After the mention of the "Meow The Jewels" album during the Not My Job segment, cat meowing sounds can be heard in the background. Also, at the end of the Not My Job segment, Peter slipped and said "Run The Jews" instead of "Run The Jewels".

For Maz Jobrani's second Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question, he initially answered "NAFTA" and quickly changed it to "TPP" and Peter Sagal accepted it. All three panelists answered six Lightning round questions correct.

Stephen Colbert: 3 *
Who's Glynn This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a recently revealed story from the Cold War, Not My Job about the show Entourage, Listemer Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: after mastering kitesurfing, what will Barack Obama do next?
Due to weather, both Bill Kurtis and the planned Not My Job guest, Lena Dunham, could not make it; so, Glynn Washington stepped in as guest judge and scorekeeper and Stephen Colbert stepped in as the Not My Job guest.

During the first Panel Round, Mo Rocca took umbrage that Peter Grosz got a point for his, not-quite-on-the-spot answer. Peter Grosz said he didn't deserve the point. Peter Sagal quipped back saying that, off all people, Mo shouldn't be complaining. Glynn Washington stated that he would give the point to Peter Grosz.

The Not My Job segment started off differently in that Stephen Colbert had to first guess who he was stepping in for as Not My Job guest. Although Stephen Colbert did not correctly answer the third, proper, Not My Job question, Glynn Washington still gave him the point. The last time there was an exception made for the Not My Job round was almost exactly one year earlier on the 2016-02-13 show.

During the second Panel Round, Glynn Washington said that he would take away a point from Mo Rocca for making a bris pizza joke. Mo Rocca would then "get" that point back during the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment for his eigth answwer, which involved the Brexit. That said, Mo Rocca entered the Lightning round with 2 points, answered six correctly and came out with 14 points. If Mo Rocca had actually lost a point earlier and actually entered the segment with 2 points, Mo would have had a total of 15 points (14 plus the one point re-instated).

While Peter was chatting with the listener contestant at the beginning of Listener Limerick Challenge, Peter excused himself as he started to sneeze. The listener called one of his sneezes over the phone.

Not sure if the order of the questions asked for each panelist was left as-is during the editing process or not; but, all three panelists answered the same number of questions correctly in the same order: four correct, one incorrect, two correct, and the last one incorrect.

When Mo was trying to come up with the correct answer for his sixth Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round question, he dismissed Instagram and Snapchat, but Snapchat was the correct answer and Mo started saying "Snap" a couple of times. After not immediately getting a ding, Mo said "Ding" and got his bell ding sound.

While Peter was explaining the answer to the Roxanne's last question of the round, in which the Venezuelan skier not having seen snow before and thus fell and got up more than 30 times during the run, Peter said, "if at first you don't succeed try... again" phrase with 36 instances of the word "try".

During Alonzo Bodden's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Alonzo answered the last question in the round with "Ran". The official, correct answer was "waited, got impatient and left". Alonzo wanted Bill to give him the points. Bill stated that hew would get "two points for that answer"; but, that was not reflected in the final score.

For Adam Burke's second Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round question, he initially answered "spacecraft"; but, then Peter started saying "No..." causing Adam to change his answer to "Tesla". Even though the first answer is what is supposed to be used, Peter and Bill gave Adam credit for his second answer.

After the Listener Limerick Challenge contestant gave her introduction, Paula jumped in and was starting to go Columbo on the listener. Alonzo said that Paula had been set off by something that was said earlier and was in a mood.

The listener contestant for the Who's Bill This Time? segment is a Latin adjunct instructor and was asked to say "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" in Latin and did so.

When Faith Salie read the quotes that she used in her Bluff the Listener story, she attempted a New Zealand accent that was closer to how Dick Van Dyke sounded in Mary Poppins. When revealing the correct answer, the New Zealander speaking in the recording had a very mild accent and that shocked Faith.

The answer to one of Faith's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions was the Teresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Mo Rocca's Bluff story was about... Teresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

After Peter listed the three possible answers for the third question, the audience started shouting out "C" again, which Hannah chose and it was the correct answer as well.

During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, Alonzo Bodden was trying to come up with the answer "Kim Jong Un" and, according to Peter, was close enough with "Kim Jong Il".
