Notes

During the Suck Up to Minnesota: The Recap segment, Peter Sagal's father-in-law joined the show to provide his impressions on the show, as the show was picked up and aired by Minnesota Public Radio.

For the first We'll Wait, You Tell Us, the listener contestant chose Roxanne Roberts' answer, which was correct.

Fort he second We'll Wait, You Tell Us, the listener contestant chose Roxanne's answer, but Charlie Pierce's answer was correct.

After answering zero Not My Job questions correct, Tom Goldman said that he would talk to Susan Stamberg on how she coped (even though Susan technically did receive a point). Peter then stated that Tom had scored a "Stamberg" even though it was called a "Clintoff" on the show that aired on 1998-06-27.

The listener contestant for Who's Carl This Time? #2 asked if he could get Margo Kaufman to record his outgoing answering machine message. Peter agreed, but only if the listener could answer all three questions correct; but, the listener only answered one correct.

The clip of a shouting Finnish choral group that was played during the Week in Review segment replaced the sound of the gong concluding each panelists's questions during Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank.
