Howard got the National Enquirer's Mike Walker on the line, as he does every Thursday, to play "The Gossip Game," in which Mike reads four gossip items – three (allegedly) true, and one false – and the crew then has to guess which is the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. Paris Hilton failed an audition for Chicago because she can't dance.
2. Adrian Brody yelled at a limo driver for parking on the wrong side of the street.
3. Patrick Dempsey used a rake to save a small dog from a coyote.
4. John Travolta and Robin Williams fought over Robin's ad-libs on the set of their new movie.
Howard and Fred both thought the Patrick Dempsey item was too ridiculous, Artie registered his vote for the John Travolta item, and Robin picked the second story. Mike then announced Robin's triumphant return to the winners circle.
