Take a gulp of me and I'll give you wings. I'm Red Bill
This is the third regular show to air that has an all women panel. The previous two shows were 2015-09-12 with Faith Salie, Roxanne Roberts and Paula Poundstone, and 2017-06-10 show with Paula Poundstone, Faith Salie and Tracy Clayton. With that, Paula has been part of all three shows with an all women panel.
For the Mary Wilson's first Not My Job question, Amy Dickinson provided a little bit of assistance to nudge Mary towards the correct answer. For the second question, the audience yelled out a mix of answers that were a mix of "B" and "C", with the latter being more prominent. Each of the three questions had one choice that involved a horse; which, Mary asked what that was all about.
Amy answered her third Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "export bill" while trying to come up with "extradition bill". Amy was given the point. For Amy's eighth Lightning question, she initially answered "toddler"; but, then Paula said that it was close and Amy changed her answer to "dog". There was a bell ding given but Amy, nor Paula, were credited with the point. The score listed for this show is based on what was announced by Bill Kurtis.
Tom Papa tripped over Philipp Goedicke and Ian Chillag's name while reading the credits.
Many in the audience yelled out "B" for both the first and second Not My Job questions; while "B" was the correct answer for the first question, it was not correct for the second. For the third question, it was a bit more of a mix of all three "A", "B" and "C".
When Peter Sagal asked Bill Kurtis for the panelists' scores at the beginning of Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank, Bill called Peter Grosz, "Paul". Peter Grosz answered his third Lightning question correct, did not receive a bell ding but it did get the point for it.
After Peter Sagal read the three options for the third Not My Job question, the audience started shouting out "C". Zack Galifianakis asked Peter what the audience was shouting out and chose to go with the audience's choice.
Charlie Day initially chose "C" for his second Not My Job question; but, Peter Sagal nudge Charlie into choosing "A", which was the correct answer. Another instance in which all three of the choices for the third Not My Job question were correct.
