  • Season 9 Episode 53: EPISODE #430

  • GOOF: Oops! In the final game, John Daly accidently referred to Tom Poston as "Tony Poston" and apologized quickly! - Suzanne (2005)

  • Season 9 Episode 32: EPISODE #409

  • GOOF: Dorothy Kilgallen identified John Perona. However, Mr. Daly made what could be considered a mistake on this round. He gave a "no" to Arlene when she asked if you would go to this place at a specific time of day. Arlene called his attention to his mistake in the post-game conversation, to no avail.

    TRIP: John Daly and the Scotsman talked about John Daly's upcoming "around the world" trip.

    IGNORED?: For some reason, it appears that Orson Welles ignores Dorothy tonight. Some feel that he actually snubbed her.

    FUNNY GOOF: Greer Garson's spot turns into one of funny confusion. Because of a goof by Welles, the panel has her gender wrong for several questions.

  • Season 9 Episode 28: EPISODE #405

  • "WML?" OVERLAY GOOF WATCH: On the occupation overlay for songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, the title of one of their compositions, "Jailhouse Rock" (a Number One hit for Elvis Presley in 1957), was displayed as "Jail House Rock," with the first part presented as two words ("Jail House") rather than one word ("Jailhouse"). - W-B (2008)

  • Season 9 Episode 15: EPISODE #392

  • GOOF: John made a mistake during the game with the four professional Santa Clauses. As John gave Dorothy a "No," he flipped a card and said, clear as a bell, "three down and three to go." Of course, he should have said, "three down and seven to go." Nobody on the panel seemed to notice his mathematical faux pas. With the next flip, everything was back in order with "four down and six to go." - Lee McIntyre (2005)

  • Season 9 Episode 8: EPISODE #385

  • HOOVER DAM - PART I: GOOF: John Daly was incorrect: Hoover Dam is located in Boulder City, Nevada, which is 35 miles from Las Vegas. The dam is not near Boulder, Colorado, the home of the first guest. The two cities are 800 miles apart. - Suzanne (2005)

    HOOVER DAM - PART II: Though it was known as Hoover Dam both in the early years of construction in the early 1930's, as well as at the time of tonight's show and beyond, upon the 1932 Presidential election defeat of its namesake, Herbert Hoover, his successor, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, made it a priority to change the dam's name to what had been originally intended, Boulder Dam (after its base of Boulder City, Nevada). In later years, during the controversy of whether or not to restore Herbert Hoover's name to the dam, legendary NBC News anchor and commentator David Brinkley suggested that the former President settle the matter by changing his name to "Herbert Boulder." - W-B (2008)
