Howard said Givens was one of the most fun people to go out on a date with. Givens remarked that they never talk anymore, and pointed out that Howard had no idea that she had a book coming out. Howard said he hoped Givens knew that he adored her, but it was too awkward for him to sit down to dinner with both her and Beth. Howard added that if Beth was calling an old boyfriend all the time, he'd be upset. Robin said that wasn't true, because Howard went to Beth's old boyfriend's play and allowed her to contact him.
When Howard asked Givens if she was in love with him, she wouldn't answer. Givens asked Howard the same thing, and he wouldn't answer either. Howard asked Givens what kind of panties she was wearing, and she said pink lace. Howard then revealed that he knew Givens wore thongs, and also that she loved pork rinds. Givens demanded to talk to Beth, and left a message inviting her. Givens asked if Howard's daughters liked Beth in the beginning, and said that Howard had once told her that his daughters didn't like a woman he was dating, adding, "It must have been another blond."
Ralph called to say Howard loves "broken chicks", but said that, other than Beth, Givens was the hottest chick Howard ever dated. Givens said that she once got angry with Ralph after he commented on her ass, and wished Howard had punched him. Howard said he'd kicked Ralph out of the apartment, and noted that, since he started dating Beth, he no longer hangs out with Ralph much either. Givens asked Ralph if Howard should call her from time to time, and Ralph answered that it was just like Howard not to call the women he used to date.
Howard read an excerpt from Givens' book about Mike Tyson. Howard said that Tyson has claimed that Givens' family doesn't like black people. Givens thought that was ridiculous, and also denied that she got $14 million in their divorce settlement. Benjy asked how Givens and Howard began being "friends", and Howard replied that they met on the show but doesn't remember how it happened from there. Gary came in to say Givens' publicist was nervous, claiming that Givens had to go.
