* DoWellButNotPerfect: As explained above, this was the only way to win the full amount on ''$20,000'' - since your first attempt was for $10,000, your second for $15,000, and your third on for $20,000 - and a win meant retirement - you ''had'' to lose in the Winners' Circle twice to play for $20,000.

** Mystery 7 was originally its own category (always in the bottom-right slot, using the same font as the others), but teams almost always chose it first. On November 7, 1983, it was given its own unique logo, and on April 23, 1984 it was changed to being a "behind-the-category" bonus (like the 7-11).

** Other times, the receiving contestant gave the correct answer to the last box on the buzzer the ruling in such a case is that if the "essence" of the answer came before the buzzer, it's a win. It resulted in a win on "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LAvUcPEwf8 Things made of flannel]]" in one episode, but didn't pan out on "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86R8ZMeZgQg Things with a strap]]" in another.

** On one early episode of ''10,000'', Barbara Feldon was faced with the box "[[Creator/ElizabethTaylor Liz's]] Husbands". She spent nearly half the timer listing off all of them several times, but the contestant still never got it.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZ2wT7eCMKQ In this game]] from 1983, Harry Anderson breezed through the first five boxes of the Winner's Circle, but instantly got buzzed on the last box with nearly 30 seconds to spare. As a consolation, Dick let him play the box anyway.
