** Doubles as a CMOA but also the fact that Peter Garrett guessed who it was right off the bat. His reasoning: How many bona fide big wig musos who lived in Melbourne would be willing and able to do something like that?

* On one episode, Adam decided to help out people who didn't know what "Nessun Dorma" is about by translating the lyrics as one of the guests, a professional opera singer, sang them. He translated them directly for the most part, and then randomly went into the chorus of [[SpiceGirls "Wannabe"]].

* 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.

* 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."
