Josh Gondelman forgot about the Not My Job quiz after he finished the interview portion of the segment with Malala Yousafzai. Mo Rocca had to remind Josh about it.
Alonzo Bodden answered his sixth Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question with "Atkins", which Josh accepted as it was similar enough to the Keto or Paleo diets.
Maeve Higgins has now answered zero Lightning Fill-in-the-Blanks questions correct 3 times. The other two times were back in 2019-11-16 and 2022-02-12.
I am the voice of God. The one he has on his voicemail
All 3 choices for the third Not My Job question were lyrics from Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" as a way to rickroll Nick Kroll. Nick chose "B", but was given the point; as none of the 3 choices were correct (possibly a show first).
Negin Farsad mixed things up by having Peter Grosz, with 3 points, start the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment instead of either Shane O'Neill or Amy Dickinson, each having 2 points. Normally the panelist with the lowest score entering the segment would start (or chosen in case of a tie).
Peter Grosz answered "vibe" for his sixth Not My Job question. The correct answer was "water" but Negin gave him credit for the answer. Shane O'Neill was only credited for 4 correct answers for 8 additional points and a total of 10. Shane had answered 5 correct with their corresponding bell dings and confirmations from Negin. If Shane had gotten credit for all 5, he would have tied Amy Dickinson for 2nd place instead of finishing in 3rd place.
Sam Waterston initially chose "C" for the first Not My Job question, but Karen Chee urged him to change his answer. Sam changed his answer to "A", but Karen continued to urge Sam to change his answer again. Sam then went with "B", which was the correct answer. For the second Not My Job question, Sam initially chose "A" and Karen whispered "capuchin". Sam either didn't hear her or catch the hint, but changed his answer to "C", which was correct.
The voice that makes men weep and public radio listeners pledge
David Axelrod initially chose "A" for the first Not My Job question, but the audience and Peter Sagal nudged him to change his answer. David then chose "C", which was the correct answer. For the third Not My Job question, David initially chose "B" but the audience shouted out "C". David changed his answer to "C" and it was correct.
