Description
Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about new innovations for cars, Not My Job about Pia Zadora, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will change Barack Obama's image?
Notes

During the Not My Job segment, Roxanne Roberts mentioned that her son had been downloading and listening to various songs purportedly 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.

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!"

Paula was a bit jealous about the court and lawyer crackdown in Pakistan, particularly that the lawyers were being hit with sticks. Roxanne asks Paula, "spend a lot of times around lawyers, huh?". This lead to a little laughter when the listener playing the Listener Limerick Challenge said that she was a lawyer.

Peter went a bit too far with conjugations of the Hebrew neologism "le condel", with Charlie threatening Peter if he did anymore conjugations.

When Paula had a hard time coming up with "Ho, ho, ho!", Peter and the other panelists gave her interesting hints about what mall Santas can no longer say in Australia. The entire bit got really funny when Paula went down the route of what Don Imus said to got him kicked off of the air.
