Back from the break, Jimmy and Howard talked a little about the condition of the studio. Howard said the station has been a mess these days. Jimmy thought this might be the last time he visits this filthy place. This comment launched Artie and Gary into a whole discussion about how awful the bathrooms are at the station. There are no windows or ventilation in them, so after certain members of the crew use them, you have to wait a long time for the air to clear. On top of that, they are usually filthy. Artie said that's not really true though, as they changed the pubic hair on the urinal last week. Gary remembered when they were building the studio and someone told him the bathrooms were the only thing they didn't HAVE to renovate. Howard said the one good thing about their building is there's a talent agency inside too, so there are always hot women in the lobby. Jimmy said he was in town to fill in for Regis who was out this week. He was really looking forward to co-hosting with Kelly Ripa. Both he and Howard confessed to having a thing for her. Howard said he was thinking about inviting her out to dinner, (with Beth and Kelly's husband of course), but he was hoping they could ditch the husband so he could have both women to himself.
Howard asked if Jimmy knew what he was going to do on the show today, but he wasn't sure - he said he'd probably just make fun of Regis since he wasn't there. Howard then invited Jimmy's biggest fan into the studio. When the topless fan entered the studio, Jimmy didn't seem too shocked to find out his biggest fan was none other than High Pitch Eric. Eric couldn't really explain why he wasn't wearing a shirt, but it sure made it easier for his idol to see his fabulous new tattoos! As Eric went to sit on the couch, Howard asked Jimmy if he'd ever seen High Pitch's reaction to fish. The word "fish" had barely left Howard's mouth when High Pitch bolted for the door. But, instead of running out of the studio, High Pitch used his super-human strength to keep the fish out! Then he made a mad dash, screaming down the hallway to the green room. Be sure to see the E! show when this episode runs. Gary brought a microphone to the green room to talk to High Pitch. In between heavy, heavy breathing, High Pitch told Jimmy he had some show ideas for him, but Jimmy said he only wanted to do a fishing show with him. Eric kept trying to get Jimmy to talk to him, he started into his DeNiro/"Taxi Driver" impression but Howard cut him off. But not before Gary commented that Eric's breath and gum bleeding was worse than ever.
