* The end of the episode in which Richard O'Brien was a guest, in which the whole cast re-enacted the '[[TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Time Warp]]'...including Adam Hills stripping on-camera at the end of it all, absolutely deadpan, to reveal Frank'N'Furter's corset, frilly knickers, fishnets and heels. This was then one-upped in the next year's Deleted Scenes and Rude Bits special by Myf Warhurst blandly revealing the extent of Adam Hills' costume's, erm, deficiencies...
* "Two Little Words" (in which two players must use one word each to describe a singer or band to the other who must identify them) often has hilarious results, often due to one player not building off the first's word (such as Andy Lee suggesting "Dreaming" for {{REM}} - [[GeniusBonus appropriate]] but not the most helpful when Alan's word was "Michael"). It's even better when the contestant gets it right anyway - case in point, Ella Hooper using the clues "Catholic" and "Boobs" to guess {{Music/Madonna}}.
** Alan and Anh Do managing to turn {{Oasis}} into 'Arsehole Gallagher'.
** Alan and Greg Fleet turning MassiveAttack into 'Huge violation'.

* Adam showing the audience real boxes of fan-made cereals: [[YeahYeahYeahs Karen O's]] and [[SteveMillerBand Steve Miller Bran]]. He and Frank Woodley then came up with a couple more: Hall and Quick Oats, and Special KC and the Sunshine Band.

* Ben Mingay [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCtUuVu-ueo doing Substitute]] using a children's book called ''Digit Dick and the Tasmanian Devil''. The audience lost it, especially when he did a really very good impression of KateBush as he sang 'Wuthering Heights'.

** Tim Minchin did something similar- he played the 'Adam Hillsong', while Adam lay across the piano.

** Tim Minchin did something similar- he played the 'Adam Hillsong', while Adam lay across the piano. The best part is Adam's LamePunReaction as he realises the song is building up to an "Adam's apple" joke.


Added DiffLines:

* In one episode during "Know Your Product", Jason Byrne starts taking notes on things that he's learned that round. When someone asks if he's going to be doing that all episode, he answers, "Well yeah, there'll be questions at the end."

Added DiffLines:

** To take the show out, they played the video for David Hasselhoff's cover of 'Jump In My Car'. When the video got to the bit where the girl decides to get in, the entire panel was screaming 'Don't get in the car!' at her.

* During Josh Earl's first episode as host, he goes off on a tangeant about Brian Johnson replacing Bon Scott as frontman of Music/{{ACDC}}. "Can you imagine the pressure that Brian must have been under replacing someone so beloved by Australia after seven years? [[SarcasmMode I can't even begin to imagine what that would be like...]]"
* Another from the new series: a new round was introduced where each team is given a fridge covered in word magnets, said magnets being the titles of four songs jumbled up, and a certain team member must unjumble them with help from their teammates. The songs on Adam's team's fridge included XTC's 'Love On A Farmboy's Wages', Diesel's 'Tip Of My Tongue' and Midnight Oil's 'Put Down That Weapon', so naturally, Adam instantly called out 'Put that farmboy's weapon on my tongue!'
* On one round of Look What They've Done To My Song, Ma, a U2 tribute band did a song by TheWiggles... so at the end of the show, the Wiggles and Captain Feathersword performed "Angel of Harlem".
