Lisa G reported that everyone on the staff was invited to her cookie party next month - except for Will.
JD, noted that Gary, Steve the Intern, and all the HowardTV people were not invited either, so Lisa explained that they've all said bad things about her last cookie party.
Lisa then noted that Artie hadn't thanked her for the birthday gift she gave him, but Artie claimed that Lisa didn't spend more than four dollars on the gift. Howard then quizzed Artie on who gave him which birthday gifts:
- An autographed picture of Jorge Posada: Artie correctly answered "Ronnie."
- AC/DC concert DVD and Who documentary: No idea.
- Beginner's guitar book: Steve "The Intern" Brandano. (or, as Artie likes to call him, "Brandandino")
- A book on the history of New Jersey and a bottle of Italian red wine: No idea. (Howard then revealed that HowardTV's Isaac Mark had given Artie the gift, but Artie wasn't interested, noting that he also slept through Isaac's wedding.)
- Two Gap shirts: The Howard100News team. (Correct)
- Four framed photos: Jason. (Correct)
After matching 4 out of 6 birthday gifts with their respective givers, Artie said he wasn't going to take Howard's crap, because Howard was unappreciative of the $1200 Neil Young-related gift Artie gave him last year.
Howard retorted that spending $20,000 on Artie's birthday party was a pretty appreciative gesture.
