Artie told the crew that Richard Belzer told the best joke at the Pat Cooper roast, but he sniffed weirdly between all of his jokes. Gary noted that Pat broke down at the end and began shouting the n-word repeatedly. Artie said he thought more people were offended by his own joke comparing Gary's ape-like features with those of Michael Spinks – or the one where he likened Jeff Ross' joke thievery to Bruce Belichek's video-camera assisted cheating tactics.
Howard said some of the audience members at the roast thought Artie's white lips were a sign that he'd taken Subutex before going on, so Artie admitted that he had popped one in the limo on the ride there. Howard didn't understand how Subutex gave Artie white lips, so Artie explained that even though the Subutex pill is chalky, he can't chase it with water for at least 15 minutes, sometimes leaving him with a chalky residue on his lips.
