Notes
Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! was one of thirty-five recipients to be awarded the 67th Annual Peabody Award. Tom Bodett's Bluff the Listener story involved enhanced mice touted as "Pinky and The Brain", which Tom did voiceover work on as well as "The Animaniacs"; during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Tom tried to get a point by passing off Darth Vader (the current answer) an "uber" Storm Trooper (Tom's response), in which Peter went on exclaim that "Darth Vader is a fallen Jedi, whereas Storm Troppers are clones, and it's just not the same. Moving on, Moving on!".
