Howard noted that Artie wasn’t in the studio this morning, so Gary came in to say that Artie claimed he was sick over the weekend because of the weather. Gary added that when you’re that big, it’s hard to stay healthy, but a lot of the guys in the office were starting to think that Artie may have fallen off the wagon. Robin agreed, saying she thought Artie was doing something to “keep himself out,” but she didn’t think it was drugs. Howard, however, said he believed in giving Artie the benefit of the doubt and, therefore, did not think drugs were responsible for his absence.
