Listeners of Luke Burbank's podcast, "Too Beautiful to Live," should recognize one of the names Luke used in his Bluff the Listener story.
Maz Jobrani answered six Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correctly, but was only given credit for five. After Maz answered the sixth question correct, there was no ding of the bell. The two points that Maz wasn't credited for would have put him in 2nd place with 15 points and Faith Salie in third with 13 points.
The panelist scores and ranking noted reflect those of the ones announced by the official scorekeeper, Bill Kurtis.
While Mayim Bialik was answering the second Not My Job question, she said that she would choose "B again". In the edited version of the show, she had chosen "C" for the first question and "B" for the third question. Not sure if she had first chosen "B" for the first question but it was edited out, if the order of the questions were altered in the edited version, or it was something else.
The last question in the Trump Dump game played during the first panel round was fielded to Roxanne Roberts which she got it wrong. She got a ribbing from Peter Sagal because it was based on an article that she wrote for the Washington Post.

Hari Kondabolu's bluff story was based entirely on the plot of the first Home Alone movie. While Hari was reading his story, Paula Poundstone didn't think it was true and Adam Felber said that he had seen it somewhere before.
The show did not have a Panelist Prediction segment that would normally happen at the very end.
