---> '''Sue Perkins:''' ''(taking notes)'' How do you spell 'electron'?
--->''' Ross Noble:''' Is it a wine glass, or more of a tumbler? (Brian was talking about causality using smashing a glass as an allegory.)
** Even though he's also an actor and comedian, Ben Miller decided to rely mainly on his PhD in quantum physics in the episode "The Future," much to his fellow panelists' dismay.

Standing for "Quite Interesting", the show is hosted by Creator/StephenFry and always includes [[Series/JonathanCreek Alan Davies]] on the panel. Apart from Davies, the panel varies from week to week, but there are a number of recurring guests on (the pool of frequent guests has changed over time but currently includes Jo Brand, BillBailey, Creator/JimmyCarr, [[Series/TopGear Jeremy Clarkson]], [[NeverMindTheBuzzcocks Phill Jupitus]], DavidMitchell, Creator/RossNoble, Sue Perkins and Sarah Millican). While the panel is mainly composed of comedians, they will have other famous people on like Sir Terry Wogan, [[Literature/CompleteWorldKnowledge John Hodgman]], Creator/BrianBlessed, [[Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway Greg Proops]], Creator/DavidTennant, Creator/DanielRadcliffe, [[Literature/BadScience Dr. Ben Goldacre]], and Creator/CarrieFisher.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Averted. Of all the BBC PanelGames, possibly bar ''MockTheWeek'', this one draws from one of the smallest pools of repeat guests. This is probably due to not having any fixed "theme" to the show, so they're unable to pluck participants from the worlds of [[HaveIGotNewsForYou politics and media]], [[NeverMindTheBuzzcocks music]], [[Series/AQuestionOfSport or sport]], and mostly makes do with a limited number of comedians. On the plus side, this gives the show something of a dinner-party feel, with the old favourites who banter well together making regular appearances.

*** Kestrels. (This is actually one of Phill's personal running gags, popping up on ''NeverMindTheBuzzcocks'' and other places, but it seems to have originated on QI, on the episode 'Drinks'.)
