  • 1991: A question round had David singing the lines to a song with a grocery item blanked out. One had "Go tell Aunt Rhody/The old gray (blank) is dead." Incorrect guesses of "mare" and "dog" prompt a rare What the Hell, Player? reaction from David.note

  • 1991: During one Three Right playing, one question had the slogan "Everybody's (blank) dipping." Instead of saying "Skippy", one contestant accidentally said "Skinny" and couldn't correct herself because she was so consumed with laughter. Another contestant did buzz in with the correct answer, and David even gave a sarcastic "Thank you!" in response.
