Lisa G reported that JD finally reunited with his mother on Thanksgiving, so JD came in to claim that the reunion was "no big deal." Howard asked JD how long it had been since he last saw his mom, and JD explained that it had "only" been 4 or 5 years. JD said he mom looked the same, though she was tan from her time in Hawaii and had new tattoos on her leg, which were "weird." JD then revealed that he would see her again for Christmas.
Howard wondered what JD's mom's tattoo was, but JD refused to speculate and would only say that the tattoo was "a design." Howard became so irritated with JD's refusal to describe the "symbol," he nearly kicked him out of the studio. Howard asked JD if he told his mom that he got laid off the Internet just like she did, but JD claimed his sex life didn't come up. Howard then told JD that he should be proud of something, like how many friends he has on Myspace.
Benjy laughed that JD claimed to be 5'10" on his Myspace, so Doug Goodstein came in to measure him. JD was actually "about 5'8" and a half." Benjy also noted that JD's father, Chuck, lists JD's brother as his best (or first) friend on Myspace, so Howard asked JD if it hurt that Chuck would choose his younger son over his eldest. JD remarked that he didn't care who his father's best friend on Myspace was. Chuck called in to say he didn't select his youngest son as his "best friend" - he was just the first person to "add" him as a "friend." Gary then came in to ask JD if he knew his father's favorite movie, but JD had no idea that it was "Spaceballs." JD did know his dad's favorite TV show, "Cops," but not any of his favorite bands. Benjy then noted that the song playing on Chuck's profile, Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle," eerily spoke to the dilemma at hand.
