Grab a spoon, you're about to have a big ol' bowl of Bill-ognese
Chosen: Maeve Higgins
Correct: Maeve Higgins
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about someone retiring from an exceptional career, Not My Job about financial fraud, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: who will Tom Steyer walk into next?

The first panel round was a jump ball question in which the first panelist to answer the question correctly would get 100 points. None of the panelists had the correct answer.

Maeve Higgins pronounced the word "tortoise" in an uncommon manner while reading her Bluff the Listener story; to which, Peter Sagal asked her about it and Maeve wasn't exactly sure how the word was actually pronounced.

The audience assisted with the third Not My Job question by way of clapping to which answer they thought was correct.

Maeve initially answered her third Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "Prince Philip" but then changed it to "Prince Harry". Normally the first answer would be accepted; but, Peter decided to accept her second answer.
