One of my favorite Ray Combs moments, from a daytime Family Feud Challenge:

One of the fast money questions was "Name a liquid you drink when you're sick."  The contestant said "Vicks" and the judge didn't hear what the contestant's answer was.  Ray then did a great improvised buildup to the reveal, "He said 'Vicks,' they drink Vicks VapoRub on your chest, it's lethal, judge.  He said he drinks Vicks, and if anyone at home tries it, please be sure to call the number on the bottom of the jar."  The contestant scored no points, but it was a fun reveal.

"Cherish the past, accept the present, and anticipate the future.  They are listening to feedback wherever feasible, but they can't repeat the past."

Another PG-13 one: "We asked 100 men, name a part of your body that's bigger than it was when you were 16."

"Your penis."

From across the pond:

"Name a way of toasting someone."
"Over a fire."
"I'll tell you what, if it's there, I'll give you the money meself!"

(Turns out, it's at the bottom of the survey for 12 pounds.)

Another one from around that era (I think it was New Family Feud, though, not sure):

Combs: Describe the weather with a word or phrase that could also describe your wife.
Contestant: Wet.
Combs: (to audience) "Wet." (audience erupts)
"YOU ON FAMILY FEUD! THIS AIN'T A COMEDY ROUTINE!"

Perhaps you should practice what you preach, Steve.

From Family Fortunes: "Name a place where you would keep a pen."

"A zoo."

My favorite Family Feud dumb answer bit went like this.

Name an animal with three letters in its name-Frog
Something found in the refridgerator-Milk
A brand of gasoline-Regular
Something that comes with a summer storm-Snow

Of those answers only Milk was the good one. When the next person comes up Richard says "You can't and don't want to duplicate his answers"

Name an animal with three letters in its name-Alligator
Something found in the refirdgerator-Ice
A brand of gasoline-Ethyl
Something that comes with a summer storm-Rain
A sport with an all star game-football

Also there was the time the question was "Name a question such as how old are you that people may lie about the answer" and everyone thought the question was "Name a lie someone may give to the question how old are you". From that point on they reworded the question to something along the lines of "How old are you is a question people may lie about the answer, name another question where people may lie about the answer"

Also from Family Fortunes:
"Name something associated with The X-Files." After a brief pause, Les Dennis went, "We could show a clip of it, you know."
"It's on television!"

"Name something women like to squeeze."

"Their breasts!"

The guy who answered it is a pastor!

From the Canadian version w/Gerry Dee:

Sudden Death face-off: Name Popeye's favorite food.
Contestant: Chicken!

(For the record, the #1 answer was "Spinach.")
