    • OOPS! MAJOR RARE GOOF BY JOHN DALY! John Daly accidently reveals the identity of the mystery guest! He starts the questioning normally by saying, "We'll begin with Dorothy Kilgallen." Dorothy asks a question and receives a "yes" from Steve Allen. Next, Mr. Daly simply says, "Mr. Allen.... OH!" There is a pause. Mr. Daly says, "Mr. Cerf." Bennett pauses and then says, "I'll pretend I didn't hear that." Mr. Daly says, "You can't!!!" Bennett still asks, "Are you a comedian?" Things melt down after this. Laughing, the panel now takes off their blindfolds and discusses John's "faux pas," as Steve termed it. Steve knew that this was the first time this had ever happened to John. John expressed his fear that he'd always been afraid that someday this might happen! John explained that he was still laughing over Steve's sign-in of "Forest Ranger." Steve then humbly says that it's all his fault. Steve was there to promote his new hosting duty on "I've Got A Secret." Even for the next and final contestant, John was still obviously flustered, because he announced, "our final panelist" when the final contestant signed in. - Suzanne (2004)
