Howard mentioned that he had a meeting yesterday afternoon that upset him, but that his mood improved when he got home. Howard explained that Beth cooked him a special Valentine's Day dinner, with salmon in tomato sauce, potatoes and squash. Howard went on to say that he bought Beth flowers, chocolates and jewelry, while she got him a book as well as something he's always wanted: an emery board. In fact, Howard said that he loved his emery board so much that he used it the entire time he watched "The Bachelor" last night. This led Artie to ask Howard if he ever imagined a time when, instead of having sex with Beth, he'd spend a night filing his nails and watching "The Bachelor" while she was right there beside him. Artie added that such a situation shows that strong relationships, no matter who's in them, are really about compatibility and not just sexual attraction.
