Because Artie weighed 299 pounds last week and spent this past weekend partying in Miami, Howard had him get on the scale to see if he'd finally hit 300 pounds.
However, before Artie weighed himself, he mentioned that he threw a party in his hotel room, but wouldn't comment whether he had sex or not. Artie then got on the scale and which revealed he was up to 303 pounds, which got a round of applause from everyone in the studio.
This led Artie to say he remembered High Pitch Eric weighing 315 pounds, and Robin added that, to make matters worse, High Pitch was considerably taller than Artie. Gary went on to note that a person is considered obese when they weigh 20 percent more than their target weight, and Artie acknowledged he'd been that way for quite awhile. Artie also said he knew he was heavy, but that he still played football on the beach over the weekend, even "gunning three touchdown passes" in one of the games.
When Howard asked Artie how many women he had in his hotel room during the party, he responded by asking, "How many is a gaggle?" Artie then assured Howard he didn't have sex over the weekend, even though both Howard and Robin acknowledged they felt otherwise.
