Dr. Keith Ablow stopped by to have an on-air couple's therapy session with Sal and his wife Christine. Christine confessed that she started with her "emotional friend" because Sal turned into an irritable Archie Bunker-type. Howard and Robin asked Christine about the "143" email, so Christine explained that she was just trying to cheer up her emotional friend after he had a bad day. Sal countered that phone records show he needed cheering up 30 times a day.
Sal told the crew that he used to take Christine for granted, but not anymore. So Howard asked Christine if she thought Sal's behavior had changed lately. Christine claimed that Sal changed a little, "but now he's back to his normal crabby self." Christine complained that everyone believed Sal's version of their marriage and sex life, and Sal tried to explain why he cuts Christine off from information about what happens on the show.
