YMMV: Room 101
  • Dude, Not Funny!: There was a media fallout after two guests in swift succession put countries into Room 101: Des Lynam put in France ("I was going to do America, but then I remembered they came up with Sergeant Bilko") and Anne Robinson put in Wales. (In Robinson's case, the controversy came about because according to Merton, he took every guest to lunch with him to discuss their choices before the recording; Robinson was the only guest who declined the offer, hence he had no idea it was going to come up.)
    • Fay Ripley's nomination of shy people clearly did not win her much sympathy with the audience, and Paul was also curious to know what exactly she found objectionable about shyness.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment / Tearjerker: The late radio DJ John Peel nominated Death itself, leading to a light-hearted discussion of the ways he thought he might go, plus his recollection that he had recently passed the age his father had died at. All now quite poignant as he died of a heart attack two years after the show aired.
