Howard mentioned there wasn't going to be a film festival this year, and Artie noted he couldn't believe the inaugural film festival was a year ago already.
Artie then noted that there were only three-and-a-half years left on Howard's SIRIUS contract, and thought he must be looking forward to sleeping in some mornings in the future.
After Robin commented that she didn't think Howard would "enjoy" his retirement, Howard admitted that, no matter how he felt about potentially get out of the business, he always ended up re-signing his contracts to continue his career.
Since Eric was still on the line, he said he wanted to remind Howard of something: if it weren't for "American Idol," he never would've called into the show, explaining his very first call was about Kelly Clarkson.
Upon hearing that, though, Artie noted, "Eric, let me remind you of something: You're a no-life-having boob."
