For We'll Wait, You Tell Us, both listener contestants chose Margo Kaufman's respective answer, but Peter Sagal had the correct answer for the first one and Roxanne Roberts had the correct answer for the second.

For the first time, all three panelists answered all three Lightning True or False questions correct.

Peter seemed to have been skipped during the Double Point Bonus Round, at least in the version that was aired.

For News Etymology, the listener contestant chose Peter's answer, but Roxanne had the correct answer.

Roxanne had a total of 21.5 points and Peter had a total of 23.5 points. Both scores have been rounded up to 22 and 24 points, respectively, as the Wait Wait Stats Database currently has the scores defined as integers.
