Playboy Playmate Shannon James came in to thank the guys for bringing her to Playboy's attention; she was discovered during a round of Playboy evaluations. Shannon admitted to meeting Pauly Shore at the Playboy Mansion, causing Artie to warn her not to bother calling the show again if she f'ed Pauly, adding that "when you're f'ing Pauly Shore, you're f'ing us."
However, Shannon assured him that she knew better than to be the second Playboy Playmate coming from the Howard Stern Show to make that mistake.
Howard and Artie took a second to watch video of Shannon's centerfold shoot on their monitors. Artie asked to be excused while he f'ed his computer in response. Shannon noted that Artie made her feel really confident during her past appearance. Artie said, "I was here? There's another reason not to do drugs."
Shannon said she wanted to be an actress, so Artie and Shannon acted out a scene from "The Godfather." Afterward,
Artie said that in the beginning, Shannon was taking Shatner-esque pauses, but after a while, she got good. Robin wondered which guy in the room Shannon would mostly likely sleep with and Shannon picked Benjy. Artie offered Shannon $50,000 to pick him instead (and to actually follow through with it), but she refused. Artie replied that she'd probably take it after her 7th audition for Entourage.
Shannon mentioned that she was shocked that Artie didn't remember her, as he had called her after her last appearance.
Artie slowly remembered, admitting that they talked off-air and exchanged info. Artie then admitted that he called her, but at the time, she was unpacking at her freshman dorm in Florida. Artie said he felt really creepy and added that it was clear that she wasn't into him.
