Howard brought up that there was a chocolate fountain at the wedding, and, at one point, Artie was seen dipping donuts into it – and eating them. After Artie gave Sal credit for the donut idea, Howard reported he was upset with Artie because he was "a downer" at his birthday party Friday night, largely because he didn't drink.
However, Artie responded he wasn't in a good mood that night because he was so tired, adding that he could tell Howard was "wasted" as soon as he got there. Howard then acknowledged he was drunk, but claimed it only took one glass of vodka and a glass of wine to get him that way.
Howard proceeded to recall Sal embarrassed him at his birthday party, both because he wouldn't stop talking to him about SIRIUS' subscription numbers, and because Sal sang the Foo Fighters' "My Hero" to him in front of everyone.
