When Howard once again acknowledged how excited he is about his move to SIRIUS, he asked the other people on the show what their feelings were on the topic.
While Richard and Sal both mentioned that they're happy Howard will enjoy unlimited freedom once on satellite, Fred had a different take.
Fred noted that, although there will be some aspects of working for Viacom that he'll miss, he also feels anger toward how the show was treated during the final months. Fred explained that Howard was responsible for creating a new breed of radio personalities and he made many people rich, yet he is being shipped out like he had no impact.
Gary expressed the same combination of sadness and anger as Fred and also pointed out that the reason Howard wasn't more outraged at the way he has been treated lately was because he knows the end is near and decided to focus on his future as opposed to dwelling on the past.
Win, Lose, or Draw
After Sal continued his thoughts about the move by saying how hurt he's been to see Howard have his right to speak the truth censored, Gary commented that, while everyone else sounded sincere, Sal was coming off as a stalker.
Howard then read an email he received from a clinical expert who felt as though Sal's behavior did, in fact, fit the mold of a celebrity stalker for several reasons.
As Howard read the various stalker traits from the expert, he asked Sal about one in particular: has Sal ever taken items from the station, that are somehow linked to Howard, home with him.
Sal responded that although he has never engaged in such a practice, he has, while cleaning Howard's console following the show, studied the papers on which Howard doodles every morning.
Gary admitted that he, too, has spent time looking at the drawings and that he doesn't understand why every fifth one seems to be of him. Sal told Gary that since he has such an amusing appearance, he could definitely see why Howard would get the urge to draw him.
