Notes
Carl Kasell introduced Tom Bodett as "filling in for Drew Carey, filling in for Peter Sagal". Tom Bodett went all folksy during the intro portion, with Carl trying to translate it into NPR-speak. Tom Bodett was bleeped twice while asking and explaining the second Not My Job question. Tom Bodett followed Peter Sagal's bad punnage regarding the Listener Limerick Challenge round at the beginning of the second panelist round. In this case, Tom based his puns on his famous Motel 6 ad line. At the beginning of the Listener Limerick Challenge, Tom said, "it's Rhyme Time" almost in the same manner he says "It's Mime Time" on The Animaniacs.
