PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, how will celebs get their kids into college? Helen Hong.

HELEN HONG: They'll hire my parents to tiger mom the crap out of them.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Luke Burbank.

LUKE BURBANK: They'll be forced to just open their own colleges. Three words - Gary Busey State.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Jessi Klein.

JESSI KLEIN: They will produce movies about going to college that take four years to shoot and cast their children in them as students.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

BILL KURTIS: Well, if any of that happens, we'll ask you about it right here on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Helen Hong, Jessi Klein and Luke Burbank.

(CHEERING)
