Notes
During the Not My Job segment, Roxanne Roberts mentioned that her son had been downloading and listening to various songs proported to be made by "Weird Al" Yankovic, but weren't. This caused "Weird Al" to say that one of them, about changing restroom signs, was not his. This led to a bit of embarrassment for Roxanne. Roxanne had another bit of geekdom embarrassment when she confused Wookies as being in Star Trek. Peter had to correct Roxanne. At the end of the Roxanne's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Peter stated that he thought about not giving Roxanne the last point as he kind of wanted Paula Poundstone to tie with Roxanne. Peter's conscience kicked in and gave the win to Roxanne.
