Carl Kasell's Countdown, Not My Job about strange rock 'n' roll lifestyle, Bluff the Listener about little mistakes with significant impacts, Panelist Predictions: what memo will be found that will force Alberto Gonzales to resign?
Notes
Justice Stephen Breyer is the first Supreme Court Justice to appear on a game show. Several members of audience chanted "Luuuuuuke" when Luke was introduced by Peter; Paula mentions "IHOP" again; hilarious interaction between the panelists, Peter and Justice Breyer including discussion about his robe. Another hilarious bluff by Mo, in which the listener contestant is from the same city as referenced in Mo's bluff. When asked what two spiders did during Mo's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Mo answered, in his unique manner, "knife fight!". The answer was "snuggling", to which Mo came back with "that's a lot of snuggling!"
