* June 9, 2017: Pat goes to [[LetsJustSeeWhatWouldHaveHappened reveal the location of the $1,000,000 envelope]] after a lost BonusRound. He then opens up an envelope, only to realize it's the wrong one -- so he clicks the bonus wheel over one envelope, only to realize it's ''still'' the wrong one. Cue him {{face palm}}ing, throwing the envelopes on the wheel, and then finally spinning it again to pick the right one.

* November 11, 1999: The goofball who thought A GROUP OF PILL-PUSHERS was the answer to the puzzle [[WhatAnIdiot even though he just said the letter P]]. A stunned Pat stayed silent for a few seconds, then screamed "[[WhatTheHellPlayer This is]] ''WheelOfFortune'', [[WhatTheHellPlayer Joe!!!]]" Later, with only the vowels missing, another contestant mis-solved as A GROUP OF WILL-WISHES before the third contestant finally solved A GROUP OF WELL-WISHERS. Finally, after congratulating the winner, Pat walked over to Joe and pretended to punch him while remarking "Don't make me come over there!"

* April 30, 2014:
** Learning-disabled contestant Trent Girone is stated to be a huge fan of the show (having watched it since he was 2 years old), so Pat challenges him to name a retired category. This exchange ensues:
-->''Trent:'' Uh, please promise you won't cringe, Pat? ''[[TheScrappy Megaword!]]'' (while saying that, Trent flails his arms around)
-->''Pat:'' (Laughs for a few seconds) Megaword, I remember that, it the worst category we ever- we would take a very long and obscure word and that was the puzzle, and [[OldShame I hated every minute of it]].
