** From a round of ''Call My Bluff'':

* ArtifactTitle: The title was originally meant to echo ''Radio/ImSorryIllReadThatAgain'', but since ''Clue'' has outlived its parent show by decades, a lot more people know about ''Clue'' than ''ISIRTA''. Also, the subtitle "the antidote to panel games" doesn't make as much sense now as it used to -- back when it was created, there were way more 'serious' panel games on the BBC, rather than the generally comic tone [[{{QI}} of]] [[NeverMindTheBuzzcocks those]] [[MockTheWeek played]] [[Series/WouldILieToYou nowadays]]. Graeme once jokingly suggested to change it to "[[FollowTheLeader the template for panel games]]".

** Also, there was a one-off round called ''BlatantLies''. Tim, with Phill Jupitus on his team, said "[[TakeThat I never miss]] ''NeverMindTheBuzzcocks''...", to which Phill responded "[[TakeThat I love]] ''Series/TheGoodies''..."

The future of the show was in doubt following Lyttelton's death in 2008, although Series 51 was aired in mid-2009 with StephenFry, Jack Dee, and Rob Brydon [[GuestHost taking over the chair for two episodes]] each. The show returned to its regular schedule with Dee chairing every episode later that year. Although it has not been definitively stated that he is the full-time replacement, Dee has chaired every series since.

* CountryMatters: StephenFry's alternate definition of "countryside" is the best-remembered, but there are plenty of other instances as part of the show's long history of GettingCrapPastTheRadar...

* CurseCutShort: In a 'General Knowledge Quiz' round where Humph gives the answers and the team supply the questions, StephenFry responds to 'Scrape the flesh roughly with the teeth' by saying 'How do you not give a bl-... I can't say that.'

* LyricalTic: The improvised blues songs were always filled with cries of "Yeah, man" or "tell it like it is" or "whoa" or anything else appropriate, fitting in with the scratchy-gravelly, 'deep American South' voices they adopted. When StephenFry was once filling in for Graeme, his immaculately clean voice made this complicated, so he simply said "[[UnsoundEffect various American noises from the back of my throat]]".

* ActorAllusion: In a round of ''Karaokey-Cokey'', the audience were given ''[[Series/TheGoodies The Funky Gibbon]]'' to hum. About three seconds in, Tim gets it and bursts out laughing.
** A few panellists have also been tasked with accompanying themselves in ''Pick-Up Song'', such as Tony Hawks singing along to ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAIOzM7SsMo Stutter Rap]]'' and Barry singing along to his cover of ''The Purple People Eater''.



* {{Defictionalization}}: [[http://www.nomic.net/deadgames/mornington/dunx/ Mornington Nomic]] is an attempt to construct an actual, playable version of "Mornington Crescent".



* NoBudget: Mentioned in a round of ''Word For Word''. Paul Merton buzzed Barry and Graeme, and Humph initially overruled his challenge, saying that they only had one buzzer and that was with Tim and Paul. He then says "...oh, thank you, Paul" as footsteps are heard, and then Graeme says "For those of you listening in stereo -- it's over here now!" Later, when Barry challenges Tim and Paul, Paul says "we'd better have the buzzer back then, hadn't we?" and footsteps are heard again.
-->'''Paul:''' [[LampshadeHanging You may be sitting at home, wondering where your license money goes...]]
** There's also a round called NoBudget, where the panellists have to think up "cut-price" version of well-known media, such as ''[[Literature/WutheringHeights Wuthering Hillocks]]'' or ''[[SherlockHolmes The Chihuahua of the Baskervilles]]''.



* ThrowItIn: Humph would occasionally misread something, and the improvisation by the panellists in response to this would usually be thrown in.
** In another episode, Jack misread "Tobacconist's Film Club" as "Tobogganist's Film Club", before Graeme pointed out his mistake. The round turned into a mix of smoking puns and winter sports puns.
** The sound once dropped significantly in the middle of a joke. Jack asked "Did the sound just drop then, on that?", and got answers of "Yes" from the panel and some of the audience.
-->'''Jack:''' Oh good. I like to make sure, because otherwise [[BlackComedy Barry thinks he's having a stroke.]]
-->'''Barry:''' I wish...

Added DiffLines:

* [[invoked]]DudeNotFunny: In one episode, Humph messes up one of his lines. The cast respond to it by pretending to treat him like a doddering old man. The audience generally reacts with laughter, but when Barry [[BlackComedy rubs it in]] by saying "Your trumpet went very well at the auction!", there's a pretty huge audience groan to signify he's gone too far.
