Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about pickles coming to the rescue, Not My Job about hot wings, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the thing everyone will be talking about at next year's Oscars?
Notes
During the first panel round, Faith Salie said "We'll turn the light off for you" as a twist on the Motel 6 tagline: "We'll leave the light on for you"; which, was coined by Tom Bodett. All three of the choices for the third Not My Job question were correct. Six of the eight Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions asked to Paula Poundstone made it into the edited version of the show. Of those six questions, Paula answered four correct and two incorrect. Bill Kurtis said that Paula answered five correct; which, means that the fifth one would have been one of the two questions that were edited out.

Description
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about one of the greatest questions in the world being answered, Not My Job about Garfield, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: who will be the next young billionaire?
Notes
Adam Felber's fifth Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question was about a Chicago Bears signing a new kicker named Chris Blewitt. Adam had a couple of guesses before Peter Sagal asked Peter Grosz, who knew the correct answer and was given a ding. Even so, Peter Grosz did not get credit for that answer; thus, all three panelists finished the game in a three-way tie. Bill Kurtis stated that a three-way tie has "never happened before"; in which, Peter Sagal said, "Bill, you say that every time that happens".

The third Not My Job question was in regards to a bird beating up David Attenborough while filming a BBC documentary. The correct answer for all three Not My Job questions are: B, B, C. For Helen Hong's sixth Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, she first answered "chicken" but then changed it to "turkey". Peter Sagal gave her the point because he knew her parents would be unhappy.

Peter Sagal seemed to pronounce Hari Kondabolu's name as "Kun-dah-boo-loo" throughout the show. Paula Poundstone initially answered "Syria" for her second Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, but then changed it to "Israel" when Peter started to say "No". Peter accepted Paula's corrected response. Hari nabbed his first ever win on Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!
