Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a new technique for women to avoid unwanted attention, Not My Job about Funyuns, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what is next for (soon to be former) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The first listener contestant, Affan, gave Peter a hint on how to pronounce his name correct with the question, "do you know what a baby deer is". Peter answered with "A baby deer is a doe? No, a baby deer is a fawn", to which the panelists, including Paula, razzed Peter. Peter then said "Welcome, a doe" to comedic effect before the first question of the round. Also, Affan guessed "poop less" as the answer for the second question of the same round.

For the third Not My Job question, Booker T. Jones said that he had heard Bon Jovi sing a song with the name "Funyuns" at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, which was option "B". Although the researched correct answer was "C", Booker didn't initially get a point for the question, but Bill Kurtis gave him the point.

During the Listener Limerick Round, Peter noted that the luxury hotel for dogs should be called "The Fur Seasons"; in which, the audience groaned at the pun. Paula stepped in to say that was the fourth time Peter had gotten that reaction. That prompted Peter to ask Paula, "are you keeping count!?!".

A portion of Jessi's guess for her last Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question was bleeped.
