Howard started the show noting that he wasn't sure if Sal's wife, Christine, still loved him, and Robin pointed out that it was difficult to win women back. A caller thought Christine was too guarded during yesterday's session with Dr. Keith Ablow, and Robin agreed, saying both Sal and Christine needed individual counseling before they'll be able to open up their marriage for scrutiny. Artie added that he was blown away by Sal's revelations about his father's infidelity; "Every time he opens his mouth, something new comes out."
A caller said he was amazed at Sal's revelation about having to protect his mother from his father's affair. Artie called Sal's confession some "heavy shit," and Howard speculated that Sal's issues with marriage and women are rooted in his father's past. Howard then played a clip of Sal complaining that the pink streak Christine has dyed into her hair was a warning sign, so Sal came in to say he didn't even try to have sex with Christine last night, because it would've "been like poking a gorilla in a cage."
