Howard began this morning noting how he was "surrounded by sickness," explaining that Artie, who was out Thursday due to a stomach virus, was back, even though he claimed he still wasn't feeling well. Artie acknowledged he had the stomach flu that day, but that he felt better on Friday, so he continued his house-hunting with a realtor.
After Artie discussed one of the homes he saw – a six-bedroom house, 15 minutes further from the city than where he currently lives – he talked about the fact that, as soon as he got back from looking at it, his stomach virus returned.
This led Howard to say that Ronnie the Limo Driver, Gary and JD were all sick with various ailments as well. However, Howard figured Ronnie was actually sick because of the news he'd heard about Scores over the weekend, reporting some of dancers there got in trouble for allegedly offering sex to undercover cops for money. Ronnie then came into the studio and insisted "nothing went down" with the girls in question, noting that, according to the news articles, the police never "offered the girls money," which he pointed out was a prerequisite for women being arrested for prostitution. Howard responded by saying he was impressed Ronnie had a legal defense for the women, and added what upset him most about the news was the fact that, in all the years he's been going to Scores, he has never been offered sex by any of the women who danced for him.
