Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a Jeopardy! champion starting a new career, Not My Job about questionable police tactics, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what words will appear on the newly revamped SATs?

While the panelists were discussing the recent changes to the SAT exam, Faith Salie decided to use some elaborate words that one might find the SAT exams, stating that everyone uses such words.

During the first panelist round, Peter was about to give Faith a hint and he said "here's your excuse" instead of "here's your hint". Hilarity ensued.

When Peter was reading the first Not My Job question, he said "In 2011, an undercover sting, ha, run by...". The "ha" was in reference to The Police's front man Sting. After answering the last Not My Job question, Stewart sung a dramatic tune as Peter was about to say that the answer was correct. While Peter rejected Stewart's answer and started to explain the correct answer, Stewart sung a "fail" tune in response.

Not too much laughter (or groaning) happened when Peter Sagal used "rhymean" as the Listener Limerick Challenge pun prior to the second panelist round. Peter then stated, "that one was good".
