Artie commented that he told Will his secret, but that, because he's admitted to doing some pretty crazy things in the past, he wasn't sure it met the standards of the game.
This led Robin to point out that the major problem she has with revealing her secret is that no one will ever let her forget about it in the future.
Gary agreed, noting that, while the secret will make the bit work, he isn't sure it'll be worth the coming years of humiliation he'll face because of it.
Will came into the studio and said that, in addition to Artie and Sal, Scott the Engineer had also told him his secret, and that all three of them were good enough for the bit.
Following a break, Howard announced that he, too, revealed his secret to Will, and Will commented that it was as juicy as the others.
Robin acknowledged that she has a few secrets she can share, but that she isn't sure she's comfortable with the idea. Robin also reported that she hasn't told anyone her secrets before, which is only adding to the tension.
A Matter of Trust
Ralph Cirella called in and wondered why Howard trusted Will to such an extent that he'd let him hear everyone's secret. Howard responded that, when he was younger, Will was stricken with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Disease, and that to get himself through his days in the hospital, he'd listen to the show every morning. Will recalled that he was such a big fan of Howard's that he wrote him a letter from the hospital thanking him for the show, and that Howard called him on the air.
Will went on to say that he survived his bout with cancer thanks to a bone marrow transplant and some luck. Gary reported that they didn't respond to Will's letter until six months after they received it, and that by the time Howard called him, Will was doing much better than he was when he wrote the letter. Gary remembered that while Howard had Will on the air, he jokingly yelled at him for not being as sick as he once was.
