* 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!

* One unaired moment had Gene committing a FreudianSlip when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmPB0MSZ5t0 introducing contestant Karen Lesko]]:

* July 10, 2016: In the Head-to-Head, the contestant had to exactly match with Rosie O'Donnell with "Spare _____". After discussing with [[Music/FallOutBoy Pete Wentz]], Rosie locked-in her answer. When contestant guessed "Tire", Pete immediately pumped up his arms and shouted "'''''[[BigYes YEAH!]]'''''" well before Rosie could reveal what she wrote. Realizing what he just did, he then said, "[[LittleNo No,]]" and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere tried to walk off the stage]] before Rosie had him reveal the card for her. Seriously, the look of embarrassment on his face is ''priceless''.
