I like Bill. I still like Bill. Sometimes I had too much Bill
I'm a pile of thinly sliced beef covered in Velveeta. That's right. I'm your Billy Cheesesteak
The Austen Goolsbee Not My Job segment was from the 2018-03-10 show, not from his first Not My Job appearance on the 2011-09-03 show. The Bluff the Listener segment was from the 2018-05-26 show, in which Helen Hong was the guest host.
John Grisham asked Mo Rocca for help on the second Not My Job question and Mo said that wants "C", which John chose. It was not the correct answer. John asked what the listener contestant would win and was shocked/dismissive of the prize. John Grisham did not answer enough questions correctly to win and he said that he would send an autographed copy of his next book to the listener contestant.
Mo answered a number of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions in a soft, dulcet voice. Peter Sagal asked if Mo was okay and Mo said that radio is an intimate medium.
Open up your anniversary card everybody. There's a crisp dollar Bill in there for you
This show is the special 20th anniversary show that was recorded at The Chicago Theatre in downtown Chicago, Illinois and featured a rotating set of panels throughout the show.
For the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, the panelists were split into three teams and had Paula Poundstone, Maz Jobrani and Brian Babylon as team captains. Although each panelist on each team got to answer one question during that segment, the score was aggregated at the team level. Since this is not a standard method for scoring, I have assigned the announced score and ranking to the team captain.
More detail about each panelist's performance on the show will be published at blog.wwdt.me
