Notes
During the first panelist round, Mo Rocca asked for a hint and one thing that Roxanne Roberts mentioned was an itchy sweater. Seven years ago, on the show that aired on 2009-02-21, Mo Rocca made a comment about how homemade sweaters were always itchy. This lead to an ongoing saga in which fans wrote in complaining and eventually making a sweater for Mo Rocca. Maz Jabrani had some fun plying his funny accents on the show again, this time a German accent during the Bluff the Listener round. For the third Not My Job question, Jay and Mark split their answers, A and C respectively. The correct answer was "A" and Bill did count that has a third correct answer, but with an asterisk. Even without counting it correctly, Mark and Jay still answered two questions correctly to win.
