Howard noted that, in addition to Artie, he’s asked Ralph to give a toast at his wedding, and though he originally agreed to do it, Ralph has been getting cold feet lately. Ralph called in to say he gets more nervous every day. Howard told Ralph that the toast shouldn’t be funny: “Just speak from the heart, dude…and not that neurotic shit about me stealing [Beth] from you. Because that makes you sound insane. She thought you were a nice gay man.” When Ralph complained about having to speak in front of everyone, Howard pointed out that he had no problem talking on the radio every day – so Ralph asked if he could phone his toast in.
