Notes
When the listener contestant for the Bluff the Listener round mentioned that she was playing the game as a wishlist/gift for someone, the discussion devolved from there. Peter messes up the retired Senator Gary Hart's introduction by stating Gary Hart served 8 years in the Senate instead of 12 years, as he forgot that each term is 6 years and not 4. One of Gary's retorts is "wait, wait... don't tell me." Peter also got under Gary's skin by calling him a "wise old man" instead of a "wise man". The listener contestant for the second Who's Korva This Time? said that one of his "Boy"lesque names is "Brandon Vandermuffin".

Notes
The listener contestant for the first Who's Carl This Time? round was a bit picky with how "Salisbury" is pronounced. The same listener was a bit miffed that she had to say "Slobodan Milosevic", stating that it "doesn't roll off of the Southern tongue". She did say it properly nonetheless. Paula Poundstone thought that Andrew Jackson was on the $10 instead of the $20. The listener contestant for the Bluff the Listener round is the co-owner of Portland's Three Square Grill and Picklopolis.

Notes
When the listener contestant for the Who's Carl This Time? round couldn't figure out the answer to a question about Condoleezza Rice and asked for a hint, Mo Rocca sang "Blank-a-roni, the Secretary of State" (in tune of "Rice-a-Roni, A San Francisco Treat!"). Huge kudos to @Ojoya for tracking this one down for me! During the Listener Limerick Challenge round when Peter was discussing the soccer/football matches between Muslims and LGBTs, Mo sang "everybody fatwah" to the tune of "Everybody Dance Now".

Notes
Aamer Haleem used his "default" answers of "Herpes" and "Boutros Boutros-Ghali" during the panelist rounds and the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round. Paula tried to plead with Roy Blount, Jr. to punt it so that Paula would win; in which, Roy responded with "I will not fall off of the cross", which was what Aamer tried to get Carl and Peter to accept as a correct answer during his Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round.

Notes
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. The first panelist round question dealt with a Greenpeace press release statement that had a really bad "Mad Lib" like fail. While Peter Sagal was describing how someone caught Barry Bond's 715th home run baseball and Peter let out two Freudian slips by calling Barry Bond's home run baseballs as "his (Bond's) balls" being marked with special holographs and DNA, and said "Barry Bond's balls".

After Roxanne answered all of her Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correctly, including a question about inflatable body in a car's glove box, Peter noted that Luke Burbank has been deflated and can be put back into the glove compartment. Luke's deflated response was "Thanks Peter, that's totally what I needed."

Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about Mel Gibson, Not My Job about M. Night Shamalayan, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what changes will Raul Castro make as he takes over for Fidel Castro?
Notes
Tradition of audience chanting "Luuuuuuke" begins, with Aamer explaining that the audience was not boo-ing Luke; Aamer comically crossed the line about large women carrying trays of food when discussing that a study showed that hungry men tended to favor more "curvaceous" women and Sue mentioned that hungry men should go after people carrying trays of food; Carl used the word "fart" in one of the Listener Limericks. One of the panelist questions was about a Chorizo sausage mascot called "El Picante", who was let go after one game to be "re-seasoned" but could be interpreted as it having a "temporary work visa", Charlie jokingly said that it was really fast, but Luke made a slight about it being able to swim; which lead to the audience "boo-ing" Luke, but Luke commenting that all he could hear was "Luke".

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.
