Notes
When providing one of the choices of the second Not My Job question, which was in regards to toilet testing done by the Gates Foundation, Peter said "Widnows" rather than "Windows". Right before the Listener Limerick Challenge, Peter called the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round the "Lightney Fill-in-the-Blank". Peter did the same thing at the beginning of the Lightning round. Even though Peter said that, per a coin toss, Amy would go first. Instead, Peter Grosz went first. Peter Grosz only answered five of the eight questions correctly, yet Bill Kurtis said he answered six. Due to this, Peter Grosz ended up in a tie with Tom Bodett. Tom should have been the outright winner of that week's game and Amy Dickinson would have tied for 2nd with Peter Grosz.
