The Man Who Needs No Introduction

BILL KURTIS: From NPR and WBEZ Chicago, this is WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME, the NPR news quiz. Take me to the beach and toss me around. I'm your fris-Bill (ph)...

(CHEERING)

KURTIS: ...Bill Kurtis. And here's your host at the Chase Bank Auditorium in Chicago, Peter Sagal.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Thank you, Bill.

(CHEERING)

SAGAL: Thank you, everybody. Thank you so much. It is summer - a time to reflect, take a break and think about where we've been.

KURTIS: How nice will it be in a few years when we get to do that all the time because every season will be summer?

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Today, we're taking it easy and listening back to some of our favorite moments from earlier this year.

KURTIS: There once was a time when I was merely a legendary anchorman, but I'm so much more than that now. Listen up.

KURTIS: From NPR and WBEZ Chicago, this is WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME, the NPR news quiz. Sorry, Mitch McConnell - nobody blocks this Bill.

(CHEERING)

KURTIS: Forget the Infinity Stones - listen to my infinity tones.

(CHEERING)

KURTIS: Lay me down for a triple-word score - I'm Scra-Bill (ph) Kurtis.

(LAUGHTER)

KURTIS: Is it hot in here? I blame glo-Bill (ph) warming.

(APPLAUSE)

KURTIS: Sleep tight, baby. You're about to get a dose of Bill-atonin (ph).

(LAUGHTER)

KURTIS: Hey there, Georgia. I'll take a bite of your juicy peach.
