Now, panel, what will the Rover discover on Mars? Roy Blount Jr.?

SAGAL: Amy Dickinson?

AMY DICKINSON: Well, I've been looking for my car keys for a long time, so I'm hoping.

SAGAL: And Tom Bodett?

TOM BODETT: It'll find Waldo, the Beef, Carmen, San Diego and Obama's birth certificate.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

CARL KASELL: Well, if the Mars Rover finds any of that, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!.

SAGAL: Thank you Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Roy Blount Jr,, Amy Dickinson, and Mr. Tom Bodett.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks to Charles Beck, Kate Cox, and everyone at the Maine Public Broadcasting Network. Thanks to the staff and crew at the Merrill Auditorium, and thanks to this wonderful crowd here in Portland, Maine, and thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.
