* [[HarpoDoesSomethingFunny Groucho Says Something Funny]]: There is less of that than is popularly thought. While Groucho was of course free to think up quips as he could, the contestants were interviewed by the writers beforehand and prepared jokes and comments for Groucho to read on a hidden projection when he felt he couldn't improvise a good line. The beauty is how he still made it look so ad lib.

** '''1992-93:''' The couple that had won the most money was asked one last question. If they answered correctly, they chose one of three envelopes; two of these doubled their winnings, while the third awarded an additional $10,000.

* SecretWord: Some show tension revolved around whether a contestant would say the "secret word", a common word revealed to the audience at the show's outset. If a contestant said the word, a toy duck resembling Groucho with a mustache and eyeglasses, and with a cigar in its bill, descended from the ceiling to bring a $100 bill. Groucho sometimes slyly directed conversation to encourage the secret word to come up.

* ThatCameOutWrong: Groucho never ever let a unintentional double entendre by a contestant slip by without comment. Because of this, the audience developed an almost Pavlovian response, and would begin laughing whenever Groucho paused, often interpreting something racy he himself hadn't spotted.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Being a censor in charge of monitoring this show must have been one hell of a challenge, because Groucho would just throw up ''so many damn targets''. -->'''Groucho:''' '''' That won’t be easy.

* EditedForSyndication: Syndicated reruns were called "The Best of Groucho", with the NBC logo blurred or burned-out and the picture "blown up" to hide the sponsor logos. (Not to be confused with Summertime repeats [[NamesTheSame of the same name]], which had a new intro and commercials; at least one 1957 repeat had a unique Prom intro and every mention of [=DeSoto=] replaced by Prom.)
