Howard started the show commenting on how "phlegmy" Gary's voice sounded this morning. Gary explained he had lost his voice because he was sick, and that it wasn't phlegm. Howard wanted to know why Gary stayed up until 2:30 a.m. at Ross Zapin's wedding last weekend if he was ill. Gary said that he was so drunk at the reception he actually thought he was better. Howard told him that there was phlegm in his throat, regardless of what Gary said. Robin mentioned that PETA has been all over Paris Hilton lately because she gave her dog to her parents because it was too big. Howard felt that was a selfish thing to do, as did Artie, who doesn't even like dogs. Artie talked about a guy he worked with on "Mad TV" who got rid of a golden lab puppy because it was growing and was no longer that much of a chick-magnet.
