*** At least one question was replaced due to a concern about what an answer referred to, although it has been seen on Website/YouTube. The question asked what James Bond does in a sexy way, to which the contestant replied, "Shoots his gun"; the audience began laughing uproariously as Harvey shook his head in mock disgust, figuring the contestant meant "ejaculates from his gun (i.e., "penis") when having sex with a woman."

** For his first two years on the program, Ray Combs didn't carry the handheld microphone he would use for most of the run. Early episodes also featured the family nameplates sliding away to reveal the families in the intro (much like the 1976-85 Dawson run), as well as a much louder and more jarring strike sound than most viewers woudld be used to later on (as well as different strike graphics).

to:

**The very first episode (as well as during the Louie Anderson era of the current run) did not display the strike graphic, if the contestant failed to give an answer on the board during the Face Off; only the strike sound was left intact.

* SelfDeprecation: A constant part of Ray Combs' hosting style, as he usually made fun of his own jokes and his height.

** During one season of the Combs-era Feud, when a contestant gave a wrong answer, Ray would give the contestant a hand-held sign with a red "X" strike symbol, which they would hold up for the rest of the question. This was later abandoned after a couple of months.

** Toward the end of the final round, Harvey usually sums up the situation to the current player: "Gotta be careful, you've got two strikes. If it's there, [you're still alive|you clear the board and win the game]; if it's not there, [other family] can steal and [win|play for sudden death]." If the team strikes out, he gives a similar summary to the other team: "There's [X] answers on the board. If it's there, your family steals, your family [wins the game|plays for sudden death]. If it's not there, [other family] wins the game." On the rare occasion that neither team can score enough points to win and thus the Sudden Death round is inevitable, he'll make some snarky comment instead.

** If a family was doing exceptionally poorly in Fast Money, Ray would often tell the second contestant, "You may be writing ''us'' a check."
