The location in which the Best Of show introduction and inter-segment bits were recorded was not mentioned at the beginning of the show.
For the Bluff the Listener segment, each panelist paired up with a Wait Wait Junior to write and present their bluff story. The bluff story that Mo Rocca worked with his Wait Wait Junior included a person named "Polly Poundsteen" in reference to Paula Poundstone. The two Wait Wait Juniors that paired up with Maz Jobrani were actually his own kids.
To determine who would get the point for the Bluff the Listener segment, the audience was polled to see which one they thought was the correct one by way of applause level.
Keith Hernandez first chose "B" for the second Not My Job question and got ribbed for what that choice was (a kids cereal named "Domina-Trix") and was urged to change it. He changed his answer to "C", which was not correct either. All three choices for the third Not My Job question were actually real excerpts from "Fifty Shades Freed".
Louie Anderson first chose "A" for the second Not My Job question and Peter Sagal nudged Louie to choose another answer while a few people in the audience booed Louie. Louie asked why he was being booed. Louie changed his answer to "B", which was correct.
Roy Blount, Jr. said that one day he will beat Roxanne Roberts on Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! Roy actually won over Roxanne on several occasions. The last four occasions were: 2007-02-17, 2007-03-03, 2011-03-05 and 2014-07-19.
Mo Rocca finally figured out why a "half pipe" is called a "half pipe".
David Wise initially chose "B" for the second Not My Job questions and the audience disapproved of the choice and David was given a chance to change his answer to the audience's choice of "C". After all three options were given for the third Not My Job questions, both David and the audience seemed to agree that "A" would be the correct answer; but, both were shocked that "C" was actually the correct one.
Mo Rocca hilariously took a long time to answer the 8th Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question.
After Fabien Cousteau chose "B" for the third Not My Job question, Peter Sagal and the audience nudged Fabien to reconsider his choice to "C". Fabien changed his answer to "C", which was the correct answer.
Negin Farsad hilariously failed at figuring out what the correct answer was for her panel question during the second panel round.
Each of the panelists' final question for the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round involved a drunk person and a dog, in some manner.
