Today's "Not My Job" segment of the NPR quiz show Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! is actually not today's at all but from eight years ago out of their archive vault. The guest contestant is Molly Ringwald, and her interview with host Peter Sagal is charming and fun, and she's an absolutely wonderful sport, especially given some material that Sagal has uncovered. Furthermore, the quiz topic is decidedly off-beat since it seems to have even less connection to her than usual.
