* UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_iq5yzJ-Dk One elderly contestant]] had the secret that he was the only still-living person that witnessed Lincoln's assassination by John Wilkes Booth in 1865. He was five years old when it happened.

* ChewToy: If the crew had something sneaky planned, the "victim" was most likely Henry Morgan. For example, he would be sent on an exotic trip (which started the moment the live broadcast ended) such as a safari in Africa, or working as a hired hand on Roy Rogers' Dude Ranch. ** Or carrying a spear in that night's production in the Metropolitan Opera. Or the fact that he was going to play Santa for some needy kids...or [[TopCat Arnold Stang's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIZ0G5MrAfc secret on a Halloween episode that he used Henry's actual bedsheets for the ghost costume he's wearing.]]

* ObviousRulePatch: Early episodes had the panel question the contestant in two passes, each buzzer giving the contestant another $10. This was quickly changed to the "once around, $20 a buzzer" format.

* MissingEpisode: Until the creation of ''BlackAndWhiteOvernite'', the Winston-sponsored episodes were banned from airing on GSN due to said Winston logos being on-set. ** Two of the four 1976 episodes also seem to be MIA, although CBS quit erasing in September 1972. The premiere circulates among private collectors, and the finale exists on audio tape.

* RealLifeRelative: One episode with Jack Benny as guest also featured his daughter Joan on the panel, filling in for the vacationing Bill Cullen. ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZgTk6pReeM One episode]] featured Desi Arnaz as the guest and Creator/LucilleBall as a guest panelist. ** Jayne Meadows was often a panelist on both of Steve Allen's versions. ** In one episode, Groucho Marx was on the panel. Harpo was the guest, and even Groucho couldn't figure out his brother's secret: [[spoiler:It was actually Chico Marx dressed as Harpo.]] ** One episode had Bill's wife Ann Cullen join the panel to replace Betsy Palmer one week when she was appearing in a play out of state.
