After Artie congratulated Robin for being named by Entertainment Weekly as one of the best sidekicks in history, she mentioned the "toilets" she encountered while she was in Italy during the vacation were nothing more than "holes in the ground," which she acknowledged were difficult to use when she had to urinate.
Richard then came into the studio and mentioned when he was once in Italy, he had to use the "holes" as well, before also recalling the time he defecated into a can and baked it in an oven. Richard followed that story with the time he and seven of his friends all moved their bowels into the same toilet and didn't bother flushing it.
Richard went on to say he visited his parents in Kansas over the vacation, and noted they're now letting their chickens live inside their house. After Howard pointed out how Richard's parents treat their animals like pets only to wind up killing them for food, Richard remembered how, when he was younger, they did just that to his pet cow.
