After Artie revealed he had already consumed an egg and pork sandwich this morning, he noted that Benjy refused to eat anything unhealthy in the studio, yet was still heavy. Gary came into the studio to report that, on the plane to Bubba's wedding, he noticed Benjy was eating just fruit, but that he ate too much of it. Benjy admitted he had a problem with food, but that he didn't eat healthy foods in the studio as "a show."
When Gary asked Benjy what else he was eating to get so big, he acknowledged he didn't have a good night yesterday, recalling he ate fruit, two turkey burgers and nuts, which led Artie to comment, if that was true, he would've "looked like Gwyneth Paltrow."
Artie then said that, if Benjy wanted to know what "a real bad day" was like with eating, he should've had his diet from a single day last week: three bags of cookies, three Hawaiian Punches, French toast with syrup, a buttered bagel, a coffee, two pieces of pizza, a root beer, chicken parmesan with meatballs, bread, more soda, two king-size Hershey bars, and a Kit-Kat. While Howard guessed that amount of food was 6,000 calories, Robin guessed it was closer to 8,000 calories, and Fred said he felt it could've been as high as 20,000 calories.Howard told Artie that Beth saw older pictures of him yesterday, and she couldn't get over how handsome he was when he was thin. Artie then acknowledged he knew he "wasn't Brad Pitt," but also said he was told by people he trusted that he was good looking.
