** In the same episode, at around the halfway mark the questions proceed through such topics as ''WesternAnimation/TheClangers'', ''Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men'', the "Crazy Frog" ringtone, Geordie accents, and Radio/TerryWogan and his televised 33-yard putt at Gleneagles. Familiar topics to the British panellists (Alan, Phill Jupitus, and Jonathan Ross), but rather alien to the panel's resident American, Rich Hall. After sitting in silence for nearly ten minutes, he hits his buzzer (which plays a ''Bill and Ben''-esque "Flobbadobbadob!"):

* When Stephen Fry announced the Swedish version, he said that he knew enough Swedish to "order from a hotel room". Johan Wester, the Swedish host, asked him to say something to the Swedish fans. He proceeded to say: "Ursäkta, den get ni sände till mitt rum har spruckit, och ni glömde vispgrädden. Gräsklippare!"[[note]]Sorry, but the goat you sent to my room has ruptured, and you forgot the whipped cream. Lawnmower![[/note]]

-->'''DavidMitchell''': What a weird, unsettling thing to discover that would be. In the context of the credit crunch and everything, suddenly to discover that Rodney Bewes was immortal... I mean, can you imagine on the news them going [serious voice] "And today it emerged that actor Rodney Bewes has been alive for as long as time"?
** In the same episode: DavidMitchell's [[http://youtu.be/NmV8MyYezlk response]] to the vicious double-bluff pulled by Stephen, to compensate for the panelists' increasing [[GenreSavvy knowledge of how the show works]].
