When Dice's name came up, Sal asked Howard what officially ended their relationship.
Howard said the two of them were good friends even off the air, but that Dice lost it when his career fell apart. Howard remembered helping Andrew buy a home on Long Island.
Howard said he'd arrange for them to go look at these places together, but that Dice would act like a loon when he got there which made Howard look bad.
He also mentioned that Dice came on the show a number of times and bombed so badly that Howard refused to have him as a guest for a while. Eventually Howard let Dice back on the show as a favor, but he was once again unfunny.
Following his final appearance, Dice blasted Howard in a newspaper interview for being a bad host. Howard felt when Dice badmouthed him after all he had done for his career, he couldn't be friends with him anymore.

• Howard read a story that Madonna broke some bones recently after she fell off a horse. He said he wasn't thrilled with the old Madonna, but he really doesn't like the new Madonna at all because she pretends to be English royalty.
• Howard also brought up the fact that Joey Buttafuoco just got released from prison jail. According to the newspaper article, Joey was serving time after police found ammo in his home.

Howard thought that if you ever had to spend time in the slammer, you'd be sure to get rid of things like ammo when you got out in order to avoid ever having to go back.
