Actor Allusion: Panellists will often be given subjects which in some way refer to their careers outside Just a Minute, whether directly or indirectly. For example, Kenneth Williams, when given the subject of "Julius Caesar", took the obvious bait to quote his famous line "Infamy! They've all got it in for me!" from Carry On Cleo, to huge audience applause.note Clement Freud promptly buzzed him for repetition of "infamy".
Missing Episode: Ten early episodes (six from 1968, three from 1969, and the Christmas 1974 episode) have no known surviving recordings. Additionally, most episodes from before 1990 only exist in the Transcription Services editions for international broadcast (The BBC junked most of their original tapes, but The ABC have a nearly complete set of TS tapes), trimmed by around three or four minutes each and sometimes with rounds spliced from other episodes featuring the same panel.
