Bill Kurtis listens to you!


Right now, panel, it is time for a new segment we're calling...

BILL KURTIS: Bill's Listening - with me, Bill Kurtis.

SAGAL: Many people are cooped up all alone at home and just need someone else to talk to. So as a public service, if you're one of those people, Bill is here to listen to everything you say.


SAGAL: Bill, go ahead.

KURTIS: What's on your mind? I'm listening. Go on.

NEGIN FARSAD: (Laughter).

KURTIS: Well, have you tried telling her that?

FARSAD: (Laughter).

KURTIS: Oh, wow. Uh-uh. And it smelled that bad. (Laughter) Good one. Good one.


KURTIS: Oh, dear. Never wash wool. Uh-uh. Yes. No.


KURTIS: Well, everyone likes yogurt. Oh, dear. I'm getting an email, which means I have to go. But it sure was nice talking to you. I love you, too.


KURTIS: Bye-bye now.


SAGAL: Remember, everyone, Bill was speaking directly and only to you. As always, thank you, Bill.


THE CHAD MITCHELL TRIO: (Singing) Tell old Bill when he comes home this morning, tell old Bill...

SAGAL: Coming up, our panelists are back to living the high life. It's a luxurious Bluff the Listener game. Call 1-888-WAIT-WAIT to play. We'll be back in a minute with more of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME from NPR.
