Check the mail, you just got your electric Bill
Chosen: Roxanne Roberts
Correct: Mo Rocca
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a couple finding each other in a surprising way, Not My Job about Tonys (or Anthonys), Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be Sean Penn's next big scoop?

Joe Pesci was referenced in each of the three Not My Job questions that were in reference to three different people named Tony or Anthony. Joe Pesci's character in the movie Casino was based on Anthony "The Ant" Spilotro. Also, the third choice in the other two Not My Job questions used Joe Pesci as a joke answer.

At the end of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round when Bill Kurtis was asked if Roxanne Roberts did enough to win, Bill said "Yes! 14 points and the win!" The 14 points should not be confused with the total number of points Roxanne had, 17, but rather the number of points she got from answering 7 of 8 questions correctly.
