Jeff The Drunk visited the show today to play a game where Howard and the crew had to guess which of the 3 women in the studio was his sister.
Howard said that Jeff looked more disturbing than ever today and looks about 60 years old. Artie said the most amazing thing about Jeff looking 60 is that they're the same age, 37. Artie said he looks grayer than ever, Howard and Robin said he should see a doctor, that he looks absolutely horrible. He smokes, drinks all the time, and has an arm that doesn't work which he wears in a sling. Artie said the only thing that looks 37 years old is his shorts.
All 3 women came into the studio and Howard said they all looked nice, and all looked like they could be his sisters. Jeff clarified that one of them is his HALF-sister, as they have the same mother but a different father.
1st girl - Traci, was very angry at Howard for making Jeff look like a stupid drunk moron. Howard said they're helping him by telling him to shape up. She went on and on about how Howard's show is damaging and enabling him. She says Jeff needs therapy and wants to step in and help him. She was very concerned.
2nd girl - Traci, said on the way down, they smoked weed and drank together. She's proud of him and doesn't want to change him, says he is who he is. She says he'll do his own therapy when he's ready.
3rd girl - Traci, said she sometimes drinks with him, loves him very much but has her own life. His destructive behavior bothers her a little bit sometimes, but what can she do? He's an adult. She also said she brings her sons over to see him all the time and described his trailer in detail.
After much debate about who was the real sister, Howard picked #1 and Gary, Robin & Fred picked #3. Artie couldn't play because he met Jeff's sister at a gig once. They all said #3 sounded like him, knew his nephew's names, and had his grammar style too. Jeff's real sister was #3! Howard said #1 blew it when she said that Jeff's dream was to open up an animal sanctuary, he knew right away that she wasn't the one.
Howard gave all the ladies watches from Steven Singer Jewelers as gifts for playing the game today, and was going to give one to Jeff until he said he'd lose it and doesn't really care what time it is anyway. Artie joked that it's always "Beer o'clock and weed - thirty" on Jeff's watch.
Gary said it was tough to get Jeff down to the show today, he said he needed $200, a plug, and to tell the driver's name. Gary said the plug is for the car and the $200 is for beer. Howard asked if he wanted to just go on like this till he dies, Jeff didn't see why not. He doesn't want to work. Jeff said that Artie told him to call him yesterday, but had switched his number and didn't tell him. Artie said he might give him the new number but the goal is not too. Gary said Artie gave it to Jeff when he was even drunker than Jeff one night. He said he gave it to all of the wack packers because he thought it would be funny to get voicemails from them for the show.
Gary said it's only a matter of time before Jeff wears him down again and it'll probably be this Saturday night when he's wasted after his show in Albany. Gary said Jeff shows up to shows now with an entourage and tries to get the star treatment. Artie said he's a little out of control with the red carpet mind set. Artie did say that it wasn't all because of Jeff that he won't give out his new number, he has some "old friends" he doesn't necessarily want to hear from anymore. Howard wanted to know why he's got so much contact with Jeff outside the show and why he's giving out his phone number. Artie said he feels bad for the guy and will throw him a bone once in a while. Artie gave him tickets to a New York Yankees game one time, good tickets, and Jeff got drunk and loud (big surprise Artie!).
Vinnie Favale called in to say that Jeff has called him at his office everyday for the last 5 months, to give him updates on his bowling scores and where he's going to drink that night. General Manager Tom Chiusano said Jeff even called him to ask where his invitation was to Tom's son's wedding party. Howard asked Jeff if he really wanted to go to a party he wasn't invited to. Jeff said yeah, open bar dude!!! Artie told Tom not to worry about the invite, he'll bring Jeff as his guest.
