Notes
Continuation of audience chanting "Luuuuuuke", in which Paula retorts Luke's comment of "...explaining that's people saying my name, not boo-ing" with "It's good that you think that... he's got an indomitable spirit, doesn't he? Little fella."; Paula stumbles on a question regarding NPR by not knowing who "Stamberg" is; the panelists and a listener ended up turning the beginning of Who's Carl This Time? Round II into "Beauty Chat" with more chanting of "Luuuuuuke". Paula answered a Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question about a certain computer manufacturer's "exploding" laptop, which was mentioned in Who's Carl This Time?, Round II by Tom Bodett, which Paula enthusiastically answered with "Dell!!!"; in the same round, Paula was asked about Chicagoan's last chance to eat a certain food before a ban takes effect with "Ahh, heroin!", in which hilarity ensued.
