* ForegoneConclusion: In "Knowledge", Stephen explains that in deference to the concept of the half-life of facts, the panelists will be awarded points based on the likelihood of their seemingly erroneous answers given in previous episodes having since been proven correct. Jimmy Carr immediately congratulates Alan on winning, which proves to be an astute prediction: Alan leads the final scores by almost 700 points.

** Subverted in "Lucky Losers", where Stephen declares that the panelist with the ''lowest'' score shall win, causing Danny Baker to congratulate Alan in advance. However, thanks to the producers conjuring up a massive "[[RunningGag Blue Whale]]" bonus for giving that as a right answer, Alan ends up with the highest score by a considerable amount.

* AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering: Non-sequitur answers and strange associations abound. Alan is usually good for these, e.g. observing that sperm can survive for several hours outside the body -- "so you should leave the telly on if you're going out."

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: The forfeit answers. They not only include commonly held fallacies, but predictable jokes as well. These are often an episode's CrowningMomentOfFunny, and the source of much frustration for the panellists.
-->'''Stephen:''' What's eight poles wide and forty poles long?
-->'''Howard Goodall:''' "A regiment in the Polish Army?"
-->['''KLAXON''']
** Reached TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat levels in the XL version of the "Greats" episode, when Jo Brand uttered a particularly long forfeit phrase ''word for word'':
--->'''Stephen:''' Now, tell me about the Great Disappointment.\\
'''Jo:''' ''[buzzes]'' Have you been talking to my husband?\\
'''*KLAXON*''' [[AC:"have you been talking to my husband?"]]
** Phill Jupitus has been picked on a few times as well, his VerbalTic being part of the forfeit:
--->'''Stephen''': How long would it take you to bicycle from Land's End to the northernmost part of Britain?\\
'''Phill''': What, John O'Groats, you mean?\\
['''KLAXON''']: [[AC: what, john o'groats, you mean?]]\\
''[later]''\\
'''Stephen''': ...What was the name of the- the naturalist on board the ''Beagle''?\\
'''Phill''': Charles Darwin, you mean?\\
['''KLAXON''']: [[AC: what, charles darwin, you mean?]]\\
'''Phill''': Oh- ''FRY''!
*** Although on the third attempt a little later on in the same show (the question was which country worshipped jackal-headed dogs and the forfeit was "[[AC: what, egypt, you mean?]]") another panellist set it off instead.



* GonnaNeedMoreTrope: In "Kings", when Bill Bailey's crown falls over his head and gets stuck on his neck, Alan remarks that "We're gonna need a bigger king."

** Also happened in "Fingers and Fumbs" and "Hoaxes" (see KansasCityShuffle for the details).



* ItTastesLikeFeet:
** In an episode in the first series, Alan tells an anecdote about being given a chocolate bar by a nice old lady that turned out (after he'd eaten it) to be well past its use-by date, and "tasted like old ladies' cupboards". One of the other panellists requests reassurance that this isn't a euphemism.

* KansasCityShuffle / IKnowYouKnowIKnow: In the Series F episode "Fingers and Fumbs", [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcVAcxayiFM contestants lost 10 points every time they said "fuck", but could win them back by playing RockPaperScissors with Stephen.]] At the start of the episode, [[ChekhovsGun Stephen stated that you should play scissors in such a game, because your opponent expects you to play rock and will play paper]]. This led to a draw every time as both would play scissors, causing Alan to state "somebody play rock!". And then, in the fourth game, Phill Jupitus exchanged a significant look with Alan -- and played ''scissors'', beating Stephen who played paper. Then, in the last two games, Dara and Alan won... by playing ''rock'', Stephen having played scissors.

* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Setting Bill Bailey's buzzer to, yes, "Bill Bailey, Won't You Please Come Home". Alan provides the obligatory Lampshading.
** Even more amusing given that Bill (real name Mark) was given the nickname by his music teacher for being able to play the song very well on the guitar. Using it as his buzzer wasn't just an amusing reference, but a throwback to the reason he's even called that.

* ThePointsMeanNothing: Even the show's creators don't know how the scoring works -- they apparently hire a man to sit in a room and work it out, and no-one knows how he decides it. The placings can actually be quite important, especially if you're a fan of Alan Davies.
** That's true of the points related to the questions, but Stephen gives points for things that are "quite interesting". There is, supposedly, an actual formula or line-of-thought he uses to do so when awarding points, but no one has managed to figure out how exactly it works.
** A lot of this is due to things being cut in the edit, but the points still affecting the end result. It explains why in some episodes people have apparently done well but still lost -- they left a number of forfeits on the editing-room floor. And, of course, they can't re-record the ending to only include points scored in the edited version.

* {{Recut}}: ''QI XL'', a 40-minute version of the show, broadcast the following day.
** Something of an inversion of EditedForSyndication -- a lot of the apparent points meaning nothing (see below) is ironed out in some episodes by massive forfeits and/or correct answers which were dropped in the edit down to a half-hour; the long edit still drops points, however, and at least once dropped a forfeit (in "Health & Safety," when Alan says "you big gorilla, you," the klaxon can be heard coming in, but is not shown). One presumes that even more than this is normally cut. The repeats on Dave for Series F are exclusively showing ''QI XL'' and not the normal version (and in a few cases even got to air the XL version first because the BBC never bothered).
*** Although this might be because it allows them to stretch it to a full hour of broadcasting with [[MoneyDearBoy three internal ad breaks]] and a more traditional scheduling pattern, as opposed to other BBC shows the channel broadcasts, which remain unedited (save for a straight cut in the middle for one ad break), but as such take up a forty-minute slot. That being said, they're not doing the same for ''[[Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou Have I Got A Bit More News For You]]''

* [[invoked]]ScienceMarchesOn: In the 11th-series episode "Knowledge", the "How many moons are there?" question is discussed, as a lead in to a discussion of how what we believe to be true at this point in time can be proven false by new data in several years time. Stephen Fry pointed out that given the number of facts discussed on the show over the years that have been proved wrong since the episodes aired, Alan Davies and recurring panellists Jo Brand and Jimmy Carr, as well as the studio audience, had their scores from past years audited and were given overdue points. [[spoiler: As a result, although he hit several klaxons, Alan Davies came in first with over 600 points.]]

Standing for "Quite Interesting", the show is hosted by Sandi Toksvig (currently also hosting the revival of the quiz show ''Series/FifteenToOne''), who replaced original host Creator/StephenFry at the start of the "N" series. Each episode features four panelists, one of whom is always [[Series/JonathanCreek Alan Davies]]. The other panelists vary from week to week, but a number of recurring guests have appeared over the years. The pool of frequent guests has changed over time, but currently includes Jo Brand, Music/BillBailey, Creator/JimmyCarr, [[Series/TopGear Jeremy Clarkson]], [[Series/NevermindTheBuzzcocks Phill Jupitus]], Creator/DavidMitchell, Creator/RossNoble, Sue Perkins and Sarah Millican. While the panel is mainly composed of comedians, famous names in other fields have turned up, such as 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.
