Peter did a great reference to the Kanamits's book "To Serve Man" from the Twilight Zone episode of the same name. Mo Rocca got tripped up over Peter's joke and reference.

Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about dangers faced by teenage girls, Not My Job about the classic trail mix called gorp, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what other animals have secret lives?
In the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Maz Jobrani answered six questions correctly (Peter said right, yes or correct six times and there were six dings), but Carl stated that Maz only had answered five correctly. Even the show's transcript lists six "(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)" for Maz. The correct score breakdown should have been: 3 / 6 / 15, not the 3 / 5 / 13 as noted by the show. If the points had been tallied correctly for Maz, Maz and Amy would have been tied for first.

Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about new ways to fake greatness, Not My Job about people Ron Reiner definitely does not want to stand by, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: who will Mitt Romney choose as his running mate?
Paula Poundstone yelled, "Are you nuts?!?!" when the caller chose Luke's bluff. Rob Reiner answered the same number of Not My Job questions correctly as his father, Carl Reiner, did on an earlier show. Rob Reiner got bleeped while excited that he won the round.
