CARL KASELL: From NPR and WBEZ-Chicago, this is WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME!, the NPR News quiz. I’m Carl Kasell, and here’s your host, at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago, filling in for Peter Sagal, Drew Carey.

(APPLAUSE)

DREW CAREY, HOST:

Carl. Thanks everybody. Thank you. Thanks everybody and thanks for wearing your nametags.

(LAUGHTER)

CAREY: Great show for you today. U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach will be joining us later to play Not My Job, which will take about four minutes, yet will have more scoring than 90 minutes of soccer.

(LAUGHTER)

CAREY: I’m so excited to be hosting WAIT WAIT this week. Thank you for the opportunity to ruin yet another beloved American game show.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

CAREY: Alex Trebek, I know you’re listening. I’m coming for you next.

(LAUGHTER)

CAREY: If you’d like to play our games, give us a call, the number is 1-888-Wait-Wait, that’s 1-888-924-8924. Hi you’re on WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME!

HELEN MORAY: Hi, this is Helen Moray from Seattle, Washington.

CAREY: Hey Helen, how you doing?

MORAY: I’m doing very well, thanks.

CAREY: What do you do up in Seattle?

MORAY: I’m an attorney and a mom to two great teenage girls.

CAREY: Aww, that’s nice. Do you work from home or do you go to work every day, what do you do?

MORAY: I do actually work out of an office in my house, which makes the commute really nice.

CAREY: Oh nice, yeah.
