In game 3, the family pair was awarded the "C" question, but then the judges ruled it invalid, as someone in the audience shouted it out, and another "C" question was asked.
In game 2, when they ask for an "N" question, Bill starts to read an "A" until Peggy brings it to his attention.
Starting with this episode, the background is now light blue instead of gold.
This episode is the last one with the brown colored background. Beginning with the next episode, it'll be blue.
Bill asks a "U" question about unicorns only being able to be captured by virgins. He said he never heard that before, but that exact same question appeared on Show 81 (and he even made a joke about it)
Bill mentions its a birthday of someone special today, and the audience all yell "happy birthday Bill"
When Gloria loses, Bill doesn't have a copy of the home game handy. Someone tosses one his way, but misses, and another guy runs up and hands it to him.
Before the Gold Run, Bill pushes the button with his nose in hopes of changing Ed's luck.
In game 2, during an "O" question, Ed buzzes in, but the buzzer doesn't go off. Since neither of the family pair attempted to buzz in, they let Ed answer.
During game 1, Deb calls for a "G" question, but Bill doesn't have one in his question stack, so they go to a commercial break to fix the situation.
After a commercial in game 1, an audio clip of the theme song to George of the Jungle (a question Ed missed in the Gold Run) plays in the studio.
In game 3, someone in the audience called out the "N" answer just before Matt answered it, so they threw it out and asked another one.
In the 2nd game of the match, Chuck answers a "B" question wrong, and at first it's accepted, but then ruled incorrect, and thrown out. He then answered the next "B" question correctly.
In the Gold Run, Chuck passes on a winning question, but says he knows it, and Bill allows him to answer.
Chuck is a middle/high school teacher with more than 30 years of teaching experience.
Tom Kennedy makes a cameo appearance, sticking his head through a missing game tile in the Blockbusters board, to announce a new time slot for his show, Password Plus, which also aired on NBC.
As Gene approaches the Gold Run podium, the Gold Run losing horns play instead of the show's theme song.
As Bill introduces Bob, he mistakenly says he won $2,400 until Bob corrects him that it was actually what Lee and Warren had won $2,400 (although he had already won $500 for winning the first game before the previous show's end).
The traditional Gold Run buzzer is fully functional again.
In the second Gold Run, the buzzer sounds broken.
