The first listener contestant had a last name of "Walkup", which lead to Peter and the panelists having fun with it; particularly, with Charlie Pierce responding with "yeah, right!". The same listener seemed to have been trying to search for the answer for the 2nd question online and Peter and Sue called the listener out on it. Peter said, in an exaggerated manner, "there's no Googling on Wait Wait!". The other panelists jumped on to poke fun of the (failed) attempt.
