In just a minute, we're going to ask out panelists, now that we know what the Republicans have demanded, we're going to ask them to predict what demands will the Democrats make for their next debate. But first let me tell that support for NPR comes from NPR stations and CarMax, offering more than 40,000 used cars and trucks online and in stores with over 150 locations from the coast to coast.

Special thanks to Les Stularcheck (ph) at Chase Bank. And this week we say a very fond farewell to our friend John Zajac, also at Chase Bank. It was John who first let us into the Chase Bank building and kept it secret from the people who actually run the bank.

Now, panel, what debate demands will the Democrats make? Amy Dickinson.

AMY DICKINSON: A porta potty and/or Depends.


SAGAL: Peter Grosz.

PETER GROSZ: Bernie Sanders will demand a hairbrush. Hillary will demand a ban on all words that end in Ozzie and Lincoln Chafee will demand that his wife wake him up from his nap when the debate comes on TV.


SAGAL: And Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: The Democratic candidates as a group have insisted that for the first 10 minutes of the debate broadcast the network show clips from the most recent Republican debate.


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

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Amy Dickinson, Peter Grosz and Paula Poundstone. Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. And we will see you next week.
