Chosen: Roxanne Roberts
Correct: Tom Bodett
Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about someone other than Facebook celebrating a 10th anniversary, Not My Job about K-Pop, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what we will be wasting our times on 10 years from now?

During the discussion about the conditions that journalists saw in Sochi prior to the opening ceremony at the Sochi Olympics and comparing them in the US, Tom started to describe Motel 6 without using their name; Tom Bodett is famous for being Motel 6's spokesperson.

Right after Peter explained the premise of the Bluff the Listener round to the listener, the listener asked if Roxanne was on the panel. When it was confirmed, the listener stated that he didn't have to go through the "charade" and picked Roxanne. This is in reference the number of times where Roxanne's bluff is chosen due to the believability of her stories, even if those stories are not correct ones. Peter Guralnick made a reference to this right before his first Not My Job question.

Peter Sagal accidentally said Ginger Roberts instead of Ginger Rogers. Both Peters had fun with this throughout the third Not My Job question.
