The categories on the first round board (CIVIL SERVANTS, STAMPS FROM AROUND THE WORLD, MOTHERS AND SONS, BEER, BAR TRIVIA, and CELIBACY) were described by Norm as Cliff's "dream board" and were used much later in a May 10, 2005 episode of the Jeopardy! Ultimate Tournament of Champions.

Ever since this episode aired, the concept of a contestant betting enough on Final Jeopardy to possibly lose when they're far enough ahead they can wager nothing and still win became jokingly known as "pulling a Cliff Clavin" by Alex Trebek.

John Ratzenberger (Cliff) was not the only member of the "Cheers" cast to visit the "Jeopardy" set; Woody Harrelson (Woody) also visited the set when, in the movie "White Men Can't Jump", his girlfriend (Rosie Perez) got onto the show.
