Week in Review; Bonus Phrase: Beepilepsy; We'll Wait, You Tell Us; Lightning True or False; Gossip, Rumor & Innuendo; Why Should We Know Who You Are?; Triple Point Bonus Round; News Etymology: Executive Privilege; Why Should We Know Who You Are? #2; Predicting Next Week's Headlines

For We'll Wait, You Tell Us, the first listener contestant chose Roxanne Roberts' answer, but Peter Sagal's answer was correct. The second listener contestant chose Margo Kaufman's answer, but Roxanne had the correct answer.

The usual Double Point Bonus Round was replaced with a Triple Point Bonus Round. It seemed like Roxanne was skipped.

For News Etymology, the listener contestant chose Margo's answer and was correct. This is the first time the winning listener contestant was offered Carl Kasell leaving a message of their choice on their answering machine or voicemail.

For the second Why Should We Know Who You Are?, which replaced the previous Wait Wait I'm Pontificating segment, the panelist that guessed correctly would earn 5 points instead of the usual 3.
