HONG: Instead of bomb-sniffing dogs, we'll have bomb-sniffing cats who don't care if that sweater was your favorite.

(LAUGHTER)

KLEIN: Adam Felber.

ADAM FELBER: After the enhanced pat-down, you are required to submit to 10 to 30 minutes of something called extreme cuddling.

(LAUGHTER)

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

KLEIN: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Alonzo Bodden, Helen Hong and Adam Felber. And thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Jessi Klein. I had so much fun guest hosting this show. And to all the little girls out there listening, remember, you can be anything you want as long as Peter Sagal is away.
