GOOF: Dorothy accidently called Mrs. Alexandra by the name "Mrs. Alexander" during the second game. - Suzanne
VERBAL GOOF: Twice, Dorothy addressed Mrs. Chong as "Mrs. Chang." - Suzanne
SCORING GOOF: During Danny Kaye's game, John failed to flip a card for the second "no" answer. - Suzanne
MAJOR GOOFS!!! Besides John's transposition of words at the beginning of the mystery guest round, as well as his scoring mistake during the mystery guest round when he mistakenly flipped a card on a correct answer, there were two other mistakes made on this episode. After the first game was concluded and Bennett was talking to the young usherette, he mistakenly referred to the "San Francisco Giants" as the "New York Giants." We'll excuse Bennett, because this was only three years after the Giants left Manhattan for San Francisco. Another goof was made after the final game. As Miss Arora stood up to leave John's desk, you could very faintly hear a brief snippet of the show's closing theme "Rollercoaster." - Sargebri
In a rare scoring goof, one of the panelists asked if Red Skelton's name would ever appear in the Entertainment section of the newspaper. John said the answer was yes, but then flipped a card and said "one down and nine to go." John was never called on his scoring error and the card remained flipped. - agent_0042
In one of his rare goofs, John, as the mystery guest round is about to start, asks the panel, "Are the blindfolds all in panel, place?" - W-B
GOOF: John makes a rare verbal goof in this episode. Going into the second commercial, he says, "We'll be back after this alternate word - or rather - this word from our alternate sponsor." After they return from the break and are saying their goodbyes, Bennett, with a straight face, teases John by saying, "...and an alternate good night to you, John." - Garrison Skunk (2005)
GOOF: Twice, during the second game, John Daly called Dirk Bogarde by the wrong name. John called him "Derek" or "Derrick" instead of "Dirk." Nobody noted the error, and John later called him by his correct name. - Suzanne (2005)
Sounds of New York: During the final game, a car horn can be heard honking three times after John says, "In a manner of speaking, yes." - Garrison Skunk (2003)
GOOF: Gisele MacKenzie's overlay screen misspelled her name as "Giselle MacKenzie." - W-B (2009)
GOOF: After Mrs. Perian Conerly signs in and is speaking to John Daly, a crew member (or possibly her husband, who was waiting backstage to join her after her game) can be seen peeking through the curtains in the background. - Suzanne (2009)
GOOF: While speaking to Raymond Berry, Bennett pronounced Johnny Unitas' surname as "YOU-na-toss" and not the correct "you-NY-tas." - Suzanne (2005)
GOOF: During the first game, Arlene states that dice are "four-sided." In reality, they are six-sided. - Suzanne (2005)
GOOF: As John Daly was spelling out loud Rich Knerr's surname at the sign-in board, John said, "K - N - double E - R" which is incorrect. - Suzanne (2003)
FILM GLITCH: In the second game, right after John Daly flipped the cards for Joe Karitas (the chief house painter at the White House) the video image fades to black for a few seconds. - Dragonlew (2009)
A "FIRESTONE" GOOF: During the intros, Bennett mentions John's new gig as host of ABC's "The Voice of Firestone," but erroneously refers to the program as "The Firestone Music Hour." - W-B (2009)
GOOF: Oops! In the final game, John Daly accidently referred to Tom Poston as "Tony Poston" and apologized quickly! - Suzanne (2005)
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.

"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)
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)
