Notes
As social distancing continues, the show is recorded with each person from a remote/home studio. During the Not My Job segment, Peter Sagal asked if Mo Rocca still knew the lyrics to the Che part of "Evita". Mo Rocca and Mandy Patinkin then started songing a portion of "Oh What a Circus". Mandy was joined by his wife Kathryn Grody and she helped Mandy answer the Not My Job quiz questions. After Josh Gondelman won the game, he said that it was an honor to play with such a competitive panel. Mo then said that that made him "really moisten" causing Helen Hong, Josh and Peter squick out.

Notes
As social distancing continues, the show is recorded with each person from a remote/home studio. When Peter Sagal asked Bill Kurtis how Jessi Klein did in answering her Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions, Bill said that "she had 5 right for 5 more points". Each question is worth 2 points and thus Jessi would get 10 more points; which, Bill did correctly say for a total of 11 points. Tom Papa notched his very first win on the show.

After Paula Poundstone answered her 8th Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question and while Peter Sagal explained the story behind it, there was some cute cat meowing sounds being made. Tom Bodett initially answered his 6th Lightning question with "Parler" then changed it to "TikTok". Peter accepted the corrected answer.

Dulcé Sloan answered her first Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "The Orange Man" and Peter accepted the answer.
