Episode 2037 was broadcast on 27 June 1997, and was the Series 35 grand final.

Dag Griffiths played Peter Cashmore, with Peter Cashmore winning 95 – 88. The Dictionary Corner guests were Ken Bruce and Terry Wogan, and the lexicographer was Catherine Stokes.

In the final round, after Cashmore gave his answer Whiteley incorrectly announced that ADJUSTING was not in fact correct, leading to shocked gasps from the audience and an awkward moment as the round had to be refilmed.
