* 1983: Shortly after Max became the host, a round took ''seven'' tries for anyone to give a right answer to "Name a famous Irishman". Some of the guesses were completely off the wall, such as Creator/BenjaminDisraeli, [[Disney/TheAristocats Thomas O'Malley]] and Creator/ErnestHemingway. (And even more humorously, this was also the "turkey" episode.)

** Ah, yes, the "Turkey" episode. Three Fast Money questions...one answer. Mr. Bob Johnson was the second member of his family to play. It's said that he may have overheard an answer in the first round ("chicken") and decided to [[IncrediblyLamePun wing it]]. Due to the audience response, he ran out of time after the fourth question (and his answer was a repeat of his partner's), leaving him with just 21 points for the third response:

* "Name a Creator/WilliamShakespeare play with someone's name in the title" already had "[[Theatre/{{Macbeth}} The Scottish Play]]" and "{{Hamlet}}" as the top two answers, and when Les came to one woman she answered "AMidsummerNightsDream" (mispronouncing it as "A Midsummer's Night Dream" to boot), getting no points. Les wondered aloud whether she had listened to the question, and she replied that "Summer's a girl's name," getting a FlatWhat from Les in response.

* In another final round, the contestant is faced with "Name something you do in a lift". She attempts to pass, only for Vernon to repeat the question (it was the last one), and she says, with barely a second to go, "[[ToiletHumour Wee]]". She cringes.
