Notes
When Gov. John Hickenlooper was provided the three choices for the third Not My Job question, the audience started yelling out "C". That is the answer he went with and it was correct. After the Listener Limerick Challenge contestant gave her introduction, Paula jumped in and was starting to go Columbo on the listener. Alonzo said that Paula had been set off by something that was said earlier and was in a mood. Paula was stuttering and stammering through her prediction at the end of the show.

Notes
The listener contestant for the Who's Bill This Time? segment is a Latin adjunct instructor and was asked to say "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" in Latin and did so. When Faith Salie read the quotes that she used in her Bluff the Listener story, she attempted a New Zealand accent that was closer to how Dick Van Dyke sounded in Mary Poppins. When revealing the correct answer, the New Zealander speaking in the recording had a very mild accent and that shocked Faith. The answer to one of Faith's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions was the Teresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Mo Rocca's Bluff story was about... Teresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
