The listener contestant for the first Who's Carl This Time? shared the same name as the show's senior producer, David Greene.

The first We'll Wait, You Tell Us uses a multiple choice format in which the listener contestant has to correctly guess three sets of multiple choice bluffs. For the first item, the listener chose Margo Kaufman's answer for the first bluff, which was correct. For the second item, the listener chose Roxanne Roberts' answer, but Charlie Pierce's answer was correct. For the third item, the listener chose Roxanne's answer, but Margo's answer was correct.

For the second We'll Wait, You Tell Us, which uses the regular bluff format, the listener contestant chose Charlie's answer, but Roxanne's was correct.

The clip of the shouting Finns replaced the sound of the gong during Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank again.
