Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about someone standing up for what is right, Not My Job about cruise ships, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next great discovery in our universe?

During the second panelist round, there was a clarification on hips vs booty thanks to Brian Babylon. Also during the same round, Amy gave a hint to Brian's question that ended up being the correct answer. Amy refused to take the point and wanted to give it to Brian; so, Peter conferred with Carl and Carl gave the point to Brian.

For the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, Brian Babylon had received 8 bell dings for all eight questions answered. The transcript on NPR's site missed the ding for the "China" answer, even though it was correct and Brian did get a ding for his answer of "dancers". The overall standings did not change as Amy wouldn't have answered enough questions correctly to beat or tie Brian.
