral (Richard Evelyn) Byrd. The contestant then selects Ricahrd...
--->'''Richard:''' Present! What did you say?\\
'''Gene:''' I said "Admiral (blank)".\\
'''Richard:''' That's very good. Anything else you want to say to me?
** Having known Richard long enough to know his patterns, Gene suggests Richard has drawn a blank, but demands an answer immediately. However, Richard rebuts Gene with this:
--->'''Richard:''' I can give you a million of them--[[Music/PaulMcCartney Halsey]], Perry, I can give you all those. I'm trying to think of a good one. Admiral... [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Admiral_(electrical_appliances) color television!]] Might be a winner. Don't think I've ever drawn a blank.\\
'''Gene:''' Now, you kidding me? Is that your answer, "Admiral color television"?\\
'''Richard:''' I happen to think that Byrd is the winning answer, so I'm now giving another choice.
** The contestant selects Charles last, whose response, ''The Admiral & the Lady'', draws boos from the audience. Having heard the three choices, "Byrd" is the one selected. Richard wants the contestant to remember what he told her, as his face shows nervousness. The $100 response: "Halsey."
--->'''Richard:''' Didn't I mention him? Worth every penny.
** The $250 response: "Byrd", which scores a match. Things then go haywire.
--->'''Gene:''' All right, audience, what do you think is under the big one?\\
'''Audience:''' (in unison) TV!\\
'''Gene:''' Admiral TV? Now, don't embarrass me! I don't want Richard to be right on this thing.
** Richard puts up a dollar's wager that "TV" winds up being the top answer. The $500 reveal is delayed, mainly because Gene's giving stagehand Earl time to change the top response if it's TV--which happens to be the $500 audience response.
--->'''Gene:''' EARL! YOU'RE FIRED! Pick up your hammer and your saw and your nails, and get out of here, Earl!\\
'''Richard:''' Earl! ''(gives Earl the dollar he had wagered)'' God bless you, my boy!

* On one of the Bert Convy pilots for the 1990's revival, Teri Copley becomes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9B5_uHTeg0 hesitant to show her answer]] for something cannibals would bob for instead of apples, right after [[Series/NightCourt Marsha Warfield]] answered the same question with "boobs".[[note]]{For the record, her answer was "balls", [[DontExplainTheJoke as in testicles]].}[[/note]] While this clip did end up getting into a blooper special, the entire pilot was played by GSN during a special Christmas Day marathon in 2012.
