** '''You'd Expect''': If she can't figure out FANCY THAT as the answer that she would at least come up with THAT as the second word.

** On February 1, 2008, a team solved SHOPPING SPREE immediately upon receiving their turn when consonants were worth $6,000 apiece and the only consonants remaining were the three P's. Although they were in the lead anyway, they still passed up a free ''$18,000''.
* Also during the Speed-Up, contestants who obviously know the puzzle when it's not their turn, then upon receiving their turn, call a consonant that appears only once when there are multiples elsewhere. Usually, this is due to eager contestants pouncing on their potential round win by calling the first unrevealed consonant when reading the puzzle out in order.
** On February 14, 2013, with the puzzle appropriately being WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE? and consonants worth $6,000 each, the yellow team's turn comes and the wife confidently calls W and solves. About two seconds later, she yells, "I should've got the L!". They finish in second by about $2,600.

** January 25, 2016 (Teen Best Friends): The yellow team receives control and asks to solve. Pat firmly suggests calling a letter first. Knowing the puzzle is SECURITY GUARD and with S___R_T_ G__R_ revealed, they call '''E''', the first unrevealed letter overall. Pat dryly responds "Okay" and the team solves for the house minimum, though they still won the game by a landslide and went on to win the Bonus Round.

** '''To Be Fair''': The song was obviously before the contestant's time. Given that the show's song puzzles (with rare exception) [[TwoDecadesBehind always date to the 1980's or earlier]], moments like this are bound to happen as TheNewTens progress.

** A bizarre exception was the first Toss-Up on September 19, 2008. FINE WINE, under the category Rhyme Time, had the W as the last remaining letter that had not been revealed (the answer could have easily been FINE LINE among other things).

* On modern-day episodes, ringing in on the $1,000 Toss-Up and making a guess that has nothing to do with the week's theme. For example, if the theme is "America's Game" and the puzzle is B_____ CREAM PIE, the answer is much more likely be BOSTON CREAM PIE rather than the also-fitting BANANA CREAM PIE. The other two Toss-Ups are usually unrelated.

* Contestants who shout the answer to a Toss-Up puzzle without ringing in first. Typically when this happens, another contestant will ring in with the answer they just heard.
