* OhCrap: Any time a player realises they've talked themselves into a repetition but it's too late to change tack or rephrase to avoid it:
-->"I started the morning in Mexico City, then flew out across the Gulf of [OhCrap] Mexico..." %%I can't remember who this was, can someone fill it in

* NiceGuy: Nicholas is always hugely complimentary to all the panellists (and gets [[TakeThat viciously lampooned]] for it by Jack Dee in the "Just A Minim" rounds of rival show ''Radio/ImSorryIHaventAClue''). However, there is the occasional instance where he returns their affectionate ribbing, or when things start getting...
* NoJustNoReaction: From the BBC TV series, on the topic of the host himself.
--> '''Sue Perkins''': There is nothing so erotic as the sight of Nicholas Parsons...
--> ''[Paul Merton [[YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe holds down the buzzer]], shaking his head and mouthing "no"]''
--> '''Sue Perkins''': Intervention! Intervention! ...I've done it again Paul, I've done it again.
--> ''[Paul nods, as Sue facepalms.]''
--> '''Paul Merton''': There are limits, aren't there.
** It's made even funnier if you know that Sue is actually a lesbian.

* LoopholeAbuse: There's actually nothing stopping you from buzzing during your own time, challenging yourself for a mistake before anyone else can, and winning a point ''whether the challenge is accepted or not''. This is only allowed [[RuleOfFunny because it's funny when it happens]], and no-one takes the game seriously enough to really abuse it.
** If somebody gets the subject with only a few seconds remaining, a common tactic is to just repeat the subject on the card over and over again before the whistle goes.

* SeriousBusiness: The show made a few headlines in the late noughties with complaints that there were too many challenges for repeating very small words or very brief hesitations, with proposals for rule changes such as deducting points for wrong challenges. Such changes were ultimately not implemented but it was noted that people stopped buzzing so much in episodes produced after the stories.

* AmbiguousSyntax: A sometime tactic of Paul Merton, usually just to get a laugh:
-->[''The subject is "mutton dressed as lamb", and Sue Perkins has just resumed a description of such a person'']
-->'''Sue Perkins''': Boobs like spacehoppers-- [''buzz'']
-->'''Paul''': That's not true, boobs don't like spacehoppers! They see them as rivals!

* MemeticSexGod: In-universe, a RunningGag is for players (especially female ones) to imply that Nicholas is this [[HiddenDepths when the cameras aren't running]]. He played this up himself when he guest hosted ''HaveIGotNewsForYou''. [[invoked]]
