Notes
The aired version of the show had four instances of censor bleeps: Peter got bleeped during the Who's Carl This Time? round, Paula got bleeped twice when telling her Bluff the Listener story and one other bleep in that same round. Peter was slightly obsessed with David Cross's being a out and proud bald person.
